Segregated cycle lane on the pavement as far as the ring road. Two way on the moor side as plenty of room and one way on other side.

Improve connection from cycle crossing to Alma Street as currently very poor shared path. Make crossing single phase all the way across for cycling.

Extend cycle path using mostly 3 metre wide existing path to fire station/Sainsbury's @ Bradway....cost next to nothing !

Connect Abbeydale Road to Archer Drive, then Sheaf Valley Cycleway

Existing cycleway, just needs the overgrown vegetation cutting back (Tesco land)

Short cycle link between Smithy Wood Road and Little London Road with signal crossings.

Sort out messy junction. Very difficult to travel south of Bramall Lane then cross streams of traffic to pick up safe off road route.

Contra-flow cycle lane on Shoreham Street. Link to existing.

Zebra or signalled traffic crossing needed.

Widen narrow gap on designated cycle route to Suffolk Lane.

Zebra crossing for Sheaf Valley Cycleway

Porter Brook Path - missing section of cycleway

Sheaf Valley Cycle Route - Support new section of cycleway which the STEPS & next door developer are due to provide

Prove cycle traffic lights to connect Heeley/Meersbrook to Sheaf Valley Cycleway

Sheaf Valley Cycle Route - Remove chicanes and replace with bollards

This is a through route for heavy lorries often travelling downhill at speed. It is used by cyclists to and from the Peak District as well as a main walking route for 2 local primary schools. Baslow Road would benefit from heavy lorry rest ... [more]

Improve the surface of the path to widen the range of bikes which can use it.

The road is too narrow and it is often congested

This section of road desperately needs a segregated cycle way. As a very busy walking route, the space should be taken from motor traffic, and walkways widened in the same program of work. It's very intimidating to cycle this road. I exper ... [more]

This road is clogged with traffic and parked cars. It's the main route into Sheffield centre. A fully segregated cycle lane is needed from here, and into the city. The walkways on both sides are also too narrow. To make space, it will be ne ... [more]

Very dangerous right hand turning. Need a roundabout/traffic lights to ease turning or allow for right hand turn onto Brickhouse Lane for cyclists

A new section of cycle way painted on the pavement. Several problems. First it narrows the pedestrian area so that people can’t safely social distance. It passes a bus stop creating conflict between cyclists and pedestrians trying to dist ... [more]

Dreadful junction, difficult for pedestrians and cyclists to cross between woods - why is this road 40mph is beyond me. Unsafe for all except those in cars. Needs speed limit dropping and 2 - 3 zebra crossings across main routes across the ... [more]

Needs bus lane to be 24 hours rather than just rush hour - all of Ecclesall Road and Ecclesall Rd South

Needs cycle lane

Need cycle path fro Bradfield road through Holme Lane to Malin Bridge

Good route into town for bikes, avoiding hills, but frequented by HGVs and other motor traffic. A cycleway would make it much safer, along the whole length of Carlisle Rd

Upgrade to proper segregated cycle way on this section of the A61 as should have been done during construction.

A designated cycle route/or specific cycle facilities in the Ponderosa, to encourage cycle use and provide a traffic free cycle route up the hill from the Kelham area to the University/Hospital.

Segregated cycleway would be beneficial due to speed differential between motor vehicles and people on bikes travelling up the hill.

There is a new cycle way along the pavement here after the construction of the student accommodation buildings, but the bus stop here makes it very hard to avoid people on the pavement. The cycle lane also ends abruptly and dumps cyclists b ... [more]

Improve the cycleway here as it can be dangerous due to the bends

Shared pavement with cycles and pedestrians to encourage more cycling to/from Hillsborough

Create a cycleway off Langsett Road and onto Langsett Cr to enable cyclist to avpoid cycling next to the trams?

Create a cycleway off Langsett Road and onto Langsett Cr to enable cyclist to avpoid cycling next to the trams?

Shared pavement for cycles/pedestrians here

Shared pavement for bikes and cycles here

Cut back vegetation so cyclists and pedestrians can see traffic on toucan crossing

Buses wait for long periods forcing cyclists into outside lane and into path of cars coming off the roundabout. Make buses wait further down the road away from roundabout where there is more time to plan your move

No cycle lane on this stretch of road. Difficult for cyclists to change lane and turn right.

Improvement needed and a clear cycleway for cyclists coming from town along the first bit of Cemetery Road and wanting to turn right towards Waitrose Car Park and Ecclesall Road. At the moment you have to cut across the pavement (inconvenie ... [more]

The council needs to do regular cutting back of vegetation overgrowing onto the cycle ring route here. There's a blind corner anyway and the overgrowth makes collisions with occasional pedestrians more likely

Three narrow lanes of traffic, on a hill, several sets of traffic lights. No room for cyclists.

Far too narrow; blind bend.

Segregated cycle lane at very busy junction. Difficult to filter safely heading in and out of town from Manchester Road to Glossop Road

Going up the hill, cars are overtaking with too little space considering the oncoming traffic and it's a left hand bend. Cycling up and down this road is akin to a death sentence.

