Bus Lane Operational Hours – Stakeholder Workshop Invitation

(adapted form an email from Edinburgh Council)

You may have heard of the City of Edinburgh Council’s public consultation on amending bus lane operational hours. Most bus lanes are currently closed to general traffic from Monday to Friday peak hours only (7.30am to 9.30am and 4pm to 6.30pm). To speed up bus journeys, we are considering changing the times they are closed to general traffic to 7am till 7pm seven days a week.

The consultation provides an opportunity for us to hear from and discuss the proposals with people and organisations potentially affected. Feedback from the consultation process will help to inform our decision.

In addition to an online consultation survey which will go live on the 31st October, we are inviting stakeholders to attend a workshop to hear about the proposals in further detail and to enable stakeholders to provide specific input on the proposals.

Please RSVP by emailing BusLane.HoursConsultation@edinburgh.gov.uk letting us know if you are able to attend by 18th November 2019. We ask that only up to two people from a single organisation attend and that you advise who you are representing when you RSVP.

If you are a representative organisation with members, we would be grateful if you could circulate this email to your members or colleagues that may be impacted by the proposals.

Cameron Toll to BioQuarter – Active Travel Route Consultation

for information of all bus-users in Edinburgh

LHNCC’s secretary attending this meeting, so presumably will report on it at the next LHNCC meeting (7pm, Tuesday 22 October, Leith Community Education Centre).

She emails

Very interesting with identified issues relating to buses, e.g. removal of bus stops/loss of services; two-way cycle paths on one side of carriageway only; little reference to needs/problems for pedestrians – mobility scooters/physical disabilities/crossing cycle path when alighting from buses. All very similar to issues that arose with Trams to Newhaven, particularly relating to drawings that do not identify all street names or current/proposed bus stops.

The route does look interesting though.
