The fully segregated cycle path is designed to be fully protected from car traffic, an unbroken route avoiding communal bins and bus stops.

@KnitBikeNom tweeted: “This isn’t good enough! Council vehicle ‘parked’ not only on pavement but wholly obstructing cycle path. SA15 YRV Croall Place 1315 #parkanywherelights”

A council spokesperson said: “We are currently investigating this incident.”

Spokes Lothian and Living Streets Scotland have been contacted for comment.
