Edinburgh residents invited to feedback on Meadows to George Street active travel project

Following the launch of the Meadows to George Street project at Edinburgh’s Summer Summit on the 21st June, City of Edinburgh Council and AECOM in partnership with Sustrans Scotland are currently gathering views to help improve walking, cycling, public spaces and accessibility for all along the route.

Funded by the Scottish Government through our Community Links PLUS design competition, the project aims to transform this busy transport route in the heart of Edinburgh.

Residents are being invited to visit the project webpage to sign up for updates and take part in the online Placecheck tool. The tool allows the public to feedback on what they would like to see improved on specific sections of the planned Community Links PLUS funded route.

Placecheck will be open for feedback until the 31st July 2018.

There will also be the opportunity to chat with the project team in person on Saturday 21st July. Tell us what you like, don’t like and what you would like to see improved between 10am – 3pm, near the Greyfriars Bobby statue on the corner of Forrest Road and George IV Bridge.

If you would like to participate but can’t make it along on Saturday, there is also a freepost address:
