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

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.

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]

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

New route here

New route needed

New route needed

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]

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]

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]

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?

Residential area with a school at a very busy street. Given the high traffic volume posing a danger to pupils, and the noise and air pollution posing a risk to their health, please: - remove on-street parking - add bicycle lane to allow s ... [more]

Residential area with a nursery at a very busy street. Given the high traffic volume posing a danger to small children, and the noise and air pollution posing a risk to their health, please: - reduce dual lane to single lane to reduce traf ... [more]

Residential area with an elderly home, 1 planned (August) and 1 existing nursery and 1 primary school. Given the high traffic volume posing a danger to the elderly and small children, and the noise and air pollution posing a risk to their h ... [more]

Shared cycle lanes far too narrow, need dedicated cycle lanes

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

Small Heath to Yardley Blue route needed here

Very narrow bridge, Can this be widened?

Cycle route ends from Sparkbrook connect to Battery Way.

This is an advisory cycle with routine speeding and close passes. It is used as a high speed rat run. Physical Traffic calming measures such as speed bumps should be introduced. Or the road closed at its western end.

This is a dangerous high speed road which deters cyclists.. A segregated cycle route is required either side of this road and the width of the footway should be maintained. The segregated cycle route should be established within the width ... [more]

This is an advisory cycle route linking NCR route 5 with Kings Heath. Although a 20mph road, It has routine speeding which deters cyclists. Some form of traffic calming is urgently needed along this road.

This is a dangerous high speed road with routine speeding and is an advisory cycle route. So high speed close passes are quite common. Traffic calming measures are urgently needed here such as speed humps.

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

This junction is hard to cross, Yellow box and cycle lane would allow vehicles to cross when the pelican crossing lights are red. Alternatively, put traffic lights on the junction

The present cycle path on chester road is more of a car park, impossible to use due to residends parking on it, chester road is very busy and not cycle friendly,

Widen path here to enable space for cyclists and pedestrians.

Cycle path needed here.

Path was built too narrow and needs widening as cyclists cannot pass pedestrians safely.

Cycle way to Boldmere and Wylde green

Safer pedestrian and cycle ways along Walmley Ash Rd

Create cycle way between Wylde Green and Sutton using the residential roads

With Safe crossing between Wilkinson Close and Sommerville, the residential roads could be used as quieter cycleways to the centre and the park.

Make the cycle way underneath less gloomy, and more comforting

Ensure the whole Wylde Green Rd has a cycle way. currently only a section has shared usage.

Materialise the 534 Cycleway with safe junctions and visible indications

Materialise the 534 cycle way between New Hall Valley and Sutton Park with a lane

The road and pavement is made very narrow by on road parking -- occupants have not alternatives. But this road is used as a short-cut by fast drivers: slow the speed of the road by giving priority to cycles and pedestrians as Dutch-style c ... [more]

A4097 needs a segregated shared cycleway / footpath as traffic is fast, but quite a few persons need to travel on this route. Alternatively, make using the canal path easily accessible.

The roads around here are very narrow and footpaths sometimes non-existent on one side or other.

Take the cars off the existing cycle way

The junction with Linden Road is busy for cars and difficult for cyclists to cross. Mary Vale Road is a link with Heath Road (from Northfield) and the Rea Valley. Perhaps traffic lights to control the crossing would assist all road users an ... [more]

Take the cars off the existing cycle way

Cycle lane for whole of Trittiford Road. Room available. Proper smooth surface (Road surface very poor at present)

Cycle lane. Plenty of room.

Dual carriageway but many parked cars making road narrow and much close passing of cyclists toiling up the hill. Make road single lane for motor vehicles with no parking. Cyclists on other lane.

Needs cycle lanes. Busy and narrow. Could be made one way (maybe except cycles) with Barn Lane and Wheelers Lane

Very wide road encourages speeding. introduce low traffic neighbourhood and install cycle lane.

Install cycle route to Kings Heath Boys School.

Create a segregated cycle route from here through the park to Brook Lane/ Wheelers Lane and onto Howard Road as part of a high quality/high visability cycle route to schools scheme.

Bollards create a pinch point here for cyclists with cars squeezing past to closely. Put a proper zebra crossing in.

Dropped kerb needed here

The service road was blocked off so cars could access the school meaning cyclists going to the school or just passing and pedestrians are forced onto a narrow badly surfaced path. Introduce cycle crossing onto service road.

Could re draw the central white lines on Russell Road to slightly widen the uphill lane to give cyclists a bit more room as they going up the hill and make it easier for vehicles to overtake. Although this would mean narrowing the downhill ... [more]

Create segregated cycle lane on wide grass area of Brook Lane near the service road connect to Wheelers Lane and then through Swanshurst Park and to the Cole Valley route

Install cycle lane on the grass verge next to park and continue to Dads Lane.

Cycle lane needed on Alcester Road South service road, extend from canal, pathway is to narrow so open up a gap using leisure centre car park up to Taylor Road

Cycle way - road is very wide so children can cycle to the local schools -connect to Wheelers Lane and Howard Road

Allow cyclists who are on the road contraflow access off roundabout into Olton Boulevard East

Cycleway ends. continue route to Summer Road

Service road cycle path full of potholes and parked cars. New housing development should have been required to upgrade this cycle route

This junction is dangerous for cyclists. slow down traffic and cycleway

This junction is dangerous for cyclists. slow down traffic to 20mph and cycleway

Traffic at 100mph here not joking, slow down traffic entire area to 20mph and cycleway

This road has cars at 100mph (not joking). slow down traffic to 20mph and cycleway

Again lorries and cars and buses pass within inches at high speed as there is no room and they want to overtake

Lorries and cars pass close at high speed all along this road towards Sutton

Cycle way from Sutton Coldfield Railway Station to the Town Centre

No easy way to cross from Rea St to Milk Street by bike

Poor junction for cyclists crossing Highgate Middle Way onto Upper Conybere Street - needs better segregation and design

Improve safety for cyclists along school road. Much irresponsible driving behaviour is encountered along the road endangering life

Narrow lane but has wide space for a cycle path alongside pavement

Clear and repair existing cycle/pedestrian way Wagtail Walk right throughout Castle Vale

Clear and repair existing cycle/pedesrian way Wagtial walk right throughout Castle Vale

Remove slalom barrier at end of Bourn Brook Walkway to make it more accessible to those with non-stanard cycles, child trailers etc. The route can be accessed by riding across the grass from Leasow Drive, so the barrier does nothing to pre ... [more]
