The part of road to the left of the white line comes to a sudden end. This is dangerous to cyclists who are suddenly forced into the main carriageway. It would be more appropriate to gradually bring the edge in towards the road rather than an abrupt end point. I raise this as an incident occurred a few days ago
We have visited the site to review the current layout. This layout at the end of the hard strip has been in place for over 20 years and we have no records of any incidents occurring here. The edge of the carriageway is clearly marked by a continuous white line which guides all users past the end of the kerb line. We appreciate that cyclists sometimes opt to utilise hard strips to further distance themselves from vehicles. On this section of road, a cyclist should be aware of a change, due to the presence of a dashed line across the private access road and the verge marker posts. We have added an additional marker post that can be seen for some distance in advance.
State changed to: No further action
