East Lothian Local Transport Strategy

Setting out a 20-year transport strategy

Concise, accessible, and evidence-based local transport strategies

Major changes are planned for East Lothian, east of Edinburgh. Reflecting this, East Lothian Council appointed us to develop a new local transport strategy (LTS).

After an initial review of background documents, we understood what remained relevant from the previous LTS and what had been achieved in that period. This provided an understanding of the context and many of the issues that still needed to be addressed. We also undertook an analysis to understand the key transport conditions and trends affecting East Lothian. From this, we developed a list of the problems, issues, constraints, and opportunities to guide the new LTS.

The strategy was centred around five policies to provide the framework for actions and measures. These were aligned to the objectives and designed to address the identified problems and issues. We outlined a series of action plans to deliver the policies and the vision and objectives of the LTS. The outcome? An achievable LTS targeted upon delivering actions that the Council had within its powers and identifying measures where partnership would be required.
