It's August, it's heaving with people & vehicles. The A149 is at standstill from Snettisham to Hunstanton. Meanwhile, two people on mobility scooters are riding along the middle of the road because the single path isn't fit for purpose. In … [more]

There should be a cyclable route along the coast south from here to Snettisham and Dersingham to encourage active travel to and from Hunstanton.

Should be at the very least cycle lanes along this busy section of road.

Clear signs needed to make sure people know to turn left here, especially as the barrier on to Priory Lane east of here is impassible on a cycle with bags.

Have you tried cycling anywhere around here. It's impossible to cross in either direction if you are even in the slightest bit nervous. A terrible set of circumstances for cyclists. Uphill, narrow roads, all types of vehicles, driven at … [more]

The path here, all the way to Snettisham, is broken down, crumbling, unfit for purpose. Widen & resurfacing req. Once in a generation chance to provide cycleway & pedestrian footpath to connect 3 villages & a town. And create a bigger, … [more]

Cycle path ends here! Continue path north to around edge of roundabout. Create low sleeping policeman crossing here to connect to existing cycle path up Redgate Hill to next roundabout. The current alternative is to cut leaving cycle path … [more]

Used by all ages, this high passage is the main cycle path & pedestrian route for two schools, a town centre & three quarters of Hunstanton's housing stock. Completely unfit for purpose. Very narrow, high, dangerous sloping position … [more]

Dangerous zone. Road narrows to junctions & 90° blind corner. Widen for pedestrians & cyclists alike.

Large Cycle storage (Family locker & single sizes). Can be monitored via camera on Council Building.

The promenade between Heacham and Hunstanton should be equipped for cycling, it's wide enough. A lot of towns have shared spaces for walkers and cyclists.

The road from the Dersingham roundabout to the cycle way is really unpleasant to cycle at anytime. If there was a cycleway it would complete a comfortable route from Hunstanton to King's Lynn ( rather than the longer and winding existing … [more]

Open Tower Street to cycling, to permit access to cycle parking and shops.

Cycleway priority over road required.

Road not suitable for cycling. Extend cycleway north to Wolferton junction.

Poor quality crossing. Make cycleway continuous and give it priority.

Wrong signage -- sign shows footway to be segregated cycle/pedestrian route but it is not. Replace sign.

Bollard at north end of the bridge is on the tight turning into the bridge, making it dangerous and difficult to cycle through. Remove bollard.

This 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 … [more]

Grimston and Pott Row, through to Wootton and King's Lynn - family friendly route ie bridge crossing for A148 and A149

There is no safe cycleway from Ashwicken to King's Lynn - cars travel very fast and it is not safe to cycle to town

B1145 Into Kings Lynn is quite dangerous considering it is a B road it has a lot of busy traffic, a dedicated cycle way would slow the traffic down and give safe access into town.

Too many lorries to cycle safely on road, paths not wide enough from Leziate to Pott Row and Grimston

Gayton Road cycle paths are in sections depending on which side of the road you are on, It would be more beneficial to narrow the path and create a cycle lane on both sides.

This route needs to be improved and maintained as it shortens the ride fom Fairgreen/Leziate to King's Lynn considerably.

We 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 … [more]

Cycle lanes needed along entire length into town

Cycle lanes linked to advance stop lines and priority green light for cyclists in this area. Reduce traffic capacity to accomodate more active travel
