Trees and bushes need to be kept cut back properly to maintain full width of path - and also around lamp posts to ensure good lighting

More free and covered cycle parking + better advertised

Provide cycle parking here

Provide Cycle Parking here - none convenient for the market

Narrow carriageway to provide space for footpath and cycletrack. Ped. footpath too narrow under bridge

Encroaching vegetation has reduced the width of tis near-school pavement by at least a foot

Not cycleway, but the temporary bollards have had the benefit of calming traffic (Ione lane instead of two) making it saver for pedestrians crossing, which they do, as well as cyclists turning right from Aylestone Rd heading south into Chur ... [more]

Pave the desire path between the crossing and the bike lane. It's nearly impossible to cross London Road from the end of St James's Road -- much easier to use the nearby crossing, but that dumps you on the wrong side of the bus stop. Moar p ... [more]

Needs a bikeshare rack here

Needs to be put back here [??]

Bike share hub please!!! It will encourage the children to cycle too!

Bike share location

Bike share location

Bikeshare location would be good since it's a very busy area with lot of people walking and cycling

A bike share stand at the car park in the centre of the park

Bike share at the Hockley Farm Surgery. Always tricky to park here. There are Sheffield stands at the surgery already, but rarely filled.

How about using the tram shed for a bike share docking station. Under cover, and not blocking footway.

Lots of families around this area, great opportunity to cycle into town instead of driving.

Plenty of space here for a bikeshare that could be used by the surrounding places of work. Security may need to be considered

Bikeshare location in this area would be great for the shops and for access to/from town

Bike share and parking would be good for the supermarket

Loads of space to install a docking station for bikes to be hired from

Plenty of room along this stretch of pavement to have a place to park/store bikes for access to shops/restaurants

Need a e bike docking station here

Add cycle parking

Vehicles driving unchallenged down Gallowtree Gate as the bollards at the Granby Str end have been left down all year. Vehicles are also driving across the corner from Granby Str, between the new cycle docks and the circular seating to ente ... [more]

Whilst 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. This despite the planters that have been pla ... [more]

Bike share for Queens Road

Bikeshare locations needed in the city centre

Add bike parking - there is nothing on CPR

There’s room for some bikes and it would serve the people who live nearby

Bike share location

No through road

No through road - resident-only access and parking please

Add a pavement - make Bramley Rd a cul-de-sac not a through road

Turn this into a low traffic neighbourhood, no through road - resident parking only and no more HMOs - Provide an extension to article 4 directive to cover these streets - Wentworth Rd, St Pauls, Bramley, St Dunstan, Franche Rd

Low Traffic Neighbourhood to increase pleasantness of the area and park, preventing rat run and commuter parking and fly tipping

Getting from the bus lane / cycle way heading north along Aylestone Road across to the Welford Road cycleway outside the gaol to head into town is not at all easy . There's little space to get off the road at the traffic lights to cross - ... [more]

If the council is going to make Braunstone Gate a LTN, then police it to make it effective or don't bother!

If the council is going to make this an LTN, then police it to make it effective or don't bother!

Paint 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 thereb ... [more]

The mess of pedestrian and cyclepaths along this section of the pavement between the intersection of Freemen's Common Road and Putney Road needs to be sorted out. It's a huge mess . . .

The mess of pedestrian and cyclepaths along this section of the pavement between the intersection of Freemen's Common Road and Putney Road needs to be sorted out. It's a huge mess . . .

A bike box is required here on the northbound lanes of Saffron Lane at the intersection of Aylestone Road - to protect cyclists and to stop cars squeezing past cyclists waiting at the lights.

Traffic lights need to be changed to pedestrian priority on ALL sets of lights in West End, encourage walking and cycling, slow down the cars please, and cameras on Hinckley Road / Fosse Rd junction.

Cars parking on pavement, speeding - actually driving straight on and off from the road - someone will be killed, needs concrete bollards please.

Bikeshare location here or close-by, good for commuters and leisure cyclists accessing the Great Central Way, via the Marsden Lane ramp

It's great to see this going one way for most motorised traffic. It already feels a safer space for cyclists. I hope this will be made permanent, if not fully pedestrianised and cyclised (new made up word) 😊

Narborough Road is difficult and dangerous to cycle down and does not leave enough space for pedestrians or cyclists. No idea if it's realistic to become one way for motor traffic but that would be a way of creating more space Narborough Ro ... [more]

The council built a lovely trellis here for growing brambles and stinging nettle . . . given the area can no longer be mowed as previously, the council must keep bushes cut back properly and safely to ensure they don't encroach on the path. ... [more]

Widen if possible and paint 'keep left' and directional arrows to ensure distance and safety.

Widen and resurface the shared path - the shared path through this section of the meadows from the carpark to the river has been neglected for years, and the path has narrowed due to lack of sweeping, build-up of leave litter and mud and en ... [more]

Northcote Road is now a ratrun with frequent speeding/ dangerous driving. Rather than seek to push further traffic into it by eliminating a right turn onto Queens Road, Northcote Road needs to be traffic-restricted. One way?

More cycle parking at St Martin's needed now old ones are removed

For new Aldi

Cycle hub for families

Key urban hub

THE CLOSED ROAD HERE IS DANGEROUS, FORCING MANY CARS, VANS, AND LORRIES TO DRIVE DOWN HIGH STREET ALL DAY EVERY DAY TO ACCES THEIR OWN CAR PARKS.

Docking station for bikes/santander cycles

Bikeshare for colleges

Bikeshares at Freemens Common

Bikeshare at Rutland St

Bikeshare to New Walk Museum

Bikeshare at the Curve Theatre

Bikeshare at Watermead South

Bikeshare at Upperton Road/Narborough Rd Junction

Bikeshare at Fullhurst Avenue Jct (or at end of Fosse Road)

Bikeshare station on Queens Road - please can we reallocate previous road space to a station?

A good spot to be able to access bikes.

Make Savoy St 2-way for bikes or else it doesn't solve the problem of cycling away from St Margarets. Or make Churchgate 2-way. Whatever.

Cycle parking needed here-- lots of use right now of the railings round the tree, sometimes even a queue for it.

Check out the desire path between the crossing and the bike path. This needs paving. There are 4 ways for Clarendon Park people to get into town, but no easy way for them to get to Highfields. Odd.

This unused ground under the old sign would be a good place for a bikeshare station

There is a cycle way under the bridge, however there are bollards in place and no way through for wheelchair adapted or bicycle taxi type bikes.

Traffic has to cut across the bike/bus lane to turn left. Frequently drivers don't look to make sure not cutting in front of cyclists.

This is a difficult section of road where traffic including lorries and buses frequently does close passes at speed. There is not enough room in stretches for safe overtaking and traffic often does not wait for road to be wider.

The inner ring road desperately needs to be made safe for cycling

A bike share site in Western Park would be very well used. There are many people who routinely travel to town for work or leisure and many of them drive. Anything that can be done to encourage more bikes and less cars would be great.

The pavement along this stretch of road up to the narborough road junction is very narrow, shrubs are overgrown & encroach on the pavement. Although there's a 30 mph limit on the road most drivers seem to exceed it, walking along here feel ... [more]

Bike share needed - great links to the city with cycle infrastructure. Get more people using it with bike share!

Create a clear walking path and improve walking routes

Bike share here please

Need for an E-Bike share to support local shops and businesses

Create an E- Bike Share in and around this location

Bike share at the P&R

A bike share location here would link these shops to the city centre and to Oadby. The residents here could use the cycles to get to the city, or even out to fosse park across Aylestone and Grand Central Way

Replace the 3 parking spaces for the old surgery.

Don't put the bike share here -- it gets in the way of the footy game.

Wider footpaths and pavements. Also install barriers to stop cars parking on the pavement. This section gets very busy during school runs.

Wider footpaths and railings to stop cars parking on the pavement

Sharp turns onto narrow bridge make it hard for cyclists and dangerous for pedestrians.

Cars speed down Somerset Avenue

Exit from A&E/LRI unsafe

This is a one-way road outside a school. During this time of social distancing, schools have had to stagger start and end times, vary entrances to site etc. There are lots of children and parents having you sure as out around the area. It i ... [more]

Car drivers almost always in advanced stop lines inbound and outbound, a lot of aggression shown to cyclist here too as well as close passes
