Cyclists ignoring their new lanes in Alicante


DRIVERS using the newly upgraded southern access road to Alicante have added a further complaint to the ever growing list.

They had to endure five months of road works that went over time while the new cycle lanes were installed, a result of which was a reduction in speed limits from 80kph to 50kph and a series of radars erected.  Narrower lanes to make way for the cycle tracks had already seen a few close scrapes with buses and lorries.  Now, a number of cyclists are ignoring the dedicated road way, preferring instead to stay within the main flow of traffic.

Motorists are sharing their frustrations on social media stating that the narrower lanes on the main road mean that it’s almost impossible to give cyclists the required one and half metre space as they overtake them.
