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.

Pavement wider, overgrown hedge and pavement not very wide.

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 poo ... [more]

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

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 ... [more]

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

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 1950 ... [more]

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

Swap the cycleway and pedestrian way - pedesrians want to be by the river and block the cycle path. Still have pedestrian way up in the park, but also cycle path

The cycleway desperately needs resurfacing

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.

Very poor visual separation of cycleway. Not apparent to petrol station motorists they're crossing 2 way bike lane. Raise & red tarmac

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

Very poor visible separation of 2 way cycleway on stretch past Topps Tiles. Needs contrast colouring, raised kerbs.

Put modal filter here to stop Birkenhead Ave ratrunners. Two way cycle lane unsafe.

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.

Pavement widening needed due to queues for shops especially outside butchers

Regular pavement parking means pavements are unnecessarily narrowed - enforcement needed

Regular queues of people with bikes outside Evans bikeshop requires pedestrians to step into the road to be able to get past let alone social distance

Modal filter (bikes/pedestrians only) to create low traffic neighbourhood

No pedestrian lights or phasing at this arm of a busy crossing. Busy pavement OUTSIDE A SCHOOL.

Reduce flair of junction into Bonner Hill Road to make it easier to cross

Put a modal filter here

Overhanging hedge takes up half the pavement (literally) on a blind corner for pedestrians

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.

Pavement was made narrower, if a buggy comes towards you you have to step into the road to pass without even considering 2m rules or 1m rule if in place...

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

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.

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 vehicle ... [more]

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.

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 vehicl ... [more]

Pavements very narrow for pedestrians widen/remove parking

Pavements very narrow along Richmond Road

Full provision for cyclists invliding families at the lights

New junction with continuous pavement and cycle path along Dukes Ave - see recent Waltham Forest example on Lea Bridge Road at Essex Road.

Add a modal filter here, to stop rat running traffic from the A307 to Tudor Drive and vice versa. Many residents use this road to walk or cycle to Ham Parade and Ham Common and children walk and cycle this route to Grey Court School.

The traffic lights have no pedestrian crossing so pedestrians wanting to get to the hospital have to guess when it's safe for them to cross. There is a small island but then you have to cross between cars queuing for the lights and there of ... [more]

This is supposed to be the last GoCycle route but TfL has suspended funding. This cycleway needs to happen to facilitate a direct route between Kingston & New Malden

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.

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 drivew ... [more]

Sheephouse Way and Knollmead need to be linked so as to take the traffic pressure off Church Road/Old Malden Lane (this was the original intention when the area was built up in the 1930s).

Modal filter to create 2 Low Traffic Neighborhoods in Berrylands. Kills rat-running to A3, creating safer roads for local people.

Install bus gate to create 2 Low Traffic Neighborhoods in Berrylands. Stops rat-running to/from A3, creating safer roads for local people

Speed bumps/one way/narrow passing points to stop excessive speeds on a residential road.

Better lighting of the tunnel under the railway. Currently it's very scary when it's dark.

A really difficult five way junction for pedestrians and cyclists; a regular route for St Matthews Primary children. Could do with traffic lights similar to the Ewell Rd junction.

Enforce 20mph with massive Thames Water and Network Rail lorries and contractors. Very popular walking/cycling route but extremely unsafe with current levels of speeding traffic, pavement too narrow and only on one side of road. Widen to ... [more]

Road narrows on Villiers between Athelstan Rd and Lower Marsh Lane due to parked cars both sides, pavement quite narrow and bus stop means peds walking in road. Remove parked cars and create cycle lane plus more room for peds.

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.

Pavement not widen enough and traffic too fast to react if you need to step into the road to step out further away.

Very wide road should have cycle lanes to bypass onarrow stretch of Ditton Rd where cars aggressively drive up cyclists backsides

Removal of pedestrian lights and replaced with zebra. It literally takes 4 mins to cross the road here if you wait for the lights, and <10 cars a day turn from Richmond Road to Walter St.

Footpath here is narrow and blind (you can't see if anyone is coming the other way until you're part way along it). The left lane of the road could be closed (and would help the bus station just around the corner).

Road link with cycle way to connect Berrylands and New Malden, reducing congestion on other entireties to Berrylands

Finish the half complete cycle schemes before starting any more!!

Heavily used by cyclists and pedestrians, esp children getting to school.

Create segregated cycle lane along the whole length of Jubilee Way, linking Chessington to Tolworth and therefore the new Tolworth to Kingston route.

Make our road one way to stop people using it as a cut through.

Create segregated bike path along Kingston Road

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 leav ... [more]

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.

Cyclists resort onto using pavements as they don’t feel safe on the roads. Reduce traffic down King Charles road by preventing it being used as a rat run.

TfL could remove the central reservation to free up space for proper width cycle lanes.

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. ... [more]

Stop car through traffic driving north to south along Eden Street to further reduce traffic levels, reduce danger and improve air quality.

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

Too many parents dropping kids off here for Hollyfield School. Congestion & footpath too narrow. Modal filter would discourage unnecessary short trips at schooltime

Junction needs traffic lights to allow cars to exit Berrylands more easily. Would then allow modal filtering of King Charles Road

Junction needs traffic lights to allow cars to come out of Berrylands easily, freeing up King Charles road for modal filtering.

Leave access open to allow Berrylands residents to access their homes.

Leave access open to allow Berrylands residents to access their homes.

Allow cycles but instruct slow speed and respect pedestrian priority.

A really difficult five way junction for pedestrians and cyclists; a regular route for St Matthews Primary children. Could do with traffic lights similar to the Ewell Rd junction.

Make it clear which path is for pedestrians and which is for cyclists, many of the signs on the path have rubbed away. Improve signage.

Traffic calming, (run through for traffic) busy times!

Remove barriers, allow cycling and create separate segregated footpath and bike lane. Easily done

Remove cycle lane on St. Marks Hill. Not really used. Was safe before on my bike cycling up and down St. Marks Hill. Fast cyclists still cycle on the road. Too narrow now for the buses, which the elderly, kids and commuters use. More eco us ... [more]

Come Winter everyone will be back in their cars. Would be unwise to block this bridge to traffic. Ewell road is already very narrow for traffic. Parents drive their kids and drop them off at Hollyfield School. Kids will not start walking or ... [more]

A cycle path from chessington to Kingston is needed

Traffic calming desperately needed in Cranes Park

Cut through for cars but excellent route for cycling and walking.

Cars overhanging driveway and obstructing footpath

The pavement is very narrow here, impeded by street furniture.

Heavy traffic uses Lamberts Road as short cut to Kingston. Lamberts Road is used greatly by school children. Villiers Avenue is Residential road much disturbed by heavy vehicles at great speed

Broaden the traffic light crossing to make the crossing into the cut straight across rather than a dog-leg to the left- benefits pedestrians and cyclists

Add a segregated bike route to connect from hook up to tolworth and on to Kingston Also useful for anyone cycling out to Surrey this way

Reduce flare of junction to control speeds into winery lane and make it easier for pedestrians to cross

Rat run from the A3 and Hook Road. Block the entrance. Narrow road and cars are driving too fast down this road. Dangerous to cross, not safe for elderly and school kids. Drivers can use Thornhill Road or stay on the A3. Plus other residen ... [more]

Cars race down the road making dangerous for cyclist to use the road as save cut into Kingston. It also makes it a hazard for the children of Hollyfield school. Suggest you install modal filters as this will help reduce the rat running t ... [more]

Cranes Park has too much thru traffic, often at speeds well over 30mph. We need to reduce the number of cars and encourage safe cycling on our street.
