: Cycle route or cycle hazard ?

With just £100K allocated this will consist of just some painted lines on the existing highway and not a separate trackway for cyclists removed from proximity to the road itself. Given the congestion on this road at present introducing cyclists will probably just lead to more accidents and/or deaths or just slow traffic down even further. The increased exposure to pollution should be a life changer in itself. As a cyclist myself I will stick to safer routes than this to get my exercise. Just another example of magical thinking from our (failed) leaders.
