This short and narrow cycle lane, nicely surfaced in red tarmac, appeared recently in Short Street. It has mystified many cyclists. In fact, this lane marks the end of a new pavement cycleway from Maid’s Causeway, and it is meant to help cyclists merge back onto the road. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make the build-out at the zebra crossing any easier to pass. (See Newsletter 39 for a summary of these changes.)
