It's Red Routes , but as we know they run across several Boroughs. I do know that Dr Leon Mannings is now in discussion with Westminster Council to get them to trial it where the routes run into their territory.backofbeyond wrote:It's the "most" bit that's caught my eye. I'm not sure, not having read the article, exactly what's included and what's not but it would make me wary about using them if I'm ok on this stretch of road but liable for a fine 200yds later when I've crossed some invisible boundary and missed the postage stamp sized sign changing the rules as I was trying to avoid being taken out by a taxi doing a U turn at the time. If I ride 10ft to the right in a normal lane I'd be ok. I live close to London but not in it so while I do ride through the city frequently I don't know anywhere well enough to know which bit of bus lane is ok and which is off limits. Presumably buses don't have this problem.Marco46 wrote:Happy Days
Just read in MCN today, that motorcycles will be allowed in most London bus lanes for the foreseeable future. After months and maybe years for surveys (at a cost to us, of course), they've finally seen sense.
Good Start To The New Year I Say
Up in Derby we are now starting a campaign, using the stats from this win as ammo, to get all local bus lanes with bike access. We currently have a similarly confusing mix where you have access to a lane on a road but not on all sections of it.
