2 ways to support cycling in West Edinburgh

After a quiet few months on the cycle path front, there are two ways in which we can all support cycling improvements in our area.

CCWEL - The final stage of consultation

As many of you will have seen from flyers through your doors, the Council has completed the detailed design drawings for the City Centre West to East Link (CCWEL). Now it is time for the final stage of consultation - the statutory Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and Redetermination Order (RSO) process.

There will be two public drop in sessions to view the designs.

  • Tuesday 17th April - 6 Murrayfield Place - 1pm to 7pm
  • Thursday 19th April - Apex Haymarket Hotel - 1pm to 7pm

You can get more information, including details of how to comment on the Council's CCWEL web page.

From 20th April, the TRO and RSO documents will be available here and we will have our own web page to make the complex drawings a bit easier to understand. Keep an eye on our homepage, Twitter and Facebook.

Please talk to your neighbours and friends. Explain the benefits and direct them to our website to see the drawings explained. Also, do feed in your comments and positive support to the Council at the address on the CCWEL page!

Pedal on Parliament - help make this the biggest ever West Edinburgh Feeder ride

Saturday 28th April is Pedal on Parliament day. We'd love all our supporters to come along with friends & family to help make this the biggest ever West Edinburgh Feeder ride and show our politicians how much we care about safer cycling infrastructure.

The ride will be family friendly, with support from the Police to get us through any difficult junctions.

The meeting points are

  • St Margaret’s Park, Corstorphine: 10am for 10.15 departure
  • Balgreen Tram stop: 10.35 departure
  • Roseburn Park: 10.30am for 10.50 departure
  • Russell Road ZigZags: 10.45 for 11am departure

See the Facebook event page for full details. If you are not travelling from the west, there are lots of other feeder rides too.
