There have been a number of requests over the years to improve the steps at Maidencraigs. They provide a vital active travel link for residents to access Craigleith Retail Park, amongst other places.
Hal Osler said, “over the years the steps have been repaired but this has only been as a temporary fix and they need to be replaced as they are quite steep and crumbling. What has been requested is a gentle ramp which would make it easier for many living in the nearby Queens Court, as well as cyclists and those pushing buggies.
"I have asked for this to be looked at again and will push for improvements to be made as it is very important to support those walking and cycling and make sure that they can move about safely. I would like to thank all the residents and the local community Council for keeping up the pressure.”
