133145Photo #133145The problem is an excellent cycleway leads from Shrewsbury to Bayston Hill however to join up with the villages to the south you are forced on to the A49 until the Condover turning after which it is possible to take a circuitous route down to Dorrington, Longnor, Leebotwood and Church Stretton. At the very least, the cycleway should be extended at least as far as the Condover turning, but ideally beyond that to enable sustainable transport to the southern villages.Cycleway:

67015Photo #67015Shrewsbury's 10 yard contraflow on Mardol!

I think the idea of this is to create a continuous route from the side street on the left (blocked by a stored motor vehicle) to the right.

The central area is a disastrous maze of one way streets, but with plenty of on street parking areas. Ideally the whole lot should become two way for bikes - obviously - but the conservatism shown in this pathetic example shows just how big that challenge will be!
