There is a very busy cycle route that crosses the road here.

Until recently the kerb here had a dip and made a very useful filter onto the cycleway to the left. It has recently been repaired. What a shame that an opportunity has been missed here to create a proper dropped kerb access to this cycle route. With a bit of imagination and campaign work this could surely be won?

Apparently not: after posting this I've heard back from Edinburgh spokes:

"Complaints to the council about the loss of the separate cycle entry were met by the response that for visual Streetscape reasons the lowered kerb which would allow a separate cycle entry would not be reinstated."
