Keep Queen's Drive pedestrianised
Maintain the current closure of Queen's Drive from Duke's Walk to Holyrood Park Road. This portion of the road around Holyrood Park / Arthur's Seat has been closed since early March (first for frogs then for COVID) and it would be great to keep this closed.
Why the contribution is important
By having this road closed, it has enabled walkers, runners and cyclists to be able to move more freely and maintain safe social distancing while being outdoors. The air quality is also much improved (and protects our lungs from vehicle exhaust emissions) when you're going around the loop. Overall, the experience is much more serene and allows those of us who live near the centre to actually feel like we are away in nature (and get a break from the cacophonous traffic that is so often outside our windows).
