Letter to the editor | Cycling on pavements along the A259

Dear Editor,

 

Having recently heard that highways england are planning a cycle scheme where the A259 pavements are to be re-engineered into 2 way cycle tracks with a design speed of 30 kph, I feel that the safety of both cyclists and pedestrians will be compromised by this strange approach.

 

Surely the most obvious approach is to put the cycle lanes onto the actual road and to provide clear demarcation lines between cars and cyclists? In fact this already exists on stretches of the A259 and works very well.

 

Reducing pavement widths for pedestrians or attempting to share the same path with cyclists does not seem to be neither safe nor fair to either pedestrians or cyclists.

 

Yours
