Outside Dobbies Garden Centre

Reported in the Sign problem category anonymously at 11:50, Thursday 3 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Customer accident on pathway outside our store (she was a cyclist on pathway). Full details are with Wendover Parish Council (Keith Shelley, Parish Clerk).

From our investigations, we have established that the pathway outside the store is actually not demarcated as a cycle lane and is a footpath only. Cyclists travelling along the defined cycle path from the Aylesbury direction are instructed to leave the path and re-join the main carriageway just after the roundabout where the A413 & the B4009 (Wendover Road) intersect. There is blue & white signage to indicate “End of Cycle Route” with a run off lane enabling the cyclists to re-join the main carriageway. From the other direction, coming from Wendover, the signage is not as clear and has not been well maintained. It is our understanding that there used to be clear signage as well as symbolic markings painted on the path and main carriageway but that this was not maintained / updated when the pathway was re-surfaced some time back. Cyclists travelling this route are to use the defined route at the traffic island to cross the road and travel along the cycle path on the opposite side of Wendover Road. The pathways, slipway and Give Way markings are there but the road markings & signage have not been maintained / replaced.
