168256Photo #168256Main Entrance to John Leigh Park. At last the access has been improved. Previous access was a locked gate requiring stepping up the kerb across the pavement and through 1 of 2 pedestrian access'. The one on the left required stepping over muddy grass. In time some signage and enforcement may be required to discourage parking and blocking this entrance.Cycleway:

168255Photo #168255Road resurfaced here end of April 2021 to a really high standard. The path is just soil ! There is NO path on the other side .
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

163677Photo #163677Trafford Park near Media City. The vegetation obstructing the walkway has started to be cleared. This is the best bit but still there is soil and debris that has not been cleared near the back of pavement to beyond the lamppost line. plants will very quickly take route and obstruct again. In the distance the vegetation has not been cleared forcing pedestrians to use the cycle section of the segregated route.Cycleway:

151213Photo #151213Dog excrement has been bagged and hung up on a sign post at head level on the approach to the footbridge on the North side of the River Mersey. The excrement will be festering inside the bag waiting for someone to accidentally break the bag to release the obnoxious contents . The contents potential for harm will have multiplied many fold during it's enclosure . The dog walker would have been better using the stick an flick method allowing the offensive material to decompose naturally away from the path. Or even just leaving the mess on the path would have been a lot safer than leaving this unexploded turd bomb. Reported to Trafford Request ID:1826208

twitter.com/BeeUrmston/status/1281513195954483201
The proposals to replace this barrier are not inclusive and are inadequate for when the path becomes more popular such as at weekends and school holidays.
The spacing of bollards must meet the standard recommended in local transport note

From LTN 2/08 [pdf] www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/329150/ltn-2-08_Cycle_infrastructure_design.pdf
8.14.4 Bollards are the preferred method of access control for larger vehicles, spaced a minimum of 1.2 metres apart, preferably 1.5 metres. For an additional deterrent effect, they can be installed as two staggered rows with a minimum 1.2 metres between rows (see Figures 8.5 and 8.6). Bollards should ideally be placed at least 5 metres from any bend or junction, so that riders can approach them straight on. Bollards can be hazardous on unlit routes and at sites where forward visibility is restricted by the layout or by other users.
