“Cycling Infrastructure” from Surrey Council

At first I thought that this is “new” infrastructure from Surrey County Council.  Reviewing my video of last month I see that this is not the case and the cycle lane has been there for some time (unnoticed by me).  The fact that I have cycled this route several times and not noticed the cycle lane before tells me something.  Besides for this, it is clearly bolt-on after-thought infrastructure, lacking vision, it’s part of a piecemeal design, it links up to no other cycle path, it provides no benefit to cyclists, it provides an inconvenience as it forces cyclists to yield to the entrance to Robert Denholm House as well as when rejoining the road, and it will not be used by cyclists. In short it is a waste of money, except as some tick-box exercise.
