40715Photo #40715The road here on this part of Sandycombe Rd is down to one lane for traffic moving in both directions. This is due to car parking spaces limiting space on an already thin but busy road. It leads to buses, cars and cyclists having to use one lane, along several hundred yards, to move through in both directions. Cars speed along ducking in out of spaces between parked cars to try and get down the road before on-coming traffic. This leads to dangerous conditions for cycling. There needs to be some road calming measures on this part of the road to slow traffic and the loss of some of the car parking space on the thinnest part of the road. This would allow for traffic to move slower and flow on both side of the road allowing safer conditions for cycling.Dutch-style cycleway:

135998Photo #135998The pavement here is already extremely narrow, but the council with its complete contempt for pedestrians has allocated pavement space for cars to park on. This means that the pavement is completely inaccessible to disabled people and anyone with a pushchair or pram. Pedestrians have to walk in the road. This whole road (South Worple Way) needs to be free of parked cars and it needs to be filtered so that it is impossible to drive more than a few metres along it. It's used by a lot of people walking and cycling to get between Barnes and East Sheen/Mortlake while avoiding the traffic and associated pollution on the Upper Richmond Road. It's not wide enough for cars so just get rid of them. It is insane to force pedestrians to walk in the road because cars are on the pavement.Track:
