Good news! Council officers confirmed at a meeting today that they have secured funding for the Braidburn Terrace one-way west to east scheme.
This will include the installation of a Toucan pedestrian/cycle crossing near the entrance to the Hermitage on Braid Road, changes to the traffic lights at the church to incorporate a right turn filter into Greenbank Crescent and formalising Braid Crescent’s effective one-way system east to west with proper ‘No Entry’ signs at the junction with Comiston Road.
Although the designs for Braidburn Terrace have still to be finalised, we were assured that the traffic regulation order (TRO) for the one-way system can be implemented very soon with the work hopefully going out to tender in January.
Two versions of the final designs may be required so that one can fit in with whatever is decided for Braid Road at the Council’s Transport Committee meeting on 11 November.
The redesignation order (RSO), covering the changes from roads to pavements/cycle lanes will have to be re-advertised because of recent amendments.
We were also told to expect the B2 priority parking area extension with likely implementation early next year.
