Street regularly used as a rat run and can be very very hard for pedestrians to cross. Have seen many near misses

Pavements on Moorgate are much to narrow for the volumes of people

Please remove the raised brick crossings here and elsewhere in the square mile - these are uncomfortable and dangerous for cyclists, particularly in the wet.

My employer is moving us to a office in September that has no cycle parking facilities on Fenchurch Ave. I’ve had a bike stolen in the past and the lack of secure parking will stop me cycling in.

Better linkage of CS1 and CS7 needed - current quietway is indirect and poorly signed

Multi-phase traffic light here means very long wait for cyclist/pedestrian lights, because of the delay, cyclists and pedestrians often ignore the lights, creating danger for themselves and other road users. Perhaps a re-design of the li ... [more]

Allow bikes heading south here to turn right onto cycle way

There is a cycle way crossing across the Embankment. Unfortunately due to cycleway design, there is a green light shown to cyclists, immediately prior to crossing. The light controlling crossing cannot be seen. Too many cyclists take previo ... [more]

Close lots of roads during rush our times. Allow buses and delivery vehicles and people with disabilities to drive. People can cycle, walk or take public transport on the much safer roads.

Bank junction and routes through the city could be improved through a continuous segregated cycle path

This is where the Embankment cycle way goes wrong. It is great (although now too narrow when busy) between Parliament Sq and Blackfriars but east of there the cycle way is north of the busy road which is bad for cars and bad for cyclists. T ... [more]

Two-way cycle track is far too narrow for volumes of cyclists using it at peak times. Going head-to-head with a throng of oncoming cyclists from the opposite direction is really unpleasant and scary.

Too many buses, lots of traffic. no cycle lanes.

Cycle path from Monument up to Shoreditch

When will this endless construction be finished? Is there a fine for overrunning? Pedestrians frequently seen in the cycle lane in the underpass, where there is no space for them, because of this unfinished mess.

This should be a great connection between CS3 and CS7. Right now they cross, but turning from one to the other is not efficient. Worst is CS3 westbound to CS7 southbound which forces you to turn right and Uturn across multiple traffic light ... [more]

Turn for bikes is too narrow for how busy this crossing is

Gym, yoga studio in plough court, lots of bicycles chained to lamp post etc in this area

This would be a good opportunity for employers and patients/customers

Cycle lane obstruction

Lots of space here and no cycle parking anywhere nearby. Real cycle parking would encourage people not to lock to private fences.

There is a large gym on Cannon Street opposite the station here and nowhere close to park your bike when you need to be in and out in a hurry and back to work

Cycle parking needed here.

Needed: cycle parking for non TfL hire scheme bicycles (there is a TfL docking station here). Nearby stands are always full.

Behold! The most inexplicable Cyclists Dismount sign yet. The road is only narrowed here so someone can park their Mercedes. https://t.co/wELl3Up8tf

Hello? Security barriers on the cycleway but not the main carriageway? Run that by me again....

Currently there are 6 Sheffield stands on Carmelite Street. However is it not atypical for these to have 4 bikes tied up at one time, and this number grows exponentially in the summer when the whole of the building is surrounded by bikes ti ... [more]

There are never enough bike racks in this part of the City. There is plenty of Soace in Devonshire Sq area for more

Barts Hospital badly needs cycle stands in the central square, which has been cleared of vehicles.

"Why oh why won't they use the cycleways provided???" https://t.co/4qmjYrGqMN

I work near Monument station for Lloyd's Bank and we are all moving to 10 Gresham St by end of the year. 20 of us currently park in our office car park but this won't be available in our new office. The bike racks are always full so it wou ... [more]

Confusing signage on Throgmorton Street - is It a pedestrian zone or is open to cycles with motor vehicles in one direction?

White van in the New Bridge Street cycle lanes. #classic via Instagram ift.tt/2bez09J

These cycle stands are always full, more stands are needed on both sides of the street

There are many offices in this area and very little space to lock bikes - the nearest spaces are on Bouverie street and along the embankment, and they are both often full. Many bikes locked to inappropriate street furniture - lampposts and ... [more]

Lots of cycle parking needed here

Cars blocking link to East-West Cycle Superhighway

There are some cycle stands but they are frequently full.

Beware of these at Aldgate... they scared the crap out of me the other day. If you hit one, you're going to be off. https://t.co/E3smhT1GUW Ed: The offending items are known as Orcas.

Couldn't find any stands anywhere in St Paul's churchyard one night last week. Stands needed on Maria lane too.

This is way oversubscribed. Up to 8 bikes trying to use stands designed for a maximum of 4. A on-street car parking space should be given up for this - much more efficient use of space.

10 - 15 spaces needed

Ther is almost no public cycle parking available in the City apart from on London Wall. Some urgently needd near Minster Court.

Contraflow cycle lane past a No Entry sign without an Except Cycles sign - whoops.

There is nowhere suitable to park bikes here outside Latham and Watkins, 99 Bishopgate. There's a huge public pavement there, loads of space, and a big boris bike rack. How about some provisionfor the thousands of workers who cycle nearby.

There seems to be no parking in the area around Cannon Street Station

Thsi office building has no cycle spaces free for new staff and Appold Street spaces are always full by 9am. The temporary stand provided by Hackney Coucil on Worship St is oversubscribed. The landlords of the offices in this area need to p ... [more]

There is almost no cycle parking available around Moorgate. The little there is on London Wall is over-crowded and not secure enough.

This is where I had my accident! I went into the gap & went over my handlebars

Abolish the horrible Gyratory north of St. Pauls. Or at least install a contraflow cycle lane for eastbound cyclists. The turning movements required at present are dangerous as they put cyclists in conflict with motorists.

Northbound cycle only signal phase from Queen Street plaza crossing Queen Victoria Street. The signal only operates if button is pushed. If the plaza has a lot of pedestrian traffic it is nearly impossible to get to the intersection and p ... [more]

Three motor vehicle lanes at this intersection leaving little to no room to pass cars stopped at the light in order to get to the advance stop line. Continue the protected cycle lane from Southwark Bridge to the intersection with Upper Tha ... [more]

Ban left turns from King William Street (London Bridge Approach) onto Monument Street. Dangerous left hook turn conflict with cyclists and huge conflict with large pedestrian flow.

Three motor vehicle lanes in each direction on London Bridge, despite one lane (each way) streets at either end. Remove a lane in each direction for a protected cycle track and widened footpath (they are like sardines in the morning on the ... [more]

Not a cycling issue, but there is no pedestrian signal to cross King William Street. And thus no warning for when traffic is about to start moving. Very dangerous situation, as there is loads of pedestrian traffic at this intersection.

Ban left turns from King William Street to Lombard Street. Foot traffic here is huge in the morning, and turn conflicts are ripe! Plus, backed up turning vehicles block free flow of southbound cyclists and cause left hook turn conflicts.

There is no legal northbound route from Coleman St. to Fore Street. Space for a route exists in the center median of London Wall. All that would need to be installed is a curb cut off the centre median at Fore Street Avenue. Also, making ... [more]

Upper Thames Street is a very busy, TfL controlled road in the City of London. Following recent works, an on-carriageway cycle lane was repainted much narrower than it used to be. Narrow cycle lanes are worse than useless: they encourage pe ... [more]

Took me 10 minutes last night to find parking near St Pauls!

Bikes on a ledge indicate lack of secure, easily-accessible cycle parking

As many stands as possible.

The number of existing stands is insufficient for the amount of bikes in the ares

Always a lack of storage around here. Perhaps a secure facility such as this one (www.technology4change.com/page.jsp?id=120) could be incorportaed into the re-development of St Botolph's, currently proposed by LBC.

Not much space for cyclists.

Dangerous junction for cyclists.

Dangerous junction for cyclists.

middle street and adjoining alleyways have no stands at all, and very few other structures to lock a bike to.

The Broadgate complex was definitely not built to be permeable for cycling - a ramp in to Liverpool Street station would be useful.

Vehicles going left onto Victoria Embankment cut up cyclists going straight ahead (East towards the underpass). Very fast and dangersous junction

There's a bike lane and advanced stop box for bikes turning right from Farringdon Road onto the Embankment. That's where the bike provision stops. The on-ramp starts off wide enough for a bike and a car/coach/HGV to pass side by side, and t ... [more]

Out Side the Old Bailey so people doing Jury service can cycle to court.

Cycle parking needed at Monument. Perhaps just use the yellow-lined area just to the right of this picture and convert that to on-street cycle parking.

Southwark Bridge is on a cycle superhighway, which is also shared with tipper trucks. Although there are dedicated cycle lights, they go green at the same time as the main lights going north. At least please use the exisitng lights to giv ... [more]

If you want to turn right into the shared pedestrian/cycle area to get down to Southwark bridge you're stuck between streams of traffic. Maybe a dedicated cycle lane running right down from Cheapside would work. And sort out the fact that y ... [more]

London Bridge in both directions is difficult. The bus lane going north means you have to pull out into the traffic while going uphill. At the north end crossing to the right lane to turn right can be dangerous as motorised trafic particula ... [more]

There's a segregated cycle lane along the north side of Goodman's Yard. I've never been able to work out what it's for as it doesn't seem to go anywhere. Never seen anyone in it. This whole double gyratory is a mess. Sort it out!

Going west at this junction is bad with traffic cutting across into New Fetter Lane. Poor lane markings make this confusing for all and makes problem worse.
