Cyclist died yesterday in Cheltenham


They are building a new trade park on the edge of the main Tewkesbury road roundabout, and re surfacing and widening all the approaches to it.

I came through the Kingsditch area yesterday afternoon, and it was totally gridlocked, this extended right across the town. Anyway thinking that it was because of the resurfacing work, I made my way through.

Anyway,I found out it was because a cyclist went under the wheels of a contractors lorry on the roundabout mid afternoon.

RIP :ohmy:

Very sad news indeed.

Would be interesting if anyone could post here when some facts emerge.

The posted comments on the Echo site are interesting. There's a volume of posts from ordinary motorists saying how they've found the roadworks dangerous, badly managed and that they're not surprised that an accident has happened. My view too - I go past once or twice a week. There's also a post from some professional telling us we're all wrong and don't understand. When we know the facts surrounding the incident then we can judge whether the roadworks were a contributory factor. It won't change the view we all seem to have that they're a shambles.

I urge all cyclists to give large vehicles as wide a berth as possible at all times even if it causes a small delay to your journey, it's better than ending up like this feller.
