Cycle Lane bollards burst the bubbles in this bathroom store

Edinburgh based business, Napier Bathrooms and Interiors have become more and more fed up over the last few weeks, after plastic rods placed at the edge of the cycle lane have been driven over by a bus and stopped an ambulance being able to pass cars whilst on a blue lights response.

The Canonmills based showroom, took to their twitter page to share the footage on two separate occassions. The first showed a Scottish Ambulance Service vehicle responding to a call on blue lights. The car at the front becomes stuck between two of the plastic bollards, preventing the second car from moving. The Scottish Ambulance Service have been approached for comment.

Subsequent footage then showed a double decker belonging to Lothian Buses drive over the plastic cycle rod, and continue to drive away. It’s prompted concerns about cyclist safety after the road was narrowed for the cycle lane.

Lothian Buses have been invited to comment after viewing the footage.

However, not everyone shared the same point of view as the award winning bathroom showroom, with many countering their arguments on Twitter.

Edge Radio has invited; The Scottish Ambulance Service, Lothian Buses and Edinburgh City Council to comment on the situation outside Napier Bathrooms and Interiors.
