Attractive cycle stands at the rear entry to The Orchard tea garden

Attractive cycle parking at The Orchard tea garden - slightly further from the action than it was, I think.

Still no path connection from the Bredisholm Road M73 bridge to Calderbank Road, and no evidence one is going to be provided. A detour via the unsealed path next to the railway line is thus necessary.

A barrier across the motorway path, with the inevitable evidence of people going around it via the grass. Several other sets of barriers have gone in elsewhere on this path.

The bridge over the A8 and M8 at the Showcase.

The path from Viewfield Road to the M8/A8 footbridge. The footbridge has a double-back ramp when it could have come straight down in this direction, avoiding wasting the time of people walking and cycling.

The path to the A8/M8 footbridge at Viewfield Road.

No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

A newly installed dropped kerb at the east end of Henderson Street, but the corresponding dropped kerb in Napiershall Street has an occupied marked parking bay across it.

Cycle hangar in Henderson Street, and newly installed dropped kerbs for pedestrians crossing.

In an almost empty street (see #183811), one of the few vehicles parked is blocking the dropped kerb for Garriochmill Way. A build-out is required, as well as removing the parking bay markings.

No Cycling near the Little Mermaid (tourist-free in fact during the pandemic) - the sign reads 'Be Considerate, Wheel Your Bike'. [The time trial on Day 1 of the 2022 Tour de France actually came right through here.]

  • Icon 183776 Very narrow path connects both villages to the village shop. The hedge is often too overgrown and it’s a busy dangerous road. If it was wide enough for a twin pushchair we would be able to walk to the shop and also better for mobility scooters and disabilities etc Popular route for runners and cyclists also.
  • Icon 183775 Unsafe for walkers when the road is busy. Inter visibility is very poor. Anxious drivers do not notice pedestrians
  • Icon 183774 20mph speed limits to enable active travel of all types.
  • Icon 183773 Popular tourist attraction needs a pedestrian crossing and a 20 mph speed limit.
  • Icon 183761 Motorists and cyclists can enter from five directions. This busy crossing could be made safer with clear markings indicating where pedestrians and cyclists should cross. Pedestrians, often with children, come to and from the popular Bede Park. There are also electric scooters, roller-skaters, skateboarders, and delivery cyclists. On the pavement outside the Western Pub there are stands for the electric hire bikes. Motorists are sometimes tempted to speed up or down the Wilberforce Road hill. It would be great to have measures to slow motorists down for this junction.
  • Icon 183734 Add Santander bikeshare near here please
