The main motivation of bureaucrats responsible for transport "planning" in Cambridge is hatred of drivers. A perfect example of this is a cycle lane on Roxburgh Road in King's Hedges.

Some bureaucrat obviously thought it would be amusing to put a cycle lane down the middle of the road (which is a cul-de-sac). So technically, it seems, cars cannot drive up this road except in the car parking lanes. There is a special place in hell reserved for bureaucrats who are so obviously disdainful of the people they are supposed to serve. Unfortunately, meanwhile they are rewarded with never having to be held accountable for their "planning", and then being given a big fat pension when they retire, paid for by the very people they continually stick two fingers up to.
