Route through Carrville
Once you have reached Carrville from West Rainton, a route is needed to proceed further towards Durham. The main street through Carrville is actually quite wide, and the pavement on the NW side is particularly wide.
Because of the traffic volumes and speeds, a hard-segregated cycle facility needs to be provided. The challenge will be maintaining appropriate levels of car parking and access to businesses.
Options that should be evaluated include closure of the road to through-traffic, to encourage traffic to use the A690 more. Parking could be concentrated on one side of the road and a segregated bidirection cycle path could be provided on the other side. Or there may be room for parking on both sides, providing that the cycle track is placed between the pavement and the parking. A shared-use footway/cycleway would be inappropriate for this street.
