We're proposing a safer and more comfortable environment for residents walking, cycling, wheeling and spending time in the local streets and outdoor spaces of Corstorphine.
Our project objectives are to
- improve the safety of routes to schools in the area
- understand and address issues with speed and volume of traffic in residential streets
- improve walking and cycling routes and access in the area
- improve local air quality
- create a more attractive environment with new public realm spaces.
To meet these objectives, the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee has approved the development of trial changes in the area that will reduce the amount of traffic and prioritise anyone walking, wheeling or cycling.
As part of this, all residents' properties and businesses are still accessible by vehicle.
The scheme design highlights the overarching plan for the LTN area.
View the traffic operations plan of how the network of roads will operate from 24 May 2023, when the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) started.

The scheme takes account of the needs of anyone with a disability or impairment. An Integrated Impact Assessment (IIA) has been carried out and will be reviewed throughout the duration of the project.
We are delivering phase two of the project and will continue with monitoring and engagement throughout the trial scheme.
