What do we want to see in LTP3?

The Council along with the rest of South Yorkshire is drawing up its plan for transport for the next 5 years. What would we like to see in it? Ideas are being collected at ltp3 One thing's for sure - there won't be any money for large capital projects and small-scale cycling projects represent excellent value for money. 

Not On Network

Sheffield City Council has placed this Motor Traffic Information Sign in the middle of the cycle track on Eyre St. (& widened the cycle track slightly so that when you run into it and are lying on the ground bleeding, you are still on the footway and not inconveniencing any motorists.)  As Sustrans frequently gets the blame for this sort of stupidity I felt it necessary to add a "Not on Network" sticker to it - to it make it plain that it is nothing to do with Sustrans, but also to warn cyclists of the hazard.  Our suggestion was that as the sign is for the benefit of motorists it should have been put in the middle of the carriageway instead.
