152598Photo #152598On E-Scooters:
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
Greenpeace agree with this idea.
For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.
This Solution does not apply to High Streets and yes more Zebra Crossings will be needed to be installed on busier Roads, making those Roads, ‘Semi Pedestrianized’. Some Pavements will have to be Green and Blue, but most are wide enough, with Pedestrians able to cross the Road to a complete Green Pavement via the new Zebra Crossings. Pedestrians safety, E-Scooter Safety ‘must’ come first, ahead of the ‘Car’.
The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
I have had a great agreeable response; please ask your friends and public for their opinion.

141908Photo #141908Cars park half on pavement over quite a long stretch - not enough space for pedestrians to socially distance when passing one another.
Maybe a parking space could be blocked off every other car or every 2 cars to allow passing space for pedestrians.
Though I'm not sure how buggies, especially double ones, can get through here without having to walk in the road.

141452Photo #141452Cars sometimes park on the pavement (on the actual pavement where people need to walk, not in the designated parking spots outside the shops), leaving only a small gap (under a metre wide) for pedestrians to try and pass.
Having parking spots on the pavement isn't very safe anyway, as cars drive across and along the pavement, making it unsafe and unpleasant for pedestrians to walk along that stretch of pavement.

140331Photo #140331Remove the brick arch under the rail bridge when it is renovated, and deepen and widen the passage way to give both the road users and pedestrians more space, and improve visibility round the bend for drivers. Currently dangerous for both, too narrow, esp for wheelchairs and prams. This would allow the 403 and 412 bus routes, and lorries, to use it again as well, making the nearby Sussex Road much safer for pedestriansTrack:

133338Photo #133338The temporary adjustment to pavement use here is quite a weak solution. the council has added 50m length of barriers in the cycle lane for pedestrians, but have not included any provision for cycling. a really poor and half hearted attempt.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133336Photo #133336This whole stretch of cyclelane is so dangerous. Cars are parked either encroaching into it, or within 1mm of it. As a result, it is impossible to ride safely in it and cyclists need to be in the main lane. This leads to conflict with fast moving motor vehicles. How about a properly segregated and protected cycle lane? not a shared path though - let those who walk keep the footpathCycleway:

132907Photo #132907One of the very few cycle lanes in Croydon with a solid line to delineate the lane. However the lane is heavily overgrown making it near impossible to stay in safely. Cut vegetation, widen the lane. change sight lines so that vehicles in side streets can see without sticking their cars out into the cycle laneCycleway:
Problem

132906Photo #132906Ridiculous contra-flow cycling lane to navigate the junction. Despite all this effort to add east to west lane and level crossing, the bike lane ends immidately after junction (on poplar walk). Lane should be extended o North End and beyond. main junction should be modified to remove sharp bends in cycle lane.Cycleway:

132900Photo #132900This is a very narrow road with peak hours (and non peak) usually obstructed by delivery vehicles. The cycle lane is scary to use as cars often speed past and cut into the lane to avoid passing vehicles (who are avoiding parked cars/trucks)Cycleway:

132170Photo #132170Dropped kerbs in the middle of the Triangle would allow Quietway style cycling between Bedwardine Road, St Aubyn's Road, Stoney Lane & Woodland Road. Pavements need to be widened on the Triangle which leaves little room for cycle lanes - providing well signposted 2 way cycleroutes through the middle would discourage people from cycling the wrong way along the triangle pavements which some unfortunately do at the moment.Cycleway:

Problem
cycleways
128347Photo #128347People drive much too fast along here (it's supposed to be a 20 but 40 is common and sometimes 50). So residents park on the pavement so their cars don't get damaged. But that leaves no space for pedestrians to get past with social distancing (or wheelchairs/buggies). Need to narrow the road, put in build outs to protect residents' cars, create more pavement space for pedestrians, put in raised-table Zebra crossings to slow people down to 20, and tighten up the "flare" on the junctions which encourages speeding.Track:

118511Photo #118511There are multiple traffic islands along this road, designed to help pedestrians cross/slow down cars.
