Drayton high road should have a cycleway to link Drayton with Norwich

There is no space for cyclists where the road is pinched with islands as traffic queues for the lights at Unthank Road. A cycle lane is needed on both sides of Colman Road and a cycle refuge at the front at the traffic lights.

Blind 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.

Cars 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.

The 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 r ... [more]

This 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.

With 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 i ... [more]

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

Coming 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 uphill

Jessop 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 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.

The 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/exi ... [more]

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

Provision 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.

I 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 wil ... [more]

Brigg 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.

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

Please 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.

Pedestrian/cycle crossing here from riverside cycle route onto King Street - horrible, noisy, fast and difficult to join and traffic lights too far away to be useful

Cycle path ends at traffic lights, so you have to rejoin busy road. Allow cycling on pavement all the way to the roundabout and beyond.

Needs downhill cycle route

Needs downhill cycle route

Needs downhill cycle route

Needs upgrading. New cycle track but terrible sub standard design, too narrow with gaps

Needs upgrading. Cow Drive is an busy cycle link to the hospital and science park. It is a below standard shared use path with priority to pedestrians.

Pavement too narrow. Very busy road

Street 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.

Shared cycle/pedestrian path going out of city, needs to be wider (or add separate on road cycle lane to keep cyclists and pedestrians separate).

Busy road forces cyclists to use narrow pavements shared with pedestrians. Reduce width of road to cars to give proper space for cyclists and pedestrians.

Cars park on the smooth edges of the rod which are intended for cycling. Ban parking - or resurface road to make it more usable for cyclists.

There is a huge gap from the cycle way from Horsford and Horsham St Faith to link with Norwich Please place a cycleway along the A140 from the A1270 to the City Centre.

Too narrow with parking spaces to left, so that cars end up driving head on towards cyclists using contraflow cycle lane.

The cycleway here is inadequately protected, with bollards far apart. It is also too narrow.

This 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.

Impossible 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 pa ... [more]

No 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.

If 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 use

Bluebell road shared pavement is too narrow for a rider to pass a pedestrian and leave 1.5m of space. A separate cycleway is needed.

Cycleway directly into city

Separate cycle path required

While Riverside Rd is so dangerous an alternative route through the Cathedral grounds would be very helpful. e.g. Gooseberry Gdns, Hook Walk, Horsefair Loke.

A cycleway through the old Colman's works to Bracondale roundabout would solve a lot of problems and take cycles off the pavement at King St / Bracondale.

Lovely cycle crossing lights but the route goes straight into a brick wall.

Cycling northbound on Riverside Road you are in the door zone the whole way - need to stop parking and provide a cycle lane.

Vital link from east to south, avoiding city.needs better surface and width

Most people going towards the city have to use the right hand lane because it becomes a bus lane which means the left hand lane is kind of redundant

Impossible for cyclists on this roundabout

Cars get stuck behind bikes here so much

Improved pedestrian and cycle crossing on this roundabout is required. It's difficult to navigate for pedestrians and for cyclists the roundabout puts the cyclist in a blind spot in some areas due to the contour of the roundabout over the h ... [more]

The junction here is not sufficiently marked and is dangerous for road users travelling on St Georges Street as they are not aware they need to give way to Colegate (or the other way around, who knows!)

There is no provision for cyclists in this area, the road is wide and there is lot of room for this improvement

Poor roundabout layout is an accident hotspot for all road users

Dolphin path is narrow & poorly surfaced - improvement required

Since the roundabout was widened, this point has become impossible to cross. Drivers turning left from Dereham Rd (city-bound) onto Sweet Briar Rd often do not use indicators and it feels very unsafe to cross

Lots of cyclists in this area, the shared path should be converted to a dedicated cycle and dedicated pedestrian lane, to ensure pedestrians can have a safe space to walk

This industrial park is dangerous to cycle with HGVs travelling fast and cars parked on both sides of the road making it very narrow. Double yellow lines should be considered all the way down to ensure people can travel safely to work in ... [more]

The pavement here should be widened and a cycleway or shared use path is required to allow cyclists to travel this road - there is no alternative route for cyclists and the road is very dangerous for a cyclist to ride

Narrow road due to new car parking - this area should be reduced to 20mph continuing the 20mph area on the other end of Waterworks Rd

Parking is required for cycles at the Cathedral Retail Park

There is sufficient room for a cycleway here, potentially the advisory-only kind to ensure there is still room for the delivery vehicles which service the industrial park

When using the shared use path, it is not possible to cross to the County Hall without crossing several parts of the roundabout with fast moving traffic

A shared use path or dedicated cycleway is required here

Whiffler road is the main route to Asda from the NR3 area and needs sufficient cycling provision

The bridge is a blind spot where drivers do not see cyclists on the other side, there is space for a cycleway on the full length of the road but especially needed here

Lighting is required on this shared use path because it is not usable after dark

A shared use or temporary cycle way is required on the outbound direction out of the city.

This pathway should be shared use to allow cyclists to cycle parallel to the ring road. Cycling on the ring road is v. dangerous

Cycle contraflow is needed on this road, cyclists currently either have to go an alternative route or some ride on the pavement which is dangerous

Cycling contraflow needed here, even if advisory only

Cycle path is unclear and not useful for most through traffic (although good for people going via Palace St)

Reduce speed limit due to poor visibility over the bridge - often see dangerous passes over this bridge

Cycle path on Dereham road (within outer ring) only goes one way, meaning journeys out of the city are difficult on an uphill journey. Towards the city, the cycle path becomes a Bus/Cycle lane which then gives way to a 3 lane junction to cr ... [more]

This junction is so dangerous as there are no longer any markings - I have cycled along there and had to avoid both pedestrians and vehicle drivers turning into the path. We need something to indicate a more pressing need to stop, look and ... [more]

The bridge path needs improvement. It opens up South Norfolk routes from the north and east of the city.

No cycle lane even though this is on cycle route 1. Lots of traffic so very hard to cross road from lower end of King street. Bikes get stuck breathing in fumes from traffic jams. Need a separated cycle path through from King Street linked ... [more]

Crossing is two stage which can lead to crowding in the central part. It is also dangerous as the far side bicycle light can be seen from the near side, so it is easy to assume it is safe to cross when it is not. Crossing should be single s ... [more]

Cars often park in the cycle cut through, forcing cyclists onto the pavement. Physical barriers and clear paint on the road needed to prevent this.

Two stage crossing leads to crowding on the island, should be single stage

No cycle path, cars parked both sides of the road. The cycle path further up the road isn't nearly long enough and merges cyclists with traffic on a busy junction. Currently unsuitable but could be greatly improved.

Narrow walkway

The cut through path should be shared use with cycles. It is wide enough for cycles to pass slowly. It is much safer for children to use this route than the busy side streets.

Sprowston Road needs a segregated cycle lane (ideally both directions): road too busy for safe cycling

The shared path becomes extremely narrow at this point. To distance from pedestrians cycles have to move obto the road, so have to drop off a tall kerb. A ramp would make it easier to use all thr space available.

Two-stage crossing on this radial pedalway, Norwich - it needs to be single-stage.

Unnecessary barriers at the junction of Cricket Way and the cycleway along Three Score Road. Note the bypass route on the left.

Anti cycling barriers where Cricket Way crosses Bishy Barnebee Way. A cargo bike cannot easily go through.

Worn-out contraflow cycle lane and No Cycling sign that presumably refers to the footway to the right.

It is a good concept - using a toucan crossing to link Cow Drive (leads to UEA and the hospital) to The Avenues (for the city centre) - but poor execution. Just look at all of those barriers seperating cyclists, pedestrians and road traf ... [more]

A second cycle crossing of the River Yare is desperately needed to improve connections between the new developments around Thickthorn / Round House Way with the city centre. This footbridge is ideally positioned, although it would need t ... [more]
