St Owen's Street
To provide a safe cycle route from the east of the city into the city centre
To improve the ease and safety for pedestrians crossing St Owen Street
To improve the safety of vehicles using parking bays along St Owen Street
The committee's view, having been involved in the recent consultation process as a 'stakeholder is :
Option C is the best - this has full contraflow for Mill St as well as a better junction at Cantilupe/St Owen St (both outcomes of the stakeholder meeting).
Option A has the full contraflow - good - but the wider the wider junction at Cantilupe/St Owen St - bad.
Option B is the worst - this has the quite ridiculous ‘half length contraflow’ for Mill St as well as the wider junction at Cantilupe/St Owen St
(stakeholders concerns here were about the speed of traffic turning onto St Owen St and conflict with cyclists).
