134800Photo #134800Nasty crossing over a busy road by a roundabout that has poor visibility of cars coming off it. Requires a tight turn that I imagine is difficult for trikes, cargo bikes and trailers. Once over the road, the cycle path disappears abruptly and you have to do an odd bit of manoeuvring to join the road, again at a poor junction.Cycleway:

134795Photo #134795The pavement along the whole length of East Street is far too narrow to allow social distancing, and there is building work that is causing an additional reduction in pavement space. There is no cycle lane provision. It's a busy road with cars and buses, and a number of cars are driving too fast. This means it is risky to walk in the road to avoid people. Cyclists are also not separated from cars. There are lots of cars parked along one section of the road. There are a number of cut throughs from East Street which lead to the town centre, and there is a large car park so it is busy with pedestrian traffic into town.
Therefore, how about turning East Street into a one way street. Consideration would have to be given to how the bus route could be adapted to enable a one way street. Other streets are one way nearby, so there is a precedent. In addition, this road was closed recently for building works, a full bus diversion was put in place then. Turning this into a one way street would allow pavements to be widened and a 2 way cycle lane to be put in place. The speed limit should also be enforced, and potentially reduced to safeguard pedestrians and cyclists.

109935Photo #109935Signpost on the "Thicket Path" between St Ives and Houghton, stating "considerate cycling welcomed". This confirms that cycling is permitted despite the absence of the usual "shared-use cycle/footway" signs.

See #109934 for a wider view.

Location is approximate: this sign is next to the skittle bollards about mid-way between St Ives and Houghton.
