Cycle Lanes of Surrey: Short and bendy


I have pointed out how Surrey County Council like to take cyclists to a tricky intersection and then abandon them.

The lane above falls more into the category of doing something futile for cyclists. What the Council seem to be saying is “intersection ahoy! Mount the pavement, take the corner, get back on the road”. So there is no consistent allocation of space to pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. This also sends a mixed message to road users: yesterday’s lane says “make space for cyclists at the intersection”. Today’s lane (which is actually the same intersection but a different approach) suggests that “cyclists should move out of the way of cars at the intersection”.
