145838Photo #145838Temporary widening into the carriageway for social distancing is pushing cyclists into the road. The number of buses that use this route make it especially dangerous.

142149Photo #142149The Wandle Trail effectively ends at Summerley Street and the cyclists have to join trafficy Garrett Lane through Earlsfield and then do an extraordinary loop using Ravensbury Road to rejoin at Acuba Road. Garratt Lane and Penwith Road should have cycle lanes here and be able to join back onto the Wandle Trail via Strathville RoadCycleway:
Problem

142147Photo #142147This is a terrible cycle lane. Apart from at rush hour you can park in it for free for an hour!! Where every other road has a charge. So from 10am onwards (and all day on weekends) it is full of parked cars. There should be no parking except for a small provision for blue badge and shop (only) unloading (ideally before 7am). All the other town centres on this cycle way seems to manage with very limited parking provision, so not sure why Tooting cannot.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
142146Photo #142146There are two popular bus stops here and a narrow pavement. Making it nearly improssible to not bump into people when passing, let alone social distance. Pavement needs to be substantially widened, using the ample space in the Longmead bus turning circle. This should be bus only. It is really not necessary for cars to pass through the turning circleTrack:

142145Photo #142145Franciscan Road is used as a rat run by drivers from Tooting Bec Road to Mitcham Road to avoid traffic on Upper Tooting Road. It would be a great cycle and pedestrian link from Tooting town centre to Tooting Common. It also has two primary schools on it, so restricting traffic would make it much safer for the children.Temporary closure:

138806Photo #138806Bedford Hill SW12 is a direct link between Tooting Bec Common and Balham Town Centre that has no cycle lane for cyclists, including families, to use. Currently it is dangerous to use Bedford Hill to travel between these two very busy hubs (school/shopping/market/park).
Solution - Create pop up cycle lanes on Bedford Hill.
Cycleway:

138802Photo #138802Dangerous underpass under bridge (junction Bedford Hill/Balham Station Road SW12)
The road narrows under the bridge, with tunnel walls enclosing the roadway, leaving zero kerbside space on the road for cyclists.
Even with cyclists staying close to the left side of the road, there is no space for safe overtaking by cars.
Yet cars constantly attempt that dangerous manoeuvre. It is a very dangerous section on an already perilous road (speeding).
Solution - Signage is urgently needed at this location: ROAD NARROWS – DO NOT OVERTAKE CYCLISTS.

136076Photo #136076Due to a construction site, the pavement along this stretch of York Road is so narrow that pedestrians have to walk on the street to pass each other.
