but I wonder if theres more confusion here because whilst Ive not been to Notts since pre covid times, that road layout has so fundamentally changed there by the looks of it, I mean its not just theyve added some cycle lanes in, theres traffic now heading both ways on that road, and a turn into iirc the bit by the railway station is bus/cycle only which never used to be from that direction. So there should be like gigantic new road layout signs everywhere until people get really used to it as Im sure the bus driver has spent years driving around Nottingham, and yet this is a completely new experience for them trying to navigate the road, and add in navigate it with cyclists. It does seem a fairly obvious conflict point theyve created.eileithyia wrote: ↑22 Jun 2022, 10:11pmAm not reading through 4 pages and have only read first page... but the above is the new guidance in the Highway Code that was thoroughly discussed by oh so many people on social media.. certainly a professional driver such as a bus driver should have been updated on the new rules / guidance by their training officers.
Regardless of who is right or wrong (personally on the new guidelines the bus driver) I still wouldn't cross such a junction without double checking that no one is turning in.... keeping safe is my priority and not being run into by several tonnes of metal is something I attempt to avoid.
plus as I remember it that junction used to be used heavily by pedestrians, whats keeping them out from just gathering in the bike lanes waiting to cross ?
