Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

Professionally driven - NOT!

How is anyone to safely use Leith Walk cycle lane when this is a daily sight @edinhelp @Edinburgh_CC @leithsworstpark

See clip at Not a bad example of a SMIDSY, just caused braking. But it was the lack of looking that made me think of putting it up. Council drivers of large vehicles should be more careful than this.
