Integrated Cycle Ways?

Round the outskirts of Abingdon are various cycle ways, but in the town centre they just don't join up...

At the top of East St Helens Street, for example, some cyclists seem to ignore what is a one way street and ride from Lombard Street up against the flow towards St Nic's Church. They are supposed to dismount.

Oxfordshire County Council did draw up a scheme that would have made this cycle route legal and safer.

It meant reducing the flower bed by the County Hall, loosing taxi parking spaces, and cutting a cycle way through the island in front of St Nic's Church.

Not sure this got any further than the drawing board.
