You may have heard of the City of Edinburgh Council’s public consultation on amending bus lane operational hours. Most bus lanes are currently closed to general traffic from Monday to Friday peak hours only (7.30am to 9.30am and 4pm to 6.30pm). To speed up bus journeys, we are considering changing the times they are closed to general traffic to 7am till 7pm seven days a week.
The consultation provides an opportunity for us to hear from and discuss the proposals with people and organisations potentially affected. Feedback from the consultation process will help to inform our decision.
In addition to an online consultation survey which will go live on the 31st October, we are inviting stakeholders to attend a workshop to hear about the proposals in further detail and to enable stakeholders to provide specific input on the proposals.
Please RSVP by emailing BusLane.HoursConsultation@edinburgh.gov.uk letting us know if you are able to attend by 18th November 2019. We ask that only up to two people from a single organisation attend and that you advise who you are representing when you RSVP.
If you are a representative organisation with members, we would be grateful if you could circulate this email to your members or colleagues that may be impacted by the proposals.
