"We want the council to either move the cycleway to the south-side of the street, so that pedestrians aren't forced to cross it to get to a bus, or ensure there is a more distinct separation between the cycleway and the footpath. We'd also like audio-crossing signals positioned along the street.."
@iain Several of us were handlebar flyering the local area in the lead-up to the event. @i was the creator of them. I did try and get some shops to put-up our posters but it looked like they didn't get the manager's approval. I think the walking and cycling pound flyers went down well.
It seems to have been in every paper, but none of the links are working (for me) now.
Though if it was Waterloo St that accidentally led you on to the M8 you'd be on the left hand side wouldn't you? (And you'd surely stay there....)
It make sense to build infra for parking at the beginning and end of the bike journey too.
It would be good to campaign the council to have stronger development policies. Some ideas:
Mandatory storage for new homes
Developers are responsible for repair and upkeep of a new area for up to 20 years - means they build it well first time round.
Parking at non-residential buildings like mentioned above.
Filtered permeability in new housing areas and no rat-runs.
Contribute to new cycle paths on main roads that connect to development.
