Meadows to George Street progress update

(adapted from an email from AECOM)

I write to offer you a brief progress update on the City of Edinburgh Council Community Links Plus project, Meadows to George Street: Streets for People. Our first stage of engagement is now at an end and we would like to thank everyone who has offered their views and perspectives so far. Some of the initial key messages we have received to date are:

  • Wider pavements requested to cope with the volumes of pedestrians
  • Better and safer pedestrian crossing opportunities
  • Cycling provision that is separate from motor traffic and pedestrians
  • Rationalise/remove street clutter which can cause issues during busy periods
  • Access for ALL must guide the project proposals
  • Visitors observed how busy the streets were, particularly with road traffic

You can find more detail about what we did and what we’ve learned on the project webpage here. Our next update will be linked to the forthcoming stage of consultation on initial concept designs for the project.

Please ear in mind you can also sign up for updates on the project webpage above at any time.

Meadows to George Street project – your views are welcome!

(adapted from an email from AECOM)

AECOM invites you to visit the ‘Meadows to George Street project’ webpage (www.edinburgh.gov.uk/meadowsgeorgestreet), and to share this widely.

This project is one of the winners of Sustrans Scotland’s 2017 Community Links PLUS design competition funded by the Scottish Government. Work is now underway to engage with users of the route, interested organisations and communities on how to transform the quality of walking, cycling, accessibility for all and public space along the route.

In June and July, AECOM is inviting comments on the online Placecheck tool you can find linked on the project webpage. Tell them what you like, don’t like and want to see improved on these streets. You can also share your feedback via the freepost address provided on the webpage, and individuals can sign up for project updates. We will also be running an engagement day along the route in July and more details will follow in due course.
