I have never understood why the Council have not insisted that not only is there a wider pavement but that the cycle path starts at the Stamford sreet traffic lights. The number of cyclists coming down Blackfriars Road in the mornings is amazing,(and good)but, because there is no cycle track from Stamford street to the bridge, trafic in the left hand lane, buses especially, have to move at the speed of the slowest cycle. And it is uphill so some are hardly moving.
This proximity not only slows the public transport adds to the dangers for cyclists.
Is it too late for the Council to do something sensible?
