The rather odd piece of public art beside RCR11 next to Monkton Lane. Like an ancient skeleton

Heading West on the cycleway at night the end of the crash barrier in the cycleway is virtually invisible against car headlights. Adding reflective strips or similar would make it more visible.

This is the covid 19 sign telling cyclists they should dismount. On an A road (A183 in Whitburn). Council logo on so my council tax is being wasted on this. I feel an email to a councillor coming on

Pavement in appalling condition. Needs to be widened to allow for cycling and walking.

When cycling from the riverside towards Hebburn, you can easily cut through this estate, but on the way back it’s very easy to take a wrong turn as all the houses look the same. Signposting would help.

While the paths have been designated for both cyclists and pedestrians. The paths are in a poor state, raised paving slabs, large gaps between the paving stones that narrow bike wheels become trapped in. Either, upgrading the path or adding … [more]

The road between Leam Lane and the John Reid Road is dangerous for both cyclists and pedestrians. As far as I'm aware, the path is not a designated cycle route, the path is in a terrible condition, the kerbs have not been dropped and there … [more]

Generally improve the condition, very dusty when dry, little bit rain and its very muddy with large puddles that cover the whole path

Create cycle path to give more space and distance from houses

This is such an obvious one. There's an existing narrow pavement here that goes all the way to Testos. With a small amount of investment this could be widened to be a perfect, well used either shared or cycle route to South Tyneside and the … [more]

I look forward to the inclined lifts being opened in 2038

This whole junction is terrible for cycling - there is a path but it is in awful condition and junction crossings need better surfacing and layout to proper standards. Section of path from A184 to Mill Lane is in really poor condition and … [more]

A19 Cycleway needs developed to/from Nissan/Sunderland/Boldon

Dedicated cycleway needed

This pavement links Testo's Roundabout in West Boldon to Whitemare Pool on the edge of Gateshead. The pavement could easily be turned into an excellent cycle super highway if it was repaid. The surface is a shocker at the moment. This would … [more]

Considering proximity to the College it is poor that presently there is no consideration of cyclists here at all

Bottom end of Dean Road should have cycleway or 'shared-use road. Relatively low car use and plenty of width

There is a joint cycle and walking path however it’s so dangerous as the cycle side is right next to where cars open there doors and let there children and dogs out of the cars, pedestrians don’t take any notice of where there walking and … [more]
