A CYCLE lane is set to be amended after feedback showed the majority of people did not support it.

Brighton and Hove City Council officers are set to look at options to fix queues at the Old Shoreham Road’s junction with Olive Road.

The proposal comes after its own public survey found 64 per cent of people do not support the cycle lane installed in May.

One of the “key concerns” respondents to the survey noted was the issue of congestion at the Olive Road right hand turn.

The council says there has been a 61 per cent increase in cyclists using Old Shoreham Road cycle lanes when compared to 2016.

This equates to an average of 545 cyclists using Old Shoreham Road cycle lanes per day.

This enthusiasm has not been shared by respondents to a public survey on the schemes.

The survey found 34 per cent are in support of the lane, two per cent are undecided and 64 per cent are against it.

At a key meeting held next Tuesday, councillors will also be asked to consider our travel habits since the introduction of emergency transport changes.

The new environment chairwoman, Green councillor Amy Heley said: “We’ve seen significant changes to the way people are travelling around Brighton and Hove, even as we’ve come out of lockdown.

“More of us are walking and cycling, there are fewer cars on our roads and there are still a lot of people working from home.

“In a short time, we’ve also seen the School Streets project supporting children back into the classroom, encouraging them and their parents and carers to walk, cycle or scoot to school.

“Covid-19 has not gone away and we’re seeing a rise in cases across the country. Active travel remains vitally important for helping people to move around our city safely.”
