The cycle lane bollards are causing confusion among motorists, especially at roundabouts. This is making using the cycle lane more hazardous. May I suggest we adopt a scheme based upon that used in the Netherlands, where they use small conc ... [more]

Combined cycle and bus lane here, but no cycle detector on the lights. Please 1. provide cycle detector and 2. create a left-tun cycle lane, not signal-controlled, so that cycles can link with Old Norwich Rd and NCN48.

Please make this a cycleway cross the park - change the gate, surface the path and ramp the access.

Shared bus and cycle lane, but no cycle detector on lights, so have to wait for a bus to get through. Please 1. install cycle detector, or 2. provide through cycle lane, as cycles don't need to merge with the main carriageway lane.

Close Chalon St to motorised traffic

Road closed to through traffic

Road closed to through traffic

The cycle lane takes you on and off the pavement, and eventually just ends, ejecting into the traffic just as the road narrows. It is also on the left of the road at the start of the one way system, but on the right at the end. It may act ... [more]

Frequent abuse by motor vehicles on the foot/cycle way. This may frequently require cycle and foot users to deviate into the road and present real danger. All because the authorities are too lazy to do anything. Situation for all of residen ... [more]

A proper cycleway not some painted lines on very narrow road with buses coming the other way

Could the whole river way be officially two way for bikes? it seems crazy that it is only one way. It needs a change in priority and protection at the Dock St/ Werstead Rd junction.

Cycle lane required on Bixley Road to join up with Heath Road and Felixstowe Road cycle lanes

The existing cycle lane leaving town is nothing more than a line on the road . It's poorly surfaced and runs through the drains meaning you have to leave the 'protected' area. There is more than enough space to make a shared path totally se ... [more]

Remove the barriers that prevent cycle route that connects residential area to cycle tracks on London Road, a key route into town.

The junction of Park Road and The avenue should be closed to motor traffic to close a rat run and make the north/south walking route more pleasant.

Close Bramford Lane at the railway bridge to help reduce rat running. Bramford Lane is meant to be a cycle route, however very unpleasant to walk and cycle along.

This 20mph road has seen a huge increase in cyclists and pedestrians since March. A dedicated cycle lane will continue to keep this road safe. for cyclists.

River path is very narrow and surface is getting worn down. Needs widening and resurfacing

Connection between town and waterfront needs improvement. This area is a tight bottleneck for pedestrians and cyclists having all to use the pavent on Stoke bridge and St Peters

Blind corner on bridge w inadequate footway on school route - close bridge to motor vehicles

Dangerous crossing - needs dedicated signal phase for cyclists between Freehold Rd and Marlborough rd

Make Ancaster Road a bus gate for walking, cycling, and buses only.

Close Highview Road to through motor traffic as it's a rat run, with some speeding traffic.

Close Jovian Way to through motor traffic as it's a rat run.

Close Milner Street to through motor traffic between Oxford Road and Rope Walk, as it's a rat run and on NCN 1.

I assume this is the area referred to below, where a cycleway has been built but can't be opened - www.eadt.co.uk/news/west-bank-new-cut-west-open-space-still-closed-by-abp-1-6472571

The cycle lanes in #Ipswich are pathetic at the best of times but this doesn't help! https://t.co/bZmCLGu7QB

Ipswich town centre has recently had one of its major junctions re-vamped and part of that work involved the design and build of this cycle lane. The lane is designed so that cyclists go up the inside of stopped buses and are expected to gi ... [more]

Shared-use cycle path emerges across pavement from behind a building.

Can I cycle or do I need to discount? @SuffolkSpokes anglia retail park http://t.co/S9ciwEZiFf

Bad bike rack design

Dual carriageway

Motor racing style hoarding

Ipswich quayside

The centre of Ipswich is dominated by motor traffic and has horrors like these painted hoardings which suggest the place is like a motor racing circuit.

Anti-pedestrian surface on this island - one of the worst ideas that transport planners have ever created. It just causes even more problems for walkers trying to cross here.

The cycle track just suddenly stops and leaves you lost, rather than taking you back on to the road. See also #49606 2013-05-12 11.48.47-2 Location: St. Johns, Ipswich (England, United Kingdom)

When you use cycle route 51 from Ipswich Town outwards to Needham Market you may have issues finding this sign. Don't get tempted to proceed on along the Gipping river or you'll endup in a horrible No-Go area where copper thieves hide about ... [more]

Route 51 of the National Cycle Network runs along this section of shared cycle path / pavement on West End Road, Ipswich. Cyclists and pedestrians alike will often find their route blocked by thoughtless lorry drivers who park on the cycle ... [more]

Patteson Road, Ipswich Location: St. Johns, Ipswich (England, United Kingdom) This car is regularly parked on this particular cycle lane. The cycle route connects Holywells Park to the waterfront.

Newbury Road, Ipswich Location: St. Johns, Ipswich (England, United Kingdom) Just by a park and playground (left) and close to a secondary and primary school on a main pedestrian route to the hospital (visible in the distance). Cunnin ... [more]

Crown Street, Ipswich Location: , Ipswich (England, United Kingdom) This car sticks out onto the pavement forcing pedestrians into road an puddles. Should this sort of thing be stopped? The cycle lane is covered in water. Is there ... [more]

Dropped Kerb please on Sirday Street Location: , Ipswich (England, United Kingdom) A bunch of dropped kerbs and cycle cut-throughs are needed all over this area as none were provided when the roads were blocked off.

Slippery surface on bridge approach

a bit more tarmac needed here

There is a cycle route off the left just ahead. It isn't signed at all.

The route heads off too the right. The sign is actually in the wrong place and is hidden to the left at this point

This sign only works for people heading south west fom Tuddenham Road. When going north up Westerfield Road it isn't visible until too late.
