The Poor Engineering of the Edinburgh Tram

The poor engineering of the Edinburgh tram
This is Edinburgh City Council's answer to one of the problems created by the poorly engineered tram line; tiny, non-standard signs, one of which I found mounted directly behind a traffic light box. The tram line includes a combined tram, bus, taxi, and cycle lane, proclaiming loudly the incompetent design. Cyclists are required to take a shallow angle across the tram tracks to follow the cycle route, and as a result there have been many injuries. The Dutch keep trams and cycles as far apart as possible, or have them cross at 90 degrees to each other, but where having cyclists cross tram rails at a shallow angle is unavoidable, there is a standard solution called VeloSTRAIL ( Edinburgh has opted for a cheap retrofit that will not solve the problem.
