Meadows to Innocent Path (NCN1)


The Council worked in partnership with Sustrans to deliver an upgrade of the National Cycle Network Route 1 (NCN1) between the Meadows and the Innocent Tunnel cycle path. The route forms part of the Council's 'QuietRoutes'; a network of cycle routes aiming to cater for younger, new or less confident cyclists.

On foot by bike

The route connects North Meadow Walk to the Innocent Path, which follows an old railway route to Duddingston, Brunstane and Musselburgh, using

  • shared footway and cycleway or cycle path on main roads
  • on road cycle route on side streets
  • crossings on Buccleuch Street, new, and Clerk Street, relocated.

The project was consulted on in November 2013 and more information regarding this and the outcomes of the consultation can be found on the consultation pages.

Construction has now been completed on this project and it is open for the public to use.
