A bus gate should be installed to allow a cycleway to be installed - the alternative route for motor traffic is not too convoluted

Bus gate needed to improve public transport and make it safer to cycle

Road needs cycleways

Road 18m wide - wide enough for better pavements & cycleways on both sides

Pedestrian crossings really badly timed. Needs better timings.

Pavement could be wider in the available road space.

Narrow entrance to junction

No pedestrian crossing

Pavement far too narrow for level of foot traffic

Cycling from Ouston to Team Valley is a nightmare, no path, no cyclepath, very busy commuter route, more people would use this route for cycling and/or walking

No cycling infrastructure to connect cycle way to the north with the shared-use path to the south. NEEDS a parallel crossing to the right the priorities pedestrians and cyclists to conform to LTN1/20

No LTN1/20 compliant cycling infrastructure, just some fragmented and crap "shared-use" paths. This needs segregated cycling lanes (NOT PAINT) to protect cyclists while maintaining directness.

Car-centric through traffic roundabout with no LTN1/20 compliant infrastructure for cycling. Incredibly dangerous. Council could have got surrounding developers to pay for cycling infrastructure here but decided not to because their traffic … [more]

No pavement

This section of the railway path is poorly maintained and exceptionally wet and muddy, when compared to other railway tracks like the Bishop Aukland and Lanchester routes. This path provides the only pedestrian route between New Brancepeth … [more]

The ford here could be replaced with a bridge to facilitate safer, off road access to the railway track cycle and footpaths from New Brancepeth.

This path should be improved as it provides a vital pedestrian link between Durham City and New Brancepeth. It is frequently flooded and muddy. Land registry appears to suggest this side of the river is not privately owned.

New Brancepeth could be directly linked to the former railway cycle paths heading into Langley Moor and Durham City, via Mill Lane. This is already a public footpath, and Mill Lane itself can be cycled, but gates, the bridge and paths … [more]

There is no path for around 0.9km between Alum waters and Langley Hall Farm. A path here would allow people in the village of New Brancepeth to walk and cycle to support local shops and businesses in nearby Langley Moor high street, instead … [more]

Road difficult to cross due to traffic backing up from the bridge and at junction for Gibside National Trust.

LNER need to make their Azumas able to easily take tandem bicycles so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with thier partners. The old trains allowed us to reach cities on your route and we no longer can, bad for … [more]

This part of Front Street—similar to other comments—could be exclusively for buses and otherwise pedestrianised. Traffic is often busy at peak times, making crossing the road difficult. Cyclists going into the main town centre would also be … [more]

Link the Lanchester Valley Walk to the Whitesmock area in Durham to encourage cycling into Durham from surrounding areas, especially to secondary schools and train station

Need a cycle lane here to improve the safety of the cyclists.

At the moment there are steps here but a little work would open up Priory Road as a cycleway and move it off of the main road with very little detriment. Making Priory Road one way for cars would also be sensible near the shops and still … [more]

Open up this prison land officially to walker as a way to link to the new Woodland Trust site that is being developed between this pond and the River Wear.

Purchase land for proper access along this stretch of the river to provide a good link between Finchale and Rainton Park Wood. This would help open up this stretch of the river.

Repair and reopen the 'pipe bridge' in Raintonpark Wood as this would offer a safer route for walkers and cyclists than the Cocken Bridge Road.

Parking in this area is dangerous (even following the adding of double yellow lines). Make the narrowest part of the parking area somewhere for bikes also consider how this road can be made safer for cyclists.

Creating a footpath from the end of the Kepier Wood through to Rainton Park Wood would make a new corridor for walkers away from traffic. I know lots of people who used to walk this route.

There is a well used footpath through this area that leads to the car park at the former DLI. It would create a more direct route to the railway station if this was surfaced and made suitable for bikes. It would also form a good access … [more]

Step slippy bank but lower route can be blocked by high river levels. It would be nice if some steps were added in this location. The upper path is also eroding away at places and quite slanted which makes it hard to use - especially for … [more]

Use the old incline to create a path down from the top of the viaduct to the river. This could be either just for walkers or also made suitable for bikes. If work was then done through Kepier Wood and towards the old Hospital it could make … [more]

Cut back vegetation along shared cycle/walking path beside A688. Especially at rdbt as it is a blind turn.

