Timperley nr Manchester . A cycle lane and a segregated cycle lane are discontinued just when it's needed the most . At the junction the rider is expected to rejoin the road largely unseen and in danger of being left hooked or head on colli ... [more]

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.

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

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

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.

Altrincham - Dunham Road to Racefield Road and Groby Road dropped kerbs required to allow cyclists to avoid busy Dunham Road and a route to/from John Leigh Park

OldTrafford Manchester a desire line has developed here . There is a space for a short cycle path to by-pass the complex traffic lights. Dropped kerbs would help as well as a hard surface to avoid mud forming.
