I am passing through here on my way to work. It's awful to cycle. Too much conflict with drivers, too little space for cycling. And a transport (pedestrian safety, traffic calming) scheme at the southern end which does not work as intended. The twenty speed limit, ah, well, replaced by hostile driving. The usual.
Made me think.
How DO you create space?
Well, in this instance let's make it a one-way street for driving and use the space gained for a two-way cycle way. Easy.

For the ones interested in the wider road context, and who wants to check out the driving detour, here's your map.
