186383Photo #186383An exception plate should be added to allow cycle users to turn left from Great Central Street into All Saints Road. This is the most obvious route from city centre to new homes in Waterside development & there is no conflict as ped crossing is uncontrolled.Cycleway:

186382Photo #186382Cycle lane is too narrow and bendy, with multiple crossings in a short space. These are not only annoying but dangerous, especially when on a Santander bike (easier to fall over on tight bends). Should be a long, straight and wide path and make cars be careful on the turn towards Freemens' Common.Cycleway:

186381Photo #186381Make contraflow for cycles. Already used informally, there is enough space & motor traffic volumes/speed are low enough, so would just need traffic order/signage.Cycleway:

186179Photo #186179The council have made the road one way at Greystone Avenue. This means that car journeys are now twice as long as there is only one way back to my home. I tried walking a journey I do 4 times a day with a pram and a 3 year old. The pavements are dangerous and an accident waiting to happen. My pram got stuck in several points on Uppingham Road and my 3 year old tripped on the uneven surfaces.Track:

185692Photo #185692Would you consider opening up footpath access from Great Central Way to Mini Roundabout between ASDA filling station and ASDA supermarket? Or from Great Central Way to ASDA supermarket Car Park? There is already a narrow access there. This will access and encourage more people to walk to work in Fosse Park or walk/cycle to do their shopping there. Thank you.Track:

185079Photo #185079Gap in cycle way from new lanes on Aylestone Rd across light controlled crossing onto Welford Rd adjacent to park. The cycle way by side of prison turns left towards Lancaster Walk, and there is no marked cycle way from there to crossing. This means cyclists either cycle along pavement, or use the centre island to next crossing, and dodge through multiple traffic signs.Cycleway:

185077Photo #185077Compulsory traffic turn signage needed at junction of Welford Pl with Welford Rd to prevent vehicles treating it as a give way, and queueing. Often to cross over to far lanes. Traffic should be required to turn left into first lane then move over when safe, and road markings on corner of Newark Str/Welford Rd altered to restrict vehicles to far 2 lanes at corner around till past junction.Temporary closure:

184959Photo #184959Just crashed here. broken finger/cracked rib. not blaming anyone but could you all PLEASE use only cycle friendly speed bumps? that is to say a gap for bikes to go through that's flat. the same can be said elsewhere, such as one path in aylestone meadows where some thoughtless jobsworth installed speed bumps stretching right into the bushes to the side. these things don't even cost anything, they just need consideration of people who obviously never ride a bike but are building our infrastructure none the less.Cycleway:

183761Photo #183761Motorists and cyclists can enter from five directions. This busy crossing could be made safer with clear markings indicating where pedestrians and cyclists should cross.
Pedestrians, often with children, come to and from the popular Bede Park. There are also electric scooters, roller-skaters, skateboarders, and delivery cyclists. On the pavement outside the Western Pub there are stands for the electric hire bikes.
Motorists are sometimes tempted to speed up or down the Wilberforce Road hill.
It would be great to have measures to slow motorists down for this junction.
