The City of Edinburgh Council, with support from Sustrans Scotland, is introducing temporary measures to protect public health and support physical distancing. These measures will make it easier and safer for people to get around our streets for essential journeys and exercise.
Using their online tool citizens can submit suggestions on their interactive map, and others can show their support for any suggestions. Of course, additional feedback can still be submitted to your local Councillors – Booth, McVey & Munro or by emailing Council officers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are a number of suggestions & feedback relating to the Leith Links Community Council area on the Councils website, an example of three such streets are;

Police Scotland have appealed for witnesses following a woman being assaulted by a male on the Restalrig Railway Path earlier this week.

Following door to door enquiries of nearby properties, Police have been displaying notices in the local community asking for those with any information to get in touch with them.
If you have any information please contact Police Scotland by calling 101, quoting reference numbers PS-20200518-2291 and / or CR/030948/20.
If you have information but are reluctant to liaise directly with Police Officers you may provide information via Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
A spring clean of Restalrig Railway Path is being held on Saturday 2 March 2019 from 12:30 until 14:30. Those interested in taking part should meet at the opening of the walkway at the Restalrig Road bridge, with litter pickers & gloves being provided.
The group plan on focusing on the area between the meeting point and Leith Academy.
Local Facebook group ‘Restalrig Road + Railway Path’ often promote such clean ups, with a Facebook event created for this specific clean up.
A number of Leith Links Community Councillors have participated in previous clean up events on the railway path and are likely to be at this one too. This is a really easy way for people to help improve their community and we would encourage as many people as possible to take part.

There is a community clean up happening this Sunday 9 April 2017, from 11:00, meeting at the Restalrig Road bridge – this clean up will focus on Restalrig Road and the Restalrig Railway Path.
This was a project funded by our Community Links Fund.
Many hands make light work so it would be great to see as many locals as possible take part.
There is a Facebook event, which you can click here to view.
UPDATE: Around twenty members of our community took part, with about 25 bags of refuse collected, some graffiti tags removed from litter bins & street lighting columns, and a ton of larger refuse items. Well done to all those who took part.
