Borders towns and villages given 20mph speed limit

Borders 20 Mph speed limits

A region-wide rollout of a 20mph speed limit to more than 90 towns and villages across the Borders has begun.

It is part of efforts to improve road safety as well as encouraging people to walk and cycle.

The trial will run for 18 months with its impact assessed before any moves are made permanent.

Scottish Borders Council said the project had the potential to help communities lead "healthier lifestyles".

The first places getting the signs include Stow, Sprouston, Eddleston, Coldingham and Newcastleton.

The scheme is being funded thanks to £1.2m from the Scottish government's Spaces for People programme.
