The existing cycling provision is not fit for purpose, sometimes shared pavement, others a bit of paint on the road, ending with no warning near Rufford pub, full of cars parked in other places. A much better separated lane is needed for t ... [more]

Widen to make a cycle path

Safe crossing for cyclists and pedestrians required at this high speed roundabout.

Access to car park for cyclists to enable safe cycling to/past the station without needing to cycle along Ashburnham Road, the A5141

This spot has, for decades, been the worst gap in Bedford's cycle network. They have allocated money for a separate cycle bridge - it is urgently needed.

Need a dropped kerb so cyclists can get down Northam Road without jumping a kerb

End current ban on town centre cycling by responsible cyclists. At present responsible cyclists are punished (or deterred), while those who are cycling recklessly and dangerously get away without punishment.

On Burton Road between the traffic lights at Abbey Street and the start of the Bus Lane just after Gerard Street cycle have to cycle in the middle of the road to avoid parked car doors and all the potholes in the centre of the traffic lane. ... [more]

Cycle way

Extend cycl path between jennets park and Waterloo road

Sign missing for cycle route here.

Dedicated cycling infrastructure needed to enable cycling between Edwinstowe and Mansfield

Dedicated cycling infrastructure needed to enable cycling between warsop & mansfield

Quite a large business park with cars parked everywhere & narrow pavements - no dedicated cycling infrastructure.

Cycle lane has cars parked along it so unusable. Place red double lines to prevent parking or add cycle path along pavement

Remove metal kissing gate here to improve access.

Change priority here ... give right of way to traffic on Curzon Rd

Install a dedicated cycle lane along the full length of leeming lane / woodhouse road to allow people to cycle in and out of mansfield.

Cars too fast here ... suggest 20mph

Cycleway down final part of Shoppenhangers from Ludlow Raod to Station or onwards on Route 4.

Cycle paths should be consistent and have a true start and end, so many cycle paths are just a white line painted on an existing road that often abruptly end randomly and make the cyclist have to navigate potholes, drains, parked cars and h ... [more]

Exit from Lexden Road advisory cycle lane to Crouch street poor and needs revision.

Blind crested corner isn’t safe for cars to overtake bikes. Double white lines/no overtaking.

Cycle access to the Station from Grenfell Road without having to go on dual carriageway.

Cycle lanes here please to enable cyclists to go round roundabout without danger to life and limb, to access High street and top part of Sea Road.

Far too many cars parked on pavements, narrowing & making it impossible to socially distance

Cycleway along Boyn Hill Avenue needed.

Maybe a cycle lane here or speed restriction 20mph. Policing required to prevent illegal parking on lh side going towards Boscombe centre

Road suffers from speeding (have seen people doing 50 mph + regularly during lockdown). Needs further traffic calming, and addition of cycleway (at least on the uphill section). Space can be created by removing central hatching.

Two blind corner crested hills make for an unsafe road and car users are sometimes difficult about it. Double white lines all the way and no overtaking signs and maybe a cycle path could help here.

Footpath needs to be widened to become a mix pedestrian and cycle route. Too over grown with shubs and too fast traffic to ensure safety

Since the roundabout was widened, this point has become impossible to cross. Drivers turning left from Dereham Rd (city-bound) onto Sweet Briar Rd often do not use indicators and it feels very unsafe to cross

Test

Make it easier to turn into the cut through - poor surface and a barrier close to the opening - need a redesign

Facilitate cycling around this corner, crossing Holdenhurst and cycling down Curzon Road.

It would be great to have a continuous cycle lane from the train station, passing through the town centre, up to the riverside and connecting to the cycle routes from the Green Way

On road cycle path is both poor, and in apoor state of repair (paint worn away etc.). Needs upgrading to make it safer and more visible, as can be dangerous during rush hour.

Cycle lanes on approach and exit to this roundabout. Warnings to motorists to slow right down.

Remove a parking space on x road and allow cyclists to cycle through

Lots of cyclists in this area, the shared path should be converted to a dedicated cycle and dedicated pedestrian lane, to ensure pedestrians can have a safe space to walk

This industrial park is dangerous to cycle with HGVs travelling fast and cars parked on both sides of the road making it very narrow. Double yellow lines should be considered all the way down to ensure people can travel safely to work in ... [more]

Needs a cycle path or footpath from Boxted cross to roundabout

The pavement here should be widened and a cycleway or shared use path is required to allow cyclists to travel this road - there is no alternative route for cyclists and the road is very dangerous for a cyclist to ride

No Cycle access at all from Newton Abbot to Tiegnmouth

Narrow road due to new car parking - this area should be reduced to 20mph continuing the 20mph area on the other end of Waterworks Rd

Parking is required for cycles at the Cathedral Retail Park

Please put the cycle path on the road and the parked cars ‘on the grass verges’ (lattices on grass).

There is sufficient room for a cycleway here, potentially the advisory-only kind to ensure there is still room for the delivery vehicles which service the industrial park

Please fit covered bike stands 🙏🏻

I would put some cycle storage at the bottom of the hill. So people can cycle to town and then park their bikes safely and walk the last bit to town.

Please make it wider for all to use. 🙏🏻

The current on road painted cycle lanes do not provide safe space for active travel you are mixing with motorway speed traffic and the narrow painted lanes promote dangerous close passes. A popup lane here would enable safer active travel o ... [more]

This junction is dangerous, there is a pedestrian crossing creating a pinch point for drivers and cyclists. Signage here asking drivers NOT to Overtake cyclists through this section would improve this.

Existing cycling infrastructure at bottom of Cavendish lane is exceptionally poor quality, and uses very narrow shared paths. The road very wide at this point, so space could easily be reallocated away from vehicles to create good cycling i ... [more]

Reconnect St John's Green to Queen Street with a two-way cycleway.

The current on road painted cycle lane are not safe, they encurrage close passes and they also abruptly end. The road width here is wide enough to accommodate a segregated pop-up lane the entire length towards the to the Much Hoole roundabo ... [more]

Contraflow lane for cycles. They work in London and have a good safety record.

The road width along here is wide enough to accommodate a pop-up lane the entire length towards the the bridge to the Bretherton roundabout to make it safer for active travel from Burscough or Southport to Preston.

Make Brook Street one-way for motor traffic and create a two-way cycleway in the other lane.

At this narrow bridge, signage advising drivers NOT to Overtake cyclists would make this safer for active travel from Burscough or Southport to Preston.

The road width along here is wide enough to accommodate a pop-up lane the entire length towards the Much Hoole roundabout to make it safe for active travel from Burscough or Southport to Preston.

The shared path / cycle track ends here. A pop-up lane the entire length towards the A59 lights here would make it safe for active travel from Southport to Preston.

This is a speeding hotspot, both in and out of the village. With the existing industrial estate, and a second one in planning, this is too dangerous for children to cycle to school. The pavement is not fit due to numbers of parents/children ... [more]

Replace the overbridge here please! The new crossing is awful - you have to wait twice to turn right from king henry -> anglesea building

This entire stretch from the Devon Motel at Marsh Barton is too narrow, very poorly maintained and down right dangerous. If instigated properly, it would be great commuting route to the South/East sides of Exeter

Road is to narrow to accommodate cars, bikes and buses in both directions. Perhaps Putney High Street could have cycle lane plus contraflow or one way for cars.

This entire stretch from the Devon Motel at Marsh Barton is too narrow, very poorly maintained and down right dangerous. If instigated properly, it would be great commuting route to the South/East sides of Exeter

A route to bypass Straight Road - which is horrible to cycle down as it’s narrow and busy - could be built around the existing bridleways along the old Dyke system - properly signposted and linked up from Lexden Rd to Peartree Rd.

Allow cycles to enter Adair Rd northbound

Current cycle lane is potentially dangerous especially on approach to this blind bend - have encountered cars coming around the corner on the wrong side of the road due to poor lane discipline and overtakes on the bend.

Remove the stupid gate here

Replace narrow footbridge with a cycleway/pedestrian bridge which can be ridden across without dismounting. Will also allow disabled access across this bridge (currently steep stairs and narrow).

Remove on street parking here to allow space for segregated cycle lane on a key route to Cheney School, Brookes University and the hospitals (including the nurseries there). There is no need for street parking on Morrell avenue as all house ... [more]

Stop contracted roadworks putting signs in the cycleway attached to the pavement.

Contraflow cycle lane to allow southbound travel to avoid Devonshire Square junction/humps

This should not be a 60mph road. Reduce the limit to 30 to encourage more cycling and walking (the speeds at which vehicles thunder down mean using the footpath is not a pleasant experience). Consider introducing segregated, protected cycle ... [more]

Road is wide enough for dedicated cycle lanes along the western half of Westdale Lane. This would encourage more people to cycle with their children to the nearby schools. Nearly all houses along this section of the road have driveways; ... [more]

There is ample room for a cycle lane heading north, uphill if the parking bays were suspended

It's too narrow. Use some of the large hatched area on the road.

The speed limit should be reduced from 40mph to 30mph to make cycling safer on this road (which is surrounded by housing). If possible there should be some examination of the possibility of introducing a dedicated cycleway.

Four lanes are dedicated to traffic in the Plains shopping area. Therefore there is space to introduce dedicated cycle (or bus & cycle lanes) to encourage more active transport as we exit lockdown and ensure that traffic does not increase u ... [more]

The shared use path on Plains Road between Westdale Lane and Gedling Road is too narrow to support social distancing. The road is easily wide enough here to add bike lanes in both directions.

Opportunity to link Ancrum Rd to Ninewells via segregated cycle route on Glamis Rd/Ninewells ave.

Insufficient width for shared use path here - should be widened and walking/cycling segregated.

The whole of Newton Hall estate should be 20mph zone as has been implemented in Gilesgate estate. Currently unsafe for cyclists and appalling for children playing.
