155487Photo #155487I’d like a bicycle shed (hangar) here like they have in Forest Gate and Hackney (one of the green sheds). This would be good for the neighbourhood as far more people are cycling, and a lot of the residents live in converted flats, so don’t have space for a bike. There is a clear need for residential storage.Cycle parking:

152852Photo #152852There is a space here beneath a bridge which is often used by fly tippers. If we could replace these with bike stands it would be great as 1. They are under a bridge, so are naturally covered; 2. They would be used by people visiting the local businesses under the arches.Cycle parking:

There is many cyclists in this area and most of them and my neighbours struggle with storing their bikes.
Britannia Village has been build many years ago and I don't think that cycling storage concept existed back then in our area but now it would be super convenient and helpful.

133458Photo #133458Greenway crossing over the main road needs improvement. Now a busy crossroads of Quietway 22/London Cycle Network Route 16 and CS2 yet traffic signals make you wait ages even with no traffic and the central reservation is not large enough to hold all those wishing to cross at busy times.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133257Photo #133257The road splits into a left turn lane, meaning cyclists heading straight on have to move to the centre lane. This is unsafe as motorists often don't seem to notice the road markings or understand the purpose of this movement! Better signage and markings needed or a realistic safer alternative for cyclists.Cycleway:

133255Photo #133255Factory Road is a direct route from North Woolwich to Silvertown. A cycle path ends part way into Factory Road at the Silvertown end, but the rest of the road to here is of poor quality surface and cars speed along here as it is long and straight. Ideal solution would be to widen the existing pavement slightly, make it a shared foot/cycle way with raised tables at the junctions with side turnings to make motorists aware.Cycleway:

127906Photo #127906This road could be a quiet alternative to Woodgrange Road, to access Forest Gate station from Romford Road. It is full of parked cars, reducing space for cycling and it is also a rat run, often drivers trying to bully cyclists off their safe positioning.

127299Photo #127299The pavement on the park side approaching the park gate is too narrow for people to socially distance - a number of times I've either had to back up to cross over or if the road is clear, swerve into it to avoid others. It could do with being widened if space allows.Track:

127294Photo #127294Pinch point between pedestrians and pavement cyclists. It isn't always possible to cross the road to make way for cyclists as there's a raised barrier by the station and though the pavement doesn't seem to be an official cycle route, when using the pavement cyclists seem to view it as their domain. The road is too narrow to widen the pavement so there needs to be clearer indication for everyone of whether it's a negotiated space or whether the pavement is pedestrians-only.Track:
