This borders on insanity!

In these financial times to waste taxpayers money on removing a cycle lane that is already buillt beggars belief.

So some local residents in Hove object. So what! We all have to put up with things we don't like. I hate the parking metres in my road but Ihave to live with them!

I use this cycle lane and there's nothing wrong with it. There are two sets of traffic lights that both slow cars and cycles down when they are on red. There is nothing wrong with the visibility. If you keep your eyes open the lane is perfectly safe and certainly much safer than riding on the road.

I just hope the cycling fraternity remember this in May during the local elections!
