A wide 40mph A-road but no room for a dedicated cycleway on this side. Just a shared footway on the opposite side.

Pedestrian route around roundabout entering Colchester from the A12 - needs improving for cyclists. The path goes to the left - cyclists towards the town centre have to turn right on the road.

Whitehall Close could be a useful short cut, and save cyclists having to negotiate Whitehall Road, but as it is, it is a pain. Note the desire line of pedestrians (and possibly cyclists) using the crossing point to the right.

There is a new ASL beyond the bus, here on St Johns Street in town centre. The issue however, is the cycle lane leading to it on the left. There is simply not enough space for it, whether the bus is in the middle of the lane or not. Cycl ... [more]

Was it really necessary to install 8 [dark] bollards here? Just look at the spacing! And why such a little gap in the build out?

ASL with leading cycle lane encouraging cyclists to go down the inside of waiting traffic at a left only turn. See also #35731.

New ASL's have been springing up all over town centre. Some are just a box without a leading cycle lane, however this one on the High St does have a cycle lane, on the inside of a left only turn. Cycling down the inside here is not to be ... [more]

Little bike symbols in the gutter (see #34312) along Crouch St have been burned off and replaced by some larger ones, in the centre of the lane. At this point the symbols were suggesting a desire line that would bring cyclists into confl ... [more]

New 'Cyclists proceed with caution' pavement "sign" at the end of the Crouch Street East cycle lane. There is a lot to take in at this junction, and nothing bar this "sign" to aid the cyclist, or prompt them as to where hazards may be: ... [more]

A large bike symbol in the middle of the lane, as used on St Johns Street (see #29969), would be far more appropriate than a small one as is the case here on Crouch St. With parking bays on the right leaving only a limited space, cyclist ... [more]

Small bike symbol on Crouch St suggesting cyclists make a sweep right across the road into the underpass. For cyclists to make this right turn, they should previously have been in a far more dominant, central road position and not make the ... [more]

Small bike symbols on Crouch St, suggesting a desire line for cyclists, and to motorists, where they should be riding. For cyclists to make a right turn into the underpass as is suggested (see #34314) they should be in a far more dominan ... [more]

The junction of Creffield Rd and Maldon Rd is crying out for a cyclists exemption from the No Entry.

These guard rails leave nowhere for a cyclist to go should there be an incident on the road.

No permeability between Ipswich Road and St. Johns Close.

Permeability where Beche Road meets Old Heath Road.

Layer Road is easily wide enough to accomodate a segregated cycle lane on both sides of the road.

Layer Road is easily wide enough to accomodate a segregated cycle lane on both sides of the road.

Hawkins Road is a wholly unsuitable road to be part of the National Cycle Network.

If the student makes it across (see #20799) the busy, 50mph A133 dual carriageway above the flooded underpass (see #20797 and #20798) they have then to negogiate the railings and the boggy slope (see #20801) down to the Salary Brook shared ... [more]

The result of flooding in the A133 underpass (see #20797 and #20798) is that students will "chance their luck" crossing the busy 50 mph dual carriageway.

The road joining Mason Road has the benefit of Keep Clear road markings, but cyclists and pedestrians don't even have that, let alone a signalled crossing (see #19513).

Rather than use St. Andrew's Avenue, motorists will use Greenstead Road to get from Hythe to town centre. Speeding is commonplace despite this stretch of parked cars either side of the road. Most cyclists will use the pavement, finding the ... [more]

Traffic-calming measure makes it dangerous for cyclists on Layer Road.
