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

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!

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.

Allow bikes to go straight on

ASLs needed

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]

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

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

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

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

Priority phase for cyclists onto roundabout

Proper bicycle access to Paddington, remove the silly traffic barrier

Enable cycle access between Little Venice and Westbourne Terrace to provide a cycle friendly crossing over the Westway barrier

Enable cycle access between Little Venice and Westbourne Terrace to provide a cycle friendly crossing over the Westway barrier

Cycleway here, at the sewer works, often impeded by crowds of oblivious tourists. Some sort of a rethink needed.

Cycle counterflow here is regularly blocked (including overnight) by parking, forcing cyclists out in front of oncoming vehicles. Infrastructure and enforcement needed.

Cycle counterflow needed here. There is room for it if the pavement build-out is removed.

Needs an advanced stop line and a separate advanced green light for cyclists. It's a multi lane road on a slight incline and cars often speed to get ahead of cyclists when the lights turn green. Sorry, I originally put this on Eccleston ... [more]

Buses and lorries sit in the middle lane and then turn left because the turning is too tight. This puts cyclists sitting in the left lane at risk.

There's no way to get to the offices on North Wharf Road from the south of the basin. You end up having to cycle the wrong way down a one way street. The one way systems in this area really work against cyclists and could do with an overhau ... [more]

This is often filled with huge buses pulling in and out, taxis and cars and very difficult and dangerous for cyclists

Change one of these 3 lanes in each direction to protected cycle lane. Currently bikes must either ride in a very dangerous triple Carriageway or move on to the side road which is dark, full of bollards, parked cars, pedestrians etc.

Cycle lane on Edgware road

Currently a "Pedestrian priority" shared cycle lane with speed bumps. I suggest making separate parallel paths for pedestrians and cyclists.

Yes!

Cycle Lane in Marylebone Road/ Euston Road

TfL/Westminster had the awful decision to turn Baker Street into a two way road. 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 le ... [more]

Cycleway along the A41 (Fynchley Rd, Wellington Rd, Park Rd). It's wide enough to accomodate cycling infrastucture and it could serve as a cycle route into central London.

Why are bikes forced into a bottleneck here?

Safe protected cycle lanes on Portland Place from Regents Park to Regent Street and on to Picadilly.

Remove parking to provide a safe cycle lane on New Cavendish Street, connecting with Howland Street and Portland Place cycle lanes.

Safer Junction Scheme.

How 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 ... [more]

Parliament Square is still a nightmare for cyclists. Takes way too long to get round. It is an historic tourist attraction, but is horrible. Traffic should be banned

This road is easily wide enough for cycle lanes in both directions while still maintaining lanes in both directions for motor traffic.

Bridge is very busy - heavy traffic. Needs dedicated cycleway or no cars allowed, as per Waterloo Bridge

please add cycleways along Victoria Street

No cycle paths

Bikes are always queueing here, need more space

There is plenty of room here for cycling facilities as there are two lanes of parked cars, which could easily be removed.

As 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 cycli ... [more]

Here 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 tr ... [more]

CS5 crossing CS8, with no signs or provision for turning from one to the other.

CS5 crossing CS8, with no signs or provision for turning from one to the other.

Poor link to CS8 - dropped kerbs needed.

Poor link to CS8 - dropped kerbs needed.

Loose surfaces and more conflict. Not great changes.

Exactly where you should not put a cycle lane - in the footing zone.

Hyde Park Broad Walk works - introduction of poor surface to slow down cycles - how about a proper cycle track?

Poor quality shared-use

Poor quality shared-use

This is @CityWestminster main bike route on to Waterloo Bridge. Totally inadequate shared pavement space http://t.co/ZU8Ym6skNo

Pretty awkward right turn on the London Cycle Network

Cycle route through the royal parks

Paddington Basin - if the surface wasn't loose chippings it'd be useful for cyclists.

Unnecessary off-road cycle path, Hyde Park

It's unclear whether cycling is actually allowed on this new link to the new toucan crossing over West Carriage Drive to Queensgate.

It's very petty-minded to ban cycling on this short stretch of road to the Serpentine Gallery, as it's used by delivery vehicles and cyclists want to lock their bikes to the railings by the entrance.

Rather abrupt unsigned end to cycle track along West Carriage Drive (not easy to find heading north in the dark).

The cycle route up the east side of Hyde Park ends at a barrier, a zebra crossing over Bayswater Road and a No-entry. There's talk of a proper crossing and a cycle contraflow here. Fortunately there's a more useful crossing just west at Alb ... [more]

The cycle route up the east side of Hyde Park ends at a barrier and a zebra crossing over Bayswater Road. Fortunately there's a more useful crossing just west at Albion Street.
