Increased bicycle traffic on pavement

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction on road or pavement category anonymously at 14:08, Monday 11 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3055259.

The temporary diversion to access the river footpath directs cyclists, walkers etc. to a route via Windsor Villas. This has meant that the pavement outside Windsor Castle is extremely busy which is unsafe for pedestrians using the pavement.

I am neither elderly or disabled but I feel threatened. Cyclists are meant to dismount. Who is monitoring this?

I appreciate it is a temporary measure but with the volume of 2 wheeled traffic on the pavement it is going to cause an accident or injury. People are really aggressive and assume they have right of way. The bus stop adds to the congestion. I am concerned for our safety.
