Prune the hedge and clear the shared use pavement so as to be easier to cycle safely.

Create cycle route link to Panshanger Park via closed aerodrome.

Path was rebuilt wide enough for shared use but is not designated as a cycle route. Designate as cycle route from A1001 to Great North Road via Tesco.

Upgrade this path to allow cycling from Woods Ave to Streamwoods including entry to Oak View school. This will encourage cycling to school.

Nasty informal cycle crossing. Hard to see traffic to west because of hedge. Upgrade zebra to east of roundabout to toucan and divert cycle route.

New barrier to family and disabled cycling installed and should be significantly modified if not removed.

Barrier on the cycle path between Bridge Road and the old railway is a serious new barrier to families and the disabled on a national cycle route. Requires a major rethink and ideally should be removed as discriminatory.

Provide ramps down each side of White Bridge to facilitate crossing of Digswell Road and provide access to Ayot Greenway.

Make new cycle lanes two way to avoid un-necessary road crossings.

Make new cycle lanes two way to avoid un-necessary road crossings.

Cyclists enter and leave new cycle lanes from both sides. Present arrangement often requires cyclists to cross un-necessarily.

Road needs a proper surface to enable it to be more easily used to avoid the B197

Need at the very least an up hill cycle path off road here as car drivers want cyclists out of the way. B197 is not a nice place to cycle.

Complete the cycle way from Mt Pleasant Lane to Tesco. Needs space from road traffic over this bridge, which is underused normally so available.

Really dangerous cycling East on Bridge Road East and Heronswood Road

Extend the existing cycle path through the woods so that it goes under the White Bridge, through to the college car park and linking to College Way. This ought to be quite easy by using the existing railway line but would help connect exis ... [more]

Remove cycleway from road and allocate space on the ample footpaths either side of the carriageways.

Busy road which needs a safe cycle route to connect Cuffley to Potters Bar.

This section of Brockswood Lane should be closed to cars and made a bridleway. The lane has attractive views over the golf course and would quickly become a popular walking route - currently it has no footpath and a deregulated speed limit.

Crossing from Gypsy Lane to the south of the A414 (i.e. across A414) should be made safer for cyclists and pedestrians. E.g. safer places to wait on each side, traffic lights etc. Crossing the westbound lane in particular is almost imposs ... [more]

Reduce speed limits on B197 to make crossing safer. 40 mph max.

Cycle lane on southbound side of road just ends at this junction with the white line closing it off. Needs proper end of cycle lane treatment and signing.

Create a safe off road cycle route from Hunters Bridge to Campus West by reducing road widths which will slow traffic.

Create a cycle path from Stonehills to the cycle lanes on Hunters Bridge.

Zebra should be upgraded to a Tiger crossing to allow cycling and to restore the through cycle route across the Galleria car park.

The cycle path has been removed at this point so there is no through cycle route from St Albans Road West to the toucan crossing of the A1001.

We urgently need a cycle path along this road to encourage travel between Old Welwyn and Knebworth and beyond.

Upgrade to allow cycling to create a legal short cut to Onslow school from South Hatfield.

Link existing cycle route along Gresley Close and through carpark with the town centre - it basically disappears in the car park at the moment

Paths in the area between A1(M) and Green Lanes are all overgrown and need bushes pruning back.

Convert crossing of A1000 to a toucan and connect to the bridleway to Mill Green. Using the A414 cycle path to Gypsy Lane this then becomes a very cost effective and safe bypass to Ascots Lane.

Surface Bridleway from A1000 to Mill Green Museum and link to crossing at traffic lights. Along with existing cycle path alongside A414 creates a safe cycle route bypassing Ascots Lane at low cost.

Allow cycling on the pavement from Great Ganett to B195 to create a link to the Cole Green Way from local housing.

Make Dellsome Lane - Parsonage Lane the major road, giving priority to the NCN 12 route.

Upgrade zebra to toucan or tiger crossing to link the Alban Way to the cycle paths in De Havilland Village.

Having created the new cycle lanes on Hunters Bridge these need to join up safely to Stonehills and Campus West as they currently do neither.

Prune the hedges properly so there is space to pass other users of this shared path.

There is no safe link between Welwyn village & Digswell, Welwyn North station, Welwyn Garden City. This is a busy dual carriageway, and whilst there is a path, it is narrow, and not wide enough for pedestrians and cyclists.

Widen footpath and reclassify as cycleway to allow access to Hertford road and to make this show on route planners.

Requests to WelHatCycling for safe cycle route from Welham Green to Chancellors school.

Use subway for Bridleway when gravel works cease so cyclists and horseriders can avoid a busy road.

Use subway under road for bridleway when gravel extraction work ceases to use sites on both sides of road.

Remove anti cycling barrier which prevents tricylces and child tailers joining the Alban Way from Wellfield Road.

No direct cycle route from A414 cycle path to University. Very nasty busy roundabout. Needs less space for cars and more for cycling to avoid 1.5m detour.

HCC plan to make this one way southbound which makes cycling harder. Needs a contraflow lane off road if this plan is to go ahead.

Dropped kerb to allow access to Heron Way.

Dropped kerb to access Thrush Avenue

Protected crossing on Blackfan Road so bikes and pedestrians can cross from national cycle route to Green Lane, leading to Moneyhole Park

Howlands has no cycle lanes, lots of parked cars and people driving fast. There is one school off of Howlands, Commonswood. There are also cycle paths either end of Howlands but nothing connecting them. A Cycle path the length of Howlands w ... [more]

Sustrans have decided National Cycle Route 12 via this junction at Oxlease Drive is no longer safe and have removed it from their official map. Work is needed to fix this or divert the route via the cycle paths along Woods Ave and Travelle ... [more]

Sustrans have decided National Cycle Route 12 via Old Rectory Drive and How Dell is no longer safe and have removed it from their official map. Work is needed to fix this or divert the route via the cycle paths alongside Queensway. As thi ... [more]

The cycleway along Black Fan road crosses the Ridgeway, but there is no facility to assist. With the roads be busy and multiple directions to watch crossing here can be difficult

Open up footway to allow cycle access to this useful connection (e.g. for Welwyn North commuters)

Campus gyratory is a formidable barrier to cycle transit, both E-W and N-S. Do *something* here.

This section of the Alban Way needs lights to be usable safely after dark especially in the winter months.

Bridleway made impassable by forestry activity. Requires remedial action by land owner.

New Bridleway along north side of road does not link to any useful access points for horses or bicycles. Please joint it up to be useful.

Allow cyclists and pedestrians to cross here so the cycle path up the A1001 is a direct crossing, not 6 phases of the lights to get across one arm of the junction.

Move 40 mph speed limit to include the crossing. Add a central island wide enough for bikes with child trailers as a nasty place to cross with poor sightlines as cars speed down the hill.

Reduce speed limit to 40mph and add cycle lanes to link Mundels to Churchfield Road.

Reduce speed limit to 40 mph to slow down crazy drivers.

Welfield road was intentionally widened an a cost of ten of thousands as a failed traffic calming measure. Joining Alban way with the business park would have done the same thing with paint and some kerbstones.

Ask University to remove full width gate and replace with bollards as have to get off bike and lift on to pavement, which is not easy.

Reduce speed limit from National Limit to 40 mph.

Widen pavement

Upgrade existing well used path to an official dual use foot/cycleway including existing subway at Welwyn village & widen pavement to continue a safe cycle/mobility scooter link all the way from existing cycleways in Welwyn Garden City int ... [more]

Blocked access to public open space for mobility scooters & cycles to traffic free route to village

Blocked access for cycles & mobility scooters

Traffic lights need timing changes, they take an excessive amount of time to stop traffic and therefore encourage crossing without the green man

Coopers Green Lane in general is a very busy but narrow road, with multiple accidents involving cyclists, need separation of cyclists and other traffic

Speedbumps are full width of road. Make a lane for cycles to access the *park* as they don't need to be slowed down.

Cars frequently obstruct the cycleway by parking here. Requires solution to prevent that.

Narrow point forcing pedestrians and cyclists together on otherwise good cycle path.

This is a dead end, but could easily be opened to cycling.
