Craven councillor backs ‘safer for cyclists’ roads initiative
9:00am Wednesday 9th April 2014 in News
A ward councillor has said he would be supporting a scheme to improve a busy road to make it safer for cyclists.
He said if the necessary money is earmarked, it could mean new road markings and additional signage. He added that cyclists have previously been killed or seriously injured on this road.
“It would be good if this can be implemented, especially in the year that the Tour de France is coming,” he said. “The focus is also on casualty reduction because the new integrated national authority that allocates money to be spent wants 70 per cent of all road projects to focus on cutting numbers of casualties.”
