2. Provide Cycle Contraflows on one way streets

Permit cycle contraflow on selected one-way streets in the town centre.2 This is to improve connectivity for local people, not part of the NCN 21 route along High Street and London Road.

  • Church Lane (southbound);
  • Cantelupe Road (northbound);
  • Hermitage Lane (northbound).

How can this be achieved? Very simply, by a safety assessment, taking account of vehicle use of the streets. The most appropriate road markings (if required) are applied together with “Except Cycles” signs on No Entry signposts.
