Bridge Road

With the welcome completion of the cycle path linking Marshall Road to Bridge Road, the weaknesses of links on either side of the route become more apparent.

Bridge Road is a busy, narrow main road. Traffic mostly has to wait behind cyclists, creating uncomfortable conditions for all but the brave. Both roundabouts (at the Chalk Road/Meadrow and the Bridge Street/Wharf Street junctions) are difficult for cyclists (and pedestrians).

An alternative route, either running parallel to the road (a widened shared use footway?) or a raised boardwalk across the Lammas Lands, are alternatives, but both are expensive, challenging options, which require new or wider bridges over Hell Ditch and the River Wey.
