Randolph Place Improvements (CCWEL)

Closed 27 Feb 2018

Opened 20 Feb 2018


The council is currently working on a project to deliver a safe and direct cycle route through the City Centre from Roseburn in the West to Leith Walk in the east, alongside improvements to the streetscape to benefit pedestrians and local businesses and residents. This is the City Centre West to East Cycle Link and Street Improvements Project (CCWEL). For more info see here.

This route will go along Melville St and Randolph Place, before going on to Charlotte Square and George Street.

Randolph Place is an important and interesting street within the West End with significant potential for improvement to make it a better space for people walking, cycling, as well as encouraging people to linger and enjoy their surroundings.


Why your views matter

To ensure that our designs are as good as they can be we have developed three outline options for improving Randolph Place, and we want to know what you think about these options including which one is your preference and any other comments you may have.

Please download the below document to view the three options which we are currently consulting on, and then proceed to fill in the questionnaire.

What happens next

Following the consultation period we will collate all of the responses and, based on the feedback we have received, develop a final design for Randolph Place. This may involve aspects from more than one of the options that we have received.

This design will then be included in the ongoing detailed design work for Section 2 of the CCWEL project (from Haymarket to Charlotte Square).

This section of the project is programmed to be delivered during Summer 2019.
