Transport chiefs are set to press ahead with a huge 20mph zone after winning public support for the scheme.

The £100,000 pilot scheme, which will be enforced by the police, will see 25 miles of city roads stretching from Blackford Hill in the south to Holyrood Park hit with the new speed limit.

The trial is now expected to start in March 2012 and, if successful, it could be extended across the city permanently.
