Update on St Peter’s Road, Lancaster

After consultation, it looks as if Lancashire County Council have decided against blocking up the end of St Peter’s Road where it joins Moor Lane.  Their latest plan is to extend the kerb to allow for greater visibility, which Dynamo objects to on the grounds that it narrows the carriageway and forces cyclists further into the road.

As an aside, it was interesting to note from the crash descriptions that the cyclists in greatest danger are those going straight down Moor Lane and over the canal bridge – and that from cars turning into or out of St Peter’s Road.
