Brunstane Road and Coillesdene Area Traffic Calming

Closed 13 Dec 2020

Opened 20 Nov 2020


Residents on Brunstane Road, between Milton Road East and the railway bridge, have experienced long-standing traffic problems. Council officers have reviewed the resident concerns and have developed a solution to alleviate these problems.  This is proposed through the trial implementation of temporary infrastructure to create a quiet neighbourhood within the Joppa Triangle area. The proposed measures would also mitigate against any increase in traffic generated by new housing development to the south of Milton Road East.

The proposal includes a trial closure of Brunstane Road at the railway bridge in conjunction with measures at various locations in the Coillesdene area to reduce unnecessary through traffic.

In developing this proposal, we have already had valuable input from the local community. We now wish to seek wider feedback from all affected stakeholders. Your feedback on the proposed traffic measures will inform how to best manage the road network in the area.

What happens next

The City of Edinburgh Council’s Transport and Environment Committee will meet on 28 January 2021 to review the public consultation feedback and make further decisions on the proposed trial infrastructure.
