A shared use path!

3 Dec

OK, I get it, so this is what is meant by the term ‘shared use path’, after all it would be so unfair if only pedestrians and cyclists were allowed them and motorists had to find somewhere else to park. And that grass; is that what Philip Hammond meant when he said that the government would ‘sweat our transport assets to get value for the taxpayer’?

Check out this Google Maps aerial view of the area in Bristol where the video was taken. Thank you SteveL for the tip off to the location (see comments section below).

    Guessed where that road was within 30s. It’s Bristol; Cribb’s causeway, with a rugby ground on the left. All the cars are parked there for the rugby match. Someone should complain to the rugby team.

    Extraordinary, I bet all those motorists think they are being really nice, not blocking the road, leaving such large amounts of space for cyclists. They are ruining the grassed areas, blocking the path, real selfish behaviour. This type of parking just makes me so angry.

    Here’s another ‘shared use’ cyclepath and pavement in south Bristol:

    I’m just waiting for the semi-permanent burger van to appear to feed the hungry shoppers.

      I love the bollards at either end to stop motorists driving along it, what’s really needed is bollards along the side to stop motorists driving ON to it. Incredible.
