165886Photo #165886As previously mentioned both cyclists and pedestrians are too close to faster than speed limit traffic. The ONLY solution is to take them both away from near the road and not just widen what’s already there. I think this would only be possible using an easterly route and not on the west side of Eastern Road. Make a combined cycle and pedestrian route that attempts to follow the shoreline, possibly using a similar method as was used on Hilsea Ramparts/Alexandra Park combining a concrete sea wall and pathway wide enough for cyclists and pedestrians. Central government appear to be handing out money for anything so ask them as part of protecting Portsmouth from rising sea levels. In time this could be undertaken near Milton Common shoreline to give a route right down the east of Portsea Island to the seafront at Eastney.Cycleway:

165850Photo #165850No footpath linking Fishtoft and Freiston.

162211Photo #162211The Eastern Road cycleway is a fantastic facility but it is too narrow at this point and visibility at the traffic signals is very limited. This causes conflict and danger for both cyclists and pedestrians. If it can be widened it would be of great benefit to all users and improve the perception of danger as a result of both pedestrians and cyclists moving close to the carriageway..Cycleway:
