Pop up cycle lane needed

Large brick and steel barriers preventing access for all to traffic-free route. Remove barriers and surface for all year round use for all.

Cycle route with massive barriers preventing use by many. Get the barriers out

The path is too narrow, poor visbility at the junction, and often impassable without the adjacent A6 because of flooding. Even a small amount of rain produces a puddle 10 feet wide, 30 feet long and 6 inches deep.

Improve cycle path conditions and road markings where cycle way crosses road

Fast road (50 mph), busy most of the time, little blind 'summit' half way along. Could be a good connection between north-west and south-west Loughborough.

The bike lane is useless because it suddenly ends in two places where there is a central refuge for pedestrians. Twice now I have nearly been hit by a bus when travelling along here, I am now avoiding it as I regard it as unsafe. It either ... [more]

Bushes need to be kept right down and leaves cleared to maintain cycle access.

As per #153767

Extend joint cycle / footpath from East Goscote to Rearsby by making the footpath joint use. If the path could be widened it would also have traffic calming measures

Existing cycleway in dreadful condition... needs repair.

The existing path along the old railway line from Pitsford Dr through to Clowbridge Dr is now in a very poor state, with large patches of mud and uneven surfaces. If this track was resurfaced it would provide a good clear and traffic free c ... [more]

We don’t use a car to visit Bradgate due to parking issues but the path on Bradgate Rd is quite narrow for young children on bikes and scooters directly adjacent to fast road so a wider shared use path would be safer.

No safe cycle path from Woodhouse to Woodhouse Eaves. Cycling only able on road with cars overtaking on bends. Would link Loughborough via track from Beaumanor Hall to Woodhouse Eaves and Beacon Hill

Ban cars parking in the marked cycleways with double yellow lines. Children cannot use them to go to school especially when parents are collecting!

Improve surface for cycling as a route to Loughborough and the university from Woodhouse Eaves

I have cycled from Sileby to Barrow-on – Soar, but it was extremely dangerous because car drivers were very close to me as they overtook along the Sileby Barrow Road. I would like to see a cycle lane from Sileby that links up to Mountsorr ... [more]

New cycle path is useful but lack of green man/pedestrian crossing at new traffic lights on slip road is dangerous. Why wasn't this installed with the recent changes?

Used to get to Watermead and Cedars Academy, narrow road and although speed restricted it is very dangerous, one fatality this year that I know of

Cycle way crossing the road at this junction is in a position that makes it impossible to see cars turning in (often at speed) from Ling Road. A suggestion would be to make the crossing completely adjacent to Ling Road (i.e. move the Bea ... [more]

Existing cycle path is used as a car park by the hand car wash, time for a new cycle path

Very narrow street, several close passes here every day.

The cycleway (green route 1 and NCN 48) passes through the pub car park. This is not safe and is now barricaded so you have to carry your bike over the barricade or down steps. Remove the steps to give good access to the towpath.

Needed cycle lane to go from the cycle route and go down towards syston

Goes down to a cycle route but no cycle path, cars wizz so fast passed you

Between barrow and sileby. Create cycle way as Sileby kids have travel to secondary school in barrow and many don't qualify for the school bus

The cycle lane for riding against the traffic is not marked clearly meaning cars are not aware you are allowed to cycle against the flow.

New cycle path is useful but lack of green man/pedestrian crossing at new traffic lights on slip road is dangerous. Why wasn't this installed with the recent changes?

This a strategic cycle link between the University and the Town centre. The car parking spaces must be removed and replaced by a segregated cycle lane. This would have immense benefits for the thousands of university students and workers an ... [more]

This is a very wide road. A segregated cycle route could be easily implemented here

New cycle path is helpful, but no green man on lights to indicate to cyclists and pedestrians when it is safe to cross - needs pedestrian crossing at all exits on this roundabout

Bridge has fast moving traffic and poor visibilty making it narrow and dangerous for cyclists.

This stretch of cycle path is very narrow, completely unlit and prone to vegetation encroaching the route. It's very scary using this section in the dark as you are pushed out into the traffic without any street lighting. A wider path, si ... [more]

30 miles per hour. Traffic very fast

Widen cycle way to stop the need to cycle on pavements

Do we need a dual carriageway that only stretches for 500m? Segregated cycleway would be appreciated here

Dangerous bends for both cyclists and pedestrians, could be improved with road straightening and a pathway.

Allow cycles to share the path or travel on the road against one way traffic flow to ease access to Sainsburys and Ashby Road.

Cut back hedging on cycle way so that it can be used as designed.

Allow cycling at all times

Allow cyclists to ride against the flow on this one way street

The designated cycle route through the market place cannot be used during the day! Allow cycling at all times on cycle routes.

Better road markings and signage for cyclists turning right from Syston Road (heading east) onto cycleway (and also signage for cars to slow down and warn of cyclist turning ahead)

Excellent lane with some potholes, could easily link up many other routes if formally a cycle lane, particularly route from Loughborough to Woodhouse, swithland and beyond to Leicester

This is a really dangerous junction for pedestrians and cyclists. It is very wide so takes a while to get across and traffic comes in 3 directions, (off the dual carriageway, from across the carriageway and out of the road) a lot being HGV ... [more]

Bradgate Park was left to the city but 30% of us haven't got a car. Put a 30mph zone on Bradgate Road and use the speed camera revenue to build this public footpath into a bike path. Once it's finished you can put the limit back up to 60 a ... [more]

Resurface the road and have a cycle lane.

Regular cycling route , single lane at the moment

Regular cycling route , single lane at the moment

Cars travelling too fast

Add cycle tracks along the A6

Gynsill Lane has a short section of cycleway linking into it from either end but neither end has a proper connection to the carriageway or better still a continuation cycle route. Recent development creates increased traffic and cycle dema ... [more]

The existing combined cycleway/footway is too narrow

Why do we have "Cyclists Dismount" signs on this cycleway, but not on the western side of the roundabout, where you are directed much closer to the parapet railings

This cycle cut through can be obstructed by parked cars. We need waiting restrictions that are enforced

Convert cycle lanes to Mandatory and ensure that their width is maintained when the road is resurfaced

Widen the existing cycle lanes.

Convert cycle lanes to Mandatory, and widen to at least the minimum width

Cut back the bushes to give proper visibility of traffic coming from the west along Terry Yardley Way with its 50mph speed limit

The Toucan crossing does not change until all the motor vehicles have gone. This can be over a minute. Used the "recommended" timings to give reasonable priority to pedestrians

The existing layout results in sharp bends and restricted visibility here. The recent addition of the Aldi store has increased the traffic on Allendale Road. Realign the cycleway to cross Main Street and Allendale Road away from the roundab ... [more]

The existing "uncontrolled" cycleway crossing should be combined with the existing nearby Pelican crossing and converted to a Toucan crossing

The existing route goes round the houses, with barriers at both ends. It should skirt the roundabout, with Toucan crossings, as suggested originally at the County Council ? cyclist liaison meetings

There is no provision to use the cycle facilities (cycleway and Toucan crossings) when approaching this junction along Leicester Road

The access from Jubilee Way / Lemyngton Street to the contraflow cycle lane in Baxtergate takes a lot of finding

The access from Jubilee Way / Lemyngton Street to the contraflow cycle lane in Baxtergate takes a lot of finding

Existing contraflow cycle lane is often blocked by parked vehicles (there are also double yellow lines and no loading at any time restrictions). There is no enforcement

The cycleway / pavement between the junction with Old Ashby Road, Loughborough and Leicester Road, Shepshed is too narrow (minimum width about 600mm). The adjacent road is being rebuilt, so we will, perhaps, get a track built to the current ... [more]

There needs to be a cycle path all along Forest Road, going into and out of Old Woodhouse, as you get many motorists overtaking cyclyst on dangerous bends.

This is a one way street, inbound, with cars parked on one side and delivery vehicles frequently on the other, no safe we to cycle out of town towards University (some cycle illegally against the flow). Needs dedicated cycle lane in both d ... [more]

Segregated cycleway needed to bridge the gap between Shelthorpe Rd and the inner bypass

Cycle lane needed to the station

Pop-up cycle lane needed

Cycleway along here to help people cycling to the railway station

The road is a dual carriageway reduced to one lane in each direction. The combined pavement is too narrow. Move the traffic to the offside of each carriageway and build a protected (eg by kerbs and vertical wands) cycle lane on the nearsid ... [more]

The combined 2 way pavement/cycleway is less than 5 feet wide. It has to be 2 way to enable safe crossings. The existing bus lane can be used as a cycle lane, the bus lane being moved to the offside lane, and 2 way traffic using the other c ... [more]

Busy, fast and narrow road with only partial pavement. Dangerous for cyclists but an essential link

Cycle link needed between Anstey and Gorse Hill, which is now the start of a cycleway into Leicester

Better segregation needed along the A6 for those parking and cycling into the city centre and elsewhere.

Too many parked cars and genersl traffic in Mountsorrel. I have been knocked off my bike by someone ooening thir door into me. Not good for a sustrans route.

Not enough room for bikes. Cars travelling too fast and lots of potholes from the "dinosaur"right up to roundabout with A6

Cycle way needed on both sides of busy A road

Cycle path needed on both sides of A6 to cycle out of Loughborough

MTB trail around these woods is required

Off road MTB trails are needed. There is plenty of scope to do something very exciting

An off-road cycle route around the park. There is plenty of space and the main path is too crowded.

Widen/straighten to reduce conflict. The desire-line is visible.

Between Waitrose Roundabout and the Green in Mountsorrel the Loughborough road is full of parked cars, but fairly busy and has turns in it which make cycling difficult and dangerous. There is no other reasonable route (I would happily be co ... [more]

Many people walking/running/riding bicycles on a very narrow pathway

Many people walking,running and riding bicycles on a very narrow pathway

Too many cars parked on what is a busy road with no cycle lane.