No pavement along busy winding Road

Make this little used path multi use to allow cyclists to get off the busy road.

Zebra crossing or traffic calming here as cars drive too fast and they have poor visibility of anyone crossing the road.

Cut hedges back as they are growing over path reducing space to walk on path.

Remove the pavement parking and install bollards, this will create a public open space for community use and allow local businesses to if they wish setup outdoor seating.

Dangerous crossing on C2C. Needs provision for pestrians and cyclists to cross safely.

Traffic volume and speed is generally low here. However, a minority of speeding motorists and a sense of entitlement on the road can be enough to make it uncomfortable for both pedestrians and cyclists. I think this would be a great place … [more]

Busy roundabout on busy cycle route which forms part of the C2C. Being at the center of the main shopping district in the town, it is also a popular and essential route for pedestrians and cyclists shopping in the area. Traffic is extremely … [more]

Residential streets, useful for safe cycling away from the main road. However these streets remain busy with sometimes fast traffic. Preventing through traffic by placing barriers at strategic points will stop motor vehicles taking … [more]

Barrier here affecting both cycle traffic continuing on the C2C or joining from Gill Street. These barriers prevent various traffic, such as bicycle trailers, cargo bikes, mobility scooters, wheelchairs, etc. This is a primary cycle route … [more]

Current traffic calming measures, mainly in the form of parking spaces protected by islands and bollards, make multiple pinch points throughout Dipton for cyclists to navigate. These can be dangerous and stressful for cyclists while … [more]

No provision for cycling here on fast and busy road. Only alternative is a detour along C2C and Pontop Pike road, where the gradient is completely unsuitable for most people using cycling as a means of transport. This is a primary route and … [more]

This road is a death trap, it already has had plenty of fatalities this year with people being hospitalised as drivers can’t control their speed. As a parent of 2 young children it’s like taking your life in your hands crossing them roads. … [more]

As a new convert to cycling my issue in Aycliffe is that whilst there are some good cycleways they overall provision appears not to be joined up into an overall coordinated plan which links these cycle ways together. This is particularly … [more]

Getting across town from east to west via Milburngate and/or Elvet bridge is difficult and dangerous. Open up framwellgate bridge as shared walking/cycleway and link Silver street to marketplace and Claypath or Old Elvet Bridge

I live in Ouston and would love to cycle to work but Greenford Lane which links us to Team Valley (where cycling gets better) is a very narrow, and very busy Road with many bends and blind corners. The alternative to to cycle via Birtley … [more]

Busy road with heavy trucks making it dangerous for cyclists

Better connection from settlements to existing railway path cycleway so they can be promoted for commuting rather just for pleasure purposes

Better cycle links and cycle storage to station and at station promoting sustainable, travel into city.

Needs proper segregation to address concerns from pedestrians

Narrow road and fast, rat-running traffic should have point closure or made one way to accord with Potters Bank/Lowes Barn Bank. This area is busy with families, residents and students alike - more space for them required

Cars parked on path making it impossible to pass with a wheelchair or buggie. Forcing people onto a dangerous main road. It can be improved by fining people for blocking the pavement.

Stop cars parking on the paths it makes it very difficult if not impossible to get passed when you're on a mobility scooter.

Footpath crosses road on blind bend. Better signage, speed limits needed. Posible extension of pavement on both sides of road.

Footpath crosses road on blind bend. Better signage, hedge maintenance, speed limits needed

Footpath crosses road on a blind bend. Better signage, speed restrictions needed etc.

This is one of the most dangerous crossings on C2C maybe add signal controlled cycle crossing.

Close this road to through traffic or make one way. It's a quiet route for cyclists trying to avoid traffic on main Stanley road.

Road surface at top of hill dangerously broken and potholed, forcing cyclists to slow right down and swerve all over road.

Safe crossing for cyclists needs to be made available at this roundabout which is heavily used by fast moving traffic.

Existing dual use footpath inadequate for both cycles and pedestrians, also poorly maintained.

Change this rat-run into a quiet road enabling safe access to local byways to walkers and cyclists. Preventing fly tipping and regular blocking by stuck Morrie's etc.

Footpath here used as unofficial cycle path, make it officially dual use.

