  • Cob Lane - Bristol Road Link

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    This path has been built recently as part of the Merritts Brook Greenway walking and cycling route. It would be quite useful were it not narrow, twisty, and covered in loose chippings. As it is, it is all but useless for cycling, so it needs to be rebuilt properly.

  • Gate too narrow

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 1 thread

    The entrance is very decorative but has a really narrow corner, so it is difficult to negotiate by bicycle when you've been shopping, and impossible for trailers. There is a desire line (mudpath) next to it, this could be converted to a proper path.

  • Cycle Path Suggestion

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    A bi-directional cycle path here would link Langleys Road (a quiet road that leads down into Bournville Village and beyond) with Katie Road (another quiet road that links with the BCR route on the Worcester and Birmingham canal). Cyclists would cross Oak Tree Lane using what is currently a puffin crossing (suitably modified to promote sustainable transport). There is a huge amount of space here, currently largely used for pavement car parking.

  • New cyclepath/footpath

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    A new path between Cameron March and Crawfurd Rd would be an enormous improvment as it would allow cyclists coming from Old Dalkeith Rd and Peffermill Rd to avoid Lady Rd (steep uphills, no cycle provision, much traffic) or Dalkeith Rd (steep uphills, no cycle provision, much traffic, plus parking). This path would also connect naturally to the strange cycle path on the inside of Cameron Toll that just ends on Lady Rd. with a "cyclist dismount" sign.

  • Convert to cycle lane

    Created by Stephan Matthiesen // 0 threads

    Convert some of the pavement along Niddrie Mains Rd to a proper segregated cycle path. The pavement is already very wide, and east of Craigmillar Castle Av it already almost looks like a cycle path as there is an additional kerb in the middle of the pavement, dividing it into two 2m wide paths. It would need a few dropped kerbs and repair of a few potholes, but other than that it could be easily converted into a cycle path. Many people cycle on there already (illegally). It is important because Niddrie Mains Rd is very busy, often jammed, with many pinch points that lead to dangerously overtaking.

  • Barrier too narrow for some bikes

    Created by Donald Noble // 1 thread

    Access barrier (presumably to stop motorbikes) is too narrow to permit access by some bikes, including mountain bikes with wide bars, plus all sorts of accessible bicycles, as well as pushchairs/wheelchairs/mobility scooters etc.

  • Filton Holiday Inn Access

    Created by Eric Booth // 0 threads

    Cycle path is broken up by cars coming off the dual carriageway into the hotel (before a barrier). So a cyclist not only has to stop, but then turn around and look behind them for cars careening off the dual carriageway into the hotel.

  • King's Lynn Transport Interchange

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Some of (the last of?) the s106 money from two out-of-town big box supermarkets is being used to remodel the connections between the bus and rail stations. National Route 1 runs through this area and the bus station may also be Lynn's biggest cycle park, so there's quite a lot of potential for this to do good - or to do harm.

  • Link to Gilwern Velo Park

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 The obvious cycle route to get to Gilwern Velo Park from Abergavenny is to join the canal towpath at Govilon. On arriving in Gilwern, the cyclist is faces with several issues: Poor surface of the canal path along Gilwern Wharf, steep access down from the canal path. No crossing point on Abergavenny road (without cycling all the way into Gilwern) and then a narrow de-restricted lane with steep sides and no verge leading to the turn into the outdoor centre. We would like to see many improvements made to allow safe access as part of the velo park scheme.

  • Neville Hall Hospital access

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 Apparently a route round NH Hospital was proposed once many years. There are many opportunities for the hospital to improve cycle (and foot) access.

  • A4143 Cyclepath

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 The A4143 heading up towards the Hospital is plenty wide enough for a dedicated cycle path on one side or the other (we suggest the west side). This is often a busy and fast road. (Note this this would also solve the safe cycle access to the climbing wall and softplay.)

  • Llanfoist share-use cyclepath proposal

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 A key link for route 46 users, as well as people getting to/from Llanfoist village hall, is the strip of pavement on the north side of Merthyr Road. We believe there could be the width to allow this to be widened into a share-pavement allowing cyclists to avoid crossing the road twice in the space of a few hundred metres.

  • Waitrose: missed opportunities for cyclists

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 1) More clear directions from Waitrose to the cyclepaths. 2) Many missed opportunities at Waitrose to encourage cycling: a) Cycle stands often blocked with trolleys and equipment from the "garden" section. b) No easy pedestrian/cycle access direct to Route 46 (west) when it would be easy to provide one. c) anti-trolley bumps on main road in do have a flat path for cyclists, but they are not exactly friendly. How about actually having a cycle lane in and around the site?

  • Remove steps on ramp down from Union Road footbridge to A4143

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 There are relatively shallow paths that run from both ends of the bridge down to the A4143, but both have shallow steps that stop them being useful to cyclists. This means that people heading out of the hospital wanting to cycle down the A4143 towards Llanfoist have to cross the road with the traffic, rather than the safer alternative of crossing the bridge and coming down the ramp. Note that openstreetmap's map of this is incorrect. I'll submit a correction (11-04-2014)

  • Contraflow cycle path on Union Road East

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014 Part of Union Road East is one-way, so cyclists heading from the hospital into town have to cycle 3 sides of an undulating square to reach Tudor Street. A contraflow cycle lane would solve this and encourage cycling.

  • Cavendish Way/St Albans Road West, Hatfield

    Created by Chris Whitehouse // 0 threads

    This refers to the shared cyclepath/footway across St Albans Road West at the junction with Cavendish Way. There is a flower bed on the east side of this crossing which projects into the line of the crossing. There is also a cyclepath/footway sign on a short post in the flower bed. http://goo.gl/maps/9T3AO At night it is very easy to take a line which sends you into the flowerbed, particularly if crossing quickly to avoid traffic exiting from St Albans Road West. It's not hard in daytime too if there is pedestrian traffic. Please fill in and resurface a short section of flowerbed and resite the sign.

  • Cycle to school path: St Michaels' footpath

    Created by Jack Thurston // 0 threads

    We want widen and redesignate this footpath as a safe, dual use, route, especially to enable children to ride to school safely. This would allow cyclists to avoid a stretch of the Brecon Road and Pen-y-Pound, which are both fast and hostile roads.

  • Blocked dropped kerb

    Created by Paul L // 0 threads

    The cycle route from Ranelaugh Drive towards Isleworth involves crossing the footway. A dropped kerb has been provided (but no other markings) but this is frequently blocked by parked cars. A solution would be to place a bollard either side of the dropped section.

  • Missing link, West End Rd to Waterfront

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 1 thread

    As you can see in the photo there is a shared use path on river side of West End Rd just east of Bobby Robson bridge. But then where ? How far does it go ? It is certainly no good if you want to cross Princes Street- you cant unless you go up to the Burrel Road end of the bridge. And anyway once you get over Princes Street along Commercial Road and Grafton Way it is a narrow footpath which is not shared use. It would be good to connect Bobby Robson Bridge and the Waterfront. Directly and not by switching over to the other path and then over two toucans. Perhaps even a wide cycle crossing of the 4 lanes of Stoke St ? That would be brilliant.
