  • King St - cycle route sorely needed

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    King St/Ellon Road is a main artery into Aberdeen.  We are advised that the traffic volumes due tot he AWPR have reduced and in order to lock in this benefit there need to be some urgency to utilise freed up road space to more sustainable forms of transport. 

    And no - the parallel NCR1 isn't suitable.  It's hilly with cobbles and have weird diverts.  as a tourist route through the university and Old Aberdeen, its fine.

  • Cycle path though Clay Farm Community Garden

    Created by Dave Fox // 1 thread

    There is to be a new cycle path running W-E through the developing community garden in the Clay Farm development in Cambridge's southern fringe. It follows the line of a gas main (purple line on the plan).

    The garden is already split by Hobson Avenue running N-S. The cycle route crosses that road and there are four 15metre wide gaps in the hedge where the cycle route enters/exits the garden.

    The cycle path will probably have a chicane design at each end to slow cyclists at junction points. Here are some questions about the cycle path:

    * How can the design ensure safety at the Hobson Road crossing?
    * What should the four entrances/exits be like?
    * What garden features should there be along the cycle path’s route?
    * Should there be lighting?
    * What other questions occur to you about the cycle path, and what answers can you offer?

    This is part of a consultation intended for local residents, however I hope that someone here might be able to comment especially on the safety of the junctions where the cycle route crosses Hobson Avenue.

    (The cycle route also crosses the busway at the Foster Road stop, though I guess that bit is beyond the scope of the community garden's consultation.)

    Feel free to ask me here for clarifications, and please comment at the community garden's page below.
