How about a safer way of sharing the embankment between cyclists and pedestrians? Some clear segregation would help, rather than cyclists weaving in and out of pedestrians, as would adherance to the "no cycling" signs such as in front of the Oxo building. I see no reason why this pleasant traffic free route should not be shared, but a mutual respect could make it a lot safer for us all. Any thoughts?

I agree with Peter Puttick's suggestion of a segregation scheme. The Thames path is safe, fume-free and direct for cyclists, unlike the "designated" Cycle Route 4 which is a dangerous congested mess. Only problem is to get it into the heads of the councillors and MPs, some of whom are rancidly anti-cyclist. And as an afterthought, what about the runners? and the rollerbladers?

being a runner who was recently injured by a cyclist the sooner this happens the better. The Oxo walkway is a deathtrap waiting to happen Sooner or later a kiddy is going to get killed walking from one side of the pillars to the other. I would say 95% of cyclists ignore the notices at either end.

The original plans were that an impact study would be carried out for the remainder of this year, with work due to start in Jan/Feb 2001
