Here's where the City of Edinburgh Council is asking for your views about possible places where temporary measures could help you walk, cycle or wheel safely. You can comment until 29 June 2020.  It's a map-based commenting system, and you can make your own suggestion or just agree with someone else's.

Murrayfield Community Council took the following view regarding the possible introduction of measures on the A8 west of Roseburn:

"Murrayfield Community Council supports trialling anything that would avert commuters switching from public transport to cars on their return to work with the lifting of lockdown. However it is vital to protect public transport and pedestrians, and our support would be conditional on reassurance that any trial should be carefully evaluated against clear criteria as to what constitutes success. We would also expect consultation on the proposed layout, which need not be protracted but would help ensure that  residents, businesses, bus operators and the police and emergency services understand what is proposed."
