176832Photo #176832The pavement narrows an the curve of the road mean that cars take the corner at speed. Children on the way to or from school can step off the path and also the narrow path makes it hard for pushchairs to negotiate. Cutting the hedge back which happens on a regular basis helps but still the path is narrow and the cars speed round the bend. There is a high level of risk at the junction for pedestrians.Track:

174456Photo #174456Nocton Fen Lane should be linked to the Lincoln cycling network.
Nocton Fen Lane is a single-track farming lane running from Dunston and Nocton to just outside Bardney (5.9 miles long google maps).
Drivers avoid this lane due to its width restrictions, condition, lack of passing places and greater distance preferring the quicker Branston Causeway B1190/B1202 route(4.6 miles long google maps)
There are only a handful of homes at Wasps Nest served by this lane at its Westerly point and remains their second-choice route.
I cycle Nocton Fen Lane regularly and know it to be used far more by cyclists than any car drivers.
Once the Lane meets the B1190 there is no safe passage for pedestrians or cyclists from the end of the lane to the Water railway and on to Lincoln,

Some footpath does exist close to Bardney bridge, however a path of 0.3 miles on the Southern side is required to the B1190 to achieve this end, no crossing of the B1190 is needed.

In short, the provision of one section (0.3 miles) of footpath would introduce 6 miles of cycling and walking routes to the already impressive Lincoln cycle network.
The villages of Metheringham and Potterhanworth could also have access to this new route.

165738Photo #165738Improvements to the current cycle/pedestrian route. The route is currently used by many for leisure and also for commuting to and from Lincoln. However the cycle path is highly prone to flooding, especially since the new bypass and the change in elevation to the path, forcing cyclists to use the busy main road that is not fit for use by cyclists, and is very dangerous due to the traffic attempting overtaking manoeuvres.Cycleway:

155171Photo #155171Uphill Waddington continues to grow. Many school children use the bus to North Hykeham. A cycle path would be brilliant for kids health, and prevent some using the treacherous route along Meadow Lane. Also to meet up with friends at other times. It would only take around 20 mins to cycle this route. As these two areas continue to grow this would be a "no brainer" cycle route.Cycleway:

155139Photo #155139The whole of the pedestrian and cycle path needs addressing. It’s more of a hazard than a benefit.

155076Photo #155076A widened, shared, pavement/cycleway is required along Lincoln Road, between the Skellingthorpe roundabout and the Sustrans Route 64, where it crosses the Lincoln Road.
At present there is a rather narrow, poorly surfaced pavement along one side of this road. Cyclists use the pavement because the road is narrow and fast-moving motor traffic makes cycling on the road dangerous.
Provision of this pavement/cycleway would make access to the Sustrans route 64 much safer from the Birchwood, Swanpool, Hartsholme areas of Lincoln.
The present B1378 (Skellingthorpe Road) which becomes the Lincoln Road after crossing the A46, is already a pavement/cycleway between the A46 and the Tritton Road (A1192).

155045Photo #155045The path here is gradually narrowing due to grass overgrowth and the A15 can be busy at this point.

155025Photo #155025Footpath/cycle lane is too narrow for more than one user, meaning that to pass oncoming users or to overtake, someone has to move over to the grass. As someone who both runs down this path and cycles down it to work at RAF Waddington, I've suffered rolled ankles and flat tyres due to hidden dangers in the grass. This is a popular commuter path to RAF Waddington, and its expansion would result in a lot less traffic on the road, and alleviate some of the parking concerns on the station.Cycleway:

154996Photo #154996There is a path under the A46 - if it could be improved so that it was easier to cycle underneath there would be a much safer way of getting from the sustrans cycle track to the south of the city. Ideal for children going to secondary school. At the moment it is necessary to cross the A46 at Skellingthorpe Roundabout which is very dangerous and congested.Cycleway:

148489Photo #148489For the last few years minimum removal of overgrown foliage has been undertaken with the result that the footpath on Godsons Holt is more than 2 feet narrower than the original width in many places. This is particularly concerning when children go back to school and end up walking in the road. Visibility for vehicles coming out of St Edmunds Road is also severely compromised. Most of the bushes causing the problems are self seeded and of little value. They need a very serious prune at the least or removal altogether. The grass also needs clearing back to give to restore the pavement pavement width.Track:
