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]

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.

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

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.

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]

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

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

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

Remove barriers to prevent bottleneck if people queuing to get by

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.

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

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

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.

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

Cycle routes along London Road should be protected

Cycle routes along Wenlock Rd are not protected

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

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.

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

Improve cycling over the Welsh Bridge

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

Remove barriers at either end of the bridge to allow a free flow of pedestrians and cyclists (bunching stops social distancing)

Remove barriers at either end of the bridge to allow a free flow of pedestrians and cyclists (bunching stops social distancing)

Usually cars parked down one side of the street. Traffic both ways squeezing through, dangerous for cyclists.

Usually cars parked down one side of the street. Traffic both ways squeezing through, dangerous for cyclists.

Usually cars parked down one side of the street. Traffic both ways squeezing through, dangerous for cyclists. Not room on pavement to extend. Could do with being one way toad between Mount Service Station and Frankwell Island.

Walkers and cyclists have no safe way to get into Oswestry from Whittington and Park Hall. Cycle path ends at the very busy A483 roundabout. Only very confident and competent cyclists dare navigate said roundabout due to massive volume of t ... [more]

Disused railway line. Convert to segregated cycleway to Gobowen. Improves access to train station and becomes a more direct route.

Cycle way is not joined up; and is not protected

Protected cycleway needed

No cycle lanes over the English Bridge. The are 3 traffic lanes, and one could be reallocated to cycles

Shared path should be a footpath only. One of the 3 traffic lanes should be reallocated for use by cycles

No protection of cycle way

Remove barriers that prevent pushchairs, wheelchairs, adapted bikes getting across the bridge.

No protection of cycleway along the full length of Abbey Foregate

No protection of cycleway

No safe cycle route on roundabout - there is plenty of spare tarmac to make one

Shared use in Shrewsbury. Its on both sides of the road here, for a short section.

Cycle route along the river Severn, on the Frankwell side in Shrewsbury.

Shared-use path (NCN route 81) crossing the road just a short distance from the toucan crossings at the A41 junction.

Toucan crossings on all sides of the A41 Cosford junction

A shame the shared-use couldn't be extended beyond the junction.

Shared-use only around the A41 junction in Cosford

Give Way line at pole of toucan crossing - is this really necessary?

Cyclists being encouraged to use the shared-use path purely to bypass traffic lights.
