  • Lordswood Rd route problems

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    There is no reason for the plethora of ``cyclists dismount'' signs (13.4.1) and 90-degree turns (5.4.2) on this route.

    It should be improved to remove the latter, and to render the former unnecessary, e.g. by adding raised tables across accesses.

  • Access to Tesco by bike

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    Access to Tesco by bike could be improved in various ways. The main picture shows the view from close to the entrance to the supermarket. The cycle parking is at the far end of the building near the Belisha beacon. Cycle parking should be located as close to the entrance to the building as possible, and should certainly be obvious and easy to find from there.

    I will attach some other photos showing things which could be improved.

  • West Rainton to Carrville route unfinished

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    The cycle path on the north side of the A690 from West Rainton to Carrville is still not finished. The main picture shows how the path, widened in January 2015, comes to an abrupt halt when you get near the bus stop on the east side of the former railway bridge.

    The trees and hedge have recently been cut back along here, so perhaps we may see this work completed soon?

  • The Barberry

    Whilst it is good that cyclists have been considered here, the design is abysmal. To remain within the law, cyclists have to dismount in the carriageway, push their bikes along a few metres of footway, and then remount their bikes to continue. Additionally, because every effort has been made to speed car drivers through the roundabout, both pedestrians and cyclists have to wait for a steady stream of motorists, but courtesy of the bend in the road the sight-line when heading South-West is abysmal. Meanwhile traffic can come from the right from no less than three roads using the two available lanes. It doesn't have to be this way, and shouldn't be.

    Cyclists and pedestrians should have priority, and a severe speed table built to force motorists to drive dead slow. The roundabout needs to be narrowed to one lane with a cobbled overrun area. None of this is new engineering design, and the techniques are perfectly legal in the UK. It could have been designed this way from scratch, which would have been much cheaper.

  • Harborne Lane Cycleway <-> Vincent Drive

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 1 thread

    The distance between the cycleway and Vincent Drive is a couple of metres. It is illegal for people to cycle this distance because the connection is via a zebra crossing. This is backed up with a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign. This is absurd and needs to be corrected.

    There is also an obstructive pavement-mounted tree at this location. There is plenty of space for trees just a couple of metres to the right, so the tree should be removed and a new one planted in the grassy area.
