I’m really pleased – Busway news! I just got home from work and an email from my contact in Luton Borough Council was telling me some welcome news. Without further ado here it is:
Following site audits and survey, the recommendation is that a number
of A-Frame gates should be removed or changed to provide easier access
to the shared use path. If funding allows, works will begin in the
financial year 2014/15. Happy to provide further updates as and when
I am sure this is welcome news for the many cyclists who use the cycle track and struggle with the barriers; I certainly hope the funding will be there to allow this work to take place. Local Authorities have had eye-watering reductions in their funding over recent years and here’s hoping this can be done.
The important thing is this development will allow everyone to use the cycle track in a pleasant manner: its great for cyclists, runners, dog walkers, power walkers and anyone taking a stroll. My guess is that if this is abused, people will understandably complain and the A frame barriers could be refitted – let’s hope this isn’t necessary.
