West Edinburgh Link

Our vision is to transform cycling, walking, public spaces and accessibility for all within and around one of Scotland’s key business parks, in the west of Edinburgh.

The project will connect up South Gyle, Edinburgh Park and local neighbourhoods with high quality walking and cycling routes and new public spaces.

Project details

We aim to deliver new walking, cycling and public spaces throughout the project area: East Craigs, South Gyle, Bankhead, Sighthill and Wester Hailes. Our proposals include new segregated cycleways, crossings and public spaces. Give your feedback on our proposed improvements to public spaces.

Our Reasons

The project has lots of great benefits for the local area and Edinburgh as a whole. You’ll see the benefit too – you can save money on car trips and improve your health. Find out more about the benefits, and the feedback we’ve had so far.

What do you think

We are currently consulting on proposed improvements to public spaces along the route. This consultation survey runs until 30 September 2019. The consultation on the route’s concept designs was completed in Spring 2019. You can view the results on the consultation page.

Who, how and When

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