So why have Councillors in Corbridge celebrated removing much needed cycle lanes

Sadly, there are influential people in Corbridge who successfully campaigned to have the remaining Advisory Cycle Lane on Newcastle Road east of Corbridge removed and the centre line reinstated to return the road to being vehicle dominant to the detriment of cyclists’ safety. And then boasted about it. The message this gives out from Corbridge is that the safety of vulnerable road users should not be considered over the convenience and habits of those local car drivers who don’t understand how cycle lanes work. At least the inconsiderate road-side parking close to Corbridge has been removed which put cyclists at extra risk and pushed eastbound vehicles into the centre of the road.

    Sadly another example of certain people to maintain the status quo – oblivious to the danger posed to anyone else or the many , many advantages cycling has for the majority.
