Haymarket Station Masterplan – News Update May 2008
Haymarket Masterplan – Response
CEC public consultation exercise revealed 93% of respondents support developing the station & surrounding area. The consultation was based on a feasibility study, paid for by Transport Scotland, which produced a shortlist of three suitable options. On the basis of the responses gathered during the study, it will be recommended that just one of the three suggested options for the site will be subject to further consultation. As one might expect, the radical ‘start again’ option was least favoured.
These proposals were: Option A: work with the existing character of the area and retain the listed buildings, creating a user friendly, purpose-built facility to enable and encourage the use of, and interchange between, all forms of public transport; B would see the site cleared enabling a purpose built multi-modal transport interchange to be built and C focuses on the interchange addressing transport objectives and improving the operational efficiency for users of all modes of transport.
Out of the responses, most were in favour of developing A or C. The Council will be asked at its 31 Jul meeting to approve plans for a further consultation into A. If approved, this will take place in Autumn 2007as part of the overall feasibility work. A final choice on the preferred option will be made in December.
Improved public space, a transport interchange and better pedestrian links are all options the public are being asked to consider for the Haymarket area to tie-in with the redevelopment of the train station.
Proposals: Aedas Architects with Halcrow
City of Edinburgh Council feasibility study: three conceptual ideas for public consultation:
Option A : listed buildings retention + new purpose-built interchange facility
Option B : whole site cleared + new purpose-built multi-modal transport interchange, larger development over entire site & rail tracks
Option C : more efficient interchange, lower cost & impact
