Barriers to Cycling – the Saga Continues

Posted by chdot on September 27, 2009


Sunday morning 9 a.m. (apparently) workpersons arrive in Portobello to make some modifications.

Half an hour later one barrier is removed and warning panels added to the remaining furniture.

Next on the scene is a local resident who just happens to know the Council’s guidelines on such things. A polite conversation ensues about what to do with the 70mm excess barrier length. It’s removed.

Next along is a women on a mobility scooter, clearly pleased that her twice weekly trip is now much easier.

What’s next? Maybe a change to the road layout in George IV Bridge that’s been promised for a few months.

Any pictures of such things? Please add to the barriers to cycling in Edinburgh Flickr group.
