Extend the cycle lane down the south side of the road and build a bridge over the a899. Or make a pelican crossing next to the roundabout,, this roundabout is already lethal for cycling on.

90979Photo #90979The road is wide enough for potential cycle infrastructure. There is central hatching and several traffic islands which cause pinch points. Removal of these would free up space for on road cycle lane or shared use path on the north side. There may be opposition as the traffic island are likely to be considered as crossing places. There is probably more path buried.Road environment:
