    The modern thinking is NOT to have mixed use lanes for pedestrians and bicycles. For the safety of all users bikes and pedestrians need to be separated. Cities like Cambridge haven’t used mixed use lanes for over a decade! The article above was published in 2013!

    I think England’s LTN 1/20 backs this up: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/951074/cycle-infrastructure-design-ltn-1-20.pdf – not sure if there’s a Welsh equivalent.

    Today’s proposals seem to have this sort of segregated design in mind.

    Should motorised mobility scooters also have a dedicated lane for safety sake?

    Wrexham Council’s own policy was not to have shared footway/cycleways but that seems to have gone out the door over the last few years.

    On the segregated paths in Wrexham (Grey/Red) People always walk in the Cycle lane for some reason.
    If the Council wish to promote cycling in the City, secure cycle storage at the station and in the centre are a must.

    Don’t forget also that pedestrianised areas mean just that. I am absolutely fed up with cyclists using Regent St and Hope St like a racing track threading between shoppers going about their daily
    business.

    Cyclists seem to want to rule the roost with impunity as if they are a special breed.

    Maybe some people could do with looking back at 1930’s newspapers in the archives concerning cyclists, safety, cycle tracks & accident statistics. Journalists in those days actually reported news & make very interesting reading.

    I remember a Bobby on a bike giving me a clip around the ear for cheek. Then he told my dad and i got another smack. This is what we are missing these days.

    Just make sure that it is heavily policed and any cyclists out of bike lane should be shot, also pedestrians who don’t walk on the pavement (Rhos) same and mobility scooters who use the road should be flattened by a lorry.
