  • Multiple potholes descending Hills Rd rail bridge

    Created by David Green // 1 thread

    The cycle lane on the Northside of the Hills Rd rail bridge has many potholes where the red tarmac surface is missing. This is extremely hazardous for cyclists to avoid whilst descending with car lanes on either side. You could easily fall off into the path of motor traffic.

  • Stow-cum-Quy no cycle path

    Created by Robbie397 // 1 thread

    There is now a nice new fully separated cycle path from the north end of Stow-cum-Quy along Colders Lane and Quy Road, which provides easy access to Anglesey Abbey, Lode, and a useful connection between cycle routes 51 and 11, with onward access to Wicken Fen. This is really great. However, to get onto this path from cycle route 51, just after the Newmarket Road junction with the A14, requires cycling along half a mile of busy, narrow, 30 mph road with no cycleway, and traffic calming (islands) that encourages wreckless overtaking of bicycles. The only safe option is to cycle on a narrow footpath with no signage. 

    Could at least painted cycle lanes be added to the road here, and with a 20 mph speed limit to make the village nicer for cyclists, residents and pedestrians? This could also encourage many more visitors to Anglesey Abbey from Cambridge to go by bike, and to go more regularly, benefiting the National Trust.

  • Closure of Netherhall school off road cyclepath

    Created by Phillip Barnett // 1 thread

    (Originally sent to Camb cyclist mailing list)
    Does anyone know why the off-road cyclepath from Cherry Hinton park to Netherhall school has been closed all week? The northern half of this is locked by gates at both ends, (private land, belonging to school) and is open daily just before school, and just at end of school, half hour at a time, for children to get to school off road. Apparently, the primary school at the south end of the path has objected (don't know why? Maybe worried about possible accidents with their children?)
    So for the first time in decades, it's been closed.
    And so now my children are being forced onto longer routes, on busy schoolrun roads, when they had a perfect off-road route, door to door offroad cyclepath all the way!
    I'm sure it's a backwards step in terms of child safety. I will take it up with the school but wondered if anyone knew what's going on?
    Thanks

  • Petersfield Green - Widening of path

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    The path running in front of Petersfield Mansions (identified below in red) is only 1.2m wide. This means that when passing each other pedestrians and cyclists often have to use the grass which is problematic when it is wet and muddy. It is also difficult for residents of Petersfield Mansions when exiting their properties as there is very little space for people to manoeuvre around each other.

    Usage of this path has increased over the years with more cyclists using the path to access the cycle racks which have been installed on Bradmore Street as part of the expansion of Anglia Ruskin University. It is therefore proposed to widen the path by 1metre to cater for this increased usage and to improve access from Mill Road with the removal of a short section of railing and the installation of a flush kerb.

    Petersfield is owned by the City Council and the path in question is maintained by the County Council as highway.

    The cost of these works is approximately £20,000 and this project will be joint funded by Cambridge City Council and Anglia Ruskin University.

    The path marked in blue is maintained by the City Council and we hope to improve the surface of this path at the same time if funding can be identified.

    If you have any comments regarding the widening of this path or would like more information please contact cyclingconsultations @ cambridge.gov.uk by 14th September 2015.

  • Proposed extra pedestrian and cycle access points to Cambridge Business Park.

    Created by Richard Taylor // 1 thread

    Proposal for three new pedestrian and cycle access points to Cambridge Business Park. The proposals are being made in light of the plans for an new station nearby.

    Representations from companies with premises on the business park - Redgate and Autonomy - have expressed concerns about security and the potential for people to try and park on the business park and then get on a train.

    The proposals are for the new accesses to be gated to restrict general public access.

    The proposals include a connection to the potential cycleway along the line of the disused railway.

  • Southern end of Foundation Street should stay closed

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 1 thread

    During the refurbishment of St Mary at the Quay this section of road has been closed. The sky has not fallen on us and neither has traffic ground to ( any more ) of a standstill. In my opinion it should stay closed to MVs and just be segregated for bikes and peds.

  • Poor Bourne Park cycle path surface

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    The surface of the cycle path, which is also National Cycle Route 1 through Bourne Park is of an extremely poor quality. This really needs to have a smooth tarmac surface, and potentially widened.

    I would expect kids to be learning to ride a bike along here, however that's not currently possible as its' touch going for an adult to cycle here never mind a child who is just learning to cycle. If this path is upgraded it would be even better if the surfacing was extended to create a circle around the park which is reasonably smooth, so that people can learn to cycle by cycling around this park.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pavement cycling stops just before cycle shop

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 0 threads

    The legal pavement cycling is suddenly not allowed 3 car lengths before a cycle shop near this junction which has toucan crossings and cycle paths on all other sides of it. Why can't it be continued to the bike shop for a safe cycle route to/from the junction away from traffic?

  • Dangerous cycle lanes in Ipswich Town Centre

    Created by Andrea // 3 threads

    In Museum Street and Upper Brook Street/Northgate Street it is very dangerous to cycle. Both roads are very narrow, have lots of buses pass through and there are contraflow cycle paths. On those you are very close to the buses (both directions) even if you wait on the pavements to let them through because you are worried about accidents. Can cyclepaths go through Elm Street, Tower Street or Tower Rampart instead?

  • Milton Road Housing Development in Back Gardens 12/1537/FUL

    Created by Richard Taylor // 1 thread

    A new development is proposed behind 231-247 Milton Road in Cambridge.

    The entrance driveway / road will need to cross the popular off-road cyclepath on Milton Road.

    The crossing needs to be designed to be cycle friendly; ie. level for cyclists, with good visibility for cars to be able to see cyclists on the path, and with cars required to give way for cyclists.

    There is a need to watch this development through the planning process.

    Alternatively an access to the development from Woodhead Drive might be the safer option.

    There appears to be potential for a cycle and pedestrian route through the site; but that is not currently planned for.

    My article on the proposals is at:

  • No cycling signs on Great Oak Row cycle path

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    Inconsistent and incorrect No Cycling signs exist at the Sheepfold Lane end of the Great Oak Row cycle / foot path. Cycling is permitted here, as can be seen from the cycle symbol on the ground. These signs should be replaced with shared-use cycle / foot path signs to avoid causing confusion.

  • Wadloes Road - Ditton Fields - Path Lighting

    Created by Richard Taylor // 0 threads

    The path between Wadloes Road and Ditton Fields is popular with pedestrians and cyclists.

    It is unlit though, and as it has buildings and high hedges on either side sofeels enclosed and it is much darker on the pathway than it is out in the open.

    Lighting on this pathway would I think make it feel safer, and I think would actually improve safety for example through helping cyclists spot pedestrians earlier.

  • Cycle path needed to The Abbey School

    Created by Gregory Williams // 0 threads

    A cycle path is needed to serve The Abbey School in Faversham. The busy A2 at the front of the school currently provides a barrier to pupils and staff choosing to cycle to the school. A cycle path will reduce the number of pupils being dropped off at the school by car and the number of staff that drive in, thus reducing the burden on the highway network.

  • Cycle path to South Canterbury schools

    Created by Gregory Williams // 0 threads

    A cycle path is needed to link to Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School and St. Anselm's Catholic School in South Canterbury. This will increase the number of pupils and staff that are able to commute to these schools.

  • Kingston to Barham cycle route

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    The road between Kingston and Barham is rural and has fast-moving traffic despite the majority of it having a 30 mph speed limit. There are no accompanying footpaths beside the road and the road is relatively narrow. A cycle and pedestrian link is required, particularly to allow schoolchildren from Kingston to safely reach the primary school in Barham.
