Hyde Park Corner
Work is underway by TFL at Hyde Park corner and has had the effect of removing the cycle lane entrance into Hyde Park from the roundabout. This means the lane that is marked and croses the traffic island now terminates in a pavement - cycle across it and face a fixed penalty. The pavement has been relaid with tactile slabs. Other alternatoive is to use the other road and pass throuigh a no entry sign - Oh another fixed penalty.
In summary a cycle route has simply been terminated. This is already a very dangerous junction with the added problem of many tourists offering opportunities for conflict.
This is not the Dutch way of doing things.
