A “slap in the face” – council promotes cycle commuting … while ripping out bike lane | road.cc
Southampton City Council promises “some simple things which can help you feel more confident and comfortable cycling on the road”
A council’s Facebook post promoting cycling and encouraging people to switch to active travel for their commutes has come as a “slap in the face” following the local authority’s decision earlier this month to remove a protected cycle lane, says one road.cc reader.
Southampton City Council began removing part of the cycle lane on The Avenue on Tuesday following a 15-month trial, reports the Daily Echo. The trial was put in place by the former Labour administration, with the Conservatives taking control after May’s elections.
