Walk Wheel Cycle Burdiehouse

Closes 17 Jul 2022

Opened 6 Jun 2022

Overview

We are developing plans to improve the provision and accessibility of sustainable modes of travel for residents and visitors to the Burdiehouse area including proposed changes to Burdiehouse Road and Frogston Road East.

The project builds upon the City of Edinburgh Council’s City Mobility Plan. This aims to help Edinburgh connect through a safer and more inclusive carbon neutral transport system - delivering a healthier, thriving, fairer and compact capital city and a higher quality of life for all residents. The proposals also support delivery of the Local Development Plan (LDP) which includes detail on the policies and proposals that will be used in delivering future developments for the city. Our proposals follow the principles of the sustainable transport hierarchy

Why your views matter

Recent research in Edinburgh has shown that 66% of residents make trips by walking at least five days a week and 26% per cent of residents cycle at least once a week. The research also shows what residents feel needs to be done to improve conditions to enable even more people to travel by foot, wheel or bike, particularly for shorter journeys.

We would encourage you to view our proposals and then complete our survey using the link below to help us to understand your travel needs and how best to support them through our proposals. We are at an early stage of development of proposals so are keen to hear from as many voices in the community as possible.

Please also see below in the Events section details of our drop in session to come along and see our proposals and provide your feedback.
