What has been done so far

COGS the Cycling Opportunities Group Salisbury have been trying to improve infrastructure for cyclists in and around Salisbury for many years and work with WC officers and councillors on the Cycle Liaison Panel and this issue has been discussed in that forum. Wiltshire Council Highways have done a metrocount on Swaynes Close and both number and speed of vehicles is within the range permitted for cycle contraflow.COGS members considered Swaynes Close a high priority for contraflow making the point that there is a direct route into town but one has to divert on the way back or dismount and walk because of the Swaynes Close one way.

What would resolve issue

In order to improve the cycle network in Salisbury further consideration needs to be given to cycle contraflow along Swaynes Close.
