Lift is out of service most of the time and needs regular maintenance to ensure this never happens. Failing to maintain this lift is a breach of the Equality Act 2010

Get rid of these ridiculous yellow metal barriers which are dangerous and increase the risk of collision for people cycling

Something is off with the timings for the cyclepath and it takes a while to cross this roundabout using the cycle lane

No flush access to the road from this bridge crossing. Cyclists tend to use the pavement from the H Forman entrance to get level access

Street infrastructure is in the cycle lane! Lamp posts etc

Cycle lane routinely ignored by parked cars, often causing jam at lights. remove parking spaces and enforce cycle lane

Street is one way except cycles, but no markings on the road so cars frequently aggressive towards contra-flow cyclists

The camber on much of the pavement on north side Lindfield Street is in poor condition and makes it very difficult to walk safely. Makes it impossible to avoid people coming the other way as you literally end up falling off the pavement in ... [more]

Nightmare junction in rush hour. pedestrians can't cross over Thomas Road safely at junction with Upper North Street. Cars parked too close to junction in Thomas Road, pedestrians can't see properly to cross. Cars speed out of Thomas Road s ... [more]

Many schools , traffic from A12 make cycling to school difficult

This is a busy Rd. Children cannot cycle safely to school

The light phasing on the east bound CS3 needs looking at. The cycle lights are red when the toucan crossing on Mansell Street is green. There is no reason why cyclists can't continue straight across into Royal Mint Street during this phase ... [more]

The bus/cycle lane ends at Ida Street which means cyclists wishing to continue east along East India Dock Road towards Canning Town have to cross two lanes of traffic. Continue the Bus lane across the traffic lights. Move the markings fo ... [more]

CS3 just vanishes here. There is no clear indication as to which way to go. Sensible way would be a dedicated crossing on the north side of Sorrel Lane and CS3 crossing towards Bow Creek, across the foot bridge and up to slope to rejoin ... [more]

Desperate need for cycle-lanes along Tower Bridge Road to connect with Cycle Super Highway 3 that runs along Tower Hill.

Make the whole of Wapping an access only area for cars and put bus gates on the high street. Prioritise pedestrians and cyclists please!!!

Block off road. Very busy around here during school term time and there is a larger parallel road to the west.

Very busy road. Needs segregated cycle path. Cars often overtake dangerously.

Road should be closed. Used as area for parents to drop children off at school. Expand the park.

Make this road one way and close at one end. Rat run for local school and narrow.

Very dangerous narrow road, if cycling cars just plough through.

Very dangerous road, cars always parked on double yellow and overtake cyclists at four way junctions. needs segregated cycle lane here.

Duckett St very tight and many parallel roads. This should be blocked off here and push cars to the main roads as this is all residential

Very tight road as parked cars on both sides. This road has many roads parallel to it. Lets make it one way and block it off.

Hackney Road cycle tracks This suggestion is part of Hackney Cycling Campaign's 'Vision for Hackney'.

Cat and Mutton bridge bus gate This suggestion is part of Hackney Cycling Campaign's 'Vision for Hackney'.

Too many cars left turn across CS2 too quickly without looking. I've been involved in a crash here where the driver did not stop and sped off.

This is a rat run, speeding cars not stopping at Repton Street. Speed bumps needed by Junction

Potentially a very useful route for cycling, but incredibly hostile. Separated cycleway along Hackney Road followed by cycleway or filter on Bishops Way.

How is Brick Lane still open for cars? It has long been too bus with pedestrians to be open for through traffic. Add filters to allow deliveries, remove through motors, allow 2 way cycling.

No safe pedestrian crossing here

Wider pavements to help slow traffic to the speed limit. Include segregation for cyclists

Busy junction makes it unsafe to cross either as a cyclist or pedestrian

Make this a contraflow for cyclists and create a quietway through the whole of Old Ford Road across Cambridge Heath Road down Old Bethnal Green Road to Shoreditch and up Rivington street to Old Street

Traffic uses Fairfield Road as a rat run. The junction with Tredegar Road is dangerous as traffic races coming off the Blackwall Tunnel approach road, over the mini roundabout and makes it difficult to cross at the junction of Tredegar and ... [more]

Enforcement cameras to stop cyclist traffic light jumping, or having a merge left feature for cyclists

Temporary measure in place but it cuts through cycle lane - cycle markings needed on road side

Speed calming measures this Upper North Street and Bow Common Lane are meant to be a quiet route to Mile End Park

Closure to non London Transport buses. coaches heading for Blackwall Tunnel use it as a rat run to avoid congested Preston Road. Danger to cyclists on both sides of cycleway

There should be a complete junction box here. Too many times southbound on Preston Road cars continue to cross with the red light.

Better wayfinding needed here for London Cycle Network Route 16 on the Greenway and for the routes to Victoria Park and Old Ford Road from this point.

This road out to the main road and through to Stepney Way is deemed a quiet route for cycling, the surface is terrible and full of holes.

Rat run, speeding drivers, multiple accidents. Current one way system with drivers speeding over 50mph and more the wrong way through system. Needs traffic calming and measures to prevent cars speeding and driving the wrong way.

Make this temporary filter permanent

Cycle Contraflow - coming over the bridge from Crown Close towards Old Ford Rd there is no signage to show that it is a No Entry street. Either put up No Entry signs or better - make it a cycle contra-flow...

Make this side road a dedicated cycle route for access to the asda carpark and on throug mudchute farm

Reduce the speed limit, install cameras. Because of the ramp, cars can't see over the top of the bridge, yet will attempt to overtake you. The bridge is narrow so if they then swerve to avoid oncoming traffic, you've no where go except the ... [more]

Dangerous roundabout. Cars/lorries are usually more concerned about watching traffic on their right than cyclists coming up on their left. Its too risky so my solution is to mount the pavement instead. Please make this roundabout cyclist sa ... [more]

Whole new neighbourhood being built yet zero provision for cyclists, only cars - as usual. Meant to be residential and office, so please prioritize cyclists into wood wharf.

