132877Photo #132877This is an arterial route from the station to town centre. Pavements are too narrow and the road is three lanes at this point. There is also a very adverse camber on the north side of the road. If traffic levels are to be restrained, return this to two lanes and widen pavements. This would reduce speeding. The straighter and wider nature of the section of B656 between the traffic lights back to the Verulam road roundabout compared to the stretch from Rail station to roundabout invites speeding from car drivers.Track:

132875Photo #132875There is a footpath through B&M (former B&Q) site which historically was a small lane. If this site is ever redeveloped it would be possible to require this to be opened for cycle access avoiding the roundabout.It would link Nightingale and Walsworth Roads avoiding the main roads. Another suggestion from county council planners when the street improvement scheme went in for Dacre and Radcliffe Roads in the 2000s was for a cycle counterflow on Dacre Road.Cycleway:
