Cycle lanes in Salisbury

WC is installing cycle lanes on Salisbury's Exeter Street and Brown Street later this month, to link Harnham and Salisbury District Hospital to the city centre and give cyclists easy access to the city.

The scheme will see one southbound lane on Brown Street turned into a cycleway and the removal of on-street parking on Exeter Street.

The temporary scheme is part of the Department for Transport's emergency active travel funding, and due to the requirement to install the scheme within a short timeframe, it does not require the usual consultation.

People wishing to cycle to Harnham and the hospital from the city centre can follow the new cycle paths along Brown Street and Exeter Street, before joining up with the existing shared use path along New Bridge Road and on to Odstock Road.

In the other direction, coming from Harnham and the hospital to the city, people should follow the existing shared use path along New Bridge Road, then take the existing inbound route along De Vaux Place and West Walk, past the cathedral and into the city centre.
