I try to be postive about new cycle infrastructure, but this is a puzzle to me....am I missing something?
I diverted off my commute route past McEwan Square going from Hawmarket to the canal to have a look at Evans and trundled down Brandfield Street in that direction.
I came to Grove Street, which is one-way in the wrong direction, so I dismounted, aiming to walk round on to Fountainbridge.
But there, just before the junction I saw this:
Was I really expected to cycle along the short and narrow pavement past the bin and round the blind corner onto the Grove Street pavement? There were no signs on Grove street to cause pedestrians to expect cyclists and I don't think the pavement is really suitable for shared use there.
This just seems to be a sign stuck up at random that's not much use and might actualy be a hazard. Have I got it wrong?
