I did not know that Southampton has its own numbered cycle route network, SCN1-SCN9
It is numbered clockwise around the city with two additional orbital routes. It is more of a programme of targetted improvements because some of those roads are not good candidates for promoting cycling.

I've known about this for a while but seeing as it appears to be a hub-and-spoke radial network, I think it would be much more logical if the eastern sections of SCN 4, 2, 5, 3 and 1 were numbered SCN 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 respectively. I doubt there would be a huge amount of cross-city traffic using the entire lengths of the routes proposed.

Seems pretty good, If only more cities could be asked to have streets dedicated to cycles.
I had a look at some of the choke points on the routes, and it is as if the Local Council put in new cycle lanes before new legislation would block them. Looking and the lane widths and shared spaces, especially on the bridges and main roads.
