Dangerous proposed cycle track

Reported in the Road and Pavement Issues category anonymously at 16:00, Wednesday 26 June 2019

Sent to Bromley Council 4 minutes later

Can someone please explain these tarmac tracks that are appearing across the pavements at the junction of Station Road, Ravenswood Crescent, Beckenham Road, Red Lodge Road by the West Wickham sports centre? If they are cycle tracks, then I would like to see your risk assessment report. These tracks were not in the original plans and if they stay as they are, will be a hazard to all. Has the HSE seen the actual works? These works have been going on for over 4months, which is the timescale given in February.

  • The surface of these cycle tracks was not my concern. My issue is the fact that you have now encouraged cyclists to skip the traffic lights and cycle ACROSS pedestrian walkways. This looks to be a very dangerous situation. Please can I have access to your risk assessment. I assume HSE are aware of this planning.

  • The cycle track is currently laid with black tarmac and is safe. Our contractor will be undertaking permanent reinstatement next week in green colour to show the difference between the paving blocks and cycle tracks.Once all the works completed safety audit will be undertaken.
