Cyclist blasts "badly designed" track in Seacombe
Is this the worst cycle path in Merseyside?
Cyclist James Maloney thinks so – he posted this photo on Twitter slamming a cycle lane in Birkenhead Road, Seacombe.
He asked: “Worst designed bike path in Wirral? Bike path run straight into a bench, bus stop and two trees.”
James, from Fazakerley, said: “I think it’s poorly designed – it runs into a bench.
“If you were on it and travelling towards Seacombe you’d either have to get off the bike and push it around or go into the road, where the traffic is coming towards you, before you can rejoin it.
“It’s an example of really bad planning.”
