As you may be aware, London Road has several stops for East Coast Buses number 113 to Pencaitland and number 124 to North Berwick, connecting the Leith Central area in Edinburgh to East Lothian.
East Lothian Council are consulting on the viability of these routes and seek feedback from anyone that is uses them, to see if they’re worth continuing.

Consultation opens 9th September and closes 20th October 2019
(LCCC’s minutes secretary apologises for the late publication of these approved minutes. He was unable to attend the April meeting, and so his normal cycle was interrupted. However, there is no difference in content (apart from correcting a few punctuation errors) between the record below and the draft March minutes published here: https://leithccc.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/2019_03_18-draft-v1.pdf.)

Following on from the previous post, there is a survey on Edinburgh Council’s consultation hub.
This covers the three components of the ‘Connecting our City, Transforming our Places‘ project ‘will help achieve the Edinburgh 2050 vision; a fairer, thriving, connected and inspired city’. These components are:
- Edinburgh City Centre Transformation – an action plan for a vibrant and people-focussed capital city centre to improve community, economic and cultural life, working to the following vision. ‘An exceptional city centre that is for all, a place for people to live, work, visit and play. A place that is for the future, enriched by the legacy of the past.’
- The City Mobility Plan – setting citywide transport policy and actions based around the following vision. ‘Edinburgh will have a cleaner, safer, inclusive and accessible transport system delivering healthier, thriving and fairer capital city, and a higher quality of life for Edinburgh residents’.
- Low Emission Zones – the Council is taking a comprehensive approach to developing LEZs as a step towards protecting Edinburgh’s citizens from the harms of poor air quality, in line with Scottish Government priorities to introduce LEZs in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow by 2020.
As with the previous post, this is an Edinburgh Council exercise.
This report to Edinburgh Council’s Transport and Environment committee includes tables showing enforcement requirements for various streets and schools. It would be interesting to find out whether this translates into reality in Leith Walk after 7 years of parking free-for-all.
