Most times the traffic is in actual fact traveling at 10mph over the speed limit and it's extremely dangerous to cross this road at this point.
For much of this cycle path the width is between 18 and 24 inches. Way too narrow for myself and trike. I therefore have never attempted to actually use this wonderful bit of cycling infrastructure.
I haven't seen any part of the path being maintained since it became shared use. It's overgrown, narrow and knobbly from start to finish.
Basically it's a case of "Well, pedestrians don't use it so if you want to cycle on it you can, but don't expect us to take care of it. You use it at your own risk"
