Walsall Council seem to have a fetish for converting footways into cycleways, there is now no safe walking route between Brownhills and Pelsall.
@mark was it chance that there were 2 HGV in that photo?
Your criticism of pedestrian and cyclists mixing is fair, but I'm terrified to cycle near wagons like that.
@CjMalone The good news is there is an offroad cyclepath along an abandoned railway line almost parallel to the road just 200 meters to the left. Which is ironically a prohibited and yet safer place to walk.
