Fountainbridge cycle strategy published
June 2 2014draft proposals.
Over the next few years a number of developments are planned along its banks including a new Boroughmuir School, homes and retail outlets, creating a pressing need to formulate a management strategy for the anticipated growth in users.
The document recommends several interventions to the already busy route including improved access and paving together with on-road cycling improvements to segregate fast cyclists from pedestrians via new lanes.
Report author Marion Perez of Urban Pioneers warned that much work, not to mention funding, is still required to realise the proposals but said: “It is possible to improve behaviour with good design and I believe these improvements would greatly help all towpath users.”
