Regional Local Authority Engineers please read this Evidence. Designing for cycling isnt that complicated if seen from a user perspective.
Many of the routes that appeared here from 2014 as my own keys routes like Queen Anne Drive are now being rebuilt to include quality cycleways, an era that has just begun in earnest.
Please remake the same spaces available for the future- move on from this Poole example below and improve with following examples:-

My Poolemouth routes (all time and distance measured on this website) form my personal promotion since 2015, some of which appear on the priority TCF C1,2,3,5 Routes, there will of course be others priorities. Put simply the main aim is to upgrade what already exists in the conurbation, to quality standards, this cannot necessarily mean protected cycle lanes but with expected constraints can initiate moves towards them. Clearest existing example of this is Wimborne rd from Richmond Hill roundabout to Cemetery junction, where an advisory lane has changed designation to mandatory- with no parking restriction, eventually this could be kerbed for a protected lane. My recommendations to Bournemouth centre on re-designation of ALL existing advisory lanes in the area, example Glenfurness avenue. As Chairman of the area forum, theres an upcoming calendar of actions related, a framework for my year ahead:-

These 4 are from Archway Scheme, North London, one of many previous London gyratories that have be closed on one arm, a method that changes the streetscape entirely for users- reprioritising transport and minimising short journeys by car. Several of these old style gyratories exist in Poolemouth, e.g Ensbury Park or Darbys Corner.
These 4 are a quality T-junction rebuild.
