T&M Greens comment on A26 cycle route plans

18 December 2016

Tonbridge & Malling Green Party welcomes plans to improve the cycle route between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. We believe enhancements have the potential to increase the number of people cycling between the two towns, not just for leisure but as a regular and practical means of transport, with personal and public benefits in terms of congestion, air quality and health. We have a number of concerns about the detailed proposals, particularly that certain sections will have no provision for cyclists at all. It is essential that cycle routes are continuous – they are only as effective as their weakest link. If cyclists have to rejoin traffic before their destination or continually dismount or cross the carriageway, all but the most determined and experienced riders will be deterred.