This nice looking cyclepath leads to a dead end. I think it's been like this for ten years, will it ever be finished?

Ban park of the side of the road, allow to create 2 way cycle road.

A new tower block will shortly be opened here and with it potentially more cars parking on the road. THis road is a big commuter road too with people commuting into the city. Creating a cycle route will further solidify the cycling commuter ... [more]

Very busy commuter route, would benefit from havign a cycle lane as more people are now cycling in the area.

There's a tiny sliver of advisory cycle lane on this road that's wide enough for a dedicated lane all the way up.

Cycle lane access from Crookes Road to Roslin Road

Cycle lane access from Crookes Road to Parker's Road

The entire A61 in and out should have proper cycleway infrastructure, as opposed to the current hotch potch. This would allow people to commute more effectively in and out of the city.

Cycleway

Impossible to cycle down queens rd (out of town) during afternoon rush hour as traffic is solid so you end up sitting in a traffic jam on bike / having to take a detour

Need dedicated cycleway from here into the city along Ecclesall Road South - journey into city has a bus lane, but the journey back has no safety/space been bikes, cars and buses. Bus lanes usually full of cars... why not use Ecclesall as ... [more]

Pavement from Newlands Road to A6102 could be shared path to avoid dangerous traffic lights around Asda island.

Double parking makes cycling challenging

Ringinglow Road - to Burbage and beyond needs a cycle lane. It’s a very popular route for cyclists including families cycling out to the Peak District, bit v dangerous as lots of Traffic and speeding cars. There is ample space for a cycle ... [more]

There needs to be a cycle lane and pedestrian walkway on Ringinglow Road Sheffield. Cars travel along this road at speeds well in excess of the speed limit and there have been a number of fatalities…

Extend cycle path using mostly 3 metre wide existing path to fire station/Sainsbury's @ Bradway....cost next to nothing !

Dual carriageway generally reduced to 1 lane each side due to parking - one of the main routes to & from Peak District for cycling

Endcliffe Park has no designated cycle track and runners, cyclists, walkers, dogs, children on scooters cross cross each other all the time. Separate the users by limiting cyclists and runners to the woodland route north side of the brook ... [more]

Busy 40mph limit commuter route from Abbey Lane to Totley. Has very wide pavements and a bus lane in one direction. could fit in a cycle way (or maybe build a track through Ecclesall wood for the first half mile?

There needs to be a cycle lane and pedestrian walkway on Ringinglow Road Sheffield. Cars travel along this road at speeds well in excess of the speed limit and there have been a number of fatalities to both pedestrians and cyclists. There ... [more]

Very short, unconnected cycle lane painted on busy road. Needs a continuous, physically separate cycleway

Very short, unconnected cycle lane painted on busy road. Needs a continuous, physically separate cycleway

No designated cycle way to the underpass but a very difficult roundabout to negotiate on a bicycle

Cycle way should be o both sidescofcthe road and plenty of room

The bridleway here would make a great alternative to cycling up/down the very steep and busy highcliffe road. But its got such huge ruts in it and often muddy to be completely unridable.

Traffic on Abbey lane is too busy and fast for safe crossing. This could be part of a route to King Ecgbert school otherwise. There's currently no safe way for my son and his friends to get there from Carter Knowle with is a real shame, so ... [more]

Popular commuting route on narrow busy road. Needs segregated cycleway in both directions

Dangerous for bikes, needs segregated cycle lanes through very busy junction.

Plenty of room for dedicated cycle lanes on very popular commuting route

Either remove dual carriageway to add cycleway, or add cycleway to the very wide pavement. Currently very dangerous for bikes.

The shared cycleway on Park Grange Road looking suspiciously like an ordinary footway, and certainly no wider than an ordinary footway.

No proper dropped kerb at the end of the Cobweb Bridge at Sussex Street.

Washed out sand on the ramp down and under the Derek Dooley Way bridge.

A poor transition between two bits of shared footway, and attracting mud. Why is this not on a straight through alignment for cyclists?

Bump up over the kerb to join this 10m long cycleway, dodge a sign and then bump down behind the give way line of a side road.

Signed NCN route to Fulwood from Whitely Woods. Difficult to negotiate with a heavy bike. Would be impossible with a trailer. Other side is a steep muddy track with some steps.

This flank of 6 steps lies right on a cycle route, leading to an underpass under a busy roundabout - there's also an S-shaped ramp nearby to bypass the steps. Both are signposted as 'cyclists dismount'. However, I've watched several cycl ... [more]

Access to the cycle route here could benefit from a dropped kerb here.

[UPDATE 25th April 2014: A feedback reporter gives the following good news! : "This problem has now been fixed - the bollards that were in the middle of the cyclepath have been removed."] ORIGINAL REPORT: This is an example of incompe ... [more]
