Leith Central CC’s vice-chair suggests that armadillos may be an undesirable, bolt-on solution for cycle-safety on Leith Walk. While not everyone agrees with their removal, it’s hard to disagree with this:
Arguably, rolling up sleeves and getting the whole length of the Walk finally and speedily done after 10 years of devastation and stop-start repairs – and using up the remaining £5m (?) in the Leith Walk programme pot for an easy-to-read, robust design – should be the focus. And consistent enforcement of basic rules of parking reguations and the Highway Code.
