TRAFFIC on several Dunfermline streets is set to be slowed down with the proposed introduction of 20mph zones.

Members of the City of Dunfermline area committee will be asked to agree to the possible measures on Linburn Grove, Afton Grove, Earn Grove, Grange Wynd/Grange Park and

Whirlbut Street/Whirlbut Crescent at their meeting today (Tuesday).

A report for councillors stated: "Following concerns regarding speeding, we have identified several streets that would benefit from 20mph zones. These streets are relatively short cul-de-sacs and lie just outwith 20mph zones previously implemented.

"Implementing a 20mph zone will address local concerns, improve road safety and provide a speed limit appropriate for these streets."

Councillors will also be asked to pass a report for 20mph zones to be introduced on roads being constructed in housing developments in the South Fod and Lynebank area and at Dover Heights, in Dunfermline.
