New crossings of the motorway slip roads. This is better than the previous uncontrolled crossings, but unfortunately the wait times are very long and do not appear to consider if the slip road has any cars on it.

New crossing of the A556. While this certainly improves safety on the previous method of crossing (which was legally dodgy and not safe), the long wait times do not help.

This nuisance bridge is difficult for almost all users to cross. Difficult with a bicycle. Impossible with a tricycle or wheelchair. It's inaccessible, with steps on either side. People cannot pass by eachother, leading to long queues … [more]

A very large and spacious children's playground does not allow cycles (ridden or walked). No account of cycles that are used as a mobility aid such as this one which could be classified as a pram. Incidentally there were plenty of diesel … [more]

This apparently hand-made kerb will seriously hurt or kill somebody trying to cross it, especially while turning. There are dropped kerbs nearby but people unfamiliar with the area will expect to turn normally into the road.

Continuous footway = good. Ridiculous kerb transition at the junction = dangerous. This will seriously hurt somebody turning across it.

Two-lane crossing at a roundabout exit for the new link road. This is not good enough - it should be a single lane, and the speeds should be significantly lower. This is dangerous.

The road outside of the layby here should be designated as no parking. Parked cars here are very dangerous for pedestrians and is too narrow! This road should really be a Quiet Lane.

Really? Pavements are for pedestrians,wheelchairs,buggies, park with consideration to others. #HereForYou #RoadSafety From an: Official @cheshirepolice twitter account. Noticed from this tweet which points out the … [more]

Have the hedges cut back to help the visually impaired it will also help in the current situation

Over lockdown the landowner put up fences to narrow the footpath and block gaps into Prince's Wood. This is an ex-colliery railway and should be a lot wider than the space left by the fences - just like the rest of the incline. It also … [more]

One of the worst surfaced roads in Cheshire. Little better than a track for cycling

Dreadful surface of the old airfield perimeter, dangerous for cyclists

Converting this footpath into a Cycleway would massively improve active travel into Handforth Dean

Overgrown hedges..... home owners need to cut them back as overhang the pavement too much, causing restrictions for walkers.

The council removed road lighting on the section between Cherry Lane and Greengate Road as an energy saving measure. New pedestrian lighting is necessary to maintain safety on the pedestrian route to the post-office, school and other … [more]

A pedestrian crossing point is required to cross the A50 with a build-out to improve pedestrian visibility when crossing this busy main road. This measure would assist safety for users walking between Church Lawton and Lawton Heath.

A crossing point with central pedestrian refuge on the town side of Edwards Way is necessary as this is the main walking route to the town centre, schools and other amenities.

The footway on Lawton Road is less than 1m wide and on one side of the road only. Road space should be reallocated to pedestrians.

There is no footway along Sandbach Road in the break between houses discouraging pedestrians from walking along a high speed section of road with no street lighting.

Absence of a continuous footway on Sandbach Road between Cherry Lane and Sandbach Road Lawton Heath. The road speed is also too high at 40mph around a blind corner.

Many people use the Salt Line for exercise. To reach it there is only a narrow pavement on one side of the road and no pavement at all on the other side of the road. To reach the Salt Line one has to cross the road at a dangerous point.

Narrow footpath leading to the local shops and school, needs widening

Need a pavement as people walk on the narrow 60 mph road. Very dangerous.

Zebra crossing with lollipop person required. The school children need help to cross the busy road.

Zebra crossing and lolly pop person required to allow the school children to cross the busy road safely. We also need a cycle path to the high school and Pikemere school that extends to the surrounding areas of Alsager and Church Lawton to … [more]

Parents and toddlers on starter bikes, elderly walkers, school children and family walkers all need to cross here to get on/ off the salt line. Visibility is poor. The cars need to be slowed down to 20mph and a zebra crossing made. A … [more]

There is no pavement or cycle path which makes it dangerous for those wishing to walk or cycle. The cars here drive fast. There is lots of rough ground at the side of the road for easy conversion.

