No one is denying that there will be extra traffic coming through because of the Prom closure to North to South traffic.  The question is whether the best way to deal with increased traffic is to put

Yes I went through before and the tailbacks were huge for a Sunday afternoon. The queue for the lights was almost back to the junction to go to Police HQ. It’s pathetic. They just need to stop doing t

Ask yourself, was there any point in introducing it in the first instance?

Lezayre Road. Another one.

Although I will confess to seeing A cyclist using it last weekend.

what's wrong with it? Seems fine for any half competent driver.

Competence of drivers has nothing to do with it. What's the point of it if it's never used? Where was the assessment for its necessity and the volume of use before it was installed? There was never a previous requirement for a cycle lane there; Sunday morning pelotons don't use it either - witnessed, preferring to take up what's left of the east-bound vehicle carriageway.

Other than the expense of design, marking it out, then coming back a second time to sort out the markings that were ballsed up the first time. And future renovation of said markings. All DOI trademarks.

Humble pie required.

The DOI eats humble pie for breakfast, lunch and tea. They won’t give a toss about eating any more. In fact if there ever was a humble pie eating contest it’s about the only thing that the DOI would be able to have a go at excelling at.

So I heard. But the buses can't reach the lane as they are also stuck in the tailback. No time saved for anyone. Humble pie required.

The lane changes to cycles only before the filter at the lights, so buses have to go back into the centre lane anyway.

But all the scheduled buses (not sure about school ones) using that lane are turning left, so they don't need to move to the centre to go ahead or right.

Worth also remembering that this is supposed to be a temporary feature until the prom is no longer one way (though how long that will happen for is another matter) and of course that it was completely illegal as the DoI hadn't bothered with any of the legal formalities.

That's the point, about half way along it becomes a cycle lane, not a cycle and bus lane.

The signage still does not appear correct/legal for a bus lane if you look at the UK regulations ( of course the IOM may have its own regulations but they seem to mostly follow UK as that saves them having to think too much).
