    Got some Cornwallis Place bollards to put up here, once I can get Flickr to play ball with its URLs...

    Nice trip hazard in that first pic.

    No tactiles!

    And presumable no children using that path...

    (Or just too sensible not to need chicanes!?)

    Nice trip hazard in that first pic.

    The first one is across the road to the David Lloyd Centre in Gyle Park, and yes quite a trip hazard - also grounding hazard for the tandem.

    This is my preferred non-tarmac route across Gyle park that I referred to in the 'new route signs thread' (signs still not fixed!)

    And presumable no children using that path...

    "Streetview begs to differ"

    Can't see any.

    BUT noticed that bollards on far side are in the middle of the pavement!!!

    Off to the left is a small kid on a bike approaching.

    Slightly clearer here (and a good view of the bollards in the middle of the pavement.)

    Cornwallis Place permeable:

    Have to say these have worked a treat by closing off a taxi-driver's favourite rat run (with the usual 12 months of taxi driver moaning that it's the customers who are having to pay for it), making Royal Crescent much quieter and allowing an easy cyclists' cut-through to the top of the NEPN at George V Park.

    Simple, cheap, effective.

    Though it's the setts that do the speed calming!

    In triplicate. I mean it's not as if anyone with a pram, or a wheelchair, or a zimmer frame would want to go that way. Of course not.

    I love how the Edinburgh Park chicane above actually leads you directly over a manhole when it could have been set up to do the opposite. Thankfully, that one seems pretty secure for now.
