Photo #58278

Upper Thames Street is a very busy, TfL controlled road in the City of London. Following recent works, an on-carriageway cycle lane was repainted much narrower than it used to be. Narrow cycle lanes are worse than useless: they encourage people to ride in the gutter, thereby reducing the available space to avoid obstacles, or to veer away from vehicles that may be overtaking too close. The photo shows people cycling having to ride outside the lane just to maintain a safe position.
