"A better cycleway proposal: From the above comments it seems car share is the way to fix both excessive numbers of cars and the lack of road width for a proper bike lane on each side of the road. Note that it is only necessary to remove parking from…"

"I am not a fan of bi-dis. Useful for stretches where you need to move cyclists on one side,  but only for that exceptional application. As for parking, I hate resident parking schemes because they promote entitlement to what is a shared…"

"You are right.Though I would hope that the COS starts to move away from the ASAP.  As the cycling network grows such compromises on key arterial links should be avoided. But if you consider the view its either bi-dis or no protected cycling…"

"I agree with you about bi-directional cycleways (bi-di's). BUT, I'm quite sure the people who plan and design the bi-di's at the CoS also agree. They're not doing bi-di's because they think they're the best…"

"Great effort Bill. I agree with your points regarding bidi paths, but I wonder if they should be grouped (even if some of the points need duplication under different headings). For example, in my opinion one critical issue with bidis is both…"
