150122Photo #150122The shared pavement and cycle way here is a joke. It gets really narrow by the bus stop where people are waiting and getting on and off buses. It's both dangourous for pedestrians and cyclists trying to filter through safely. It get's even worse on bin day when you also have to dodge them. This is a major route from West Lothian in to Edinburgh and needs big improvements.Cycleway:

133388Photo #133388The A8 cycle path from Newbridge to Gyle needs major improvements. It puts a major commuter route from the west into Gyle & Gogarburn. Junctions are dangerous, the newly painted junctions make no difference. The car is still king and the many rat runs and side entrances make cycling over these junctions dangerous, not to mention slow. The bridge at Ratho requires cyclists to dismount and walk up and down steps. The only alternative is the dangerous and fast Edinburgh airport underpass.Cycleway:
