163714Photo #163714There is a narrow gate, set at an acute angle, on the National Cycle Route 6 as it passes through Abbey Park. The wall is about 8ft high and completely obscures the view of cyclists and pedestrians approaching from both sides. The gate is single width, and only offers a view as you are almost on top of the opening. In addition, the gate has ironwork which sticks out, which could cause an injury to an unlucky cyclist. This is potentially the most dangerous spot on the N6 as it goes through Leicester. The wall has a date on it which indicates it is fairly recent, so it is unlikely to be listed or otherwise protected. The possible improvements would be a) widen the opening in the wall to at least twice its current size, or b) install a "window" on opposite side of the wall from the river - this could be a gap filled with a railing; or c) introduce a suitable mirror and lighting at the gate (this may be technically difficult to arrange given the very rare occasions when the gate needs to be closed).Cycleway:

161428Photo #161428I believe that there is clear and valuable opportunity to provide a bike share point / location at either corner of Grenfell Road as it meets London Road - LE2 2PA. There are a number of resident keyworkers in particular who would benefit from this.
I also think that Grenfell Road should be made residents only parking to reduce congestion to the mouth of the road and improve access to all cyclists.

156336Photo #156336Whilst the alley linking the market place and Town Hall Sq is much better, it has now been made to look like a road to some drivers who mount the kerb and cross the pavements to drive through it.

It is only a matter of time before someone is run over on this "pedestrian" route!Track:

155320Photo #155320Paint directional arrows and 'keep left' advisories at major points on the whole length of the Great Central Way to encourage people to stay to the left - allows for better social distancing, better flow of cycles and pedestrians and thereby increasing overall safety. At the moment pedestrians, mobile phone zombies and pedestrians with pushchairs are all over the place and when cyclists ring their bell, it isn't obvious or certain they will move left (or move out of the way at all), making it less safe for everyone.Track:
