The entrance is not flush so can't cycle in to the park from Honour Lea Ave - have to use the Zebra Crossing which has a small turning circle

Hard to access the cycleway if moving with the flow of traffic because it is on the other side of the road, on the pavement.

South Eastern should allow tandems off peak on the London to Kent Javellin trains so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with their partners. Bad for tourism!

'New' painted cycle lane is awful, dangerous, filled with potholes, time restricted. This means it's very difficult to use. The road is very wide - please make a proper segregated cycle lane to link to Stratford's excellent cycle lanes!

Make this area cycle friendly with segregated cycle lane

Dangerous and difficult to navigate this junction on a bike. Better cycle lane needed

The rumble paving along the Greenway is not consistent with the lane markings. ie cross path rumbles on the cycle side and in-line strips on the walking side.

To cross the A117 cyclists and pedestrians are forced to wait for 5 separate sets of lights. Most of these are at red even when the traffic light sequence means no cars are going to pass.

CS3 should be signposted to leave the A13 here cross at the footbridge and proceed along Bow Creek before turning toward Sorrel Lane.

Segregated cycle lane needed along Barking road, as cars park along the ones marked on the road and this would also serve to make cycling feel safer and be more accessible to the community

Finish off cycle way! quietway 6 was funded by TFL and Newham are still 2 years behind Redbridge who have completed their parts on Forest drive and onwards!

24 bus lanes would be a quick and easy fix to allow more space for cycling -together with parking restriction enforcement (very poor at present!)

Heavy traffic so highly polluted road, limited space for cycling and high speeds from careless drivers

Cycling on the south side towards the city, the road surface is so deteriorated that it's really stressful and dangerous to cycle here

The Greenway is very busy now since March. Two cycle lanes are needed and two footpaths are needed.

Surface of cycle lane needs to be repaired. It is dangerously rutted

The London Cycle Network Route 16 is routed over a Zebra crossing onto a narrow pavement then sharply back on itself back up to the Greenway. This junction needs serious improvement. The path up to the Greenway is also very narrow.

Greenway 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 t ... [more]

The 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 ... [more]

A cycle path from Silvertown towards North Woolwich simply ends here. Pavement should be extended and made into a shared path right along Factory Road to North Woolwich.

Factory 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 st ... [more]

Give greenway priority over this access road.

For East/West travel this is the main way to access the Greenway there are frequently cars speeding and parked cars

The whole of Romford Road needs a segregated cycle lane. Should upgrade CS2 from Stratford all the way to Ilford. And should consider santander bikes along the route to encourage cycling.

All hospitals should various cycle ways that converge on them to allow patients and staff to safely travel in. Public health

Street is plenty wide enough to have really big, safe cycle lanes

Make this cycle path safe from mugging. My employer encouraged me to drive because the 'greenway was not safe'. Tell the police to do something and make this safe.

Convert junction to a Protected Roundabout with cycleway priority. Every child at Chobham Academy should be able to cycle to school safely.

Too many parking spaces for car. No cycling lanes nor spaces to park a bike

Cycle lane needed southbound between Stratford Broadway and Barking Road. Inadequate safe north/ south routes in area. Also road repairs needed to make safe.

Too many parked cars,blind corner, driver often take the blind corner fast,on the wrong side of the road, making it risky for cycling. Remove car parking at the bend.

The pavement is wide, which is nice, but due to parked cars and no end of traffic jams, there is not enough space to cycle here safely between Forest Gate station and Romford Road.

This 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 saf ... [more]

Pelly Road used to be a quiet alternative to the parallel, manic Upton lane. Now there are so many parked cars, that thye rduce the road to a single lane, resulting in close passes or drivers driving into the cyclist on the wrong side of th ... [more]

Dropped kerb here to enter or exit the cycle path.

If you come from Plasitow on the Greenway and want to continue on the other side, to cross this junction on a bike or on foot, you have to wait at about 6 red lights. Design a more direct route to cross and allow the use of the bus lane.

No safe cycling possible as roads aren't wide enough

Throughout this stretch of the Greenway the gates when you get to the road area are quite difficult to negotiate and maintain social distancing. Some thought needs to be given to all of the gates along the stretch so there is less need to ... [more]

Extend this cycle path to run the length of the road and allow for a true quiet way

Segregated cycle paths to connect schools along quiet ways and tie in with proposed school streets.

Katherine road is neither cycle nor pedestrian friendly with constant illegal and pavement parking. a segregated cycle lane is essential along this road. to connect Romford rod all the way down to barking road as an alternative or ideally i ... [more]

Is it possible to make a cycle connection here up to the flats from Romford road by allowing cyclists two way access to this junction onto Hampton rd

This is a major junction and needs to be reformatted to favour cyclists and pedestrians, ideally with a cycle crossing point integrated into the design or a raised table multiway crossing including diagonals

Introduce segregated cycleway along school side as an east to west quiet way

Cycle lane needed, plus traffic calming measures. Motorists often speeding.

Dropped kerb and toucan crossing need to be installed to connect Mitre Road with Stephen's Road for cyclists.

Cycleways at this junction need clearing of street furniture and repainting.

Dropped curb here for cyclist always covered by parked cars because parking box goes across it. Double yellows needed here.

Remove level differences to allow north-south cycling here.

Dismount sign here but should be made into shared use to connect between Greenway and A13 crossing points without dismounting.

Dropped kerb needed here to join carriageway for cyclists travelling from Whalebone Lane and turning left into West Ham Lane.

Shared use pavement required to connect Whalebone Lane with pedestrian crossing on West Ham Lane. Should be Toucan crossing.

A cycle lane is marked with paint, but it is also allocated as parking spaces. This means there is no usable cycle lane as it is full of parked cars!

Narrow lanes, fast traffic and no cycle lanes separate from car lanes.

There is ample room and demand here for a segregated cycleway. It would allow cyclists to access CS3 and the Greenway from beckton safely and help them act as an alternative to the DLR.

All traffic lights on the Greenway could be rephased so that once the button is pushed cyclists and pedestrians don't have to wait as long as they currently do. With increased usage, this will really improve the experience of using the Gre ... [more]

Contraflow cycle access is not recognised on maps. Can this be updated to enable people to find this route?

Which cycleway is in use? The one on the pavement punctuated with signs and bus stops or the one on the road with the potholes? Needs to be made clear and efficient.

Crossing point here is dangerous due to vehicles not sticking to the 20mph limit and restricted visibility due to the curves of the road.

The cycleway surfacing is badly damage and needs repairing.

Please add signage from Greenway to indicate that this is Prince Regent Lane. There is linear signage on the Greenway but no exit signage.

Please add signage from Greenway to indicate that this is Barking Road. There is linear signage on the Greenway but no exit signage.

Please add signage from Greenway to indicate that this is Balaam Street. There is linear signage on the Greenway but no exit signage.

This one way street connects to a cycle path, should be two way for cyclists.

The traffic lights are in the wrong place to allow a right turn into Earlham Grove on the cycle contraflow lane.

The underpass is closed off, please reopen.

Physically segregated cycle path to aid with sustainable commuting out to Barking in the east and Canning Town in the west.

Make Katherine road, Shrewsbury Road, high street north and green street one way and stick in cycle lanes and wider pavements on the reclaimed space.

Physically Segregated cycle lane to connect Ilford with Stratford.

Can this be a proper cycleway along here - as cars permanently seem surprised by bicycles coming the other way. I went over the bonnet of a lorry here last year

can you open the cycleway here - and extend it the whole way along capel road

travelling up the woodford rd and turning into earlham grove is incredibly tight - with cars parked double the whole way along. A cycle lane and better parking restrictions would be great

High st South is a great link to the Greenway and cs3 for cyclists but traffic is fast (too fast) and aggressive which will put all bar the most confident riders off and force some onto the narrow pavements. CS3 and the Greenway are great ... [more]

Ladies and gents, I give you the Olympic Legacy https://t.co/uCEm50oe5w

The Temple Mills cycle lane water feature is fully stocked. @wfcouncil @NewhamLondon https://t.co/IRq9rATGlM

Poor merge back to road

Shared-use with poles in cycleway but plenty of space to do things properly instead

Shared-use with poles in cycleway but plenty of space to do things properly instead

The new CS2 segregated lane from stratford to bow roundabout. Please don't dismiss this and please read on.

Barriers on the Greenway in east london make running cycle rides hard work and slow. Would wouldn't get this in a city or country that properly gets cycling.

Cycle lane with cars parking in it every few yards.

Useless signage, and a horribly narrow cycle lane. At last we're beginning to see signs of the end of this sort of rubbish facilities - in London at least.
