It is good to know that American city planners aren’t the only ones striping really dangerous and dysfunctional bike lanes.
Merely putting blue paint on low quality infrastructure will not result in a boom in cycling. The majority need cycling to both feel safe and be convenient before they will take part.
The entire blog post is well worth reading as many of the problems cited apply to sucky bike plans in the US too.
Extremely substandard width bike lanes, with no buffer from traffic, even though the roadway is plenty wide enough. London planners are preserving existing automobile LOS rather than provide world-class cycle facilities.
Oh my. Bike path routed through bus stop, with bollards in the bike lane.
