By: Tina WalkerHelp us with info on cycleways after dark
This message is from Jim Brown:
Following a lot of messages and a bit of nagging Terry Douris, the County Councillor responsible for highways, has agreed to a meeting. I do not know yet what day or time of day this might be but it would be extremely useful if a couple of other local cyclists could also attend. He is not from Stevenage and to me it would seem most effective to have this meeting on the cycleways in the dark but even if thatís not practical I am seeking feedback on the worst sections.
So far some seem to be:
Grace Way particularly where the cycle way bends away from the road.
On Broadhall Way near the football club particularly when the various FC lights are off.
Fairlands Way between Lonsdale Road and Webb Rise.
Lower part of Martins Way.
Southern end of Gresley Way (between Ridlins and the A602).
Between the trees alongside the A602 south of the junction with Broadwater Crescent.
Sections where the cycle way is lower than the road (e.g. headlights in cyclists faces on Fairlands Way between the petrol station and Popple Way).
Please could you tell me:
Particularly where any injuries and other mishaps have taken place.
Other sections which are very dark.
Sections with significant surface hazards for those on bikes or on foot.
Any impacts on our programme or on journeys to work, college, school, for leisure, for training.
Any general comments or possible solutions. You may have seen that I have already suggested some more fill in lights.
Please contact me soon to say:
If I have described any of the problem sections incorrectly.
If there are any other sections of cycleway you think should be added to the list and why.
