"The simple provision of a dedicated cycle lane would have made the whole area safer for everyone. The council has neglected to include this in the redevelopment and this just illustrates their lack of vision and their total disregard for the needs of cyclists. It was a wonderful opportunity to have a safe route for cyclists incorporated into the development, but the result is that cyclists have to negotiate a busy and dangerous area. Aberystwyth’s ‘transport gateway’ has become a disincentive to people to use sustainable forms of transport." [Cambrian News]Missed opportunity.
Let's campaign to try and improve at least a few areas, since the Council can't be relied on to do that. There is a proposal to green Aberystwyth's approach road - see this mention in the GAG news page, and watch the video below.
That would be a huge improvement on the current situation!
