  • Cargenbridge Roundabout Crossing

    Created by Steve Jefkins // 1 thread

    Dangerous road crossing with no central island, and not possible to see fast traffic coming from 3 different roads. Especially dangerous coming from Dalbeattie turning left towards the Garrock and the hospital & trying to get to the cycle path the other side of the road.
    Issue added to the map at the 2018 bike breakfast.

  • Pedestrian phase for Halfords lights

    Created by Rhian // 1 thread

    The three way lights at Troqueer Rd/Pleasance Ave/St Michael's Bridge Rd are very difficult to cross at as there are no pedestrian lights. This is a busy route for people walking in to town from Troqueer via St Michael's Bridge Road or Suspension Brae. A pedestrian phase would be highly beneficial.

  • Difficulties in joining the Water End Orbital

    Anon // 1 thread

    I've never approached from this way before but I came along the path up the left side of the river last week to join Water End Road. However on getting to the junction of the path and Water End I found that there wasn't anything to allow me to join or cross the road easily, only a full height kerb on each side.
    This meant I had to wait for a sizeable break in the traffic in order to be safe to lower my bike over the kerb - my bike is a large utility bike that doesn't take kindly to just jumping off kerbs. Fortunately even though it was 6pm on a Friday the traffic was light so a suitable break came along.
    Worse the is not dropped kerb on the opposite side to join the kerb segregated cycle path, that forms part of the city's orbital route. This meant I found myself having to cycle a third of a km on the road alongside a perfectly good cycle path, as it was too busy heading in the other direction to stop and lift my bike up the kerb without causing an obstruction or being unsafe.

  • Traffic Lights needed to enable safe cycle crossing of Hoole Road.

    Created by Chris Neston // 1 thread

    Cyclist travelling from South of Chester ( eg Sandy Lane ) and heading for the Greenway have to cross Hoole Road. They do so at various places eg Hamilton Street or Lightfoot Lane.

    Although there are pedestrian crossing places in Hoole Road there are none for cyclists. Hoole road is full of traffic in both directions and most drivers are unwilling to allow cyclist to cross in front of them. This results in long waits and cyclists have to take risks to get across the road. I suggest that a review of this road takes place and improvements made. These could be light controlled crossings or a revised give way system.

  • Barnton Junction Crossings

    Created by acsimpson // 1 thread

    The priority for pedestrians using Barnton Junction is attrocious. Crossing from the East of Maybury Road to Whithouse Road can take over 5 minutes and requires at least 5 separate stages each of which can force you to wait for an entire cycle of the lights. This priority and timing needs to be reworked if anyone is to consider this to be anything other than a clogged artery. Given the high polution readings from the nearby monitoring station no one should be forced to spend so much time here.

  • Pedestrian Crossing Island Dangerously Small

    Created by acsimpson // 1 thread

    The island on this pedestrian crossing is dangerously small, whoever allowed this to be installed was being negligent. There is no safe area to wait with small children and no flat space for wheelchairs/pushchairs to wait. If I remember the guidlines correctly it shouldn't be possible to walk straight over a staggered crossing island, however this isn't the case here.

  • Toucan Crossing Timings Incorrect

    Created by acsimpson // 1 thread

    This crossing takes far to long to change. There is rarely a time when it couldn't change imediately without causing extra delays to traffic, however it often takes far to long and being a two stage crossing can add a significant delay to any active travel.

  • Link to Tarff and Heathhall forest

    Created by Rhian // 1 thread

    Currently the footpath finishes at Tesco. A shared use path to Tarff would be brilliant as there is no footway at all and the road becomes a 60mph limit. From here it's a stone's throw to an access point in to Heathhall forest. There is a bridge crossing the A75 which could be utilised as a pedestrian and cyclist crossing, with a shared footway from Lockerbie Road up to the access to the bridge along Brownrigg Loaning. A safe crossing point would have to be installed to cross Lockerbie Road to Heathhall forest on the E side of the roundabout. Reducing the speed limit on Brownrigg Loaning to 30mph would improve access for cyclists to this point, but a path is also needed for people on foot travelling from Noblehill, Calside and Georgetown.

