    Gia suggests: take away the one-way system around Harrogate – West Park/Station Parade/York Place. It is a legacy of a half-finished road scheme from the 1960s. Reintroduce two-way traffic.

    Protected cycle lane on Victoria Avenue & Station Parade to continue the route into town on Otley Road & Beech Grove.

    Protected bike lanes either side of West Park instead of street parking, as part of a route into town on Leeds Road from Pannal.

    East Parade. This is an important cycle route for going to Asda.

    The cycle lane uphill is a bodge-job and finishes in ‘homemade’ and unsatisfactory arrangements at the Odeon roundabout.

    Downhill, there’s just one short section of painted advisory cycle lane which gives no protection, and even makes it more dangerous for people on bikes by putting them in the wrong road position (depending on where they are going at the junction).
