Photo listing: temporary closures (problem)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

Make this stretch of road 30mph, it would be safer for motorists, cyclists and the herd of cows that use the road from time to time!

Extra traffic calming to reduce the excessive driving speeds in village

Weight restriction signs are turned the wrong way

Zebra crossing to access bus stops

Zebra crossing for school kids

Zebra crossing for people to access bus stop

Make Church Road a No through road to improve safety

Make Church Road a ‘No through’ road!!

Dangerous for cyclists to cross road due to speed of vehicles approaching from both directions on barrow street

Lots of signs about the one-way closure of East Road due to a sinkhole - totally ignoring the fact that the cycleway is open as usual. Sadly predictable.

Lots of signs about the one-way closure of East Road due to a sinkhole - totally ignoring the fact that the cycleway is open as usual. On the plus side, Gonville Place and Lensfield Road were virtually traffic-free in this direction, so … [more]

Cyclists (and cars) need a light controlled junction here. Exit visibility is poor and speeds/volume high!

Treated as a shortcut to get Station road. Car wizz off Rodney road and visibility for pedestrian is bad when cross with children on the way to school. Pedestrian crossing or a one way road might help.

Even though this is a 20 mph zone, cars still speed along it and even mount the pavement. It's dangerous when walking my children to school.

Slow down traffic past school - 20 mph - www.20splenty.org

Rat run

Vehicles have hit and damaged the village pump here. You can see the damage on the wall. Better signage required to warn drivers of the narrow width and to give pedestrians right of way.

Slow down traffic through the narrow bit. I've seen people get hit by cars as they go too fast and don't see pedestrians.

Slow down traffic through the narrow bit. I've seen people get hit by cars as they go too fast and don't see pedestrians.

With the bypass the A371 will become a 20mph zone. The length of High Street which runs through a residential area should also become a 20mph zone.

Signposting to limit size of vehicles going up high street. There's a signpost at the well with a 3.5 tonne weigh limit, but I regularly see larger vehicles squeezing up high street.

This part of high street is narrow, queing traffic using it as a shortcut always block the path making it difficult for pedestrians and dog walkers.

The temporary pedestrianisation of Old Church Road here is a total failure. Car users show little or no respect for this restriction and often speed through this section of road to The Triangle. A suggestion to make it less attractive as a … [more]

The signs at the end of Station Road (which is pedestrianised) show that the pedestrian zone ends there when in fact it does not. The right turn is onto Old Church Road which is also (theoretically) pedestrianised for most of the day. This … [more]

Parking both sides of Lake Road causes congestion. Lake Road & Esplanade Road should be one way system.

Dreadful junction with cars parking too close to the junction. Extension of yellow lines is required.

I can't see how else to disagree. Keep cars away from elsewhere and keep them on Queen's Road, so no cycleway and keep 40mph limit

Cars driving too fast around a blind bend with cars parked on both sides of the road. 20 MPH

Improved strawberry line

Improve access to strawberry line

This area is the narrow part of the High Street. It is a rat run for people avoiding traffic on West street in Banwell. People drive extremely dangerously - yesterday a fellow dog Walker was hit ( I was a witness) as a car charged down the … [more]

High Street, Banwell is used as a short cut when the main road (A371) is busy. Traffic speeds along High Street, which is used a lot by pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. A 20mph limit and other traffic calming measures should be in … [more]

With the bypass the A371 will become a 20mph zone. The length of High Street which runs through a residential area should also become a 20mph zone.

Prevention of cars parking in and around school entrance which endangers children accessing safely.

20 mph limit and weight limit to stop very heavy diesel trucks (such as quarry lorries) coming through the village

National speed limit yet no pavement and can be dangerous for pedestrians. Reduce the speed limit on narrow roads.

This road has a very narrow walkway and a 40 speed limit, which makes both cycling and walking unsafe, please can you consider lowering the speed to 30. There are numerous big accidents on the crossing of belmont hill/clevedon road which … [more]

The 20mph speed limit needs to be mandatory and lengthened further either side of the present distance. Footpaths are dangerously narrow in places and it is irresponsible to wait for someone to be killed.

Hill Road doesn’t need more pavement space. It needs more parking to prevent bottlenecks in the road.

Introduce double yellow lines at junction of Hallam and Albert Roads. Need to prevent cars parking dangerously close to junction.

