First you get an expensive (and very expert) road marking company to come and paint very nicely done road markings with cycle lanes in light beige, behind double white lines wit drawings of bicycles to tell people what they are for, new road markings everywhere until it looks absolutely splendid. A real treat to see.

Then you get the whole bloody lot covered in a new layer of black tarmac obscuring everything .

Following this, you then engage aforementioned road marking company to come out and do it all again to the same high standard.

Then, and only then, you can sit back and declare you have run out of money and the local library will have to close!

This procedure can be observe along New Chester Road between Rock lane and the Rock ferry end of the bypass!

I don't know whether this brilliant piece of financial management is down to our wonderful government, our own dear local council or whether it is the result of combined brainwork by the pair of them, but I congratulate them for entertaining us all so magnificently.Well done lads!

The mind boggles, the trouble is, it's not an isolated case.

That stretch is a joke anyway, loads of cars park in the cycle lane when going to doctors across the road.

What do you think of the limpets in New Ferry?

If the contractors cambrian way had done it properly the first time it would not of needed three coats and i doubt they filled the pot holes in before so make it 4 . Add the environmental damage with the boiled tar and no amount of cyclists will offset the damage.

If you are going to dedicate part of the road to cyclists, a paint line (even a double one) is no good whatsoever. You need a kerb, and one high enough to discourage cars from parking on the cycle path - maybe 9" or foot in height or a steel barrier.

If you can't do that, don't bother at all. A marked off area of the New Chester Road is a joke, except that it is not going to be very funny when someone gets killed on it.
