Cycling and walking improvements in Roseburn Park - Short Term Trial

Closed 27 Jun 2018

Opened 30 May 2018

Overview

This consultation gives people the opportunity to express their views about the current trial path changes and planters in Roseburn Park.

These changes were implemented as part of a short-term trial aimed at increasing safety for all path users by:

-  moving cyclists away from blind corners, where conflicts and accidents are known to have occurred.

- delineating areas for cyclists and pedestrians at junctions so there is reduced likelihood of collisions.

The main path through the park is part of QuietRoute 8. The QuietRoutes Network is a cycling network being implemented across Edinburgh which aims 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 trial changes.

We have also been undertaking video monitoring of path user behaviour before the changes were made and during the trial period.

We will use the feedback to this consultation and monitoring data to review the trial and implement a final design.

What Happens Next

Following review of the consultation responses and the monitoring data, we shall determine a final design for implementation.

Information about this final design shall be publicly shared alongside the results of the consultation and monitoring.

All people who have asked to be kept informed about the project shall be notified once this information is available.
