136205Photo #136205The Spenser Road crossing is a major point of conflict with car drivers not respecting cyclists priority. Visibility is poor. It is a rat run and could be closed with little detrimental effect as there are many other routes into the area. If it is to remain open the wooden fences on the eastern side need to be removed as they seriously obstruct vision.Temporary closure:

136202Photo #136202There is an access road into a housing area across which the cycleway has priority. Unfortunately many drivers to not respect this and there are frequent near-hits. This road access is also a rat-run linking North Lynn and Wootton Road. It should be closed as there are already ample access roads onto the estate.Cycleway:

131869Photo #131869Missing link between two quiet country lanes. Either narrow the very wide road or tarmac on the verge and use kerbs or wands to create a two-way cycleway along the north edge, allowing the layby opposite Church Lane to be used as a waiting area when crossing.Cycleway:

131853Photo #131853Wide-laned road with wide shoulders and wide verges. Repainting and kerbing or wanding to make ¾ mile of protected cycleway on the east side between the old A10 and Runcton Road would significantly improve access between Marham, the Shouldhams and Downham Market by removing either a 2 mile detour or a mile of unprotected A road cycling.Cycleway:

131843Photo #131843Wide road on key cycle desire line with frequent speeding and close-passes. Fix by removing central line and marking wide advisory cycle lanes along both sides, plus further encouragement of motorists to use the A17.Cycleway:
Problem

131841Photo #131841Access between Beech Road (for Hardwick Road) and York Road (for The Walks or The Friars) is too narrow and obstructed by barriers and high kerbs. Fix by picking any of several possibilities: for example, widening the drainside track and improving the crossing of Vancouver Avenue, or bridging into Somerville Avenue.Cycleway:

122220Photo #122220The anti-motorcycle barriers are hazardous to cyclists and it's difficult to avoid pedestrians while negotiating this narrow barrier on a blind junction. The simplest option would be to remove the barrier as it does not prevent motorcycles accessing the park!Cycleway:

122217Photo #122217The foot/cycleway across the bridge is too narrow. The footway should be left for pedestrians and a protected cycle lane be created on the roadway. The bridge could be made one-way for motor traffic with traffic in the opposite direction diverted over the A47 bridge and Nar-Ouse Way.Cycleway:
Problem

122213Photo #122213The anti-motorcycle barriers (which don't work anyway) cause a pinch-point putting joggers, cyclists and pedestrians in close proximity while they wait their turn. Just remove the barriers.Cycleway:
Problem

122209Photo #122209It is very difficult to cross London Road here while socially distancing as the pavement is very narrow (particularly on the west side) and the lights take a very long time to change in favour of pedestrians. It's also heavily used by cyclists since the Valingers Rpad traffic lights were removed as there's no other easy way to get by bike from The Friars to the Chase and the Walks.Track:

122118Photo #122118Cycleway between Bridge House and Straight Drain too narrow for tricycles, trailers and wheelchairs. Could be widened to 3m by realigning kerbs and restoring the part of the tarmac that is falling off the embankment between the river and drain.Cycleway:
