Wessex Connect

One of the reasons we are in favour of the Zetland road anti-bicycle facility is that it will discourage bicycles from using the A38 to and from town.

Yes, there may be a bike lane and bus lane most of whole way, but that just creates bus/bike conflict, as well as bike/parked car conflict.

Here on Stokes Croft, for example, this Wessex Connect Bus T875HGT has been forced to drive into the bike ASL and park here while the light is red. If bikes were encouraged to cycle here the inter-vehicle conflict could not only be dangerous, it could impact bus schedules.
