144995Photo #144995St Helens Road is already used by seasoned cyclists. it takes courage to use it with kids on the school/work run. It needs proper designated space for access to cycling for all. It forms part of an east-west arterial route across Swansea linking to Kingsway. It has nearby schools & residential areas around it. Need to slow the vehicles & give space to cyclists and manage how cyclists move near parked cars. Doors opening pushing cyclists into busy traffic which was already squeezing past is terrifying.Cycleway:

144782Photo #144782Phoenix Way is very wide with central 'right turn zones'. This popular business area would be greatly improved for commuting cyclists by removing the central zones and having dedicated cycle lanes each side instead. These could be made to link up with the local cycle path network and make cycle commuting far more appealing.Cycleway:

141578Photo #141578This junction is dangerous to navigate to access the cycle way. Also for pedestrians. The junction needs reworking for active travel. Its a nightmare! It needs to put active travel users as the priority, not be designed to abandon someone in the middle of a busy junction.Cycleway:

141342Photo #141342Dominated by motor traffic, moving and parked. Pavement cycling is common because people feel unsafe on road. More space needed for pedestrians and outside cafes for distancing. Close southbound carriageway to motor traffic, add trees, re-allocate parking space to pedestrians and cafe seating.Temporary closure:
