Introduce a dedicated cycle lane along Bridge Street, Peterborough.

      Peterborough, United Kingdom

Peterborough City Council claims it wants more people to cycle, yet the Leader, Marco Cereste says people DO NOT WANT a cycle lane along Bridge Street? A cycle lane WOULD increase safety, enable continuous cycling, allow police to concentrate on more pressing matters, remove the need for silly signs and prove Peterborough can emulate other leading cities in the UK who have managed to integrate cycle lanes throughout their centres.

      To ban cycling in a 'sustainable city' is crazy. There's room for everyone on Bridge Street.

      I think there should be a cycle lane as bikes come through town not giving a care about the pedestrian nearly nocking my daughter over several times I always though bike had to be walked through the centre

      I cycle everywhere, pushing a cycle up Bridge Street takes more pavement space than cycling. A dedicated lane keeps cyclists moving away from pedestrians.
