Overhanging on Kickety Brook path are obstructing the path at a dangerous eye level. At at least 3 locations to the East of the main A56. One of the branches has broken or is cut leaving a very dangerous point for gouging eyes.
Bizarrely the Trafford service request portal does not show this path (NCN route 62) as a right of way. Request ID:1532464 15/12/19

111239Photo #111239Urmston Eden Sq car Park has some bike stands . It's not clear whether they are to be used for motorbikes or cycles . The lack of clarity may be why some people have decided to stack trolleys here. Some signage to state the purpose of the stands would help. Horizon Parking will be proud that this car park is to Park mark standard . Nevertheless there can be further improvements.
According to www.britishparking.co.uk/Safer-Parking-Scheme-/-Park-Mark cycles are also covered by the park mark standard. @Safe_Parking

I sent a query to Eden Sq Hello
www.edensquare-shopping.co.uk/contact-us

I visited the parking at Eden Sq Urmston. In the SW corner there are a number of bike stands. On the day of my visit a number of supermarket trolleys had been deposited there. Can you let me know if the Park Mark standard refers to the cycle parking as well for cars ? www.britishparking.co.uk/Safer-Parking-Scheme-/-Park-Mark Would it be possible to post notices to remind people of the use of these bike stands ?

The car park is owned by National Trust. Consequently legitimate users are deprived from using NCN62 TPT. The latest Highways England standard OCT 2016 www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/dictionary/access-barrier states that these barriers must not be used at all, because they prevent access by various types of cycle, as well as other types of mobility aid, including wheelchairs and mobility scooters. This barrier needs widening and hi viz attached to barrier. widened enough to allow cyclists to cycle through but prevent illegal motor car accessOther:

The gap between bollards is only 1.05 metres and the distance measured diagonally is less than 1.2 metres measured at right angles it's even less at 1.05 metres. The reflective strips on the bollards are useful. These bollards have been placed close to a bend.
The spacing of these bollards does not meet the standard recommended in local transport note

From LTN 2/08 www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/329150/ltn-2-08_Cycle_infrastructure_design.pdf
8.14.4 Bollards are the preferred method of access control for larger vehicles, spaced a minimum of 1.2 metres apart, preferably 1.5 metres. For an additional deterrent effect, they can be installed as two staggered rows with a minimum 1.2 metres between rows (see Figures 8.5 and 8.6). Bollards should ideally be placed at least 5 metres from any bend or junction, so that riders can approach them straight on. Bollards can be hazardous on unlit routes and at sites where forward visibility is restricted by the layout or by other users.

105497Photo #105497Timperley Brooks Drive . The horse stile remains unused. Wouldn't it be better to make the bollard spacing wide enough for the biggest horse but narrow enough to prevent motor car access . Horse riders are using the space between the bollards. Obviously a lot better than the original kissing gate locked gate and horse stile. But it could be whole lot better and welcoming to adapted cycles.Other:

105488Photo #105488Timperley nr Manchester . A cycle lane and a segregated cycle lane are discontinued just when it's needed the most . At the junction the rider is expected to rejoin the road largely unseen and in danger of being left hooked or head on collision from Right turning vehicles.
Simple solution and easy win is a dropped kerb and parallel crossing at the junction .

Tried my best by using similar language but have decided to ignore as this twitter user is not prepared to try harder.Cycle parking:

104466Photo #104466Altrincham Hospital. Do the NHS really believe they are encouraging active travel ? UPDATE
25/9/19 Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust have reversed there earlier statement. They are now saying that cyclists cannot use the cycle facility in the basement due to health and safety concerns (mainly the ramp and the barriers #111023 which they claim do not detect cycles ; which I can say they DO !! see #111023 ) UPDATE 19/6/19 No evidence of a signage survey and not only that a patient at Altrincham Hospital was denied access to the cycle parking facility in the basement. UPDATE May 2019 the Foundation Trust have been awarding green rewards to their employees for engaging in sustainable travel . Would the trust consider rewarding their customers by at least providing decent cycle parking ? aboutmanchester.co.uk/manchester-university-nhs-foundation-becomes-first-nhs-trust-to-launch-green-rewards/ UPDATE 16/1/19 There is to be a signage survey UPDATE There is, however, a facility in the basement, down the ramp, in the farthest corner, for cycle parking sufficient for about 10 cycles available to both staff and visitors with direct access into the hospital (stairs & lift, through security door). but there is NO SIGNAGE TO INDICATE !!!! The entrance has a large planter outside which is the perfect place for cycle parking as the pavement is wide. The planter is looked after by Friends of John Leigh Park. A bar could be attached to the planter on 2 sides to allow parking similar to St Ann's church MCR. #102025 . When attended the hospital the comment was that there is cycle parking but it's on the other side of the road requiring 2 busy roads to cross. Most cyclists will choose to park secured to the barrier. Would be much better in a location that is near to the entrance as recommended in all guidance . Signs saying cyclist welcome would be a good idea . Also walking and cycling promtion such as signs for the Bee Network - Walking and cycling local network planning (formerly known as GM Beelines Proposals) the new Bee Network branding all over www.tfgm.com/made-to-move
Feedback has been sent to www.nhs.uk/about-the-nhs-website/pages/feedback.aspx Their twitter address is @MFTnhs
Latest reports suggest that cycling and walking must be prioritised twitter.com/NICEcomms/status/1081090352184987648 This would be a good way.

Queues along this road to access the @NT_NorthWest park here . Action can be taken to reduce this demand see also #104219 queues on the road to the car park to the @nationaltrust Hall here @NT_NorthWest .

From Woodhouse Lane to the car park entrance this footpath is not used by pedestrians - they use the park path. Cycling could be allowed here but don't place no waiting cones on the footpath and clear the leaves. Also when the road is resurfaced nice and smooth do the path as well !

Would be good if cycles were allowed in the park as well along designated paths as in Tatton Park.

On a busy day this bridge has large queues as only one direction at a time is possible. This crossing is not fit for purpose and will not allow a single pram buggy let alone a double buggy or a wheelchair.
