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

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

Broken kerbstone on edge of road l

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Footpath widened, overgrowth cut back

Move comms cabinets from footpath/cycleway

Pavement too narrow, reduce (commuter) parking

Narrow pavement, with iron fencing along the outside edge. Remove the fencing and widen the path

Narrow road and pavement with no good options for bikes. Pavement too narrow to allow people to pass without going into the busy road

Pavement widening could be achived by getting rid of a single yellow parking

Safe crossing/traffic calming urgently needed here as walkers and cyclists must risk crossing 4 lanes of traffic to access safe streets and closed road for exercise. There is grave danger of collision and injury from speeding traffic.

Bike racks And people queuing for Tesco block pavement here

The pavement is far too narrow to accommodate all the school children waiting at the crossing. The crossing light sequence should be changed to prioritise pedestrians, even if just at school drop off and pick up. Also the pavement should be ... [more]

Improve this informal path. It's a good shortcut between Baberton Mains Way and Baberton Road. It gets very boggy in wet weather.

The pavements are far too narrow along the entire length if George IV bridge and pavementa are often blocked by bollards, bins, etc. There is plenty of road width to widen the pavement.

Pavement too narrow

Pavement too narrow

This junction is awful for cyclists and pedestrians. Pavements too narrow. Green man crossing only available for some of the roads. Popular access route to Blackford Glen Road. Diffcult to access safely from Mayfield Road to North - with c ... [more]

Wider pavements on west and/or create a pavement/space for walking on east to allow safe, distanced access to Braid Hill

The path alongside the pond is too narrow for distancing. The situation could be improved by filtering the road through Holyrood Park to prevent car access

Shared rubbish bins block the already narrow pavement on Dalkeith Road. Existing bus lane could be used in whole or part to widen pavement

Too many drug addicts and Eastern European beggars blocking the pavement

Very narrow bridge with shared pedestrian/cycle pavement - take space from road (that has hashing) for a segregated cycleway

Path is far too narrow and has barriers. Remove barriers and a traffic lane to allow pedestrians and cyclists access

Pavement needs widening road signals need raising up. They are obstructive

The pavement is damaged and sunken due to heavy trucks parking here during housebuilding directly opposite. The pavement is only on one side of the road and is not 2 metres wide to allow for physical distancing.

Bike racks And people queuing for Tesco block pavement here

Widen pavements on both sides to allow physical distancing. At least as far as the hospital entrance, and probably as far as Balcarres St.

Pavement too narrow. Remove/close for cars best choice or traffic calling measures. So near a primary school.

Narrow path forces people onto road to distance socially. Awkward as lots of cars parked along there usually

A very fast rat run which makes physical distancing unpleasant and dangerous. Wider pavements, or traffic calming measures needed.

A very fast rat run which makes physical distancing unpleasant and dangerous. Wider pavements, or traffic calming measures needed.

Traffic island busy pedestrian crossing. Traffic from Morningside Road rat races through this junction morning and evening as students, school children, and parents try to cross.

Improve crossing safety. Add central island with additional traffic light, but maintain single crossing phase for pedestrians.

Change traffic light priority to better favour pedestrians and cyclists.

Add traffic islands to all branches of the roundabout to slow motor traffic down.

Add traffic islands to all branches of the roundabout to slow motor traffic down.

Add traffic islands to all branches of the roundabout to slow motor traffic down.

Footways too narrow and with barriers. This is also in front of a school. Social distancing is impossible here. Lose a lane of traffic and widen footways.

Junction very hazardous for pedestrians to cross. Traffic obstacle needed to make cars slow down and take note for people crossing.

Extremely narrow pavement. Wide enough for only one person. Lose a lane of traffic, widen the path and the cycle lane.

Barriered pavements both sides of a busy road. Space not wide enough to pass safely on foot.

Busy road needing more space for people to access key shops and maintain distancing.

The path around Craigmillar Castle, marked on OSM, is just a worn track in the grass!

So the path around Craigmillar Castle, marked on OSM, turned out to be a worn grass path!

A desire line to join the path from the road in Holyrood Park.

The worn track reveals the true desireline between the Union Canal and Cultins Road.

Poor quality path access at Harrison Road bridge

Not one of Edinburgh's finest railway paths.

Permanently flooded path on the Union Canal. Resurfaced and drained in 2017
