Road surface along this entire stretch from Ferry Path in the east to Croftholme Lane in the west is appalling and very dangerous. Re-thinking of cycle paths through the route, and then proper resurfacing is urgently required.

Add a crossing here to make it possible for children to access the play park safely. The complex crossing 50m up is difficult to navigate and the constant standing traffic and people routinely running red lights makes this a high risk area ... [more]

Add a crossing to improve safety for children going to the school and playground on Vinery Road. Reduce speeding as the roads is unnecessarily dangerous, noisy and polluted

Reduce illegal speeding

Car’s speed along the road, traffic charming would make the road safer.

This pedestrian crossing does not currently change to green for pedestrians even when there are no motor vehicles to be seen in either direction. In fact it should be the opposite, with shorter than normal waits for pedestrians.

The on-road cylepath from the Barnwell Road roundabout to the Ditton Lane junction could really do with repainting: most of the red has now vanished.

Would be good to allow outdoor tables and chairs for the cafes.

This Street needs a modal filter. Cars and delivery vans use it as a rat run between Victoria Road and Chesterton Road. Traffic speeds are frequently too high despite the 20mph speed limit. A filter in Carlyle Road will add to problems her ... [more]

This crossing is really dangerous for pedestrian and cyclists. The traffic lights don't take them into consideration at all and it is a dangerous point in a otherwise great cycling path.

Island for pedestrian crosing in hihgly transited area doesn't allow for social distancing.

Filter lights do not seem to detect cyclists waiting to turn into Eddington Avenue

Farm entrance and exit needs to give way to cyclists on the cycle path. No markings are provided and vehicles turn in and out without care without looking along the cycle path for vehicles

After a week, the contraflow cycle lane through the Histon Road roadworks is still marked as Road Closed. Why does the county council always fail to take cycling seriously?

It's so easy to cycle along and across Mill Road with through traffic removed.

Footway widened a bit on Mill Road, even though there are no people coming in and out of shops here.

Cambridgeshire County Council has closed Mill Road at the railway bridge except to buses, cycles and pedestrians - and then puts up these signs which totally ignore buses, cycles and pedestrians.... And it's not a one-off, they did the sam ... [more]

Travelling westbound, add a straight-on filter lane for bicycles, open when either the eastbound car or bus lane is open. There's no need to make bikes wait while cars are travelling westbound on the Newmarket Road, and no need for bikes ... [more]

Narrow pavement and many overgrown hedges make it impossible for two people to pass at the same time, let alone do so with 2m distance.

Road is effectively single lane here due to on street parking on a blind bend. Oncoming vehicular traffic will often force cyclists into the kerb or the the wing mirrors of the parked cars (depending on direction of travel)

Close half of the road to cars and open it to cyclists and pedestrians and buses. Newmarket Road is wide enough for contraflow car traffic, even at the bridge here.

Cyclists share cycle path with pedestrians and it is dangerous for both groups. There needs to be a clearer division between which part of the pavement is for walking, and which for cycling.

Carriageway-narrowing / footway-widening for social distancing on Mill Road - linked with the closure of the railway bridge.

This hedge is very overgrown and reduces the pavement width. Also lots of litter in the hedge.

This pathway is overgrown and neglected. It need cleaning up to be safe.

There are plans to bring in a modal filter between the Beehive Centre and Beehive island which makes access from Silverwood Close dangerous, we can't then turn right safely into traffic on bikes if cars are forced to use the Beehive Centre ... [more]

Replace very aggressive chicane with one or two bollards to allow cycles to use this wide path

Replace chicanes at both ends of path with a bollard, so that cargo bikes can get through

The works have started on the Mill Road bridge bus gate.

Narrow road and traffic at a standstill on weekends and peak times. Incredibly dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians trying to cross, and pollution levels put local residents at risk. The road should be closed to vehicles except for delive ... [more]

Magdelene Bridge is one-way for pedestrians post-covid-19 - cyclists beware pedestrians changing sides.

Widen pavement / provide cut-through and alternative walk behind the hedge. There is a dropped curb off Velo's walk here, and people are led straight onto a very narrow footway.

Bad chicane / anti-pedestrian railing forces people into conflicting situation precisely at a blind corner in the path. Really dumb design, forces people to get too close to each other without being able to see each other. Needs to be remov ... [more]

There are wide hatched areas on both sides of the carriageway that could be used for pop-up cycle lanes, but they wouldn't be very long and the rest of Madingley Road would still be a nightmare so is it worth it?

Graffit on the bridge surface reads: HANDS OFF MILL ROAD and there are 👋 symbols. Reaction to proposals to restrict traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic. https://www.camcycle.org.uk/blog/2020/06/camcycle-supports-covid-19- ... [more]

Narrow road. Use full width of highway to add segregated cycleway.

Some urgently needed repairs on this major route for key workers to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

Very poor layout for cyclists here with tight bends and criss-crossing footpath. Traffic signals poorly arranged for cyclists approaching from Victoria Avenue.

Mill Road too narrow , heavy traffic, dangerous for bikes. Make one way for cars and two way bike lanes or at least add bike lanes

The "up" cycleway here is stupid, mixed with unnecessary parked short-stay cars and queuing cars. In the other direction the junction is 30mph not 20mph, wide and scary, with cars turning across cyclists. There's a silly cycle lane on the p ... [more]

Unnecessary chicane here - straighten out route for going under bridge

Clumsy signposting here means it's confusing to find the busway path to the station when entering the P&R

Remove or reduce unnecessary gates on path. Replace with bollards if required to prevent motor traffic

Remove unnecessary gates here

Road to be closed off (with bollards) to through traffic to prevent rat-running cars

Temporary 'widening' of the pavement for social distancing purposes. These barriers don't go all the way to the curve at the top of Sidney Street, but they do show that this can be done without inconveniencing buses but helping pedestrians. ... [more]

Nice new cycle path on Green End Rd has no good interface to very narrow shared use path going NE Milton Rd, trapped behind fence. Yet traffic has 3 lanes going townwards there. Scrap fence and use current inner traffic lane for cycle + ped ... [more]

Critical access link to the Biomedical Campus connecting Red Cross Lane to new Queen Edith's Way cycle roundabout. Road needs to have all on-street parking removed to make space for bikes. Ongoing parking enforcement will be required.

Road and pavement surfaces are unsafe for cycling. Cycle path on the road encourages cars to pass when there is not enough room, and there is certainly no space for cyclists to move away from the kerb to distance from pedestrians. Needs a ... [more]

Road closure

Road closure .

Madingley Road is not safe for pedestrians. Cycles share the same space and they whizz along at great speed. There needs to be separated space for pedestrians and cycles and the pedestrian path needs to be wide enough so that people can pas ... [more]

Cycle parking needed on York Street, which would clear bikes from pavements, and provide secure cycle parking.

Cycle bridge along the railway - convenient link between Impington, Science Park, North railway station, King's hedges area and the path along the river (out of the city) or eastwards towards Bottisham

Cycle bridge along the railway - convenient link between Impington, Science Park, North railway station, King's hedges area and the path along the river (out of the city) or eastwards towards Bottisham

The hedge outside 74 Hills Rd overhangs the cycle path, taking 2/3 of the width of the path away and creating a pinch point for cyclists and pedestrians. Cutting the hedge back to the limit of the marked cycle path would solve this problem ... [more]

The hoarding and scaffolding here makes a very narrow pinch point on the footway. The car parking space in front of this section should be cones off to allow people to pass each other safely.

The safest place to ride in the streets of Romsey, Cambridge is the middle of the road. How about some road markings or modifications to encourage that, and to help reduce confrontational experiences with motor traffic?

MILL ROAD BRIDGE. Cycle path on the left, inboard of the pavement, for cyclists travelling towards Petersfield; and a similar cycle path on opposite side of road, for cyclists travelling towards Romsey. WITH THE PROPOSED ONE WAY TRAFFIC FOR ... [more]

Earlier, in view of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, I recommended having pedestrians moving in a ONE-WAY system across MILL ROAD BRIDGE (eg on the left hand pavement going from Romsey to Petersfield, and again on the opposite pavement comin ... [more]

The section of Arbury Road between Leys Road and Milton Road is narrow and really dangerous for cyclists. Modal filter west of Leys Road would open up road space for safe cycling and socially distancing pedestrians

Arbury Road should have a modal filter to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists and improve air quality.

Need for modal filter here to improve cyclist and pedestrian safety and reduce incidence of speeding vehicles outside school and long eastern stretch of very narrow road.

Security needs to be transformed in the Cyclepoint!

Crossing is made dangerous by frequent red-light-jumping drivers. A yellow box and enforcement cameras would help.

This area is polluted and dangerous. The taxi rank and pick-up/drop-off facilities should both be moved to the car park and the station plaza turned into an actual plaza.

Inappropriate and unnecessary through road induces rat running. Close Akeman Street here east of junction with Darwin Drive.

That barrier... Presumably given the lack of tourists as a terrorist target it can be left open or removed

Inappropriate and unnecessary through road induces rat running. Close Darwin Drive here north of junction with Akeman Street.

Pedestrianise Magdalene St. - it's too narrow for pedestrian safety in its current configuration.

Corner is too narrow for buses to pass without overlapping narrow pavements and endangering pedestrians. Inner ring road should be fitted with bus gates and bus traffic moved out of the centre.

Insufficient space to wait for (slow) crossing signal change and allow cycle traffic to turn onto Midsummer Common. Reprogram lights to prioritise pedestrian traffic as a possible quick fix?

Inappropriate through-traffic is very problematic here. These back streets could be disconnected with a simple barrier SW to NE across this junction.

Dangerous with cars overtaking and narrow road

The pavement is very uneven.

Crossing to/from end of new shared path parallel to drain to go to Milton St John's Innovation Centre etc is terrible. A small 3.5m wide bridge over the drain with a crossing of Cowley Rd to reach Orwell Furlong would be a far more pleasant ... [more]
