  • Poorly designed infrastructure

    Created by Charlie // 1 thread

    Confusion created by inconsistent design in the two parts of the new segregated cycle path - one bit is clearly segrated with a distinct red surface; the other bit appears on first glance to be shared-use but on closer inspection is intended to be segregated. Why was this allowed to happen? There are also considerable problems with traffic flow which could have been eliminated with a little more thought. I dispair of Bristol City Council's ability to get anything right!

  • Portsdown Hill & James Callaghan Drive - Needs Segregated Cycleway

    Created by Tim P // 1 thread

    Portsdown Hill Road & James Callaghan drive are a set of roads along the top of Portsdown Hill that is currently used by a lot of cyclists for commuting, touring and leisure facilties due to the forts, views and open areas around it.

    As such, it's a well known tourist spot to stop for a burger or take a picnic and fly a kite.

    However, being on top of an exposed hill results in significant side winds which results in cyclists being blown about by gusts, and therefore all cyclists need to take primary position on this road to give them space. As a 40mph road, many drivers have significant issues with cyclists taking primary, and therefore perform many punishment/close passes.

    The affect of this on cycling in the area is many
    1) More people would cycle from the surrounding areas ( Waterlooville, Havant, Fareham/Lee on Solent ) to work at QA Hospital or the businesses on the hill if there were better cycle infrastructure.
    2) More people would cycle from the surrounding area & to enjoy the space & views if it felt safer to get there.

  • Carton Vale proposed cycling and pedestrian improvements

    Created by David Arditti // 1 thread

    The consultation on this is now out: see http://brent-consult.objective.co.uk/portal/ens/carlton_vale_walking__cycling_improvements

    This is a scheme for which Brent Cyclists has been campaigning for some years. See also here for campaign context
    http://www.brentcyclists.org.uk/content/campaign-success-brent-plans-its-first-road-segregated-cycle-route

    While this scheme does not do all we would like here it is a major step forward for the borough, which has no effective cycle infrastructure to speak of and lags behind adjacent LAs in cycling. Hence we would like to see it go through.

  • Torthorwald cycle route

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 1 thread

    Torthorwald is only a couple of miles from Dumfries but very few people are willing to cycle on the Lockerbie Road/ A709. An off-road path running parallel to the road down to Heathhall forest would connect up with the Caledonian Cycleway and provide an accessible route into town.
