Footpath entry to Victoria Park opposite Portsmouth and Southsea station - this should all be opened up for cycling.

The signage next to these cycle stands could be open to mis-interpretation....

For 6 months in 1978 Portsmouth had cycle-only roads; shared roads had big cycle logos. https://t.co/SwsDszXlUy https://t.co/lHNvCWHSSe

Road closure with no thought given to cyclists (and no use made of the space for cycle parking, seating, planters...). The on-road cycle lane ends, so why not give cyclists the option of using the parallel minor road?

This should be a proper unobstructed cycle crossing.
