Cambridge Council has taken a step towards implementing a 20mph speed limit in the majority of the city's retail and shopping streets.
The move will follow smaller schemes which have been rolled out across the city centre around Mill Road and Wulfstan Way. And to move the project forwards, the council have appointed a new officer, Ben Bishop.
As well as improving safety, the plan is expected to encourage an increase the number of people who chose to walk or cycle around the city.
The 'Total 20' scheme has been trialled in other cities around the country, most recently in Portsmouth, with Newcastle, Bristol, Liverpool, Brighton and Oxford amongst the other places to have committed to the plan.
The Council will engage in public consultation and engagement to raise public support for the project, with this due to begin in 2013 with information being sent out to key groups. Further information will be released early in the year.
