All along Fifth Rd from the back entrance of St Barts school, the pavement on both sides is very narrow. Very hard to walk on it without being single file or walking in the road. Pavement needs to be widened or the hedgerows creating the is ... [more]

Provide a pedestrian crossing on this popular but dangerous crossing

The footpath down the A339 south of the Pinchington Lane roundabout all the way to the Greenham Business Park needs widening and the trees cutting back to allow safe cycling. Soil encroachment has also reduced the 1.2 metre wide footpath t ... [more]

Path is far to narrow probably due to overgrown hedgerows all the way from Conifer Crest to the Monument. Currently people are risking their safety jumping the ditches and walking in the road

Pavement narrow for volume of school children from 2 schools and by a busy road.

Pavement widening for safety of school children.

The pavement is far too narrow to accommodate the number of children and adults accessing the schools. The grass verge could be used to widen the path.

The pavements both sides of Essex St are narrow and could be widened. A narrower carriageway would slow traffic down

The pavement here is too narrow and in disrepair. This is close to a main school gate and students regularly walk in the road. The hedgerow is an important feature here but it is not regularly maintained and when it is trimmed, the trimming ... [more]

Pavement is too narrow and students walking to and from from the school often have to use the road to walk along. Reduce hedge width and or reduce road width in order to widen pavement.

Fifth Road pavement is far too narrow for so many pupils to be walking along to get to and from secondary school. Even for myself with a family we find it’s too narrow. It may be 30 mph along that road but it doesn’t feel safe and it co ... [more]

Hedges really overgrown, trees overhanging - hardly any space on the pavement in places.

There are no pavements on this road and speeding is common. Drivers should be encouraged to drive slowly and give space to pedestrians, runners, cyclists and horse riders through signage / traffic calming.

Narrow path on one side of the road, overgrown hedgerows. Not enough space for pedestrians to safely pass.

Narrow path on one side of the road only. Needs to be much wider and/or provision on other side of the road too.

The verge and hedgerow could be cut back and the road narrowed a bit to make more way for the path - a narrower road might hopefully reduce speeding problem.

These pavements are so narrow. The hedgerows either side are poorly maintained. Meaning the brambles scratch your face. Would massively benefit from being made wider.

The pavement it far too narrow to accommodate the number of children and adults accessing the schools. The grass verge could be used to widen the path

On fifth road there is not enough space for two people to pass each other particularly on the section near St Bartholomew's school. It is very narrow and as it is a wide long straight road there is a real issue with speeding.it is so danger ... [more]

Path too narrow and only on one side of the road. Impossible to pass other than shoulder to shoulder without stepping into the road

Hedges on school side of the road need trimming.

Path very narrow!

Pavements are very narrow in this section of the Andover Road and as the road is fairly wide here with no traffic calming measures, cars frequently exceed the speed limit on this stretch. This was the case before lockdown and has worsened s ... [more]

Years of growth of ivy, stingers, brambles and weeds takes up half the pavement.

To improve safety at an entrance to Park House School on departure and arrival of pupils. Widening of pavement which is also a cycle path but is unusable to cyclists at this time of day.

On both sides to enable pupils to wait for parents to collect them from Park House Secondary school (as no school buses) and also prams and younger students from Falkland Primary School

Too narrow, overgrown.

Wider pavement for social distancing

Even without social distancing I cannot get my fiance's wheelchair down this street without knocking into the wing mirrors of parked cars. We haven't been outside since March so don't know what it's like now but I dread to think what would ... [more]

The pavement is really narrow especially when the bushes are overgrown like they currently are, it is impossible to walk side by side with someone in the same household let alone pass someone from another whilst keeping a metre apart - you ... [more]

The narrow gap makes it impossible for pedestrians to use this path safely. Ideally it should be widened to allow cycles to use this.

Very narrow pavement next to a very narrow road where lorries fly past and you have to skirt around masses of dog poo

Wider pavement to allow safe distancing - even if at the expense of traffic space.

Widen footpath to make walking to school safer

This mini-roundabout is busy. At most times of the day there is a steady flow of traffic form several directions. It is also one of the main crossing points for residents in the area heading into the Town Centre. Visibility of cars coming f ... [more]

The pavement on the West side has always been narrow. In places it is actually too narrow for two pedestrians to pass without one standing aside. Since the recent road junction alterations (which included an extra pedestrian crossing at Bea ... [more]

During recent road widening works, the East side pavement was altered and an existing barrier fence between the road and pedestrians was also altered. Honestly, the fence is so far away from the kerb that you could safely walk on the road-s ... [more]

This is a road to the station, canal towpath and pub. It has heavy pedestrian use, heavy traffic and no place for pedestrians to escape. There needs to be a foot way.
