150987Photo #150987With the seafront closed, the volume of traffic here makes crossing the road on foot or by bike a dangerous nightmare. At the very least it needs a light-controlled crossing outside Dolphin Court, or better still a zebra crossing and a speed reduction.Temporary closure:

150986Photo #150986At the point where the gates can be closed , going West, the cycle way narrows to about 500mm - 600mm. This is not enough to fit through my cargo bike with children it. It should be at least a metre wide. Right now, I have to plan to cross out of the cycle lane into the traffic lane at this point. Ideally extending the cycle way past South Parade Pier would be the right thing to do.Cycleway:

147779Photo #147779Recognize the desire line of cyclists and pedestrians and tarmac this. The current double switchback puts everyone in conflict. The current design is idiotic and completely fails to consider the turning circle of bikes, resulting in a muddy desire line which makes the tarmac slippery (i.e. dangerous).Track:

Problem

147772Photo #147772Introduce a bylaw that makes it an offence to dangerously block a cycleway with road signs. Often signs here are massive and not lit when traveling southbound by bike, so at night you're blinded by car lights and then hit the back of an obstacle that has been placed for 'safety' purposes.Cycleway:

147624Photo #147624This road is very busy and fast especially with the diversion around the closed seafront . I like the closed seafront . I think the next step is to reduce traffic on this road.

Often the driver's are very aggressive and I've witnessed verbal abuse and threatening behaviour. Parked cars are often damaged.

Sometimes it's safer to go on the pavement and we shouldn't be punished because of dangerous drivers. The road is wide enough for two cycle lanes in both directions, and heavier policing on illegal parking is needed.Cycleway:
