Where did that come from? I don't perceive it to be dangerous, but I know that others do and it stops them riding and decades of advertising-based encouragement has not changed that perception. If you have to invent views for me, then your argument is probably too weak to survive.
Also, do you really think that the likes of making the B1359 max 40 mph, removing the centre line and marking wide advisory cycle lanes wouldn't reduce danger at all? Or they could create a cycleway with kerbs or new tarmac but LCC would probably stuff it up and put it on the south side across the industrial entrances - and make it lumpy to boot!
The B1359 is fine as it is. There's not a vast amount of traffic using it and the vast majority consists of motor vehicle so why make it worse for them?
Even if you don't perceive cycling to be dangerous you certainly give the impression by your remarks here and in other posts.
