The new covered cycle parking opposite Tesco Express where the market is in Royston. Most welcome. Looking forward to using this.

Path through Bancroft Gardens, Hitchin

Link to housing development by Baldock station.

Link to housing development by Baldock station - the height restriction is for the main road under the railway, not the path.

Pedestrianised area in central Baldock

Pretty although muddy pathway through flowers. Right alongside the A1(M) with motorists flying by just metres away on massive tarmacked road. Very noisy.

nice field though surface is in bad shape

a lonesome tree muddy, dirt surface


Pretty field and trees, muddy surface, right next to big massive motorway on the other side of the hedge -- which doesn't protect you from the noise.

bit of tarmac farm road

Mud / dust

Muddy cycle route next to gigantic motorway junction at Letchworth.

Pretty pathway sandwiched between a farm field and the A1(M). It is very noisy here, sadly, which spoils it. The flowers are nice but it is a little galling that I have to cycle in the mud next to one of the widest, smoothest motorways in … [more]

Under the A1(M)

Hitchin flyover

A good crossing here and a cycle route up Windmill Hill (yes, I know there's a bit of a climb) would provide an excellent link between Hitchin Girls School and the town centre.


Hitchin flyover

One of these children said 'There's a lot of people on bikes today' when they saw us. But these were just about the only others we'd seen in Royston.

Stairs at Letchworth station - no cycle rail, no working lift.

Former parcels lift locked out of use at Letchworth station

Disabled parking at the beautifully restored Spirella Building - but not a trace of cycle parking.

Steps at end of footpath to Letchworth station - this could easily be replaced by a ramp for a useful cycle link.

Sign at the Fox and Hounds, Barley.

Pinch points give no traffic calming benefit and create a well known hazard for cyclists. Remove and replace with cycle friendly traffic calming. Reduce the apparent width of the roads using cycle lanes and remove the centerline.

Green corridors provide the opportunity for quality, traffic free walking and cycling.

The path connecting the Tene to the Twitchell / Simpson Drive needs little action other than to replace the barriers in the distance with ride through bollards.

Existing driveway used to form link between Sale Drive and Royston Road NHDC route 1 HIGH priority

The High Street has plenty of width to introduce cycle lanes. The apparent reduction in traffic lane width would help keep speeds down. Suggest combining this with road centerline removal. The mass of car parking provided needs to be … [more]

HCC link 7 would follow the field boundary on the right.

Visibility where this passage (HCC link 14) emerges onto the High St is non-existant. The footway is set hard against the building frontage so there is no chance of people seeing each other. Making this passage into a shared path would be … [more]

Visibility where this passage (to the recreation ground, HCC link 14) emerges onto the High St is non-existent. The footway is set right back against the building frontage, giving people no chance of seeing each other. Making this passage … [more]

This passage (HCC link 14) is too narrow and too blind for shared use. Keep as footpath only and direct cyclists onto Simpson Drive and the Tene.

Clothall Rd is relatively busy. On street parking on the west side means that cycle lanes are unlikely to be appropriate. Whilst the east verge is wide, and free from side turnings to the south of Hartfield school, it is obstructed by an … [more]

Grosvenor Rd is a cul-de-sac linking to HCC proposed path 15.

Drop kerbs or raise turning head to create seamless transition from road to path

Speeding is a problem on this road due to the inappropriate high capacity, high speed design. The sign gives it all away.

Just how much road do three cars need ? This road is much wider than it needs to be. It starts and finishes as a 2 lane single carriageway. There is no reason why this section would not also work as a 2 lane single carriageway. There are … [more]

All of the traffic that goes down the 5 lane dual carriageway must get to it down a 2 lane single carriageway. The excess road space performs no useful function, it just encourages speeding.

The Berlin wall. There is no connection between these two estates that back onto each other. When new housing is built it MUST be porous to walking and cycling, encouraging short trips to be made without cars.

Hatching emphasises that this is a space for vehicles, not for people. Use more creative measures like different surfacing, visually narrowing the width, junction tables, removal of centerlines and priority markings etc to create a more … [more]

There is no good reason to ban cycling on this path. It would make a very positive traffic free link parallel to Burns Road without eroding the rights of confident cyclists to ride in the carriageway on Burns Rd. Recommendations: 1. … [more]

This is an obvious, natural link from the Industrial area to the estates east of the North Road. The existing uncontrolled crossing is bizarrely off line, introducing inconvenience for the sake of it. All of that guard railing gives out … [more]

Plenty of width for 2 way cycling in Upper King St

Exit from the down (Cambridge-bound) platform at Royston station to the car-park

Royston station ticket barriers - the type we're supposed to be getting at Cambridge station.