This is a busy road well used by cyclists however traffic travels at speed and vegetation on roadside going uphill makes travel dangerous. Road is on poor condition with sunken drainage grilles.

This is a busy road well used by cyclists however traffic travels at speed and vegetation on roadside going uphill makes travel dangerous.

Narrow busy road and path from uni to maiden castle

Crossing of roads require priority for pedestrians and bikes. The number of people using this off-road path has increased dramatically.

Pathways too narrow outside of the schools. Widely used route for shops etc. There is a grass area where the grass is always trampled down to soil anyway and unsightly so why not use that to widen the path right up to the silver tree school … [more]

Heavily used pedestrian walkway is not wide enough for access to shops. Can’t cross paths with someone without stepping into a parking bay. Force Co-op to buy land adjacent for a car park and get rid of the parking bays in front of the … [more]

Pavement is too narrow on this corner for pedestrians wanting to cross paths. It is not helped by the massive overgrown hedge on the corner that reduces visibility for pedestrians and drivers alike.

This section of footpath needs widening. With a 6ft fence on one side and grass/overgrown bushes that no one takes ownership of, the path becomes narrow and it is hard to see people coming up the path. I have had to stand in a bush or walk … [more]

Remove the path or add a stop railing at the bottom before it crosses the road on Eshwood view. Young Kids zoom down this hill on bikes and skateboards and often do not stop before going across the road. It is only a matter of time before … [more]

Pavement too narrow over the bridge and cars not restricted. Need a passing point system to prevent road accidents and a barrier to protect pedestrians over the bridge. Reduce speed limit between Station Road and New Brancepeth to 30mph

The footpath is far too narrow alongside Broom Lane. This prevents people in wheelchairs and people with double push chairs walking the route to perhaps reach the picnic area.

Daughter is a wheelchair user. More dropped kerbs are needed.

The railway paths aren’t wide enough. Even before social distancing the paths were a constant hazard. Combined use by bicycles and walkers makes it a nightmare for safety. Electric bikes need to be banned on this route given they hit … [more]

All paths between squares are overgrown and as the grass cutters dont clean the paths when they are done it is very slippery when wet. They also need bollards or some kind of cut off to stop motorcyclist cutting through them.

The path all along Sleetburn Lane heading to Langley Moor needs updating as most of the narrow path is overgrown

Illegal parking double yellow lines needed it a serious accident spot especially when Children leave school

Gravel path is no good for cycling - a tarmacced cycle path would be ideal

The gravel path is no good for cycling on and the road is too busy with very fast moving traffic - I got my @rse smacked by a car wing mirror - how close was I to losing my life!

B1285 / Westlea Road needs protected space to help children cycle safely to & from local schools - particularly when travelling uphill.

Widen the path past the ponds could help with social distancing

The path is definitely not wide enough for the college kids and passing adults

The path is too narrow for cyclists and pedestrians. The cycle path ends very quickly with no warning. There is some grass, between the path and road to the carpark. Could the grass be made into path, to extend the circle path to the … [more]

Cycleway here needs to be continued Eastbound to connect to cycleway near A19 junction, enabling cycling on segregated cyclepaths between Sedgefield, NCN1 and Billingham

Existing crossing is badly sited and makes it very hard and unsafe to cross the carriageway.

Existing cycleway between Sedgefield and Wynyard needs widening and complete resurfacing in order to be safely useable.

The dualled section of the A177 encourages speeding by motor vehicles. Could one carriageway be converted to a bus and cycle lane?

Make path wider where possible between Tursdale roundabout and new amazon roundabout to improve social distancing and encourage increased use of this route.

Improve surface at Eastern end of existing footpath and make it a Bridleway or Byway to allow cyclists to use it

Make pavement wider and dual use add dropped kerbs at various points to improve for walkers and cyclists

Make pavement wider and dual use add dropped kerbs at various points to improve for walkers and cyclists

Pavement too narrow on South Side of road. Needs proper cycle path adding on North or South side to join dual use path on A167 to Dual use path that follows old path of A688 to Metal Bridge

There is ample room for a cycle lane heading north, uphill if the parking bays were suspended

The whole of Newton Hall estate should be 20mph zone as has been implemented in Gilesgate estate. Currently unsafe for cyclists and appalling for children playing.
