LOANHEAD TO GILMERTON CYCLE SCHEME – PHASE TWO

I have recieved the following information regarding Phase Two of the Loanhead to Gilmerton Cycle Scheme:

“LOANHEAD TO GILMERTON CYCLE SCHEME – PHASE TWO

The City of Edinburgh Council, in partnership with Sustrans, is developing a scheme to enhance cycling and walking provision between Edinburgh and Midlothian. This scheme supports walking and cycling policies detailed in the Council’s current Local Transport Strategy and Active Travel Action Plan.
Earlier this year, a new 900 metre cycleway along the former railway line between Lasswade Road and Midlothian was completed, and this opened to the public in August 2014. This forms part of the Council’s Family Network Cycle Route 61.
In order to improve and extend this route further, the following works are now proposed:
• resurfacing and widening of the footway on the east side of Lasswade Road between Gilmerton Station Road and Gilmerton Dykes Road to create a three metre wide shared use cycleway;
• lighting of the route between Lang Loan and Midlothian, including Lasswade Road and the cycle path along the former railway line between Lasswade Road and Loanhead;
• working with Midlothian Council to sign the full route between Roslin and Holyrood Park, where the route connects with the National Cycle Network Route 1; and
• a reduction of the speed limit to 40mph on Lasswade Road south of the Lang Loan roundabout.
The proposed improvements are shown on the accompanying plan.”
