  • Eastbound Flambards Way Cycle Path

    Anon // 1 thread

    The High Street only permits cycling in one direction (westbound), and it appears unlikely we will get permission to cycle against the flow traffic down the High Street. Instead an eastbound only cycle path along Flambards Way would alleviate the need for a High Street contraflow. This could easily be achieved if all the brickwork down the side of Flambard Way was removed, and it wouldn't restrict the amount of space for cars.

  • Contra-flow cycling on Godalming High Street

    Created by Chris Peck // 1 thread

    A long, tortuous issue, where no progress has been made, despite large amounts of effort. Godalming High Street was recommended for adopting as a trial two-way working for cyclists in 2001, thanks to Alec McCalden's excellent presentation to the Planning Inspector at the time.

    However, the trial was never carried out. Cyclists continue to use the street in both directions, as there are plenty of ways to get out of the way of oncoming cars.

    The City of London has introduced dozens of contra-flow cycling schemes on narrow streets and lanes across the City. A third of all the cyclists are now using the contraflow. There has been 1 cycle crash three years post-introduction (there were 2 in the three years before). See here for more details: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/transport-institute/pdfs/Cheung_slides.pdf
