Waltham Forest council opens new rest stop for cyclists

The dedicated cycle lights which provide a safe crossing of the A1006 in Walthamstow have been switched off for several weeks. Many cyclists report extreme fatigue as they wait to find a gap in the high volume of motor traffic, or suffer from stress and anxiety as they take their lives in their hands and pedal across in the face of oncoming speed maniacs. Thankfully, London’s most progressive and cycling-friendly borough has now installed this new rest facility which allows cyclists to relax and unwind, should they succeed in making the crossing alive.
