Meadows to George Street

Our vision is to transform cycling, walking, public spaces and accessibility for all on some of Edinburgh’s busiest and most iconic streets.

The project will provide key walking and cycling improvements from Teviot Place along Forrest Road, George IV Bridge and Hanover Street to George Street. As an important part of the Edinburgh City Centre Transformation Strategy, it will be one of the first projects to deliver major street improvements.

Project details

Our plans include new segregated cycleways, wider pavements, and pedestrian priority areas. We propose to close some streets to some types of traffic. We also want to plant new trees and create new public seating areas. Take a look at our proposals and let us know what you think.


Our Reasons

The project has great benefits for residents, visitors and businesses. In 2018 we gathered data and peoples’ feedback about the project’s streets, and our concept designs reflect the improvements people wanted. Find out more about the benefits, and the feedback so far.

What do you think

Our summary consultation report on the Concept Design stage is now available on the Consultation page. We are currently developing our design assisted by your feedback and when this has progressed we will undertake further consultation in early 2020.

Who, how and When

This is a major project, with lots of people contributing over the next four years. Find out about the project team, funding and timeline of what’s happening.
