15550Photo #15550Hampshire's mean-spirited implication that "Partnership" doesn't work anywhere else.

At best we can surmise that a project (we know not what), or projects, once worked well enough that they persuaded the railway company to permit the installation of this sign because they thought that rail travellers ought to know about it, whatever it was.

117411Photo #117411There is a 2 way cycle way here that pedestrians have to use as well. The path at around 2 metres wide is not wide enough for two way cycling yet alone pedestrians as well. The speed limit on this section of road is 40 mph with no divide between the path and road. The non traffic side of the road has a drop into vegetation.Cycleway:

121932Photo #121932If the council could cut the leaf growth around the bottom of the trees which goes across the footpath. Generally please advise all residents of RBC to keep their hedges, trees, not overhanging the pavement, there any so many unmaintained front garden bushes etc., that heavily impact on the available pavement space. There are also many raised pavement areas caused by the large trees causing lots of potential trip hazards appreciate there is not a magic money tree but any improvements would help.Temporary closure:

128257Photo #128257Cycleway along main road does not have same priority as road. It is dangerous that the cyclelane has to give way to every little sideroad, usually safer to ride on the road even if it angers motorists.

The cycle lane and path should be made continuous across sideroads. The ideal would be raised platform but could be done with moved give way markings or painted zebra crossings.
