Cambridge cycle lane set for approval
Bookmark and Share
Plans to implement a cycle lane in a street in Cambridge are set to be given the green light by council officials.

Cambridge-news.co.uk reports that the £400,000 project will see the existing cycle lane on Gilbert Road extended to 1.7m wide and a solid white boundary installed to safeguard those donning their cycling gear for the trip to walk.

Yellow lines will also be painted to prevent cars from parking in the lane or on the verge.

Transport officials at Cambridgeshire County Council claim that more than 900 cyclists have to contend with parked vehicles taking up their space, which increases the chances of accident and injury.

Councillor Roy Pegram told the news provider that a cabinet meeting will take place next week to iron out any issues which still need to be resolved.

Cyclists in Cambridge recently established a new website to name and shame drivers who park in lanes specifically designed for cycling enthusiasts.
