Filter Star Street and Edgware Road junction to cycles turning left only. Already big interchange with Sussex Gardens for traffic turning left, and traffic on Star Street can easily instead go down Praed Street.

Early release for cyclists going straight on would help at this junction, particularly due to the uphill start.

Traffic lights just to cross the cycleway seem excessive - give way markings would likely be sufficient.

Incredibly wide road (7 lanes at points!) with wide lanes for motor vehicles, which encourages speeding (kept in check with high police presence). Would be better with a cycle lane.

Remove junction between Poland Street and Oxford Street

Filter out motor traffic from Duke Street and James / Gilbert Street crossings of Oxford Street

Filter here to remove motor traffic, difficult to see round tight corner.

Contraflow cycleway on Blomfield Road to allow connection from Paddington to Little Venice

Modal filter to discourage through traffic down Maida Avenue

Remove painful humps on broadwalk, or at least replace with something that isn't cobbles! Currently encourages faster cycling to avoid the bumpiness.

Currently difficult to do a right turn from going eastbound on Oxford Street to southbound on Soho Street (via the cycle contraflow). Could be done by making median traffic islands slightly wider and adding road markings.

The new segregated cycle tracks on Park Lane are excellent. They should be made permanent and we should see more schemes like them in Westminster.

Hours of operation of loading bays are too wide, and block bus and cycle traffic during rush hour.

Hours of operation of loading bays are too wide, and block bus and cycle traffic during rush hour.

Cars and trucks race down Harrow Road, making it dangerous and uncomfortable to cycle on despite being a critical route into Paddington Basin and to the residential areas to the north. This is not helped by the blocking of the carriageway b ... [more]

The west end of the Strand was closed to through motor traffic in August 2021. It's STILL a building site in March 2022, with no through access for bikes at the west end.

Supposedly open to Human-powered vehicles, but it doesn't really work for cycling.

Signs say 'Human-powered vehicles only' but the barriers make it very difficult to cycle.

The Marble Arch Mound.

Maybe they'll finally be able to provide a decent amount of cycle parking for Somerset House and the Courtauld Gallery once the west end of the Strand is open only to pedestrians and cycles?

It would be more useful to actually provide cycle parking rather than just putting up railings with No Cycle Parking stickers.

Feeing for the owner of this newish looking bike locked up on the corner of Berwick and Gt Marlborough St in Soho- the roadworks further along the road mean that large vehicles turn right and perhaps don’t check what they’re running ove ... [more]

Long, straight, wide road with plenty of room and non-permitted parking for cars. Lots of families and bike users

Just three steps to get a bike down at Paddington station - but a total block for wheelchairs, of course.

Paddington station taxi rank - dropped kerb needed for bikes, wheelchairs etc

Pothole on Quietway 2

This looked like a way for cyclists to bypass the roundabout - but no.

Rephase traffic lights so that cyclists from S Carriage Drive can get through without hitting at least one red light

Traffic lights need adjusting to avoid excessive delays for cyclists when nothing is crossing

Hi. Myself and our neighbours are keen to get a cycle hoop fitted on Central Park Road East Ham. There are 3 families who are keen and would make a big difference. Thanks

Always very crowded/scarce cycle parking in this area. Desperately needs cycle hangars for secure parking.

Very poor apportionment of road space outside Harrods

Many residents in my street are in favour of cycle hangars and the number is increasing.

This shared crossing with pedestrians has too much conflict now to be shared use; the crossing should be redesigned to separate out users

Bicycles and motorbikes fished out the canal

GWR need to make their Inter City Express Trains able to easily take tandem bicycles so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with their partners. Bad for tourism!

New contraflow cycle lane, blocked by a Royal Mail van which forces cyclists out into oncoming traffic.

We would like a Bikehanger as there aren't any available spaces nearby. Due to Covid-19, the number of bikes has increased and we need a place to safely store them.

I live in a house of two flats and between us we have 5 bikes and are all looking for somewhere to store them. We are confident there is the demand for a hanger from our house alone.

