The City of Edinburgh Council intend to make changes to Brunstane Road, and other roads in the Joppa area, by the means of a Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) for up to 18 months. This allows for changes to be trialled ahead of possible permanent changes. The Council’s proposed changes are in response to concerns raised by a number of residents about increased volumes of traffic and other local traffic issues, and also consider feedback which was received at a local resident’s engagement event which was held in October 2019.
Portobello Community Council would like to gather views from the larger community on both the Council proposals and a range of other possible interventions. We will collate responses and feed them into the City of Edinburgh Council’s Transport and Environment Committee meeting where this will be an agenda item (some date after May).
Note: this consultation focusses on the specific change proposed for Brunstane Road & Joppa Triangle. However we are aware of wider issues across Portobello, many of which were raised during our recent event with ward councillors on 4 March. We are still collating responses from that event.
