Nailsea school have closed the back entrance saying it is not safe. 20mph and a wider pavement would help ensure students are safer travelling to and from school.

I wonder whether if this path in Cluny Park had been maintained and upgraded to the same quality as the other paths in the same park that it would never have been allowed to be blocked by this contractor's compound.

School Street closure

Disappointment at discovering a closed bridge, for which there’s no advance warning ⚠️. It required a two-mile diversion and we met three other cyclists affected by this. This bridge has now been marked as closed in: … [more]

Salford Route 55 Tyldesley loop line branch. Road closed sign with no indication of a diversion. The path is closed under the East Lancs Road and will be for a while. At the very least there should be a sign saying follow diversion signs . … [more]

Rat run, width restriction required.

Northfield Road is used as a convenient rat run for people. Despite being marked as a 20mph zone at each end of the road people drive much too fast given there is no path for pedestrians and this is a shared user road. Pedestrians should be … [more]

Cyclists and pedestrians only, in theory - city police at a moveable barrier

Road closure past a school - pretty standard now in Paris

[NOTE: There were no advance or on-the-day warnings for this closure. This is likely because it is not a road so none is required. An example of motonormativity. But it is a critical and accessible – since Scarborough Bridge was remodelled … [more]

Road closure for Mazey Day - just another pagan festival in Penzance

Close Harts Lane running east of here to stop vehicles using it and so the route is only used for people to cycle and walk along.

Something needs to be done to stop people stopping in the zigzags in front of the school BEFORE someone gets killed.

Speeding cars ignore the smiley face signs. Needs proper speed cameras on this road.

Major parking issues on Sunday here with lots of double yellow parking "just for a minute". Should be pedestrianised.

There is frequent parking on double yellow lines here which reduces visibility and makes it very dangerous for children crossing the road to get to school. Increase patrol around drop-off time

Cars are parked on one side at all times. Bottleneck at peak hours as it becomes a one-way road. Please widen this road (from 2 to 3 lanes) or put a double yellow line. A temporary traffic light at peak times would also help. Cars can then … [more]

Car Park Here not marked

Traffic filter slowing cars as they approach the bend near the castle coming from Winscombe - there have been lots of accidents with people coming round the corner too fast

The pedestrian zone on this part of Swan Hill is ignored by a lot of drivers. Adding some actual enforcement here would stop rat running along narrow roads and encourage drivers to use more appropriate roads to access the town. Access … [more]

Drivers don’t stop at mini roundabout and cut corners at speed. So dangerous for us cyclists!

Alter the angle of the road to slow traffic better enabling elderly pedestrians crossing from Hammond Court and customers to businesses towards the gates.

Slow the traffic that races down Mendip Rd to bypass the congested high street

This part of West End Lane is single use and traffic drives too fast making it dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders.

Traffic travelling through Cleeve at 40 mph is dangerous and noisy. Some vehicles, including heavy lorries ignore the limit and thunder through the village, causing my rooms to vibrate!
