The intimidating ordeal that is an everyday reality for pedestrians and cyclists at the Cawdor Road/Balblair Road junction was plainly visible this morning as the Scottish Government's Reporter, Iain Urquhart led a site visit down the brae from the war memorial. The site visit also included other parts of the Cawdor Road and the Reporter witnessed an ambulance with blue lights flashing having to wait to enter a congested Waverly Road. Later today we will post more images of the hearing's site visit.
An ambulance with blue lights flashing having to wait to enter a congested Waverly Road that alone should be enough to fail the application
The Gods are shining on the apellants!
Strange how all the grass and overgrown foliage on the pavement side of the brae, especially on the side going up towards the hospital, has been cut. Coincidence, or did the cut just coincide with the site visit?
Coincidence or not anon, a good job that it has been cut. In recent years the overhang has just simply made it worse for pedestrians when neglected.
I have always wonder with there being a hospital the other side of the give way sign that you should be giving way to traffic heading towards the Hospital just encase! But who am I!
That is in fact what you do anon, the image in the article is looking back into town. Although not everybody obeys the instruction however.
I suggest you have another look at how it was cut the top still over hangs the foot path with the result people still get wet from the water falling of the over hang and to avoid this you have to walk on the out side with the result you get the soaked with spray and wet from the top and if you are lucky don't get get hit with a passing vehicle.
What they have installed on the brae is a accident waiting to happen. I have asked at Community councils to have it removed but in the mean time it is serving there purpose. What I get told is they have it covered. but there again it is not them that face the danger.
Get the houses built the bairns need them
on the traffic situation i was sitting at the albert st lights which were at green but i couldnt go anywhere as the leopold ones were red along comes a schoolgirl sees the traffic stopped runs across the road without waiting for the greenman accident waiting to happen or what
Did anyone notice how much smoother the traffic was running the other day when the albert street and Seabank light were off.
I agree with what Murd Dunbar says. I was out walking with a friend recently and you can not walk two abreast going up the brae. My friend got her arm hit by a passing car. I dont't know how mums with young children manage. It is a serious accident waiting to happen.
Did your friend need treatment anon? It seems there are quite a few tales of people being given glancing blows by cars on the brae. It all needs to be recorded somewhere. Maybe complaints to councillors would help?
