Traffic is asked to reduce speed to 30 mph, so why not make it an enforceable 30 mph speed limit. This section of road is regularly used by cyclists to link quiet country lanes.

Remove discriminatory barriers at the end of the shared path which prevents non standard bicycles and trailers from being used.

No cycle lane, but plenty of space (the road is wide enough for a dual carriageway)

Pavement width less than a metre, making it hard to walk on

No pavement but more and more residential buildings going up in the area. Therefore the speed limit needs reducing to 30 mph which would also benefit the many cyclists using the road as a quiet route to Tiptree.

Fountain Lane is a rat run used to get to the A12 - this Junction with Easthorpe Road requires a STOP line as regularly drivers don't slow and look properly at the junction. Only this morning I nearly became a statistic.

Pave the Wivenhoe trail so it can be used in winter (after rain puddles form making it more hassle to commute on)

Remove on street parking and include a segregated cycle way.

Clear signage needed from this point and onwards through the station forecourt and car parking areas to join the line-segregated pathway through Bergholt Road Park.

A dedicated and segregated cycleway is required in both directions on Lexden Road to provide safe access from Stanway through Lexden onto Colchester Town Centre

Remove the right turn lane into Head Street as it creates another stop phase for vehicles travelling along the Southway in an easterly direction. This causes more congestion around the Balkerne Hill roundabout. It also encourages drivers ci ... [more]

The odd lengths of cycle path along Berechurch Hall Rd need to linked together and extended to the Lidl on Gosbecks Rd

This whole section from St Andrew's Avenue to Brightlingsea Road needs cutting back to make the footway usable.
