Why can’t cyclists and pedestrians share a common path?

The E4 Cycle Route will be a high quality facility, which cyclists are intended to use to get between Redhayes Bridge and the University.

On this section of the route, there are few junctions or points where pedestrians need to cross over. Therefore, it is in the best interests of all users of the route to segregate pedestrians and cyclists, which will improve the experience and safety of both users.
