58782Photo #58782The only excuse for this path is that there is an excellent off-road path running parallel not far from the road.
For people accessing properties on the road though, or those crossing it to get to the path, the road itself is extremely busy, with lots of HGVs, and is narrow and generally unattractive. The path is narrow (it would admittedly be very hard to find more space here), is obstructed all over the place, has no priority over side roads or direveways even though it is a main route into the city, and is badly marked/worn out. It's the same both sides of the road. Shall I go on?
