153296Photo #153296The 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:

140262Photo #140262The 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!Cycleway:

137861Photo #137861The 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.Cycleway:

136883Photo #136883The 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.

135213Photo #135213Cycle way on pavement is too narrow. Often overgrown hedges mean you can't cycle on it. Hazards with cars pulling out of drive ways across cycle way, service station needs signage to warm that a cycle way passes it, cars parking on pavement toward chester end of A51 blocking cycle way, poor signage for start and finish of cycle way, raised kerbs at roads which the cycle way crosses. Improve access across vicars cross roundabout takes longer to navigate it than it does to cycle from Tarvin to the roundabout. Perhaps a designated cycle lane marking on road traveling from Tarvin to Chester ( A51 Chester bound) and a cycle lane across the vicars cross roundabout that is on the road. Lower Kerbs at road junctions, improve transit across round about for bikes and pedestrians.Cycleway:
