Slightly pointless bit of cycleway, as it goes behind the bus stop then returns the rider to the road

Segregated cycle lanes needed on Putney Hill. Currently dangerous cycling here especially uphill in the unprotected narrow cycle lane.

Gate here is too narrow for cyclists and leads cyclists directly onto a drain cover on the eastern side of the road.

Allow two way cycling on Weimar Street.

Allow right turn for cyclists onto A205 from Gwendolyn Avenue.

Where can we store our bikes safely? There's only space to park cars - should be encouraging greener transport methods especially during covid

Would be great to have a bike hangar around here as there is no provision for bike storage in many flats and no nearby storage options

Lots of residential property but no biking space at all in the 3 miles

So many bikes, so little space

CS7 Balham High Road this am. ⁦@TfL⁩ ⁦@MikeyCycling⁩ https://t.co/97d6COfvK8

A block of traffic turning into Elmbourne Road as it is a rat run to avoid the traffic lights at tooting bec, it is particularly busy when children are walking to and from school

This close is marked "Cycling forbidden"; but this is foolish as cars and even motor cycles can drive into it. "Pedestrian priority" would be sufficient.

Could have two-way cycling which would provide quiet direct route avoiding Upper Richmond Road, improving access to Putney High Street, local schools parks for children and adults alike

At about this point heading east, the road narrows and the painted cycle path disappears at the point it's needed most. Make it continuous!

Temporary 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. Why not close the road to cars (this has been done before during repairs ... [more]

Low traffic neighbourhood

The cycle path is in desperate need of re-surfacing and widening. It's currently full of holes, cracks and dips and is very dangerous. Additionally the path is too narrow and encourages close passes by motorists

Outside Tooting primary the crossing the road is dangerous, cars rat running and speeding past, Also children breathing in traffic fumes, restrictions needed on this road as there is two primary schools.

People spilling out into the road from the market, Would be lovely to have a square here with some greenery. It does feel necessary for cars to dominate this area

The 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 shou ... [more]

This 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 excep ... [more]

There 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 ... [more]

Franciscan 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 ... [more]

Narrow section with parked cars between Wimbledon Road and Rogers Road in southerly direction. Protected cycleway needed or cycle on pavement which is wide enough for shared use here.

Traffic islands and parked cars along length of Blackshaw Road in both directions are hazardous for cyclists who have to keep pulling out in front of cars. Protected cycleway needed in both directions

Poorly designed cycleway. As cars come through chicane they go into cycleway. Suggest either allow cyclists on pavement or better still allow them to use path through Garrett Green.

Traffic speed is far too high. Traffic calming/speed cameras needed

Put on-lane cycle way into pavement to segregate it near school

No dropped kerb across the exit of the petrol station - unnecessarily difficult for wheelchairs and buggies

Modal filter (walking/cycling only) to prevent rat running from B229

Half a dozen bikes locked to street lamps. risk of obstructing footpath. road with many flats on it. council should help residents have somewhere to secure their bikes. Bike Hangar?

I live in Beckenham but work in Chiswick and there are insufficient safe routes for cycling and which avoid the dreaded South Circular A205. A SE to West London route would be great. I know many others like me who have this journey.

1 - there are barriers either side of the bridge which generate queues and disrupt social distancing 2 - cyclists must dismount, even at quiet times (e.g. early morning commute). allow cycling!

Stop traffic using Winfrith/Vanderbilt as a short-cut

Garrett Lane is very busy and high speed - needs protection for cyclists

Bedford 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 ( ... [more]

Dangerous 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 ... [more]

Is a pedestrian pathway, but is constantly used as a cycle lane as it is the fastest way through. Would really benefit having a cycle and pedestrian path.

Due 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. Closing the bus lane to traffic would provide safe space for social distancing. Given that ... [more]

Get rid of these absurd 3 lane motorways which go nowhere and install cycleways!

Very dangerous for bikes! Merging traffic and v difficult safely to turn left onto Trinity Road

Very dangerous for bikes! Merging traffic and no safe haven.

Poorly designed cycle lane. Usually impossible to use because cars are parked on the far side, going east. So always have to pull out to use the part of road design for cars

Can we have a proper segregated cycle way between routing Broadway and the tooting national rail station? The tarmac is very rutted and full of parked cars as things stand

I've been but twice here, so really think we need segregated cycle lanes please!!!

Pavement overcrowded with bus stop, queue for Sainsburys and passing pedestrians all within narrow pavement. Preferred option: suspend parking in the bay nearest to Sainsburys. Possible option: extend pavement by blocking off traffic lane i ... [more]

Low traffic neighbourhood

Cycleway along Burntwood Lane is not continuous, is too narrow, and is configured to encourage cars to drive in cycle lanes as they swerve around the bollards. Needs a proper segregated cycle lane.

Modal filter to encourage people to walk and cycle to the park, and block through traffic. No buses go beyond this point currently.

Walkway blocked by a railings, so cyclists have to get off their bike, and people pushing prams have to squeeze them through

Add segregated cycle lane

Pedestrian crossing needed here. Huge amount of walkers and cyclists try to cross this road but without any crossing.

Battersea Church Road and Westbridge Road used as a rat-run. A bus gate at Battersea Square would allow people to cycle and walk safely through this area, relieving pressure on the Thames Path too.

Narrow pavement outside school & by bus stop needs to be widened.

Painted cycle lane stops at the end of Buckhold Rd as road narrows. Cycle lane should be improved and continued.

Space for cycling needed to separate bikes from fast-moving traffic. The road is wide with a central strip of cross-hatching so could easily accommodate a segregated bike lane.

Roadwork signage blocks the cycle path here. Please remove it.

Gate on the road here has cycle passing slots that are dangerously narrow. Needs replacing.

A chained gateway has been erected (2019) at the entrance to the road from Lower Common South, apparently designed to prevent cycling.

Stop motor traffic using Penwith as through-route

This is a very dangerous road for cyclists. The current cycle path is terrible and cuts across several drives which makes it dangerous. Drivers do intentional close passes. Please install a better cycle lane. Closing the road to through tra ... [more]

There is a painted cycle lane but cars often drive in it and it is very dangerous. Put a kerb or physical barrier to separate the bikes from the cars. Both directions.

The route to the Priory Lane should be closed, cars use this as a short cut. There is a better, wider main toad they can use. This would free up the Priory Lane for walkers and cyclists, where the cycle path on the pavement is not adequate ... [more]

This road is heavily used by both cyclists and pedestrians. The cycle path on the pavement doesn’t leave enough space to socially distance. Cars use this road as a cut through to avoid the triangle route up into the main road.

There is a painted cycle lane but cars often drive in it and it is very dangerous. Put a kerb or physical barrier to separate the bikes from the cars. Both directions.

Road is to narrow to accommodate cars, bikes and buses in both directions. Perhaps Putney High Street could have cycle lane plus contraflow or one way for cars.

Protected cycle lanes needed right along Nine Elms Lane. There are intermittent temporary facilities, but this whole road section needs permanent protected cycle lanes,

Protected cycleway needed on unnecessarily wide section of road (drivers often race along this).

40mph dual carriageway segregates Wimbledon common from Putney Heath. Reduce to 1 lane each way (as further along the road), make 20mph and add multiple crossing points

Why is there a 40mph dual carriageway through the Common? Pointless as it narrows to 1 lane each way anyway at the end. Narrow the road to 1 lane each way and cover the underpass with more green space above!

Plenty of room for a good quality cycle way and possibly delivery bays only - multiple alternative routes and a VERY busy street with common users crossing to use shops and facilities

The pavements serve several supermarkets and other food stores and are very narrow - as well as providing numerous bus stops

Cycle path often blocks by parked cars. Add a double yellow to prevent.

Cycle cut through to Maysoule Rd is often blocked by parked cars. Add double yellow

Cars park on pavement, leaving insufficient space for distancing

Could have two-way cycling which would provide quiet direct route avoiding Upper Richmond Road, improving access to Putney High Street, local schools parks for children and adults alike

Entire length of Roehampton Lane needs a cycle lane - connects hospital, multiple schools, train station traffic multiple lanes and fast moving - wide enough for cycle lane

Heavy traffic as cut through

Safe cycle path for a few metres needed to link up bits of Thames Path either side of Heliport/Crowne Plaza. Road is accident hotspot, pavement is crowded with pedestrians.

Pavement too narrow for social distancing, high pedestrian traffic area

Cycle path frequently blocked by parked cars - double yellow lines needed.

Pavement is dangerously narrow and cars go too fast. Could be made one-way along with Westbridge Road, making cars go the same route as 170 bus.

My sister was rear ended on her bike by truck climbing the hill. Put in a wider cycle lane on the uphill side at least.

Beechcroft Road runs parallel to A214 Trinity Road, a busy through route between Fulham/Chelsea and Wandsworth/Tooting/ Streatham. Drivers wishing to avoid long lines of traffic on Trinity Road often use the parallel route. However it is a ... [more]

Add segregated cycle lanes to A3 between Robin Hood and Tibbet's Corner providing a link from Kingston towards the city. The current shared pavements are dangerous

Fawe Park Road is used as a cut through with few vehicles observing the 20mph limit. The area in front of Brandelhow school would benefit from traffic calming (such as planters?) to stop it being used as a thoroughfare and reduce speed of c ... [more]

Pavements are really narrow and there's always a lot of traffic.
