Hoole Road Bridge is widely regarded as being one of the most hostile stretches of road for cyclists in Chester. As this is a main route into the city centre, the noise and danger involved in crossing this bridge is a significant deterrent to those who might cycle into town from Hoole and neighbouring districts.
Back in 2009 Cheshire County Council commissioned a report into ways to improve the dreadful conditions for cyclists and pedestrians on this bridge. No action has ever been taken as a result of the report due to the cost and complexity of some of the solutions proposed. However, the report is necessary reading for those who have a wish to see improvements on this route into the city centre.
