Transport

Our Facebook page can be a useful source of information for people planning their journeys. We try to publicise details of road closures, diversions or changes to local trains and buses there if we receive notification. Feel free to post or discuss general Queensferry transport issues on our Facebook page but note that urgent or very specific concerns should also be raised directly with the relevant service provider. We have developed some guidelines for posting on the page which help us demonstrate that we remain compliant with the scheme which QDCC operates within. The posting guidelines are similar to the code of conduct that should be observed during community council meetings.

Edinburgh Airport's consultation on new airspace routes closed on 30 April 2017. More information can be found at www.letsgofurther.com and for convenience you can download a copy of the consultation document here.

A summary of consultation responses can be downloaded here
Due to an incorrect Freepost address being provided in the consultation document, QDCC's response was not logged. However the points mentioned by QDCC all appear in the response summary, and are in alignment with the majority view on paths D0 and E6.

Edinburgh's Local Transport Strategy 2014-2019

The proposed Local Transport Strategy covering five years from 2014 until 2019 can be downloaded from the link in pink below. Comments can be made directly to City of Edinburgh Council before mid October 2013 and QDCC would also be interested in your opinions if they apply to Queensferry.

Local Transport Strategy for Comment

Earlier in 2013 the City of Edinburgh Council asked the public for opinions on a number of transport issues where the Council has some choices when drawing up its 5-year strategy for 2014-19. A copy of the full document can be found below.

Based on responses received from people in Queensferry, QDCC made comments on some of the content. In the document below the red text relates to CEC's statements highlighted in yellow. The Council is expected to release a draft 5-year strategy for consultation in September 2013.

Traffic Data for Builyeon Road

Two files can be downloaded below which contain data for a traffic volume and speed survey which was carried out on Builyeon Road in 2012. The speed limit at this time was 30 mph, imposed due to work being carried out relating to the Forth Replacement Crossing. However the City of Edinburgh Council will probably retain a 30 mph limit here once the project is complete.

Frequently Arising Subjects

The document linked below lists various issues which have been mentioned by residents and businesses at June 2012 and are under consideration by the Transport Sub Committee.

 QDCC_Transport_Topics.pdf

While some are relatively straightforward to resolve, others are conflicting which makes solutions especially difficult to find. Anyone who has comments or suggestions on these or any other transport matters in the Queensferry area is encouraged to contact us.
