176247Photo #176247Beesby village is a low key rat run for some local traffic (including HGV's despite the warning signs at each end). It is mostly a single track road and has no footpaths at all. All this means that there is no safe place to walk or exercise without travelling elsewhere. Historically there was a 'footpath right of way' linking Fen Lane to the next village of Maltby. This is now farmland, but in my view the route could be re-established with minimal cost or disruption. I'm sure the same scenario exists elsewhere in the county too.Track:

176151Photo #176151This footpath section is littered with abandoned scrap cars that are used for drug dropoffs. It is environmentally hazardous and is encouraging fly tipping. Numerous children use this footpath as their means to getting to school and it is not fit for purpose.
Clear the junk cars that have been abandoned by the family who live there BUT Do Not Own the Land, yet claim they do. Check with the Parish council!!!!!

176150Photo #176150This is a crazy busy road, LGV's mixing it up with schoolchildren, mums with pushchairs, cyclists and angry SUV drivers. Wholesale changes need to be made to prevent carmageddon. The whole town centre from this point on jams up every day. Make it more pleasant for pedestrians and cyclists and less attractive for car drivers, restrictions on LGV's, smaller delivery vehicles can be used. This is a residential area, please help make it more pleasant. Can't believe you listened to the few complaints on the proposed cycle lanes earlier in the year, that was very disappointing. People need to be nudged to change behaviour. Your role as the local Highways Authority is to lead.Cycleway:

176149Photo #176149The pavement on Manilla Street has been badly damaged. This damage is adjacent to the large building site at the eastern end of the road. The pavement by the dropped kerb at the entrance to the building site is now so smashed that a wheelchair user would not be able to use this section. In addition, today (25.11.21) the pavement was completely blocked by the builders, but no ramp was provided for wheelchair or buggy users to get down on to the road to cross to the opposite pavement. A safe and accessible pavement is crucial on this street as it is used as a rat-run by drivers avoiding the roundabout on Marsh Wall and cars and vans regularly drive past at high speed. The pavement on each side is not very wide and an accident could occur if a pedestrian is forced into the street when a speeding van is coming through. More considerate building practices are needed by this company, wider pavement with adequate dropped kerbs needs to be maintained and speed checks need to be undertaken in this area, please.Track:

176148Photo #176148Dangerous road for cyclists, as cars speed along this road and pass very close.

A dedicated cycle lane is required to safely link Spalding and Pinchbeck.

This would allow adults to bike to and from Pinchbeck and school kids to safely cycle to schools reducing the need for parents to drive and inturn reduce emissions and congestion.

This could easily be accomplished by making the Spalding to Pinchbeck road one way, and then Wardentree Lane links back to Spalding (or bypass for heavy goods).

The other half of the Spalding to Pinchbeck road can then be converted to a dedicated cycle lane.

176147Photo #176147This road needs to be changed to stop people parking when kids are going to school and leaving.

Cars parking down this road, makes it very dangerous for kids to bike to school, and also dangerous for kids to cross roads.

Only a matter of time until somebody gets hurt.

176145Photo #176145Please put a safe pavement from Short Ferry caravan park to Fiskerton. Since we haven't got a bus now as the original bus route was taken away. Our nearest bus is Fiskerton approx 2.5 miles on a dangerous road. There is a grass verge but it's not really suitable. There is a national cycle way and walk way on the opposite bank from Bardney to Lincoln but no access for us to be safe. The road being a classified B which unfortunately very large lorries use it to cut thru from Bardney to Lincoln. With boy racers and speeding motor cyclists it's a danger to walk. Just one side will be perfect please.Track:
