Where does one even begin to describe their horror?
Similar design to the one involved in Mr Lang's death:
If you think about it, it means you MUST give way to vehicles that are behind you.
Dunno - but it's costing over £1 million a mile.
Official non-response now available at https://www.facebook.com/cyclecityconnect/posts/460067474174494 - until cityconnect delete it, which they can, as page admins.
At least they havent installed fences:
They haven't installed fences YET.
The painted word "SLOW" is presumably a description of the individuals who came up with this design, right?
Bradford are currently in the process of removing the majority of roadside fences. Schools will be an exception along with blind entrances onto the road.
Nice access road for the taxi company & the shops though!
Because schools are just where we want to crush inexperienced cyclists against a fence?
Fashions change. Now they're removing them but unless we get good compulsory national design standards for cycleways that ban such things, like we have for carriageways, any nobber council can start reinstalling fences any time.
Outside the gates only, at schools. Stop an exit straight into the roads, by anyone exiting on foot.
Their response seems to be a complete pack of lies, nobody approved that, no cyclist would ever approve that nonsense.
Heavens forbid any motorists should have to deal with a pedestrian. Or that any road near a school should be closed when there are lots of children exiting.
Or that a small child, with no sense of danger run straight out the gate either. Even a bunch of older ones coming onto the road can affect how you'd ride your bike.
How did that white van thing get parked there? Is that a dropped kerb for vehicles?
Looks like my 10 year old drew the layout .....
