Cycle contraflows are a cheap and effective way of making the town more accessible to cycling. According to Sustrans, the sustainable transport charity:
The permeability of the road network for cyclists can be greatly enhanced by exempting them from one-way roads to provide connections only available to cyclists. Two-way cycling should be the default option where it is proposed to introduce one-way working for general traffic. The operation of existing one-way streets should be reviewed with a view to permitting two-way cycling where practicable. Contraflow cycling can be introduced without a cycle lane where traffic volumes and speeds are low.
Do you know of streets in Abergavenny that could benefit from a cycle contraflow? How about Lion Street, by the old livestock market? Let us know your thoughts.
