Cycle paths linking from Winklebury into route up to hospital, would help key workers

Add cycle paths into new estate, this would link in to the cycle route to four lanes schools

Local school, needs better access for cyclists

Dedicated cycle paths throughout the estate. How is it we allow new housing estates to be built with no cycle paths?

Widen the road to allow for better cycle access. As there are houses along it, I can't see how you could shut it to cars, also there's a small industrial estate

Path too narrow. Road too busy for children to cycle to school.

Long straight road encourages speeding, often well over the 30mph limit

Mulfords Hill needs widened pavement for shared path or a well marked cycle lane on the road.

Path too narrow. Road too busy for children to cycle to school.

Remove cycling obstruction barrier making through route parallel to Mulfords Hill

Widen path to make cycleway

This is part of the national cycle ways, on road. It's not acceptable as it's a busy cut through for traffic and is not a two lane road.

Alliw contraflow cycling on New Road

Shared use footway is too narrow with poor sight lines. Needs replacing

Shared use footway on Pack Lane too narrow for social distancing and crosses many driveways. Provide on road segregated cycleway or close road to through motorists

Add segregated cycleway to Kempshott Lane - busy wide road but an essential link for cyclists. Plenty of room to narrow the road for cyclists.

The shared use footways on Kingsclere Road are too narrow for social distancing. Create separate segregated cycleways to give pedestrians enough room.

Adopt cycleway linking Greywell Road and Hatch Lane (behind Hatch Pub) and maintain it, including cleaning surface and cutting back overgrown vegetation

Add on-road segregated cycleway by narrowing A30 between North Waltham/Dummer and Basingstoke Kempshott Roundabout (Wallop Drive). Road is sufficiently wide, especially where parts are hatched.

Rooksdown Lane is an important route for cyclists and pedestrians but is unmaintained. Sweep the surface, cut back the vegetation

Add segregated cycleway on Timberlake Road by narrowing for motor vehicles - would allow cycling on this busy wide road - need to link with either Glebe Gardens/Church Square or Essex Road.

Add segregated cycleway on New Road by closing one lane to motor vehicles - would allow two-way cycling on this busy one-way street

Eastrop Park is too narrow to use as a shared use path - add segregated cycleway on Eastrop Way and Eastrop Lane instead to allow cyclists to social distance from pedestrians

Cycle track between Basing Road and Eastrop Park is always too overgrown which prevents social distancing.

Speeding cars meaning many cyclists on pavements. This is a former class A road so plenty of width to introduce cycle lane.

Existing shared use path is too narrow for social distancing, road is used for speeding, drop speed limit on Cliddesden Lane, narrow the road, and add on-road segregated cycleway

Speeding cars meaning many cyclists on pavements. This is a former class A road so plenty of width to introduce cycle lane.

Tricky/hostile to cycle here into main transportation hub. Widen path and install cycle lane

Lots of space for cars and pedestrians but very little for bikes.

Narrow footpath leading into the vehicular part of Reading Road. Needs widening with proper crossing.

Really dangerous road with cars giving cyclists little room, if a cycle lane could be installed it would help greatly

There is no cycle way on this 40mph major road. Cyclists always cause congestion at peak times as it is difficult to pass with heavy traffic.

Footpath between bridge and Tiverton road (full length) of area needs an overhaul and relaying. Trees overgrown and Path uneven.

Improve pedestrian bridge to increase space for both cyclists and pedestrians. Increase the height of barriers to prevent people falling into carriageway below.

This is a very narrow road with parked cars. It needs to have safe access for cycling

new shared use path starts here - for some reason, cycling is not allowed to the actual dropped kerb Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom)

To get here, a cyclist would have cycled round a busy roundabout and along a dual carriageway, so why the shared use path starts here is beyond me!. New shared use path starts just before toucan crossing Location: , Basingstoke (England ... [more]

End of Cycle Route sign Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom) although the inner section of Viables Roundabout is signposted as a cycle path, so I think this is a failure of communication between different parts of Hampshir ... [more]

Link from Viables Roundabout to Porter Road. Beware of crossing the shared cycle path (left and right) which has poor visibility. Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom)

...assume one is continuing in a northerly direction, the next challenge is crossing Carpenters Down. Does one use the distinctly uninviting underpass (with a strong aura of hazard)

Cycle path ends before road, and with a raised kerb, Lower Brook Street/Millennium Court, Basingstoke Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) Note to Councils - ending a cycle path 1-2 metres before a road, and without a dro ... [more]
