    Surely not a coincidence so soon after the contraflow cycle lane was 'installed'? https://www.reddit.com/r/Edinburgh/comments/13m1kol/car_burns_out_in_tollcross/

    This BMW driver objected to the cyclist heading the other direction, tried to force cyclist in to park cars by moving over to wrong side of road. Valleyfield Street.

    There's to be a video survey on this next week. You know what to do...

    Looks like there was surveying equipment going in tonight. On a lamppost, corner of Leven St and Valleyfield St

    Use it or lose it

    Well the surveying equipment didn't last long.

    Seems to have disappeared today, with loads of cable ties still left wrapped round the lamppost - was it removed legitimately ???

    If so, it's pretty messy of the contractors (CLS) to leave plastic waste and visible eyesore on a brand new lamppost

    The traffic counter equipment is back - rubber strip counters, one on Valleyfield, the other on Leven St

    I think they can discern between vehicle type and direction

    Not sure if this has been posted before -

    Frequently asked Questions.

    Q1 Why is this taking so long?
    In 2015 the Councils Transport departments went through a transformation. During this time staff numbers were reduced and statutory duties were prioritised over projects
    development. Since then a consultant has been appointed to collate the results from the previous consultation and take forward the design incorporating the 2014 feedback.
