There is a conflict between horse riders and other path users as both a likely to use the unstepped gap . Far better to remove the A frame access There is little evidence that the horse stiles are being used at all .

Central Manchester . A short 50 yard section of Southmill Street has been made 1 way . Surely this is wide enough to allow 2 way cycling and a safer quiter route to Albert Sq.

Broadheath Altrincham nr MCR . Would be a nice direct route with a dropped kerb . Even better with 3 dropped kerbs for each path.

One of the consequences of installing barriers like this is severe degradation of the surface. I'd prefer the barrier to be removed completely, but a simple solution is a couple of bags of gravel.

As on the south side of the railway, barriers here encourage the growth of weeds that eventually make the path too narrow to be shared. The barriers should be removed, the overgrowth eliminated, and the path restored to the full width of t ... [more]

A good surface on this railway bridge. This route is very popular with pedestrians and cyclists, despite the barriers on either side.

A barrier encourages the growth of weeds on this approach to a walking/cycling bridge over the railway. These should be removed and replaced with a simple, single bollard.

The TPT in typically fine form.

Extremely poor surface on this road, with very deep potholes and poor lighting.

I'm not sure why the path is laid out this way but why can't we just cycle in a straight line, rather than have to weave through these obstructions?

An unreasonable layout here, probably due to the large gates. The path should be straight across, to avoid making these awkward turns.

Extremely narrow footway here is a safety issue, two cyclists cannot pass easily. Also, the low sun at evening time flickers through the fencing, which is a huge distraction.

Redesigning this junction to prioritise walking and cycling would help create a quiet alternative to the A56 Manchester Road.

Visit the new Krypton Factor studios in Dunham to find a series of fiendishly difficult barriers to cycling.

An upgraded surface here (camera right, looking northwest), would enable a safe means of crossing the motorway and getting to the Bridgewater Circle.

Potential for a continuous route here, enabling cycling on quiet roads between Carrington and Woodsend. Two footways required, with a central cycleway. There is enough space for this.

Potential for a good route from Carrington to Woodsend, this section would benefit from extended footways either side (there is space for this) and a central cycleway straight through.

Potential for a good route here between Carrington and Woodsend, quiet streets.

Potential route through here, needs obstructions removing and surface treating. Potential for slight widening by taking some of the allotment land.

A useful link south currently made illegal by the signage. Potential for slight widening by removing a metre of the allotment land, although there's enough room anyway.

Potentially useful link (moreso for pedestrians I think) westwards.

A potential route to Pennybridge Lane? Needs vegetation cutting back, barriers removing.

A potential short link to Balmoral Road? This route is streetlit.

Ridiculous obstructions that should be removed. The bollards should be replaced with something spaced further apart, so larger bicycles and tricycles can pass.

Very minor work required here to improve access from the street, to Pennylane Bridge.

Decent wide surface here, but it narrows as it heads to Higher Road. Could do with being widened to full extent of highway.

A poor quality exit from the bridge onto Railway Road. Should be a raised crossing with ped/cyclist priority. The current layout encourages collisions between pedestrians and cyclists.

Potential route across the railway bridge, between Higher and Railway Roads.

Very good potential route between Winchester and Canterbury Roads.

Potential cycle route to Lostock Road.

Potential exit onto Lostock Road, for a cycle route.

Part of the Lostock Road 1930s cycleway, in a very sorry state and blocked by illegally-parked vehicles.

A potential route to the Trafford Centre, needs a slightly wider track.

A potential cycling route across Davyhulme Park to the Trafford Centre.

A good path that needs clearing of debris and cutting back of overgrowth (which blocks the streetlights)

School run traffic on this otherwise quiet residential street, which would form part of an excellent route from Carrington to Woodsend.
