Partly marked cycle lane does not comply with standards

A white line for a cycle lane has recently been painted on Meadowhead just south of the Abbey Lane junction. Most (if not all) of the lane as currently painted obviously does not comply with the 1.5 metre minimum width specified by the DfT standards. This lane needs to painted to the correct width or removed, because substandard "gutter lanes" are more dangerous to cyclists than the absence of lanes. Please be reminded that a Council representative promised the Cycle Forum on 19 March 2013 that the Council would not paint any more substandard cycle lanes.

It looks like the Council has no intention of fixing this problem. They have painted the red infill on this piece of dangerous "infrastructure" and are encouraging drivers to violate Highway Code rules 163 and 167.
