152760Photo #152760The pavement along the main road is tiny. It’s a main route for most of the village to walk/bike to school and sometimes I feel scared of my child’s safety when a lorry or bus comes by. One wrong move would mean they are on the road. Think a lot more of the village would walk if the path was wider. The section from just after the farm entrance to the small doctors surgery is the worst.Track:

152734Photo #152734This road is felt to be unsafe by many who cycle leading to use of the pavement. Widening the pathway and adding an additional cycle lane would increase safety and encourage more people to cycle between the villages and to the town. It would also link in with the current cycle network that ends at West Lynn.Cycleway:

152632Photo #152632This is a very common road for all kinds of cyclists (elite, hobby, leisurely, commuters) as well as pedestrians. Often when biking down here you're holding your breath wondering if you're going to get knocked off with cars zooming by at speed. There are also lots of pedestrians who use this route due to the sand pits (Ling Common) where they walk their dogs and take their children, as well as hiking towards the castle - often they're forced onto a small grass verge.Cycleway:

152627Photo #152627I work at the QEH and do a lunchtime 'circuit' which includes cycle paths and residential streets. There are hedges along Gayton Road (bordering Springwood Estate) which are overgrown and encroaching the path - losing perhaps a metre of walking area. This is also a cycle path so sometimes can be a little tricky as you can't always hear the bicycles coming which can cause some near miss situations. I think this would be helped by having the hedging maintained so the path area is as wide as it can be.Track:

152605Photo #152605We need a cycleway in Shouldham Warren to connect Spring Lane in Shouldham to New Rd in Wormegay.
The bridge in The Warren which is popular with walkers, cyclists etc has been out of use for several months. If repaired, it will go some way to making it easier for people to cycle from Marham and Shouldham to King's Lynn and Wormegay without having to go along the busy A134.

152602Photo #152602The cycle path along the A10 is unsafe and totally inadequate - it runs along a pavement in front of driveways etc and desperately needs a traffic filter to shelter from the busy A10 traffic. Plus it stops abruptly well before the Watlington roundabout. We need a safe cycle way along the A10 to Downham Market - this will increase cycle journeys dramatically and reduce motor traffic.Cycleway:
