City Centre Lib Dem Campaigner has called on the Council to make sure that cycle lanes are gritting during bad weather. Following complaints from local residents, he has contacted the Council to request the key cycle routes are also gritted in snow and icy weather, along with key roads, to ensure they are usable.
John is a keen cyclist himself, and commented, “The City Council has a stated aim of encouraging fewer people to use their car when travelling into the city centre, but in the recent bad weather, many cycle lanes were impassable, because the Council had failed to grit them. I hope that they change their programme and make sure that cycle lanes can continue to be used on key routes into and around the city centre”.Leave a comment
