172715Photo #172715Make Duisburg one way to then also make the seafront one way, that way you could actually have more parking on Duisburg if you want by being perpendicular, and you could introduce/improve wide formalised cycle lanes that are safer between the parked cars and traffic.Temporary closure:

168474Photo #168474The filter from St. Helen's Parade onto the Esplanade is wide enough for two lanes, one for left turns and one for right turns. These need to be marked. At present drivers often drive to the extreme left of the space when waiting to turn right. This endangers cyclists and drivers who believe the front car must be turning left, so themselves come right up to the line on the right side to turn right.Temporary closure:

Problem

162531Photo #162531The best solution is complete separation of cycles and walkers from all other traffic and this can only achieved by building a two cycle path as well as a footpath on the eastern side of the A2030. With crossing points on the A2030 located at the traffic lights.Track:

This can be justified as the bridge is quite steeply humped near entrances to Whitcombe Gardens, St Mary's House Estate and new entrance to the Kingston prison site and proposed new pedestrian
crossings.

Provide cycle lane on north side of St Mary’s Road railway bridge by removing unused paving on the south side of the road over the bridge, realigning the central white line and marking a cycle way on the north side of the road over the railway bridge.

162358Photo #162358Someone has suggested removing accesss for cars as they can come down the M275. This is an absolutely ridiculous idea as this is a main road through the centre of Portsmouth. To suggest traffic should use the M275 clearly shows that there is no understanding of the reasons why traffic uses this route and will only increase congestion on other roads and cause more rat-runs. Additionally there is not sufficient foot / cycle / bus traffic to warrant this change. Absurd idea!Road environment:

Problem
track
162193Photo #162193This 'cyclepath' is too narrow to be two-way dual use. The corner by the roundabout is a blind bend with a dropped kerb shortly after northbound which suggests crossing is OK there. This means it is common to cycle around this bend and find a bunch of pedestrians standing all over the path waiting to cross.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
162192Photo #162192This is NOT a cycle lane and should remain as a pedestrian footway only. It is too narrow for a shared use path and the sight-lines are terrible due to the dockyard walls. It is impossible to see cyclists until they are almost on top of you and they are often travelling at speed around here (either late for work or trying to get higher up the Strava ranking).Track:

162155Photo #162155As the 1st green on the golf course no longer follows the roadside as it did many years ago the area here could be better utilised to create wide pathway and cycle ways with separation.

162139Photo #162139Need to REMOVE the recently installed cycle traffic lights. Since these have been installed traffic flow in ALL directions has been reduced dramatically and congestion is ridiculous. In addition the 'intelligent' traffic light system isn't! Numerous times I have sat at Copnor Road (southbound) and Stubbington Avenue (northbound) when all other roads are empty for up to a minute. This junction is now a farce and vans / taxis are even going through red lights once the cycle lights are green as they are clearly fed up with waiting for so long. If it wasn't illegal I would be tempted to do the same. This needs to bo sorted as a priority and will cost nothing.Temporary closure:
