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:

162195Photo #162195As 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 Iland to the seafront at Eastney.Cycleway:

151668Photo #151668Covid pedestrian area up Belgrave road could be shared with cycles on the outside . just open the traffic bollards a little. otherwise cyclists are trapped in the single lane traffic with cars. hold up the traffic speed and cannot ride safely either. I know this may not be possible but it would be a real help to allow shared pop up walking and cycle lane in rush hours school run times where the pedestrian widenned area goes 100% unsused. I have been cycling up there for 3 weeks and at school run times eg between 7.30 and 9am I have seen ZERO pedestrians using it. also rush hour in the afternoon eg 3pm -5pm shared pop up would be brilliant.

148005Photo #148005Not one of the above categories, but safer and more secure parking needed for cycles. As an example, I know of two people who had locked cycles stolen from Springfields on the same weekend. Both reported to police and Springfields, the latter saying their CCTV didn’t cover that area. People will not cycle if they half expect to have to walk home. Also, too many cars parked illegally around the bridge on Roman Bank so as to avoid paying parking at Springfields. This makes it dangerous for cyclists at that point.Cycleway:

147621Photo #147621Harrowby Lane from approx this point to Belton Lane is a narrow road with a poorly maintained pavement on one side. The pavement slopes and there are street lights and a telecom box plus very often parked vehicles avoiding being being hit by large lorries that regularly speed up and down. Harrowby Lane is used as a "rat run" by huge lorries to access Alma Park Industrial Estate and the High Dyke. These lorries and the speed make not only walking hazardous but certainly cycling.
A flashing speed limit sign and a limit on vehicles weight eg:7.5 tonnes is needed to make this road safe.

143852Photo #143852Pavement & cycling provision required ALL along the Ashford Road on one side continuously.
At the moment it is too dangerous to walk or cycle from the nearby villages so we have to take a car. Pavements are very narrow, if they exist at all. They stop at the most dangerous places forcing pedestrians into the road. When they do appear again they are on the other side of the road - forcing people to walk on the very dangerous road and constant crossing in very dangerous areas. Cyclists are often knocked off their bikes, most people don't want to put their life at risk. So the healthy, environmentally friendly option is the most dangerous. This is simply unacceptable in this day and age. Pedestrian and cycle path all along this road (on the same side) is the answer. Instead of building more houses, buy a strip of land next to the road to make this happen. At this point there should be a pedestrian crossing for the Primary School and Sheldwich village; it would be a huge help at this accident hot-spot as there are many accidents here due to cars trying to get across this 4 way junction - putting cyclists, pedestrians and drivers at risk - with many young children around. Many thanks.
