  • Dropped kerbs needed on George Roche Road cycle path

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    Both ends of the new cycle path between George Roche Road and Stuppington Lane in Canterbury do not have properly dropped kerbs. This makes joining / leaving the cycle path dangerous. Properly dropped kerbs should be installed.

    Additionally the visibility to the SW at the junction with Stuppington Lane is poor due to a hedge immediately adjacent to the junction. The sightline needs to be improved here, since road users approaching from the SW will not be able to see cyclists and pedestrians about to emerge from the path. Likewise cyclists and pedestrians turning into the path will not be able to see anybody else on the path that's approaching the junction.

  • Castle Street Cycle Lane - Taxi parking

    Created by Matt Turner // 1 thread

    Castle Street cycle lane is a contraflow cycle lane on a one way street in Sheffield. It has been here since March 1997 and allows cyclists enter the city centre from the network of cycle paths on the East, avoiding some big arterial routes with no cycling provision.

    For the past 15 years this cycle lane has been plagued by Hackney Carriage drivers parking illegally on this cycle lane, blocking cyclists access and forcing them into oncoming traffic. This has been the case for over a decade.

    There is a taxi rank on the pavement side of the cycle lane, taxis often fill up this rank and overflow, parking in the cycle lane, blocking the way for cyclists.

  • Moorhead Junction - Sheffield

    Created by Matt Turner // 0 threads

    Any cyclist using this cycle lane is at risk from vehicles using the narrow main carriageway as they move into the cycle lane to make it around the corner.

    This junction is newly designed and was installed in Summer 2012.

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 1 thread

    Total re-design of this important junction.
    Very complicated junction with 4 routes entering/leaving .
    Covers very large area.
    Proposal is for one large oval to replace existing double roundabout.
    The junction has an existing reported and unreported high level of vehicle/cyclist crash.
    An ideal opportunity for Ipswich to have a radical design which protects the more vulnerable road users ?

  • West bound cycle filter too narrow for wide bikes

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 2 threads

    When cycling west bound from Rope Walk into Eagle Street through the cycle filter (where cyclists are unaffected by the traffic signals except giving way to the traffic from the left), the width between the bollard and the kerb and the sudden left movement required make the travel through the junction more difficult especially when using bikes with trailers, cargo bikes. Ordinary bike users also find it difficult to use and will avoid it instead.

  • Cycle barriers on Northgate cycle route

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    The cycle link between Brymore Road and Forrester Close, Canterbury has two sets of cycle barriers. These make it difficult to cycle and impossible to take a tandem cycle along the route. They also cause difficulties to people pushing prams and those in wheelchairs and using mobility scooters. The cycle barriers should be removed.

  • Missing cycle parking for CA//10/00295

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    Planning application CA//10/00295 to provide three warehousing units at Marshwood Close, Canterbury has been essentially complete for a number of months now. However the cycle parking provision detailed in the plans has not been installed. This cycle parking provision needs to be installed to offer people working and visiting these units a location to securely park their bikes.

  • Insufficient cycle parking at bus station end of Canterbury Lane, Canterbury

    Created by Gregory Williams // 0 threads

    The cycle parking at the bus station end of Canterbury Lane is full and has several bicycles parked against the railings. This means that people don't have places to park their bicycles and either choose not to cycle or park their bikes where they may cause a hazard or appear unsightly to others.

    The cycle parking at the side of Wilkinsons, nearing the Zoar Chapel, does have spare capacity, but is poorly used because it has a low level of passive surveillance. Some of these stands could potentially be moved towards the bus station end of Canterbury Lane to satisfy the demand there.

  • Lack of Cycle Parking Leeds City Centre

    Created by LeedsCyclists // 1 thread

    Central Leeds is badly lacking cycle parking. Many locations have no cycle parking at all, or only a few token stands, which are often full. At the recent Cycle Consultation Forum, the Council asked for suggestions of locations that need cycle parking: send your suggestions to Mark Robinson at Leeds City Council.

  • TfL Consultation: CS5 Cycle Superhighway

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    Overview
    Barclays Cycle Superhighways are cycle routes running between outer and central London. They provide new cycle lanes and other dedicated infrastructure so that cyclists can enjoy swift, direct, safer journeys around the city. We have developed plans for a new route and would like to hear your views.

    What are we consulting on?
    We’re proposing to introduce a new cycle route between New Cross Gate and Victoria. Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 5 (CS5) would run via Peckham, Camberwell, Kennington and Vauxhall.

    Proposed road layout changes
    The new route would bring substantial changes to the road layout to improve safety for cyclists, including:

    More space for cyclists and buses, through reallocation of road space

    New mandatory cycle lanes, all at least 1.5 metres wide

    Improvements for cyclists at 52 junctions, including new Advanced Stop Lines, cycle feeder lanes, and speed reduction measures

    An innovative cycle ‘early-start’ facility at Vauxhall Bridge Road/Millbank to help cyclists get ahead of traffic

    Banning some turns for cars and lorries to reduce conflict with cyclists

    Extended 20mph speed limit in New Cross

    Other benefits

    Over 3,000 new cycle parking spaces along the route

    Cycle safety checks

    Free cycle training

    Industry-recognised safety training for drivers of large goods vehicles