  • Join Mill Road to College St bike route

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 0 threads

    There is now a nice cycle path that takes you from the river away from Devorgilla bridge, but there is no easy way to go from there to the College Street cycle track or Terregles Street as both Market Square and Howgate Street are one-way going the other way. Adding an 'except cycles' sign and allowing contraflow cycling along Market Square (which is not a fast or busy road), combined with a crossing across Buccleuch St on the east side of the street would provide an alternative route through town when the Whitesands is closed (or the Loreburn Bridge). At the moment, to get across Buccleuch street you have to cross in three cycles of the light and there are railings preventing pedestrian and bike access to College Street. This would also benefit pedestrians.

  • Lack of safe crossing of Garroch Loaning

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 1 thread

    There is no signalised crossing between the end of the Maxwelltown Cyclepath and the cycle path on the other side of the Garroch Loaning that joins up with the new hospital site. This leaves pedestrians and cyclists having to wait for a gap in the traffic (with poor sight lines because of the viaduct)

  • Pope's Lane Toucan in wrong position

    Created by Space Pootler // 1 thread

    The toucan crossing across Popes Lane at Olive Road is only useful for pedestrians, as cyclists need to ride up onto the pavement as an uncomfortable detour in order to request the crossing.

    There needs to be a request button of some sort at the road crossing itself, and some guarantee that the signals are visible by crossing cyclist and motor traffic.

  • Improve toucan crossing across Morrison Street at Ladyfield

    Created by Chris Paton // 0 threads

    What?
    Move the toucan crossing across Morrison Street a few metres to properly align with Ladyfield and provide improved signage.

    Why?
    There is already a crossing at this location but it's awkwardly positioned making it unclear that there is in fact a through route between the NCN at the Union Canal and Ladyfield, ultimately forming a traffic free link to the West End. Small improvements here would help provide a clearer through route that is both quiet and safe, avoiding the need for cyclists to go along Morrison Street or Lothian Road.

    How?
    A small realignment of the crossing with Ladyfield to follow the desire line would make the through route much clearer. Adding blue signage with destinations would also raise awareness of the route with both pedestrians and cyclists alike.

  • Improved connection between Raeburn Place and St Bernard's Row

    Created by Chris Paton // 0 threads

    What?
    Improve the connection between Raeburn Place and St Bernard's Row.

    Why?
    St Bernard's Row is already a quiet street thanks to the ban on vehicle traffic at Raeburn Place. Northbound, St Bernard's Row is a key link towards family attractions like Inverleith Park and the Botanic Gardens and also provides access to family route 20. Conversely, it provides an effective southbound route into Stockbridge and the city centre from Arboretum, Inverleith, and even Wardie and Granton. The present connection between the St Bernard's Row and Raeburn Place has some cycling provision but a small amount of additional investment could encourage greater use and turn this into a key through route. This would avoid the need for cyclists to use the Water of Leith via Haugh Street which is an indirect and cumbersome route and clashes with pedestrians.

    How?
    The simplest improvement would be blue signage (there is currently just a no vehicles sign which doesn't encourage cyclists to use the facility) to make clear that cyclists can actually cross the pavement from Raeburn Place into St Bernard's Row. A proper dropped kerb would also be a big improvement along with appropriate markings (and preferably lead-up bike lanes) to show the route cyclists should take.
    Ideally though, the nearby pedestrian crossing would additionally be upgraded to a toucan crossing so that less confident cyclists can safely turn right from Raeburn Place into St Bernard's Row (northbound) and turn right from St Bernard's Row into Raeburn Place (westbound). The best solution would involve relocating the crossing a few metres so that there is a clear alignment with the end of St Bernard's Row, though this may be tricky due to the junction with the opposite Dean Street.

  • 'Arthur' crossing of Castle Street

    Created by Thomas Lancaster // 0 threads

    Not strictly a cycle issue as cyclists can turn left up Castle Street from Long Garden Walk (and vis versa) using the build-out on the west side of Castle Street. However for our fellow Scholars Greenway users the lack of a build-out on the east side of Castle Street leaves them stranded mid-crossing with their way blocked by parked cars. Especially problematic for pushchair and mobility scooter users and the nearby Farnham 3rd Scout Group who want to cross and get access to Farnham Park.

