Question 5 - we asked:

Do you believe that Dutch-quality cycle provision, with cycle tracks that are separate both from pedestrians and motor traffic and that have priority over side roads, should a) be included within all new traffic schemes and b) be considered and consulted on for all modifications to existing schemes?

We asked this question:

4 of the 4 candidates (100%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Eric William BARRETT-PAYTON
(Conservative Party)

Yes

Oliver Charles Mathew PERKINS
(Green Party)

Yes. Unequivocally.

Peter ROBERTS
(Labour Party)

Yes but the width of some City roads may be a constraint.

Marcus John Gilbert STREETS
(Liberal Democrat)

I lived in Apeldoorn for 18 months and the cycle provisions there do make it very easy for cyclists. But even in the Netherlands not all roads have separate cycle paths.

I would certainly press for all new through roads to have good provision for cyclists and pedestrians.
