Most of the markers already in existence have disappeared or are so faint as to be useless

Need a cycle path from Cross Houses to Weeping Cross, Shrewsbury.

Create a segregated cycle lane from Shillingford to Sandford to allow commuters a safe option to cycle to and from Oxford to Wallingford. There is more than enough room on either side of the road, apart from Nuneham Courtenay. This route is ... [more]

To enable cyclists to travel safely along from this junction on A458 to B4473

Dangerous crossing point of A49 for walkers and cyclists, needs some decent traffic management

A fast narrow road with constant traffic. Also crossing the A5 is really dangerous. The road through Hanwood needs a cycle path.

Roundabout is dangerous to cross, traffic very fast. Difficult to cross on a bike, almost impossible on foot. Whole road from Caradoc View to the A5 is narrow, windy and busy - not safe to cycle on in either direction. A488 from A5 to R ... [more]

Old railway track with no right of way would make a safe path for people to walk cycle between cressage and Cound.

There is no safe path/road to cycle between Hanwood and Shrewsbury due to narrow roads and it is extremely dangerous trying to cross the A5 by foot or cycle to get into Shrewsbury. An underpass/flyover would be great!

Cycleway needed. No safe way to travel into town.

The derelict railway line between Hookagate and Hanwood could be turned into a safe cycle track and footpath for leisure purposes.

The road between Hanwood and Shrewsbury is too busy for cyclists to safely use. A cycle path would make the journey easily achievable by bike and cut down car journeys.

The road between Hanwood and Shrewsbury is too busy for cyclists to safely use. A cycle path would make the journey easily achievable by bike and cut down car journeys.

Accumulated mud has left only a narrow stretch of this shared use cycleway available.

Reopen old road as cycle way towards Tobermory

Cycle path needed on road from Craignure to Loch Buie turn to enable children to safely cycle to school.

Create a cycle route along the coast from Carsaig to Loch Buie as part of a cycle route from Craignure to Iona.

Create a cycle route from Loch Buie to Carsaig as part of a Craignure to Iona cycle route.

A roads to Tobermory and Iona need parallel cycle routes as too much traffic and too fast especially in the summer holiday season. Such routes could be a tourist attraction in themselves opening up new routes and encouraging sustainable da ... [more]

As well as the proposal for making a path for pedestrians between Cross Houses and Atcham, there needs to be a cycle path too, which ideally should go to the Attingham Park entrance also.

Disused bus stop on Rauhehorst at Nedderend should provide cycleway link to Babenend with a counter-flow.

The missing link between Babenend and Nedderend.

As the A293 under path at the railway track has been lost, the city should construct a counter-flow segregated cycleway on the north-eastern side to connect Babenend with Nedderend. The carriageway on Rauhehorst here is 11 metres wide.

No safe access for cyclists or walkers from Cross Houses (pop. Circa 800) along A458 to Shrewsbury. A walking cycling route from Cross Houses to Weeping Cross Island on the outskirts of Shrewsbury along the disused railway line would remed ... [more]

The part of Sundorne Road that is for the residential frontages on the North side is relatively traffic free and good for cycling parallel to the B5062 from Albert Road to Allerton Road. But it needs road markings so that traffic entering ... [more]

Contraflow cycleway needed down Castle Street

This road is a nightmare for drivers and riders in the busy part of the day. If more people cycled Boston wouldn’t be such a bottle neck. If there is a traffic jam here you ride on the path, but the path is far to narrow to cater for ride ... [more]

With the Tiptree pump track here it makes sense to make it safer to cycle to it and a 20mph speed limit would be a good start.

I work down Skirbeck Road and I live on Riverside near Sluicebridge. The most direct route is through the town centre, which is ok if I’m going to work as you can go through the town centre. But when I’m coming home from work (Skirbeck ... [more]

Cycle/pedestrian route and new bridge needed to provide easy access to Agricultural Show Ground

Proper cycleway needed between old railway route and Sutton Farm Road on north side of B4380

Create new cycle route from Godsey Lane westward to Church Street. It will need to be designed to suit its parkland setting with an attractive surface and possibly low bollard type lighting

A shame not to have a double cattle grid here on the Chisholm Trail.

