    The impact on the Council's budget is expected to be approximately £3.75 million, and this will be met from funding approved for the delivery of the Council's Active Travel Investment programme.

    Talking of CEC and AT, I’ve only just realised that Daisy has left.

    Her name was on many reports - especially the *big scheme* ones.

    She also fronted things to TEC and Community Councils etc.

    Her (former) boss is about to be CEC Big Boss.

    The future is … ?

    The future is "kick everything into the long grass", innit?

    This is why we don't have time to wait for the council to build mega-schemes. We need to crack on with simple traffic reduction "stick*" schemes like bus-gates, modal filters and street parking reduction.

    *Don't worry about the "carrots", they'll fall into place alright once the traffic reduction starts...

    The completion date for the Roseburn to Dundee St link appears to be early October 2024*, according to the latest council report:

    (page 14).

    Let's see, eh? *Note I put the year in, for the record...
