shared use bus shelter

poorly design merge onto a half width cycle lane Cyclists have to look over their shoulder while negotiating ladder paving then jink tightly right then left.

So little space here. Should be made 1 way with contra cycle lanes

Needs segregation for cycles

UPDATE SEPT 2020 IT'S NOW CLEAR https://twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1304465736455331840 Stretford near Manchester . The cycle lane is completely blocked by low branches that need cutting back. Reported again to Trafford Request ID:179 ... [more]

Barriers hinder access to Trans Pennine Trail, which is a direct route from my home to the recycling centre. Widen the opening by a few inches so bikes can get through.

Segregate existing cycleway here

Separate existing cycleway from road

Pop up Cycle lane used by lorry for parking. See also https://twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1273530830535737345 after complaints from motorists they could not get out of the way of emergency vehicles A MYTH ! Pop up lanes use by pickup ... [more]

The pop up lane disappears completely passing the North bound lay by whereas on the South bound the pop up lane is continued. No idea why the discrepancy. The lay by on the N side is not even used !

Road is too narrow for bikes, buses and cars. I have been run off the road by bus drivers twice here, and cars are often sitting in a jam with no room for bikes to get round safely. Make a clear cycle path and allow single lane car traffic ... [more]

Popup lane going towards Chorlton is great but one is also needed in other direction towards Stretford

Cycle path needed on path adjacent to road as busy narrow road but used by cyclists.

Either remove the large cones creating this cycle lane or use smaller ones. It is impossible to avoid the deep potholes on this section

Appalling Road surface. Re surface the road or insert a pop-up lane

Due to overgrowth/debris on old road pedestrians and cyclists have to pass very close. Would be great if road was cleared as this is a great link to keep away from 2 busy roundabouts

Only cycle route available but narrow lane with no pavement so dangerous for both walkers & cyclists - little room for infrastructure but reduce speed limit to 30mph (has houses on it)

Brooks Lane residents have blocked this path with a metal fence & refuse to remove though it has been used as a bridleway for a long time - needs reopening

Parked cars either side of Ashley Road reducing road width with two way traffic struggling to get through

Segregated cycleway is great but requires Give Way signs for cyclists at slip road exits as vehicles have to cross the cycleway to exit the carriageway

There is plenty of space and great need for this road to have a cycling lane on both sides of the road.

Make this the alternative route from City to Media City/Trafford Park - link via Bridgewater Canal at Pomona or apartments further up - both routes closed

A key cycle route to and from city centre to MUFC, Wharfside and Media city. Lots of speeding cards breaking the 40 MPH limit and close passing. Could also benefit with pavement for matchgoing pedestrians.

To continue riding on the A56 covid-19 pop-up cycleway from here you need to head right (where it is blocked by the two blue arrows) across the path of motor traffic heading straight on up Barton Road. An accident waiting to happen.

Covid-19 pop-up cycle lane on the A56 through Trafford. Busy high-speed slip road for the M60 motorway crosses the cycle lane. To motorists this just appears to be coned off road works. For a video showing how dangerous this is see: #http ... [more]

Sign saying nothing at all blocks the half-width cycle lane on the A56 in Trafford.

Cycle area needs to be improved along Flixton Road

Dedicated cycleway. busy road. fast traffic

Add cycle way from A56 to Oldfield Brow Bridge water canal

Urmston Manchester M41 .The end of the cycleway is abrupt throwing cyclists into path of following vehicles and cyclists who stay on road. An extended kerb would protect and/or a soft bollard or wand to warn would help.

Urmston Manchester M41 . Drivers just don't think and drive on the cycleway to park. Bollards required to restrict access.

Urmston Manchester M41 . Drivers just don't think and drive on the cycleway to park. Bollards required to restrict access.

Urmston/Strstford a cycle route is compromised because of debris including broken glass. If the cycle surface were raised to same level as pavement this may maintenance ad help to disperse debris. At present all debris ends in the cycle lan ... [more]

There's a cyclists dismount sign here despite 2 city councils and 1 metro borough adopting a policy that all new bridges should allow cycling without dismounting !! Adopted March 2008 Salford CC Manchester CC Treafford MBC https:// ... [more]

This is where the surfaced section ends. You can turn and go beside the wood or through the wood onto the transPennine trail.

These staggered bollards are a much better solution than the gate that previously occupied this position, but the gravel surface combined with the steep slope makes passing through them a dangerous prospect. The new gravel surface should b ... [more]

This useful cycleway is unfortunately badly overgrown.

Timperley nr Manchester . A cycle lane and a segregated cycle lane are discontinued just when it's needed the most . At the junction the rider is expected to rejoin the road largely unseen and in danger of being left hooked or head on colli ... [more]

Altrincham nr Manchester a bridge requires widening to accommodate cyclists and walkers

Bizarre juxtaposition a national speed limit (60mph) and a cycle route the trans pennine trail NCN62 no less ! And when you pan left you see yet another http://goo.gl/maps/VozJ8 a cycle route ahead sign on the same post as a national speed ... [more]

Redesigning this junction to prioritise walking and cycling would help create a quiet alternative to the A56 Manchester Road.

Greater Manchester Sale Cranleigh Drive one way street New homes (Trident Apartments) are built here with ample parking at the rear of the properties and yet this cycle lane is regularly obstructed by parked cars. Questions for Planning De ... [more]

Broadheath Trafford George Richards Way outside Asda. The new road layout has not replaced the cycle icons to denote segregated/shared footpath Worse the bus shelter is placed in the cycle lane ! Would help to have a couple of dropped kerbs ... [more]

Trafford Park Barton Dock Road. The entire length of the cycleway/footway is blighted running East to West with creeping and overhanging vegetation + rubbish. See also #83729

Broadheath Altrincham Trafford in Greater Manchester segregated cycle lane is impossible to cycle on due to creeping and overhanging vegetation. Dangerous for both people on bikes and pedestrians. This is a route to the new Asda who (when s ... [more]

UPDATE Barton dock Rd nr @TraffordCouncil Parkway path completely blocked https://twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/765207596508774400 This is the best segregated cycle lane that Trafford can offer. Photo of the day 22 March https://twitte ... [more]

Sir Alex Ferguson Way (unless you are on foot or bike, more like Out Of Your Way) http://t.co/muRESzIBQj

Manchester Stretford Cornbrook Reasonably surfaced and wide path from Pamona to Trafford Road Bridge. Minor tidying up required and some gardening.

Manchester Stretford Cornbrook poorly surfaced and narrow path from Cornbrook to Trafford Road Bridge

Manchester Stretford Cornbrook poorly surfaced and narrow path

Route under Trafford Road Bridge could do with tidying up

The new surface ends here ( see also #50231 )- hopefully soon we will have new surface here very soon. Full extent of new section runs between Barton Aqueduct and Park Road/Mosley Road Bridge Stretford (approx 3 km). For extent of new path ... [more]

Shared use cycle path box ticking exercise. Although this reported used by cyclists rather than a Sustrans route which includes a 60 mph narrow lane so worth mainaining to same standard as the road.! Lacks access to the Altrincham Business ... [more]

Access route to the Trans Pennine Trail this is less than a mile fom the Urmston Rail Station and could be a fine commuter route but for muddy sections and acouple of remaining barriers

UPDATE THE HORSE STILES WILL NOT BE PUT BACK . However there is a conflict between horse riders and other path users as both a likely to use the larger gap . Far better to make both gaps the same width on both sides of the river , this will ... [more]

Trans Penine Trail NCN62 Ashton on Mersey Traford Path here just needs a clean all the way along up to the bridge over the River Mersey
