Detailed design

At the Council's Transport and Environment Committee meeting on 30th August, all parties agreed to proceed with the project to create a family-friendly, largely protected cycle way west to east cycle route through the city centre.

The Labour/SNP Capital Coalition acknowledged the strong division of opinion on options at Roseburn, and deferred a decision on outstanding design issues, in particular A vs B.  Nevertheless Lesley Hinds, the Transport Convener has confirmed that the timetable is unchanged: final design decisions by the end of year.

  • The final decision will be made by the Future Transport Working Group, which is made up of some key Councillors and Council Officers.
  • Detailed discussions will take place at a new stakeholder group comprising some members of above group plus other political groups, local ward members, relevant local groups.
