Fountainbridge Junction Improvements

Pretty significant changes proposed for the road junction at 'Fountainbridge/Gardner's Crescent' ... currently a roundabout, soon to be a traffic signalled controlled junction?

All the details can be found here (including maps of 'before' and potentially 'after') and the Council are looking for comments/feedback on the plans prior to Friday 27th November.

I think it's important to stress that as well as the obvious vehicular traffic changes, these alterations will link up all the cycling routes from the canal (and the residential areas alongside!) to the West End, Lothian Road and the financial area of the city.

One can only hope that it all goes a bit more smoothly than the works at the Kings Road Roundabout last year :-(

... surely?
