A CYCLE route running from the Meadows to the edge of Holyrood Park would be ­created under new proposals.

The proposal would link the popular parkland to the Innocent Railway tunnel – the start of a longer bike path that heads east, passing through Duddingston, ­Brunstane and Musselburgh.

Under the fresh plans – which have been laid out by the city council – cyclists would ride along Buccleuch Street, Gifford Park, Rankeillor Street and St ­Leonard’s Street.

Pavements would be widened on some roads such as Hermit’s Croft to make room for both pedestrians and cyclists to share the space, according to the plans.
