  • Addenbrooke's roundabout - fundamental redesign

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    This is a hostile roundabout. It has been fiddled around with over the years, to add advisory cycle lanes, lights, pedestrian crossings, etc.

    The area needs a fundamental redesign, to replace the roundabout probably with a protected intersection design.

    It is outrageous that a health site such as Addenbrooke's has such an unsafe and anti-cycling junction as its main entrance.

  • Four Lamps roundabout

    Created by Matthew // 2 threads

    The Four Lamps roundabout at the junction of Victoria Avenue, Jesus Lane, Maid's Causeway, Short Street and King Street was built when traffic flows were anticipated to be much higher than they actually are today.

  • Barnwell / Wadloes / Newmarket "McDonald's" roundabout

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Generally poor quality roundabout with some highly unusual, so-called cycling 'infrastructure' that seems to have been added over the years, and approximately zero walking infrastructure.

    This one comes up every so often but I was not able to identify an existing issue focused on this roundabout specifically.

  • Cycle crossing on Barton Road roundabout

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 2 threads

    I am writing to point your attention to a "danger spot" on the Barton Road cycle route.

    I and many others cycle this route every day and really appreciate how safe it is. However, there have been a number of near accidents at the sliproad from the M11 southbound onto the Barton roundabout. The problem is that the cycle path means that all cyclists must cross the road leading onto the roundabout. This is fine when the traffic is not busy. However, during rush hour the left lane going onto the roundabout is always queued up. This means that, to cross the the road, a cyclist needs to wait for a car to let them out. However, the problem lies with the right lane going onto the roundabout. If there is a queue in the left lane, you are unable to see into the right lane and so quite a few cyclists are nearly knocked off at this point

    The problem is that:

    a. The right lane is too short and so cyclists are unable to get out of the way in time if a car does not does turn onto it. It seems to me that there shouldn't be a right lane as it's too short to be of any use and poses more of a danger to cyclists.

    b. Cars tends to (understandably) be going quite fast as they've just come off the M11 and also are usually looking onto the roundabout rather than the road in front of them. This has meant that I've seen lots of cars having to break very heavily having only seen a bike crossing in front of them at the very last minute.

    I, and the other cyclists that routinely use this otherwise very safe route, would hugely appreciate it if this problem could be looked at.
