Holmston Road, Ayr: bright new cycle lane upsets the car lobby


This Community Links project in Ayr is causing some concern among those who wish to put their children in a car to take them to school and other motorists who think the road belongs to them, see: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/road-bosses-admit-carried-out-8754720

This route east from the centre of Ayr, passing near the railway station, is firming up what was previously advisory cycle lanes – and we know how motorists like to just park their cars in them – and will eventually lead out along the A70 to Coylton and further east.  In fact, it’s just what cycle commuters need – and an excellent start for people going for a day out on their bikes.
