Craiglockhart - Developer Funded Traffic Calming

Closed 31 Oct 2014

Opened 1 Oct 2014

Feedback Updated 15 Dec 2014

We Asked

For your views on traffic calming four streets in the Craiglockhart area using finance secured from the Redhall House Drive housing development.

You Said

More than a third of the residents responded to the consultation with 77% in support of traffic calming. The residents of Elliot Place, Park and Road, while supportive of traffic calming in the estate, felt that the scheme should only be taken forward if traffic calming was included in these streets.

We Did

We have decided to recommend the introduction of traffic calming in the Craiglockhart area with the inclusion of traffic calming features in Elliot Road, Elliot Place, Elliot Park, Craiglockhart Dell Road and Craiglockhart Loan. The extended traffic calming scheme will be presented to the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee on 13 January 2015. If the Committee approves the construction of these road humps it is likely that the scheme will be built in March or April 2015.

Overview

We are asking for your views on the introduction of traffic calming on four residential streets within the Craiglockhart area.

Why We Are Consulting

Local residents in the Craiglockhart Area have campaigned over a number of years for traffic calming in its residential streets to reduce vehicle speeds, improve road safety and to make the area more attractive for those walking and cycling.

A financial contribution has been secured, through the planning process, from the Redhall House Drive development, for traffic calming in the Craiglockhart area.

The amount secured is not sufficient to pay for traffic calming in every street in the area.  The following streets have therefore been chosen for potential treatment:-

• Craiglockhart Drive South
• Craiglockhart Park
• Craiglockhart Road
• Patie’s Road

It is therefore proposed to install full width road humps in these streets at the locations shown on the enclosed plan.

What Happens Next

Consultation responses are currently being analysed and the results will be available towards the end of November 2014.
