Dangerous Nottingham Cycle Route To Be Made Safer
16 February 2016, 14:57
New warnings signs will be put up on a road in Nottingham - thought to be unsafe for cyclists.
There have been at least 90 accidents involving cyclists on the city's tram lines in the last year.
Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry called a meeting to discuss the dangers in roads like High Road in Beeston and says an immediate solution is needed.
“NET, Tramlink, Highways and the Police have agreed to an urgent review of all signage to keep the route safe for cyclists. They have promised new signs and clear markings for cyclists within two months” said Anna.
“The Police and Highways agree that the current layout is dangerous to cyclists. I am very pleased immediate action is being taken”.
More than 30 cyclists have contacted Anna after suffering serious injuries on High/ Chilwell Road.
A Nottingham City Council spokesman said:
“We had a positive meeting. We’ve agreed an ‘all-party’ review of the signs and lining to ensure that cyclists are fully aware of any hazards and we also agreed to an awareness campaign.”
