    I drive along this road at least 4 times a day and I get fed up of having to follow a cyclist all the way to Shoebury when he should be in the cycle lane. When will this people learn? Millions was spent on the lane so use it before someone gets killed.
    “These people” – I can only assume you are referring to cyclists?? Have you ever bothered to get out of your car for a journey that you do 4 times a day and ride in these cycle lanes??? Perhaps wrongly but I assume it’s a NO! The road debris accumulates in said cycle lanes (not to mention the poorly maintained drain covers) and in itself cause a real danger to cyclists and drivers. Would you rather have to “follow” a cyclist or have one swerve to avoid a cyclist who in turn has had to avoid the debris??

    PS I would love to know how many “millions” were spent on the lane….!"