  • Proposed Zebra Crossing and Relocation of Residents Parking Bay, Albion Row and Mount Pleasant

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Cambridgeshire County Council as part of a Local Highways Improvement scheme proposes to install a Zebra Crossing on Albion Row, Cambridge. To allow for the Zebra Crossing, it is proposed to relocate the existing Residents Parking Bays onto the south east end of Mount Pleasant, replacing a length of the existing Pay and Display.

  • Toucan crossing

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 1 thread

    Very difficult to cross here, coming from Brunstane Burn Walkway to turn right towards Musselburgh.

    The timing of the traffic lights seems to be such that there is almost always traffic from one direction, so one often has to wait for very long here.

  • Toucan crossing

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    Important crossing point between Craigmillar Castle Park and Inch Park. Very dangerous because the bends in Old Dalkeith Road make cars from both directions difficult to see, and the width of the road encourages speeding well above 30mph (there is a speed display which is triggered by most cars).

  • Convert pelican to toucan

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    Convert the existing pelican crossing to toucan. Needs also a dropped kerb before the lights so that you can get there from the cycle lane.

    The reason is that it is very difficult to turn left into Walter Scott Avenue from Dalkeith Road. It is uphills with a lot of traffic, making it very unpleasant and quite dangerous to leave the cycle lane and move into the centre of the road for turning left.

  • Sheen Road _ Pedestrian Crossing Consultation

    Created by Ross // 2 threads

    https://consultation.richmond.gov.uk/community-engagement/sheen-road-proposed-zebra-crossing-upgrade/consult_view

    Let's see what happens!

    Council Plans to change the Zebra crossing in this area. RCC responded to try to shape the plans to encourage more cycling and walking.
    -------
    Sheen Road Zebra Crossing Proposed Upgrade - Response from Richmond Cycling Campaign (RCC)

    RCC is in general supportive of improving crossings when the upgrades benefit both pedestrians and cyclists. This proposal unfortunately has not fully thought through the interaction of cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicles, unfortunately we cannot support it in its current form.

    RCC would recommend that the scheme is implemented with the changes outlined below. The recommended changes will ensure that vulnerable road users safety is prioritised and the comfort of the cycling and pedestrian experience is enhanced:

    The crossing should be raised to slow approaching vehicles. Vehicle speeds are too high in this area, particularly considering the proximity to a primary school.
    Removal of the central refuge to create a single stage crossing is to be applauded. This will remove a cycle pinch point and will correctly prioritise pedestrians over other road users.
    The new road space that is created by the removal of the central refuge should be used to extend the existing mandatory cycle lanes on each side of the carriageway. It is our understanding that the 2015 TSRGD (traffic signs regulations and general directions) will permit the extension of the cycle lanes over the crossing. The work should pay heed to this so that this can be incorporated when the new regulations go live.
    Keep the zebra crossing. RCC cannot support the removal of the zebra crossing at this location, changing to a traffic light controlled crossing, prioritises vehicular traffic over pedestrians and those on bicycles. It is RCC’s belief that concerns, from users, that vehicles are not stopping in a timely fashion at this location are due to excessive speeds rather than the style of crossing. As mentioned earlier lower speeds should be achieved through a raised crossing to make the zebra crossing more effective. An enhanced zebra crossing keeps priority with the most vulnerable road users.
    The proposal suggests widening the pavement to make the crossing shorter. This would only have a marginal impact on the time to cross. The pavements should not be widened since this will not permit a continuous cycle lane. It will force cyclists to pull in front of fast moving motor vehicles, creating a new pinch point and hazard for cyclists.
    The railings on either side of the road should be removed. TfL research has shown that these encourage high traffic speeds and do little to protect vulnerable road users.

  • Alresford Creek Crossing

    Created by Gary // 1 thread

    Following closely the route of an old railway line between Colchester and Brightlingsea this proposed route would link Colchester to Walton-on-the-Naze. It provides a much needed commuter route out of Brightlingsea linking it safely to Wivenhoe, the University of Essex and Colchester and creates a new leisure route in a holiday district. It builds on the existing four mile NCN51 route from Colchester to Wivenhoe by adding 5 miles off-road to Brightlingsea via a new river crossing at Alresford Creek. From there it utilises an existing pleasant frequent summer ferry crossing to Point Clear and creates a 25 mile coastal route much of it off-road.
