A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metre could easily have been taken off the road, which at this point is buses, taxis and cycles only, with no regular bus routes now passing through.

Location: , Brockenhurst (England, United Kingdom)

Taken 23/08/17: I uploaded a similar snap back in 2014, but as the vehicles is still at Brock', here is an up to date view.
Built by Pressed Steel in 1959, this ex-BR Mark One General Utility Van (GUV) has been used by Country Lanes Cycle Hire at Brockenhurst for a number of years. The van used to look quite smart, but is starting to look quite tatty now and I'm not sure how actively it is used at present; the firm now having newish premises towards the PW yard.
