129155Photo #129155The shared path over the bridge is mot wide enough for to pedestrians to pass in normal times & totally dangerous when bikes are added in. As it’s a key cycle route off the Island, the fact that this has never been addressed is very poor, especially when there is a wide blocked off section of road alongside it.
Remove the barrier between the pavement & Road. Convert the area of road which is currently painted over with white lines to a cycle path, especially over the Bridge. It can merge back into the off road cycle path under the bridge.

127525Photo #127525Problem: Insufficient footpath width on northbound side of Eastney Road (from Devonshire Avenue to Middlesex Road). Insufficient space for distancing, even before factoring in external queues for individual shops.
Solution: Reclaim space from northbound traffic lane. The road is wide enough along this stretch to accommodate footpath widening. Despite double-yellow lines at this point, vehicles already frequently stop/ park here for their convenience leaving a clear precedent that traffic flow can persist when the road is narrowed.

126852Photo #126852Close Eastern Ave to motor traffic entering from Eastern Road (residential access still available via Moorings Way) using planter etc (exit from Eastern Ave onto Eastern Road could still be maintained) . If you are using PCCs recommended cycle route and travelling up Eastern Ave to turn right onto Eastern Road shared path you need to position to right of lane on approach to Eastern Road and cross over to shared path on blind corner, however drivers turning left into Eastern Ave at speed overshoot centre lane markings of Eastern Ave and endanger person using bike (has happened to me personally). Similarly, when cycling south on Eastern road shared path and turning into Eastern Ave you are spat into roadway on blind corner and risk being endangered by drivers turning into Eastern Ave at speed.Temporary closure:

Problem
closure
126827Photo #126827The "cycle lane" on teh west bound lane here is a dangerous waste of paint. People using bikes approaching the pinch point created by the zebra crossing need to be encouraged to "take the lane" to avoid dangerous overtakes prior to the pinch point. The bike paint encourages people using bikes to hug the curb, encouraging drivers to pass them just prior to the pinch point, and then spits them out right at the narrowest part of the road. Notice how the cycle paint actually narrows considerably just prior to the pinch point, in fact to less the width of some handle bars, rather than maintain width and give priority over the motor traffic. The paint in front of the Festing Road junction is also regularly used by drivers as an "advanced stop line" rendering it even more useless to people using bikes. Experienced bike users who ignore the paint and take the lane for their own safety will be seen by ignorant drivers as "obstructing traffic by ignoring the cycle lanes". Once again the good work in removing the dangerous wide sweep of this junction by extending the footway is offset by perhaps good intentioned but incompetent cycling provision.Cycleway:

126356Photo #126356Many one way roads could be made two way for cyclists. These in North End where the toads keep changing one way direction are particularly suitable.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
126340Photo #126340The whole of North End high street is too narrow, and busy. It’s hard to distance whilst walking, even without people queuing outside shops.
A solution could be to make the High St 1 way traffic (Northbound) from Kingston Crescent, with southbound traffic being routed down past the Post office onto Stamshaw Road. That would create a continuous loop of traffic that doesn’t need to negotiate the whole of the ferry port roundabout. With one way traffic, the pavements could be widened, and extra space created for cyclists too /or additional bus lane for two way buses??
This might also then creat options for some of the cafes & restaurants to create Covid secure street seating areas enabling them to open up sooner (continental style).
