Biomorphis reveals Edinburgh Leith Walk cycle path plans
Biomorphis has floated plans for a new pedestrian and cycle path on disused railway tracks in the Scottish capital
Connecting existing cycle networks at Gordon Street and Pilrig Park, the project includes communal gardens and a new timberboard bridge suspended over Leith Walk by steel cables.
Existing workshops on Manderston Street will be retained to accommodate a new roof layering and a communal garden.
The scheme has three points of access with stairs and lifts at both Leith Walk and Halmyre Street and a ramp at Pilrig Park.
Timber used will be locally ‘bio-sourced’ and while the structure itself wil be assembled by local artisans, according to a statement from the architect.
