Edinburgh Cycle Corridor

20% of King's Buildings users cycle
A NEW £300,000 bike "corridor" for the south of the city has moved a step closer after winning public support. Consultation by the city council found that 75 per cent of respondents supported the scheme.

The route will link Edinburgh University's George Square and King's Buildings campuses. Edinburgh has signed up to the Charter of Brussels, a rather ambitious commitment which would see bikes account for 15 per cent of all journeys in Edinburgh by 2020.

There are also plans to introduce traffic measures on roads which link to the cycle corridor, including George IV Bridge and Melville Drive.
