In a subsequent tweet:
The driver drove his car over the bike's rear wheel and cyclist's leg. The victim was strongly of the view that had a child on a bike been involved, it could have been killed.

Problem

150274Photo #150274The cycle lane just ends here and traffic just squashes out any cyclist. There is also no provision for cyclists to safely get round the busy roundabout and this is a key route between Chessington and Surbiton which is a transport hub, and then to Kingston too. The traffic lanes are wide here so they could be reduced which would slow traffic and would allow for a segregated cycle way all the way from Mansfield Road to Surbiton!Cycleway:

149124Photo #149124Remove the cones under the railway bridge before September: The cones to promote cycling and social distancing have been a disaster - especially for cyclists. In reducing road capacity back to levels of 1859, woefully inadequate by the 1950s, we now have a 2 mile tailback from the A24 to the A3. Unless these cones are removed before the local schools reopen in early September, we will have a serious environmental hazard of idling traffic running from New Malden to Cheam!Cycleway:
