As recently reported, the bollards replacing the traffic cones on Chesterfield Avenue cycle track are an interim solution.

As part of two 9-month “pilot studies” North Road is to be made one-way with a two-way cycle path alongside the one-way section, and a modal filter is being implemented on the Upper Glen Road. The enabling works are on-going on North Road but, as shown below, look to be at an advanced stage.
