Warning signs improve safety at cycle track

The development of warning signs has been credited with improving safety at a cycle route in Essex.

According to the Echo, there have been concerns that the track, which runs to Chalkwell, did not feature sufficient health and safety signage to warn people it is separated from the pavement.

Recently a cyclist fractured his elbow trying to avoid a child who had walked onto the path.

But now the local council will erect warning signs to improve safety on the lane. A spokesperson told the newspaper: "One of the main aims was to create a dedicated, two-way track that would segregate pedestrians from cyclists and cyclists from vehicles.
"New awareness signs will be installed along the route in the near future, to further improve safety."
The council said it would also consider painting lines to indicate the separation if need be.
Earlier this month safety signage was proposed to stop cyclists using a stretch of riverside in London.
