CYCLISTS in CLOUD CUCKOOLAND?
How does it come about that the pop-up cycle lane on Gosforth High Street Newcastle was so badly planned that not even cyclists want to use it? Still less does it tempt any motorist to change from car to a bike?
The project manager said of this cycle lane when that the City Council approved it a few years ago “We are tasked with growing cycling in the city to a significant proportion of all trips under five miles. On numbers this could easily mean that to be successful we will need to see up to 3,000 cyclists a day using this corridor to comply with 20% of all trips under five miles.”
A professional survey by local objectors at the time revealed that only about 70 cyclists a day use the High Street, some counting twice on a return journey.
