  • Bournville Boating Lake

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    The paths around the boating lake are already used by cyclists. However, the path shown on the map parallel to my suggested path is narrow and in dangerously poor condition. My suggestion is to create an armoured grass path as shown. The path that heads North at one end should be extended to join it, and the old path removed. This is to improve safety at what is currently a blind junction.
    It would be good to address the bridge at the western end of the suggested path, which has wheel-grabbing slots.

  • Broken Glass in front of the Birmingham Uni

    Created by Bracken VanRyssen // 0 threads

    The cycle path alongside the University of Birmingham campus seems to be a magnet for broken glass, especially in the area opposite the petrol station and Oakfield Road. Avoiding all the broken glass is quite a trial especially for those with less robust tires. Regular sweeping would go a long way towards improving the quality of the route.

  • Cob Lane - Bournville Lane Link

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 1 thread

    This path is supposed to be a shared use path, part of the Merritts Brook Greenway. Unfortunately it is the same width as a bicycle and completely unlit. It emerges at an informal crossing upon which cyclists are instructed to dismount. Cyclists are then expected to pedal along the pavement. It's completely useless and unnecessary, as there is a better route via Charfield Close.

  • Cob Lane - Bristol Road Link

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    This path has been built recently as part of the Merritts Brook Greenway walking and cycling route. It would be quite useful were it not narrow, twisty, and covered in loose chippings. As it is, it is all but useless for cycling, so it needs to be rebuilt properly.

  • Cycle Path Suggestion

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    A bi-directional cycle path here would link Langleys Road (a quiet road that leads down into Bournville Village and beyond) with Katie Road (another quiet road that links with the BCR route on the Worcester and Birmingham canal). Cyclists would cross Oak Tree Lane using what is currently a puffin crossing (suitably modified to promote sustainable transport). There is a huge amount of space here, currently largely used for pavement car parking.
