Extremely dangerous at rush hour and how are people with disabilities meant to cross safely? shockingly bad infrastructure right next to a metro station.Road environment:

186391Photo #186391The path under the railway here called the Cattle Arch is unsafe during the evening, especially in the winter, as the tunnel becomes very dark. As the route is used primarily by those on their way to and from school I feel some form of light is necessary under the arch to improve visibility and deter groups of youthsTrack:

186383Photo #186383An exception plate should be added to allow cycle users to turn left from Great Central Street into All Saints Road. This is the most obvious route from city centre to new homes in Waterside development & there is no conflict as ped crossing is uncontrolled.Cycleway:

186382Photo #186382Cycle lane is too narrow and bendy, with multiple crossings in a short space. These are not only annoying but dangerous, especially when on a Santander bike (easier to fall over on tight bends).

186179Photo #186179The council have made the road one way at Greystone Avenue. This means that car journeys are now twice as long as there is only one way back to my home. I tried walking a journey I do 4 times a day with a pram and a 3 year old. The pavements are dangerous and an accident waiting to happen. My pram got stuck in several points on Uppingham Road and my 3 year old tripped on the uneven surfaces.Track:

186164Photo #186164Cycle path involves 4 right-angled turns every time it crosses a side road along Bysing Wood Road, and the cyclists have to give way to cars coming down the side roads. This is a big disincentive for cyclists using the cyclepath as the turns destroy any momentum the cyclist has built up, even if they do not have to give way to cars. A straight path with priority over the side roads would be better, ideally with a table-top type crossing.Cycleway:

186148Photo #186148The current barrier does not prevent anti-social youngsters on motorbikes hurtling dangerously along the footpath. The council should give careful consideration to changing the current barrier to a kissing gate-style barrier as this would go a long way towards stopping these thoughtless and uncaring people screaming up and down the footpath, which is a dangerous risk to both walkers and their animals. Also consider adding a CCTV camera as an extra deterrent. Some police on the beat once in a while wouldn’t be a bad idea either.Temporary closure:

186109Photo #186109There is a short stretch (approx 30 metres) of road with no pavement on either side. This means pedestrians, dog walkers etc, coming out of Porters Lane and heading to Faversham have to walk in the road facing 50mph single carriageway traffic. There is potential to create a pavement on the earth verge on the eastern side of the road to bridge this highly dangerous gap.Track:
