Tram Route Cycle Safety Improvements

Closed 11 Apr 2018

Opened 14 Mar 2018


This consultation gives people the opportunity to express their views about proposed designs for cycle safety improvements along the existing Edinburgh Tram route.

Why We Are Consulting

By asking for public feedback the Council aims to ensure that we fully understand and consider all the needs and views about the proposals.

We will then use this feedback to inform and develop the design to improve conditions 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.

The final designs will be shared publicly via the council's website. Anyone who has asked to be kept informed about the project shall be notified when the designs are ready to view.

Some of the proposals will require statutory legal processes in order to be constructed. As part of these statutory processes there will be another opportunity for people to respond to these aspects of the proposals.

The aim is to start construction in late 2018.
