Crackdown on 'wrong way' Falmouth town centre cyclists
2:20pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in Falmouth/Penryn
NEW signs could be put up in Falmouth to stop cyclists travelling the wrong way along the one-way system in the town centre.
Town manager Richard Gates revealed the idea was under consideration at a meeting of the town council last week.
He said: “There are frequently issues of people cycling the wrong way through the main streets, primarily along Arwenack Street, Church Street and Market Street and we are looking into the possibility of installing signs subject to agreements from Cornwall Council and the police.”
The news comes in the same week local resident Roger Jacob contacted the Packet to complain about the issue.
He said: “Has anyone noticed the number of people cycling against the traffic in Falmouth’s Main Street?
“The main cause has to be the lack of signage to indicate that bicycles are forbidden.
“Why am I writing this, well mainly because I’m fed up with being almost knocked over by inconsiderate pedal pushers.”
