The Chester Cycling Campaign and other local cycling organisations are fighting for improvements to be made on the A540 to protect the safety of the many cyclists who use this route for commuting, training, and leisure cycling. The road is also the only way to access the Eureka Cyclists’ Cafe, exposing customers to the risks associated with the heavy and fast moving traffic on this route.
In order to be able to press for improvements, the Chester Cycling Campaign carried out a survey to gather cyclists’ views about what would be their preferred options for any safety improvements that might be made to the road. The survey ran from May 2010 to July 2012.
The results of the survey are now being used in our liaison work with the relevant Highway Authorities and Cheshire West and Chester Council. Below is an orientation map of the area which will assist you in understanding the aggregated answers of the questions used in the survey. Clicking on the map will open a larger version of the map in a new window.
(Note that the old road numbering system was used for this survey, as this is the numbering that most of us will be familiar with.)
