Why do people travelling in the cycle lane on the priority road (Drummartin Rd) have to give way to motor vehicles from Eden Park Drive entering the priority road? This layout is extremely dangerous. Please kindly review video above, and re-assess the junction itself.

  • It would be safe and nice to have a zebra crossing at this junction and give walkers and cyclists priority. There is already traffic calming speed bump here that footpath and cycle lane run across. There is good visibility for traffic turning on to road here. Many drivers already give way to cyclists and walkers but a good few do drive onto the junction and block it while waiting for gap in traffic.

  • Same thing applies to almost all cycle paths; for some reason they are supposed to yield to side junctions, which is why it's infinitely safer to use the road. Cycle lanes are, after all, optional.

  • Same issue applies directly opposite, at the junction of Drummartin Road and Kilmacud Road Lower.

  • The issues at this junction are ongoing, and I fear it will take a serious injury on worse for it to be reviewed and improved.
