Cambridgeshire County Council has dismissed calls for better lighting to be installed along a stretch of a guided busway cycle track in Cambridge.

Local councillors Amanda Taylor and Andy Blackhurst believe that cyclists could suffer serious injuries unless lighting is improved on the path, and have launched a petition for changes to be made, reports Cambridge First.

Councillor Taylor, who represents Queen Edith’s, told the news provider: "The cycleway is well-used and very much appreciated but the lack of lighting of most of the route poses a serious safety risk."

Ms Taylor explained that, while she wants cyclists to take advantage of the cycle path, it is important to know that they are safe.

Elsewhere, Ripley and Heanor News recently reported how the recent cold weather has led to changes in safety signage in Kilburn.

The freezing weather prompted water company Severn Trent to attend to an overflowing drain in the region, where they installed warning signs to boost the safety of motorists.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801291948-ADNFCR
