Easter Road considered for footpath widening

The City of Edinburgh Council have indicated that Easter Road along with streets across the capital have been shortlisted to recieve widend pavements to help facilitate social-distancing if councillors approve the ‘Creating Safe Spaces for Walking and Cycling‘ (PDF link) report.

The report also proposes citywide measures, most notably reducing waits between Green Men at traffic lights.

It does not detail the exact nature of the possible pavement extension.

The webcast will take place on Thursday 14th May and may be viewed on edinburgh.gov.uk.
