Southampton ‘Dutch-Style’ cycle junction system prompts debate

Southampton Council has, with best intentions, introduced a new ‘cycle-friendly' junction. However many cyclists, including a local cycle campaign group, aren't so sure.
Southampton Crossroads

CTC member Richard Haynes contacted CTC's Campaigns Team to highlight a recently-built and so called ‘cycle-friendly' junction that links the Saltmarsh Road with the A3025, west of the Itchen Bridge in Southampton. According to Richard, it isn’t all it's cracked up to be. Local cyclists are disappointed as many attempts were made by the Southampton Cycling Campaign (SCC) to point out the flaws.

Dorset Cyclists’ Network - a model for nationwide campaigning

Dorset Cycling Network is concerned with bringing about change for cyclists by enabling individuals and institutions within Dorset to network, which yields an attractive model to deliver nationwide county collaboration.

Dorset Cyclists’ Network (DCN), which was founded in 1992, was designed to provide some cohesion between 11 South West towns, including Bournemouth and Poole, to campaign for cyclists’ needs, alongside CTC. It provides a very attractive example of how effectively multiple local authorities and key players can be lobbied when groups from smaller areas within a single county work in collaboration with one another to raise the profile of cycling across the county.
