90581Photo #90581The raised planting obstructs this traffic free route from Hills Road to Station Road. There is not a suitable safe route for cyclists travelling from Hills Road to Station Road. This may not have been intended as a primary cycling route but the heavy tarmac stains reveal that this is a popular route, especially those unwilling to be flattened by a bus on station place.Obstruction:

90266Photo #90266Note the LACK of bollards on Burrell's Walk. This is good, since it is likely that someone would hit any bollard placed here during term time when it gets VERY busy.

Traffic signs should NOT put onto cycle lanes or paths, it's just irresponsible. In this particular instance it is all the more dangerous as cyclists using that lane mostly come across the crossing from Gresham Road, turn left onto the cycle path - and straight into the back of the sign, or have to swerve into the cycle lane for cyclists towards the crossing.Obstruction:
