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

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]

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

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

Cut-through for bikes at the start of a short stretch of segregated bike lane.

This crossing should be adapted for cycling too.

Good cycle contraflow and dropped kerb access to Little Britain

Little Britain - shared space for pedestrians and cyclists (slightly obstructed at the moment)

Perhaps the Keep Clear markings are not needed now that only cyclists are allowed to come through the narrow section.

Motor Vehicles Only a block from Liverpool Street station, but no crossing off the main road.
