Cycling and walking improvements in Davidson's Mains Park - Final Design

Closes 1 Nov 2018

Opened 5 Feb 2018


Following on from the previous consultation, where we gave people the opportunity to express their views on the draft designs for cycling and walking improvements in Davidson's Mains Park, we are now in a position to show you our final designs.

These designs will improve the width, surfacing and lighting of the path in Davidson's Mains Park which connects Queensferry Road with East Barnton Avenue.

The upgraded path will form part of the QuietRoutes Network that is being implemented across Edinburgh. The aim of the network is to provide routes that are easy, safe and convenient to use by people of any level of cycle experience. It will also improve conditions for people walking.

Widening of the waiting area at the signalised crossing of Queensferry Road has been allocated to a seperate project where we will be looking at crossing improvements at the junction of Clermiston Road / Queensferry Road.

People can give feedback to the designs during the statutory processes stage. Details of this can be found in the 'Project Summary & Next Steps' document (see links below).
