Streetworks cycling consultation recently came to an end.
Cyclist’s had contact the Streetworks team to talk about ways in which the road by Ira Court could be made safer as it was proving difficult for them to cycle along this stretch of road due to the new position of the car parking bays. The bays were pushing cyclists further out into the traffic.
As a community project Streetworks investigated this concern and one of the ideas that came forward from the consultation was to create car parking bays in between the trees – ensuring that walkers still have lots of space on the pavement, and cyclists aren’t being pushed out into traffic.
The idea has now been modelled and though car parking spaces will have to be reduced form 8 to 6 it is felt this is a positive compromise in order to ensure that cyclists remain safe on the roads.
