Bold suggestion for segregating the cycleway: pick one side of the bridge to have a (wider?) pavement and then a bi-directional cycleway. Shift traffic lanes across, probably make the pavement on the other side narrower. Having a bi-directi ... [more]

The shared cyclepath heading towards the airport is too narrow for cyclists and pedestrians to pass safely. The other side is better but quite narrow in places and the slip road could maybe be used.

Too many cars speed on this stretch between Tesco and the church, can there be traffic control to give cyclists more confidence to cycle on the road and to make it safer to cross

Use the current wide pavement for cycling

The cycle lane here - turning into Wilton Road is too narrow - the whole junction needs a rethink

Dangerous for cyclists turning right into the campus, have to cut across traffic and sometimes wait in the middle of the road. Need some sort of segregated middle cycle lane, maybe like the one on Winchester Road near the Range.

The road narrows and there is on-road parking on on side. Busses swing round the corner and squeeze through the narrow gap. As a consequence drivers almost always stop in the (discretionary) cycle lane right up against the kerb, while waiti ... [more]

Wide exit from The Boardwalk into Radcliffe Road needed as part of NCN23.

Pop up cycle lane needed both directions.

Pop up cycle way needed both directions.

Pavement Narrow here. Need a pop up cycle lane across the rail bridge to link the pop up lanes on the dual carriageway.

Make it shared use.

This would be a perfect cycle route to Cutbush Lane and is a tarmac road already almost to the playing Fields. A short link path needed.

Crawler lane for southbound cyclists would be a great help.

Time the speed limit was reduced and room to take a lane for cycling.

Regents park road should have a cycleway to allow access for Highfield, Flowers, Basset, St Denys through to the SCN1 and the New Forest.

This dual carriage way sould be reduced to one lane there by linking the east of the city (via the toll bridge) to St Marys and St Denys.

Segregated cycle lane needed to link SCN1 to Stoneham Lane to SCN6

No obvious way of getting from cycleways off of West Quay to cycleway in Millbrook Rd East

Prioritise cycling and foot traffic at crossing. Why should pedestrians have to wait for cars that were not in sight to pass before receiving green light to cross? Not just here, but most crossings

Can we change the layout so that cycles have to cross and use the new cycle lanes heading southbound and not the shared use path?

Support the proposed cycle lanes!

There is a short section of cycle lane that simply disappears on Burgess Road going west and no cycle lane at all going east, making it quite a scary journey in peak traffic times. Please extend the cycle lane for the whole length of Burges ... [more]

There is no pavement or cycle path and a large pothole where the road narrows, and 2 lanes traffic reduce to one lane.

Would it be possible to make this quiet route useable by bikes. There are barriers in place at the moment that make this difficult but it could be a good route?

Portsmouth Road in Woolston is too narrow and busy for bikes. A dedicated cycle lane or car/ lorry restrictions would make it safer

The cycleway is almost unusable due to its state, it is narrow and difficult to pass people safely the road is unsafe to cycle on due to its slope, width and poor visibility.

The shared cyclepath heading towards the airport is too narrow for cyclists and pedestrians to pass safely. The other side is better but quite narrow in places and the slip road could maybe be used.

Existing shared route is narrow and surface is very poor

Cycle paths all along the school please.

Would be great to see real cycle paths all the way along the high street. (not ones that stop and start on the road- but clear paths) the pavement is very large on both sides so I think one side could be made into a 2 way cycle lane away fr ... [more]

Would be great to see cycle paths al the way along the road leading up to the school.

Any place there is a traffic island cars try to squeeze past too close.

At night it's not safe to use the cycle path to go under the bridge and uo the hill as it's dark and secluded. Having to change lane to use the roundabout could be safer.

Because it's uphill cyclists slow down an busses can get quite closem

Segregated cycle lane, especially on the inner bend, as the majority of cars cut off cyclists whilst those are going up the hill: they have nowhere to escape and are forced to standstills.

Build segregated cycle paths on Banister Road. Currently, especially in the bend, motor vehicles do not leave enough space for cyclists, even though the road is wide enough. Physical barriers are therefore necessary to guarantee cyclist saf ... [more]

Build segregated cycle paths on London Road, continued from the Avenue. Currently, crossing motor traffic (Carlton & Bellevue Roads), as well as parked cars pose a serious hazard. Instead, build the cycle paths between the pavement and park ... [more]

Make cycle way more obvious, then cyclists more likely to cross to use Hill lane cycle ways rather than cycle through common

It would be easy to make a cycleway here, the road is widr

Make the cycleways permanent!!

Keep the cycleways as permanent!!

Bike riders have no separation from busy road with cars zooming by. Lots of cars parked on footpath with high chance of being car-doored

Not enough space for cyclists and pedestrians on this busy stretch where new cyclists lacking in confidence later have to use the pavement (heading out to platform road) due to volume of traffic. Rather than three lanes, please make it two ... [more]

Segregated cycleway would be better here. Some speed signs too as motorists often speed.

