Abstract:

A 1.5M wide, 400M long, mandatory contra-flow cycle lane was opened in June 1980 on Downing Street/Pembroke Street, a one-way eastbound road near the centre of Cambridge. This was the second contra-flow cycle lane to be introduced in the UK, the first being in Peterborough. This report describes the background to the scheme, its design and implementation, and the legal aspects associated with its provision. It also discusses the results of the monitoring studies. Although the lane is well used (up to 1924 cyclists between 0700 and 1900) and is considered to be successful, there are some operational difficulties associated with the junctions at its extremities and these are partly attributable to introduction of the scheme.
