E-Newsletter | Travel and Mobility special edition

With City of Edinburgh Council working towards significant changes to how we move around Leith we are issuing this special edition of our quarterly e-newsletter promoting opportunities for citizens to have their say on the proposed schemes.

Leith Connections and Leith Low Traffic Neighbourhood

The City of Edinburgh Council are currently consulting on these two intended changes to how we move around Leith.

‘Leith Connections’ is about a new, safer cycle route through Leith which involves removing parking, moving bus stops and closing some roads to motor traffic.

‘Low Traffic Neighbourhood’ involves closing many roads to traffic / creating one-way routes and cul de sacs, with the intention of making the area safer and nicer to walk or wheel through.

We are holding a public meeting on Monday 1 March 2021 from 18:30 during which we will discuss the proposed schemes. The meeting is being held via Zoom and you are warmly invited to attend.

We are holding a public meeting on Monday 8 March 2021 from 18:30 during which we will discuss the proposed scheme. The meeting is being held via Zoom and you are warmly invited to attend.
