167112Photo #167112Why is the Humber Bridge closed to bikes? The reasons for banning walkers and cyclists are sensitive, but we're asking for clarification over this decision which requires a 60-mile detour for cyclists and walkers to cross the estuary.

138268Photo #138268A proper cycle path that is properly maintained needs to be put in from Beverley all the way to Hornsea. This could have a significant impact on the traffic along this road if there is a meaningful cycleway, not some hodge podge mess that involves crossing a 50+mph busy road, being sent on random detours and a shared path that is barely a metre wide as high speed traffic whizzes by. Completely unsafe and not fit for purpose. Some parts are incredibly narrow and dangerous. Then the track comes to an abrupt end at the Leven roundabout - it doesn't even get you all the way to Leven! Needs extending all the way to Hornsea. Then people could have a nice day out at the beach with their children in safety and people could commute in to Beverley from surrounding villages.Cycleway:

136319Photo #136319Lots of parked cars. Poor visibility. Lots of aggressive, speeding cars and vans. Drivers mounting the pavement to go to the shop. For much of the road it is effectively single land with many areas requiring negotiation for vehicles trying to pass each other in opposite directions.

Problem
cycleways
136315Photo #136315This road needs a safe cycle and pedestrian way. There are blind bends. It is supposed to be single track road with passing places but has had numerous bodge job tarmacking efforts that have effectively widened the road but are so cavernous they are impossible to make use of as a cyclist. The effect is that you look as if you are in the middle of the road. Except on an icy morning when they are the only non-slip areas of the road. But they are ankld-deep full of icy mud. There is a public footpath along the river bank. It doesn't extend to Weel village so you have to walk in the road for the last bit. The top if the riverbank is a morass in winter. Vehicles drive on it even though they shouldn't. Pedestrians and cyclists are being put at risk on this road.Cycleway:

Proper segregated cycle lane urgently needed as there is no other way of cycling north/south between Hull/Beverley, without cycling on pavement. Slow traffic down, make 30 mph. Add more crossings. Traffic only piles up at Greenwood Ave junction in the morning, so why bother having this as 40 mph zone?Cycleway:

135442Photo #135442Traffic islands for pedestrians to cross make it very dangerous for cyclists on the road. It's a 40 mph road, there is a narrow painted dashed line for cyclists on the road and a sign that says do not overtake cyclists. The sign is ignored and the painted line encourages people to overtake and close pass. If you ride primary, car drivers try to force past you by going onto the right turning lane and then cut in very close.

Put in a proper segregated cycle lane on this route. Get rid of the 40mph limit altogether, it's pointless and dangerous, encouraging speeding into and out of Woodmansey and Dunswell. The cycle route should not cross over here unless a proper safe crossing is installed.

135430Photo #135430Total mess of a cycle scheme along Swinemoor Lane, it needs sorting out.

At the top there is a nice bit of segregated track, but then it gets shared with pedestrians, hops from one side to the other, people park on it in places, leave bins etc on it and at the bottom directly after the roundabout heading north, the path abruptly ends, forcing cyclists back into the road and it's not very clear which bits are ok to cycle on and which are not. The road layout needs a complete rethink and for the space to be better utilised.

135418Photo #135418There is a nice bit of segregated pedestrian and cycle way from the leisure centre towards Flemingate, which just ends in a very busy road with traffic from 3 directions at once. A crossing is needed to allow pedestrians and cyclists to get across the road in safety.

There needs to be some joined up thinking about people using the Leisure centre and Femingate shops and services. People would like to do their activities at the gym or pool, then go for a nice coffee in Flemingate, or browse the shops or both. This encouragement to stay in a people friendly space would help regenerate the economy of the local area.

130657Photo #130657As the road is dotted with cars parked all day it would be beneficial for cyclists to have a dedicated lane on one side of the street. Pedestrians could also safely use this to social distance when walking if necessary. Often large vehicles can't get through and cars are half parked on the pavement on both sides making it very difficult to keep safe. The road is a rat run for the prison and can get very busy at times especially when schools open. Encouraging people to cycle around the village would be of huge benefit to everyone, and would benefit those who use wheelchairs & mobility chairs/scooters and those with pushchairs. A cycle lane from one end of the village would be beneficial running the course of Ferry Road, West End and Church Street.Cycleway:
