Burnham-On-Sea seafront cyclists are "an accident waiting to happen"

A Burnham-On-Sea resident has warned that cyclists using The Esplanade are "an accident waiting to happen."

Sylvia Young told town councillors at their meeting on Monday (June 6th): "It's an accident waiting to happen - many cyclists have no bells and give no warning. It seems pedestrians have no priority anywhere any longer."

"I wonder whether local councils have decided to take a blind eye to contraventions, possibly due to a lack of manpower and finance?"

"The definition of 'Esplanade' is a long, level area for walking, especially by the sea."

Cllr Andy Brewer said he would follow up on her concerns and keep her informed.
