Belfast city centre: Plans for 20mph speed limit

City centre traffic
The public has just over three weeks to respond to the city centre proposals

Plans to reduce the speed limit in the whole of Belfast city centre to 20 miles per hour have been published by the Department for Regional Development.

The draft legal order was published on the department's website on Wednesday.

There is a 22-day period for the public to object to the proposals.

Depending on objections, it could be made a proper legal order and become enforceable once new 20mph signs are put in place.
