Thames Path cycleway crossing loses priority to the road

Segregated cycle path needed along this wide road so that cyclists don't have to use pavement. Speed limit to be restricted to 20mph.

Road narrows and cycle path disappears over bridge. Cars do close passes.

The pavement has been widened here on both sides for pedestrians making the road too narrow with a high concentration of standing buses and heavy vehicles - dangerous for cyclists, switch the use of the left path from pedestrian to cycleway ... [more]

Very unsafe junction - fast vehicles and poor road lay / crossing points

Vehicles constantly parked in the cycle lanes - no enforcement of rules. Fully segregated lane needed for bikes with more bollards

There is limited space given to cyclists and it is very dangerous as drivers do not allow space for cyclists.

Cycleway Ends at Rochester Way and cyclists either have to share the narrow pavement with pedestrians or risk the road. There should be a cycle lane on Well Hall Road.

Villas Rd has huge potential to be an excellent part of cycling route from Plumstead Common to Woolwich, avoiding the dangers of Griffin Rd and Burrage Rd. It is already closed to through traffic, but historic design focussed on walking ro ... [more]

The cycle path at this point is dangerously in the door zone of parked cars. Any motorist who opens the door without care could knock over a cyclist into the path of a moving car. The cycle lane needs moving out beyond the reach of an open ... [more]

The section of Thames Path between O2 and Greenwich Power Station needs upgrading to make it a safe mixed pedestrian and cycle amenity on the existing Thames path and Q14 routes.

Cycleway. large school here - speed and volume of traffic prevents cycling

Segregated cycleway. the current band of paint doesn't stop fast vehicles moving into the space.

To close pass. There is enough space easily for cycle lane wands.

Too narrow and cars overtake dangerously

It’s ridiculous to have a bus stand here, move the 51 into Hare St and make it easier for cycles and cars - or make it a cycle lane.

Villas road needs modal filters not what it currently has

Cycle lane too narrow due to poorly positioned upright posts,Posts also make right turns from this road into side roads dangerous due to timing the maneuver with traffic approaching from behind. Cycle lane not swept regularly.

Fast traffic. Some drivers do not give enough space to slow moving bikes. Major route for riders returning from jobs in Plumstead, Woolwich, Charlton and further west to homes in Bexley. Needs cycle lane uphill on, Wickham Lane, between C ... [more]

Cars are close passing when overtaking at speed. Needs segregated lanes. I use this route to go to work at the hospital.

There is alot of primary schools around, and since covid alot more people are wanting to cycle but bit dangerous on the roads. This will encourage more cycling and safer journeys around social distancing.

Upgrade access to bridge to enable cycling over A20 rather than having to dodge traffic to cross road.

Add a cycle lane and slow the cars down

Make this one lane and make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians.

Add a cycleway and slow down the traffic, often cars doing 50+ in a 30.

Add a cycleway and slow down the traffic, often cars doing 50+ in a 30.

Slow down the traffic, often cars doing 50+ in a 30.

Slow down the traffic, often cars doing 50+ in a 30.

Slow down the traffic and make it safer

Change the cycle path here, it is confusing and dangerous as you have to bunny hop to use it.

More wands and keep the vehicles out of the cycle path.

Make this safe for cyclists, it is a terrible junction.

Move the street lights forward to make more space for pedestrians and cyclists

Fix the cycle path / pavement

Get the cars out of the cycle path

Too much street parking

Too much street parking

A new east-west route for cycling at the north end of the park should be created. This could be open during commuter times when the park is normally quiet.

Heavily used by pedestrians and cyclists as the only safe route from central Greenwich to North Greenwich/Charlton. Tiny path boxed in by storage yards and concrete works. Could be fixed by purchasing part of the adjacent strips of land (un ... [more]

Constant parking of private cars, delivery motorbikes and loading vans in the cycle lane outside KFC.

This junction is extremely dangerous for cyclists turning right onto the A2211. A phased traffic light with a segregated cycle path would improve things. The problem is drivers take the junction at high speed, not slowing down, and the amou ... [more]

Dangerous intersection for cyclists. Improvement needed.

A cycleway needs to go through this deathtrap roundabout.

Make one of the Blackwall Tunnels bikes only during rush hours.

Charlton Way should be a cycleway. It is currently being used as a free car park.

Parking should not be reinstated in Greenwich Park and part of the space should be turned over to a cycleway.

Gates restrict access to bikes with child seats, trailers or any non-standard bikes.

Devonshire Drive between the A206 and Egerton Drive is one way, Westbound. A contraflow cycle lane would give access to the quieter backstreets for bikes, even if just from Catherine Grove to Egerton Street.

Oh dear - @Royal_Greenwich is closing a stretch of riverside cycle lane for driverless cars @GreenwichCycle http://t.co/Z8KLaqKVCR

Lots of modern infrastructure. Only the pedestrian/cycle infrastructure doubles back.

The footbridge switches from one side of the gantry to the other, like it was an afterthought!

Stop! Well, at least they've stopped directing cyclists into the lamppost!

A bit of a blind corner. Maybe it will be better once the hoardings are away.

Cyclepath blocked by construction work

Shared use pedestrian and cycle path that is badly signposted and there is no lane marked on the pavement. Note also that there are bollards at the beginning of the bridge which force walkers (and there's usually lots of them here) and bik ... [more]
