147013Photo #147013Blind corners going in/out of bridge crossing (especially to the south) - signs encouraging the use of bells to alert pedestrians and other cyclists would reduce collisions and encourage responsible space sharing.Cycleway:
Problem

147012Photo #147012Cars often try and overtake cyclists on this stretch of Gypsy Lane. It should be one-way for cars to enable safer over-taking. Popular route for cyclists to/from UEA.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
147006Photo #147006The section where the paved section joins the downhill slope leading to the underpass is uneven and gets very slippy in the winter. Improving the join between the paved area would be good, especially as it is the main traffic free cycling route into the city from the West.Cycleway:
Problem

147002Photo #147002This junction always feel unsafe on my daily cycling commute travelling from the East. Turning right and then merging left as a cyclist on Clarence road has often resulted in near misses.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
141864Photo #141864Crossing point for pedestrians is unsafe / too steep for disabled users and not controlled. The nearest safe place to cross the road is at the top of the hill which isn’t ideal. A lot of people cross here from
County hall to the train station.
Track:
Problem

141862Photo #141862This uncontrolled crossing is very unsafe at rush hour, cars leaving the roundabout are speeding up at this point and don’t stop or slow down for pedestrians. A raised table or similar could help.Track:

141624Photo #141624With the NDR there are lots of paths and cycleways to walk and use your bike. But to get there you have to walk or bike down the Plumstead Road from the Village Hall to the railway crossing about 600m but you really have to take your life in your hands to use it.Cycleway:
Problem

140785Photo #140785Provide segregated cycleway on approach to roundabout. Reduce number of road traffic lanes. Reduce speed limit over roundabout to 20mph from all directions.Cycleway:

140649Photo #140649The crossing here should be made one stage, to avoid crowding in the middle stage.Track:

139100Photo #139100Coming uphill on King Street and turning right onto Bracondale there is no cycle box at the lights and traffic is often queuing. As a cyclist then you have to move over early to the right when you are going slowly uphillCycleway:
Problem
cycleways
137884Photo #137884The centre of the city should be closed to cars in such a way that it is not possible to drive straight across the city centre; this would still allow access but reduce traffic cutting across the centre.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
137867Photo #137867Jessop Road / N Park Ave would make a better westbound route to UEA (avoiding Avenues hill); then The Avenues could have a decent cycle lane for the eastbound route. Needs a couple of crossing upgrades.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
137775Photo #137775Cycleway here would allow cyclists to go into the centre, and pick up safe routes to hospital, UEA. An alternative would be to give dedicated space on A1151 for cyclists allowing them to cut across and go down Magdalen St into town.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
136972Photo #136972The road narrows and cyclist get pushed into the gutter. Traffic is held up behind cyclists going up the hill. From the junction around to carrow road there is room for a cycle way the housing side of parking on the first half and verge/existing highway at the top of the hillCycleway:
Problem

136566Photo #136566Cars regularly go well over the speed limit (20mph) making the road feel v. dangerous for cycling. Cycle lanes would slow traffic and provide safe spaceCycleway:

136502Photo #136502Provision of cyclists going straight on needed (continuing South West bound onto A1054), stressful experience (many cars turning right onto A146) with no cycle provision help - the path ends dangerously at the petrol station.Cycleway:
Problem

136435Photo #136435I agree with adjacent pont regarding a shared use cycleway alongside Drayton Road. I had been in touch with the local councillor before coronavirus struck. He is keen on exploring the idea of a cycleway all the way along Drayton Road. I will attempt to make contact again.Cycleway:

136426Photo #136426Brigg Street/Haymarket/Gentleman's walk. Painted lines cycle lane down the middle of this whole street, from Rampant Hotse Street to Exchange Street. Its a good route through the city. Encourage pedestrian separation/one way walking.Cycleway:
Problem

136277Photo #136277There needs to be a separate cycle lane to cross at the crossing lights like the new pedestrian & cycle crossing further up St Crispins Road.Cycleway:

135692Photo #135692Please allow cyclists to cross from Queen Street into cathedral - pedestrian crossing not big enough for cycles and you don't want to join busy bus/taxi traffic.Cycleway:

135025Photo #135025Partial closure of Duke Street - reduce to single lane outbound for traffic. The road has been single lane for some years due to building works and now more building work higher up has reduced that section. So keep it single lane and better use the freed space for wider paths and two way cycling.Temporary closure:

Problem
closure
133467Photo #133467Street is narrow and clogged with street furniture, bar tables etc. yet is supposed to be a two way part of National Cycle Network. Widen for pedestrians and cyclists by removing blockages on pavements.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133465Photo #133465Shared cycle/pedestrian path going out of city, needs to be wider (or add separate on road cycle lane to keep cyclists and pedestrians separate).Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133464Photo #133464Busy road forces cyclists to use narrow pavements shared with pedestrians. Reduce width of road to cars to give proper space for cyclists and pedestrians.Cycleway:

Problem
cycleways
133105Photo #133105This shared crossing is very crowded at peak times. A proper cycle way should be put in on both roads at the junction and a separate turning made for cyclists.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133098Photo #133098With two schools very close together this road gets very busy at school run time. It should be filtered as a school street (closed to vehicles at school run time.) It is also a main route to the UEA for cyclists.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
133094Photo #133094This is a narrow street with narrow pavements, which are especially obstructed on rubbish collection days, forcing pedestrians onto the street. It is one way with a contraflow cycle lane, but it's not wide enough for a cyclist and driver to pass without the cyclist being forced into the gutter. As it is a hill, cyclists are often intimidated when going up it slowly. It is a residential area and should be filtered and made access only for drivers.Temporary closure:
Problem
closure
133006Photo #133006Impossible for cyclists to filter to the front of the queue of traffic, making it difficult and more dangerous to use the cycle path on to Magdalen Street (drivers do not check mirror before turning left). Put wide slightly and put cycle path outside Artichoke to allow cyclists to get past stationary cars at the traffic lights.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
132206Photo #132206No space for cyclists going out of the city to access homes or join cycleway further along Newmarket Rd, pavement narrow, road narrow. Result, cyclists can get squeezed out.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
129892Photo #129892If St Bennedict's Street was pedestrianised, there should be a dedicated cycleway - otherwise this would slow down a key cycle route if it was made shared useCycleway:
