COVID-19 Safety Measures
COVID-19 Safety Measures
Braid Road, on the left, is closed as an emergency measure to help pedestrians and cyclists to travel safely while observing physical distancing. Braid Road is one of the first three roads to be closed in this initiative. It is normally quite a busy alternative route between two radial A-routes into the city from the south; this is at the northern end of the closure. The City of Edinburgh Council seems to be quite anti private car, and this could well be the thin end of the wedge - the notice states 'In the medium term, as lockdown measures continue and are eventually eased, we will develop a citywide approach to more significant changes, such as expanded cycle lanes and the creation of bus gates. Longer term, it is proposed that progress on more permanent schemes under the Active Travel Programme is brought forward.'
