The A54 is an extremely busy arterial road from Chester to the East. The local lanes are very popular with cyclists but any journey has to cross the A54 at some point. One of the few available is between Wicker Lane and Stamford Lane. This is a staggered cross with about 100 yds along the A54 between the lanes. An attempt has been made to make this crossing safer for cyclists with a central refuge and a footpath type cycle lane along the road. However it is still very dangerous and cyclist have to somehow get across the traffic which is very dense and at times very fast. Short of having a bridge or tunnel I think the only cost effective solution is the installation of traffic lights.
