  • Improve toucan crossing across Morrison Street at Ladyfield

    Created by Chris Paton // 0 threads

    What?
    Move the toucan crossing across Morrison Street a few metres to properly align with Ladyfield and provide improved signage.

    Why?
    There is already a crossing at this location but it's awkwardly positioned making it unclear that there is in fact a through route between the NCN at the Union Canal and Ladyfield, ultimately forming a traffic free link to the West End. Small improvements here would help provide a clearer through route that is both quiet and safe, avoiding the need for cyclists to go along Morrison Street or Lothian Road.

    How?
    A small realignment of the crossing with Ladyfield to follow the desire line would make the through route much clearer. Adding blue signage with destinations would also raise awareness of the route with both pedestrians and cyclists alike.

  • Shared path and toucan

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    The hill from the Braidburn Inn across Liberton Road up Kirk Brae is very difficult (steep and much traffic).

    Cyclists should be allowed to use the pavement from opposite the Braidburn Inn (at the end of the cycle lane), then cross Liberton Rd at the pedestrian lights (to be converted into toucan) and then continue on the pavement up Kirk Brae, at least to the Fire Station.

    Dropped kerbs are needed:
    - at the end of the cycle lane in Mayfield Road
    - at the end of Mayfield Rd, before the lights
    - at the bottom of Kirk Brae
    - at Double Hedges Row

    Many cyclists already use the pavement in this way, but lack of dropped kerbs makes it difficult (and of course it would be better if it's made legal).

  • Toucan crossing

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 1 thread

    Very difficult to cross here, coming from Brunstane Burn Walkway to turn right towards Musselburgh.

    The timing of the traffic lights seems to be such that there is almost always traffic from one direction, so one often has to wait for very long here.

  • St Andrew Square connection

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    It is really not clear how you get from the east end of George Street to York Place. The toucan leads you onto the pavement in the centre of St Andrews Square but then there is no sign or any hint how to get to NE corner of St Andrew Sq where the shared footpath starts again.

  • Toucan crossing

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    Important crossing point between Craigmillar Castle Park and Inch Park. Very dangerous because the bends in Old Dalkeith Road make cars from both directions difficult to see, and the width of the road encourages speeding well above 30mph (there is a speed display which is triggered by most cars).

  • Convert pelican to toucan

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    Convert the existing pelican crossing to toucan. Needs also a dropped kerb before the lights so that you can get there from the cycle lane.

    The reason is that it is very difficult to turn left into Walter Scott Avenue from Dalkeith Road. It is uphills with a lot of traffic, making it very unpleasant and quite dangerous to leave the cycle lane and move into the centre of the road for turning left.

  • Crossing should be a toucan

    Created by HankChief // 0 threads

    There is a great cut through to the quiet Barnton Grove from Drum Brae North, but the signals at the traffic lights aren't a toucan.

  • Cyclists not detected at toucan by Gogarburn RBS

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    When cyclists are on the cycle path approaching the toucan crossing, esp at night with low traffic, the lights should change to green for cycles quickly, or even default to cycles. Ideally cyclists shouldn't need to press the button to get the light to go green for them.
