Typical Lea Bridge Road side road treatment. Continuous footway aligned with cycleway https://t.co/yJzkXKO7aF

This junction going eastbound, and the one preceding it, positions a cycle lane for going straight on directly across a lane for ongoing traffic to turn left. Cars here tend to drive quickly and the left turning lane always seems to have a ... [more]

This location is two ways for cyclists but one way for motorists. Lots of motorists don't look or stop when pulling out of junction as they're not looking for or expecting bikes.

This road has just been improved however it is lethal. The cycle lane is inconsistent. It does not exist in places. And the cars and drivers in this area need to be educated to make way for cyclists especially those with children as they ar ... [more]

The chance to put in a decent cycle path has been missed. Poorly designed entry and exits at road junctions make this impossible to use and pavement clutter of poles and bollards make it unsafe. At the end having to cut across 3 lanes of tr ... [more]

Narrow bridge that makes cycling danderious in peak trafic

cycle lanes are not properly layout, dangerous drivers too close to cyclists and blind spot.

Leyton: recent Olympic upgrades are superficial and should be supporte by making Leryton into a proper town centre again; remove the gyratory and severely calm traffic so it becomes a walking and cycling destination. The nearby M11 link roa ... [more]

Bell Corner: A terrible layout with far too many traffic lanes and insufficient space for walking; plenty of shops and access to the William Morris Gallery further west; This location is directly on the Black Path route, an ancient trading ... [more]

Walthamstow interchange: a major transport hub with many flaws. Too many general vehicle lanes on Hoe St., high speeds, poor connectivity to E-W cycle routes. Should be developoed in conjunction with Walthamstow central

Bakers Arms: The potential for a great hub for people; simply taking the slip lanes away would be a great improvement, but the buzzing shop and residnetial environment would have great opportunities to be come a great local hub

Markhouse: Plenty of shops, and old cinema now used as Bingo hall, a clock tower; good location for a brillant place for people

Lea Bridge Road has toxic combination of motor vehicle parking and heavy traffic, and in consequence is avoided by all but hardened cyclists, despite it being a key desire line for commuter cyclists. Measures required include relocating par ... [more]

Selbourne Road makes for an unsafe link between two good quiet routes. There is enough space to fit a separate route in.

The Lea Bridge Road is the major arterial route for cyclists from the west essex/redbridge area to central london. It is also used by buses, trucks and cars. It feels very dangerous and I have been knocked down there, breaking 2 bones in th ... [more]

Walthamstow town centre The junction of Hoe St and the High St should become a bustling town centre. The NW site is free for developemnt and Hoe St is due a makeover. Make the area much better for walking and cycling and severely reduce sp ... [more]

The Olympic Park work along the Ruckholt rd / eastway seem to have made cycling inractuture worse than they used to be. The existing seperated cycle lane has been removed. A new footbride is being installed over the railway line at the west ... [more]

The pedestrian/cycle lights here are very confusing. The second set turn green a good few seconds before the first set. Very often traffic coming from Leytonstone that is turning right do so when the lights are often green for cyclists and ... [more]

Traffic on the High Street is northbound only but there are cycle lanes for north and southbound cycles. Vehicles often park across both cycle lanes and pedestrians walk out into the cycle lane without looking, unaware the cycle lane is the ... [more]

Cars permanently parked on cycle lane - main bus route to Leyton and bus garage - buses can't get through either.

Grove Road should be a quiet side street, perfect for cycling... except it is used by rat runners to avoid traffic on Lea Bridge Rd. I have seen a number of very near misses with motor vehicles and cycles. It should be closed off at one end ... [more]

An absolutely nightmare of a road to cycle along, including some particularly clueless and outdated cycle lanes that appear and disappear as you head along the pavement. Would be perfect for an overhaul.

Lea Bridge Road has an narrow obstacle-ridden cycle path painted on the pavement of this fast and busy main road. A lot of cyclists commute along this route. Better cycling facilities along this road would be highly beneficial.

There are cycle paths here, but they are not easy to use. Cars park all along the cycle paths making it impossible to use them. I often end up cycling on the path to avoid traffic. Can we fine people who park in cycle paths? Or off road cyc ... [more]

currently has a v. Dangerous contra flow cycle lane down the one way system.

Better direct access to central London from here would be better, the dog leg route through Springfield is a bit of a nightmare and the Lea Bridge road is quite dangerous.

Selborne Road is a key E-W connection, between the quite routes East and West. Selborne Road is very busy with buses. It is scary to cycle here amongst them. The road is wide enough for a segregated cycle lane. The junctions with the bus ... [more]
