Pavement too narrow

Pavement too narrow and car’s speeding

Traffic lights need to account for those of us cycling a little slower than your average car!

Hard to cycle in winter / bad weather. Tarmac would be great

Better signage to locate the cycle path past the Nestle factory.

The link from Egginton Road to the Great Northern Greenway is very narrow. When the nettles and brambles are growing it can be very uncomfortable for cyclists and walkers to negotiate. Widening or more frequent maintenance required.

Marston Lane is single width in many places and needs filtering at the river to prevent it being used by cars and vans, the lane is very popular with walkers and cyclists access maintained for the river

Cycle lanes needed each side of road from Hatton to Hilton a large number of new housing is being built which will increase traffic

A commonly used road by cyclists from Etwall to Williington that requires cycle lanes on both sides

The road narrows here, so the east-bound cycleway disappears, shortly before the roundabout, also just opposite the central refuge. There is no cycleway on the west-bound side of Cadley Hill Road, and the road is rather narrow. Can it be … [more]

The footbridge over the railway line is steep, with no channel for bike wheels. To access the SUSTRANS path, you have to dice with death on the roundabout on the A444. Please can you improve the bridge, to make it possible to get bikes … [more]

The road is in poor condition and unsuitable for cycling safely

Road surface needs serious improvement. Heavily used by cyclists. Dangerous potholes.

It is a main route to EMA busy main road with no facilities for safe cycling so the huge workforce have no choice but to drive

The left hand lane into the estate leaves cyclists going straight on through the traffic lights vulnerable. Speed limit is 40mph here but frequently exceeded. Suggest cycle route and extending the 30mph speed limit on Pastures Hill and … [more]

A bridge for cyclists and pedestrians would link the bridal paths allowing a car free route between Repton and Willington

Needs dedicated cycle path as cars enter roundabout quickly

This is a quiet road for cyclists but the uneven surface and numerous postholes make it a challenge for new cyclists. Please repair the road surface

There is no way to cross the A38. A cycle bridge / tunnel linking Findern Ln with Doles Lane would open commuter routes between Etwall / Hilton and south side of Derby (eg Rolls-Royce)

Narrow cycle path is directly adjacent to 80mph heavy traffic. Draft from lorries could could unbalance riders. Needs a fence to separate cycles and traffic. Also need better arrangements to cross the slip roads.

Improved access needed to A38 cycle path. Current arrangement is dangerous (you need to stop on the roundabout, cycle on a very narrow pavement against the traffic on the slip road, then cross 2 lanes of 70mph traffic at the bottom of the … [more]

Make some of see narrow small lanes ‘green lanes’ where cyclists and pedestrians have priority, lower speed limit.

There needs to be a separate cycle track to the northeast, to keep cyclists away from motor traffic. The road here is too narrow for safe cycling in traffic. I was told that there are plans for a separate cycle track, but that the land … [more]

Pavement to become cycle path

The pavement from the river path to Elvaston Castle should be widened for cycling and walking. The speed limit on the road should be reduced and traffic calming and signage consedered.

Ambaston Lane is very heavily used by cyclists ans walkers. Restrict access to residents, install traffic calming and a reduced speed limit

A proper shared access path is needed here to link the B5010 to Elvaston Lane

The pavement is too narrow to allow cyclists and pedestrians (although many do use it). A much wider shared path is needed)

Toad surface marked with white cycle outlines as if it is a cycle way from Thulston to Ambaston and in to Shardlow. Road surface in dangerous state of disrepair. Re surface and add central speed bumps for motorists using as a fast cut … [more]

Cycle path ends too quickly after traffic island putting cyclists into fast moving traffic. When trying to access cycle path and underpass have to cross fast moving traffic from dual carriageway. Widen pavement to be accessible also as … [more]

The B5008 pavement is very narrow, and switches from one side of the road to the other twice. A separate cyleway from Willington to Repton is in the Repton parish plan.

Make Pastures Estate 20 mph for safer family and childrens cycling.



Consider making a safe cycleway, or just clean the overgrown vegetation so it is accessible

Widen the path to provide safe cycle way from Mickleover to Etwall. To include entry and exit points at both islands.

This is a dangerous junction. Existing cycle lane has to cross the A50 slip road. This route is used by lots of John Port Pupils cycling from Hilton to Etwall.

This is a dangerous junction. Existing cycle lane has to cross the A50 slip road. This route is used by lots of John Port Pupils cycling from Hilton to Etwall.

Existing painted cycle lane is useless as cars park in it. Physical barriers should be installed. Safer cycling is required for John Port pupils.

The path is unpassable for any bike besides an all terrain mountain bike, a flat path is needed to enable cycling along this train to link up to the Derwent cycleway from Raynesway

It's nice that a cycle path exists along this section along the A6, however its implementation leaves a lot to be desired. Firstly, the path is very close to the carriageway with no barrier, secondly the cycle lane (green section) is too … [more]
