Toucan crossing on Aston Church Road
Thankfully this section was short, because the footpath here was narrow and the railings made it even narrower. The running lanes for the motor traffic are wider than they need to be, so in the future it should be possible to reallocate space from the carriageway to the footpath to bring this footpath up to an acceptable width. The tight 90 degree turn makes the lack of space worse - if two cycle users met each other coming in opposite directions, someone would have to give way, reducing the time that they have to cross here safely.
