Third Class`Road Users

This is the rare example of a useful cycl lane - providing a buffer against reasonably heavy traffic you get long this Thameside route - but in the year I've been using this route the cycle lane has been available for about 2 weeks in total.
This is the A102 flyover in Greenwich - it's a huge roundabout where lorries and buses run red lights regularly and cars ignore the ASLs laid out to protect cyclists. A girl died here earlier in the year - killed by a hit-and-run lorry driver - hence the ghost bike.

This is the ASL at the junction - and as you can see from the state of it - Grenwich aren't exactly committed to protecting cyclists - a bit short sighted considering a young woman died here so recently.