There is no provision for cyclists on the busy/fast Prestons Rd. Here is where bicycles exit the safety of the Poplar Dock, but not safe to cross the road. I frequently cycle on the pavement against traffic to avoid being with the trucks

Impossible for cyclists to safely approach the junction of Poplar High St (PHS) and Prestons Rd (PR). Suggest removing left turn into PHS from PR, make this section of PHS bus and cycle only. Will reduce use of PHS as a rat run and make acc ... [more]

This crossing is frequently crowded. Cars often block the crossing when the lights change. Please add road markings/potential fines for not leaving a 10m or so gap around the crossing

Remove right turn for cars into Branch Rd. This will prevent the traffic jams that frequently appear along Narrow St from cars using it as a rat run without affecting residents access

This road is too narrow for two traffic and cyclists. Please make Hale St one way (North bound only) or block access to/from E India Dock Rd

The 'cycle path' on the left side of the road is always inaccesbile due to parked cars. Please add double yellow so that cyclists can safely avoid on coming cars

More space for cycling. Close some of the road?

Make it easier for cyclists to turn right

Cyclists need a way across here. At peak times close this to private vehicles and make a separate cycling lane

Close lots of roads during rush our times. Allow buses and delivery vehicles and people with disabilities to drive. People can cycle, walk or take public transport on the much safer roads.

Cycling here is really horrid. Make more safe space for cycling and more people will cycle

Cycling here is horrible. Make more safe space for cyclists

This is just used as a rat run. Close in the middle, residents can still access parking from either end.

Open the Marshgate Raceway already - we want to start setting quarter-mile records!

Violet Road is used as a cut through to the A13 avoiding the A12, despite being a residential area. There are high levels of traffic and speeding in a 20mph zone. Closing the bridge over Limehouse Cut would allow resident access, improve ro ... [more]

The chicanes on the shared path under the roundabout/overpass make distancing impossible and could be removed quickly and easily. A better long-term solution would be a longer, shallower straight ramp.

Alternative to the "widen cycle path" suggestion. Either close the southern end of Back Church lane or make it one-way southbound. Everything in that area will still be easily accessible by car but no longer useful as a rat-run.

Longer green light for the westbound cycle lane. The queues here get bad enough that you may need to wait for two full sequences of the traffic lights to get through. With distancing, this queue probably now extends through the previous int ... [more]

At modal filter, southbound cyclists are directed into Santander Cycles docking station. There should be a single wide cycleway through the modal filter instead of the existing 2 narrow ones.

Cycling is not permitted through the road closure here. To improve, change the 'no vehicles' signs to 'no motor vehicles' signs.

Dangerous junction for cyclists, difficult to get into the correct lane unless turning left.

Rat running traffic here is not good for park access.

Multiple cycling crashes seen here due to drivers turning. Make cycle path wider here to give more space for cyclists.

Allow two-way cycling here.

Road surface terrible here for Bikes. Needs sorting out.

Barrier to three mill island makes it a bottle neck for pedestrians and cyclists. Now is very busy area. Can the barrier be moved? So the path is wider? Also there is a metal plaque on the ground for the Jubilee walk. This can get very ... [more]

If you are coming up from Three Mill Lane very difficult to locate and access the subway safely. Needs some work doing on Hancock Road e.g a cycle ramp, better signage.

Please add lighting! This is a very dangerous area for pedestrians and for cyclists when they use it coming back from work in the evening when dark. Many people got attacked and mugged here due to lack of lighting.

Roman Road in general needs more space for cyclists. This is one of the main routes people use to cycle to work/centre of London, yet it doesn't have enough segregated lanes.

Paving is large enough here to add a seperated cycleway. Roman Road in general needs more space for cyclists. This is one of the main routes people use to cycle to work/centre of London, yet it doesn't have enough segregated lanes.

The pavement where CS3 crosses over here was recently "improved" by adding some large planters. In reality all that this did was constrict space for both pedestrians and cyclists and force them into conflict with one another.

The signage for CS3 here is appalling. Anyone using this route for the first time gets lost. This is one intervention that could be helped by a bit of paint.

Speed restriction gates make access difficult when carrying loads, towing a trailer or child bike and non standard bikes, especially difficult for elderly or disabled cyclists.

We need this river crossing operating.

The Junction between Lichfield and Grove needs to be rethought. Lichfield is a quiet cycle toad, filtered at the end, but cyclists have to use a beg button to cross, in the middle of the narrow pedestrian crossing. There must be a way to re ... [more]

Poor signage directs cyclists straight to Tescos with sign saying Stratford. Access to Three Mill Lane is via steps and a choice of pavement or one way street going the opposite way.

Narrow pavement with guard rails makes social distancing impossible

School street and the very narrow pavement also has a railing making it impossible to socially distance while dropping kids. But please Widen the pavement, remove the railing and close the street at pickup/drop times!

can you enclose the cycleway along here - the market traders and pedestrians on the eastbound side stray into the cyclelane the whole time

Road suddenly narrows - traffic routinely breaks the speed limit. Needs traffic lights to hold back traffic when cyclists cross the bridge

More space for bikes please, some cars drive too fast in this location

Close Agnes Street to prevent rat running

Pavement used for queue outside Lidl. Too narrow for social distancing

Dear Sir/Madam, As discussed with some of our neighbors, we would like to request the installation of 2 bike hangars in our area (in front of 332 Old Ford Road). We cycle on a daily basis and have to carry the bike upstairs everyday as w ... [more]
