161164Photo #161164Cyclists using both sides of Velder Avenue as it leads to the permissible cycle path on the Eastern Road. A proper cycle path needs to be installed, that is separate from pedestrians and the pavement. Cyclists and pedestrians don't mix well, and especially on a street that has houses that open straight onto the pavement.vMaybe a slower speed limit on the road would help.Cycleway:
Problem

161163Photo #161163From the Briny there are parked cars facing in all along this road right up as far as the fair almost, as a cyclist I always feel very vulnerable cycling along this part of the seafront as a car could back out without seeing cyclists, I think an accident waiting to happen, as a minority of drivers don't give a damn about cyclists we need to separate from these parked cars so you can enjoy a ride all along the seafront from the fair all along to the Eastney baths.Cycleway:
Problem

161134Photo #161134The traffic lights here are terrible for cyclists. Because the southbound traffic only has red lights for buses turning out of Tangier Road or pedestrians motorists travelling south never expect this light to be red. I used the cycle crossing here with my children and a car came towards us and did not stop at the red light. he skidded to a stop a few metres from us. The traffic needs to be slowed in the run up to this junction.Cycleway:

160940Photo #160940Please make a cycleway/pavement on BOTH sides of the Eastern Road all the way up to the bridge. There are parts on the west side already, they need to be joined up and improved. I am convinced this would split the walkers, cyclists and runners between the two sides and alevieate congestion. Shared paths can work if not too congested. ThanksCycleway:

160932Photo #160932Far too narrow path for cyclists & pedestrians.
Plus awful surface, need to make same surface as first part of cycle way, just past new housing estate. Obviously needs widening, perhaps taking away bushes & making path further away from the road.
Cycleway:
Problem

160930Photo #160930The cycle way does not need to be next to the road. The route could hug the shore line and be separate from the Eastern Rd. It will cut deaths to cyclists to zero and encourage others to cycle into and around Southsea and Portsmouth.Cycleway:

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:
