(a) Suggested incremental improvements

  • Widen cycle lane and provide light segregation via bollards, temporary kerbs etc
  • Upgrade to permanent segregated cycle track when funding permits. Ensure wide buffer between cycle track and motor traffic – reallocate road space of necessary

(b) what kind of political and bureaucratic opposition this improvement would likely encounter:

  • Potential reallocating of road space would likely encounter opposition from many camps including members of the public, local politicians, car lobby groups etc
  • Funding a permanent cycle facility might encounter opposition also if local officials are car centric or if resources are tight
