Question 6 - we asked:

The Haling Way / Penny Ferry path is part of a national cycle route. Its entranceway is currently being remodelled, at considerable cost. We believe that a diagonal entrance into the path should have been created, rather than the current ‘wiggle’ round a blind corner and use of the pavement. This has not been done because it would involve removal of a few more car parking spaces. Do you feel that this cycle route should have a proper entrance for cyclists, even if it means the loss of three or four parking spaces?

We asked this question:

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

Susannah KERR
(Liberal Democrat)

I agree that the Haling Way/Penny Ferry path area could have been designed with a diagonal entrance, and that this would have been more convenient for cyclists. I am happy, however, with the overall result of the remodelling, especially the provision of cycling parking. I would like to see future projects progress with consultation with and input from groups such as the Cambridge Cycling Campaign, so that the needs of cyclists are considered from the outset.

Peter BURKINSHAW
(UK Independence Party)

No
