Cycle lanes of Surrey: Chertsey


Dear Surrey County Council,

Your ingenuity is boundless. Unlike Paris, Berlin and other places, you not only provide cycle lanes where there is convenient space, but you provide cycle lanes where ever there is even just the smallest amount of convenient space.  Such dedication.

In the photo above you have found about 12 metres of space for cycles exiting the roundabout straight ahead. Such grandeur and style: Not for you the basic stuff of how a cyclist is going to approach the roundabout or traverse it. You couldn’t have done better if, as an afterthought, you had noticed a bit of spare space where the traffic-separating island goes, and asked the question “What could we put here?”.

Here’s a video that I did earlier. The “action” starts 15 seconds (about half-way) in:

In case you think this is an exceptional case, here’s another 10 metre cycling lane from Surrey.
