Photo listing (problem)

Cars park immediately next to the end of the cycle lane, blocking the existing lane. Extending the lane would clearly indicate how much room is needed to get a bike past.

Narrow road that is used by people cycling has become used a vehicular short cut to new Walton Bridge. Keep through motor traffic on A308.

Footpath outside the pub entrance and corner is too narrow to use safely even for one person alone, impossible for pushchair or wheelchair

Public footpath no. 25 or 26 to Shortwood common. Vegetation needs cutting back that has overgrown the path in places

Now that a crash barrier has been built in the middle of the road, cars are speeding even more than usual. A dedicated cycle lane is needed as the pavement is full of tree roots and far too narrow.

A cycleway would be a huge benefi. The road is used by lots of large lorries and is very narrow in places leaving cyclists quite exposed.

A very narrow windey road in places that a business park is situated down and accordingly a lot of large lorries use this road

Very hard to cross road - no signals for pedestrians on some arms and fast cars/ lots of traffic lanes. Make this junction accessible for pedestrians.

Nasty pinch point. Cyclists expected to use narrow pavement and give way to side road, or take the lane and risk drivers trying to squeeze past or angrily revving their engines behind you.

The road is very wide and there is plenty of space for a segregated lane. If done in conjunction with other suggestions on Fordbridge Road this would create a continuous route between Ashford and Staines.

Narrow lane exists but in very poor condition and paint worn away.

Make cycleway fully protected all the way to Walton Bridge.

Create an official cycle cut through here to avoid having to go up to the roundabout and back.

Pavements are narrow here and always parked on. Road speed is fast, pavement needs to be restored to be for people not drivers.

Wide lanes. Could easily add a protected cycleway and slow the speed limit to 30.

Barriers need to be removed on the pavement outside school as not enough space to socially distance.

Pavement parking is a real issue here. Pavement is not wide enough to socially distance.

These roads are a rat run and need to be filtered to allow space for distancing.

Remove one lane of traffic in each direction and create a full width on road cycleway. Can be done with cones and wands to start with.

Cycle access on the roundabout is poor. Need to lengthen a couple of light phases so cyclists can get through them in time and change lane markings to ensure drivers do not cut into cyclists.

Fast road with wide lanes. Wand protected cycleway could easily be added in both directions along this road.

This is a long road with room to install a cycle lane from the sides of the road.

Pavement on rail bridge ramps too narrow (OK atop bridge). Cycle lanes designated and technically OK, but often enough cars overtaking in no visibility of oncoming traffic.

Traffic squeezing through, multiple lanes

Pavement isn’t wide enough! For walkers or cyclists

This part of Walton Lane should be closed to all motorised traffic. To reduce the rat run through Portmore Park

Used regularly by school children between two Riverbridge bases and Our Lady of the Rosary as well as commuters using the station so becomes very busy.

Very small pavement, busy area, lots of cyclists so can’t walk into the road to maintain social distance

Painted cycle lanes need protection. Vegetation on the verge needs to be cut back as is encroaching into the cycle lane.

Very narrow street and pavements would mean that should traffic return, social distancing would be impossible

Needs wider protected cycleway

Pavement parking an issue

Fast moving traffic on a wide road. Needs protected cycle lane in both directions.

A cyclist has already been killed on here this year so a protected cycleway needs to be added and speed limit enforced.

The barriers at these lights need removing to make space for people walking. Control driver speeds at the junction rather than allowing them to speed but keeping walkers penned in.

Protected cycle lane and Cycle priority lights should be added here to join the lane over the junction. The pavement and crossing are too narrow to socially distance from cyclists too.

This road should be made access only, there is a school on it and it is treated as a rat run. People will need to queue into the road when schools restart.

Protected cycleway should be created down this road as its heavily used but drivers go too fast. Additionally pavement parking should be restricted to ensure space for social distancing while walking.

Cycleway should be extended from School Road (protected not just paint) one lane in each direction can be closed to accommodate, which also will lower speeds to nearer the speed limit and reduce noise for residents.

Current paint cycleway should be made protected and parking on the pavement should be heavily restricted (can be done by using wands to create the cycleway). Additionally the speed limit should be lowered as this street has a school on it.

Road should be made access only as it is used as a rat run and pedestrians and cyclists are heavy users. Would encourage more space Additionally, pavement parking on the road should be banned here as its leaving not enough space and forc ... [more]

One lane should be turned into a cycleway in each direction once current works are finished as the current shared use path is too narrow to walk on socially distanced.

One lane should be turned into a cycleway in each direction once current works are finished as the current shared use path is too narrow to walk on socially distanced.

This road should be made access only, like Fontmell Park becuase the pavements are too narrow to socially distance on while walking and it is a rat run currently.

This road should be made access only like Fontmell Park as it is used as a rat run and the pavements are too narrow to walk on and socially distance

The parking here should be closed and space made for socially distant walking and cycling

The parking here should be closed for cars and made into space for socially distant walking and cycling

There is space here to have a cycle lane (removing some old unused parking bays and continuing on from the previous section)

The parking here should be closed to cars to allow socially distanced walking and cycling.

The parking here should be closed and made into a cycleway (already has bus stop bypasses)

The parking in front of the shops is not needed and should be closed to cars to allow people to socially distance when walking and cycling.

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway - but in fact most will want to to cross the road to the riverside trail.

Bridleway link below the new Walton bridge - temporarily closed due to some minor dampness at the bottom.

It's absurd that this new bridleway in Walton on Thames is signed only as a horse-riding route.

Fast road with no cycle lanes or safe crossing

Shared-use footway blocked by selfish commuters to Walton

Gap of approximately one car length between two cycle lanes - why??

I have no idea which station could be to the left - Shepperton (to the right) is the end of the line.

Just because it's the end of the dedicated cycle route there's no need to dismount - just rejoin the road system.

Walton Lane - a contraflow cycle track leading to Walton Bridge, not signposted from Shepperton.

But I've just come from Staines - is the sign the wrong way around?
