Cycleway on the new link road

Two-lane crossing at a roundabout exit for the new link road. This is not good enough - it should be a single lane, and the speeds should be significantly lower. This is dangerous.

Continuous footway = good. Ridiculous kerb transition at the junction = dangerous. This will seriously hurt somebody turning across it.

This apparently hand-made kerb will seriously hurt or kill somebody trying to cross it, especially while turning. There are dropped kerbs nearby but people unfamiliar with the area will expect to turn normally into the road.

  • Icon 167359 There is a footpath here, along the A6 crossing over the Grand Union Canel and starting opposite St Margaret's Pastures. It allows you to walk into/from city centre but this path always has cyclists speeding past in both directions on a narrow walking path making it feel unsafe to walk. There is also a lot of bushes that could be made clearer as it makes it very secluded and not safe to walk in the dark. You can never hear cyclists approaching behind you because they don’t use bells or anything to alert your attention. The path goes on to turn into pavement which has been halved to make a cycle lane leading into the city centre but the pavement is now quite narrow. Both areas need to be made better for walking.
  • Icon 167358 There's nowhere to park the bike next to New Cross Station. I suggest a parking rack at its entrance.
  • Icon 167334 Going East, the last part of Royal George Parade is one-way going West. This is a better route to Holmbush roundabout for cycles than using the main and the pedestrian crossing. If this last part was open to cycles it would make sense.
  • Icon 167326 Including the provision of cycle infrastructure as a condition of planning for private developments is a pointless exercise. This junk is in #Adare Co. #Limerick. I should win an award for staying upright while cycling with one hand on the bars. https://twitter.com/lkcycledesign/status/1383398659761397764?s=21
  • Icon 167325 Come with me on the deeply unpleasant experience that is #cycling to the hairdressers on Ecclesall Road #Sheffield S11 https://twitter.com/cyclinginaskirt/status/1383433783005769736?s=21
  • Icon 167278 Possibly the worst maintained cycle lane in the city. Too narrow, covered in detritus and mangled by tree roots. Desperately needs modernising
  • Icon 167277 Narrow with dog walkers off leads
  • Icon 167276 Close this short stretch for cyclists & pedestrian use
  • Icon 167275 Close this short stretch for cyclists & pedestrian use
  • Icon 167274 Good cycling provision needed here
  • Icon 167273 Good cycling provision needed here
