Steps and wheeling channel where NCN routes 6 and 700 leave the Lancaster Canal (to bypass Carnforth)

Steps and wheeling channel where NCN routes 6 and 700 leave the Lancaster Canal (to bypass Carnforth)

NCN route 6 takes this link down to the Lancaster Canal - I don't think there's a sign

This will be a decent link when proper dropped kerbs are installed.

The usual semi-finished look of a new housing development, with piles of asphalt instead of proper dropped kerbs.

Clearly too many drivers are cutting into this cycle lane.

Covid-19 pop-up cycle lane past the Royal Lancaster Infirmary - and a white van blocking it.

Ask management to supervise parking better and prevent visitors staff from blocking pedestrian access by parking on the footway here.

New Resident parks Transit pickup blocking footpath. Ask that he uses a side street to park on the road only.

Builders’ vans block the pavement. Ask them to park onsite.

Create a cycle lane along A683 between Caton and Hornby

Reduce all of King St, China St and Bridge lane to single lane of cars to give adequate space to cyclists and pedestrians.

Enforcement needed on the tiny cycle path by roundabout as there is always a black pick up or a white van parked there.

Very fast road with no safe cycling provision and alternatives are very long

Very narrow footpath alongside a busy road

Parked vehicles on both sides of road often block short cycle lanes provided at pinch-point, forcing cyclists dangerously into pinch-point.

Extend the cycle way along the old railway line all the way to Wennington. This would bypass the A683 and B6480 ,dangerous roads to cycle on.

No need for this road. Many use it as a rat run to avoid traffic lights. Dangerous to through traffic on King St esp cyclists.

Pop up cycle lane here as the road is quite wide and space for cyclists would be very welcome

Illegal parking around the Spar need to be prevented to allow safe use of Chapel Lane Galgate for cyclists

No pavement at all, even road markings would help

Narrow pavement on both sides, far too busy, needs widening

No obvious bike parking in any of the rear car parks at the RLI, for workers or visitors.

No obvious bike parking in any of the rear car parks at the RLI, for workers or visitors.

Current station bike parking is inside and locked after the last train arrives, meaning you can't access your bike if you get in on a late rail replacement bus

Entire business park has no cycle parking for workers or for visitors (or customers at Screwfix)

Set of small shops currently has no cycle parking

Set of small shops currently has no cycle parking

Set of small shops currently has no cycle parking

Narrow road and frightening for cyclists. Dedicated space for cyclists needed.

Lots of parked cars here forcing cyclists into and out of traffic. Dedicated cycleway and parking restrictions needed.

Road is narrow with parked cars. Cyclists forced into the middle of the road. Dedicated cycle path and parking restrictions needed.

Pavement on Ashford Road (opposite the cemetery and down the bus-only road to the junction with the A588) is narrow and overgrown. Hard enough for one person to walk on without going on the road; impossible to distance on. It's a popular wa ... [more]

Blea Tarn Road is a popular walking route out of Lancaster towards Bowland, but there's no pavement and cars go very fast.

Langthwaite Road is a popular walking route out of Lancaster towards Bowland, but there's no pavement and cars go very fast.

Grab Lane is a rat run for cars, with limited visibility. It's also one of the few walking routes for the housing developments on The Colonnade and Wyresdale Road, and quite nice to walk along. Too narrow to walk along if a car is driving d ... [more]

Bridge is a rat run... close it to all vehicles. In addition that would reduce volume of traffic on narrow road between A683 and the bridge.

Enforcement of illegal parking which blocks cycle path as vehicles drop off and pick up from Medical Practice.

Enforcement of one way street, vehicles illegally exit from Henry Street onto the A6. Area is busy with vehicles parking for takeaway.

Contra-flow cycle way frequently blocked by park cars. Often associated with supermarket or takeaway users. Bollards would prevent blockage.

Pavement frequently blocked, daytime and evenings by cars delivering for local take away stores.

Cars parking on the pavement in fine weather in order to visit river etc. Blocks pavement totally and obscures clear view of junction. Ticketing of vehicles does not remove the problem once it is there.

Illegally parked cars, on the path, along side white zigzags on the road for zebra crossing, makes it difficult to see people using the crossing. Especially vans and wagons.

Pavement regularly totally blocked by a van and two cars, preventing use of the path by cyclists, wheelchair users, pushchairs etc. Any one walking would have to go on the grass or busy road.

Both pavements blocked with parked cars.

Cycle way and pavement would be great. Motorcyclists make this road lethal for pedestrians, cyclists and even car drivers. Some motorcyclists treat this road and A683 like it’s a racecourse. It sounds like Silverstone some days. It’s th ... [more]

Cycle path all the way along A683 would be great. Motorcycles treat this road like a race course. They overtake dangerously and cause noise pollution. Horrendous.

Very little traffic and lots of pedestrians in a narrow street but dominated by cars, parking and loading

Spare road space, inadequate cycleway

Narrow pavement spare traffic lanes

Remove Penny/Market Street cycling restrictions, to encourage cycling as a sustainable way of accessing the city centre

Busy road, a protected cycle lane between Bolton-le-Sands, Hest Bank and Morecambe Prom would help encourage commuter/school and leisure cycling

The A6 is unsafe for cyclists between Carnforth and Bolton-le-Sands - fast and dangerous overtakes are far too common. The canal path exists, but is not ideal. Segregated cycle lane required.

Reconfigure entry/exit to the car park, so that cyclists and pedestrians on the Prom are protected from motor vehicles - the current shared use is dangerous.

Add bollards to prevent unauthorised vehicles driving along the Prom - slipway users should only need access to the slipway!

Busy road but the best route in and out of north Lancaster needs proper cycle provision

Cycle marking on the A6.

Worn out painted cycle lane only visible by its colour, leading from Water St to the Toucan Crossing across Cable St to Chapel St. Google Streetview shows that those signs have been facing the wrong way for over 2 years!

Narrow shared-use footway to access toucan crossing on Stonewell.

Entrance to underpass, with barriers at each end.

Not the prettiest of underpasses, and narrow with a corner at one end.

Path towards Lancaster, needing swept of decaying leaf mess in several locations.

No Cycling on the footway approaching a toucan crossing and shared-use path in park, or on the road including a bus lane signed for cycling? See also #87520.

One assumes that this dropped kerb and dilapidated road marking is so cyclists can leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing ahead to cross to NCN69 path, but what the heck is that No Cycling sign all about? Does it apply to the roa ... [more]

No zebra crossing for getting across busy Hilmore Way.

Just a sign to warn motorists of cycle path users crossing Hilmore Way. No zebra crossing.

A pointless bit of cycle diversion onto and off the path. As you can see from the photo, there is a toucan crossing, cyclists are it seems expected to use that all the way across, then make their way back into traffic off the shared-use ... [more]

The only excuse for this path is that there is an excellent off-road path running parallel not far from the road. For people accessing properties on the road though, or those crossing it to get to the path, the road itself is extremely bus ... [more]

Cycle routes ending at a Cyclists Dismount sign.

Link between Lancaster Canal towpath and Caton (Lune valley) cycle path - carry your bike down the steps