Dreadfully restrictive junction arrangement on the link between the Chisholm Trail and NCN route 51 - many people will be cutting across the grass to the right rather than turning so sharply on the asphalt.

Dreadfully restrictive junction arrangement on the link between the Chisholm Trail and NCN route 51.

Road traffic statistics suggests this road does not promote the use of cycles. https://roadtraffic.dft.gov.uk/manualcountpoints/60042 Heavy road usage with large numbers of HGVs and cycles (approx. 120 cycles / day)

Better policing of parking in cycleways. Eg Coventry Road cycleway in Market Harborough

Really needs a cycle path alongside the road which can get both congested and also be a raceway (at different times). Would link Tiddington and Alveston to Stratford town centre for cycle users, and also provide a safer link for school kids ... [more]

To encourage walking and cycling along this route which avoids a dangerous crossroads it should be a 20mph zone.

This road is ideal for cycling to take them away from the double roundabout and to encourage them along with walking it should be a 20mph zone.

This road already has a small section of cycle way so to make it safer and encouraging its use the road needs to be a 20mph zone.

With a community centre & elderly accommodation along with a primary school in the area this road should be part of a 20mph zone.

This road is used as a rat run and should be part of a 20mph zone to make it safer to walk/cycle.

This road is used as a rat run and should be a 20mph zone to encourage walking and cycling.

Need cycle lanes

Cycleway between here and Hope Bowdler - very fast moving traffic and only alternative is to go up a steep, steep climb

Cycleway or route through the nearby fields. Traffic is very fast moving here and it's a perfect road to get out towards the Longmynd. Would be nice to follow a similar route slightly further from the road all the way from Hope Bowdler into ... [more]

Cycle lane outside football stadium is currently a car park. Yes that's a public car park in the other side of that fence. https://t.co/W8blYMTpeI

These triangular panels do not fit correctly and are each only held in place by two bolts, whereas there are holes for four. I asked a pair of men in hi-viz about this and one of them said his team had added the cable ties in the other h ... [more]

Sections of public right of way are always overgrown. Provision of a proper cycle route needed to replace/widen existing path and gaps would help connect Bitterley and area into Ludlow for safe cycling in and out.

Cycle path to connect Bitterley and Middleton.

New road improvement at roundabout has no consideration for cyclists or pedestrians and has increased danger for cyclists in this area

Lack of safe pathway/cycle track between the three villages that make up this community of The Keal. Where there is a path in the villages then it is in sections requiring crossing the road to continue.

A one way system for traffic needed with a two directional cycle walkway.

This cycle way / active travel way requests cyclists to give way to vehicles crossing it to either join or leave the main road. Priority needs to be given to cyclists. Vehicles will need to pause and give way before entering main road anywa ... [more]

One way for cars, dual direction for bikes and pedestrans.

The good off road cycleway from Pontesbury ends here, very close to the start/end of the 30 mph zone for Minsterley so cars are often well over this limit so crossing the A488 here can be daunting. Dual use pavements for pedestrians and c ... [more]

A narrow road used by cyclists & pedestrians, no pavement. Review need for vehicles or make it one way only & 10mph. Signage to give priority to active travellers.

The demand for an active travelway between Pontesbury and Shrewsbury is high. A feasibility study has been done. The road is too narrow, fast and busy for cyclists to travel safely. The need is there for commuters (both students & workers), ... [more]

The ‘rat run’ continues up this road as a continuation from the northern section of Brookside. It is equally dangerous and needs the same attention to keep active travellers (included disabled people) safe. This rat run has developed du ... [more]

This road has become a ‘rat run’ following the increase in traffic up Hall Bank. It has no pavement & has narrow sections. It is used by cyclists & pedestrians (including families with wheelchairs and buggies). It is also an obvious rou ... [more]

[Image taken 3.1.22] Entrance to Nestle site, Wigginton Road, York. Clear segregation between peds and cyclists but look at the damaged ramp/tactile paving. This leads to the rural route through Bootham Stray (images from today: #177232, #1 ... [more]

Hertfordshire CC plan is for a two way cycle path on the westbound carriageway. Possibly by 2023.

Hertfordshire CC plan is for a two way cycle path on Hunters Bridge extending around this corner to Osborn Way and thence onto Stonehills. Possibly may be done by 2023.

New Herfordshire CC plan for a toucan crossing here to make access to Digswell Park Road possible in the rush hours.

New Hertfordshire county plan for a zebra which can be used by bikes here which wil create an off road link from Digswell Park Road to the stub of Hertford Road and then on to Harmer Green Lane.

Hertfordshire CC are going to work on the B197 axis in 2022 with a view to improving things for cycling. This is supposedly only possible if the SMART motorway goes ahead as the extra lane on the motorway then allows HCC to reduce the road ... [more]

Chicane here is only 122 cm at the critical point so below the 150 cm minimum width for LTN 1/20 and chicanes are bad for box bikes and trailers anyway. Needs removing.

There is plenty of room to make a segregated cycle path along Wyngate Drive. The road is not very safe for vulnerable road users here and it would reduce the number of bikes on the pavement.

Safe walking and cycling route on A39 between Lynton and Barnstaple would help reduce congestion in Barnstaple and give locals a safe route to get to the few bus stops.

First Blood! New graffiti on day 4. See #177043.

Dangerous chicane makes cycling difficult here.

Path too narrow & hoggin. Overgrown vegetation makes it even narrower in practice!

Track here barely wide enough to be a pavement, let alone shared use. Widen (chicane for motorists?) or drop the track round the back of La Folie.

Shared space means cyclists have to give way - remove the parked cars (go to Pier Road) and provide a dedicated track.

[UPDATE See: #177553.] [Image taken 23.12.21.] West Esplanade, York (west bank of the Ouse). [NOTE: No street view at this location.] Mud makes the cycle lane here slippery and unattractive. The sort of appearance and conditions that suppr ... [more]

Remove end of cycle route sign which everyone ignores anyway and you create an official cycle route at nil cost.

There is a long set of steps half way along the the cycle/footpath between Crownhill Rise and Shiphay Lane making it awkward for cyclists to carry their bikes and impossible for disabled people to pass this way.

Location not precisely set yet! Celebrating three years to the day since we moved to Scotland with a walk to the urban shopping dystopia that is Fort Kinnaird. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 https://t.co/ilpsRWDOwo

Cycle way to the station? could eventually link Witham Hughes and encourage residents to cycle to the station and then to work.

The path is narrow over crest. Cyclists sometimes forced to outside risking impact from lorry wing mirrors.

Proper cycle path needed from George junction on to Dartmoor - suitable for road bikes, not just family days out!

Consideration for cyclists turning across this junction

The pavement is too narrow for all users not just cyclists to use safely. It is an accident waiting to happen when someone gets knocked off the steep kerb onto the road. The pavement needs to be widened somehow and a barrier put in place to ... [more]

Some cycle parking, Sheffield stands or something. There are lots of places to park cars but no provision for bicycles.

A fast winding uphill road that needs cycling space. Probably signage as road isn’t wide for a path.

No designated cycle pathway yet a good route for all age cycle travel.

Burgh to Skegness cycle path far too narrow to be a cycle path, covered in thorns and very uneven, not even a good footpath ....

The cycle route towards Battersea Power Station leads straight into an underground vortex. There's a small cycle sign to the right but no obvious way to get there.

Pavement stops when leaving Braithwell. Could do with cycleway as road is very narrow (overgrown hedge mainly)

Cyclists having to share pavement with pedestrians.

Cyclists having to share pavement with pedestrians.

The new cycle track connecting the Tradeston Bridge to West Street. The route to the right is only for going to Paisley Road now, since the diagonal crossing at the Kingston Street junction has been removed and mandatory turn signs point to ... [more]

This section of Newark Road is heavily used by children cycling to and from school. It would benefit from a cycle lane and less parked cars in the area.
