Should be blocked off so it can't be a through route for cars

The road is very narrow, has many speed bumps, and is generally designed to prevent through traffic... and it doesn't work. Modal filter so it's closer to being traffic free would be good!

Close this part of junction completely

St Marks School will need traffic restrictions at start and end of school to allow social distancing.

Modal filters to slow traffic and allow safer walking for residents and school children

Speeding traffic and pavement parking

Block to stop rat running.

Block the road - every day cars speed here or mount the pavement on their way to somewhere else

South View Rd is used as a rat run by drivers using Hill Lane but not wanting to wait to turn at Raymond Rd - the mini roundabout gives them priority. Block here to keep the traffic to the main roads leaving Sourh View residents only

Long straight road encourages speeding. Needs to be closed at school dropping off and picking up time.

Closing the road would allow residents access while stopping its use as a cut thru.

A one way system around the school. Dedicated drop off for disabled? Or simply a desgnated drop off zone?

At the beginning of summer set Terrace from 1 - 12 small road and cars park on the path as there is no driveway. Double yellows down 1 side so no one can park. There has been several occasions that ambulance could get down the road. There i ... [more]

Turn the Common into Southampton's largest roundabout: Hill Lane, Archers Road, the Avenue/Basset, Burgers/Winchester Roads all one-way. Each of these roads would then have room to spare for extra pavement, cycle paths, and drop-off bays (f ... [more]

Cars are speeding. Cyclists are on the pavement. I frequently have to step into the road. I’m more likely to die in an RYA at this point than from COVID19. Speed bumps.

Make Banister Road one-way (south-westbound). Motor traffic must then turn west onto Archers Road, or continue south towards Bedford place. Eastbound traffic from Archers Road will be able to continue and turn north onto the Avenue. This si ... [more]

Make Archers Road one-way (eastbound) between Banister Road and the Avenue. Motor traffic must then turn north onto the Avenue. Northbound traffic from the Avenue will be able to enter Banister Road, and turn right onto Archers Road (westbo ... [more]

Rat run and cars parked either side makes it dangerous foe a key cycle route across town. Close to stop rat run.

Make one way - stop parents turning in Road when dropping off/picking up students - not a nice road to cycle at these times of day

If the road was closed here the restaurants can have outdoor seating

Make this walking only and get rid of the cars and parking

Block the road to stop rat running

If you close this road it could be used for seats and tables

Block the road here, it feels dangerous to cycle here at the crossroads

Block the road here to make it safe to walk and cycle to school

Blocking the road here would make the street safe for the schools by having less cars

Cars travel along Bellemoor Road and Lucombe Road to eat run. If you block the road here it will make it locals only, walking and cycling to three schools will be improved

Pedestrianise Pound Tree Rd from here, as part of further pedesestrianisation of Above Bar. Perhaps in future this location could be used for housing or shops, with an archway for pedestrians and cyclists.

Because this road is long, straight and wide speeding cars are a constant problem, I fully support the new cycle paths proposed but fear the lack of parking will make the road seem even wider and lead to people thinking they can go even fas ... [more]

If Burgess Rd were one way only, and Winchester Rd just north of it the other way, a lot of the congestion along these roads would be alleviated and there might even be room for proper cycle paths on Burgess Rd

Should be a bus gate.

Zebra crossing needed here for pedestrians coming from hill lane via the cutest under Norwich House and/or from in front of Nelson gate. This is a very dangerous road given the high volume of taxis/cars picking up and dropping off passenger ... [more]

Northlands Road is a popular rat run to get around the Stag Gates/Avenue traffic lights for drivers going between the Avenue (north) and Hill Lane/Shirley. A modal filter (closure for motor vehicles) would put an immediate stop to this, whi ... [more]

Hulse Road is a popular rat run to get around the Stag Gates/Avenue traffic lights for drivers going between the Avenue (north) and Banister Road. A modal filter (closure for motor vehicles) would put an immediate stop to this, while allowi ... [more]

Should be a bus gate.

Not enough space on the shared use path when busy. Close to motor traffic and allow people to use the carriageway.

Stop rat running traffic to allow for quiet street access to The Common for people walking and cycling

Stop rat running traffic speeding through residential streets

Stop rat running traffic speeding through residential streets.

Needs block to stop rat running

Dangerous turn onto avenue. Road should be shut.

Should be bus gate to stop rat running

Too narrow for cars. Just close it

Bus gate

Bus gate

Should be a bus gate

When the school run restarts this is a rat run down to Spring Hill

Bedford Place has too much through traffic. Has many pubs/cafes/shops that need the street space back from the cars.

Modal filter at the end of Archers Road. Too many close calls for both pedestrians and cyclists with cars turning in from The Avenue, and ignoring the pedestrian priority from Archers Road.

Lots of speeding cars and drivers often going wrong way down one-way street. No cycle lane and narrow footpath, especially on bin days (wheelchair users and prams struggle to use the footpath).

Access for residents to Canton Street Only - make it clear the rest of Bedford Place is closed to motor traffic.

Close Bedford Place to motor traffic (deliveries only) to allow cafes and bars to provide outside seating - crucial to attracting customers to help economic recovery.

Make this a no right turn when approaching from town up hill Lane to facilitate better movement of traffic.

Far too much speeding through traffic from Shirley Road to St James Road. This makes it too intimidating for children to walk or cycle to school or shops by themselves.

Close road to car traffic at school times

Road closure on NCN2, with footway kept open.

The underpass and cycle route are closed due to building works at the shopping mall.

Building works at the shopping mall have shut the cycle route.
