The busway is an excellent facility for walking and cycling, as it is off-road, direct, smooth and wide. The Science Park has therefore made it as difficult as possible to use this facility with the potential to really boost active travel, by having a narrow entrance and banning cycling. Not all people who cycle can easily dismount: some use cycling as a mobility aid, others will be cycling with large bikes carrying cargo or children which are hard to push and maneuver on foot. There is no dropped or flush kerb, so as well as cycling, this is a barrier to people with prams and wheelchairs. The hedge makes visibility dangerously poor at the junction with the road. There is plenty of space here to have a wider route with good visibility: instead they have put up a baffling number of no cycling signs, which do little to fix the problems.
