155076Photo #155076A widened, shared, pavement/cycleway is required along Lincoln Road, between the Skellingthorpe roundabout and the Sustrans Route 64, where it crosses the Lincoln Road.
At present there is a rather narrow, poorly surfaced pavement along one side of this road. Cyclists use the pavement because the road is narrow and fast-moving motor traffic makes cycling on the road dangerous.
Provision of this pavement/cycleway would make access to the Sustrans route 64 much safer from the Birchwood, Swanpool, Hartsholme areas of Lincoln.
The present B1378 (Skellingthorpe Road) which becomes the Lincoln Road after crossing the A46, is already a pavement/cycleway between the A46 and the Tritton Road (A1192).

155062Photo #155062The short and unusually-shaped approx 20 metre back lane between Market Lane and Long Rigg Road suffers from drivers turning quickly and dangerously into it at both ends. There’s not much safe space for pedestrians as the pavement is very narrow . Make it a non through road for traffic. It could be split in the middle, creating loading and unloading parking spaces for the businesses there.Track:

155061Photo #155061Crossing Market Lane near the Swalwell roundabout is like taking your life in your hands. Drivers come off the roundabout too fast and unpredictably, as you can’t always predict where they are going as there are so many exists, and the road surface of the roundabout is ridiculously over-sized. A proper central pedestrian refuge island and possibly a zebra crossing is needed on Market Lane, and the existing island probably needs to extend further east. Drivers also come down Market Lane too fast. So perhaps speed humps are need for both directions.Track:
Problem
track
155060Photo #155060A better way for pedestrians to cross the entrance and exit dual-carriageway road to the A1 at the Swalwell roundabout is needed. The northbound should be reduced to one lane, as it quickly narrows to one lane anyway, by building out the kerbs. The southbound exit road should be split by having a central island between the two lanes, similar to the one in the middle of the one-way road at Metrocentre (St Michael’s Way, east of American Golf). NB If the entrance carriageway is narrowed, that may give sufficient land to widen the exit carriageway and so make it easier for the central pedestrian island to be put in.Track:

155054Photo #155054A central pedestrian refuge is needed at the east end of Sands Road, at the Swalwell roundabout. It’s currently quite scary crossing here partly because the roundabout is so large (in terms of road surface on which you can drive) and drivers seem to think they can drive all over the place, and do. Also it’s a five ir six way junction, with two of those being dual carriageways. Perhaps the path to the river, that leads down the left (west) side of the access road to the A1, can be improved as well. Better pedestrian crossing facilities are needed on some of the other roads meeting at this roundabout, too.Track:
Problem
track
155053Photo #155053It’s dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists around the junction of Market Lane and Napier Road (which is quite busy because it is one of the few ways in by car to a huge area of housing). The main cause is people parking close to the junction on both roads. This in turn causes drivers turning out of Napier Road in a rushed fashion, because they have a major blind spot, i.e. they cannot see what’s travelling west along Market Lane, and thus they aren’t on the lookout for crossing pedestrians. There is a taxi office very close by, so taxis are frequently arriving and departing whatever parking positions they can find although usually there is sufficient space very close by or on Napier Road itself. Solutions- Double yellow lines are needed close to the junction. A middle refuge island is needed at the bottom (north end) of Napier Road, to help pedestrians going east-west. Appropriately placed outcrops and bollards are needed to discourage selfish parking.Track:

155052Photo #155052Mock-up of a idea to improve access to the footway cycle parking.

Motor vehicles often park right up or overhang the buildout and this creates problems of access to our front door as these other photos show: #6501 and #106944.

The ramp would be something like the one at Trumpington Street #155073 or another example is Marmora Road where there's a dropped kerb within the build-out at #155071.

The marked parking bay is 6.5 metres long, which means that a ramp 1.5 metres wide could be sited here and still leave enough length for a standard car parking space of 5 metres.

155032Photo #155032The roads in this area are B roads. They are narrow, poorly maintained and are used as a rat run daily by high levels of fast moving traffic, which includes an unacceptable number of HGVs.
There are no options to widen the roads or the junctions on Glenside South, North or the junction at The Approach due to the existence of residential buildings along the river. There have been several accidents, serious injuries and fatalities on both Glenside South and North, predominantly due to speeding vehicles (speed limits are generally ignored).
The only option in this area is to prohibit vehicles over 7.5 tonnes (there are perfectly good alternative routes which can cope with this type of traffic) and further restrict the speed limit. It is currently at NSL in several places which is totally inappropriate for this type of road. The junction at The Ship Inn needs better signage and the 30mph speed limit needs to be continued further onto both sides of the river.
It is fully understood that farm vehicles need access and that is accepted as we live in a rural area, they do not present the same risks as larger lorries and are less frequent. They also have a higher regard for other road users.

155026Photo #155026Glenside South is a narrow road in poor condition used as rat-run, even though better routes exist. Often lorries have to stop to pass each other as they are too BIG for this road.
It has housing on one side, yet carries excessive HGV traffic 24/7 - the majority of which is not accessing local businesses, despite claims to the contrary.
Glenside South is subject to constant speeding and there have been a surprising number of fatalities and severe injuries due to RTIs in recent years. Recently a cyclist was critically injured by a speeding car that did not give way from Glenside South to Northgate at the Ship Inn junction. The air ambulance is a regular visitor and most residents have assisted as first-responders at incidents.
Traffic routinely mounts pavements and drives over front gardens and verges due to the narrowness of the road. I have lost my front wall due to this.
What few pavements exist on Northgate are in exceptionally poor condition - damaged, uneven, muddy and overgrown, so it is easier to walk in the road, albeit more dangerous.
Drink-driving is the norm around here - it's a rural area, with many overseas workers, and the police are effectively invisible.
Residents are afraid to walk and cycle here, so most don't - adding to the issues.
With the construction of a new relief road to the south of Pinchbeck, it is time to relieve the village of its rat-run status: we have schools, and many elderly residents; lives have already been lost, and the excess traffic is damaging infrastructures and homes, polluting the air and water, and damaging the natural environment. Children walk to school along Glenside south, there is no pavement or lighting. Our house shakes from the thundering speed of hgv.
Making these roads Access Only will be the cheapest improvement to implement, and have by-far the widest range of benefits to the greatest number of people, not least because it will improve matters throughout the entire village, not just Glenside South.
Thank-you.

NB1: residents are cognisant of the needs of local farming businesses to access these roads, and fully accept them - it is through-traffic which needs to be stopped.

NB2: this issue affects the entire length of Glenside South as well as adjoining roads such as Glenside North and Northgate.

155025Photo #155025Footpath/cycle lane is too narrow for more than one user, meaning that to pass oncoming users or to overtake, someone has to move over to the grass. As someone who both runs down this path and cycles down it to work at RAF Waddington, I've suffered rolled ankles and flat tyres due to hidden dangers in the grass. This is a popular commuter path to RAF Waddington, and its expansion would result in a lot less traffic on the road, and alleviate some of the parking concerns on the station.Cycleway:
