Bus lane enforcement camera: Commercial St

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

As you may know, the Council is introducing three new bus lane enforcement cameras around Edinburgh. One of these locations is on Commercial Street which is within the boundary of your Community Council area.

The camera has now gone live and we will be issuing warning notices for two weeks to motorists who incorrectly drive within the bus lane during operational hours. An extra week will allow additional time for notices to be delivered, before charge notices start being issued from 17 June 2019.

There are no changes to the layout or operational times of the bus lanes as a result of this project. However, additional yellow warning notices are in place on approach to the camera to inform motorists. A press release has also been issued with further social media promotion planned.

Proposed Carriageway Resurfacing Works – Summer 2019/20

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

The carriageway on a number of streets in your Ward are due to be resurfaced during the Summer of 2019. The roads affected have been prioritised because of their current condition and because the upcoming tram works will prevent any planned resurfacing work from taking place in and around the proposed tram line during the construction period.

The resurfacing works are planned to start on 27 May and will be carried out during weekdays in separate phases in order to minimise disruption to the public. On some traffic sensitive routes, work may be carried out under nightshift to minimise the impact on traffic. Most roads affected will be fully or significantly resurfaced with a select few being only partially resurfaced or patched as required. There will also be some improvements to pedestrian facilities, traffic signal upgrades and renewal of some street furniture.
