The road is a standard crossroads, it has 6 lanes in the north south direction and 3 lanes in the east west direction. Cycle facilities consist of in carriageway lanes and advance stop lines.
Is this really the best we can do for cycling?
(I’ve highlighted the on carriageway lanes in red below, the original is here)
The cycle lane design reminds me of another road in Sheffield, the new Inner Ring Road which seems to encourage drivers to cut up people in the cycle path to access the slip road.
Surely within carriageway cycle lanes like these can’t be recommended in high traffic urban dual carriageways? Can they?
I much prefer this design from The Netherlands (borrowed from A View From The Cycle Path) which provides separation (I have flipped the photograph).
