Have your say on road closures

George Square could be a car-free zone

OPERATORS in Edinburgh and Glasgow are being urged to share their views on the pedestrianisation of areas in both cities.

The City of Edinburgh Council is set to launch a public consultation next month which, among the ideas being considered, will seek views on pedestrianised streets, restrictions on ‘through’ traffic, as well as regular ‘vehicle-free’ days in both the city centre and town centres across Edinburgh.

Glasgow City Council, meanwhile, has launched a consultation seeking opinions on the permanent pedestrianisation of George Square.
