I have cycled up and down this road (the A56, North Manchester) many, many times so take it for granted somewhat. However, I thought this was a fine example of a crap cycle lane to share. This junction was 'improved' last year and us cyclists got some fresh green paint to go with the general widening. It just shows what lip service is paid to cycling infrastructure in this country the existing cycle lane which went all the way to junction was actually terminated just prior to the refreshed section. You can see the old (admittedly poor) cycle lane in the still image courtesy of Google Maps. Still, another box ticked somewhere, for something or other no doubt!
