Four more 20mph zones expected in Filwood, Brislington, Knowle and Ashton Vale next year
Four more areas of Bristol are due to become 20mph zones next year.
They are already being tried out in Easton and Bedminster but now the city council plans to introduce them in Filwood, Brislington, Knowle and Ashton Vale.
The 20mph speed limits are being phased in to improve pedestrian and cycle safety as well as reduce speeding in narrow residential streets.
The council is launching a series of displays about the new 20mph speed limit which will be touring local libraries in the four new areas.

The decision to introduce city-wide 20 mph speed limits was taken by the city council last year.
They will cover the whole of the city by 2015 and will apply to all residential roads and many main roads that are currently 30mph.
Dual carriageways and 40mph and 50mph roads are not included.
A 20mph limit on roads in central Bristol is expected to be introduced during the autumn.
Other areas to be phased in later include:
+ Henleaze, Westbury, Stoke Bishop, Lockleaze, Horfield;
+ Eastville, Speedwell, St George, Frome Vale, Hillfields;
+ Southmead, Brentry, Henbury, Shirehampton, Lawrence Weston, Avonmouth;
+ Hengrove, Hartcliffe, Whitchurch, Bishopsworth, Stockwood and Withywood.
The programme will cost £2.3 million which will be funded by a Government grant.
