Asked by: Sarah Boyack, Lothian, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 29 June 2022
To ask the Scottish Government what impact the value engineering exercise will have on the proposed Roseburn to Union Canal Path Link.
Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 26 July 2022
As the programme managers and project owners, the details of any such exercises lie with Sustrans and City of Edinburgh Council (CEC). We understand that a value engineering exercise was undertaken by CEC and Sustrans in view of escalating cost pressures and timescales for several Places for Everyone projects. Places for Everyone is an active travel infrastructure programme run and programme managed by Sustrans with grant funding from Transport Scotland.
