The council has confirmed that plans for a LTN (Low Traffic Neighbourhood) in North Gyle and Craigmount have been shelved for the time being.
Thanks to the thousands of residents who sent in their views on both the official council consultation and the excellent consultation organised by Get Edinburgh Moving.
The statement says that the plans are on hold ‘for the moment.’ So Cllr Aldridge and the Lib Dem team will continue to work with local residents to keep an eye out for any developments.
The surveys had a massive response – more than for any other recent council survey. Whilst the overwhelming view was that a LTN was not wanted or needed residents raised a number of concerns about traffic on specific streets in the area.
Cllr Robert Aldridge said: I’m delighted that the huge effort put in by local residents over the past months has paid off. It is important that the area remains quiet and safe for pedestrians and cyclists and that we take time to discuss the concerns raised about individual streets.
"It is very rare for community action to lead to a complete change. So thanks to everyone who worked so hard over such a long period time to make this success happen.’
