Whitehouse Farm Development modifications to Westgate/Sherbourne Mini Roundabout will contravene the Equality Act 2010

Whitehouse Farm Development modifications to Westgate/Sherbourne Mini Roundabout will contravene the Equality Act 2010

ChiCycle are concerned with plans to relocate cyclists from Westgate and Sherbourne roads onto unsuitable pavements around the mini roundabout junction. We believe this will contravene the Equality Act 2010 as vulnerable pedestrians will be forced into direct conflict with significant flows of cyclists. Please see the attached document for more details of our concerns. Our concerns are outlined in detail in this PDF report on the proposals. The following images show where pavements with blind corners will be converted…

The National Cycle Network South Coast Route (No2) Destined to get Even Longer!

You might imagine, after many years of campaigning about extending cycleways, ChiCycle would be excited and enthused over the prospect of a cycle route being made longer! However, we are concerned that the National Cycle Network South Coast Route (No2) is destined to become longer only by virtue of it being made increasingly convoluted. People will soon have to travel even further just to reach the same destinations. Unfortunately the section from the City’s Market Cross to the Fishbourne underpass…

Whitehouse Farm Development Endangers Three Popular Cycle Routes

Whitehouse Farm Development Endangers Three Popular Cycle Routes

Salterns Way, ChEmRoute and Centurion Way are all under imminently threatened from plans for a southern access route linked to the Whitehouse Farm housing development. Saltern’s way is a delightful cycleway that leads from the Market Cross in Chichester all the way to West Wittering beach. It leads through miles of rural countryside and around the perimeter of Chichester harbour. ChEmRoute is the name of the project to upgrade the cycle way provision between the centres of Chichester and Emsworth….
