The existing advisory cycle lanes on Grassyards Road (between Strawberry Bank Road and Sutherland Drive) will soon be improved through the installation of “soft segregation” measures.
Wands and kerb units will be installed to prevent vehicles from entering the cycle lane, either to pass other vehicles or to park. These soft segregation measures help to reduce feelings of vulnerability, particularly amongst novice cyclists and those who only cycle occasionally, increasing their confidence and therefore supporting cycling as a method of active travel.
The measures will be in place for up to 18 months with installation programmed for April 2021.
After installation it will be possible to give feedback on the scheme using an online questionnaire and monitoring will be undertaken to help to determine if the measures could be made permanent.
