  • Guided busway hazard

    Created by Philip // 1 thread

    Sunday 26th of September 10.15pm I was cycling from Cambridge North to Histon.  I collided with a fence immediately after exiting the A14 tunnel and sustained a dislocated shoulder along with other injuries.

    There is definitely a hazard here because 

    1) the busway and tunnel from Cambridge North are brightly lit.  The busway after the tunnel towards Histon is unlit.  

    2) about 30m after the tunnel the width of the busway tarmac surface suddenly reduces due to the introduction of the gravel strip (approx 1m wide).  There is also a fence near the start of the gravel strip (I assume for the small animal tunnel)..

    I cycled through the tunnel and noticed a cyclist coming in the opposite direction (without lights), so I took avoiding action by moving to the left.  I may have then glanced at my mobile phone on my handlebars.  When I looked up I saw the fence in my headlight.  I then hit or clipped the fence.
