Pavement wider, overgrown hedge and pavement not very wide.

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]

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

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.

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

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

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.

Pavements very narrow along Richmond Road

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

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]

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.

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.

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).

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. ... [more]

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

Lots of pedestrian traffic along this road and very narrow pavements. Suggest Queens Road from the Albert pub to Kingston Gate is made one way with the other half given over to cycle and walking paths. Could also close Alexandra, Tudor and ... [more]

Cone off side of the slip road for wider access for walkers. Both sides are being used to access the green spaces of the Hogsmill nature reserve and so pavements are very congested.

High volume of pedestrians and narrow pavement. Will get even worse when the schools go back next week. Pollution levels also very high

No safe crossing point for kids at Christ Church school's Berrylands entrance.

The pavement is particularly narrow because of a large tree on the grass verge. Quite a lot of people walk up and down Kenley Road as it is a route to Kingston Hospital and two schools. It would be possible to remove two roadside parking sp ... [more]

Traffic speed and footpath width, particularly around zebra crossing - add a chicane

Traffic speed and footpath width, particularly around zebra crossing - add a chicane

It would be really good to have a cycle and footpath through the cemetary linking up Villiers Road with Bonner Hill Road.

Social distancing very difficult outside Sainsbury’s with bus stop and queuing shoppers. Motorbike and car parking should be removed from north side of road and loading bay relocated to side street to allow south side pavement to be widen ... [more]

Pavement too narrow with bus stop by residential housing. Danger to pedestrians and no social distancing possible. Danger for residents and pedestrians waiting for bus

Lovely footpath by the river but it's too narrow alongside the sportsfield and race track. Should be made widened & join with Long Meadow

Very narrow path, busy main road making difficult to social distance

Pavements very narrow, very busy road so can't pass easily

Trees and fence are too far out into the pavement making for a narrow blind corner that can force pedestrians into the road.

Pavement on the East side is too narrow due to trees and parking spaces. Pavement is used a lot by people with buggies and pushchairs.

Urgent removal of BT phonebox to aid social distancing

So many people pushing prams and buggies the only way to pass is to enter the cycle lane and almost get taken out by a cyclist. Widen footpath near entrances to river path.

Pavement too narrow to allow for pedestrians to social distancing- could this road be made access only and semi pedestrianised during COVID

Hideous steps and stepped ramps. Masterpieces of inaccessibility :-/ To really rub it in that no cycling sign is lit - but not the rest of the bridge! https://twitter.com/simon_nuttall/status/1101065625076727809
