The location of this crossing makes a bit more sense now there's a good route straight into Eddington, but there still needs to be a crossing at the main Eddington Avenue junction.

There's no sign at the bridge, but this footpath may still be closed, in theory.

Only the narrow path to the right is open, but it should be possible to open up the old route to the left.

This bridge across the A14 has finally been cleared of useless barriers.

Only the narrow path to the left is open, but it should be possible to open up the old route to the right.

Junction of new service road and the footpath from Girton to Huntingdon Road - it's not clear what will happen to road traffic here.

Future link to Darwin Green?

The Milton High Street Horror show. Today, someone somewhere, decided to paint a new advisory cycle lane down Milton High Street. Width is under the minimum size (1.2m vs 1.5m). Will encourage traffic to close pass and shout out of their w ... [more]

Steps on a footpath

Maintenance needed, or there'll be a line of trees (mostly ash) in the middle of the guided busway

Route marker to NCN route 11 and the busway - not visible from Long Road

The route sign to the busway/NCN route 11 (see #85556) has vanished for some reason.

Traffic-light bypass - good, but it's not clear at the end whether the footway is shared-use (yes) or cyclists should rejoin the carriageway.

NCN route 11 uses this toucan crossing, although the sensors/timing favour motor traffic.

  • Icon 116037 MAY 2020 THIS IS ADDED TO INTERACTIVE MAP #SAFESTREETSTRAFFORD twitter.com/OneTrafford/status/1263485402201174016https://safestreetstrafford.commonplace.is/comments/5ecac036dff7477b0266ad51/Richmond Road could be a route to Altrincham centre avoiding the busy Road by using an Richmond Road contraflow opportunity see #83211 for cyclists. "Except Cyclists" sign required underneath. This may require a TRO (ideally on an area wide basis) which is a lot easier than you may think: www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/blog/2013/01/08/view-drawing-board-exempting-cyclists-traffic-regulation-orders
  • Icon 116016 THIS IS ADDED TO INTERACTIVE MAP #SAFESTREETSTRAFFORD twitter.com/OneTrafford/status/1263485402201174016 A route to avoid a busy road bridge is compromised by barriers see also #95761 . Remove the barriers and leave only a post or bollard to prevent motor car access. The barriers have recently been put there when a cycle route was opened up but why so complicated and the barriers have sharp rather than rounded corners.
  • Icon 116014 Timperley in Trafford off Raven Road and on to Wood Road HIS IS ADDED TO INTERACTIVE MAP #SAFESTREETSTRAFFORD https://safestreetstrafford.commonplace.is/comments/5ec6c3d6022dec5e1606edde https://twitter.com/DJerrome/status/1256952679215116288 The #safestreetstrafford map suggests that the no cycling sign is removed and a cycle route signed . To do this may need the barriers to be mostly removed leaving posts to prevent cars crossing .
  • Icon 116008 There’s lots of cyclists living along Roundwood Road but we have no access to back gardens so I think a cycle hangar would be very popular. Maybe on the corner by Roundwood Park would be a good place. Sheffield stand would be no good due to theft and vandalism but a cycle hoop bike hangar would be great.
  • Icon 116007 Reduce lanes on roundabout to encourage cycling.
  • Icon 115973 Not enough space at park entrance
  • Icon 115948 all the spaces behind the apartments for bikes are full. need more space
  • Icon 115946 I think one of the parking spaces could be converted into cycle parking.
  • Icon 115944 There is absolutely none around this postcode location, those are a few blocks here that could do with it especially those that live up above ground floor level. Tenants are not allowed to keep bikes etc on landings and communal property areas. It is a need for the tenants, somewhere safe and secure to keep bikes
  • Icon 115943 Move the on street parking and make it two way for bikes?
  • Icon 115942 Filter here could create nicer residential area and reduce pressure on narrow pavements if people need to walk in the road to distance.
  • Icon 115941 Narrow pavements, plus road narrowed by parked cars makes it hard to safely distance. Adding a temporary filter would reduce rat-running traffic making it open to access only.
