140912Photo #140912The provision for pedestrians and cyclists wishing to access the coastal path is appalling in this location. The pavement is less than 1m wide and vehicles regularly pass by at 60mph. Walking along here with young children is a frightening experience. There is a shared use path further along (closer to the A55) and a shared use path between the A5/B5420 junction and Cemetery Road. Money has been spent recently to improve the latter. However, there is nothing apart from this dangerously narrow path connecting the two.Cycleway:

18196Photo #18196How do you know you are on the National Cycle Network ?

You are signed straight up a steep hill only to come down it again, where the road disappears, replaced by an overgrown track barely one foot wide ( #18195 ), then barriers, a dismount sign and an unnecessary detour.

Why was this bridge sited so far from the path that it supposedly serves ? More to the point, why wasn't the cycle route simply taken down the now bypassed road ?

Why are the designers of these ridiculous "farcilities" so determined that people should not be able to cycle on them ?
