Question 17 - we asked:

The pavement on the western side of Rustat Road stops before the entrance to the cycle bridge. Are you willing to press for a continuous pavement along this side of Rustat Road to enable pedestrians to walk past the entrance to the cycle bridge without having to walk in the cycle lane?

We asked this question only in Coleridge.

2 of the 5 candidates (40%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Christopher John HOWELL
(Conservative Party)

Yes, I've always thought this lack of pavement was a bit bizarre, although I don't know what the issues are stopping the pavement being extended, and it will still require pedestrians to cross the cycle lane even if pedestrians are no longer encouraged to walk along the cycle lane.

(Labour Party)

Yes, in principle if it is practicable and safe to do it.
