What has happened to the King's Building to Marchmont cycle route?

In October 2014 I posted details of proposals for the above new route.  What has happened since then?

There was an initial consultation about the proposals at the end of 2014.  Of the 301 responses, 69% supported the proposed scheme with 20% opposed with the remaining 11% neutral or unclear.  Following the responses, there have been a number of design changes which, it is expected will be part of the forthcoming statutory consultation which is required before the scheme can be implemented.  Those design changes are currently subject to discussion within the Council at the moment.

I anticipate the statutory consultation will go ahead in the spring and, if the scheme is approved, the project is scheduled for delivery in the 2016/17 financial year.

I'll let you know when the statutory consultation goes live.

Update over.
