Direct quotes from respondents

“Cycling is very dangerous here. This is a main route for cyclists and must be made safer and more pleasant.”

“The roads here are dangerous to cross, the traffic is not light controlled, and is fortunate to have not seen a serious pedestrian accident. You can’t just allow buses and taxis to flow through in two-lanes and not cars.”
