179459Photo #179459The northeast-bound existing cycle lane here is completely ignored by car drivers who form two lanes to turn right and left immediately when entering from Cross Deep and Heath Road. There are no markings to merge, both roads widen to 2 lanes at the junction but there is barely enough space for 2 lanes of traffic and definitely not enough space for 2 lanes + a cycle lane.

The lane should be made segregated to force traffic to merge, or the entire road should be widened and marked to allocate 2 car lanes + 1, or possibly continue the bus/bike lanes that exist along both Heath Rd and Cross Deep

179458Photo #179458Between 90 and 115 Strawberry Vale (A310) in Twickenham, there are several parking bays on the east side that straddle the road and pavement. Cars and vans (presumably of residents) are continually parked there, but they park over the painted lines and block the cycle lane. The cycle lane is very narrow here, but because it exists, drivers do not attempt to move over to avoid cyclists and get frustrated when cyclists have to leave the cycle lane to avoid the parked cars.

I assume the parking behaviour is well intended to give space to pedestrians and it may seem like there is plenty of space for a bike but there simply is not.

Additionally some vans that park are too wide to park there and simply cannot fit inside the allocated space.

145222Photo #145222Hampton Road in Teddington has always been pretty busy but, since the start of the pandemic, there has been a steady increase of car traffic. Terrorized cyclists often have to cycle on the pavement and this, in turn, scares the walkers. The air quality of the area has worsened dramatically.
