The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This listing only shows photos within Kingston upon Thames.

barriers prevent access by tricycles and kiddy trailers - as used by the kind of people that really appreciate quiet off road routes. Motorcycles can still squeeze through anyway so they don't work!

There is an abandoned tramway that runs from New Malden sation to Raynes Park Recreation Ground. This could be turned nto a cycle/walking route that would dramatically shorted the route between these 2 places and not involve crossing the ... [more]

No on-road cycling facilities means you are force to use a shared path which pedestrians resent sharing.

Dukes Avenue. This is the main route from Ham to the local shopping centre on Richmond Road. It is narrow and a bus route and not well lit. There is room for a cycle track which would take cyclists off the road and encourage the use of cycl ... [more]

Cycle path has no drop down kerbs, no priority give to cyclists at junctions

Official cycle route but always full of parked cars - space available, illegal sized cycle lanes.

I would love to see the whole of the A240 Go Dutch. There is a small section where cyclists have their own lane, however, one really does risk their life (any time day or night) cycling from Epsom and the Ewell by-pass through to Surbiton, ... [more]

Insuffcient infrastructure along this popular and busy route, you are just left to get on with it.

Numerous parked cars on the road blocking a whole lane on this marked cycle route - plenty if not all houses have driveways but go unused it seems.

National Cycle Route 4 is constantly blocked by illegally parked cars.

Illegal sized on road cycle lane despite the space available to do more

No cycling lane down this road, despite the space available.

Wide road but no cycling infrastracture

No cycle lane, lots of parked cars make cycling down here at busy times near impossible

Illegal sized cycle lane, in poor condition too.

Can we improve the cycle route between Kingston and Surbiton please? In particular the right hand turn from Surbiton Road into Surbiton Crescent is incredibly dangerous with buses and lorries often masking cyclists using this route

Kingston-upon-Thames already has a good start with some dedicated cycle lanes but some bits just don't join up, also lots are not clearly marked and some crossings are positively dangerous. Additionally cycle theft is the highest crime in t ... [more]

A243 Hook Road. It's a dual carriageway which is inhospitable to cyclists. TfL should provide a cycle track to link up with the ones they've provided further south by Chessington World of Adventures and teh daft short length of shared use b ... [more]

This is an important North South link for cyclists and the only option is to join the multi-lane one-way system. Neighbourhood committee voted against (only by one vote) a shared path on Queen Elizabeth Road

Cycle lanes up Brighton Road and Upper Brighton road would be good. Mini roundabout at Langley Road junction is difficult for cyclists due to speed of traffic and 5 different 'arms'

Getting around this part of Kingston is a nightmare. Going north up to Norbiton is awful. Loads of reasons to improve the routes up to Richmond Park

Kingston is a busy cycle mad town and efforts by the council or mayor should recognise this and encourage more to take up cycling or walking. Cycle safety must be of paramount importance to the local authorities but little seems to be d ... [more]

Timing of the crossing here for pedestrians/cyclists and horse riders is unfairly weighted in favour of "smoothing the traffic flow" Would make sense to allow people to cross all in one go - quicker for everyone (except drivers of course!)

Hammersmith Gyratory - designed for motor vehicles and treated by vehicle drivers as a race track. As a commuting cyclist (one of many) there is no easy route to/from hammersmith Bridge/Kensington where you can stay on your bike i.e. not ha ... [more]

An intersection that has led to many bicycle collisions with cars, including one involving my brother. difficult for cyclists to remain on Sopwith Way as there is no bicycle lane at all, despite being a 3-lane road into the town centre. Thi ... [more]

The town centre is favoured by many cyclists althougth the traffic system does not allow easy access across town.

Kingston for 3 reasons. 1. Richmond park needs a dedicated Dutch style cycle route from Kingston borough, opening up access to families in Kingston & Surbiton. 2. As a university town it has a huge number of cyclists. 3. In absence of an ... [more]

There is no safe way to cycle from Kingston centre (London Road) to Richmond Park.
