Too many parked cars block safe route for cycling and prevent buses getting through. A marked cycleway or double yellow lines on one side would improve visibility and safety.

Please can Scotrail change their anti Tandem policies and allow them on the Inter7City trains which LNER did with exactly the same trains. Discriminates against disabled riders who have to ride with a partner.

The 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 ... [more]

Safe cycling route needed north-south to allow travel to/across town centre and join up existing cycleways.

Long hill, so cars overtake. Pavement too narrow for cycling

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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

Increased cycle traffic, lanes required due to speeding vehicles.

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.

Cycle lane in both directions

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

Merchiston Ave turns into a rat run during commuting times, speed limit largely not complied with. Speed bumps or chicanes to slow down traffic.

Lights change too quickly from S St David St onto Princes Street, cycle green light to let cyclist out in advance of buses.

There should be cycle lanes here. Does the motorised traffic even need to be bidirectional?

Any patient, doctor, nurse or other essential member of staff or students who have tried to cycle from town to this hospital will know it is hell. We need a bike prioritising cycleway for people to get from the city centre to the hospital. ... [more]

Dean Bridge is a narrow part of a main road. The speed limit of 20mph is widely ignored, making it dangerous for cyclists. Suggestion - strict enforcement of the speed limit would be a big safety improvement.

Cycle way on widened pavement to allow cyclists to get from Cammo Walk to cycle routes at Glasgow Road.

There needs to be a separated cycleway the entire length of the A701

There should be a separated cycleway the entire length of this street

There should be a separated cycleway on this road, there is absolutely no reason for this to be a dual carrageway

This road should have a contraflow cycle lane

There should be a separated cycleway the entire length of the A7

There should be a separated cycleway the entire length of this roads

Steep steps - ramp would be great here for bikes and disabled user.

Cycleway ends - forcing you onto the road. Either put in a segregated cycle path or close the roads to cars.

Cycle way on widened pavement to allow cyclists to get from Cammo Walk to cycle routes at Glasgow Road.

Marked Cycle way to give pedestrians warning that bikes are still allowed

All off-road shared use paths need to be regually cleaned. Glass and wet leaf matter is dangerous to users and over time the path narrows as waste builds up.

Contra-flow lane would be very helpful

Cars parked in cycle lane - Cycle lane should be widened and segregated on the uphill.

Make a safer route for cyclists cycling from the canal to the meadows, a cycleway would be great

Really dangerous and confusing junction for cyclists. Contra-flow cycle lane which on-coming cars often drive into to give space to parked cars on the other side of the road.

Provide a route for cyclists between Mayfield Road and Blackford Glen Rd, cars moving off from the lights do not allow time or space for cyclists to turn right into Blackford Glen Road.

This cycle pathway is dangerous and a separated cycle way would be much safer

Separated cycle path would be much safer as parked cars, potholes, fast cars and buses make it difficult to cycle safely

Need a safe cycling route between braidburn valley park and Hermitage for small children, not just an adult-safe cycle route.

When barrier is closed cycles access the road via the narrow footpath causing conflict with pedestrians and also erosion of vegetation by riding over grass to gain access back onto the road from the footpath. A cycle bypass of the vehicle b ... [more]

Consider a contra flow cycle path here as it is constantly used in the wrong direction by cycles coming off the cycle path that runs across the meadows, at least a contra flow cycle lane for cycles only would make this a little safer and ea ... [more]

Lining and signing to 'segregate' cyclists and vehicles or widen existing footway to shared use width.

There's a very narrow path between the motorway and The Range, the shop has a fairly generous patch of ground with hedging that could be better utilised as extra space to cycle for physical distancing

Lanark Road desperately needs proper and segregated cycle lanes and the speed limit needs to be reduced. It's currently allegedly 40mph. It's obvious that this is frequently exceeded.

Improve the surface of this path. Clear all of the overgrown vegetation. Clear up the rubbish that is frequently strewn along it's length. Widen the path, there's plenty of space on the other side. It's a vital link to avoid almost certain ... [more]
