Barriers for cycle routes – time for a rethink about accessibility 

Physical barriers on infrastructure can not only be discriminatory to those with disabilities, they also hinder efforts to transition to active travel, writes Chris Knight. If a modal shift to mass walking and cycling is ever going to take place, we must recognise and address this obstacle to encourage and enable more walking and cycling.

Meeting on ‘Active Travel’ Corridor

Meeting on ‘Active Travel’ Corridor

Vocal opponents to the “Quietways” avoiding the A629 Halifax Road are circulating a great many half-truths and misinformation. A meeting with Kirklees Council planners has been called by opponents of this green corridor on Thursday 3rd March at 18.00 at Gledholt Church (on the roundabout just below the Ambulance station in Marsh). Interested KCC members should attend, particularly from north Huddersfield.

About Cycle Kirklees

Cycle Kirklees promotes everyday cycling. We campaign for ‘easier to navigate’ roads and safer routes for cyclists. This, together with cycle training, will encourage more people in Kirklees to use a bike – for travelling to work, school or college, for going shopping, or for leisure, well-being and keeping fit and healthy.
We monitor and comment on local and regional transport strategies and specific road and off-road plans – particularly those aimed at improving cycling and walking.
