152129Photo #152129Because of the angle of Outwood Lane, often cars push out onto the mainroad to get a better view for pulling out, however this then encroaches on the cycling lane and create a possible collision. Also there is severe damage on the tarmac which makes this area a little risky when travelling down hill. Suggest: cycle lane in another colour to highlight cycles coming past and relaying the pavement.Cycleway:

150985Photo #150985Two lanes of queuing traffic and/or one lane of parked cars and one lane of queuing traffic. Road is just wide enough for two cars so bicycles cannot pass or filter easily without crossing into oncoming traffic. This discourages active travel.Cycleway:

144474Photo #144474Road is fast and busy with no cycle path. Some blind corners. Meant to be a 40 but is national from the roundabout and a cycle path would make it safer. Needs improvement to make wakefield to Leeds commuting possibleCycleway:

143578Photo #143578Noise and air pollution together with the high speed that vehicles travel make this ‘High Street’, at best, very unpleasant for the residents and pedestrians who shop along the length of the road.

Simple and cost effective widening of the east side pavement from the Stainbeck Road junction to Wood Lane, removal of all car parking at the shop frontages, provision of both north and south cycle lanes and most importantly application and enforcement of 20mph speed limit will transform this Conservation area and reduce incidents of illness, injury and potential death. Some of the hospitality venues will once more become viable as external seating will be accommodated. Reallocation of road space for planting and casual seating will make relaxation and verbal communication without shouting possible.

140342Photo #140342E Chevin Rd is quite wide at the bottom but doesn't have any cycling provision. Cars also routinely ignore the 30mph limit, which should be extended beyond the entrances to the parking for Chevin Forest Park. The national speed limit is also inappropriately high for the whole of the road which becomes narrow with limited lines of sight near busy junctions. This makes cycling along here very intimidating.Cycleway:

140318Photo #140318There is an existing section of the A660 which has a white line about a metre from the kerb. This runs from the far end of the Burley by-pass roundabout all the way round the Otley by-pass it has a couple of breaks but it is also full of rubbish and needs some hedge cutting back. If it was cleaned it would make a decent cycle lane.Cycleway:
