The diabolically bad Dean Lane cycleway. The route is fine. The width is fine. But the dropped entrances to private driveways aren't necessary (Dutch entrance kerbs should be used). The real problem though is just how steep the dropped … [more]

Cycle crossing of Wallbank Road. It could probably use some colour treatment (dyed asphalt) and be clearly raised above the carriageway, but it's not bad. There's a shared zebra crossing of Bridge Lane in the background.

Fantastic new Sparrow Crossing (walking and cycling) in Stockport. Keeps pedestrians and cycles separate, and provides a very safe place to cross the road! Also a lovely refurbished alley.

River Mersey was very high the day this photo was taken.

New link to residential streets from the new path

Incomplete separated crossing for walking and cycling. Pedestrians press a button, while it looks as though cyclists will be detected by loops in the surface. The cycleway continues to the right (north) and turns left (northwest) down … [more]

Need space for safe cycling between Sanderling road junction on the A627 and the Torkington road junction. This is a good way for cyclists to get from the suburbs out to rural lanes and the Middlewood way, but is currently vey busy and … [more]

Three metal chicanes installed at a cost of £3,000 which are dangerous and obstructive to general use of the provided path and create three unnecessary additional conflict points. If there was a real issue here, the path should’ve been … [more]

Separate cycleway to stop cars squeezing past cyclists on this narrow stretch of road

Parking restrictions (double yellow) to prohibit obstruction of Carriageway cycle lane

Signs reminding drivers of safe passing distances when passing cyclists would help along whole stretch of A6

This shared footway is ok, but is far too short to be worthwhile.

This road is easily wide enough to have a segregated cycle path on each side of the road. Which would make it a useful link between Stockport and Bredbury

Although technically separate from the pavement there is little to differentiate the cycle path here heading east. Heading west it is only paint. Ajusting this so that the space was used for a wand orca segregated path on both sides of the … [more]

The cycle lane abruptly ends here with no obvious way back on to the road. Providing a better way back into the road would be helpful

Lot of fast moving traffic, loads of heavy goods vehicles. Poor access, intermittent shared path. The paths here are very wide - easily enough room to put in proper on-road cycle lane each side.

Very narrow road due to bridge and a lot of heavy goods traffic. Improve access on/off the shared use path Northbound. Only option Southbound would be lights...

The path under the bridge here is always full of deep gravel, making the route needlessly harder. If it was swept this would make a nice quiet route in / out of Romiley

Joining the cycleway here at a pedestrian crossing is difficult and non obvious. It should merge in from the road to make the transition simple

Exiting the cycle path here is horrible, it requires looking behind you for fast moving vehicles while also being aware of vehicles in front turning into the road. Ideally the radius of this junction should be reduced and the cycle way … [more]

The cycle path here is non obvious and looks like a pavement. It should be updated to have either a coloured surface dressing or other measures to make it more obvious as a cycle path

There is on street parking here when the houses have large drives. This could be converted to an uphill protected cycleway for people travelling between Stockport and Bredbury

The cycleway here always has cars parked in it. It should be converted to a protected one

Segregated cycleway along Finney Lane. Cars pass to close/fast currently

Segregated Cycleway along Styal Road

There is a drainage problem on the road crossing here. Every time it rains, the road fills with water.

Don't spend millions on a bridge but rather on a lot of small improvements all over the borough.

Very poorly designed, piecemeal cycleway along Didsbury road should be made into modern segregated route for entire length.

Add signage and marking: token cycleway on pavement disappears with no indication where to go.

Widen path to allow shared use.

Section of TPT is very narrow and badly overgrown

High-speed curve of Station Rd is dangerous for cyclists but forms part of NCN. Segregation and/or speed control needed.

Dedicated cycle lane needed on Stockport Rd West to connect Osborne Street with Vernon Park / Newbridge Lane.

The pavement on the northbound side is wide enough to allow a joint cycleway/footpath. This would help southbound cyclists because of the bend and difficulty in turning right into Bruntwood Lane.

Cycle lane needed as road is narrow and number of pedestrian crossings make it more so ad therefore drivers crowd cyClists

There is no crossing on Ack Lane which is a busy road. Putting a toucan crossing in here would help pedestrians, but also cyclists could have a continuous route from Pownall Green School through to Hillbrook Road and along Kits Moss Lane … [more]

Make this footpath into a cycleway so that there would be a continuous cycle route from Cheadle Hulme to Heald Green avoiding Etchels Road. It would also give access to the existing North South cycle path to Brentwood Park.

There is a contraflow cycle lane here, but cars always park in it. Could it be segregated?

This road is not pleasant to cycle on. Perhaps the speed limit could be reduced or a dedicated cycleway installed?

Marple Road should have a dedicated cycle lane, or where the path is wide enough a shared cycle and pedestrian route.

Make a proper cyleway to link Bramhall Park with Cheadle Hulme village and thus create an opportunity for residents ( and others) to cycle safely into Cheadle Hulme for shopping/recreation and station

The A6MARR Cycleway needs a crossing installed on Hall Moss Lane. I don't think the designer must have realised how busy and fast the road is at this point!

This footpath is due to be upgraded to bridleway (and presumably paved) as part of the Woodford housing development. Will link the estate to Lostock Hall Road Poynton and train station off road. Can this be bought forward now?

The new A555 link road from the A6 to Manchester Airport is a step in the right direction even though it is too narrow for easy side by side cycling/walking. However, There as are no lights at all this makes it difficult for those who use … [more]

Dedicated cycleway heading to parrs wood along this road

The whole of the A6 needs a dedicated cycle lane similar to that on oxford road. Many people would cycle along the route in and out of Manchester.

Cylce link on A6 to join bypass cycleway to Middlewood Way

Segregated cycleway needed to link up High Peak to Stockport/Manchester cycle routes, particularly for cycle commuters

The road and pavement need resurfacing. If it were better, people could walk or cycle here rather than the significantly more dangerous New Moor Lane.

This is a really dangerous bit of road for cyclists. The road is narrow, steep, with a blind brow to the bridge. There is about 1 metre of designated cycle path that is no use at all. This is a route children use to walk and cycle to … [more]

Strines Road is not safe for cyclists - a cycle route along this route would be fantastic

It would be lovely if this surface could be improved for cyclists and for people with strollers - it's a link route between Marple, Marple Bridge and Compstall for Green spaces and for local shopping without using a car

Would be lovely if this was a cycle-way would allow for lovely circular routes on green lanes from Marple - great for families

Coming down Brabyns to make the right turn onto Longhurst Lane is dangerous, it's a fast stretch of road and a difficult manoevure. Needs a cycle specific option.

Add a cyclists left turn out of here onto the A6. At the moment if you've tried to cut the A6 by going along Park Road / Hartington road you hit a traffic queue and a difficult left onto the main road.

Needs a separated cycle way, traffic queues so close to the kerb the only way through is to go down the centre of the road towards oncoming traffic, it's like that for a couple of miles

Needs to have a cycleway along this road and in particular something needs to change at these lights so that a person going straight on (eastwards) on a bicycle doesn't end up a sandwich between the straight on and the left turn traffic.

Resurface this to make it easier to cycle down. Useful off-road route Poynton-Bramhall.

Very recently constructed cycle/pedestrian path George Road Stockport. Cycle lane has no drop kerbs and Give way markings are side street are too far forward for safe use. I certainly won’t be using it! @Chris_Boardman @StockportMBC … [more]

Middlewood Way a fast smooth surface.

Alternative route avoiding large and complex roundabout is NOT used by local cyclists 'cos it's so intimidating and badly maintained. Even during the day this is scary. At night the lamps will not illuminate past the overgrown veg

New path and bridge leading to the main Cadkirk Bridge near Stockport #43733

Chadkirk Bridge opened Sunday 29th July at 11:30 am Connect2 project Grid ref is SJ 9367.8965 for Vale Road which is the local access to Chadkirk Country Park from A627 at Otterspool. Alternatively come via Romiley train station and pedal … [more]

Two-can crossing. This was not set up! I saw these two cans there and took the photo and left them there. It was only a few seconds after I took the photo that I realised this was a play on 'Toucan Crossing'.

Stairway to heaven it isn't, unlit, steep,slippery metal steps, impossible for many to negotiate . The recently opened 558 cycle route.
