Update from City of Edinburgh Council, Spaces for People team:
Covid-19 Cycling and Walking Emergency Response Measures
Proposed Traffic Management on Kings Place, Portobello
Please be advised that as part of overall emergency measures we are proposing to close Kings Place to traffic and suspend parking in order to re-designate key parts of the road network to help pedestrians and cyclists travel safely while meeting physical distancing requirements.
I have attached the proposed designs for the scheme. In summary it shows:
Traffic Management Plans, Phase 1 and 2
Given the urgency to make the required changes any comments relating to these proposals should be received by 1200hrs on Friday 10 July to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All feedback will be reviewed and where possible the scheme will be further refined. Feedback will be summarised in an assessment feedback form which will be presented to the Council Incident Management Team for approval. Please note that we will be unable to respond to individual emails.
If the proposal is approved for implementation, publicity will then be undertaken so that local people are aware of the changes. A dedicated inbox will help us to manage any feedback around proposals – email@example.com
The introduction of, or changes to, any restrictions will be implemented under emergency delegated decision-making powers using a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.
