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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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]

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

CS2 cycleway - lack of good priority on the roundabout

A five minute video on the Guardian website showing the problems of CS2: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/video/2013/nov/15/cyclist-london-cycle-superhighway-2-video

Just enjoying the utter waste of money bike track on Bethnal Gn Rd. give way, dodge bins, car doors. Mad http://t.co/rEEqxp32Tu

Noticed today that useful cycle track on Shoreditch High St taken OUT - head in hands. Need more #space4cycling not less http://t.co/EvteE5UoRW

Narrow, right up against a fence, poles on both sides, and straight into the waiting area for a toucan crossing. Is this what I pay my taxes for?

Narrow ramp leading down to underpass beneath railway

So if the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign is at the end of one green bit, can you remount at the start of the next green bit the other side of the tactiles?

Dutch style cycling on the right on CS3

Cycle Superhighway 3 - there's some big roadworks here it isn't at all clear how to continue the route.

No cycling sign
