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 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.

Interesting... This document: https://transport.southampton.gov.uk/me ... -final.pdf linked to from the web page does indeed split some of the routes at the central hub, and of course introduces some renumbering....Peter350 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 12, 2019 17:51I'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.
