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

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

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

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.

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]

Close this to vehicles all times.

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

This would be much nicer without the road

Make road closure permanent with barriers allowing cycle and pedestrian access

Blind summit over bridge mixed with traffic lights leads to drivers often speeding excessively over bridge to "get through on green" this combined with very low kerbs and recently built school with entrance within 100m leads to very dangero ... [more]

This junction creates an unnecessary through road. Would also force drivers to respect one way condition on Giles street.

Rat running traffic should be filtered to allow local access but block commuting vehicles.

Close this road entirely except for local residents, bikes, pedestrians, agricultural and emergency motor vehicles.

This road has been shut since before lockdown and the junction on Dalkeith Road is much better and it is far safer for those walking and cycling. This road is great for cycling along at the moment and a permanent closure would help everyone ... [more]

The park should be closed to cars. The pavements and paths aren't big enough to accommodate the number of pedestrians and cyclists who are making use the park.

Rat running. Create filtered permeability here, stick in a great big planter

Make this one way. There is a parallel busy road, it does not need to bi directional for cars

A temporary closure and diversion on the George Street cycleway (see #60911).

Path closed

The tramway cycle path shares a flyover with the actual tramway. If only this happened at the road crossings further west! It would have been even better if they'd not mounted the lighting columns within the width of the path.

Tramway cycle path closed off, even though it looks like work has been completed

Dismount here?

Closed tramway cycle path beyond Edinburgh Park station and tramstop

Cycle path alongside tramway closed. It also looks like an unnecessarily steep ramp away from the path junction

Part-time pedestrian zone, closed more thoroughly for the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe.
