This will be a decent link when proper dropped kerbs are installed.

The usual semi-finished look of a new housing development, with piles of asphalt instead of proper dropped kerbs.

The elevated cycleway approaching the Millennium Bridge in Lancaster.

Cyclists on the riverside path rejoin the road here [now extended west]; on the right are steps to the pedestrian bridge (alongside the West Coast Main Line railway) across the Lune.

No Cycling on this staircase! The stairs lead to a footbridge attached to the side of the railway bridge high above the river. Probably as quick to cycle to the Millennium Bridge now than to lug a bike up and down these stairs.

No Cycling 10am to 5pm 7 days a week? and cycle parking

  • Icon 149294 Make single lane both ways and add cycle track both sides Wellington Rd to connect cycle route college to town centre
  • Icon 149293 Dedicated right turn cycle lane needed to negotiate traffic lights from Castle Road to Wellington Rd
  • Icon 149292 Proper wide Toucan crissing needed here in line with parkngates and High Streer
  • Icon 149291 This road is too far for pedestrians crossing in to the cemetery and for cars pulling out of the cemetery
  • Icon 149290 Footbridge over the bypass would make crossing much safer
  • Icon 149289 Speed camera required here, cars driving far too fast accelerating away from roundabout
  • Icon 149288 Too dangerous to cycle on the bypass - a dedicated cycle path would be great.
  • Icon 149287 Cyclists travelling from Ebley road straight on to the A419 are now required to cross 3 separate traffic streams, ridiculous! This roundabout is totally negative towards cyclng, once more traffic planners pander to the motorist and drive cyclists off the road. Take a look at the city of Cambridge 'Dutch roundabout' approach - giving vulnerable road users (pedestrians and cyclists) total priority.
  • Icon 149286 There is no public transport into Louth from the south. WHilst re-opening the railway would be a good solution, a cheaper alternative would be to open the old railway line as a cycleway connecting Louth to Alford and further south.
  • Icon 149285 The A16 is too dangerous for cycling.
  • Icon 149284 There is no public transport whatsoever south of Louth. The A16 is far too dangerous for cyclists. All commuting to Louth from the south has to be by car.
  • Icon 149283 This applies to all the narrow roads in the wolds. So many footpaths have been closed that walkers and cyclists have to share narrow roads. Cyclists cannot easily be heard and this leads to accidents. The problem will be compounded if ELDC continues its policy of encouraging walking/cycling tourists without upgrading the infrastructure. The problem will be far worse when electric cars become popular as it will not be possible for walkers walking on the roads to hear them. The best solution to this problem would be to re-open the footpaths and bridleways that have been closed.
