Transport In Edinburgh
Edinburgh constitutes a major transport hub in east central Scotland and as such is at the centre of a multi-modal transport network comprising road, rail and air communications connecting the city with the rest of Scotland, the United Kingdom and internationally.
Transport is an area under the control of the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government who have the statutory ability to control, fund and regulate transport projects of national importance within the city. Transport Edinburgh is the City of Edinburgh Council's executive body responsible for the development of all transport projects within the city and brings a number of key transport providers together under the one umbrella.
Public transport in Edinburgh is generally extensive and efficient, but problems such as traffic congestion and the delivery of key transport projects in the city are a prevailing concern.
Famous quotes containing the word transport:
“One may disavow and disclaim vices that surprise us, and whereto our passions transport us; but those which by long habits are rooted in a strong and ... powerful will are not subject to contradiction. Repentance is but a denying of our will, and an opposition of our fantasies.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
