Reigate Town Pop up cycle lane.

Postby hemo » 6 Jul 2020, 8:13pm

I noticed Friday one has appeared in Reigate Surrey, and temporarily reduces the carriage way on the one way system approaching from the south past the old Priory Junction to single file as one enters the town.
Though it causes queues/tail backs in to the town it does reduce the speed of the traffic a little making it I believe a little safer for all users. The lane is marked by the heavier larger Euro type barriers.

Affluent Reigate, it just won't do to be held up by a cyclist lane whilst driving ones Chelsea through the streets.
Reigate can be unbelievable at times, an old narrow market town with two lanes of traffic with some thinking it is a street circuit.