Cyclists need a safe way of reaching this point to get to Marylebone Station from the east.

The traffic lights installed for the side roads onto the new two way system on this and Baker Street only turn green if a motorist has approached and waited. The sensors do not detect cyclists alone.

I live in Cambridge and we have far more bike racks than London. I could find nowhere to lock my bike here. If the government is serious about cycling they need to emulate Cambridge with lots of racks and also bike parks. We have two large ... [more]

Nowhere to park outside the sports shop, lots of bikes locked to the railings and very unhelpful sign on Piccadilly tube station railings that cycles will be removed. Far more cycle racks are needed in London if TFL wants to increase cyclin ... [more]

Allow bikes to go straight on

ASLs needed

Filter motor traffic

Mundania Court is a block of 50 flats with no possibility of on site bike storage. Currently residents leave they bikes in common areas but we have been advised that his contravenes health and safety and insurance regs and we will be requir ... [more]

There are remarkably any within 5 min walk radius Queen Anne Street / Wimpole St junction. Best placed outside cafes and busy buildings, to deter thieves.

Pedestrianise Floral Street to include it within the Covent Garden pedestrianised area

Pedestrianise Floral Street to include it within the Covent Garden pedestrianised area.

Queen's Gate is plenty wide enough for a cycle path. Please install one to enable residents and students to get around comfortably by bicycle.

Contraflow cycle lanes needed.

Proper enclosed cycleway needed along Edgware Road/Maida Vale.

Enclosed 2 way cycle lane needed.

Coming 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, eve ... [more]

The pavement along Piccadilly is very cluttered, too narrow & cars turn down sideroads without allowing pedestrians to cross - old phone boxes, businesses encroaching onto the pavement etc.

Please could I request a cycle parking hub for harvist road. As there are no cycle hubs available In the nearby area presently. [Harvist Road, Queens Park, London NW6?]

Westminster seems to deliberately not have anywhere to secure your bike on the pavement. Only interested in where to park the Bentley it seems. Also restricts electric bike hire. Clearly political.

Need protected cycleway the entire northern length of Kensington Garden to West Carriage Drive.

Protected cycle lane and lower speed limit. Too many speeding cars on this road.

Major improvements needed here in coordinating cycling policy with other EU countries like Denmark & Netherlands

Abby Road must have a cycling lane. Cars are cruising here at 40-50

Lots of large offices with people considering expensive ebikes to commute and no safe place to park

Would like a bike hangar in the residential parking near Dickens estate There is space near the school

High St. Traders encroach onto footpath using curtilage which is okay but then customers or anyone chatting, loading causes blockages inc. incidental bags, product, boxes waste etc. It needs to be self policed or warden intervention. It's u ... [more]

Red light takes ages for bicycles, prioritising cars over anyone else. It takes nearly 10 to get from this point to Westminster Bridge (300 metres) due to poorly timed red lights.

Limited protection for cyclists bypassing Paddington Station. A protected cycle lane each way is possible and can connect to quiet streets in the new Paddington Basin area

One way street restricts cycle use despite hire cycle rack. Good location for a contraflow cycle lane

Dean Street (and the whole of Soho) should be pedestrian and cycle only to allow bars to increase capacity on the street

Cars go too fast here down the hill, and then speed even more as they cross the lights at Bourne Terrace. Its like a race track!

Lisson 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 bas ... [more]

Hire bikes stick out in the middle of the cycle space. Move them onto the pavement

East-west cycle way ends abruptly, no way to get to Paddington Basin

This road is wide enough to remove the central parking section and add a two way cycle lane or a one way lane and then add one in opposite direction on Sutherland Ave

This narrow road isn't needed and can only improve the shops and restaurants on the road

Elgin Parade should be made pedestrian only with a cycle path in the middle

If you park your bike in Victoria station you may need to cut through Bulleid Way. However, there are coaches parked all along Elizabeth Bridge and they can pull out at short notice without indicating.

Ban left turns across cycle lane

Cyclist phase doesn’t always work. Please fix. Also make whole junction a yellow box
