Trees overhanging shared use pavement have shed masses of slippery leaves.

Now that Blackberry Hill / Broomhill has been narrowed to enable widening of the pavement on the East side, cyclists have no choice but to use the new shared path.

Back in the summer I was having to duck to get under the trees, now that autumn is here there are lots of slippery leaves building up - with smooth pavement and cambers, this is somewhat worrying, so periodic sweeping is surely required ?

  • People on bikes can still use the road if they wish, and if the shared path is covered in leaves, it would make good sense to

  • Did you miss the bit where I said the road had been narrowed ? Perhaps you would care to demonstrate.? To be honest, I had every intention of not using it - if only on account of the nightmarish tiger crossing.

  • Show me the bit where I said that the width of the road makes any difference. Still stands : Cyclists can use the road if they wish to.

  • OK previous commenter - it makes a difference because cyclists get cold if they have to wait in a traffic queue - some are clipped to their pedals. Cars belt up the hill at alarming speed and with traffic islands removed, filtering past traffic is scary.
