CAMPAIGNERS have been quoted, calling for safer cycling in Edinburgh – not least by the creation of segregated lanes along the main arterial routes into and out of the city centre.
The calls have been reported by the Edinburgh Evening News newspaper, here.
For instance, to ride from Tollcross to Firhill is not supported by segregated cycle lanes; in addition, the road surface by the roadside edge is often in poor condition.
For the sake of a handful of car parking spaces, Comiston Road also lacks any form of segregation, including for buses.
In a post (here), published on the 25th of last month by Lothian cycle campaign, Spokes, there is dismay that what is described as ‘traditional consultation’ often results in delays lasting ‘many years’ in new cycling infrastructure.
