Stretford Road - Cycle Lane vs Car Parking

On Stretford Road, between Northumberland Road and Henrietta Street/East Union Street, there is a set of parking bays on both sides of the road.

The Cycle lane is narrowed and run along the edge of the parking bays, putting anyone tempted to cycle within the lane into some considerable danger from drivers pulling out or opening their car door.

  1. I have a theory that the councils of the UK are obliged to provide a set percentage of cycle lanes and paths within their boundaries, and so long as that percentage is met (or exceeded a little) the actual design, siting or useability of these cycle lanes isn't important- as your previous posts have shown, particularly on the corner of Whitworth Street.

    I've lived in several parts of England and have had this theory borne out. Or perhaps I'm just an old cynic...