Cyclists 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 … [more]

Down Radnor Bank there are high walls on both sides making this a very narrow stretch of road and there are many accidents involving cyclists and a vehicle. Overtaking by any vehicle of cyclists for this short stretch should be banned.

It would be very useful if cycling was allowed on this this wide footpath. Gives quieter access to Victoria Park .

There is a traffic island here to assist with crossing this road which is very busy around school drop off /pick-up times. The pavement though is too narrow here for the number of people crossing and especially difficult to cross here If … [more]

Cycling and walking access to the park is poor. Footways are too narrow and you have to go on carriageway to enter park. Could widen out footway into park to create safe access.

Crossing from footway into park is dangerous. On a blind bend with no crossing facility. Could provide footway on other side with crossing further down South Park Drive.

A523 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.

Roads 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 … [more]

Dangerous crossing. Pavement required over hump back bridge to make it safe for pedestrians to access cycling and walking routes.

Add a dropped kerb here for wheelchair access and widen gate for access onto the Middlewood Way - put a ramp access from the Nelsons Pit car park down to the Middlewood Way instead of the stepped access also drop the kerbs for wheelchair … [more]

Cycle way all along Chester Road is poor - the cycle lane has a very poor surface and is only partially along this busy road - a cycle lane is needed the whole length of Chester Road - needs to be well surfaced and much better marked

A crossing. The current crossings east of the railway bridge do not function at busy times. You become easily stranded on an island and the islands are too small for double buggies. Ideally a toucan crossing.

Safe pedestrian route required over railway bridge to aid car free walks from town into countryside.

By making this a permissive bridleway a circular route from Disley would be possible through Lyme Park.

Cars and especially lorries/buses cross into inside cycle lane on blind turn to take “racing line”. Segregate with armadillos

20mph zone between the old people home and the sports club used by so many children.

Very heavy traffic. Completely unsuitable for such volume of cars and lorries, let alone cycling or walking. A dedicated bypass with cycleway is needed urgently. Then semi pedestrianise the village.

Pavement is in very dangerous state, pedestrians need to walk in road to avoid risk of injury.

Overgrown verge and hedge make this very dangerous for more than 1 person to walk.

This road is very dangerous for walkers or cyclists. It has no pavement. The workers from the skip hire company and other drivers drive a great speed with poor visibility over the hump of the canal bridge. A pavement for walkers and … [more]

Very dangerous for pedestrians walking from Scholar Green Village Hall to Church as so many weeds, undergrowth, bushes etc taking up majority of pavement all needs removing. There is actually a stone wall in places so pavement supposed to … [more]

For the same reasons as the cycleway. There needs to be a reasonable footpatch for this area. The current path is only wide enough for a single person to walk, and even then, is right next to the road so incredibly unsafe

20mph speed limit through Bollington

Block off through access for cars via Coare street. Prevents it being used as a rat run so would be safer for cycling.

Impossible to negotiate the gate onto the Middlewood Way from Princess Street with a bike. Several issues like this on the Middlewood Way.

Easier bike access to Middlewood Way. I get pulled down the steps pushing my bike and pannier. Look at ramps like they use in Denmark for cycle access

Timing on pedestrian crossing is slow. Can be stuck waiting for ages in the middle island. Lights need to change more quickly for pedestrians and cyclists

Cycle lane all the way up Beech Lane or 20mph speed limit. Cars overtake too close and it can be difficult to turn right into Coare Street

Difficult to cross from West Park to the hospital with a bike due to narrow pavements and awkward corners due to location of crossing and kerbs.

This road is easily wide enough to both extend the pavement and add a cycle path. It might encourage folk to slow down when driving through the village too.

Mere near Knutsford. There used to be a bridge here. Mainly for wildlife but also a right of way. It was damaged years ago by a lorry then demolished immediately and never replaced.

This is a fast narrow road with over 6000 cyclists per month. It is a very popular cycle route. More should be done to make this road from Lees Lane to the end of Bonis Hall Lane more cycle friendly

This is a fast narrow road with no footpath for pedestrians

This is a narrow fast road that has over 6000 (6 thousand) regular cyclists per month (Ref Strava)

This is a 30mph limited road, but many cars go too fast. Many children could use it to cycle to school if there was a segregated cycle lane

Pavement is too narrow for 2 people to pass safely. needs widening

Cars come too fast down this stretch and many park on the pavement. It's well used by cyclists and a cycle lane is needed

Buxton Old Road would become MUCH safer if it were turned into a one-way road (going up). It is too narrow for 2-way traffic in places, is national speed limit and contains blind bends/summits. Residents at the bottom can exit using … [more]

Access to Middlewood Way for bikes from Wellington Road

Remove metal barriers from this route they are unnecessary

Turn this footpath into a bridle way so cyclists can use it as a traffic free route, remove the barriers currently preventing cyclists using the path

There's a "no cycling" sign at the end of Brookhouse Close, naturally everyone ignores it, the sign should be removed.

If the hardstanding path that begins at the Macclesfield end of the Bollin Valley was extended its entire length to Prestbury it would provide a flat and traffic free connection between the two places which would also provides a connection … [more]

Bushes need cutting back allowing cyclists to cycle in cycle lane Between Dorchester Way and Dunbar Lane

This 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 … [more]

The 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 … [more]

There 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 … [more]

A cycle way joining up Prestbury Rd with Cumberland St would mean cyclists could use this as a route in and out of Macclesfield town centre. At present cyclists have to mount the pavement, and dodge pedestrians.

Barriers at end of Calveley Rd need removing, they prevent use of traffic free routes by cyclists, mobility scooters, prams, wheelchairs

There is a "No Cycling" sign on Chestergate. Spot it near Mens Den barbers. Naturally nobody takes any notice of it - it should have been removed years ago, cyclists can share Chestergate perfectly safely.

Barriers need to be removed, they discriminate against cyclists, pram users, mobility scooters and wheelchair users.

Park Lane is wide enough for a chevroned cycle way down each side. Similar to these images. Doing so would highlight to cars it is a shared space. Reducing the width with highly visible paint will also slow down the traffic. … [more]

Road surface is appalling, particularly at junction of Gunco Lane and Byron's Lane

Barriers need to be removed to make cycling easier.

Cycleway to connect Haslington and Crewe

We need a segregated cycle way all along the A6 from Whaley or perhaps Buxton all the way to Manchester City Centre. MANY, MANY more would be interested in cycling to work along this route if the cycle lane was properly segregated, both … [more]

Bellmouth of the junction should be reduced to allow easier crossing on foot.

The footways are too narrow in the retail area. footways on Chapel Lane could be widened to accommodate more walking.

Allow cycles to travel both ways and further restrict motor vehicles coming south

No cycle facilities between Sandbach and Middlewich.

I agree with this sign - lots of motorists speed around these roads and some are impatient over this bridge.

Pavement is too narrow to pass another person safely. Also not wide enough for pushchair/wheelchair.

Barriers have been placed here to close off disabled parking as a social distancing measure. The barriers should be set back because they remove an escape route from vehicles that are forced to encroach on the cycle Lane to pass cars parked … [more]

Deter parking on the cycleway next to the parade of shops between the churchyard and the market square, as this forces cyclists into upcoming traffic.

At this point, the road narrows to 6m wide, and parked cars force upcoming one way traffic, sometimes HGV delivery lorries, into the cycle lane. Parking should be prohibited at this pinch point.

Deter parking on the cycleway next to the parade of shops between the churchyard and the market square, as this forces cyclists into upcoming traffic.

Dangerous pedestrian crossing

Allow cyclists to ride through roadworks

High speed traffic at 2 crossings at new housing development. Make crossings safer by reducing speed limit, widen island. Improve cycling facility into existing housing estate on footpath FP11

Wide road, no cycle lanes. Cycle lane required along full length of road through Wilmslow, both directions.

Vehicles speeding on blind bend. Reduced speed limit and cycleway.
