    I presume you've sent a link of this to the cycling officer chap?

    I visited the boat/barge last week and filled in the form. The main point I thought of was the blocked access by parked cars. The consultation was suppose to be for Harrison Park East, but I mainly use HP West, I guess it's the same people.

    @southwest_team Easy peasey -- Dropped kerb where footpath meets Harrison Rd to ease access for buggies, bikes, wheelchairs etc

    @southwest_team Woo-hoo! All 100+ cyclists who went 'bump' on their way to @POPScotland on Saturday will be thrilled! Many thanks :)

    I think the pink aggregate works rather well. The problem with a lot of the cycle lanes is when the red stuff starts crumbling and being washed away it all becomes rather lumpy and makes for an uncomfortable ride.

    I suspect (without any evidence whatsoever) that the pink aggregate will get better as it ages. Presumably at the start the pink pebbles have a certain amount of tar on them: as this wears off they will get pinker...

    We'll have to see.

    Still waiting for this to be sorted!

    That car is parked legally over the 'famous' dropped kerb.

    Legal bits in process somewhere ...

    Iirc there was a man near saughton park used to paint his own yellow lines and the council eventually agreed on his take, think he may have had a disability and needed to park his car so the lines took a meander? This was a while back.

    Given the state of the yellow line before the dropped kerb wouldn't 't take much paint to deter some people from parking there.

    The one at Cultins rd to come off the canal almost always has a vehicle parked across it. The one at roseburn coming from the path through Murrayburn similar
