The road should be completely free of parking in what is a congested area. To facilitate adequate safe cycling and walking the road would be best closed to traffic altogether.Cycleway:

70643Photo #70643Another suggestion I have about Burnham on Sea which I recently visited, is providing a basic simple well surfaced shared use path between Stoddens Road and Brent Knoll village. Locals tell me this is known as Corkscrew Lane? It already exists as a right of way. I understand that Brent Knoll is a popular route towards the moors and Weston beyond... why not put a simple low cost path here, and pop up a few simple signs? Back in Essex, authorities would jump at the chance to create something like that to furthe cycle use. Why dont you?Cycleway:

With cycle tourism on the increase, is provides big business potential. So why no decent cycle parking here?Cycle parking:

Location: Axbridge (England, United Kingdom)

Bloody dangerous. This is a one-way road for motor traffic. That white line marks the edge of the contraflow bike lane. It might have been an acceptable width once, but not now the foliage has taken over. Once again demonstrates that "Health and Safety" and "Risk Assessment" doesn't apply when it might inconvenience the motorist.

46539Photo #46539Bridgwater, Marsh Lane, Crossway Swing Bridge to Somerset Bridge Railway Bridge.
OS Explorer 140, 309353 to 311357 Approx
I’m looking for advice on maintenance of a route used by many cyclists to commute between the housing estates in the North of Bridgwater to the industrial units at Huntworth Industrial Park and the Thistle Park and Showground Road industrial units plus ‘quiet road’ access to Bridgwater College accepting that the main A road route through Bridgwater is very intimidating to say the least.
This route is also used by many pedestrians, school children and cyclists for leisure, currently the route is in a very bad and dangerous state namely large pot holes obscured by water. I was carrying drainage work of my own yesterday and numerous cyclists commented on the dangerous condition and thought with the promotion of ‘cycling to work’ and with more and more industrial units being constructed in the Huntworth area we may be able to improve the conditions or at least provide a safe route through.
I see commuters cycling early in the morning and evenings and have concerns for their safety, one other question is, who would have ‘duty of care’ for this stretch of lane?
I know the Southern Distributer Route is planned but this project appears to be being pushed further and further back to the future.
I look forward to receiving your advice,
David Williams

45051Photo #45051Hi, I was wondering if you could give an update on the planned extension of the Strawberry Line - Safe Path For All, especially from Cheddar to Wells and beyond. I believe that a golden opportunity exists for all disused rail track to be utilized for safe off road use by walkers, Cyclists and mobility, before it is lost to development of roads and/or housing. Somerset with it's diverse landscape and suitability for Cycling, could be the Best Cycling County in GB if all the possible routes were exploited ie; Rail Track, Tow Paths, Single Track Lanes, River and water ways, as these nearly all follow reasonably flat terrain with the bonus of beautiful countryside, which could be enjoyed by locals, tourists and commuters in complete safety. I also think that we should have a national campaign/petition for all country lanes without central lane markings, to be regraded with a blanket speed limit of 30mph, rather than the ludicrous National Speed limit signs currently in force. The majority of these lanes can only be safely navigated at 20 to 30mph and safe sensible road users would negotiate as conditions seemed fit, but the minority can kill or seriously injure, by using these roads as their shortcuts, racetracks, or just ignorance or disregard for other users.
Sorry to have a bit of a rant, but hopefully you can understand my reasoning and will support the Safe Routes For All concept.
I look very much to your reply, and thank you for all of the good work done so far.
Yours faithfully,
John Robinson.

41971Photo #41971Could you please confirm what the current staus of Winscombe Drove is? It would be a really useful link route for mountain bikers if upgraded from footpath to bridleway and I understand half of the path has been approved as bridleway by North Somerset Council, but the other half is awaiting a decision by Somerset CC? If you're able to reply, could you confirm if this is correct & if so when a decision is likely to be made? Many thanks.Cycleway:

14618Photo #14618Burnham on Sea's "No Cycling Zone Fine £500.00 Maximum"

The placement of this sign surely refers only to the footway does it not? But it is clearly visible to road users and might make them think that cyclists have no right to be there either.

Incidentally other "NO" signs nearby include "No Diving" and "No paddling" but with no concomitant threat of a fine.

14617Photo #14617I saw this sign Highbridge, Somerset during the summer holidays.
Is this an admission that these roads are hostile for cycling? Is it an apology to cyclists using these roads? Surely there should be no need warn motorists of a cycle friendly zone? And if there was one, I didn't see where it started and finished.
