There seems to be a motorists blocking cycle lane problem here. Trust us, this isn’t a one-off, it’s the norm at rush hour and at many other hours.

The red highlighting surface no longer matching the cycle lane markings does not help, but we’re not sure fixing that would solve the main issue.

  1. This junction is incredibly badly laid out – most north- and southbound traffic uses the bike lane as a queue for the two tiny left turn filters that only exist for a couple of car lengths before the junction. It’s best approached during rush-hour gridlock when vehicles are stationary.

  2. The bus stops should be moved to Abbey street or Marlborough street. Thati’ll free up a lane for traffic turning left , have the cycle lane(segregated) in the middle and straight on traffic to the right of it.
