The Lib Dem team are continuing to work hard on the Corstorphine LTN.
Local Lib Dem councillor Alan Beal said, “We instigated a meeting between the Transport Convenor, Council Leader, along with ACE and Low Traffic Corstorphine, which was quite productive. We have also met with the various groups.”
He added, “We have listened to local residents through our survey, directly on the doorsteps and by email, and the overwhelming majority are against the bus gate on Manse Road.
"As such, it is our view that the bus gate should either be removed or have its hours drastically reduced to around school times.
"On a final point, we are pleased that the signage has been replaced to make it clearer and safer.”
Alan recently asked a question at the Council's Transport Committee that ascertained that the determination of whether the scheme will become permanent or not will be decided by the Regulatory Committee and not the Transport and Environment Committee, as would previously have been the case.
This adds a level of complication, and as it is the first time that this has happened, as such we are taking advice to identify what further interventions we can take and when.
