150691Photo #150691Parking on both sides of the street causes tight road for cyclists and cars to share, and tight pavements. Parents with prams, cyclists, people in wheelchairs and pedestrians all have to suffer more dangerous daily lives just so that selfish people can own polluting and dangerous cars. Better streets and better public transport will help people make the move from private cars to walking, cycling, or public transport.Cycleway:

147175Photo #147175This crossing is awful in all directions. I feel I have to take my life in my hands crossing the road with huge SUVs coming from left, right and behind. As a major entrance to the forest pedestrians should have priority.Temporary closure:
