139246Photo #139246It would be great to see more cycle options on the street or nearby, there has been such a huge surge in the use and buying of bicycles due to the virus and I think London is very much becoming more cycle based (which is great), we just need to see more cycle parking available. I know that the stands and hangars on our street and nearby are almost always in full use

138810Photo #138810Quietway 5 urgently needs improvement - Problems are Speeding / high traffic volume / inadequate signage. Most drivers seem totally unaware that they are on a Quietway. Improve by: 1. Repaint the cycle icons and 20 speed limits on the Quietway roads.
2. Signage : QUIETWAY – PRIORITY FOR CYCLISTS.
3. Segregated cycle lanes on Quietways.

138680Photo #138680Absolutely horrible stretch of road for cycling and walking (there has been a pedestrian death here). To join the cycle lane, a cyclist must cross into the outside lane after the railway bridge in the face if fast moving aggressive traffic.Cycleway:

138677Photo #138677Norwood Road is a really horrible stretch of road for cyclists, but it is really the only available route for cyclists wishing to join up with cycling lanes alongside Brockwell Park. The parking bays could be removed and repurposed for cycling.Cycleway:
Problem

138676Photo #138676This is a narrow, fast piece of road on a hill used as a rat run for traffic heading to Streatham. Very intimidating for cyclists. The speed humps on the hill also force cyclists into dangerous road positions.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
138631Photo #138631Remove the bus stop under the bridge here. It is constantly causing the road surface to collapse which is very dangerous for cyclists. There is a safer stop 200 yards further down the road. At the very least there should be painted cycle lanes in both directions through Loughborough Junction. Remove the small traffic islands at the Hinton Road/Colharbour Lane crossroad. They create pinch points where cyclists are endangered by traffic breaking the 20mph speed limit to try and 'beat the lights.' Enforcement of the speed limit on Coldharbour Lane is virtually non-existent.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
138625Photo #138625ENFORCE THE 20mph SPEED LIMIT !

Install average speed cameras and start issuing fines. This should apply to the WHOLE of Acre Lane and Coldharbour Lane. Enforcement is currently a joke.

138619Photo #138619Install advanced green signal for cyclists and remove a couple of parking spaces on the east side of this junction so that the painted cycle lane dies not veer so suddenly into the carriageway when there are impatient drivers accelerating to get past, as they currently do.Cycleway:

136293Photo #136293A modal filter by Lambeth Council - eg planters or bollards - and a change of signage on nearby Chester Rd would complete the 'Tranquil Triangle' LTN initiated by local residents. Southwark Council have already done their bit by placing a gate on Brook Drive.Temporary closure:

136054Photo #136054This quiet residential street has become a rat run since the cycleway on Blackfriars Bridge was built and cars were unable to turn onto it from The Cut. There is a park where lots of children play and it's really dangerous.
Obviously the cycle way is a great idea but it's totally inappropriate for this to be the main access point to Blackfriars Road. Lots of Uber cars also idle next to the park. I appreciate they need to rest but there should be restrictions about idling engines to reduce pollutants near the park/playground and residential housing.

118538Photo #118538Current cycle path is on pavement, extremely narrow with driveways into the private buildings cutting across it - drivers are often not even aware there's a lane there and not looking for bikes when parking as it's so poorly marked out. Sometimes delivery vans will just park right across it because they haven't noticed it. This will not hold up to demand with any increase in cycling. Please create a wider, separate segregated lane in the actual road, clearly marked so drivers can take more care.Cycleway:
Problem

118535Photo #118535Traffic lights take ages to change, and at rush hour you have a very short time to cross a very wide road, if you're less mobile you will get stuck halfway across and have to wait another 10 minutes for the lights to change...
Often a large group of pedestrians will be gathered waiting to cross which makes social distancing more difficult, especially as it's right outside the tube entrance. Please prioritise pedestrians at these lights, not traffic!
