I have put my name to this petition because since the road has been changed to one lane, it has become more dangerous for cyclists, due to vehicles undertaking in the extra wide cycle lane, motorbikes also undertake in the same manner, and emergency vehicles have been filmed using the cycle lane to get round the queues of traffic. This is an accident waiting to happen. There have already been road traffic accidents due to the road changes, and when there is a fatality, the blood will rest firmly on the hands of those who implemented this stupid idea.

I'm signing because Two lanes should be available to motorists doing essential journeys whereas most bicycle riders appear to be merely exercising. And because there is room for both motorised vehicles and bicycles without having to reduce the number of lanes for motorised vehicles to one. As a motorist I pay Road Tax to use the roads, something which leisure cyclists do not pay. I therefore have more right to use the road. And if I should ignore a traffic light at red, my vehicle can be identified from its REGISTRATION PLATE, something which cannot (yet) be done of a bicycle, even though there is More need for that. .

I’ve already witnessed councils backtracking on poor trendy decisions made and now spending more money reversing their idiotic decisions which anybody with a grain of sense would never had implemented.
Good luck with the campaign to override idiocy.

In this uncetain climate, this is an abuse and waste of precious funds on a nonsensical scheme, which could be put to better use in our community.

Ridiculous scheme as not enough cyclists use the road especially in rush hour.

I use, it for work, it was made into a duel carriageway 70 odd years ago to ease traffic congestion and far fewer vehicles and residents in the area.
It was never going to work from the start and this was so obvious.

It creates further congestion on an already congested road
