According to Councillor Scott Arthur, the cyclist sustained a shattered elbow and a broken pelvis.
Councillor Arthur tweeted: “This is one of the roads in Edinburgh where a speed limit change has been approved, but hasn't happened yet due to staff workload.”
Biggar Road is currently a 40mph zone, but councillors voted to lower the speed limit to 30mph in February.
However, some believe this change is not enough. One local replied to Councillor Arthur’s tweet, writing: “Put the speed limit down to 30mph and it is still an obscenely hostile road If you’re not in a car.”
