The Stanmore to the Thames cycle route will cross this busy road (A404 Harrow Road) with a right and left turn. It would be better to have a toucan or zebra crossing here. This section of Harrow Road has no westbound cycle facilities, and … [more]

Entering Vale Farm sports ground. The barriers are unnecessary because there is a gap at the end. It would be useful to build a connection for cyclists from the road to the tarmac path on the left.

Subway under South Kenton station. Cyclists have to walk their bikes here because it can be busy with people going to and from the platforms, but the barriers seem excessive.

Entrance to pedestrian bridge over the West Coast mainline in Kenton. It would be useful if the bridge could be made wider to allow cycling as well.

Kenmore Avenue, a quiet street leading to Kenton Recreation ground.

The turning from Kenmore Avenue into Christchurch Avenue. Modifications will be required to encourage primary school children to cycle along this route. Perhaps the triangular traffic island could be removed and zebra crossings / cycle … [more]

Christchurch Avenue at the end of the Belmont Trail, showing its pedestrian-and-cycle unfriendly features (no pedestrian crossing near the mini roundabout, traffic island to put motorists into conflict with cyclists, 30mph speed limit). … [more]

The Belmont Trail (off-road route) ends on busy Christchurch Avenue, and cyclists have to travel along a short stretch of this road to reach Kenmore Avenue. It is hoped that children will use this route to cycle to Elmgrove primary school, … [more]

The signpost is already in place, but the path barely exists.

The Kenton end of the Belmont trail, on Christchurch Avenue. This may be upgraded as part of the planned Stanmore to the Thames cycle route.

The Belmont trail already has signposts, but much of the path is overgrown and not easily accessible. However there are plans to upgrade it.

The southern end of the Belmont trail is an overgrown dirt path. There are plans to upgrade it to a proper path with a 'sealed surface and stud lighting'.

Part of the Belmont trail which will have to be resurfaced, and should be made wider as well (as far as the trees allow).

Belmont Trail

Belmont Trail at Belmont Circle car park. Instead of going straight through the car park, it does a U turn and goes up a ramp.

Belmont trail bridge under Kenton Lane. Due to be upgraded as part of the proposed Stanmore to the Thames cycle route.

Part of the Belmont trail has been made into a car park. There is a fence here because the cycle path does a U-turn for a long ramp rather than going straight on (it continues at the other end of the car park). The height difference here … [more]

View from the end of the Belmont Trail. The trail is rough and muddy but there are plans to upgrade it, as part of the Stanmore to the Thames cycle route.

Wemborough Road, a 30mph road with narrow cycle lanes and traffic islands, and parked cars in some places. It is marked as a cycle route, but is not a good cycling environment. It requires removal of traffic islands, 20mph speed limit, and … [more]

A narrow path leading from Courtens Mews to Wolverton Road. This is part of a route through quiet roads around Stanmore Golf Course. The path is quite narrow and the entrance is concealed.

Marsh Lane, Stanmore. The cycle lanes are narrow and intermittent, and there are traffic islands which force motorists into conflict with cyclists. No zebra, pelican, puffin or toucan crossings for 1km. The guard rails are unnecessary. … [more]

Gates of Canons Park, off Marsh Lane. The path could be upgraded to provide a cycle route.

Looking into Canons Park. The path could be upgraded to a high quality shared use path. We propose this as an alternative greenway route to the planned route through Stanmore Golf Course, which is private land and will require a lot more … [more]

Turning left into Marsh Lane to go to Canons Park. Traffic islands, lots of traffic, not really pleasant to cycle on. However there are wide verges and short sections of service road which could be used to build high quality segregated … [more]

Near the start of the proposed Stanmore to the Thames cycle route. The proposed route turns right here, along Marsh Lane, a busy 30mph road with traffic islands to force motorists into conflicts with cyclists. This is not a pleasant and … [more]
