Dynamo are concerned about the current level of cycling infrastructure provision on the A6 corridor between Galgate and Lancaster city centre, including one of Lancaster’s major commutes – the journey between the city centre and Lancaster University. We therefore wrote tothe County Councillors whose divisions include the A6 between the city centre and Lancaster University to seek “support for the installation of good quality cycle lanes” on this route. More info is available here.
Cllr Chris Coates of Lancaster Central has provided the following response to our A6 letter:
Being an occasional cyclist along this route, when I have reason to go to the University, I would very much support the creation of cycle lanes along the A6. The current ‘back-street-routes’ I find are hard to follow and easy to miss a turn and end up having to make up your own route. So a clear safe & direct route along the A6 would be a big improvement not just in access to the University but also for residents along the route in Scotforth.
I would be happy to put forward this as a councillor priority to the environment directorate when they are next reviewing the local priorities.
Cllr Chris Coates
