Vince Cable welcomes back down by The Royal Parks on cycling in Bushy Park

Vince Cable has welcomed the decision by The Royal Parks to remove no cycling signs throughout the Duke's Head passage from Hampton.

Vince Dukes Passage

Royal Parks will replace the present signs with new signage asking all park users to show mutual consideration and respect.

Commenting on this decision Vince Cable said:

"Pedestrians, cyclists and dog walkers have for a long time managed to rub along together perfectly well for decades along Duke's Head Passage with little, if anything, in the way of confrontation.   This is an important cycle route, which I have used myself in the past.  Responsible cycling should be permitted.

“Along with Councillor Gareth Roberts I have long supported a rethink by the Royal Parks management.  I congratulate everyone who has campaigned on this issue and ensured The Royal Parks have backed down on this issue.    It is great to see commonsense prevail on this issue."
