Closed 2 Dec 2016

Opened 25 Oct 2016

Results updated 18 Dec 2017

Please find attached the detailed drawings relating to the improvements to Cycling and Walking provision on the North Edinburgh Path Network.



This consultation gives people the opportunity to express their views about proposed improvements on the North Edinburgh Path Network for walking and cycling.

These designs are part of planned improvements to the cycling and walking routes, known as the QuietRoute Network, that are 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.

Why we are consulting

The Council needs to understand and consider all the needs and views expressed by people regarding the street re-design.

We will use the comments to develop an optimum design that improves the street for walking and cycling.

What happens next

Following the consultation, the designs will be further refined and developed by a design team of Council and external technical experts.

There will be further opportunities to respond to the designs as they are refined.

The aim is for final designs to be completed by March 2017.

Subject to Committee approval and funding availability, the intention is to begin construction in 2017/18.
