Assisted suicide schemes for cyclists #52
This is the where the dedicated cycle path across the Green Man interchange in Leytonstone emerges on to the northbound A113. Two lanes of fast moving traffic, some of which has come screaming off the M11 Link Road. Drivers coming round the bend from the multi-lane interchange are given no warning that a cyclist might suddenly appear in the road, and cyclists joining the carriageway are given no protection from oncoming traffic.
This interchange formed part of the M11 Link Road construction project, which cost £900 million. And six pounds fifty pence was spent on white paint for cyclists.
