    Just found this picture that I took nearly a year ago.

    No idea if it still looks like this.

    OR why it was considered to be a good idea to have paving stones rather than tarmac for this section.

    Also

    No idea if this cover is still there.

    Haymarket

    It's disappointing to see this happening in such an important area for pedestrians.

    You know as well as I do that I can't direct staff or interfere with a contract, but I will raise it with the team.

    The footway kerbline does appear to be realigned for a short section of Haymarket Terrace, from the RSO drawings (pg 9). Should probably have included a sliver of purple hatching for the quibblers.

    Of course the LSE tweet ignores the massive areas of footway added in other parts of Roseburn-Haymarket (blue hatching in the RSO drawings) and the pedestrian friendly narrowed side road crossings.

    Yet again, these guys ain't no friends of cycling.

    Plus it's a lot less intimidating being on a narrow footpath next to some bikes than it is streams of roaring Giga-buses coming within an inch of the kerb

    That was for compensation for Roseburn Traders, this is completely different...

    “this is completely different...“

    Yes but I thought Haymarket traders had been after compensation from before work started.

    No problem

    It’s not just an age thing…

    Partly related to ‘us’ trying to understand and keep track of the illogical and irrational!!

    I was sitting in Vigo's cafe on Roseburn Terrace this afternoon. Quite heartening to see the number of cyclists using the route, including wee ones with their parents. Also a car sat in the loading only bay for 3/4 hour, which did impede the motorised traffic somewhat. I couldn't actually see anyone loading or unloading - they must have been v. discreet.

    @Rosie: yes, it’s fairly steady usage throughout the day whenever I pass. Saw an Urban Arrowist with two kids in the front at lunchtime today. Would they have gone this way previously?

    Fantastic to see progress on the City Centre West to East Link at Haymarket. Most of the barriers have gone. See for yourself the result of work to make it safer and easier to walk, wheel + cycle in the area. On track to finish the full route early 2024. edinburgh.gov.uk/ccwel

    As one of the final stages of the project, we are reconstructing the junction of Magdala Crescent and Haymarket Terrace and introducing a cycle and pedestrian zebra crossing. This will also introduce a restriction on vehicles exiting Magdala Crescent onto Haymarket Terrace.

    Unfortunately, due to unforeseen pipework, it took longer than expected for Scottish Water to complete their works before the roadworks reconstruction could begin. Weather conditions have also made working impossible on a few occasions. As a result, we need to work one week after the Festive Break to complete the works.

    now the repair men are out in Melville Street to fix the still incomplete Roseburn-Picardy Place cycleway. All part of normal snagging says the council, all part of the usual incompetence and shoddy workmanship say local residents.
