Traffic Order Main Street – Update


The Community Council has been seeking clarification of the proposals in TRO 13-46.  

The Statement of Reasons says

“Cala Homes are developing an area to the north of Ratho and building new homes which is expected to increase traffic through Ratho once these homes are occupied as the only access to the A71 main traffic route is via the centre of the village.  To assist traffic on Main Street, Ratho, it is proposed to introduce two sections of 24 hour waiting restrictions (double yellow lines).”

 The plan with the paperwork is not of high quality but proposes double yellow lines extending from the west edge of 48 Main Street, past the Bowling Club to the east edge of the driveway of 40 Main Street, and a further length from the entrance drive of the flats at 26 Main Street round the corner to 5 Baird Road.  The raised table is NOT part of this Traffic Order.

 Objectors must state their reasons in writing with reference TRO/13/46 to Traffic Orders, Services for Communities, City Chambers, High Street Edinburgh EH1 1YJ by 4th April 2014.  Please also give your name and address.  You can also object to an Order, by email at

 The Community Council would also appreciate a copy of your comments so that we can reflect the views of residents

TheTraffic Orders web page  currently provides copies of the documents, which are also available for inspection at the City Chambers Reception or at Ratho Library:
