Improve Portway Cycle Track
The cycle track currently runs along the footpath very close to the outbound traffic lanes. The path is also quite uneven & some cyclists unwisely use the bus lane as a cycle track.
The outward bound two lanes are rarely, if ever full due no doubt to the free flow onto the motorway rather than the inbound lane which is constricted into Bridge valley Junction & the Cumberland basin. It would be interesting to do a traffic survey to checkout the viability of making the lane a cycletrack completely segregated from vehicles.
Why the contribution is important
Regrettably there have been cycle deaths on the portway, segregated cycle tracks should greatly reduce cycling risks.
It would act as a traffic calming method especially if a blanket 30mph limit is introduced.
It would improve the environment in the gorge.
