Ordinary weekday – no resident using these parking bays.
Ordinary weekday – no resident using these parking bays either.
Usual, heavy traffic up Victoria Park Road.
Cyclists are permitted the use of this shared use path – an admission that no one wants to share with drivers and that it’s impossible to get around here on-road Victoria Park is closed.
This is day time and a bus has just gone. As you can imagine, trying to cycle past this bus stop when anyone is waiting is impossible. Ample road-space though.
Weekday morning – residents have no use for this parking space – could fit in a generous segregated track in both directions, without harming bus reliability or pedestrians.
Unfortunately, occasional cars parked in the parking bays mean that cyclists must merge with the fast moving, non-stop traffic.
Why is all this space wasted when residents don’t need it?
Another example why no one wants to share the road along Victoria Park Road – even if a cyclist used the empty parking bays, the zebra crossing forces them into passing (often speeding) drivers’ paths.
