Is anyone familiar with the new cycle lanes that have been put in around Camden over the last couple of months? Some of them seem very poorly implemented, my current fave is the segregated lane on York way between agar grove and market road. What was previously a wide and fairly innocuous stretch is now a segragated bike lane through the bus stop, with parked cars on the right. The road is significantly narrowed which seems to have worsened the traffic going north.
It makes the right turn onto market road really dangerous as there is no space or time to pull out from the bike lane, across the line of parked cars and traffic which is mostly going straight on, and then onto the roundabout. If I take the road then I just get abuse from arseholes telling me to use the bike lane.
I'm all for improving cycling infrastructure but it's frustrating when it seems to make life worse for cyclists. Is there anywhere I can send some feedback, or perhaps gain a better understanding of the overall plans for the area?
