One of Scotland’s top transport academics has called for greater investment in Edinburgh’s “very poor” roads – warning that we are falling far behind many similar European cities.

Professor Iain Docherty, from the University of Glasgow, said potholes, cracked pavements and cycling facilities are overlooked across the Capital at the expense of large infrastructure projects.

The former non-executive director of Transport Scotland delivered his scathing verdict following a visit to the spring meeting of cycle campaign group Spokes.
