    If that's what counts as a letter these days I guess twitter is in the mail business.

    The current roadworks and closure of Roseburn St mean that there are no traffic lights at the junction, so east-west traffic doesn't have to stop. Presumably some of the locals are enjoying the benefit of the FREEFLOWING TRAFFIC they have always desired.

    I've really enjoyed this closure. I now have a safe right turn into Russell Road. It was always a bit fraught before. Can it be made permanent?

    Yes please! Cycled from the ice rink with child (as we do every week during school term) and the rat-runner-free Roseburn Place and much emptier Russell Road were delightful.

    Back to a long queue at 6.00 today, although at least we've got rid of the U-turn brigade :)

    Another business opening up on Haymarket Terrace. The prospect of the bike lane hasn't scared them off.

    Perhaps they expect to rely on pedestrians/train users(?)

    Loading "difficulties" can't be concerning them.

    "Loading "difficulties" can't be concerning them."

    Maybe the business plan does not rely on joiners' vans "loading" bacon rolls during rush hour?

    @IBIKEDublin Even though #YYC has -35C winters and 1.76% commuting by bike we still have separated cycle lanes. Get it together Dublin!

    According to the Murrayfield Community Council minutes, updated plans for should be published "in August" to allow time for objections - any sign of them?

    Also, Cllr Douglas said that the the TRO process will take 18 months. So realistically we are talking late 2019 before this is complete and work might actually begin. Five years after the project was first raised.

    Sorry for not updating, my bad...

    Murrayfield Community Council (of which I am a member) saw the detailed (draft) plans last month in preparation for the TRO process starting.

    We were able to feed in comments but on the whole the designs as sent to us didn't change much as a result of this feedback.

    This is mainly due to the amount of thought having been put into the designs. We were given good reasons why the design shouldn't change although in some cases the answer was because "that's what's was agreed pre Christmas"

    The only concern from a cycling point of view is how the interaction between pedestrians & cyclists on the Northside of West Coates and vehicles exiting Donaldson 's School through the listed gates. The Council are away to give that more thought.

    We weren't allowed to share the plans are they are continuing to fine tune them.

    The official TRO process will start shortly although we won't hear much publically. The consultation on the TRO is likely to be this winter and the council will give due notice, running drop in sessions etc and a letter drop.

    That's when things will get interesting again...

    I've never quite understood why there's an extensive consultation process and then a TRO. I can understand for small things like yellow lines the TRO might be the first time the plans are published and objections might be reasonable, but surely after a consultation process it's a bit redundant? Do the plans change significantly at the TRO stage? Or is the consultation process simply a non-statutory bit of fluff at the start in a (vain) attempt to avert objections at the TRO phase?

    @nedd1e_h - I just got the Project 3 update by email (which is a new thing as I didn't get sent updates 1 and 2) so hopefully it should be on the website soon

    I got the CCWEL 3 email as well: they say "We are endeavouring to send regular project updates to all interested parties and stakeholders as this project continues to progress. Previously these updates have been sent to a small group of local stakeholders, however we have recently updated our systems, to allow us to send updates to everyone who responded to this consultation including their email address." so I expect quite a lot of people on here will have got it...
