Free left turn for cyclists into a contra-flow.

Left turn removed as part of 20mph programme creating a much safer junction pedestrians and cyclists.

Two cyclists dismount sign connected by an awkward barrier.

Poor road junction installed 2020 introduces new road danger for cyclists.

Signs for both segregated and unsegregated shared use; they can't both be correct!

cycleway degenerates into a shared use pavement once you are over the bridge.

Access controls installed summer 2020, possibly to deter the local motorbiker which uses the cut through. The motorbiker is now observed going up the bank at the side.

Cycleway over the recently reopened Silver Jubilee Bridge between Runcorn and Widnes.

St John's Place modal filter from 1985. Station Parade was a rat run before these bollards went in.

Carrageway reallocated to create a cycleway across the bridge, while pedestrians use the old narrow footway. I'm not sure what the "End of Route" sign is about.

I think this means they want us to ride on the pavement.

The Bridge has finally reopened. After a gap of over three years you can now legally ride from Runcorn to Widnes - and bicycles don't have to pay the toll.

  • Icon 164612 Provide a tarmac path between the end of Cow lane and the riverside path. This area gets very muddy for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Icon 164611 Because this is an uphill route, cyclists are travelling much slower than the cars and need a separated cycle lane to feel safe.
  • Icon 164608 Widen the footpath and give cyclists dedicated safe cycle paths
  • Icon 164607 Byway blocked by local residents parked car
  • Icon 164603 Consider how to deliver radial segregated cycleways/20mph/low traffic/quietway routes within 1-2 miles of station to facilitate safe cycle commuting - encourage people to make 'last mile' journeys via active modes
  • Icon 164602 This footpath is less than a meter wide and has a bus stop. It needs to double in width which could easily be accommodated by removing the central hash lines in the middle of the road. These central lines only encourage faster traffic speeds in a built up area much of which is quickly becoming residential.
  • Icon 164601 Path is much wider on the northside road than the southside, would this be better for a wider cyclepath to connect the far west of the city?
  • Icon 164600 This footpath junction acts as a blindspot as users are unable to see each other from under the bridge and on Holmes Road. The connection between these two areas is poor as the cycle path does not continue. Increase the footpath to road ratio.
  • Icon 164599 Cycle path carries on, footpath curves round the traffic sign map. Pedestrians often use the cycle path and not the designated footpath. Need to reconfigure.
  • Icon 164597 Too much traffic uses Dunrobin Road as a rat run. Junctions either end are therefore busy and risky with turning moves. Filtering Dunrobin Road here would make everything safer and walking and cycling more attractive, especially if combined with filters on Chaplin Road.
  • Icon 164596 Belgrave Road and Chaplin Road form a risky crossroads with multiple conflicting movements. too much traffic uses Chaplin Road as a rat run. Filtering Chaplin road on the North of the B road junction would make everything safer and walking and cycling more attractive
  • Icon 164595 At least part of Town Road should be pedestrianised. It’s a very centre of town street by the blue clock. There’s the ring road available for through traffic.
