    I felt confused about the one-way for motor traffic proposals when I first looked at this so waited in case someone else commented or clarification came.

    Surely, if Cold Bath Road became one-way Southbound, then for Harlow Moor Drive, Valley Drive to form a return loop it would have to be one-way Northwards – but it is described as Westwards in Option 1.

    I think this would be a hard-to-sell solution for drivers and Inwould need to see more detailed measurements to know whether it would be reasonable for buses to go towards town this way.

    I might well have misunderstood the proposal but, of course, I would welcome the cycle tracks.

      Just to add, there is a comment that Harlow Moor Drive, Valley Drive route is relatively quiet at the moment. But, that is very unlikely to remain the case if Cold Bath Road was to become one way. The interactions between changes have to be taken into account in traffic modelling.

    On cycle tracks in general – the constraints are unlikely to allow this, but I think the ideal ab-initio design is for two-way cycle tracks on both sides of the road. Pedestrians expect to be able to walk or use wheelchairs in both directions on pavements both sides and the same should apply to cyclists, in theory at least. There also needs to be adequate opportunities for cyclists to cross the road safely.
