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

Unnecessary obstructions at the start of the route through the Oughtonhead Common Nature Reserve, Hitchin

Fallen tree

Barrier to contraflow cycling - which really should have allowed here.

No level access at Baldock station

horrendous A-frame barrier that stops anyone with a tricycle, recumbent, or any form of adapted cycle for people with disabilities

Horrendous A-frame barrier that stops anyone with a tricycle, recumbent, or any form of adapted cycle for people with disabilities. Even more horribly, this is right next to the Woolgrove school, for special needs, thus ensuring that the ... [more]

Couldn't a link be provided from the fenced-off estates of north Royston, perhaps with a bridge attached to the railway bridge (above), to link to the track alongside the A10 to Melbourn?

All cul de sacs should be permeable on foot and by bike. Make travel by bike easy, painless and quick and there is a greater likelihood that people will cycle rather than driving. Remove all barriers, ensure all crossovers have dropped k ... [more]

Remove unnecessary bollards from the rear entrance to Hartfield school.

Bollards are very badly positioned, right in the path of riders entering or leaving. This forces riders to concentrate on the bollards when they should be looking out for traffic. Visibility is poor and the design of Yeomanry Drive (no d ... [more]

Make transition to roadway truly flush. Bollard is an unnecessary hazard and is not needed. Remove excess bollards.

Make transition to roadway truly flush. Bollard is an unnecessary hazard and is not needed.

Remove barriers and drop kerbs on all existing and proposed cycle paths. Use raised table crossings over roads to slow traffic and highlight the route.

More barriers, extremely difficult to negotiate on a bike, and it isn't even over the surfaced part of the path. Try that with a child on a trailerbike in tow. Remove and replace with simple bollards.

Anti cycling barriers. Remove and replace with simple bollards.

Redundant lighting column on the right should be removed as it makes accessing the path difficult.

These bollards are very badly detailed. It is very awkward to get through them, impossible with a child trailer. Change to a single, central post and remove the redundant lighting column on the right.

Now you see it, now you don't... See #16005 for what is just around that corner. Visibility where this pointless path meets Weston Way is appaling. You cannot see approaching traffic until you are about to collide with it. Hence the a ... [more]

The only time that you can see the cars at this dangerous path junction is when they are queueing across the end of the path. If you manage to get through the barriers, you still have to weave through the queue, and you can't see vehicle ... [more]

No way through ! Recognising that the entry onto the road is downright dangerous, Herts County Council had the bright idea of putting a fence in the way. Try getting through that with a child trailer in the school rush ! This path ... [more]
