Our best of British examples are exciting, as there’s so much room for improvement. I would recommend a complete upgrade for your Portswood Road, Southampton illustration. The existing narrow and worn cycle lanes are probably more dangerous than if they weren’t there because drivers think they can drive right up to them, leaving no room for cycle error.
I’d like to suggest a lower speed limit, aggressive traffic calming measures and protected cycle lanes. I like your suggestions about bike parking and bus stop upgrading. Or I wonder if Portswood Road is even a candidate for shared space treatment?
There would be massive political and cost implications… I would also anticipate concerns about quick and easy entry to the supermarket car parks and emergency vehicle access.
