The council wants to install segregated cycle lanes on both sides of Elm Grove. This would mean the loss of all parking in the road, although a small number of delivery bays would be retained and there would be a small taxi rank. The changes will be made under a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order, meaning another decision would be required before the changes can be made permanent.

The council’s cycling strategy includes a cycle lane along Albert Road and this could end up linking to that. Of course while these changes will benefit cyclists, they will make parking harder and are a threat to already struggling local businesses.

The council is running a consultation, which closes on Monday 7th October. Go to https://travel.portsmouth.gov.uk/schemes/elm-grove-and-kings-road-cycle-lane/ to take part.
