103593Photo #103593Pinch Point

I had a very nasty experience riding along here sometime around the year 2009.

Approaching the pinch point I decided to take the lane to make sure the lorry behind me was not going to be sharing the road space with me. The lorry driver carried on anyway and issued a prolonged blast of the horn, rather than braking. Terrifying.

103513Photo #103513Coleridge Road - in glare of harsh winter light

The residents parking scheme (shown by the sign at left) is supposed to have come into force on 7 Nov but is shown with a blue tape diagonally across the sign suggesting it is not ready yet. Many vehicles are still parking across the footway like here rather than in the bay shown on the right.

Additionally notice the smooth tarmac on the left of the car where the footway is prepared with a dropped kerb - and the garden looks like it might be converted into a driveway - like is happening to many other footways along here.

103478Photo #103478It's really great to have new cycle parking in Romsey, but the workmanship on the installation is rather disappointing.

The racks and bollards have been left covered with ugly dirt smears - which look to me like concrete dust.
The ground too has also been left rather badly covered with the dried concrete powder. It all feels very unloved.

All that was needed I think was a good hose down, sweeping with a good stiff brush and wiping the bollards and racks with a damp cloth.

103410Photo #103410Argyle Street with new street cycle parking.

Measurements from left to right accurate to 5cm:

Left footway: 180cm
Cycle lane: 165cm
Carriageway between offside edge of white line and bollard: 265cm
Offside edge of bollard to right kerb: 150cm
Right footway: 165cm

Effective carriageway width by the racks: 165+265 = 430cm.

The spacing between racks is roughly 1 metre but varies by 10cm.

The bollard at the far end is 10.5 metres from the Mill Road carriageway (i.e. where the gutter is).

The term 'offside' above should be interpreted as meaning the side nearest the middle of the road.
