Cycling and walking projects

We are investing in improving conditions for cycling and walking around the city. This is in line with our strategy to encourage more people to travel by bike or on foot for everyday journeys.

The Active Travel Action plan has more information on the wider strategy.

The City Centre West to East Link is our highest priority active travel project. This will connect many cycle and walking routes in the city’s western and northern suburbs to and through the city centre.

We were recently awarded Community Links PLUS funding for two more major walking and cycling improvements. The West Edinburgh Active Travel Network (WEATN), and the Meadows to George Street link (MGS).
