Future Streets

Transforming how we move around the city centre

As part of Our Future Streets, we plan to deliver a welcoming, safe, better-connected and sustainable city centre that will embrace and enhance its much-loved heritage. 

Our City Centre Transformation plan puts all of the people who enjoy Edinburgh’s city centre at its heart, while contributing to the city’s ambition to reduce car kms travelled by 30% by 2030. 

We are working to create space that is easy to move around and that feels safe, at all times of the day or night for everyone, including 

  • residents 
  • workers and businesses 
  • visitors 
  • shoppers 
  • restaurant, bar or club-goers
