Transport

Introduction

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.

For up to date information on current issues QDCC is involved in please see the monthly reports here.

Getting here

It’s easy to visit Queensferry. We have great transport links to Fife, Edinburgh and the central belt of Scotland.

By roadQueensferry sits next to the A90, a major road which connects to the motorway network and puts you in easy reach of major Scottish cities. Use services like Google maps to plan your journey. If your car has Sat Nav, use the postcode EH30 9PP to reach the High Street in the centre of town.

By foot/bike: Queensferry is on the National Cycle Route (route 1) which passes through the town on it’s way from Edinburgh to Fife. Queensferry is also on the John Muir Way - the long-distance trail passing through central Scotland. Look out for the blue direction signs and the purple John Muir signs to help guide you.

By bus: There are regular bus connections to Edinburgh and the wider local area. Plan your journey using the Traveline Scotland website - or download the Traveline app.

By trainOur local railway station is called Dalmeny, at the edge of Queensferry. Frequent trains connect the station with the national rail network and fare and timetable information is available at www.nationalrail.co.uk


FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND

It’s easy to find your way around our compact town centre. You can also download a PDF version of our visitors’ map to view on your preferred device during your trip. It’s packed with useful information to help you enjoy your time in Queensferry. You can also pick up a paper copy from venues around the town.

PARKING IN THE TOWN

There is plenty of parking around the town - but it can get busy at peak times, so consider using public transport. Parking is generally free - although there are charges for on-street parking in the town centre. Look for signs.

The town welcomes buses and visitors for cruise liners. To accommodate them, areas of parking around the Hawes Pier at the seafront are closed off on specific days. Please look out for signs. You can also find out listings for future liner visits (resulting in parking restrictions) on the Cruise Forth website.


 

Airspace  Consultation

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.

Forth Crossing

The Forth Replacement Crossing (FRC) is a major infrastructure construction project for Scotland, intended to safeguard a vital connection in the road network. A new crossing was deemed necessary to replace the Forth Road Bridge following discovery of cable corrision which suggested limited capability in the near future. After completion of the FRC, the Forth Road Bridge will only remain open for journeys made on foot, by bicycle or on registered buses and taxis.

Copies of letters which inform nearby residents of disruption can be found on this link.

If you are interested in the changes to traffic volume and HGV numbers on Builyeon Road resulting from the new slip roads on junction 1A of the M9, data from the counter just east of Newton can be downloaded fom the link here.The slip roads opened in February 2013.
This map shows the locations of southern traffic counters which are being monitored by Transport Scotland during construction of the bridge.
You can see the speed of traffic on Builyeon Road during May and June 2012 by downloading these eastbound and westbound files. Traffic speed was recorded by equipment provided by City of Edinburgh Council which also displayed a warning to drivers of vehicles travelling over 30 mph. In terms of vehicle count, the results are inconsistent with the Newton monitor but the speed equipment is probably less accurate for this purpose.
