A separate cycle path is needed the length of South Eden Park Road. At the moment there is only a very narrow footpath on one side of the road. With the new housing development on the old Glaxo site there will be an big increase in the numb ... [more]

Drivers of motor vehicles behave like it's a two lane road before it actually is, which means they often pinch cyclists between the traffic and kerb for no reason. A cycle lane painted on the road will make them give more space. When it doe ... [more]

Cars often pull out of this exit without properly looking, resulting in danger for cyclists and others. Something to fix this would be good.

This road is the entrance for the Bethlem Royal hospital. Cycling in this area is unpleasant. Especially Monks Orchard Road. There is space here to install a separate cycle lane. Some of the existing pavement could be used for a two wa ... [more]

On E-Scooters: The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution. Greenpeace agree with this idea. For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians ... [more]

Aproaching from the west side it's difficult for cyclists to avoid the fast moving traffic to gain access Beckenham High Street.

Traffic island but no dropped kerb on either side so inaccessible for Many

Since the local market stopped, this part of Maple Road has become a rat-run and yet, with a school one side and a church and shops the other side, it has huge potential as a community hub - less traffic, more walking and cycling

The A21 from here right up to Locksbottom is very poor for cyclists. All the major major traffic light junctions feature a 'safe' area but are very difficult to reach when the traffic is even a little bit heavy - just when you need them the ... [more]

Large numbers of children cross at this location

Encourage cycling walking scooters for darrick wood infant and junior school. This road is dangerous and parking should be banned outside school for safety

Narrow the entrance to Bird in the Hand Lane. It's has a very wide entrance with no footway along the eastern side by Bickley Road so it is difficult to see down the road before crossing. It's width also makes it a challenge to cross with ... [more]

Crossing in has no dedicated pedestrian crossing - it Is a death trap waiting to happen. To cross you need to run and hope - how on earth this is not better manged outside a blind corner and surgery.

Pavement is very narrow, almost impossible for two people to pass, on a very busy road

Slow traffic speed from this point on towards George Lane. There are three schools from here to there

Double yellow lines to stop parking in the cycle lane. Every house on this road has a drive so on street parking isn't needed

Provide mixed-use paved path on this road, as a quiet and direct route to and from Beckenham Place Park. Almost impassable for buggies, wheelchairs or bikes.

Busy junction that is difficult to negotiate on a bicycle without being squeezed by motorists. Lack of segregated cycle lanes on surrounding roads. Give cyclists (and pedestrians) a dedicated phase on lights to enable safer crossing.

Narrow pavement which becomes congested at school opening and closing times. Need a wider space here

Very busy and difficult with cars pulling in front to turn down Westmoreland rd. Also very smelly with exhaust fumes.

Cyclists squeezed by cars

Crofton Road needs segregated cycle lanes and speed cameras for vehicles.

Speeding vehicles along Godwin and Siward Road making it unsafe to walk in the road, to avoid people walking on the pavement.

Too narrow for people to pass

Fast cars use Ravensmead road as a cut through going very fast which is dangerous. The paths are too narrow on Ravensmead road as well.

Too narrow for people to pass

Reduce traffic and get people on bikes

Too narrow

There is no pavement for pedestrians

Pedestrian priority crossing required here. 1000s of schoolchildren need to cross this fast road safely to access Langley Park Schools

Dangerous road for cyclists as drivers speed over limit and ignore VAS. Residents' vehicles cannot safely exit side roads. Speed limit reduction needed.

Numbers have more than doubled of cyclists using this road. It’s narrow so a cycle path would be difficult. But reduced speed limits and warning signs would make the road safer

Numbers have more than doubled of cyclists using this road. It’s narrow so a cycle path would be difficult. But reduced speed limits and warning signs would make the road safer

Speeding traffic is very bad, we fear our kids are not safe on their way to their school. Please do something, please

Speeding vehicles along Godwin and Siward Roads making it unsafe to walk in the road, to avoid people walking on the pavement.

The combination of narrow road and narrow pavement makes the stretch under the railway bridge dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike. The pavement needs improving and if it’s not possible to widen the road then traffic ... [more]

Pavement is too narrow. Cars / lorries often mount pavement and too tight to social distance

Widen pavement and add crossing

Speed humps or some sort of speeding deterrent needed for Siward /Godwin Road. It is a cut through road and desperately needs more than the current roundabout to slow the speeding traffic which is constant and very dangerous to pedestrians ... [more]

There are huge issues with speeding down our road. Speed cameras could help cut this down or speed bumps.

Speeding vehicles on this quiet road is horrendous. It needs speed bumps and a 20mph limit. Also those school flashing lights as many children and parents walk along it everyday in term time.

Lots of crashes and near accidents and aggressive motor behaviour as the road is too narrow and the road is used as a cut through! Our car has been smashed twice and my child nearly run over and me nearly run over!

Far too much speeding along here. And someone crashed into a front garden on this road recently. Parents walk kids home via this road and it doesn’t feel safe. Speed bumps or clearer speed limit signs needed.

The pavements are far too narrow down Godwin Road

Path narrow and raised with tree roots - a tripping hazard

Path too narrow

This is a wide part of the road but the entry from the main road A234 is no entry, one way. But the one way is just to stop entry from the main road to the train station car park some 30 meters long. If this was two way for cyclists only i ... [more]

Widen the footpath

Getting out of Clock House Road on a cycle on to the roundabout to head south is dangerous with constant flow of traffic coming from the right.

Current shared pavement is too narrow for pedestrians, let alone cyclists as well. There is a lot of road/verge space for a proper segregated cycleway to connect into existing provision closer to Orpington

There would be space for a proper segregated cycle way between Chislehurst and Sidcup along Perry Street. Currently many inexperienced cyclists only feel confident on the pavement here.

We need a pedestrian crossing for the safety of all of the children (and adults) on their way to school/work. Cars speed around the bend and the area is in a real need of a curved traffic mirror to be able to see!

Busy area for children crossing road to school with no nearby crossings. Add a crossing or lollipop person.

Crossing the road from Glassmill Ln/Queens Mead Rd to the recreation ground/park is poorly signposted for walkers/children/dog walkers/cyclists.

Very poor lighting, overhanging trees, narrow pathway between the road to the recreation ground park

This busy junction would benefit from a CYCLOPS system of cycle paths/signals

Cycle racks for staff and children's bikes at school would be useful as access into school to lock up may be limited due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Cycle racks for staff and children's bikes at school would be useful as access into school to lock up may be limited due to Covid-19 restrictions.

A protected or marked cycleway along this road would provide a useful link across Bromley for school staff, parents and children for the local schools.

Some form of formal crossing is needed here for children going to Harris Primary School from the Queens Mead side of the railway.

We need wider paths outside the school for the volume of children and a reduction in traffic speed

Desperate need of a crossing at Valley school. Cars rarely stop for pedestrians and it is HUGELY dangerous for small children and their parents/grandparents going to school. It MUST be a priority.

We need a pedestrian crossing for the safety of all of the children (and adults) on their way to school/work. Cars speed around the bend and the area is in a real need of a curved traffic mirror to be able to see!

Make this section open to cyclists so that it's legal to use the toucan crossing on the A21 to then get up to Widmore Road.

Pavement needs widening to give more space for social distancing when waiting to cross and slow traffic turinng into Farnaby Rd by making the mouth of it narrower. Extra pavement space would also give a good location for a controlled (butto ... [more]

Zebra crossings needed around this roundabout.

Crystal Palace Park Road needs segregated cycle lanes so does Anerley road on the other side of the park. Make both roads one way eg down Anerley and up Crystal Palace Park to give the space for cycle lanes in both directions and wider path ... [more]

Closing Maple Road at one end would reduce traffic making it safer for pedestrians and cyclists

If you installed a footpath here, people could avoid walking on the narrrow pavement on Anerley Road at the bus stop opposite Thicket Road

The traffic speeds on Siward and Godwin Roads are ridiculous - something to slow cars down to make it safe to cycle, and walk on these streets

Footbridge is really narrow and not enough room to stay physically distant. Maybe close a lane on the bridge (traffic light?) and allow pedestrians an additional pavement - might slow the speeding cars down too!

