142293Photo #142293Coming up from the cycle highway along the Thames, this road is really dangerous. The bike lane is shared with buses, but quite often the buses are blocking it as they sit waiting. There's often cars who use it as a second lane as well, even though they aren't supposed to. So cyclists have to weave between the buses and cars/trucks (very dangerous) or go up on to the sidewalk (dangerous for pedestrians) in order get from Embankment to Trafalgar Square. There should be a dedicated bike line that goes around the bus lane. It's also really dangerous to get around trafalgar square as a cyclist. I get cut off 9/10 times even if I'm clearly visible and hand-signaling.Cycleway:

134045Photo #134045Lisson Grove is a vital cycle route for cyclists coming from the North (West Hampstead, Mill Hill etc) into the West End. It is a very wide road but has no cycling provision. As there is no Cycle Superhighway in this part of the city, a basic cycle lane here from St Johns Wood Road to Marylebone Road is desperately needed. With the increase in people avoiding the tube, this can be a simple way for many people to avoid the Jubilee Line.Cycleway:

132874Photo #132874The stretch of Exeter Road parallel to the tube track (i.e. from the junction with Kilburn High Street to NW23UG) is not over populated with cars and in the 9 months I have lived there there has always been empty car parking spaces at all times of day.

Furthermore, there are a comparably large number of flats along this road, compared to the other residential streets around Mapesbury which benefit from large houses with gardens where bikes can be stored.

As such, this stretch of Exeter Road is a great candidate for bike storage, given that people in the flats do not have access to any bike storage currently, and many people are looking at investing in bikes for transport as a result of the pandemic and a move to a healthier lifestyle.

This is frankly unnecessary and there should be a segregated cycle track in the whole lenght of it, running in one of the lanes. It's an important artery leading to Oxford street.

119285Photo #119285How do you get from Hyde Park Corner to Victoria? Via Belgrave Square, obviously, since Grosvenor Place is a motorised death trap with no cycle lanes. How do you get to Belgrave Square? Errr! To avoid dying on the 6+ lane gyratory (with no cycle lane), you have to cycle down the pavement, here. It's already too narrow even for only pedestrians.

116880Photo #116880As on other bridges, cyclists and pedestrians have been punished for drivers' actions as the extremely dangerous motorway crash barriers have been placed in the cycle lane. Instead, they should be placed in the roadway to protect both cyclists and pedestrians from drivers. Furthermore, the crash barriers make dismounting from a bike on the bridge extremely dangerous and even life-threatening as it is hard to leave the road.Cycleway:

116866Photo #116866Here northbound cycles are directed straight into two lanes of oncoming traffic, as the cycle lane abruptly ends. Frequently, tourists can be seen haplessly cycling along the pavement and then, when that runs out, cycling *into* oncoming traffic before having to cross the 4-lane dual carriageway to reach absolutely no safety on the other side, where there isn't a cycle lane, either. Criminally bad design and negligent, but no surprise from Westminster.Cycleway:
