The below table specifies the likely impacts of this option on various sections of road/path in Heavitree and Whipton:
  • A "Traffic-free route" is a section of path along which vehicular traffic is prohibited
  • A "Quiet route" is a section of road likely to be lightly-trafficked, due to modal filter(s) closing the route to through traffic, meaning it is likely to be suitable for most cyclists