Busy with cars and parking in both directions with narrow pavements on access to primary school

Old Hill has very narrow (or non-existent) pavements despite being key walking route to schools, station and other amenities. Reducing on street parking or introducing a one-way system would make a big difference.

The High Street is crying out for better cycle infrastructure and wider pavements. Currently it is unpleasant and dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists and cars with unnecessary amount of parking in front of shops that pull out into road. Giv ... [more]

Very dangerous junction with with cyclists having very few alternative routes in area (and on existing cycleways). High traffic speeds mean pedestrians or dismounted cyclists also at risk

Existing cycle lanes could easily be upgraded to improve segregation from busy traffic as road has plenty of spare width and key route close to several schools. Current lanes stop/start and vanish entirely at junctions.

This road feels dangerous as a cyclist. bike lanes stop and start and cars aways cut cyclists up. it needs to be safer, continuous and better marked

It is very dangerous for cyclists. The cycle part is the pavement that isn't clearly marked, it's not suitable and difficult to use as a cyclist. Being the major route towards London it should be a priority.

Modal filter (walking/bicycles only) to quieten streets by minimising through traffic

Modal filter (walking/bicycles only) to quieten streets by minimising through traffic

Protected cycle lanes on both sides on approach to school with parking restrictions as appropriate

No cycle lanes in Penge at all. This needs to change

Why can't this junction be made more pedestrian friendly? You have to cross the road in stages, often made harder by all the vehicles driving through red traffic lights. Regularly.

Why is this stretch of road 40mph? After the Locksbottom Junction makes sense but not this small stretch. It just encourages higher speeds.

Maybe the new cycle path could come from somewhere and then go somewhere . It's about 2m long at the moment!

Connect the underpass cycle route to “The Drive” to provide a traffic free route to Petts Wood eben combined with bridle paths in the woods at the other end of the Drive

Barriers at each end of this path limit use of what would otherwise be an easy quiet north south route as alternative to busy Cray Avenue.

Only 70cm wide footpath

Walking and cycling cannot peacefully co-exist on a footpath unless the footpath, like the one behind Scott’s Park school, is at least doubled in size and the areas for walking or cycling are delineated clearly and the proper use is stri ... [more]

Modal Filter required to prevent motor vehicles using this road as a rat-run

There is a school gate around a blind bend in Bromley Rd, cars speed through this stretch of the road at dangerous speeds. There will be casualties in front of Bishop Challoner School when more children leave from the gate. The council ne ... [more]

Making a cycle path from Bromley High Street down Glassmill Lane, through Station Approach and onto Beckenham Lane/Bromley Road into Beckenham. It would promote active travel between Bromley Town and Beckenham and help reduce traffic in an ... [more]

This road has Buller's Wood school and soon will have Buller's Boys - it also provides a link between Chislehurst station and Bromley Town, a cycle path would promote active travel between Bromley and Chislehurst, cutting down on traffic wh ... [more]

Footpath is too narrow for social distancing, particularly with the hundreds of students who leave Bullers Wood in term time.

Dedicated cycleway from the cyclepath at sevenoaks way to petts wood would make cycling much safer as poverest road to petts wood is a fast busy road with cars parked intermittently and queuing cars near junctions, it would also allow an al ... [more]

This road is too narrow for the amount of through motor traffic. Make this a no-through road for motor traffic.

Undergrowth encroaching on the road forces cyclists out into traffic on a busy road

Timings of this crossing needs changing - it's not long enough, it should change more rapidly for people queueing. This is a very busy, polluted road and I don't want to stand here a moment more than necessary with my kids breathing in the ... [more]
