Things have been a little quiet with the CCWEL since the Edinburgh Council Transport and Environment Committee voted to keep moving forward with the project in June 2018, but progress continues with the designs and public consultations. There is a target date of 26th April for the Public Hearing about the Roseburn to Haymarket section and the four week Statutory Consultation for the Haymarket to Randolph Place section is due to start in early March and run for four weeks. If you are not already signed up for the Council's updates, you can get them here.
Local businesses are still campaigning about the loss of parking, yet nearby short-stay parking will increase from 12 to 49 spaces, with all but two spaces increasing from 30 minutes to two hours. We welcome the decision by Edinburgh Council to support the businesses during construction.
We've published an article on our website reminding people that there is still widespread support for the cycle route and its wider benefits and that local traders will have opportunities from new passing trade as well as a four-fold increase in nearby short stay parking.
