The Anonymous Widower

Edinburgh’s Missing Link

In Edinburgh, I’ve walked in an Easterly direction, several times through Princes Street Gardens, with the final intention of taking a train from Edinburgh station.

But as the pictures show, there’s no way through.

You have to walk up to the road, fight your way across a pedestrian crossing and then walk down a ramp into the station.

Why isn’t there a pedestrian tunnel?

  1. Because Edinburgh City Council are blithering.

    The only proper interchange between the trains, buses and trams is at Haymarket. Other wise the stops are over 100m apart and none server Waverley properly.

    The implementation of the trams was so bad (massively over budget, years late, incomplete, trams in mothballs etc. etc.) that there is a special public inquiry into how they managed to mess it up so completely: –

    Operation is extremely poor as well.

    • So is ticketing! There is no day ticket that includes all buses and the trams. Perhaps it’s all to discourage visitors!
