CITY-WIDE 20mph speed limits in Winchester have come a step closer.

Civic chiefs gave the go-ahead for a scheme in Highcliffe and Winnall.

The Daily Echo reported last year that county chiefs have earmarked £200,000 for ten schemes in residential areas across the county, including Stanmore, Medstead and the Cherbourg Road area of Eastleigh.

Winchester has a further £150,000 from the local sustainable transport fund.
