Merging of cycle lane with The Ride

Where the quite good segregated cycle lane joins The Ride, DfT advice was certainly NOT followed. As per DfT advice, when cycle lanes are merged with the carriageway, it should be done via a length of dropped kerb that is flush with the carriageway and the cycle lane shouldn't be joined at a 90 degree angle to the road.

Here, the cycle lane runs parallel to the road for a short distance before it loops around a large boulder specifically placed to force cyclists around and then finally joins the road at a 90 degree angle.

The kerb, though dropped, is far from flush and creates a risk for cyclists joining the track from the road.

This junction between the road and the track should be scrapped and redone according to DfT guidelines.
