The project has a strategic role in the future of Edinburgh’s city centre as well as lots of local benefits. We developed our designs based on feedback from people who use the streets as well as datasets and international best practice.

The CCWEL was approved in December 2016 following an extensive public consultation process. Since then the scheme proposals have been developed to a detailed design.

Statutory consultations for part of section 3 (section 3a – York Place and Queen Street between Elder Street and North St. David Street) have taken place. This part of the route only required an RSO as there were no changes to waiting and loading or permitted vehicle movements.
