131817Photo #131817Tennal Road is used as a car park on one side of the road. This creates a dangerous situation for cyclists since the doors of parked cars can open at any time into the streets.

131806Photo #131806Ridgacre Road has two lanes in each direction, but the outer one is constantly used to park cars. Since the traffic clearly doesn't need two lanes, I urge you to transform one into a bicycle lane (initially pop-up) with a physical barrier, so cars don't park/drive on it. I would suggest transforming the inner lane, since currently cars park on the outer lane.Cycleway:

131703Photo #131703It is hard for cyclists to simply cross to the other side of the Jacket road here. The central reservation is too narrow, so it requires either a dart across when no traffic coming or joining fast moving traffic, crossing to far lane to turn right at lights and then back around.Cycleway:

131260Photo #131260Stonehouse Lane is a busy road that many drivers/ buses close pass cyclists on - it provides a link from Bartley Green/ Woodgate to Birmingham and a link to Hillcrest School - there are huge wide verges that should be turned into a segregated cycle path with no impact on drivers.Cycleway:

129894Photo #129894The Warehouse Cafe at the Friend of the Earth building are planning to reopen once the government guidlines allow. The likelihood of social distancing rules and reduced covers inside mean outdoor eating space would be crucial to ensure sustainability of this new and growing vegan cafe and event space. There are already car parking spaces and a yellow line in front of the building. I suggest creating a seating area in front of the cafe. Using large planters to delineate the area from passing traffic. This would create more safe and inviting outdoor accessible areas in the Digbeth area www.thewarehousecafe.comTrack:

128352Photo #128352In Central ladywood, a number of dedicated cycleways were set up in the 1980s. In the meantime they are now in a poor state of repair and need cleaning. I think these cycleways could cheaply be restored to good condition, re-surfaced where necessary and sign posted. I have marked this one linking the roundabout on the ladywood middleway to Ledsam street as an example. There are others nearby, for example one that goes along Chamberlain gardens and takes you to ladywood middlewayCycleway:

128065Photo #128065Cyclists are directed down a shared path so narrow that two bikes cannot pass each other. A much better alternative would be to make this a footpath and direct cyclists along Charfield Close to Cob Lane. Charfield Close has an outdated and extremely poor junction design that provides plenty of space to both to make the junction safer and to create a cycle crossing to the park.Track:
