Bus stops and crossings in new highways works are always tricky in terms of off-carriageway infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists as they are inherently points where desire line cross.
We asked the County Council about the possible conflict between bus passengers alighting and passing cyclists near the bus stops in the Slade. Here is the response we received:
The areas outside the bus stops and crossings are shared space rather than cycle lane/pedestrian lane so both users share priority. The appropriate signage and markings will be in place in order to remind users of the change in priority.
