  • A Hazard Rich Environment

    Created by Sam Saunders // 0 threads

    A recent Bristol Cycling Campaign ride returned to Bristol from Nailsea using the Festival Way.
    Daylight was fading & they were already using front & rear cycle lights (which would be "side on" to approaching traffic whilst crossing B3128).
    The final North Somerset stretch after Long Ashton crosses the B3128 to use the off-road route past the Dovecote.

    Concern was raised about the safety of this crossing to the central island due to:-

    traffic approaching at speed on a bend - potentially endangering "Bristol bound" cyclists
    Poor site line - "Bristol bound" cyclists view of approaching fast traffic is obstructed by both the bend & by vegetation
    low cycle capacity at the central island (for a Festival Way route potentially with significant numbers "stranded" on the island or left waiting to cross to it compounding the dangers of poor sight line).

    One of our concerned participating cyclists on that ride is the Chair of Bristol Civic Society.

    This location was previously raised in my snagging email of 12 April 2013 14:11 headed "Re: 24 April Cycle Forum reminder and item for discussion"
    .
    " 1.1.2 NCN 33 crossing B3128
    Vehicles approaching from the SE have a "cycle crossing" sign but will tree growth soon obstruct drivers vision when approaching?
    Does the central island have enough capacity for peak numbers crossing?"

  • Ambiguous Junction For Cycle Path at Clift House Road

    Created by Sam Saunders // 1 thread

    Twice in recent days I have encountered ambiguity over right of way when cycling westward from the shared foot/cycle path on Clift House Road, across an entrance road and onto the new continuation path towards Ashton Avenue Bridge. Four lanes of merging traffic are travelling eastbound and occasionally one vehicle will turn off the main road into the access road. While I might assume that having started to cross this road I have right of way over a vehicle turning into it, the road markings and the sheer size of the junction make it unclear as to what ought to happen. It might be that the left turning traffic should have to negotiate a much more obvious turning, rather than the wide sweep that allows the turn to be made at full speed.
