Traffic delays at Bonnington Toll

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council time-stamped 12:21 on 30 May [today].)

I write to provide an update with regards the traffic delays this week due to the work taking place at Bonnington Toll (as detailed below).

Over the past 2 days, a number of private vehicles parked close to the work area have made it difficult for large vehicles to pass the traffic management and as such this has extended journey times for commuters quite significantly at times.

However, as of this morning it has been managed to move all vehicles which were causing an obstruction and as a result  journey times are significantly better this morning.

In addition, there have been some adjustments to the temporary traffic signal timings, to reflect the dynamic flows at the junction throughout the day. It is hoped that for the remainder of the work traffic queues and delays can remain as short as possible.

If you need to discuss this in any more detail or would like a further update, or have any concerns from residents, please do not hesitate to contact Steven Blacklaw. Please also CC secretary.lccc@leithcentralcc.co.uk
