QuiteRoute 61: Moredunvale Road to Little France Drive (Have your say – online consultation)


The City of Edinburgh Council is planning to deliver a scheme to make it easier, safer and quicker for people crossing Old Dalkeith Road by creating a new Toucan crossing on the desire line.  The project will also improve and upgrade the existing footpath linking into the Hospital and Bio Quarter.  The zebra crossing within the Hospital access roads will be upgraded to allow cyclists and a new Toucan crossing of Little France Drive will link to the Bio Quarter.  These changes all form part of QuietRoute 61 – please find attached Summary Sheet with background to the scheme.
