Visibility at the Station Road / Lucas Lane junction is relatively poor.

Station Road heading out of Ashwell

Station Road, approaching Lucas Lane junction on the left (where the red car has just emerged).

Morning rush hour, traffic reduced to single lane serving both directions, no traffic queues. Here only SIX cars are waiting as the lights change. This road is grossly oversized for the traffic using it where it splits into dual … [more]

Baldock Rd in Letchworth (formerly the A505) is an urban two lane single carriageway for all but a short stretch outside the retail park. Plenty of roadside activity here - driveways and properties fronting straight onto it.

Hitchin St in Baldock.

Paynes Park might feel like an out of town ring road but in fact it is only 100m from the High Street. It is the inappropriate road conditions that create the hostile environment. Take away the traffic and the one way system, develop … [more]

This pavement is too narrow for successful shared use. The usable width is reduced further by the many road signs and other street furniture that are located in the path. Here the effective (ie usable) width is only 1m - too narrow for a … [more]

Elmside Walk leads to an attractive path up to the swimming pool (indoor pool and a fantastic open air lido in summer). Also links to the residential streets of Bearton.

Most people prefer to ride in the road than on the pavement unless they are forced to do otherwise. Even here on Bedford Road where conditions are pretty hostile. If this footway is to be converted to shared use it should be taken into the … [more]

Brand Street is one of Hitchin's main shopping streets. The 1999 Hitchin Transport Plan called for the traffic restricted zone to be extended to cover Brand Street (maintaining access for cycles and public transport).

Cyclists need to be able to cross between the proposed cycle route along Bedford Road (opposite) and Oughten Head Way (behind) or to continue up Bedford Road to the left. People should not have to stop and give way more than ONCE to cross … [more]

Baldock High Street during morning peak on a weekday BEFORE the bypass was built. Doesn't look very busy does it ? Doesn't look much different to today really ! Was that £33 million, plus another £2.4 million for resurfacing the "car … [more]

The Twitchell links through the recreation ground to the Tene path, forming a parallel route to the High Street.

The Tene NHDC route 6

Simpson Drive is suitable for cycling without dedicated facilities.

Pembroke Road is suitable for cycling without any dedicated facilities. HNDC route 6

5 lanes merge to 2. If you only need 2 lanes here, then why do we need 5 lanes 200m further on ? There are much better uses for the road space.

Narrow and confined ? What rubbish. Jubilee Rd has ample width in which to be creative.
