Parking on verges. Create cycle pathway.

Bad pinch point with taxis/ cars and pedestrians existing train station. Widen pavement

Build a cycle superhighway along the wide and unused grass verge of Monmouth Drive all the way from Banners gate to Somerville Rd. For more information please see here: https://peacemakerfoundation.com/2021/01/06/a-proposal-to-build-a-cycle ... [more]

Create off-carriageway cycle tracks & crossings to link A47 Parkway and Lichfield Rd routes. Currently cyclists are expected to use advisory lanes on busy main road - they offer little protection.

Upgrade cycle crossings and add cycle tracks to this busy roundabout

Add separate cycle signals on this junction to help pop-up cycle route that should be made permanent

Pedestrianise Gooch St and Horton Sq in this area, allowing for busy cycle route to pass which is currently plagued with parked cars.

Allow cycles to flow between Corporation St and Newton St.

Allow 2-way cycles on Pershore St so cyclists can connect with pedestrianised Edgbaston St

Use bollards/paint/paving to indicate cycle routes through Victoria Square as it is a key connection between cycle routes.

Good segregated cycle lane ends here. Continue to Five Ways.

Service road that is currently driveways could be segregated cycle track.

Cycle lanes and crossings needed on Trinity Rd between Aston Park and A34 cycle route. This would then be a key cycle link.

Cycle lane needed here to link train station to Ward End cycle route

Needs toucans or cycle signals to allow crossing all arms of roundabout. Cycle track/lane needed to link to existing cycle route on Landor St.

Hole Lane, which is narrow, is used as a rat-run, and this crossroads on a busy road is dangerous and difficult to negotiate on a bike. Close Hole Lane to through motor traffic, and improve the junction to make it cycle-friendly.

There's lots of space here for a badly needed protected cycleway on this busy road.

The park side of Monmouth Drive is absolutely perfect for a very long smooth cycle-super highway (or cycle-scooterhighway). Absolutely zero interference to residents or drivers and reduces congestion in park and gives night time riding opti ... [more]

Needs a proper pedestrian crossing

Barrier on cycle way forces cyclists to dismount. Should be more cycle friendly

Surface on former flagship Rea Valley cycleway very poor, esp with tree roots, between Fordhouse Lane and Hazelwell Rd. Badly in need of resurfacing for years.

Some form of filter is needed here to stop it being used as a rat run. There is a nursery at the corner which is negatively impacted by the pollution and noise of through traffic

Pavement parking is a problem here. Car owners should be fined.

Pavement parking is a problem here. These cars need to be moved.

Surface here by the bridge on the Middlemore Road side just after a sharp left turn is in very poor condition. You could easily come off!

Widen the road by 3 feet, and widen pavement by 6ft narrow road nasty bend,narrow pavement next to school what could go wrong???!!!Make this a safer route to school

Dangerous junction for cyclists trying to cross Golden Hillock Rd. Improve crossing here so cyclists can use

The road narrows to one lane around this bend - evidence that cars don't need both lanes. Much of it is used for parking in the previous stretch. Linking residential to supermarkets (asda quinton) is crucial to getting people routinely usin ... [more]

Steps stop this being a cycleway. Remove steps and improve disabled access too. The other option is to shut Bell Holloway to traffic..as its narrow and subject to frequent fly tipping.

Rat run avoiding Northfield main road and lights. The whole estate from Meadow Brook Rd to Long Mynd Rd and Spiceland Rd are used as a cut thorugh. Speeds exceed 60 mph in a 30 mph and what was a once quiet neighbourhood is now blighted by ... [more]

Total rat run 1950s road very narrow and hilly blind spots. speeding cars and motorbikes 7.5 ton limit but ignored by many large trucks which have to go on the pavement to get by parked cars.

Rat running, excessive speed, heavy lorries on narrow (20ft wide) 1950 designed estate roads. Barely wide enough for 2cars to safely pass. Add in on road parking(pavement!!) and it is unsafe. Close the road to through traffic and improve ai ... [more]

Parking on both sides narrows carriageway on this route into harborne..the dangers are obvious

Pavements are narrow

A441 between Stirchley and Selly Park is easily wide enough to have a cycleway. The removal of extra lanes on both sides and of on-street parking would actually make things much safer for motorists, too.

Pavement along Mulberry Road very dangerous with cracked slabs, for pedestrians

2 Way City Centre Loop. Around the pedestrianised centre. To manage cycle flows into and around or through the city centre better. I have a design but cannot put a polygon on your system "Widen My Path" @James_Martin001

Pavement is seriously blocked by inconsiderate car owners. Existing parking laws should be enforced.

