Local pedestrian crossing installations announced


A report before next week’s meeting of the Transport and Environment Committee set out a prioritisation plan for delivering 94 new crossings across Edinburgh where the Council has deemed them necessary to improve pedestrian safety.

Liberal Democrats have called for Edinburgh to get a fair share of the Scottish Government’s new Road Safety Improvement Fund after a new Council report confirmed communities could be left waiting up to a decade for new pedestrian crossings.
🛣 Pilrig Street traffic island (near Cambridge Avenue): end of 2022.
