At the planning stage of this change to the road layout was any consideration given to the
provision of a cycle lane?

It seems to me the width taken away from the car lane would have made an excellent cycle
lane, including space taken by kurb stones to separate it from the main flow of traffic. I
doubt the overall cost of these works would have been significantly affected, and I would
have expected that encouraging cyclists would be a good thing where there is clearly
insufficient road space for motorized traffic.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Owen Lydiard
