Protected Cycle Space Finally Coming to Elm Grove??!!

April 3, 2024 / Comments (0)


From Cycling Forum: For years now, many cyclists have complained, reported and commented about persistent anti-social parking in the painted cycle lanes around the Elm Grove / Grove Road South crossroads.

In November 2020 a trial scheme to provide protected cycle lanes along Elm Grove and Kings Road was withdrawn within three weeks. However the feedback we received from cyclists was that finally (albeit for a short period) cyclists could access the front of the motor vehicle queue safely. Our report following the trial was that protection should remain here alongside a method to stop parked vehicles blocking access to the protected space.

Funding for a scheme to achieve this was approved by the Transport Cabinet member in December 2021, and two years later we asked for an update and whether it would ever happen.

Finally a Traffic Regulation order has been issued and we would like as many cyclists as possible to respond to the public consultation to support the scheme as designed.
