Cycle and Pedestrian Routes info

Subject Cycle and Pedestrian Paths in general Scotland

  1. Cycle and pedestrian paths are 100% funded by Sustrans (a UK wide charity based at Bristol that supports cyclists).
  2. Sustrans design these routes with the cyclist in mind.  That is to encourage cycling and exercise.
  3. My comment… There is also another group that use the routes.   That is pedestrians,  I must say that any General Practitioner recommends walking as a means of exercise.  Therefore, in a mixed-use environment, the safety of all users need to be considered, not just cyclists.  Therefore, there should be clear instructions to cyclists and pedestrians to take care on these traffic ways.  This is important as it is not the usual custom for cyclists to ride in what could be considered a pedestrian space.
  4. It is also noted that on a Sunday on one recently upgraded Sustrans cycle/pedestrian path at about 9:40 am a cyclist came at speed on a pathway towards some pedestrian traffic lights.  At that day and that time, there were no others on the pathway. (I suspect but don’t know but that the route may have been designed to 18mph standards  – here there should also be a sign asking cyclists and pedestrians to take care).  More markings are needed on any such pathways to make clear the mixed usage.

The earth for ever is the Lord’s (Psalm 24)

The earth for ever is the Lord’s (Psalm 24)
Hymn Written by Isaac Watts 17 July 1674 to 25 November 1748
Tune Amazing Grace

The earth for ever is the Lord’s,
With Adam’s num’rous race;
He raised its arches o’er the floods,
And built it on the seas.

But who among the sons of men
May visit thine abode?
He that has hands from mischief clean,
Whose heart is right with God.

This is the man may rise and take
The blessings of his grace;
This is the lot of those that seek
The God of Jacob’s face.

Now let our souls’ immortal powers
To meet the Lord prepare,
Lift up their everlasting doors,
The King of glory’s near.

The King of glory! who can tell
The wonders of his might?
He rules the nations; but to dwell
With saints is his delight

ScotRail – Delays for April 2019

Not many people understand the frustration, heartache, and hassle when the trains are late. 

The odd glitch of course with any mode of transport is acceptable. 

Below you will see a long list of late train times for the month. 

But the image here is to highlight the bit I just can’t catch easily.  That is the continual reduction of rail transport carriages at peak time at the busy rail stations.  Image courtesy of James Henderson on Twitter.

Three carriage service reduced to two carriages almost daily see:
