Horribly narrow pavements. Close this road and make it pedestrians only.

Traffic island needed to help walkers and cyclists cross the A10.

Need an off road cycle path on this road which is no longer the main A road so could be narrowed and off road cycle paths provided.

Surface of Briary Lane is badly eroded making cycling challenging on what is otherwise a nice route out of town.

Build the bridge and cycle route to Melbourn advocated by the A10 campaign and local business.

Use space alongside the railway to create a shared walking and cycling route from Rosecomb to the new Lancaster Road housing to create a route into the town away from the main road.

Use space alongside the railway to create a shared walking and cycling route from Rosecomb to the new Lancaster Road housing to create a route into the town away from the main road.

This footpath provides a direct route via Green Drift to the station so ideally should be upgraded to a shared use path for cycling. possibly by routing around the lake next to the railway.

In the absence of a safe cycle path and given the high speeds on this road, the pavement here needs converting to shared use as far as Downlands, but ideally into the town centre with Baldock Road narrowed as it is no longer a main A road.

Good to see what looks like a cycle path being built from here to Therfield Road, but the entrance off the road here needs legally correct bollards to LTN1/20 standards.

Very nasty crossing. Poor sightlines and cars doing 60 mph. Needs something to make this safe for families to cross on cycles.

Make it possible to use the closed road to rear of station eastbound plaform to create an accesible walking and cycling route out of the station platform, as no lift.

Challenging junction to cross on bikes when leaving the station as there are 6 directions to look. Needs a toucan crossing.

This barrier has appeared on the @Sustrans NCN12 route between Graveley and Letchworth. Hard for any cyclist to deal with, it will exclude all those using non-standard or adapted cycles. It should be removed. @WeAreCyclingUK @hertscycling … [more]

Car parking but no cycle parking at the Broadway Hotel, Letchworth

Road closure but no real cycle access

Road closure with pedestrian access, but improvement needed for cycling.

Road closure with pedestrian access, but improvement needed for cycling.

Outside the One Garden City museum, Letchworth - acres of space for cars, the only cycle parking is at the supermarket on the far side.

Use the link via Orchard Road and the church to join Baldock station up to National Route 12 and the High Street as a safe cycling route.

It would be easy to remove the barriers and make this fit for cycling.

Going from Letchworth to Hitchin (no great distance) it's clear there's a shared-use path - in the other direction you wouldn't have a clue.

Road closure with no proper provision for cycling.

Traffic volume and speed is extremely high. Likely to be through-traffic, rather than just local residents. Road should also ideally be 20mph, rather than 30mph zone (but unenforced)

This pavement is really narrow and acts as a thoroughfare for families on school drop off. The cars come right up to the edge of the kerb - which is terrifying when you've got a 3 and 5 year old walking with you! Please think about making … [more]

Signage for motorists and safer crossing for cyclists.

SIgnage for motorists and ease of crossing for cyclists.

Crossing the A1M at this point is tricky - no signage to motorists to warn of cycles crossing.

Cowards Lane appears to be used as a rat run by High Street traffic. It currently has a weight restruction. The lane is very narrow and winding with no footway. It is part of a National Cycle route. It is used by cyclists, horses and … [more]

London Road Between Buntingford & Royston There are numerous cycle/footpaths that are either overgrown, damaged or non-existent. The ones that are there are pretty uncomfortable, dangerous, or impossible to use because of overgrown trees … [more]

Upgrade footpath to cycle way so cyclists going from Codicote to Knebworth by way of Gipsy Lane (southern) do not need to detour along busy Gipsy Lane (northern) and Park Lane.

Pavement on left hand side (when heading towards Victoria Rd) is too narrow and uneven. Impossible for prams or wheelchairs to travel on it. Even it out and prevent parking opposite.

Zebra crossing required, the one on the other side of the roundabout is dangerous as many drivers travel too fast and are unable to see pedestrians crossing while they're driving round the corner next to Butt's Close

Reduce speed limit as fast cars plus narrow road make this not fun for cycling,

Prohibit parking on this end to allow for 2 cars to pass and also leave enough room for Refuse trucks to pass

Prohibit parking on the corner

Prohibit parking on corner

Prohibit parking opposite junction

No through access sign required for Gaping Lane with unsuitable for vehicles + access for Cricket/Hockey club directional signs via Bedford Street/Lavender Way

Pathway was made too narrow for safe pedestrian passing, especially as it is used for school access and a public right of way

Require dropped curb for pedestrians at the junction, it is missing on one side and the curb is too high for people with mobility issues

Pavement too narrow at crossing, no room for pedestrians to pass others waiting at the crossing

B636 from Codicote to Welwyn is a very busy road with overhanging bushes and trees. The roadway is wide enough to accept a reduced width so that a wider cycle/pedestrian path can be added going south to Fulling Mill Lane.

Segregated cycle way between Hitchin and Lower Stondon/ Henlow Camp continuing to Langford. Or install speed limit to 40mph and cameras.

Remove the gyratory. Traffic speeds are high. TfL is removing gyratories in London with good effect especially when combined with public realm improvements eg Highbury Corner

Pedestrian crossing required on all arms of the roundabout. Pedestrians have to wait for vehicles to give way.

Some form of protection / priority / lane for cyclists on all arms of the roundabout.

Safety measures for cyclists here. I’ve had to stop in the roundabout to avoid getting knocked off by vehicles coming from Nightingale Road and turning right.

Create segregated cycle lane from Hitchin to Letchworth.

Narrow footpath, one way only. Increase width of pavement by excavating from embankment.

Add an entrance to the back of the station from St Michael’s Mount to reduce the amount of pedestrians needing to go under the bridge on the single-file pavement.

Too many oversized vehicles get stuck at the bridge and have to turn back. Put more signs/sensor warning lights closer to the Cambridge Rd crossroads.

One incredibly narrow, dark path going under the bridge. Single file only at the moment. Add a footbridge over, or expand the footpath width.

Existing pavement too narrow between B&M and Grove Rd roundabout.

Very narrow footpath under the bridge, busy due to the station

Narrow pavement

Narrow pavement- only one way if someone at the other end

Narrow pavements

Narrow with plants growing over the path too

The access for cycles to Hitchin town centre is poor. A cycle way along the river looks possible.

Pavement here is often restricted by vegetation either bushes or branches from above causing you to walk in the road

Oakfield Ave is too narrow for the traffic using it. Broadmead was the intended link when estate was built as it is wider but people use OA. Restrict use by Van's or hgv's

Improve security at station for cycles

Introduce the foot path link that should have been created from foot bridge path to end of station car park. This was a S106 item when Benslow Lane was developed adjacent, in the 80's 90's but was mysteriously missed off the final draft.

This is a common route for dog walkers and cyclists, with a path leading into Laurel Way from Burymead Icknield Way from Letchworth. Wider path and marked cycle lane needed to safely complete the loop back into Hitchin.

Fallen tree

Properly clear back vegetation and debris to increase available width of dual-use and footpaths (both sides of road from roundabout at north to Deard's End Ln at south). Currently impossible to safely cycle along provided infrastructure.

Very Dangerous Difficult Crossing for Cyclists and Walkers, Low Visibility of Cars travelling fast around the bend.

Difficult for cyclists and pedestrians to cross this busy section of the A505. Some form of crossing/ underpass required to make safer and enable families to use the roads either side of the main road safely

Make a link from improved junction with A602 roundabout to Bridleway north of Graveley Lane. Already a footpath so widen.

Baldock High Street needs a cycle lane.

Along works road from Baldock to Letchworth. More space needed for cyclists. It is a convenient route to connect both towns & already used by some cyclists.

A real cycle track between Stevenage and Knebworth, remove the overtaking lane and reduce speed limit

Reduce road to single lane, traffic light controlled. This would leave plenty of room for cycling and pedestrians

No footpath or verge to walk on

Lack of space for cyclists and difficult for pedestrians to cross. Convert to one way street, along with station road and use the other half for two way segregated cycle lanes. Provide a zebra crossing for pedestrians across Bridge Road.

Difficult roundabout for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate on NCR 12 and school route. There is enough space and existing layout lends itself to conversion to Dutch roundabout.

One has to cycle on a narrow road here. Travelling west the road is narrow with 2 pedestrian traffic islands in the centre of the road which makes it very narrow and vehicles after either try and overtake a cyclist at this pinch point and … [more]

It is very dangerous on this road travelling north. There is no cycleway and one has to ride on the road with 2 pinch points where there are pedestrian traffic islands which narrow the road and make it very dangerous.

There is a combined footpath and cycleway from Norton to Stotfold. However at the Norton end you have to go onto a main road at a dangerous point and it is not well signposted. There should be better links from this cycleway into … [more]

Dangerously narrow cycle lane needs widening. Having a lane there means drivers don't feel they need to give cyclists any additional space when passing, but there are sections along St. Michael's Road where the cycle lane isn't even as … [more]

Restrictive barrier needs to be removed to make walking, cycling and wheeling more inclusive. They discourage rather than welcome, discriminating against people who use wheelchairs, mobility scooters, handcycles, cargo bikes or … [more]

Car have priority at this cycle crossing point. If the cycleway was on a raised table crossing giving priority to the cyclists it would be much safer. The road is a residential one shopp not busy.

Consider providing access to Royston Town Centre from the East of the town via Priory Gardens.

Secure access rights for safer North-South cycleway along Dog Kennel Lane and past the Manor House
