Cycleway would add great value to the many cyclists who like to use this road . Cars drive very fast along this road. With a cycleway it would be an even better route for active travel through the city

Pavement is in disrepair and overgrown. It is very heavily used by walkers and cyclists but could be an even better outdoor space if the pavement was better kept and had space for all users

Pavement is very narrow. Not wide enough for families, wheelchair users or pushchairs. Pedestrians have to walk very close to cara

This on southbound A7. There to protect cycle lane to #ERI. Wands dumped inside entrance to park. @EdinPolSE @lmacinnessnp https://t.co/wpTD6YNrrV

Remove car parking on bridge and widen footway, people stop to enjoy view but this creates blockages making distancing difficult, can't step out on to road because cars fly down at great speeds

Zebra crossing needed here to facilitate movement between both parts of park and avoid bottlenecks of pedestrians on narrow pavements

Zebra crossing needed to pass between both parts of the park

Please lengthen the time for which cycle-friendly filter lights are illuminated. Mere seconds are given before green light for motorised vehicles.

Please make junction safer for cyclists - turning right from London Rd onto Queen's Dr puts a cyclist in a very vulnerable position.

Wide roads with too much consideration for cars and not enough for cyclists

Cycle lanes aren’t real lanes. https://t.co/QaqvxZPIyj

Broken kerbstone on edge of road l

The Advanced Stop Line at this location is in a completely inappropriate place. It needs to be relocated to the flat part of the road, and the pedestrian crossing realigned.

A filter here for emergency services and bus. So not used as rat run for vehicles improving air and noise quality

Closure to stop rat run of cars except Emergency vehicles and bus.

Refurbish existing cycleway. Resurface, widen, improve road markings and run it without interruption (reduce car lanes to accomodate cyclists, rather than vice versa)

Run cycleway across Orchard Rd junction to 'encourage' drivers not to creep into it as they head out onto Queensferry Rd, thus avoiding 'pushing' cyclists into main carriageway (where, it has to be said, considerate car drivers normally acc ... [more]

Cobblestones might have worked for horses in the C18th, but they are lethal for cyclists sharing with heavy traffic in the C21st. Smooth cycle lane required.

Busy road that is very hard to cross. Social distancing on footpath is tricky as paths are narrow and pedestrians are "hemmed in" by parked cars and also the busy road with traffic in both directions. Making it one way would certainly help.

Blind spot for children trying to cross to go to school or between parks. Can wait up to 5 minutes to get over when busy (generally when driver stops to let past) zebra crossing would help

The speed limit into this new housing development is currently 30mph. It needs to be cut, and enforced.

This section of road needs to be be narrowed and the pavements on either side to be widened. The free, roadside, particularly commuter motor vehicle storage needs to be stopped.

The gap in the wall here, and the road is just not fit for purpose. This section of road needs to be narrowed,for the pavement to be widened and for a cyclist/pedestrian crossing to be constructed.

There needs to be a dropped kerb here to allow easy access to and from the shared bike path l

Car parking here needs to be stopped to allow easy access to and from the shared bike path.

There needs to be a dropped kerb here to allow easy access to the shared bike path.

Cars are being parked here obstructing egress from the path. This needs to be stopped.

A dropped kerb is needed here.

Winton Grove at this point needs a dropped kerb.

This “give way” signage at the point where this road becomes a one way needs to be improved. Car drivers seem to think that they have the right of way across the path of anyone who might be turning into Bruntsfield Medical Practice.

There is a very rough, faint path from Old Burdiehouse through to Broomhills Road. The heavy vegetation along the path needs to be cut down to make this a viable path for cycling and walking.

This road needs to have its speed limit reduced and needs a cycle path along its entire length from the Gilmerton end to Burdiehouse.

Segregated cycleway from Crewe Road South to Inverleith park supporting active travel to multiple schools, the Western General Hospital and Lothian Police HQ

The new cycleway here is veery badly designed and forces cyclists into conflict with pedestrians unnecessarily. The cycle way should parallel the road not deviate in to the pedestrian crossing.

The new cycleway on the A900 is incredibly badly designed and will bring cyclists into direct conflict with pedestrians waiting at the pedestrian crossing. The cycleway should continue the whole way along the A900 and the pedestrian cross ... [more]

Segregated cycleway on the Pleasance and A7 all the way from the Cowgate to Cameron Toll.

Widen pavements on Drummond Street and South College Street making it into an attractive pedestrian and cycle route between the Pleasance and Bristo Square - two key University nodes.

Change one way Drummond Street to two way for cyclists and create a link between the Pleasance and Bristo square via South College Street and Drummond Street.

The Broughton Street roundabout and neighbouring streets prioritise motorised transport and encourages drivers driving too fast. Remove the roundabout including the garden in the centre and replace with narrower traffic lanes, segregated c ... [more]

This road needs a dedicated, segregated cycle lane. There’s plenty of room. The speed limit is far too high, 40mph on the double blind bends is truly excessive. The speed limit becomes 20mph at Corslet Cottage, but this is almost never ob ... [more]

The speed limit on this road needs to be cut. It’s currently 60mph, completely ridiculously fast.

Lots of people walking up to Pentlands. No footpath and traffic rising, very unsafe to walk on

North section of Viewforth too narrow for traffic since adjacent school opened, and traffic light sensors at hump-back canal bridge don't reliably work for bikes. Close northern section of Viewforth to motor vehicles between Fountain brid ... [more]

This road should be closed to cars, it's too narrow for safe cycling and walking already

A much wider cycle path for cyclists.

Too busy with cars/buses, cycle safety could be improved by adding a new cycle way along slateford road

The pavement is narrow and narrowed further by barriers. Now that it's a 20mph zone the barriers should be removed and the pedestrian crossing improved to allow safe crossing of the bottom of Woodhall road

The pavement is busy and too narrow, especially at school starting and finishing times. It could be improved by cutting back the hedges that encroach at various points. It would also be helpful to make the road one way only as far as the co ... [more]

Footway too narrow for social distancing.

Increased cycle traffic, lanes required due to speeding vehicles.

Pavements too narrow for social distancing. Widen pavements restrict parking.

Pavements less than 1.2m wide. Road too narrow for safe cycling and social distancing. Make one way.

Seperate cycle route to and from Princes Street

Protected cycle lane with widened pavement would be a great improvement, two (and sometimes three) lanes for cars/buses seems unnecessary and pavements are often thin. Road is badly pot-holed too.

Footpath widened, overgrowth cut back

Move comms cabinets from footpath/cycleway

Cycle lane in both directions

Pavement too narrow, reduce (commuter) parking

School access - closure/residents only at start and end of school day

Proper surface needed here - path is mostly broken up, potholed and grass covered

Proper road surface needed to give traffic free cycle access from west lothian to west edinburgh

Grass track across field, could give traffic free cycle access from west lothian to west edinburgh

The 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 ma ... [more]

Slow traffic down - cars tend to drive too fast and too close in both directions, but felt more so when heading out of town. Reduce speed/place a camera near the bend/have cycle lanes so that cars know to take care around cyclists.

Make this street one way as there is only one lane due to parked cars, making it dangerous for cyclists as cars force their way through.

Ban cars from parking in cycle lane to drop/pickup kids from nursery.

Widen and resurface the whole Braid Burn path to allow safe commuting all year round in the South of the city.

The road narrows near the roundabout and car drivers have a tendency to force their way through.

North end of Calton Road is a narrow, restricted junction prone to being blocked by traffic due to its narrowness. It also has perhaps the narrowest pavements in central Edinburgh. Close it to motor vehicles and allow 2-way cycle access wit ... [more]

Southbound contraflow cycle lane required in one-way section, to enable bikes to bypass mini-roundabout on parallel Polwarth Crescent (ie make one-way section two-way for bikes).

Cars do not respect road priorities, leading to frequent accidents. Add traffic lights or change priority to E-W rather than N-S

Very thin and difficult to not be close to people

Close this to vehicles all times.

Too many people park cars here behind the bend forcing cyclists to take difficult and sometimes dangerous choices

This area is only for pedestrians but cyclists could use it also and avoid potter row. Skateboarders are a real nuisance.

Just close this except for deliveries before 8am an to people with disabilities

This needs good safe lanes for bikes that aren’t affected by parking vehicles pulling out

This would be much nicer without the road

We need a safe segregated cycle lane down the length of the A701. Travelling south out of Edinburgh on a bike is very unsafe at the moment.

This road is extremely hazardous for cyclists, heavy traffic with many large trucks and buses. Segregated cycleway is essential here.

This crossing is very hazardous for cyclists, particularly crossing from Lady Road towards Esslemont Road. A safe cycle crossing would make this key junction much safer for cyclists.

Make Duncan Street 2 way for cycle traffic

Make the road barriers cycle friendly, so that when the barriers are closed to prevent vehicle access they can be easily navigated by cyclists to enjoy riding round the Queen's Drive
