187855Photo #187855Stretford at Trafford Town Hall. A very wide path with what looks like a parallel crossing for cycles and pedestrians but there are No Cycling signs posted on the lampposts. Does this mean no cycling on the left hand path in the picture ensuring that people on bikes use the correct path on the parallel crossing ? If so a better option would be a blue sign indicated a segregated path indicating where pedestrians and cyclists should be. This path connects Talbot Road to a large supermarket so will be well used by shoppers walking or cycling. twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1595015584772677633Cycleway:

The cycle parking comprises 1 wheel bender. @morrisons can we have a proper cycle stand(s) here. There's plenty of room and lots customers who arrive by bike. Cycle stands will also allow for parking of prams and dogs and offer increased protection to the shop and ATM. Cycle parking needs to support the frame NOT the wheel . twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1590757623632400385Cycle parking:

180257Photo #180257Junction 7 has 12 toucan crossings . 11 have green phases synchronised to the junction phases. This is the only crossing that does not have a green phase . Is this dangerous especially when sun glare/reflections are a hazard ? People will presume that when the southbound traffic joining the M60 to Stockport from the A56 is on green phase they will be allowed to cross. Vulnerable users will be waiting a long time until another active travel user arrives. Physically fit people will be frustrated to press the button and obliged to wait every time and significantly longer than the equivalent phase on the South side. Is it likely these people will risk crossing on the red phase ? Is it likely that cyclists will choose the riskier (very scary) on road route rather than the safer but inconvenient waiting at the toucan ? Is it also a possibility that active travel users will be put off completely and choose the car instead ? See also #152134Obstruction:

Grid reference: SJ769911 Woodlands Trust land between Westminster Close and Chichester Close In Sale Trafford. The circular path in this wood has been blocked by a fallen tree. The fence has also been broken here.
Also the squeeze access from Westminster Close is very tight and impossible for ladies in late pregnancy.

Broadlands is open for quiet recreation and is well-used by the public. Within the wood is a short circular path which is surfaced but may get muddy and slippery in wet conditions.

175441Photo #175441UPDATE 18/12/21 GMUTC have confirmed these are for detection cables (response from TfGM  1121-06ASVJ-04287 ). Further info is requested. UPDATE 10/11/21 reported to GMUTC (TfGM) as the ridge is to do with the Stretford - a cycle lane transforms onto a shared footway and then a Toucan crossing. Just to the right of the white dashed line is a black ridged line. It's very difficult to see that the black line is ridged and slippery. Joining the shared path requires riding across the line at a critical angle. This angle risks the front wheel being caught by the ridge and unbalancing the rider causing a fall. The rider has to consider other users of the shared path and may also be applying brakes to slow down all of which add to the risk of falling. It is not known why there should be a ridge of tarmac in a cycle lane at an alighting/access point.Road environment:

Reported to Trafford : Carrington Lane West bound and West of junction with Banky Lane. Road has been resurfaced to a high standard but the path is just soil ! Especially during a pandemic this doesn't encourage walking or cycling and the many that have started to walk or cycle will give up when they encounter this. Request ID:2086804
