Looks like a pavement, but this is the Cycle Superhighway that will run from Leeds to Bradford More on

That's one of the flaws – looks too much like the pavement! Should be red Tarmac. East to get.

Actually I heard the opposite: coloured tarmac v hard to get, non slip covering £££ and rubbish for riding

has confirmed red Tarmac isn't gold dust. Red works fine in NL, why wouldn't it work in UK?

County Durham used to be paved with the stuff! Maybe the team aren't shopping in the right quarries...

Coloured tarmac seems to have been easy enough for the new paths in Cambridge.

Highway maintenance budgets cut -> huge reluctance to do other than black bitmac.

PS note use of "bitmac" (general term) not "tarmac" (proprietary name)

Any idea what material this is? Should I refer LA to your blog on surfaces? Will it help them?

it's basically red antiskid and I bet it is crap to ride on! All together now "machine laid red 55/10 HRA"

You might find this amusing. Someone's response council sent them about the surface in these images
