I’ve been less critical of others when it comes to compromises in Kingston’s cycle network, but this is unforgivably bad. Completely unacceptable design. t.co/iItm2hKb5E

As part of the Hook Road/Tolworth Healthy Streets proposals, Tolworth Road is now closed to through cars & vans at its junction with Red Lion Road. Plenty of space for people on bikes and walking to pass through though! 👍🚶‍♀️🚲

Separated Cycle lane needed, as parked cars narrow the road forcing cyclists to either play chicken with a truck, or go up onto the pavement and risk hitting one of the street lamps or a pedestrian.

Cyclist hit on Surbiton's new Ewell Road cycle lane by driver emerging from Langley Road.

Number of cars not giving way here needs addressing.

In a subsequent tweet:
The driver drove his car over the bike's rear wheel and cyclist's leg. The victim was strongly of the view that had a child on a bike been involved, it could have been killed.

Hawks Road is too busy for the size of road and due to narrow pavements and amount of pedestrian and cycle traffic. Perhaps make one way to resolve.

Cars frequently speeding down Cambridge road. Add traffic calming measures or reduce to 20mph.

Pavements are narrow and are uneven. need to be improved for elderly and disabled. We have a new dementia home, housing association accommodation and existing housing association. I often see the mobility scooters in the road because of poor pavements. Fishponds conservation area.

Track:

150275

Wide lanes mean traffic is fast - provide segregated cycle lane allowing cyclists to connect to Kingston from areas that havent benefited from mini-holland!

Cycleway:
Problem
150274

The cycle lane just ends here and traffic just squashes out any cyclist. There is also no provision for cyclists to safely get round the busy roundabout and this is a key route between Chessington and Surbiton which is a transport hub, and then to Kingston too. The traffic lanes are wide here so they could be reduced which would slow traffic and would allow for a segregated cycle way all the way from Mansfield Road to Surbiton!

Cycleway:
Problem

It would be very helpful to install "wands" on the cycle lanes, in both directions, to provide more protection for cyclists

Cycleway:

Remove the cones under the railway bridge before September: The cones to promote cycling and social distancing have been a disaster - especially for cyclists. In reducing road capacity back to levels of 1859, woefully inadequate by the 1950s, we now have a 2 mile tailback from the A24 to the A3. Unless these cones are removed before the local schools reopen in early September, we will have a serious environmental hazard of idling traffic running from New Malden to Cheam!

This is a very busy intersection of footpaths linking bowling greens, millennium green, Alexandra park, tennis courts etc and needs widening

Malden Road

Jumping to the edge of the Borough, a traffic lane has been closed in each direction on the Worcester Park underpass to give protected space to people on 🚲 & give more space to people walking on the South side. Cycle counters have been added recently here too 🔢

Make this a proper path with at least hardstanding. Most of the times it's a boggy mess and is a viable alternative to get to Claygate without having to use Woodstock Lane where you mix with cars at 60mph.

Poor visual separation of 2 way cycleway. Should have red tarmac. Raised manhole in junction is hazard too.

The whole residential zone bounded by Richmond Road, Park Road, Canbury Pk Rd and Tudor Drive could be one-way for cars with cycling contra-flow. No increase in journey times for cars. More space for cyclists.

The road/footways are ~14m wide of which ~12m is given to cars. Marked bays which are solely on the footway should be removed to make way for social distancing and allow wheelchairs/push chairs to pass.

Traffic lights CCTV cameras either side of bridge do not detect cyclists in the ASL. Reported ad nauseum to RBK but never actioned.

Cycleway:

Vehicles parked in advisory cycle lane force cyclists out into fast moving stream of traffic. Make this a 24 hour cycle lane and enforce it.

Temporary closure:
Problem
139390

Cars are allowed to park over the pavement making it an in hospitable environment for pedestrians and dangerous for cyclists as vehciles exit their parking space without checking properly/having a good view of the road due to parked vehicles on the road as well. Time to enforce the fact that there is no permitted parking on these shop frontages.

Track:
Problem
139389

Pinchpoints encourage motor vehciles to race between the gaps and motorists are often agressive towards oncoming cyclists. This is old-style traffic calming at its worst.

Cycleway:
Problem

Make this a segregated cycle route, it is not suitable for less confident cyclists. The road layout does not favour anything but motor vehicles, time to consider all road users & pedestrians instead of concentrating on reducing motor vehicle journey times.

Heavily used by cyclists who are at risk from close passing at bollards and speeding traffic. Stop school drop offs by car which when queueing mean cyclists cannot pass on inside and have to cycle in middle of road.

Cycleway:

Through traffic on a residential street sometimes speeding. It should have a modal filter at the Station Road end. The pavement could also be widened to incorporate street trees & on-street parking should be minimised as everyone has driveways

East side of Villiers Ave between Athelstan Rd and Lower Marsh Lane too narrow and bins often left out making it worse. Remove parked cars and create better walking space and safer cycling space.

Why not close Victoria road to all except buses and cycles, this would make the street safer and calmer, I’d also ban all the mopeds from deliveroo, uber eats and just eat from the borough as they often block footpaths and the riders leave a mess outside popular takeaways, McDonald’s, kfc etc.

Temporary closure:
Problem
126413

Queueing to get into Sainsbury's, along with a bus stop that blocks half the footpath makes getting past here difficult, the path needs to be widened, the bus stop needs to be removed and the supermarket trolleys need to go somewhere else.

Church road and old Malden lane ( they join at the kingston/ Epsom boundary) is an absolute nighymare. Cyclists and cats competing on difficult bends on a very tight toaf and it’s often used as a fast cut through when the A3 is closed. Solution: It needs to be one way with a cycle way and pedestrian pavement all the way to the Hogsmill tavern

Old Malden lane should be made one way Then one lane could be split for cyclists and pavement. I drive up old Malden lane every day to work and the bends are lethal when you have to negotiate cyclists and traffic coming the other way
