176480Photo #176480Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they will be going diagonally across the tactile paving (see also #176481).Obstruction:

176479Photo #176479The South West City Way cycleway is blocked by contractors equipment. No diversion has been signed, and going onto the road requires cyclists to disregard the mandatory turn signage at the junction to continue straight ahead on the South West City Way.

Having used the correct tactile paving at Clyde Place, here at West Street corduroy hazard paving has been used instead of cycleway paving.

175465Photo #175465SaveLanarkRoad Protest

Location: , Slateford (Scotland, UK)

Edinburgh City Council is considering to remove some of the temporary infrastructure put in as part of the SpacesForPeople programme during the pandemic. In particular there seems to be a serious plan to remove the segregated cycle lane on Lanark Road which is a 4 lane urban motorway. Plenty of space for a segregated cycle lane, car parking and two lanes for motor traffic. Somehow the ambition of netzero by 2030 has to be reached. This won't happen without making it easier for people to choose active travel.
