  • Usk foot/cycle Bridge at Llanfoist

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    If the authorities are serious about expanding Llanfoist with new housing and de-trunking the A40 though Abergavenny, then they have to face this problem. A foot/cycle bridge, either just upstream of the existing bridge, or down stream into castle meadows would both be a solution, as would a new road bridge that would allow the old bridge to become single lane.

    We all know that cost is the big problem here and that some of the options are not going to be possible, but we should campaign for some solution to be found.

  • Usk Bridge traffic calming and pedestrian crossings

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 1 thread

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    If a foot/cycle bridge is not going to happen in the medium term, then how about some traffic calming measures to reduce driver's speed expectations over the bridge? Drivers who have just come of a dual carriage way at 70mph+ or have been zooming along the A40 at 60mph+ are suddenly sharing space with cyclists having had little warning that this is about to happen.

    We suggest deploying traffic calming measures, such as marked cycle ways, belisha beacon crossings (much needed anyway!) and signage making it clear that care is required. If the speed limit was clearly lower, many drivers will not be so aggressively trying to overtake cyclists.

  • Rebuild the Usk railway bridge as a cycle/foot bridge

    Radical, and would please victorian steam enthusiasts... but how about actually re-instating the old high-level bridge? The footings are still there and, if extended, could link directly onto route 46 beside Waitrose, thereby avoiding the need to cross the busy road!

  • Bridge between Abergavenny and Llanfoist: the 'missing link'

    Created by Jack Thurston // 1 thread

    Cycle Route 46 from crosses the old stone bridge across the River Usk between Abergavenny and Llanfoist. There are good, safe and direct cycle paths on either side of the bridge, but the bridge itself is very hostile for cycling, and walking. It is on the A4143 and there is heavy often fast traffic most times of the day. The footway is very narrow and only on one side of the bridge. Although short, this is a difficult section to negotiate, especially for inexperienced or young cyclists.
