Barriers to cycling must be removed!

2020-01-27 ETS committee (2)We’ve told Brighton and Hove City Council that the gates appearing in Brighton must be removed and a better solution applied that doesn’t prevent cycling. 

Our Campaigns Officer made the case at the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in January.

Our deputation with text and photos is here.

See the webcast. The relevant bit starts at 0:24:00.

The gate below is at the junction of Natal Road and Dewe Road near the University of Brighton’s campus on the Lewes Road. It is permanently locked. No consultation was carried out on its placement. Not good enough!
