Keynsham is trying something rather new and you should visit it by bike if you can.
There are issues with it, for example they have put the contraflow next to the carriageway and used planters to protect the footpath from people cycling. Around Gregg’s this causes problems as drivers just park up on the double yellow and force other drivers into the cycle contraflow.
I have raised and discussed issues here, BUT the real question is, is the new scheme better than what was previously there? I think it works a lot better for people walking and cycling and creates a better less traffic filled High Street but without YOUR support this scheme will be scrapped and reverted back.
Go try it out. Email your support for the scheme to firstname.lastname@example.org otherwise we lose it. Don’t just read this and ignore it. Email now or lose one of the better schemes we’ve seen from BaNES for some time.
