109694Photo #109694It's annoying but not surprising that a multi-million pound high-level bridge can be built across an estuary in only 3 years, but a simple cycle lane takes even longer. Cyclists have to take a diversion around busy roads to bypass this closure. Not acceptable.Obstruction:

105896Photo #105896This photo, looking south toward the bridge, gives an idea of how much space is being taken away from the carriageway and given to cyclists. The bridge is currently only open on weekends - on weekdays you must use a free bus service to cross the Mersey.Cycleway:

105895Photo #105895New shared crossing facility on the north side of the Silver Jubilee Bridge. When the road is opened, this will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road and continue on toward Ditton Road in safety. The path on the right takes you to Hutchinson St, which was blocked off when I took this photo.Cycleway:
