More than a hundred new speed bumps are to be introduced in Edinburgh as part of radical plans to improve road safety in residential areas.

The £275,000 project will see the introduction of extensive sets of speed bumps, build-outs and other speed-reducing measures on dozens of streets if plans are approved.

The scheme is completely separate from the £100,000 trial of a huge 20mph zone on the south side of Edinburgh, which sees the change in the speed limit enforced by police.
