Help shape plans for new West Edinburgh Link

As part of the West Edinburgh Link Project a series of engagement events will be held during September to gather views on public realm improvements planned in the west of Edinburgh.

Changes, including landscaping, are proposed at a number of locations as part of the broader West Edinburgh Link project, which aims to transform walking, cycling and public spaces around South Gyle and local communities.

Drop-ins will be held near each of the areas – Bughtlin Market, Gyle Park/Gogarloch, Wester Hailes Road and Clovenstone – where people can meet the project team and find out more about the proposals, as well as sharing opinions.

The following drop-ins will take place around Wester Hailes:

  • Wester Hailes Road at Sighthill Road (Nursery): Wednesday, 11 September 2019, 11am – 2pm
  • Murrayburn Road (at canal): Wednesday, 11 September 2019,
    3pm – 7pm
  • Clovenstone Community Centre, Thursday 12 September 2019,
    2pm – 7pm

There will also be online surveys for each area to give you the opportunity to leave feedback on recommended changes, which will be used as part of the design process.

The drop-ins come after a period of public consultation which ran from March to May this year showed their was support for the project with 84% in favour of concept designs. These envision 4km of segregated cycleways, a new bridge across the railway line next to Gyle Park, improvements to crossings and traffic calming throughout the area, amongst other measures. A full report detailing the responses received during the consultation can be found on the West Edinburgh Link website.
