A section of footway on Newmarket Road was obstructed whilst works for the Coral Park redevelopment were carried out. As a result, the cycle lane was coned off for pedestrians to use, and the remaining part of the bus lane was coned off for use by cyclists. It’s good to see that the builders have considered the needs of cyclists here, even though the line of cones along the edge of the bus lane probably wasn’t strictly necessary. The needs of cyclists should always be catered for when building work takes place on the highway, especially if it means reduced lane widths.
