9.1

Motion by Councillor Lang - Additional Capital Investment in Transport

 “Committee:

 

1.    Welcomes the majority decision of Council to allocate an additional £12.5 million of capital investment in each of the next three financial years for “pavements, lighting, roads Condition, SuDS and road safety projects”.

2.    Believes this funding across 2024/25, 2025/26, and 2026/27 provides a level of certainty for officers to ensure the Council better responds to the priorities of local communities.

3.    Recognises how this additional money responds specifically to the committee report from September 2023 which made clear how extra investment was required if Edinburgh was to avoid an overall decline in the condition of its road network.

4.    Further recognises how the added investment offers an important opportunity to accelerate elements of the current road safety action plan, including the option of additional dedicated staff to deliver projects.

5.    Notes that reports will be presented to committee in April which will help to detail how this additional £12.5 million will be spent but believes it important to set out its expectation that this new money should be allocated across the different areas in a way that ensures:

a) the overall Road Condition Index (RCI) for Edinburgh improves in 2024/25, and

           b) a faster delivery of the current list of agreed road safety projects.

6. Additionally requests that the Road and Infrastructure Capital Investment Programme 2024/25 report in April also provides an update on how the additional capital of £450,000 allocated in the budget for the Water of Leith works programme will be delivered.”

2)        Notes ongoing resident’s concerns within Craigleith Hill Avenue regarding flood risks and development of flood mitigation measures

3)        Understands that the modelling work for flood risk within the catchment study is still ongoing and several projects to mitigate flooding issues in Craigleith are being considered.

4)        Further understands that Western General Hospital (NHS Lothian), City of Edinburgh Council Flood Prevention Team, Scottish Water and the Edinburgh and Lothian Strategic Drainage Partnership working group (E&LSDP) are jointly working to identify potential solutions within the Craigleith Catchment study area

5)        Agrees that a collaborative community approach between stakeholders has the potential to reach the best outcome within this catchment.

6)        Further agrees to request an update report on progress of the shortlisted projects in Craigleith catchment in two cycles.”

Motion by Councillor Mowat - CCWEL Project (City Centre West to East Link)

“Council notes the large number of complaints received about the design, construction and implementation of the CCWEL project from Roseburn to Charlotte Square and considers that residents' concerns should be addressed and calls for a report to review:

 

1.    The process from commissioning to design and implementation and

2.  To consider lessons learned so that any further projects progress more smoothly and quickly.”
