  • Icon 104928 There is no bicycle parking near me, I am keen to get a bike through the cycle to work scheme but I live in a building with a large number of flats and cannot take bicycles inside. We need a secure bike storage station if I am able to get a bike. There are a number of places one could be erected around the side roads. There is a church and primary school at the bottom of Church Walk which may present a useful area.

  • Icon 104576 Although there is maybe 20 stands, they are often all full by 8.45am. With the increase in local users following residential and commerical developments, more cycle parking is required please.
  • Icon 104541 It’s a street with a lot of condensed housing, where many people don’t have cars. There are no bike hangars within 5 minutes walk. All the hangars in our area are full with waiting lists. It’s also not a particularly busy place to park for cars
  • Icon 104530 Situated at the junction of the A6 and Crawley Green Road is the entrance to a cycle path following the railway towards Luton Airport Parkway Station. I cycle to Parkway station from Crawley Green Road and find the turn onto the cycle path tricky. I either have to stop in the road to lift my bike up the kerb, or transition onto the pavement a little earlier where there is a dropped kerb for the pedestrian crossing. I do not like having to use the pavement here, especially with pedestrians and it being narrow, not to mention illegal. But nor do I like stopping on a dual carriageway with fast traffic around me. For people coming from the A6 their only option is to try and get up the kerb. I have marked in white on the image, the points at which I can either mount the pavement at the crossing or stop to get up the kerb. I've also sketched a possible design in red, for a new dropped kerb, short on-pavement cycle path, and a railing to ensure some division between cycles and pedestrians to avoid collisions when coming off the road. I feel that this design would allow people to exit the road at speed, and give a short distance to safely slow down before turning, without being in the road. Making this junction safer to navigate. The alternative would be a dropped kerb immediately in front of the cycle path, but this is likely to cause cyclists to slow down suddenly and turn quickly, potentially confusing and hazardous for drivers and pedestrians alike.
