Liverpool City Council has a proposal for a temporary cycle route on West Derby Road, to replace the one previously removed.
Closing date for comments Friday 7th January 2022
The consultation is badly designed, with only the options of either agreeing with the plan or disagreeing with it.
The design for crossing Sheil Road creates dangerous condition for cyclists.
Cyclists join West Derby Road on a cycle lane segregated with wands and into a bike box at the traffic lights.
The width if the cycle lane is not marked, it’s impossible to know if it will be a safe and useable width.
Cyclists are now to the left side of left-turning motor vehicles with obvious potential conflicts. A cyclist carrying straight on is in danger of being hit by a left-turning motor vehicle.
Across the other side of the junction a segregated lane is marked as 1.25m wide, which is below the standard for cycling next to fast moving motor vehicles.
The junction needs dedicated traffic lights for cyclists and a cycle lane of 2m width.
As it stands, the only response to this consultation is to disagree with the creation of this cycle route.
