Confused access to Preston station

Route out of Preston station towards Avenham Park

It's not obvious where the path is, whether it's open to cycles, or whether it link to the East Lancs Railway viaduct, but anyway it's closed.

Access from Avenham Park, Preston, to the former East Lancs Railway viaduct (NCN route 55) is not easy at the moment.

  • Icon 149206 Pedestrianise church street in the summer months or permanently. People would love to sit out here and walk to the priory or quay without car disruption
  • Icon 149205 The traffic light system needs to give to greater priority to pedestrians and cyclists. A long wait encourages children to run the lights. If we are to encourage more children to cycle to local schools then a shorter wait will improve their safety.
  • Icon 149204 A dedicated cycle way needs to be considered to join the Stanleys to the Stonehouse-Nailsworth cycle path. At present the constricted road between St Georges church and Stanley Mills is viewed as dangerous and prevents many from cycling in and out of Kings Stanley. A short term improvement would be to reduce the speed limiit to 20mph and put of clear signage requiring driveres to be patient and to not attempt to overtake (in both directions). A painted cycle lane could be introduced in both directions over the bridge, allowing cyclists to skip the lengthy traffic jams that form here during rush hour.
  • Icon 149200 Make Tuckton bridge bus, cycle and pedestrian only.
  • Icon 149179 Need a footpath or cycleway between Latchingdon and Mayland for easy access between each place.
  • Icon 149176 Speed bumps - 20mph speed limit constantly being broken
  • Icon 149173 Wider pavement - can be achieved by removing parking bays. As soon as people queue for shops / ATM / banks, it is necessary to walk in the road. People chatting on the pavement makes it worse (including around the entrance to the Exchange, where there are the white railings, litter bins narrowing the footpath and people coming in and out).
  • Icon 149168 Very narrow pavements down the street and this is the route for many children going to Latchingdon school. People don’t do 30 along there so it’s very fast traffic for very narrow pavements
  • Icon 149164 There is a traffic island here to assist with crossing this road which is very busy around school drop off /pick-up times. The pavement though is too narrow here for the number of people crossing and especially difficult to cross here If you have a number of children with you or have scooters / a pram.
  • Icon 149163 We have a brilliant path and cycle way from Mill Lane to a nature reserve called "The Dream". It is heavily used and enjoyed by the community even more so throughout this lockdown period.The problem with it is the approach which is very dangerous as Derby Road is 50 mph speed limit, unfortunately cars travel a lot faster than this. And also the path is on the west side of Mill Lane so you have to cross two very busy roundabouts and a junction coming off a dual carriageway with no pedestrian crossing in place so with a four year old and a 6 year old I have to judge the traffic then I have to cross as fast and as safely as I can which is not easy as it a very busy junction. I feel a good idea to reduce the safety risks would be to put a pedestrian crossing in place on Derby Road to a path which then follows the perimeter of farmland all the way around Derby Road to Mill Lane to where the path starts. Reducing the need to cross junctions and roads numerous times, it would make this journey so much safer as it would also make the journey for children living on the RIvendell estate a lot safer to the local schools.Thanks Paul Jackson
  • Icon 149162 Should be a speed camera on Newfoundland Drive in Poole. The Road speed says 20MPH almost everyone does 35/40mph. Many people have a problem crossing the road. This needs changing. Maybe a speed camera or pedestrian crossing is needed.
  • Icon 149161 A security camera under the bridge would encourage people to cycle.
