There are more long racks on the Old Market Street side and more than there were before, reflecting the preference of people to stay near National 1. The drop kerb near the right became a Tiger crossing (Zebra+cycles)Cycle parking:

62793Photo #62793Cycleway avoiding A10/A47/A149 junction on the left, at a level slightly below the footpath (centre) but that doesn't matter: most walkers use the cycleway around this junction because it's further away from the road. Cycle traffic has to wait at most arms to use Toucan crossings, leading to a very low average speed through this junction (under 4mph).Road environment:

62791Photo #62791Heading down the Avenue towards Dersingham. Much easier than the climb back up. Although this is a B-road, it is usually pretty quiet: quieter than the minor road leading to Sandringham car parks from the A149.Road environment:
