Councillors at the City of Dunfermline Area Committee have agreed to the implementation of 20mph zones in several streets around Dunfermline.

Many of the streets are short cul-de-sacs which lie just outwith 20mph areas currently in place. These streets are: Linburn Grove; Afton Grove; Earn Grove; Grange Wynd/Grange Park and Whirlbut Street/Whirlbut Crescent.

Also included would be housing developments at South Fod & Lynebank area, and Dover Heights. Both these developments were constructed to a design appropriate for a 20mph speed limit.

Committee Convener Cllr James Calder commented: “It is positive that a number of estates that are currently 30mph will now be set to 20mph, as well as new estates being set to 20mph. I am keen that Dunfermline leads the way in road safety for families and this continues to show great progress locally.”