Tram tracks are horrifically dangerous when cycling. The system is seriously flawed. A rethink is needed urgently!

Pavement here is permanently blocked with parked cars. It needs clearing.

Inconsiderate drivers block the pavement here. They should show more respect to the local community.

Close one end of this street to prevent car racing

Get rid of cars completely on the back streets of Kings Heath - No one adheres to 20 mph.

Pavements in Selly Oak are dangerous and difficult to walk on due to uneven slabs, damaged by motor vehicles.

Please stop cars parking on the pavement. Cars frequently park 'full on' the pavement, particularly during evenings, sometimes totally blocking it.

With the proposed closure of School Road, traffic will be forced down Cotton Lane. Cotton Lane has a single pavement between school road and number 15. Next to number 15 is a blind corner. Children and families regularly cross the road h ... [more]

Is Temple Street a shared space or not? it's just quite naff at the moment and there's a lot of unused car parking. Remove it all, repave it and pedestrianise it properly, planting new trees as far as Bull Street

New route here

New route needed

There could be a route developed here from Brook Road to the Worcester and Birmingham Canal. This would enable a vast population to avoid heavy traffic routes into the city centre. Requires bridge or subway over railway line, but would save ... [more]

No pavement at all either side of this road as it enters on to Wake Green Road. Some marking for pedestrians needed as road is dangerous with parking obscuring the view of traffic, and traffic turning into the road at speed.

Pedestrian crossing/lights needed here. Cars tend to speed across this junction and it's very scary to cross as a pedestrian. Someone will get seriously hurt here.

Bollards need to be installed due to constant double parking on yellow lines, blocking both sides of the road and pavement and the cycle path.

This is a busy route serving 3 primary schools and 2 main shopping areas (Swan Centre and Yew Tree). Footpaths are quite wide here and could accommodate traffic free cycle route. This would also give access to the Cole Valley cycle route th ... [more]

Remove the parking and vehicle access here (it's a dead end anyway) and make this a nice boulevard looking out over the pool

Put a bridge across th railway here at th end of Highbury rd, lettin pedestrians and cyclists gain access to th park, an providing a through route for cyclists going on to other cycle routes, away from the narrow route of dads lane, pron to ... [more]

The Raddlebarn/Heely/Umberslade road junction has too high a volume of traffic, making it hazardous to cyclists and those crossing the road. Restricting vehicle movements at this junction may help.

Why is Gibbins Road a through route for motor traffic? It runs parallel to the A38, and is between a park and a residential area!

As a temporary measure pending extension of the route, need some safe provision for southbound cyclists to join the segregated cycleway.

Traffic lights do not appear to respond to cyclists on the cycleway?

Motorists notoriously bad at observing the stop line here, and drive onto the cycleway without checking for approaching cyclists. Could easily close this junction to motor traffic entirely, there's no need for Sir Harry's Road to be a thro ... [more]

Shared cycle/pavement, unable to socially distance as both are too narroe

Shared cycle lanes far too narrow, need dedicated cycle lanes

Wilful habitual speeding by large loud excessively high powered cars limits who can safely use this RD, this prevents safe cycling and walking, and fear of reckless driving also inhibits Normal social interaction between the residents, time ... [more]

This RD is used as a rat run by cars avoiding avenue Rd and th High St, creating intolerable levels of traffic(noise, pollution) for a residential back street

Narrow pavement, with 3 bus stops and a guard rail on the outside mean that this is a busy place and allows little space between people walking along and waiting for buses

Parked cars on dual carriageway hinder safe cycling. Cycle Lane needed to allow connection between bournbrook cycle path and Harborne

Cycle Lane suddenly runs out and cyclists have to merge with dual carriage way at a bus stop!! Not at all safe

Using a one way system would massively improve the safety of everyone using this road. Closing this junction is the solution to a potentially bigger problem emerging.

Motorists travel far too fast through this junction. Closing it would reduce opportunities to race. It's for everyone's safety.

This is an extremely busy and dangerous junction. The speed at which vehicles travel increases the already existing dangers to other motorists and pedestrians. Closing this junction would not only improve the safety of motorists and residen ... [more]

Remove the hatching in the centre of the road and replace with a cycle lane

This needs to be a pedestrian crossing controlled by lights

Pinch point...Footpath narrows a lot. Redesign junction to give space to pedestrians and cyclists. It has been forgotten about for years as it is on the edge of 2 council areas.

Very narrow pathway and people cannot social distance here. Make path one way until a proper solution can be found.

The pedestrian lights here have a long delay and give precedence to cars. Shorten the time before they stop traffic and give pedestrians priority
