Velorution in Blackburn

Ian Kay, who manages Ewood Bikes on Bolton Road, Blackburn, said: “I have not heard of anything like that before. You would have to be brave to use it”.

Lancashire Telegraph cycling columnist Dave Brown said: “It’s a good thing - but Blackburn is a very difficult town to get around for a cyclist. There’s no structure”.

Judging by the photograph, this is an exemplary contraflow system - at least a couple of metres wide and distinctively marked out. Quite a contrast to this.
