Pop-Up Cycle Lanes on Hingeston Street

Pop-Up Cycle Lanes on Hingeston Street
This method of dealing with bus stops seems reasonable to me, as a temporary measure. Longer term, bus stop bypasses would need to be built. We also need to build cycleways wider. Overtaking another cyclist here would necessitate dodging wands as well as motor traffic. Cycleways in the Netherlands are 2 metres wide in each direction, so that people can overtake slower cyclists safely, and to facilitate side-by-side social cycling (in the same way that people in cars sit next to each other so they can talk).
