HAVING abandoned the plans to continue the cycleway from The Avenue along Post Street in Godmanchester, the council seems to have left us with the worst of all worlds.

The residents in Post Street continue to park their cars on the pavement, leaving barely enough room for a mother with a push-chair. Cyclists continue to ride on the pavement as if it were a cycleway, and pedestrians have to contend with aggressive cyclists riding with no lights and no bell to signal their approach from behind.

As a community, we have to decide whether the pavement in Post Street should be a cycleway or not. If it is to be a cycleway, then it should be widened where necessary and the residents should be stopped from parking on the pavement. If not, then steps should be taken to make it clear to the cyclists that they may not ride on it.

The current situation is not acceptable and will continue to be a potential source of accidents.
