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

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]

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]

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

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.

Make this road a one way system to enable walking and cycling to be safer. Many kids and young people use these roads to get on to the c2c and down to the Bowes railway path

Ban private cars on the peninsular! They squeeze pedestrians onto extremely narrow pavements. Limited exceptions could be possible.

Provide bus filter on high street. Remove some car parking except for disabled and create space for planting, cycle lane and narrow existing carriageway. Bus filter will prevent through route for cars promoting visiting shops by bike and on … [more]

A road closure somewhere round here would help stop rat running and make the streets quieter.

For social distancing as pupils arrive on foot

School site entrance. Road needed to allow for social distanceing as pupils enter and leave ,most with carers.

Back entrance to ST leonards. Currently 12 buses serve the school with al day sessions of school, but social distancing on buses there could be up to 60 buses . more likely parents will be encouraged to use cars without carsharing to get … [more]

Narrow road outside of school which becomes congested at peak times. Implement school streets/restricted access at drop off and pick up times

Partial bus prioritisation on high street. Extend to cover the entire high street area.

Could there be a temporary closure here (except for buses) to keep this route quite for cycling? A690+A691 should be where cars go.

Reduce the number of lanes on the roundabout to slow traffic down so people can cycle and walk across junction safely.

Redhills Lane should be closed to through traffic for safety and environmental reasons.

A bus gate so other through traffic was stopped would improve air quality on Claypath.

Let buses and bikes through here, but block road to cars and this would force traffic via A690 where it belongs and improve the air quality where people live.

Quarry Heads Lane is a narrow stretch of road with narrow (1-2 people wide) pavements. A road closure, so that it became access only would massively reduce traffic and allow further improvements to the public realm.

Potters Bank is rat run into Durham City. It should have a road closure which would turn it back into a quiet residential road.

Lowes Barn Bank is a rat run. The road should be closed to traffic at the western end, so that it becomes access only & the quiet residential road it should be.

Allowing cars onto the peninsular will force shoppers on Saddler Street to get too close to each other. Closing the area to motor vehicles during peak shopping times would help. School pickup for the Chorister School could be via walking. … [more]
