Update from Spaces for People team at the City of Edinburgh Council:
“Dear Councillors and Stakeholders
Thank you for your comments regarding the proposed emergency road measures in Portobello. Comments have been reviewed and a summary of comments is included in the attached assessment feedback form to the Council Incident Management Team (CIMT). Following consideration by the CIMT, the measures have been approved for implementation.
We expect that these measures will be implemented from Friday 24th July with temporary traffic management equipment, such as cones. Where deemed suitable, this equipment will then be replaced with more robust, semi-permanent materials once available.
Officers will be monitoring all the temporary measures and will make adjustments as necessary to mitigate any impacts.
Further information about how the Council is implementing temporary road measures to support safe walking, wheeling, running and cycling is available at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/spacesforpeople
