A pavement and cycle path needs to be made to allow the school children to get to and from school along this road.Temporary closure:

151047Photo #151047Cyclists should not be allowed/encouraged through the pedestrian area of town as this will be detrimental to pedestrian users causing anxiety and fear to pedestrians and possible loss of custom to Congleton town centre. Town centre pedestrians cover a wide range of ages and abilities and town should be a safe place for shopping and enable social distancing. Make Mountbatten Way more cycle friendly instead of sending cyclists into the town centre. Is this the solution to Mountbatten Way being dangerous for cyclists.Track:

148935Photo #148935A523 from A555 to Poynton is a poor surface. Simply adding a cycle way to the side - which is long overdue - without resurfacing will relegate cyclists to a very poor surface. Resurface then segregate.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
148933Photo #148933Roads are too narrow in the shared space section, cars force their way past squeezing cyclists into the cobble stones in the gutter, so cyclists feel it is safer to ride on the pavement, which is wrong. The road surface is too slippery as it is made from granite stone setts which are lethal when wet, and do not meet the minimum friction requirements for road junctions that carry upwards of 10000 cars per day.Cycleway:

141820Photo #141820This road remains a 40mph speed limit road which appears to be a legacy from when it was the main arterial route in and out of Manchester. Given the adjacent bypass the speed limit is inappropriate and unnecessary. It should be reduced to 30mph to improve safety of cyclists using the road (and pushed into the 40mph traffic flow by cars parked in the unenforced cycle lane) as well as pedestrians crossing the road unsighted by the parked cars.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
141819Photo #141819The route under the railway bridge heading east has intentionally been made into a chicane to force traffic heading west to give way. Unfortunately a significant number of motorists ignore cyclists and fail to cede way to them meaning the cyclist is put at risk when travelling down hill and forced to stop. Consideration could be given to reducing the width of the footway to provide a separate cycle lane (with raised kerb or other physical separation) which gave cyclists a safe route west to east whilst leaving motorised traffic to give way between themselves as and when required.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
141818Photo #141818There is a dashed line [advisory] cycle lane which is ignored by motorists parking in it on a daily basis. This forces the large number of cyclists that use this route (being one of the main routes out into Cheshire from Manchester) out into a 40mph flow of traffic. If motorists cannot be relied upon to not park in a dashed cycle lane it should be upgraded to a solid white line lane which would mean Cheshire Police would then bother to enforce against those parking in it.Cycleway:
