Coldhams Lane Narrow advisory cycle lane

Access to Welwyn Garden City station is through a shopping centre - awful for cyclists and worse for wheelchair users (there is a ramp to the left to the top of the steps, then cycles can just about be carried down an escalator, but lifts a ... [more]

  • Icon 167604 Commuter traffic on pavements. Increased HMOs and lets mean parking is an issue and unsafe for children as parking on pavements and obscuring view to cross. Residents parking zone needed.

  • Icon 167494 Clarify the cycle route from the start of the footpath, ie. signpost the route along St Benedict Road heading South and where to go from here to reach Rails Lane. Perhaps upgrade the footpath to shared cycleway.
  • Icon 167493 Sir. Please have the Garden waste removed. Turning of Ringwood Road onto Green Lane (E42/37) Ferndown. Is a Bridleway. Half way along Green Lane and over the last 18 months, someone has been depositing Garden waste. The Bridleway has become narrower. My concern is, by the narrowing of this Bridleway (due to the Garden waste being deposited). It is having the effect of driving walkers to climb a small embankment to pass through and not allowing two people to walk side by side. The narrowing also affects of both horse riders and Cyclists, who have to do the same. As for wheel chairs and mobility users, not forgetting Families with a Childs Buggy. Making the Journey on the Bridleway impossible to continue. They are being denied a very pleasant Journey taking them away from a very busy main road, along Green Lane, leading into High mead Lane, then Joining the Footpath/Cycleway on Ham Lane, or vice-versa from Ham Lane back to Green Lane.

  • Icon 167408 Pavement too narrow for wheelchair
  • Icon 167373 This is a very wide road with narrow pavements. The high volume of traffic on the road generally travels well in excess of the 20mph speed limit. Most residents have front gardens, however most leave their bins on pavements obstructing half of all pavement space. Bins should be stored in front gardens and this should be enforced by the council. The bins are a public nuisance and an obstruction of the public highway. The road is unnecessarily inhospitable to pedestrians and especially risky for children who could easily tumble off the obstructed pavements and into the road. There are also very few places to cross the road and additional pelican crossings should be installed, particularly to enable access to and from the park.
