141942Photo #141942One of the arterial routes in and out of the centre could really do with a segregated cycle lane to prevent close passes from speeding motorists. Roads already wide enough, just needs some white lines painting on it.Cycleway:

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:

140138Photo #140138The road is very narrow and there is no real pavement, just a verge so when walking you either walk in mud or on the road with traffic behind you. It is not possible at all to walk on the other side. A proper pavement needs installing and cars need to have a lower speed limit as they race down here.Track:

138358Photo #138358Traffic calming and road layout needed around the mini roundabout. Far too many car drivers take massive risks here. Parking on approach from North needs to be removed to reduce risk, speed bumps need installing on all approaches.Cycleway:
Problem

137398Photo #137398This road has a central reservation but i'm not sure what it does. Road is 20mph but if you cycle down at 20ish the the cars are itching to get by. many cars parked at side of road so you need to pull in to middle so as not to get doored. this annoys drivers who have no idea why you are in the middle of the road. central reservation is incomplete. it just stops.Cycleway:

136657Photo #136657King Lane
popular route for cyclists getting out of north leeds. it's quite a narrow road and cars go too fast. signs reminding motorists of presence of cyclists would be an improvement or (dream on) road widening.

135753Photo #135753There is a shared path here and a one way road. This means that while it is possible to cycle up the hill on the road, it is impossible to do so the other way. Would it be possible to widen this path in some way?Track:

134432Photo #134432A very narrow dangerous road for both cycling and walking. Traffic speeds. Children walking to 6 schools and a scout & guide hall. Why not make it one way with Westwood Way, increase width of pavement and add a cycle lane.Cycleway:
Problem

134337Photo #134337Cycleway needed from Fforde Green to Barrack Road, inbound. Heavy cycle use (and far more use if it felt safe) but downhill (speeding cars and vans), narrow carriageway (the way it is set out on the wide road), and parked cars. Mostly used by seasoned cyclists because of an intense sense of danger. And the only realistic corridor to the City for a large suburban (and bike owning/using sector of the city).Cycleway:

133775Photo #133775The route from Headingley via Beckett Park is excellent but it ends at Station Parade and you have to mix with the traffic on Morris Lane and Kirkstall Hill.

130188Photo #130188The centre of Meanwood could be massively improved by some serious traffic calming and redesign, to turn it from a set of awkward road junctions into a space for people. Remove the pedestrian railings, add some trees and flower planters, restrict the road width, replace tarmac with paving stones and make it 20mph.Track:
