Bad junction

This short but often busy stretch of A49 between turnoffs to Leebotwood Church and to Cardington, is an unavoidable but necessary link for cyclists between quieter lanes. A little-used pavement runs along the east side, and could provide a ... [more]

Stop cars & coaches for school drop off & pick up so children to primary & secondary school can walk &/or cycle to school & back more safely. Maybe divert school coaches/traffic to B4397 & have a wide walking path from coach park to & from ... [more]

Pavements too narrow and cars parked. Remove car parking and introduce one way system. This will also reduce pollution.

Cars parked in road and pavement too narrow.

The cycle 'lane' on the side of London Rd is lethal. Making London Rd one way into town and Wenlock Rd one way out of town would allow space for dedicated cycle lanes on both roads

Install new cycle route linking Ironbridge and Shrewsbury, using the former rail line

There was at one time a proposal to allow cycle access to the station through this development, which was never implemented. Now would be a good time to resurrect it!

Safety at this junction would be immediately improved by putting the pedestrian lights on a timer, enabling traffic from both sides of Upper Road to exit safely even when there are no pedestrians.

Footpath and cycleway needed to access the retail park from Oteley Road. Many pedestrians and cyclists short-cut across the grass, which becomes very muddy in autumn/winter. The opportunity to fix this was missed in redevelopment of the Meo ... [more]

Hedge seriously overgrown. Pavement could be widened by tarmacing grassy verge to allow SD2m

Hedge seriously overgrown 2mSD not possible

Cycle lane along this fast straight road.

The by-pass is busy and very fast due to two lanes on the uphill direction. Cycle lane desperately required.

Busy road with lots of speeding vehicles needs a cycle lane.

Road here is very busy and dangerous for cyclists. This road should be closed to traffic making vehicles use the by-pass

Safe crossing facility to allow cyclists and pedestrians to cross the roundabout safely

Can’t get over the island safely. Traffic lights or some form of safe crossing provision

A much used off road cycleway from Minsterley ends here and cyclists have to cross the A488 near where the 30MPH limit starts for Pontesbury. Cars are mostly much faster than that here. There is a good wide footway past Ashford drive which ... [more]

The cycleway/footway along the A5112 needs maintenance. Cutting back vegetation and repairing the surface.

Signage to show where access to " old canal cycle path" is, down private Pimley Lane. This could avoid dangerous crossing of A49 further down Sundorne Road.

This cycle path is often blocked by parked cars, signage is required.

No signage to indicate where the cyclpath is , so not used .

Extend Cycleway to Battlefield Island, the Cyclway ends here at present.

Major Shropshire tourist location, YET a 40mph speed limit on a narrow road with car parking alongside is dangerous should be 30mph maximum

Part of B5068 is on the National cycle route. A national speed limit on this section is NOT appropriate

Pavement not wide enough and ita runs out on one side by the pub. No crossing facility either

Improve Stanton Road to make safer for cyclists, cycle lane markers

Pavement needs to be widened slightly to accommodate both pedestrians and cyclists in safety. I cycle every day up this hill and I always have to dismount and get right into the kerb way when big Lorries approach and the many tractors that ... [more]

Install a cycleway linking the Marshbrook turning to the Acton Scott turning approx 100m south to enable cyclists to traverse the A49 safely as the current road design is extremely dangerous.

There is an very good farm shop to the north of Leebotwood however the pavement runs out approximately 1/4 mile before the shop. The verge is wide enough to accommodate a footway so please prioritise these works.

The problem is an excellent cycleway leads from Shrewsbury to Bayston Hill however to join up with the villages to the south you are forced on to the A49 until the Condover turning after which it is possible to take a circuitous route down ... [more]

Needs pedestrian crossing

A pavement/combined pavement and cyclepath between Sundorne and Haughmond Hill would create a much safer means of travel for recreation. Haughmond Hill, Haughmond Abbey and surrounding countryside offer great opportunities for people to be ... [more]

Narrow section should be one way or filtered two way for walking, cycling, buses, emergency vehicles.

A protected cycleway required on east side between roundabout and junction with Acton Burnell road

Filtered closure of Bellevue/Hereford on top of rail bridge except for walking, cycling, buses, emergency vehicles

A second footbridge needed to prevent congestion. Long term a very wide bridge with cycling along the middle

Close this junction to cars

This section to be two way for cycling

Two way cycleway

Restrict carriageway width to create wider shared foot/cycle route from Boscobel to Whitemere.

Move existing blue signpost to other end of Whitemere Road

Filtered for access on foot and cycle to create a safer route.

Existing refuge to be upgraded to a pedestrian crossing with Belisha beacons. A key cycle route between Sundorne and town.

This section of old canal path to Telford Way needs widening and should be given a smooth surface (tarmac or smooth aggregate). Solar lighting would be good for winter commuting from Sundorne.

