Super Highway Comments:
1. The wider format of the lanes is excellent.
2. The Blue is such an ugly unnatural colour for a ground surface and is painted in such a bitty way, breaks (the format of which is very inconsistent), and silly squares of the colour in the middle of the road with CS numbers, (I don’t know anyone who uses these when travelling), not aesthetic at all- it is associating cycling with making the environment ugly.
3. If we have to have blue then a single continuous band without all the other confusing squares and numbers would be much better.
4. Separating the cycle lane from road with a slightly raised band as in Belgium, Holland etc is of enormous benefit. A car going into the lane can physically feel it is entering where it should not be (as will its passengers hence causing embarrassment of wrong doing to the driver). Being just a slightly raised band it is cheap to do and does not affect road cleaning etc. This psychological effect is very effective.
