168442Photo #168442Rush hour congestion on New Street, Cambridge.

The motor vehicle storage on both sides of this street make it difficult for cycles to pass the queueing traffic in either direction.

Note: this section of the street is two-way for all traffic. At the end of the street there is a no entry with a cycle lane bypass.

Well it was unusual to me and my co-rider: a photomap editor says: "when you say 'unusual feature', it's a perfectly normal layby for emergency vehicles and large loads - designed for drainage and to not attract regular drivers to pull over there."

According to that page:

Appeal following fatal crash on A710 near Southwick, Dumfries

Police Scotland is appealing for witnesses after a fatal crash near Dumfries.

The incident happened at around 1.05pm on Sunday, 11 April, 2021 on the A710 near Southwick.

A white Peugeot van travelling west was involved in a crash with a cyclist riding a black Trek bicycle which was heading east at Southwick Bridge.

Emergency services attended and 44-year-old Helen Renton from Dumfries was pronounced dead at the scene. Her next of kin has been informed.

The driver and passenger from the van were both uninjured.

The road was closed for approximately 9 hours for collision investigations to be carried out at the scene.

Sergeant Leigh McCulloch from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit based in Lockerbie said:

“Tragically as a result of this crash the cyclist has lost her life and our thoughts at this time are with her family and friends.

“Several people stopped to help at the scene and our inquiries continue to establish what happened. I’d ask anyone who saw the crash to get in touch with officers as a priority to help our investigation.

“I’d ask anyone who was recording with dash cam on the A710 who may have captured either the van or bicycle prior to the crash, to check their systems and provide officers with any relevant footage as soon as possible.”

Those with information should report this to Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 1688 of 11 April 2021.
