Edinburgh royal infirmary at little France have introduced a no through road with a bus/taxi lane only which is not marked with the usual greenways that are on any other road. It is badly sign posted and there are no - no entry signs in place. This was introduced in June 2013.
Still to this day. As a result people who are visiting or attending the hospital and are looking for parking spaces are not aware that this lane exists and do not understand or notice the inadequate signage and are being fined £60. People are often in distress when they visit hospitals and do not deserve to be hit by fines like this due to bad signage when they are only looking for a parking space to visit a loved one. In one of few hospitals that already charge for parking due to its location.

Is this the one round the back near car park F? Have you got pictures? Only I'm fairly sure it is signposted.

I'm working there tomorrow will definitely have a look. If far as I know it's the council fining people and not the hospital. Parking charges are still in effect there because it's a PFI hospital there is nothing that can be done about that unfortunately.
