  • Double the path width in Holm Park

    Created by Rhian // 1 thread

    It's great that this is such a well used path by people walking, cycling and running. There's loads of space to make this path at least twice as wide which would give people walking and people cycling their own paths and avoid conflict. When walking it's annoying when you have to single up to let a cyclist past.

  • Pinch points

    Created by FrenchyF // 1 thread

    The southbound cycle lane disappears at the pinch points caused by traffic islands. The cycle lanes should get wider through the pinch point. East Lothian Council has done this (on Linkfield Road in Musselburgh, for example), and Edinburgh really needs to follow suit.

  • Conversion of Footpath to Shared Use

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    Converting this path to shared-use (with appropriate signage) is a simple way to encourage cycling. There is plenty of space to widen it, and this would be especially beneficial at the lower end. Hint: people, including police officers, are already cycling on this path.

  • Alban Way widening Sutton Road

    Created by mike1727 // 1 thread

    There is a short section of the Alban Way where it is significantly narrowed as a result of encroachment from the morissons supermarket dite, leaving a width of no more than 1.5m. To the side the land falls away down to the caravan park road. It could be eaily widened with gabbions on the caravan park road side subject to land ownership and approval.

  • Narrow route through Verulamium park towards the museum needs widening to 3 metre width

    Created by mike1727 // 1 thread

    The route through Verulamium Park towards the museum was built to substandard width. There is a considerable risk that this will cause conflict between walkers and cyclists.

    Route widening is not due until the Green Ring is built in 2015.

    STACC will campaign for widening of the route to begin as as soon as possible since we see no need to delay waiting for the Green Ring.

    Resurfacing of the Alban Way begins in September 2013- this project draws upon Green Ring funding so why can't Green Ring funding be deployed now to widen the Ver Park route?

  • Whiteladies tree removal

    Created by aSemy // 0 threads

    A tree on the side of East side of Whiteladies road (next to HSBC) has a notice stating that the tree will be removed and replanted. The tree is on the very wide pavement right next to the road, and the road is not wide enough for vehicles and cyclists: a pinch point.

    There is clearly enough space on Whiteladies road for a segregated cycle lane. It is a popular route used often by heavy traffic. With enough shifting of road lanes there's even enough room for an uphill cycle lane.

    Replanting the tree away from the road would remove one small obstacle and show evidence that BCC is looking towards improving cycling in the long run.
