Shared-use path whose useability is severely impaired by ending abruptly at the bottom of a dip, meaning that one must stop to rejoin the road going back uphill behind the camera with all momentum lost. It would be a cheap but massive improvement to widen the footpath to shared-use up to Dee Banks School to complete a relatively safe cycle route from there down to the Saighton Camp neighbourhood.

Two-way cycling along the pedestrianised Frodsham Street, you meet service buses head-on which ought to terminate at the new bus station across the canal instead.

Parking stand at Tesco on Sealand Road, too narrow for two bikes to each upright but there is CCTV monitoring and plenty of room for expansion should demand increase.

There should be a dedicated cycle /pedestrian path created to link Kingsley and Frodsham so that it is possible to transit safely between the two villages without having to battle cars/lorries and vans etc.

Cycleway:
Problem
174394

The existing path between the village and KCP should be widened and made into a shared pedestrian/cycle path so that children and parents from the village can safely travel along it separated from cars/lorries and vans that use the 40mph road often without consideration for other users.

Sinusoidal speed humps are good, they don't cause much discomfort but if you go much too fast over them, they'll launch you out of the saddle.

Narrow access and gate post loose on National Cycle Route 5

Cycleway:
Problem
153773

Parts of this track are very rutted and in wet weather almost unnavigable, as part of a long distance Sustrans route it should be in better condition as it is a good traffic-free route from Frodsham to Helsby, Ellesmere Port and Elton.

Cycleway:
Problem
153772

The track is deeply rutted and potholes needs to be graded to allow better access for cars to Hoverforce and also bikes to the Marshes

The footpath has been encroached on by the grass and tree roots have lifted the pavement. This verge is wide enough to accommodate a shared bike/path if the footpath was cleared and pavement resurfaced

The cycle lanes on Long Lane are unsafe to use due to overhanging hedges, lack of use leading to the lanes full of rubbish and the speed of traffic. In line with Sustrans recommendations cyclists should be directed along the quieter national route 56 through residential streets and on to the off road cycle way. The main A roads should be given over to traffic so that it can flow freely around the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.

Cycleway:
Problem
153295

Buses should not be allowed to come down Frodsham St and Foregate St. They could be rerouted left out of the bus station over the canal to the Bats roundabout. These roads could then pedestrianised. Rising bollards should be put where Foregate St meets Love St.

Temporary closure:
Problem
153294

Buses and taxis being allowed to travel down the newly pedestrianised road is highly unsafe. Buses should be routed left out of the bus station, over the canal to the Bars roundabout. Rising bollards put at entrance to Frodsham St.

Temporary closure:
Problem
153291

Traffic allowed to travel down Northgate St means pedestrians are squeezed onto the narrow pavements either side. Northgate should be pedestrianised with rising bollards under the Northgate.

My map shows a track here; or there is a footpath a little further on. This would be a fantastic route through to Wrexham road, avoiding the main road routes.

In addition to the comment already noted; cars travel too fast. Colour tarmac or space for cycling painted on road here with restrictions - maybe keep it to 30 mph?

Cycleway:
Problem
140262

The cycle lane comes to an end on lower lache lane for no reason just where it is most needed. The road changes from a fairly straight suburban 30mph road with cycle lanes and wide verges to a twisting country road with high hedges and speeding traffic and suddenly the cycle lane stops???!! Just like so many other cycle lanes around Chester where there's room there's a white line painted on the road and just where the road narrows and becomes dangerous the paint runs out!

You can go under subway but it's grotty and feels a bit unsafe. Crossings are in wrong places and going round round about on a bike is impossible.

Cycleway:

The road from the Overleigh roundabout over the Grosvenor bridge and into town is very problematic for cyclists; there is no clear safe way for cyclists to take. Vehicles often go too fast, an increasing number swing left down Nun’s road (heading for the retail park?) making it more unsafe crossing on a bicycle at that intersection. The big Grosvenor road roundabout needs better cycle access routes. The safest way for a cyclist to go from the Overleigh roundabout into the centre of Chester is on the pavement which rightly causes problems with pedestrians.

Cars drivers constantly fail to see cyclists crossing this junction - particularly when turning right from Brook St into Hoole Way. At the very least, improved traffic light filtering is required to prevent traffic turning right across oncoming traffic.

The road between Ellesmere port and the A41 Chester to Birkenhead road is dangerous for cyclists 1 because it is bust and no cycle lane ,2 because it goes over the motorway it is lack of vision of road ahead and cars can not see the cyclists ,3 the road has not got any lights on most of the road making it even more dangerous at night and blinded by car headlights coming over the motorway bridge.
