This morning Bob Downie and Tricia Fort attended Glasgow City Council’s Petitions Committee in support of the recent 20mph petition that Bob championed.  We were met with unanimous cross-party support, with councillors from Labour, the SNP and the Green Party, as well as the council officer, Andrew Waddell, thanking us for bringing this forward.

The petition is now to be passed to the Policy and Resources Committee and council staff have been asked to prepare details and a revised timescale for 20mph implementation, ie a timescale significantly shorter than the 40 years based on their current rate of progress.

The presentation may be seen here on Bob’s blog.
