Something interesting has been happening quietly in the town in the last few months. Bit by bit, a long-established part of the transport network has been dismantled.
CTC was delighted to be involved with Essex County Council, whose key officer in the county town of Chelmsford, now a city, aimed to transform some of the obstacles that cyclists complain about on their journeys.
ECC identified a number of sites where physical barriers had been in place for generations. Nobody could remember quite why they had been installed and nobody could see a really good reason to have them, but it was far harder to find a way of removing them than might appear.
