The Proposal is more than just a Cycle Route! There are various improvements at Haymarket, our busy integrated transport hub.
- New loading bays near the station benefit rail users being dropped off from a car.
- Improvements to drop off and disabled facilities subject to review under a separate study.
- Train users can “bike-and-ride” more safely using the new cycle route, which bypasses the busy, dangerous junction where there have been accidents in the past. Existing dedicated cycle-parking stores 90 bicycles in the same space that 6 cars would use.
- Although the main taxi has been relocated, it is only 38m further away (distance measurement from presentation by opponents of the Proposal).
