126800Photo #126800There is no cycle lane southbound. The northbound cycle way has obstacles built in making it far safer not to use them and cycle past these obstacles on the main carriageway. The obstacles need removing to allow a straight, continuous cycleway from the Ainslie Street round-a-bout to Park RoadCycleway:

126791Photo #126791The current cycle lane here (southbound) is not fit for purpose. It is safer to cycle on the road to the annoyance of motorised transport. The junctions where the cycle lane crosses (ASDA, Argos, Farmfoods) are dangerous for cyclists to use due to the high volume of traffic using these junctions. The solution is to give priority to the cycling lane over the junctions (just as the main road has).Cycleway:

126788Photo #126788Cycle lane needed from end of existing cycle lane at junction of Jute Road, along Ironworks Road, along Phoenix Road to join the A590 at the Fire Station. This will help BAE workers to commute from a large section of the town.Cycleway:

126782Photo #126782This is a new road layout which has made it more difficult and dangerous for cyclists. Cycling infrastructure needs adding to make it safe for cyclists to navigate this junction.Cycleway:

126780Photo #126780The cycle lane stops abruptly here. Cycling workers travelling to/from BAE need good, safe access. The cycling lane needs to be extended from where it stops to Bridge Road.Cycleway:

126779Photo #126779A safe, separate cycling access to BAE is needed from Walney. This is a VERY busy road with no cycling provision. Safe cycling lanes are needed here to encourage BAE workers to cycle to work.Cycleway:

126770Photo #126770On Abbey Road, SW bound, the cycle lane finishes at Park Drive. A safe, separate cycle lane is needed between Park Drive and Ramsden Square to allow cyclists to access the town centre.Cycleway:

126760Photo #126760Travelling from Barrow to Ulverston by bike can be achieved using fairly good and flattish lanes, avoiding the A590 BUT there is a section from London Road to Pennington Lane which requires cycling along the A590 in Lindal. The road is narrow and heavy goods vehicles are passing cyclists at 40mph and because of the narrowness of the road, FAR too close. A cycle lane/safe lane is needed to connect the cycle crossing at London Road (excellent) to Pennington Lane in both directions.Cycleway:

2. The trees too often close the cycle lanes with overhanging brances. The Council should keep the lanes clear of both branches and debris/slippery mud.

121895Photo #121895Rating Lane serves 3 large education facilities and also has Barrow's largest primary school at the bottom of the road. The current cycle paths are on both sides of the road and during school drop off/pick up times are inaccessible due to parked cars.

I propose building a two lane cycle way on one side of the road only. This could then allow cycles to go both ways or for people to cycle two abreast. It could be protected from the road by a raised kerb and would be wide enough to get a street cleaner along. This would massively improve the cycle to school journey and encourage cycling for young people.
