The next GO Cycle consultation from Kingston Council has been released, seeing segregated cycle lanes being created to ‘connect’ Kingston with New Malden. Whilst MICO is not in any way anti-cyclist, we do have a number of concerns that we would like the Council to address. Residents have until 17th November to have their say and can do so at www.consult.kingston.gov.uk. Please feel free to incorporate our concerns into your response.
|Our initial thoughts on the scheme…|
Improves safety for cyclists
Upgrades a number of crossing points to zebra crossings
Filter lane for Dickerage Road
Removal of the bus lane, which is very well used by residents
Use of continuous footway crossings, which is unsafe for the vulnerable.
Double yellow lines outside independent shops
Removal of a number of right-turn filter lanes, causing traffic chaos
Bridge by BP on Kingston Road is too narrow to fit in all proposed – what about the pigeons under the bridge?
Please send us your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
