There's a ramp from Welwyn Garden City station to the upper level of the shopping centre, where lifts are not obvious and in any case are closed from 19.15 - that's right, arrive here in a wheelchair in the evening and you will be stuck on ... [more]

  • Icon 167606 We need to remove the cyclist from the prom and create a designated lane on the overcliff. Too many accidents on the prom now
  • Icon 167605 Pedestrian crossing is needed here.
  • Icon 167604 Commuter traffic on pavements. Increased HMOs and lets mean parking is an issue and unsafe for children as parking on pavements and obscuring view to cross. Residents parking zone needed.
  • Icon 167600 Cycle path needed here
  • Icon 167518 Too many potholes along this stretch of road. Unsafe seriously needs improvements
  • Icon 167494 Clarify the cycle route from the start of the footpath, ie. signpost the route along St Benedict Road heading South and where to go from here to reach Rails Lane. Perhaps upgrade the footpath to shared cycleway.
  • Icon 167493 Sir. Please have the Garden waste removed. Turning of Ringwood Road onto Green Lane (E42/37) Ferndown. Is a Bridleway. Half way along Green Lane and over the last 18 months, someone has been depositing Garden waste. The Bridleway has become narrower. My concern is, by the narrowing of this Bridleway (due to the Garden waste being deposited). It is having the effect of driving walkers to climb a small embankment to pass through and not allowing two people to walk side by side. The narrowing also affects of both horse riders and Cyclists, who have to do the same. As for wheel chairs and mobility users, not forgetting Families with a Childs Buggy. Making the Journey on the Bridleway impossible to continue. They are being denied a very pleasant Journey taking them away from a very busy main road, along Green Lane, leading into High mead Lane, then Joining the Footpath/Cycleway on Ham Lane, or vice-versa from Ham Lane back to Green Lane.

  • Icon 167408 Pavement too narrow for wheelchair
  • Icon 167373 This is a very wide road with narrow pavements. The high volume of traffic on the road generally travels well in excess of the 20mph speed limit. Most residents have front gardens, however most leave their bins on pavements obstructing half of all pavement space. Bins should be stored in front gardens and this should be enforced by the council. The bins are a public nuisance and an obstruction of the public highway. The road is unnecessarily inhospitable to pedestrians and especially risky for children who could easily tumble off the obstructed pavements and into the road. There are also very few places to cross the road and additional pelican crossings should be installed, particularly to enable access to and from the park.
  • Icon 167359 There is a footpath here, along the A6 crossing over the Grand Union Canel and starting opposite St Margaret's Pastures. It allows you to walk into/from city centre but this path always has cyclists speeding past in both directions on a narrow walking path making it feel unsafe to walk. There is also a lot of bushes that could be made clearer as it makes it very secluded and not safe to walk in the dark. You can never hear cyclists approaching behind you because they don’t use bells or anything to alert your attention. The path goes on to turn into pavement which has been halved to make a cycle lane leading into the city centre but the pavement is now quite narrow. Both areas need to be made better for walking.
  • Icon 167358 There's nowhere to park the bike next to New Cross Station. I suggest a parking rack at its entrance.
