Work has started on the southbound bus and cycle lanes at the
gyratory, but plans for work on the northbound side are being reconsidered
following input from Bricycles and other members of the Cycle
The gyratory is a barrier to some cyclists
who consider it too dangerous to cycle around. It is a mess, but
interestingly there are few crashes there!
Consultants, Urban Initiatives, recently
engaged by the city council to look at ways of improving the
London and Lewes Road areas came up with a proposal to demolish
the gyratory including the Sainsbury’s supermarket there and
create a more people friendly environment. There is overwhelming
support for this to happen.
