HAVE YOUR SAY: Musselburgh’s Future Sustainable and Accessible Transport Network

East Lothian Council are developing a Masterplan for people walking, cycling and travelling sustainably in and around Musselburgh which extends into Midlothian and Edinburgh.

Please use the following simple online map tool to give us your views – it is important that we understand the needs of the local people who will be using the network in future.  We are keen to hear your views on what works, what needs improved and any opportunities you are aware of.  The survey will close on 16th March.


We know that Musselburgh will be growing in the future and this study provides the opportunity to consider how this can be done more sustainably, without relying on private cars for journeys.  The Masterplan will aim to create an accessible network around Musselburgh to suit the needs of everyone moving in and through the area and connecting into Midlothian and Edinburgh.  It will also look at key spaces, such as the town centre, to consider how these places can be improved sustainably for local people and businesses, visitors, and for those who work and study in the area.

Next Steps:

We are planning to meet with key stakeholders to discuss the Masterplan mid-March.  A public exhibition and online consultation regarding the Masterplan and details of the emerging routes will take place mid-April.
