Bucks CC have decided that they are going to make Lower Road into a temporary cycle route,  for it's complete length from Market Place right through, to include the far side beyond Kingsway.
There will be no through traffic, only access for residents, and there will be planters placed in the road to restrict access.

Going to be interesting to see how temporary this is?

I'm all for the new parking restrictions and money being spent on a permanrnt solution but I really feel £515,000 on TEMPORARY road schemes are a massive white elephant. I also can't believe that this is being rushed through when it has taken years to get a parking scheme in place and some yellow lines. You really couldn't make it up!

I wondered how long the madness of mainly empty cycle lanes forced onto main thoroughfares in London would reach here.

Seems I have my answer.

How will this affect all the businesses there?

Passing trade, deliveries ect?

Not to mention the vets.

As long as the two wheeled minority who pay zero in road tax are looked after.

More to the point to use the money to build a car park off Lower Road near the 413 for the workers to use. All the cycle bit will do is move parking problems elsewhere in the village and residents will, have to fight cyclists to get to their houses.

Weekends are a bit like rainbows. They look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

They have put the barriers and signs up at the Village end of Lower Road.

I witnessed about an hour ago total chaos with cars, vans and lorries all getting caught out and forced to do u turns, reversing back ect, some even went left up over the flyover towards the Heights!  That will please them😉🤭

Oh well, the dozen or so hourly cyclists will be happy!

4 way traffic lights on the Greyhound roundabout now too for roadworks!

Still, the odd cyclist permitted to use Lower Road won't be affected, that's the main thing.Clap

Taking their time removing the plant boxes.

Restrictions still in place.

PS.
I'm still yet to see a cyclist take advantage of this designated closure.
