Latest Sick Cycle Lane of Surrey

After using this cycle lane a few times, I felt the need to record it (and add some comments/criticisms).  I took this video last weekend near the tail end of Sunday afternoon ride.

I have commented in the video how the cycle path doesn’t meet Surrey County Council’s own standards. However to be fair to Surrey County Council they do have a lack of standards when it comes to cycling infrastructure.  Their 2007-2011 Cycling Strategy stated (inter alia) committed them:

To review internal working processes and procedures to ensure all new and improved facilities and their maintenance fully meet national and Surrey standards.

Since Surrey County Council have said that they will adhere to “national standards”, these are what they should be held accountable to: The Cycling England Design Standards and the Department for Transport Design Standards

Surrey County Council has promised to publish a new Cycling Strategy by the end of 2012, so it will be interesting to see whether they are going to start getting serious about these points or whether they are going to continue with the woeful and piecemeal approach of the last five years.