Downhill cycle lane required along Castle Street/Castle Gates

Widen existing painted cycle lanes and add protection

Filtered access for walking, cycling, buses to exclude through car traffic to create a quiet zone safe for users of every age

Filtered access for walking, cycling, buses to prevent through car traffic to make a quiet zone safe for others to use

Remove barriers to prevent bottleneck if people queuing to get by

Pig Trough alley gives access to three residences. The alley is 1.2m wide for much of its length, and bounded by high walls.

Pig Trough alley is 1.2m wide long alley with high walls. A one way route to Flash Gardens would enable social distancing to be maintained.

Pig Trough alley way gives access to three houses but is also a through route 1.2m wide for most of its length. It is bordered by high walls.

Steps prevent pushchair and mobility aided access to town from castlefields. Shared path needed through castle grounds

By closing to vehicles (except buses), here, Barker St and Castle St, the entire centre of Shrewsbury becomes a dead end to motorists. Residents and deliveries have to arrive and leave via Wyle Cop.

Cambria Avenue is a rat run, but also a vital walking/cycling route to two schools. By closing it to traffic here, the roads will be safer, whilst not removing anyone's vehicle access.

Cambria Avenue is a rat run as well as being a well-used route to school for two schools. Blocking the road to vehicles at this point will stop through traffic without removing anyone's vehicle access.

An existing tunnel under the A5 connecting council-owned land on either side could be a much-needed safe crossing place.

Only one narrow pavement along busy A road

Close drinkwater street (Reopen Mount Street) to make Frankwell roundabout into a public square

Belle Vue road and Longden road should be made one way to allow for pavement widening and cycle lanes

Very narrow pavement, pedestrian route to the river for children and dog walkers, two way traffic when the road is too narrow to take it and a blind bend. Cars go too fast too.

Footpath far too narrow two people cannot pass without stepping into the carriageway Solution make Kingsland Road from Luciefeld Road to Longden Road one way and widen footway

Remove on street parking to enable wider pavements for social distancing

Ensure regular maintenance & clearing of footway. Accumulated debris & vegetation makes footway unsafe given frequency, speed and proximity of traffic (particularly HGV)

Footpath needed to access train station Im shifnal

Lack of safe crossing point on Copthorne Road. Need more pelican crossings.

Road very narrow here. A squeeze for 2 cars so dangerous for cyclists. Need traffic calming to reduce speed of cars and make it safer for cyclists.

Existing footway converted & widened where necessary to shared footway/cycleway to give protection from hostile traffic environment of A41. With commensurate reduction in speed limit to <50mph along this section of road.

Private traffic does not need to access Roushill and Mardol

Private traffic does not need to access Roushill and Mardol

Consider using a bus gate at the end of Copthorne Rd so that private commuter traffic stays on the A road

Additional cycle space and speed reduction. Cars speed up once speed camera passed

Stop ratrunning

Stop ratrunning

Cycle routes along London Road should be protected

Cycle routes along Wenlock Rd are not protected

Traffic through the middle of the town is unnecessary and dangerous for distancing

Cycle routes at junction are not appropriate - you get "thrown" into the road

Needs chicanes on road to enforce speed limit, lorry ban except for local firms and access ( use existing bypass), alternate give way including wider pavement. No speed humps. No extra road building which will destroy both landscape and vil ... [more]

This is a main route for NHS workers to get to Royal Shrewsbury, a cycle path will help doctors and nurses to cycle to work and avoid paying the horrible parking fees.

This is very narrow and pedestrians passing would need to walk into a main trunk road.

Fast road cars don’t slow ! Path to narrow , cycle lane for safety as its on a cycle route

By cutting back the hedgerow!

Barrier on footpath prevents wheelchairs etc.

Improve cycling over the Welsh Bridge

Too narrow for pedestrians and cars

Too narrow for pedestrians and cars.

Too narrow. No need for cars to drive through here.

We are very happy the council will be making a cycle lane and one way traffic here, but we want to be assured of pavement modifications too! Very narrow pavement! Thank you 😊

Make the High Street/Shoplatch Area pedestrianised again during most of the day. Open for loading before 9am perhaps? Encourage cafes to have outside areas.

Improve cycle access from the Quarry and Welsh Bridge to the cycle parking areas around Bellstone and the Market Hall. Current junction is dangerous for cyclists.

As the main route to and from Royal Shrewsbury hospital a safe cycle way is essential. This would also provide a link onto NCN81 and the new route into town. A 20mph speed limit would also help.

The cyclepath abruptly ends and cyclists are expected to cross the road and ride on the main roadway through the village (scary), or cycle on the path (illegal)

There is no safe way for cyclists to get from the A5064 to the B4380
