East Lothian Access Study 2: Preliminary Options Appraisal

There's a lot going on in East Lothian. Significant forthcoming local developments include the creation of a new town at Blindwells, the regeneration of the former Cockenzie Power Station site and the creation of the Edinburgh Innovation Park adjacent to Queen Margaret University.

The Prelimary Options Appraisal for the Access Study narrowed down over 40 options from the 'Case for Change' report into around a dozen more concrete proposals which were consulted on in 2021. The report is currently in the final stages of production and will be available shortly. Stantec is the consultancy undertaking this work on behalf of East Lothian Council.