Speeding traffic - introduce 20mph

This is a FOOTpath. Cyclists can get off and walk, it isn't far. Add more barriers at bottom end. [shown as a cycleway on OpenCycleMap]

Reduce traffic speeds after the straight sections after Kennmoor Rd - deathtrap to walk/cycle here at present

Rat run at school times - make a dead-end/liveable neighbourhood.

20mph zone or 30mph enforcement as speeds of well over 40mph are common on this busy residential road

Stop children at Kingsdown getting hurt when crossing road. Make another pair of traffic lights here.

Traffic speed turning left from Mill Lane into High Street is unsafe due to parked cars on the high street after the bend, this risks head on collision with traffic moving east along high street. Amendments to the corner would slow traffic … [more]

Traffic speeding into Caswell Lane en route to Portishead makes it unsafe for pedestrians as there is no footway. Traffic calming needed.

Horrible road to try and cross - could do with traffic lights or zebra crossing

The part of the road from Gordano School till the Town council offices has a speed limit of 30 instead of 20.

Too many cars and too little space. No idea how to solve that

Business Development managers who are taking over The Battleaxes, want to access Wraxall Village Club. This brings economic benefits to both organisers. People are frightened to use it because of traffic speeds and lack of any safe zones.

Speeding issue. We need a warning sign for people going over speed limit

Introduce 20mph speed limit. Maybe put in one-way system so that pavements can be widened

20mph

People drive extremely fast

Through traffic accessing the moor to Clevedon, too many vehicles rat running through this route where there is no pavement provision. Walking and cycling should be a priority over motorised vehicles. Vehicle speeds should be 20mph where … [more]

Excessive through traffic often at speed make this route unattractive for cycling and walking to school. Access should be for properties only with a barrier allowing cycles and pedestrians only to pass through.

High levels of through traffic make cycling and walking in this rural area unattractive. Reduce through traffic to improve safety and atractiveness for walkers, cyclists and equestrians

Too many cars use this route as a cut through. I reguarly use this route as a cyclist and am often forced to dismount of pull in to the verge to allow oncoming cars and vans to pass. Place a barrier in road to prevent through access to … [more]

Busy road should be access only or one-way between High Street and Leisure Centre. Space could be reallocated to for wider pavements or cyclists.

This road is a dead end and is chaos at school pick up time, with cars trying to turn and pass each other and often a delivery van or two. My children haven't even been safe on the (narrow and incomplete) pavements at times, with cars … [more]

Remove the ridiculous 20mph speed limit on a major route into and from town

Speeding traffic. Traffic calming measures to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

Wolvershill is a mess, dangerous conditions and unclear passing places on a busy incline. The stretch past Court Farm is a wingmirror graveyard.

20 mph from here down Farnborough Road, down Upper Weybourne Lane, along Alma Way

Parked cars are the only protection for pedestrians from sometimes very fast moving traffic. Some residents avoid this, their main route to and from the village, as it is so dangerous. Removing the right to park to widen the pavements would … [more]

30 mph limit needed across the common to ensure safer walking for people, not priority for fast cars.

Need a 30 if not 20mph limit past the cafe and car park to prioritise people with children and horses, not fast drivers.

Letter through door today. Pedestrian and cycle bridge on Kingsbury Rd to be closed from 19 December. No indication when work to be done. Major active travel route. It's on CS1. @IslingtonBC @RowChampion https://t.co/WAUR4JPn4M Used to … [more]

Built up residential area. Speed should be reduced to 20mph

Need signalised crossing point here - very dangerous to cross with cars racing from the two-lanes-into-one on A38/A4174 Lime Kiln Roundabout south-east onto A4174 Colliters Way. Also need pedestrian phase on other side of this SE-arm of the … [more]

Replace traffic lights that should never be used on two residential roads. Consider Bollards or other means to discourage through traffic at ALL hours of the day.

2.5 Million vehicles a year rat-run along this residential road. There are 30 separate traffic calming measures including traffic lights (yes on two residential roads that cross!!). This does not work. Pollution is the highest of any … [more]

Warning markings needed on road to warn cars coming around the blind bend under the railway to expect cyclists turning onto the road ahead.

Road should be max 40mph not 60mph. Narrow with passing places and too much fast driving.

Speed limit should not increase to 60mph and at most go up to 40mph. Narrow road and wide 4x4 cars.
