From The Spaces for People Team…
Thank you for your comments regarding the proposed emergency road measures for South Queensferry High Street, which was initially distributed for notification and comments on 23rd July. Many comments were received and these have been reviewed and a summary of comments is included in the attached assessment feedback form to the Council Incident Management Team (CIMT). On the basis of the comments received the scheme has been redesigned from the one which was notified, to take into consideration many of the concerns raised; further engagement with the local community has also been undertaken and has shaped the revised design which is attached. Following consideration by the CIMT on 11 September July 2020 the redesigned proposals have been approved for implementation. We sincerely apologise for the delay in providing the outcome of this proposal until now.
Officers will be monitoring all the temporary measures once they are implemented and will make any further adjustments as necessary to mitigate unforeseen impacts.
We expect that these measures will be implemented within the next 2-3 weeks, provided that the required resource to carry out the work can be secured.
Further information about how the Council is implementing temporary road measures to support safe walking, wheeling and cycling is available at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/spacesforpeople
