Request a Traffic & Road Safety Consultation

257 of 300 signatures

The SNP/Labour led Council, supported by Green councillors, is intent on rushing ahead by mis-using emergency powers designed to respond to the pandemic to impose the Greenbank to Meadows cycle scheme and multiple road closures with minimal consultation.  

Lib Dems want a full public consultation with local residents to find long-term solutions that work for everyone.  We want to see improvements to road safety, make walking and cycling more attractive and reduce unnecessary vehicle journeys.

Signing our petition will show your support for

  1. pausing the implementation of the Greenbank to Meadows Quiet Route proposals in order to
  2. hold a full public consultation by the Council on all potential measures to improve road safety, make walking and cycling more attractive and reduce unnecessary car use and CO2 emissions in the East Morningside area and
  3. carry out appropriate traffic studies.

Hold a full public consultation to give residents the chance to express their views and for those views to be taken into account on all potential measures to improve road safety, make walking and cycling more attractive and reduce unnecessary car journeys and CO2 emissions in the East Morningside area centred on the proposed Greenbank to Meadows cycle route and bounded by the A702, Kilgraston Road/Blackford Avenue, Bruntsfield Links and the Hermitage; and
