On the 13th July 2021, plans for Old Shoreham Road’s Temporary Cycle Lanes in Brighton and Hove were made public following consultation. While the Cycle Lanes were initially put in as an emergency measure before the Emergency Active Travel Fund was announced, they are now subjected to the active travel fund Tranche 2. The initial plans was to extend the temporary lanes all the way to the West Sussex border, however due to feedback from consultation from earlier in the year it has been decided to not pursue this extension at the moment, instead making amends to the current temporary lanes.
Results from the consultation
3,168 residents responded to the consultation for changes and extension to the cycle lanes on Old Shoreham Road with the biggest concern about the current lanes being dangers at junctions. A large amount of residents are against the scheme with the main reasons being related congestion and lack of cyclists using it. An extension of the lane was supported by 20.4% of responses, while 79.6% were against. As a result the lanes will not be extended at the current time, however it can be expected that in a future scheme cycle and/or bus lanes will replace at least a single lane of the dual carriageway.
