103478Photo #103478It's really great to have new cycle parking in Romsey, but the workmanship on the installation is rather disappointing.

The racks and bollards have been left covered with ugly dirt smears - which look to me like concrete dust.
The ground too has also been left rather badly covered with the dried concrete powder. It all feels very unloved.

All that was needed I think was a good hose down, sweeping with a good stiff brush and wiping the bollards and racks with a damp cloth.

Measurements across this street accurate to 5cm:

Right footway: 180cm
Kerb to offside edge of bollard: 155cm
Remaining carriageway: 425cm
Footway on other side of road: 175cm.

The spacing between the three racks is:
Far pair: 175cm
Near pair: 160cm

103410Photo #103410Argyle Street with new street cycle parking.

Measurements from left to right accurate to 5cm:

Left footway: 180cm
Cycle lane: 165cm
Carriageway between offside edge of white line and bollard: 265cm
Offside edge of bollard to right kerb: 150cm
Right footway: 165cm

Effective carriageway width by the racks: 165+265 = 430cm.

The spacing between racks is roughly 1 metre but varies by 10cm.

The bollard at the far end is 10.5 metres from the Mill Road carriageway (i.e. where the gutter is).

The term 'offside' above should be interpreted as meaning the side nearest the middle of the road.

I turned these bikes upside down about a month ago because I'd noticed they'd been missing wheels on a few previous visits. They're still there! But there are plans to clean them out according to signs that are on the next photos #102764 and #102765.

Twelve days later they're still there: #102956.
