Bexley Council Introduced to Cycling Hazards

Two Bexley Councillors and a council traffic engineer were introduced to the problems encountered by cyclists in the Bexley borough.

The councillors John Lawrenson and Ian Clement, along with Bob Clark were taken on a tour by Frances Renton, by local resident and Bexley Cycling and Road Safety Forum and London Cycling Campaign member. The trip covered about 6 miles.

During the tour, the councillors were shown issues that confront cyclists such as:

  • Traffic lights which do not allow enough time for cyclists to cross intersections
  • Locations where traffic island limit road width making cycling hazardous
  • ’Cushions’ which force cars to line up behind cyclists

The tour provided the councillors with ‘food for thought’, who would consider making alterations when the roads were due for attention.
