44063Photo #44063Central Twickenham - Church Street leading in to King Street and Heath Road. A complete jumble of roads with heavy traffic, bus stops and islands. No cycle path at all. Cross Deep going south has a very inadequate cycle path but if you want to go west which entails using King Street followed by the Hampton Road or the Staines Road there is no provision for cyclists at all.Dutch-style cycleway:

Problem
dutchcycleways
43615Photo #43615The cycle lane on Cross Deep running from the junction with King Street up to Radnor Gardens on the side of the road nearest to the river is a particularly dangerous spot for cyclists. The part nearest to King St has car parking which does not allow enough room for cars to safely overtake bikes but they do it anyway. Further on the bike lane is narrow and bumpy and cars speed up and overtake too close. There should be a properly separated bike lane on this stretch, possibly similar to the one at the mini roundabout junction where Cross Deep meets Waldegrave Rd and Twickenham Rd.Dutch-style cycleway:

42690Photo #42690Bell Lane should have 'two-way traffic' signs. It is a two-way street but drivers often imagine it is one-way northbound and are hostile to cyclists riding in the other direction. (It was a one-way street between about 1970 & 1995).Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42689Photo #42689The Embankment should have 'two-way traffic' signs installed. Because Wharf Lane and Water Lane are one-way, drivers often wrongly believe The Embankment is also a one-way street westbound and are hostile to cyclists riding in the other direction.Dutch-style cycleway:

42682Photo #42682The footpath here linking Oldfield Rd & Staines Rd is very little used by pedestrians for most of the day and could easily be made a shared use path (possibly with a cycle ban for the short periods when it is often busy just before and after school start/finish times). This would connect with the existing shared-use path linking Staines Rd to Lower Hampton Rd to create a Hampton to Sunbury link.Dutch-style cycleway:

42631Photo #42631The shared footpath across the Thames on the A316 is a vital route, especially given the dangerous alternative across Richmond Bridge. However the marked cycle path fails to meet the London Cycling Standard, often shrinking to 100 cm wide. Moving the existing poor quality lighting and signage would enable easy upgrading.Dutch-style cycleway:

42630Photo #42630Exit from the Richmond Athletic Association (London Scottish Rugby) crosses the shared-use footpath and gives direct to the A316. Visibility is appalling, both for exiting cars and for passing cyclists.

42244Photo #42244CHALKERS CORNER. (Mortlake/North Sheen). Not a roundabout, but a particularly tricky junction for bicycles - unless you get off and walk over a set of pedestrian crossings with your bike. At present this is the best way of negotiating this junction (well for most cyclists anyway), but if more foresight was shown to including cycles then this junction would be much improved, and most people wouldn't feel the need to get off their bikes and walk over the series of crossings with their bike.Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42241Photo #42241RICHMOND CIRCUS. Almost impossible to use on a bike if you're coming from North Sheen (along the Lower Mortlake Road), and wish to then go round the roundabout to turn left onto Kew Road. Likewise if you're coming from Richmond Town Centre onto the roundabout, it can be dangerous if you wish to go straight over onto the Lower Mortlake Road as cars can come round fast to turn left into Kew Road - so you either cycle in the middle lane which can be dicey or you get off, walk over the pedestrian crossing at junction of Kew Road and Richmond Circus, and then get back on your bike once in Lower Mortlake Road. Not convenient and also quite dangerous for cycles. There must be a better way!Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42206Photo #42206Parts of this road do have a cycle lane, but amazingly it goes AROUND the parked cars, which is dangerous a) as cyclists are pushed further out into traffic and b) drivers opening car doors or pulling out can be lethal. This policy also sends out a message that parked cars are more 'valuable' than cyclists.Dutch-style cycleway:

Problem
dutchcycleways
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:
Problem

40618Photo #40618Travelling from Hampton Hill and turning right into the A312 (Uxbridge Road) , it is very difficult when cycling to pull into the right-hand lane due to the volume and speed of traffic behind.

40422Photo #40422Richmond Park is a haven for cyclists! There is a dedicated cycling path all around the park, and faster cyclists compete with cars on the road, often overtaking cars and exceeding the 20 mile speed limit or cycling 2 or 3 abreast slowing down the traffic even further. I am a keen cyclist and I don't drive, but I fear thoughtless cyclists who seriously annoy motorists with their non-adherence to road rules, give us all a bad reputation.Dutch-style cycleway:

40396Photo #40396On the south side of Mortlake Green cycle route 4 follows a road which is used as access and lorry parking for a timber yard and builders merchant. Every morning a forklift truck unloads the delivery lorries, completely blocking the road and paying no heed to cyclists trying to pass. Lorries should not be allowed to block the road and fork lifts to operate in this way on a marked cycle route. A safer alternative would be to re-site the cycle route further north down Sheen Lane to avoid this section of roadDutch-style cycleway:

40394Photo #40394Junction of Ship La and Lower Richmond Rd. Cycles cross using shared pedestrian crossing onto footpath. The view down Ship La is restricted by a high wall.
