Abbotsford Road and the path next to the railway line from Mersey Road to Sunnyside road provide access between Blundellsands & Crosby station and residential streets south-east of it in Crosby/Waterloo. But continuous busy rush-hour traffi ... [more]

Narrow path for cyclists and pedestrians, busy with dog walkers, no space to pass safely.

A cycle way all the way into Liverpool would be great as it appears for a bit but is not the whole way and the road is too busy but the pavements are not great to cycle on either

Ince woods is not wide enough for cycling. Need a designated cycle path from Formby by pass through to Thornton/ Crosby

Cycling through very busy road, pavement very narrow and doesn't exist in some places plus very overgrown narrowing area to cycle on and hazardous because of heavy fast traffic

To narrow for safe distancing and to pass safely with other cyclists and pedestrians

This is a cycle path and very narrow to pass and for walkers too

Narrow for cyclists and walkers

Stanley Road could do with cycle lanes to help improve the route into Liverpool.

Almost impossible to cross this 60mph dual carriageway some sort of crossing required

There is a school on this street. To prevent rat running and encourage cycling this street should be closed off at one end. Indeed this should be considered for all residential streets (even those without a school) in order to create safe ... [more]

Southbank Road should be blocked off with bollards (only accessible by bicycle or on foot) at the junction with Cemetery Road to prevent rat running to the Lidl roundabout.

Cyclists should be able to cycle down Chapel Street - at present this is illegal and so cyclists are forced onto the surrounding and often dangerous roads.

Lord Street should be pedestrianized acting as a pleasurable boulevard such as Las Ramblas in Barcelona, allowing pedestrians, cyclists, and emergency vehicles to use with service roads located in the periphery.

Dedicated cycle lane is needed along Scarisbrick New Road as many cyclists use this route to the town centre and KGB college, Hospital, etc.

Bus stop is narrow, only half a bus fits in when stopping and thus making it dangerous to overtake parked buses, when their stopped there, widen bus stop

Kerb line in the road has a nib as two lanes pass, of which are narrow, causing cars to wander from the outside lane to the inside or when in the inside to virtually on the kerb line, cutting up cyclists. Smooth out the kerb line 'bend'

This cycle path is very overgrown. Two way cycling is impossible

Hightown to Formby path too narrow To allow for distancing

The new lane markings are dangerous for cyclists, when approaching the junction from lydiate lane. Due to the formation of a left turn only lane, cyclist are pushed in the centre of the road to go straight ahead (towards Maghull) you don't ... [more]

Path and better lighting reduce speed limit

Move the cycle path off the seawall and take some of the massive of pavement for a properly cycle path near the road. Current path is used by pedestrians and is regularly blocked by chairs etc while also covered in sand.

The cycleway is barely wide enough for two bikes as it is, one side is overgrown and the other is mainly loose stone. Very easy to clash handlebars with bikes going opposite way. But it's also used by pedestrians, widen the whole thing. ... [more]

End of shared-use footway alongside road, and through barrier for path to Banks Road

Good eyesight required to make out sign from far side of junction!

A narrow and unusual cycle lane right next to a line of bollards over the Marine Way Bridge

Cyclists meant to take overgrown route to the right

Cycle track too narrow to overtake!

Narrow cycle track, but the rough bit to the side assists with passing. No use for overtaking though (see #54912).

A Cyclists Dismount sign at a corner next to the roundabout

Car parked on NCN62 cycle track

25 miles to Liverpool, 24 minutes to Formby, on the same sign! Also, no path across the grass between the cycle track and the road for the right turn.

The breakaway path is actually unnecessary since the gate has a bypass accessible directly from the main path See also #54859

Whatever the sign said, it said it in really small type!

Abrupt end of cycle track, just where motorists will be looking the other way. Narrow footway continues into Formby to the left.

Gate and barrier where path meets residential road.

A barrier at the end of the car park.

Sand overwhelming the path

Detour around fence

Canal access from Marsh Lane is via a spiral staircase

A narrow path under bridge, with poor sightlines. Not an unusual problem with canal towpaths.

NCN62 takes a right turn here, but there is only a tiny sticker visible on the approach!

The NCN62 connection between the canal path and Ormskirk Road is via a flight of steps, although a wheeling ramp has been provided.

The NCN62 connection to the canal path is via a flight of steps

Give Way to oncoming vehicles which you can't see. Maybe I should have taken a photo of the car reversing back as I was putting the camera away!

A blind corner on NCN62 path at Aintree

The cycle lane jumping from the footway to the roadway, between taxi rank and bus stop. See also #54901.

Another barrier on the path!
