Opinions sought on West Edinburgh Link active travel plan
September 4 2019
The City of Edinburgh Council is inviting the public to have their say on a series of planned public realm improvements throughout the west end.
The West Edinburgh Link project is being delivered in partnership with Aecom, Sustrans and Transport Scotland to improve pedestrian and cycle links as well as public spaces around East Craigs, South Gyle, Bankhead, Sighthill and Wester Hailes.
Initial concepts outline plans for 4km of segregated cycleways crisscrossing the area together with a new bridge spanning the railway line at Gyle Park and traffic calming measures.
Tierney Lovell, infrastructure manager for Places for Everyone at Sustrans Scotland, said: “The West Edinburgh Link will vastly improve conditions for walking, cycling, and wheeling in the west of the city and help create safe, coherent and direct routes to schools, shops, and businesses in the local area, as well as improve the area’s sense of place.”
A series of drop-in events will commence tomorrow to inform detailed proposals expected early in 2020.
