Its an expensive play area for the mamils of Kingston they said.
No, everyday people with bikes will use it, we said.
Its not finished but people are using the Portsmouth Rd cycle lane. Who would have thought!
Turns out the the most populous mamil is homo sapiens.
Portsmouth Rd is being built in 3 phases. Phase 1 (Palace Rd to north of Brighton Rd) has been constructed but we understand can not be officially opened until certain signs which are on order have been installed. Phase 2 High St to Palace Rd) is under construction now (May 2016) and will be completed this Summer. The last Phase 3 (south past Brighton Rd) should, we’re told, be built by the end of 2016.
We look forward to all types of rider enjoying the completed, almost 1 mile long, fully protected cycleway.
Congratulations to the Royal Borough of Kingston for being nominated for Portsmouth Rd in the best Borough Infrastructure Scheme category at the London Cycling Awards;
Sadly runners up this year to Camden’s worthy winner in Tavistock Place but we’re in august company with joint second Waltham Forest’s Lea Bridge Rd. Let’s make Portsmouth Road the benchmark, improve and win next year RBK !