The cycle way painted on the foot path here makes a 90 degree bend making it impossible to see who is behind it. It's already busy and too crowded to be safe under normal conditions but does not allow any safe distancing now.

The cycle way painted onto this very steep bit of foot path is already dangerous under normal conditions, but certainly does not allow for safe social distancing

Right turns off of the avenue northbound by bike are difficult/dangerous as the sensor for triggering a right turn green light is in the middle of the intersection and seems to be tuned to recognize cars but not bikes. So as a cyclist yo ... [more]

Right turns from going North on the Avenue onto Highfield Rd by bike have become much harder now with the new cycleway. They were difficult and dangerous already, but now cyclists turning right have to stand in traffic that cannot pass with ... [more]

Provide a cycleway down East Park Terrace, Palmerston Rd, to Queensway along the parks to reduce conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians in the parks. This will also slow down traffic along those roads, making pedestrian access to Sol ... [more]

This is a difficult junction to navigate when travelling between Church Street and Marlborough Road. Often have to wait in the turn boxes, and hope that there isn't a car already occupying it

Need a dropped kerb so cyclists can get down Northam Road without jumping a kerb

Shared use pavement feels very vulnerable next to traffic - use a properly segregated lane on the road instead

Transition to and from the cycleway is poor and needs improvement

Need a dropped kerb so cyclists can get down Northam Road without jumping a kerb

Shared use path is too narrow. Needs dedicated cycle lane

Add separation to the cycle way. Probably spaced wands, so riders at different speeds can still pass each other easily.

Good flat route out of the city.

Segregated cycleway would be better here. Some speed signs too as motorists often speed.

Allow cycles to travel both ways. Such bad planning to force cycles round a one way system with cars! You're supposed to make it easy for people to travel by bike!

The new cycle lanes need segregating from fast flowing traffic. Please put some cones/barriers in on the outside of the white lines.

Segregated cycle lanes and / or traffic calming on Shirley Road. Traffic is really fast and hostile to people on bikes.

Cycle way all down Shirley High Street needed.

Needs cycle way here to link from avenue to Shirley

The main route for residents of Millbrook to access SCN1, but common for close passes at the bend and the mini roundabout with Pennine Road. Perhaps a cycle path through Green Park connecting with Windrush Road?

This hill is an absolute nightmare for close passes in both directions. Drivers often impatient, often overtaking when they can't see oncoming traffic over the brow of the hill.

Shared path doesn't allow enough space from bike riders to social distance from pedestrians. No cycle lane on main road.

Pedestrians waiting for the bus stand in the bike lane. Even when waiting near bus shelter, cyclists cannot socially distance when riding through.

If the top part of hill Lane is getting a cycle path then the bottom half should as well otherwise where will all the cyclists end up after archers road

A cycle track joining two parts of Derby Road, while excluding through motor traffic.

A narrow shared-use footway along Radcliffe Road, forming NCN 23.

The floating bus stop on Saltmarsh Road.

From here, cyclists can choose to turn right onto Central Bridge, or cross the road and head straight on towards Marsh Lane.

Raised crossing in residential area.

Cycleway used as footway since the service road only has a footway across the other side, and an awkward turn with limited visibility due to bushes to cross service road.

Cycleway gives way to footway and heads for strip between dual carriageway and service road.

A 'Cycles Only' sign and no room for pedestrians to get around the bus shelter.

The shared-use footway along West Quay Road

A shared-use footway obstructed by poles.

A shared-use footway is all that could be fitted into this road layout!

Give Way, including on the ghost island! The link between the shared use footway along The Avenue and the entrance to Southampton Common.

Terrible and narrow painted shared use footway along The Avenue in Southampton. But no problem fitting in an extra lane for motor vehicles.

Shared use footway along The Avenue

A busy urban footway has been decreed to be a cycleway as well!

The moment the cycle path quality drops, the fast chap switches onto the road. The road is also slightly more direct. There are no markings to warn car park users of the shared use cycleway/footway, only the sign.

Cycle path alongside traffic-calmed road.

Even fast cyclists use this path!

NCN2 path at Weston, next to Southampton Water.

The end of the segregated cycleway from Marsh Lane and the start of mandatory cycle lanes on Central Bridge, with motor traffic queuing for the Itchen Bridge.

The cycleway approaching the turn onto Central Bridge.

Junction crossing on Marsh Lane segregated cycleway.

Two-way segregated cycleway on Marsh Lane, at junction with sideroad.

An almost invisible bus stop on the Marsh Lane two-way segregated cycleway.

Unusually fine tactiles on cyclepath past retail park.

Cycle route through retail park car park.

NCN route 236 crosses Western Esplanade on an ordinary 2-stage pedestrian crossing and not a toucan crossing.


Advanced stop line and filter lane with green tarmac - good practice. But why is the cycle lane so narrow?

East Andrews Park, Southampton
