Nasty new cycle stands on the main square of Stow-on-the-Wold

The newish one-way system makes cycle access to Moreton-in-Marsh station difficult.

This should be used for access to Moreton-in-Marsh station, with cycle parking on the east side of the line.

The pavement is in terrible condition from Tetbury to Highgrove not usable by pedestrians or cyclists

West St in poor condition with broken paving/edging and potholes not cycle or pedestrian friendly. Highways just bodged it again not fully resurfaced.

Road in terrible condition dangerous to cyclists and needs resurfacing, winter a nightmare to use with flooding

Need to make safer for cyclist as 40mph zone that cars speed and primary route for cyclists leaving Tetbury to nicer lanes and countryside.

Make a crossing here as hard to cross having to watch traffic from roundabout

Make this lane a 20mph zone as used a lot by cyclists and pedestrians, speeding cars all the time

Poor pavement with potholes that highways will not fix! Trip hazard awaiting victims

Crossing needs traffic control

GWR need to make their Inter City Express Trains able to easily take tandem bicycles so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with their partners. Bad for tourism!

Pavement needs widening and parked cars need to be moved away all down the frontages from the old Dormer school to the Redesdale Arms. All these shops and cafes are quite small along this side of the High Street. This road is not needed fo ... [more]

Cycling round this corner is very dangerous as parked cars make the road very narrow and so coaches have to drive on the wrong side of the road when they leave school. I skidded off my bike infront of a bus here. Really parking should not b ... [more]

Tricky roundabout for a cyclist

Open the old branch line to Tetbury as a cycleway/footpath and provide a safe route avoiding the A433.

Drop curb needed opposite turn from Castle Street into Park Lane

The whole of Long Street needs resurfacing to make it safe for cycling. There are long cracks that could trap a tyre and too many dangerous holes or lumps to count. It's appalling - I have already reported the holes and cracks to the counci ... [more]

Add a shared footpath and cyclepath on the side of Bath Road with out any pavement

Add a shared footpath and cyclepath on the side of Bath Road with out any pavement

This area needs another path and a clear pedestrian crossing with traffic calming in place. The speed at which cars and lorries drive up this stretch is dangerous for all the mums and children getting to school.

Wider pavement on corner of Church Street / Long Street, as lorries mount pavement as they turn corner, very dangerous.

Could a drop kerb be put in off the edge of the green at Amberley Park at the nursing home entrance and on the pavement that follows on from it on Mercer Way please?

There is no pavement along the main road to the new housing development

This part of the path is very dangerous and uneven, with very bad potholes, which you would think would by much better maintained considering it is the main route to the secondary school. This has been raise with GCC and CDC on many occasio ... [more]

You cannot even walk on this part of the footpath as the bush is too overgrown.

The bushes in this area have always been extremely overgrown and needs attention. This contributes towards the problem. The left hand side travelling towards the school is also the only side of the road with a footpath as there isn't a path ... [more]

Long street should be pedestrianised. Too many, cars, trucks etc flow through at speed and makes the experience uncomfortable, especially when one has children.

This junction needs improving for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. traffic builds at busy times as exit is locked by waiting vehicles turning right. box junction, feeder lanes, cycle lane, pedestrian crossing, pavement widening all neede ... [more]

Reduce speed limit to 20mph, add road narrowing lines to improve safeety for pedestrians and cyclists

Crossing between the Snooty Fox and Quayles is very tricky and dangerous especially with cars speeding off the roundabout. Could do with a marked pedestrian crossing on that street.

No pavement coming from the lioncourt homes development. Walkers with children are forced to walk on the road.

Crossing for Bourton-Kingham cycle way

Bourton to Kingham cycle way

Convert former Bourton to Kingham railway track to cycle or multiuser trail

Very dangerous bend for cyclists. Cars approaching blind bend at 60mph where 2 carriageways merge into one. Crazy! Needs a marked cycle space or, better, physical separation.

Only cycleable road out of Cheltenham to East. Needs segregated cycleway.

Extend the Tetbury Trail to provide a safe off-road route to Kemble Station

The Tetbury Trail can't be made one way as the loop proposed would use footpaths that cyclists can't use.

Traffic calming and speed reduction would be very useful along Conygar Road as many vehicles drive too fast for what is no through residential road.

If there was a complete ban on vehicle parking through the centre of town, the road could be narrowed and pavements widened. Along with a speed reduction and increased weight limitation for large vehicles, this would significantly improve s ... [more]

Use parking space to widen pavement

Pavements too narrow and people standing and drinking outside of the ormond

Doorways too narrow to maintain social distance

Pavement is too narrow and unsafe, especially for children

Needed a drop curb either side. And signs to show people crossing or something

Pavement incomplete

There should be a pavement leading from the Highfields estate to the older estate adjacent to Highfields. This would allow children living in the Highfields estate a Walkable route to school without the need to cross a main road at all

There is no official crossing from the Highfields estate to the main path down to towards schools and stores. Children and adults are expected to just run across the main road. The addition of a zebra crossing may help here

Love lane is the nicest safest route into town and I’m really glad the no bikes sign was taken down. It is fixed width but people have been very courteous using it during lockdown

This is really scary to walk Or cycle but there is no pavement.

Love Lane is the nicest safest route into town and I’m really glad the no bikes sign was taken down. It is fixed width but people have been very courteous using it during lockdown

You can cross here from the safer route cycling to Tesco’s on the way to school but it’s very difficult to safely cross. Really need some sort of one way system, just around school hours

I’d like to see a zebra crossing here. A lot of people and kids on bikes cross over on this corner and sometimes cars are really haring round

A better pedestrian crossing, possibly a speed bump either side of this crossing to also slow traffic turning onto Chavenage Lane.

The alley to the Library although really useful is very narrow and not suitable for social distancing. There is also no visibility where it exits to Long Street increasing the risk of literally bumping into someone else let alone maintaini ... [more]

Pavement here is poor and doesn’t match up where you are forced to cross and so crossing is difficult. This is a busy A road and a popular crossing point. The pavement needs to be improved, traffic slowed and possibly an island added.

This is a really popular walking and family cycling route around town and the crossing of the main A road here is really dangerous. It is a fast and busy road and a blind corner. Traffic needs to be slowed and warned of the crossing point a ... [more]

Many people use Eccles Ct to bypass Long Street and particularly as a route to St Mary’s School. The natural place to cross busy London Road is near the hardware shop rather than walking up to the crossing near Priory Way. Either a new ... [more]

Very difficult to cross from one side of The Chipping to the other. The natural place to cross is near the entrance to the car park however visibility here when crossing from the Christchurch side is zero due primarily to the green van whic ... [more]

Very narrow pavement along the main road which is the only pedestrian access to the hospital. Improving this may encourage people to walk the short distance from town to the hospital.

Path to narrow with hgv trucks inches away

Crossing the A4135 from outside Top Banana Antiques with children is very dangerous, even with the island halfway you are unable to see vehicles turning in from the junction and they are unable to see you until they have swung around the co ... [more]

Crossing this road is very dangerous, very often cars are speeding up to leave town and are going far beyond the 30 miles an hour. There needs to be a crossing to allow safe walking and cycling across the road.

A pedestrian crossing needed - this will slow traffic and make it safer for all people to cross this road that people often speed up

Cycle from Bourton on the Water to The Slaughters without needing to cycle on the busy FosseWay

Roseblade Walk has exits onto the main road which has no footpath on this side. Can Roseblade Walk be extended to pick up the footpath coming out of Shepherds Mead? This would remove the need to cross the busy and fast moving A road

Some discreet lighting down this path would help. Note as gardens back onto this pathway low level lighting would be needed

Whilst the footpath is quite wide it is quite impossible to walk along it during and after rain as the number of puddles and stream going down the road make it a certainty of getting soaked by traffic as they are forced into the puddles. No ... [more]

Add cycleways to allow a safe route to / from Long Newnton and reduce speed limit to 30mph. This is a dangerous stretch of road with high speed traffic. From Long Newnton there are quiet, safe lanes to surrounding villages and out to Cotswo ... [more]

Cutwell and Berrells Road are used as a rat run for people avoiding Long Street traffic. This is particularly bad when there are events that close Long Street and when there are road works in the Town. If Long Street was closed to traffic i ... [more]

We need cycle provision throughout the town and on the A roads leading out to country roads to make cycling safe and encourage more of us to do it.

This roundabout and the way drivers use it is very dangerous if you are on a bike. Drivers cut straight across it and do always properly stop and look particularly if they are coming up from the Chipping Car Park.

The pavement here is so narrow. Scary when big lorries are driving past and also not possible to socially distance. There is no pavement on the other side either.

The pavement is to narrow for quite a long stretch but there is also no pavement on the other side for a short stretch so you cross the road to avoid others but you are then walking on the road. A pavement on the other side is needed.

Too many HTC lorries ignoring the ban and using Tetbury as short cut from M4 Malmesbury to M5 Stroud. Enforce the weight restrictions more vigorously. Revise the Bath and Wiltshire bridge weight restrictions to interference very heavy vehi ... [more]
