Stop cars parkin g in cycle lane, lots of kids cycling here to schools, lane is unsafe

Dedicated two way cycle bridge replacing current sub-standard shared path next to fast, busy carriageway.

At 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 ... [more]

It's hard to go from Tangier Rd and turn right onto Copnor Bridge on a cycle and not enough room on pavement for cyclists and pedestrians.

Connect Hilsea Lines with Airport Service Road to open up use as quieter roads as an alternative to Eastern Road and Copnor Road.

Need a dedicated cycle way to get to Canoe Lake from the seafront

When cycling along the seafront you can stay off the road along common until you get to near pier and it’s dangerous to have to cross the road & cycle along the busy road in front of the pier.

This pavement has a no cycling sign. It is too uneven and narrow for cycles and pedestrians. I have been hit by a cycle coming out of my door. Front doors open straight onto the path.

Cycle route needs continuity from Elm Grove .. lots of children cycle to secondary school from Soutsea.. There are 2 main schools.. priory and St Eds and they need to negotiate busy traffic in the morning

Cycle path needs continuity

Install an elevated platform straddling the railway running the entire length of the city providing a traffic free cross route and a main artery that other routes can link to.

Dutch style roundabout needed here. Close the subways and use the space to properly and safely open up North/South/East/West cycling corridors.

Change priority so that pedestrians and cyclists have right of way.

Remove the stealth culleys. They can take novice riders of. Deeper gulleys with grates over would be safer.

Add clear markings to show the painted northbound cycle lane is not intended for southbound cycle traffic. Also regularly repaint the southbound markings. The use of this road by hgvs seems to scrub these markings quickly

Introduce 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 ob ... [more]

All along Albert Road and waverley Road. All access to schools should have cycling lanes.

Needs safety barriers the whole way along. It is so dangerous on the bridge where there are no barriers.

Wider cycle path

Cycle path wrong side of the road. Between parked cars and promenade - doors open and people clash with cyclists.

This 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. Make it one way and have the second lane as a protected cycle w ... [more]

Too narrow for cycles. Either add in a cycle lane or reopen the seafront to alleviate heavy traffic

Albert Rd is a wide enough thoroughfare to create a dedicated two-way cycle lane to protect and encourage cycling. This should be continuous with Elm Grove and Kings Road cycle lanes to create a proper East-West facility and to Victoria Rd ... [more]

Dedicated cycle lanes in both directions to protect and encourage cycling. This should be linked up with similar Elm Grove and Albert Road cycle lanes to create a proper East-West and North South facility.

Elm Grove and Kings Road is a wide enough thoroughfare to create cycle lanes in both directions to protect and encourage cycling. This should be linked up with similar Albert Road cycle lanes to create a proper East-West facility and to Vic ... [more]

Cars drive quickly and aggressively. They over take on bends and push you off the road.

Permanent cycle way with cars limited to one way traffic

Drop kerb so buggys, wheelchairs and bikes can get onto prom and down the disabled access onto the beach

Create a cycle lane north and south on Copnor Road to run from Copnor Bridge up to Hilsea Lido

Connect west side of M275 shared path via Tipner P&R with path at Mountbatten.

Length of Albert Road is dangerous, remove parking for cars as they open doors into cyclists or have dedicated cycle lanes

Dangerous for bikes on right hand side as there is a bollard in road and then parking on right

Allow cycles on the road against the traffic flow

Seperate cycle way fully from road

Cycle lane ends throwing cyclists into the path of buses at a busy junction suggest segregation of cycling so that a journey can be continued in a safer way to get from eastney end to near speakers corner cycling lanes as a two way cycle la ... [more]

Safe cycle lane, segregated

Segregated cycling to improve safety

Improved safety

Segregated two way cycling to improve cycling

Two way cycling needed along this road

Separate bikes and cars to make cycling safer. I cycle to work every day and would use this if installed.

Two way cycling improvements needed

Cycling from Southsea Via fawcett rd to head up Fratton road I have to contend with traffic on the roundabout or stop cross fawcett rd then goldsmith AV and Fratton road before re mounting to continue the ride this can add as much as 10 min ... [more]

Not safe for cyclists. Dedicated space for cyclists urgently needed. Such space will not only entice more people to travel along this route but will benefit the traders along it.

Pavement not wide enough for dual usage. Return to pedestrian use only

Just not wide enough for a dual use route (ie cycle and pedestrian)

There is not enough safe space for cyclists on elm Grove, too many cars park illegally and pull out quickly making it incredibly dangerous for cyclists like myself. Sometimes it's safer to go on the pavement and we shouldn't be punished bec ... [more]

Dedicated cycle routes would encourage more people to cycle. Routes would be safer and there would be less air pollution.

People cycling to the hospital cycle up this road and are constantly close passed. This is a dangerous road for cycling

Cycleway and walkway on Albert Road would make the whole area more useable and boost commerce

The corner is too narrow and tricky - a sharp left into Albert Road from Festing Road. It was easier when it was a more rounded wider curve.

Cyclists need to move onto the dual carriage way to head north. Allow cycling on the pavement to allow cyclists to avoid two busy roundabouts to head up the hill. Widen the pavement to allow this to happen

To enable easier east /west movement make this road contra flow for cyclists

You should be able to put in contra flow cycling on the road as with the neighbouring road.

Cycle lane from Southsea Beach cafe to Eastney toilets needs to be redesigned or abandoned. Currently causes endless problems with dogs, children, cyclists, inflatables and more. Many people do not realise it's two-way. Motorists are un ... [more]

Bridge is slippery when wet. Can the surface be improved please? Also has low posts creating a hazard.

Blind bends on cycle/pedestrian route - visibility needs improving.

Not safe junction - needs clearer markings to keep cyclists safe from cars turning left.

Stop cars parking in the green cycle lane along here.

This is wide pavement shared by bikes and pedestrians. Not very safe esp at corner. Could easily make better for both by making clear division for bikes and people on foot.

Make Havelock Road available to cycles in both directions.

Top bit of Lorne Road and Havelock Road could easily accommodate cycles in BOTH directions (as in other residential routes); makes a good safe route between Campbell Road and Victoria Road North

Put in a cycleway along this road. It's a very wide road with not much traffic; it could easily take a dedicated cycleway.

Extend cycleway all along Elm Grove as it is a wide road and potentially good safe-cycling route all along to Gunwharf.

This bit of cycleway simply stops when it reaches the road. Continue it into and all along Albert Road.

Remove on street parking and replace with cycle lanes on both sides.

You can’t cycle your kids to Craneswater and Southsea Infant schools because it involves going down Albert Road which is appalling for traffic. Cars speed down that road; it has no cycle path; and cars park outside the schools and Sainsbu ... [more]

Cars frequently parking in the cycle lane.

Cars frequently parking in the cycle lane.

Very difficult for cyclists/pedestrians to see the traffic lights when crossing, awkward angle, make clearer.

Make it clearer to drivers that this is a designated cycle route and cyclists have the right to travel in both directions along this one way street- it seems some drivers are unaware/can't see signs and think you're going the wrong way.

Half-way crossing island is very narrow when waiting to cross on a bike- feels like it's only just bike length, so you are poking out into the road. Widen island so cyclists can comfortably wait to cross without feeling that they're in the ... [more]

Signage at both ends of this shared path is very poor and needs reinstating

Additional path can be added along north point of Portsmouth Water reservoir to separate cyclists from fast flowing traffic and heavy goods vehicles.

Protect cyclists at this junction and bus area by continuing the cycle path past South parade pier. Currently it forces family cyclists onto a busy section of the promenade to stay safe from the traffic.

Fast flowing traffic with heavy vehicles passing at speed, recent death and near misses. Pavement overgrown and can easily be made wider. Ideally along path from Farlington Ave to Glebe Park Ave

Extend the seafront cycle path around this corner around Henderson Road to Bransbury Park so families can actually cycle to the seafront.

Regular maintenance is required to keep the vegetation cut back - thorns growing at eye level is dangerous for cyclists

Keep the road closed to cars. It is safer and more pleasant. There are various points where it is hard to cross.

Dogs should be required to be on leads here, as was previously the case before the new sea wall. Having free running dogs on a shared use path is a recipe for an accident.

Cycleways on both sides of the c/way

90 degree turn difficult on a bike, especially as it’s on a slope. Round it off to a curve instead of a sharp angle.

Segregated cycle-paths on both sides of Elm Grove: remove all parking except loading / unloading bays

Create a signposted cycle way along waltham st/ st pauls rd as an alternative to Hampshire terrace/landport terrace

Make a designated cycle path through the park to avoid bransbury road which is busy and cluttered with parked cars either side

Continue cycle path or some sort of safe way to continue the journey on this busy corner with narrow pavement

Can we have shared walkway/cycleway here, can link up with Robinson Way up to Morrisons?

Narrow road with a 20 mph speed limit (not enforced). Introduction of a cycle way and perhaps consideration for one way traffic?

Widen this bridge to allow cycling, which is currently prohibited so cyclists have to dismount.

This section is one-way but is the only connection towards the academy that avoids busy streets - cyclists (esp. pupils) should be allowed in a contraflow.

Connect Charlotte St. with Unicorn Rd. and Marketway with wider pavement or a cycle path.

Widen this bridge to allow cycling, which is currently prohibited so cyclists have to dismount.

Overgrown bramble bushes on southbound side narrow the joint cycle/pavement

Create a safe route through central southsea, connecting various schools and the train station, & widen pavement by schools. Make Fawcett Road 1 way and install a protected cycleway, with Francis Ave 1 way in the other direction.

Roundabout with 5 lanes. Really difficult for cyclists unless you’re super wuick

Improve cycle approach to lights and abrupt kerbline into advance stop lane

Improve protection for cyclists on approach to lights. And allow cyclists a head start when lights change

Please remove the totally unnecessary no cycling signs that link Teignmouth Road and Cobden Avenue. This path in the park is not busy.
