The entire stretch of road has confusing signs. But doesn’t warn cyclists of the dangers. Cyclists have told me the tracks are particularly dangerous when wet.

Anna Soubry MP for Broxtowe is hosting a top level meeting to make cyclists safe on the tram tracks. The meeting is on Tuesday February 16th February at Anna’s constituency office which is on the road where there have been dozens of serious accidents. Senior executives from NET and Tramlink will attend along with the local police, Councillors and Council officials.

Anna said “experienced and responsible cyclists have suffered serious injuries after their wheels got caught in the tram tracks. High/Chilwell Road in Beeston is dangerous for cyclists. We need measures to make it safe, including better signs . We can’t go on with so many cyclists getting injured and I hope everyone will agree it’s now imperative we make the road safe for cyclists”
