A38 Blue Route – first impressions

Given a  choice between the canal towpath or the new A38 cycleway, the blue route wins. There’s room for bikes to pass each other, major junctions are negotiated  easily with proper traffic light design enabling you to get successive greens across multiple roads at the Middleway and Priory Road. Pedestrians seem to be keeping out of the way – the blue tarmac seems to imply that this is not their space.

In town it ends in Kent Street (where?) which is reasoably close to Hurst Street and the Rea Valley route, but outbound from town there is no signposting at all.  8/10
