Disgraceful unloading practices by Tesco, East Road, Cambridge

Ever since Tesco opened their new shop on East Road, there has been poor unloading practice.

The company is unloading always from the front of the store with a large lorry which:

- Is stopped in the (advisory) cycle lane.
- The tail of the lorry is opened into the carriageway without a banksman, with the corner of it at the same height as a cyclist having to merge round the lorry - there is real potential for a head injury because of the relative invisibility of this
- Causing traffic to be reduced to one effective lane (or two, just squeezing through, if no large vehicles), causing delays for a half an hour period.

They have stopped using the zig-zag lines.
