Very narrow cycle lane - obviously trams will just have to hang back and follow cyclists, but it's still terrifying just to see this.

I wonder if @forthroadbridge have plans to trim the bushes, as pedestrians can't keep to their side of the line. https://t.co/84pIlB6kcQ

Many of the bridges on the Union Canal towpath have poor sightlines along the path.

The Union Canal has quite a narrow towpath, requiring users to co-operate to pass each other, which disrupts things like being sociable. Imagine if car users had to travel single file!

Poor sightlines at bridges on the Union Canal - a common problem right along the canal's length.

Poor sightlines at Royal Mail depot (I could hear a lorry about to depart from behind the hedge) and irregular parking across a dropped kerb (although there is a second dropped kerb further round).

Poor quality shared-use footway and signage on the one-way section of Cultins Road.

Ramp up from Dublin Street to Queen St/York Place toucan crossings on NCN75

A shared-use footway with no separation from the carriageway, and just minimal warning outside tramstop.

The sign says it's a cycle path, so why the right angled turn?

The tramway goes over a flyover but the cycleway goes through an obstacle course at road crossing, to improve riders' skills presumably! UPDATE: See #56279 - now work has finished they've replaced the yellow bollard with a thinner black ... [more]

The tramway cycle path looks worn out and in need of resurfacing!

Narrow shared footway under A8 dual carriageway bridge where A8 cyclepath crosses sides at airport junction

End of wide and smooth section of A8 cyclepath, reverting to narrow and rough after sideroad

Needlessly narrow cyclepath alongside A8, with very poor surface

Still steps Location: Colinton, Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom) It's more than 10 years since a report was written showing that it was possible (and desirable) to replace the left side with a ramp.

Getting onto the park cycleway is a bit of a struggle here - no dropped kerb, and vehicles parked in the cycleway. A cycle tour of Edinburgh at the CycleNation / CTC conference, November 2010.

Rough bump onto the pavement for this ramp up to the bridge.

Although there are no-cycling signs along here we were given mixed messages about whether or not they were actually in force. A cycle tour of Edinburgh at the CycleNation / CTC conference, November 2010.

Notice the big road puddle on the right ahead. Make sure you're clear of that before a motor-vehicle drives into it at speed giving you an unrequested cold-shower. That once happened to me a long time ago, spectacularly, on a bridge in Milt ... [more]

Very narrow, but rideable cycle route here.

A cycle filter lane ... but with a severe kerb.

Although this is marked as the official cycle route the parked cars and the cars looking to park make it annoying to use. A cycle tour of Edinburgh at the CycleNation / CTC conference, November 2010.

A nice little dropped kerb here would improve access onto the cycleway.

There is a very busy cycle route that crosses the road here. Until recently the kerb here had a dip and made a very useful filter onto the cycleway to the left. It has recently been repaired. What a shame that an opportunity has been mis ... [more]

Needs better alignment Location: Davidson's Main, Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Edinburgh Waverley station - notoriously un-cyclefriendly. If the barrier was just a little shorter cyclists could get past.
