The new Splash Point

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2011-07-01 11:25
The newly-redesigned Splash Point is now positively thronging with people, many of them travelling by bicycle. Such an improvement over the empty windswept concrete space it was before. The cafés appear to be doing a roaring trade too! The new Splash Point

Pedal the Prom - NO CYCLING

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2011-07-01 10:41
The group gathers at the end of the cycling. Here we split into two groups, one lot braving the not-nice Marine Drive and the others walking to Sea Lane Café.

The big question on everyone’s minds was “why is the NO CYCLING sign just here?” – surely it would make more sense at the end of the Prom, where there are ways of getting back onto the road?

Ways onto the Prom at the western end

There are no official ways to get to and from the Prom at the western end, a surprising omission. Ways onto the Prom at the western end

The area between the Lido and the Pier can get busy at times, but during the week it’s nice and quiet. The Lido

Cyclists Don't Dismount?

This is a fun variation on a theme: a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign temporarily covered by the Council. Cyclists Don't Dismount?

From the east of Worthing Promenade we have a segregated cycle lane along the seafront. Cycle parts are green, with red patches where cyclists might need to take care, or for short shared-use sections.

The lane is just about wide enough for two-way use, although many cyclists cross the line to the pedestrian side to pass each other, especially if travelling fast.

The red banner shelters café seating on the beach, on the opposite side of the route from the café itself.

The new 20mph zone-let at the Pier roundabout

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-08-18 18:51
The road is now a 20 limit outside the Pier, not that it makes much difference as the zone is only a few hundred yards long here.

But it’s a useful start!

Worthing seafront is slowly but surely turning from a bleak expanse of tarmac next to a busy road, into a rather pleasant and relaxing place to be. People are becoming important to planners again!

The design mess in front of the Pier

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-08-18 18:46
This space was re-modelled some years ago, and then the road layout was re-done a few years ago. The result is rather a mess, with unnecessary bollards and steps in the middle of the Prom.

Had this are been left flat open space, cyclists would find it much easier to avoid pedestrians going to and from the Pavilion Theatre.

A really nice solution would be to incorporate the new 20mph limit stretch with the Prom and the pavement, removing all edges like they do in Dutch towns!
