Pedestrian-friendly overhaul would make the New Town street ‘Las Ramblas’ of the north, say designers
Plans to overhaul George Street in Edinburgh – which would see the city’s thoroughfare become more pedestrian-friendly – have been unveiled.
The proposed scheme, jointly designed by LDA Design and WYG for Edinburgh council and sustainable transport charity Sustrans, will widen the street’s pavements for pedestrians and create new two-directional cycle lanes.
LDA said the plans for a more sociable George Street had been dubbed “Las Ramblas of the north”, after the pedestrianised thoroughfare in Barcelona.
