136163Photo #136163There is no cycle lane on the Thornbury Ring Road (Midland Way and Moreton Way) and the speed limit is too high for a residential area, currently 40mph. There are also parking spaces on Midland Way which make it dangerous for cyclists when large lorries are stopping and starting to give way to oncoming traffic. Solution: eliminate parking on Midland Way. Use grass verge to create cycle lanesCycleway:

135005Photo #135005Two short sections of dual carriageway make it dangerous for cyclist as traffic is travelling at high speeds. Solution: make single lanes and allocate space for cyclists in both directions. This would form part of a commuter route from Thornbury to AlmondsburyCycleway:

133319Photo #133319The footpath is too narrow and there are no safe crossings. The cars come through here fairly fast and so you cannot safely walk into the road to keep to social distancing. Better crossings onto Fisher Road to access green space would be helpful!Track:

126561Photo #126561I know the temp lanes were already removed but what about a single closed lane on the westbound direction. There's a traffic light straight after so it's hard to complain about causing congestion. The lane could be two way for bikes and continue to the top of Filton AvenueCycleway:
Problem
cycleways
126462Photo #126462This is a 40mph road where cars often exceed the limit. It doesn’t feel very safe to cycle. The pavement could be made into a shared cycle path/pavement. The pavement also badly needs resurfacing!Cycleway:

124319Photo #124319Due to excessive amount of Vehicles parked here, especially during School drop off and collection times, it's often the case that parents park on the pavements, some kind of protection is needed to ensure no vehicles are left parked on the footway/pavement when parents collect their children.Track:

124143Photo #124143In places the pavement is very narrow and narrowed further by hedges over growing it. Cars and lorries pass at >30mph very close to pedestrians or cyclists using pavement for their own safety. Suggest wider pavement or dedicated cycle Lane as buffer to pedestrians.Track:

123784Photo #123784This part of the road is very narrow (one vehicle width) with high sided hedges. There is gravel heaped up in the middle of the road all the way down to at least the (High Lane) track to the farmland beside the barn (with CCTV signage). In the narrow wheel tracks either side of the gravel there are potholes and uneven surfaces. I suggest buying a strip of land from the land owners and making a dedicated off-road path (on the non-road side of the hedge) starting from around where the Stone stile is further up Swan Lane.Cycleway:
Problem

122772Photo #122772Lack of a clear cycle path is an issue here. It's a busy often congested road that does not feel safe for cyclists especially during busy commuting hours. Converting the verges into cycle paths would encourage cycling, reducing traffic.Cycleway:
Problem

122656Photo #122656There are nasty potholes at the junction and repeated patching of small sections is not helpful to cyclists. Raised patching can be more hazardous for cyclists. this whole section of road should be re- surfaced.Cycleway:

122655Photo #122655Many areas of this road are a nightmare for cyclists. There are deep pot holes and patched road repairs that all make it hazardous for cyclists. It's time the whole road is resurfaced to encourage cyclists.Cycleway:

121713Photo #121713Gloucester Road has a perceived problem with vehicles using excessive speed. Community monitoring is used here as vehicles enter the town, pass the school as they head towards the town centre. The road is wide, which may add to a drivers perception that the speed the are travelling is safe. Narrowing the road will reduce the feeling of space and lead to a reduction in speeds. Providing a cycle Lane from the staggered junction to the town centre will narrow the road, and provide a safer corridor for children from the newer houses to attend school, for residents to get to the town centre.Cycleway:
