Social distancing changes on Easter Road & London Road?

The City of Edinburgh Council are proposing pavement widening and other measures down all of Easter Road and part of London Road for social distancing purposes.

They’re asking people who live and work in the community to let them know your thoughts about how they can create more space. You can email them at spacesforpeople@edinburgh.gov.uk before 5pm on 26th June 2020. Please note they are unable to respond to individual emails.

The map highlights areas they’re looking at;

Great Junction Street and other areas near the Kirkgate are also up for consideration. Our neighbouring community councils, Leith Links and Leith Harbour/Newhaven have posted about them.
