Has anyone else almost cycled into the emergency vehicle only gate on Bartholomew Road? Its particullarly dangerous at night. the street in one for car but not for bikes
Have written as follow to the Council
ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN
the kentish town road end of Bartholomew Road is one way to most vehicle but 2 ways to cyclists. this is due to an emergency exist game. When heading west at night the gate is poorly lit and because it is painted black, very hard to spot on a bicycle, even at a moderate speed.
Potentially this is a serious risk waiting to happen!
By painting a white strip or sticking reflective on the rear of the barrier would go some considerable way to reducing this risk both simply and cost effectively
Please act soon before someone is hurt.
