    dalmeny chicanes gaps are way too tight and are unhelpful to negotiate uphill but when you add smartphone distracted pedestrians and/or untethered wayward dogs / toddlers in the mix, as is often the case, its beyond a joke

    Judging by the state of the grass/hedge either side of the barriers (being non compliant I'm going to stop calling them chicanes) plenty cyclists have discovered it's less convenient to ignore the non-path for that stretch.

    The development will include footpaths and cycle routes that connect to South Queensferry itself, and there will be a provision of 25 per cent affordable homes.

    @acsimpson, a while back you posted a response from Cala about the plethora of chicanes on the cycle path:

    "The barriers placed across the cycleway at the southern road crossing are a temporary measure. These have been put in place as a safety measure while we are installing the monobloc surface to our main road out of this phase. While these works are on going our clients have to access their properties from the Barratt side and so there will be increased traffic across the cycleway while these topping off works are completed. These works will be taking place over the next 2/3 months as we complete this phase of the site. It is our intention to remove the barriers thereafter."

    The building work at this part of the site now seems pretty much to be finished. As promised, can we expect Cala to now remove these "barriers"? Although they do have an air of permanence about them.

    Hi fiefster,
    I emailed Dennis again at the end of March to ask about progress but haven't yet had a response. I've just send him a little chaser so will report back when I hear anything.

    Did someone mention they have a cordless angle grinder?

    As the ground gets drier I think the detours over the grass will be getting used more often to bypass the chicanes!

    Cala, providing someone regularly nips their ears, have been good on Brunswick Road at doing what they said they would.
