What Do YOU Think of Edinburgh’s Roads and Paths?
Posted by chdot on September 17, 2009
Edinburgh recently signed the Brussels Treaty which has a target for cycle journeys of 15% by 2020.
A LOT needs to be done to have any hope of this being achieved.
Today it was announced (Evening News story) that £150,000 is to be invested to create a “corridor” of bus and cycle lanes between Edinburgh University’s campuses at George Square and King’s Buildings.
By contrast two sets of barriers recently appeared at the ends of the Hope Lane cycle/pedestrian bridge and a very curious impediment to easy cycle flow appeared in George IV Bridge by the new hotel.
Inevitably reaction to both was swift and strong and the Council was forced to concede that it would have to ‘think again’. (Still waiting for action).
Now the Council is seeking public views on how well it looks after roads (and paths) and lighting.
