Consultation: Midlothian Orbital Bus Study

Consultation: Midlothian Orbital Bus Study

Added on 17 April 2023

Midlothian Council in partnership with the regional transport partnership for South East Scotland, SEStran, have commissioned transport consultants AECOM to complete a study into the potential for introducing enhanced bus priority measures along four key bus corridors in Midlothian.

Initial public consultation on the four study corridors took place in Summer 2022, to understand transport-related problems and opportunities for bus priority. Feedback received has been carefully studied, and consultants AECOM have developed a series of options for potential development.

It is now time to present these options to stakeholders and the community, and this will be done through a Virtual Consultation Tool, and at a one-day drop-in event, details below.

Virtual Consultation Tool and online survey available until 15th May 2023

Virtual Consultation Tool is now live (from today), or you can paste this link into your browser:

The Virtual Consultation Tool provides information on the Orbital Bus Study corridors, including potential options, and allows the opportunity to give feedback on the proposals.

Feedback can be submitted via the Online Survey which can be accessed directly, from the online consultation tool, or if you need to paste it into your browser, please use this link:

The Consultation tool and online survey are both available online until 11.59pm, Monday 15th May.

Public Drop-In event between 3pm and 7pm, Thursday 4th May, 2023 Outer Space Room, One Dalkeith Centre, Eskdaill Court, EH22 1AG

A public drop-in session has been arranged for any and all members of the public and stakeholders. People are invited to attend this between 3pm and 7pm.
