141168Photo #141168We need a comprehensive cycle path network. All we have now are disfunctional, unmaintained, bumpy cycle paths I cannot use.
1) renew and maintain present cycle paths widening where necessary;
2) build new cyclepaths;
3) make the town centre traffic free except for delivery lorries, buses, taxis, pedestrians and cyclists - build Park & Ride as in Chelmsford

131952Photo #131952Northlands Park forms a formal block on the sensible north-south cycle option in this part of Basildon.
Cycling through the park should be formally permitted and encouraged, with a wider path, improved surfacing, installation of lighting and of course removal of entrance barriers.

131946Photo #131946The crossing light sequence unnecessarily delays pedestrians and cyclists.
The crossing signals were designed so that the delay between operating cycles was after their operation. However as incorrectly installed the delay is after the button is pressed, before they operate approximately one minute later. This is a completely unnecessary delay to pedestrians and cyclists (who perhaps miss the bus or get more wet), whilst just stopping different motor traffic.

131941Photo #131941Footbridge steps hinder cycling.
Footbridge staircases on both sides of the railway should have channels installed on both of their side to accommodate bicycle wheels and allow bicycles to be pushed up and rolled down the slot rather than the steps.

131914Photo #131914Grossly overgrowing hedging planted on Council highway property of the west side of the path. This creates a narrow bottleneck on the path where it is at its busiest point and the lack of width and visibility causes a hazard at the junction with the path to Tiptree Grove.
All the hedging planted on the Council highway should be removed, not just trimmed back.

131912Photo #131912Narrow path used by upward of 2000 people movements per day (my estimate). A grass verge is available for passing but this should not be necessary. Surface breaking up and terrible lighting.
Reconstruction of the footpath and to a greater width is needed, suitable for walking and cycling. Huge improvements to the lighting are necessary.

131911Photo #131911Very narrow bridge used by upward of 2000 people movements per day (my estimate). Also terrible lighting, highly hazardous surface in winter with actual serious injuries occurring.
Replacement footbridge needed suitable for walking and cycling and winter surface treatment

Why not make Hyde way one way? then widen the footpath and create a cycle lane and bike parking for parents at drop off time.

119550Photo #119550The cycle path here is not continuous or of a good quality which means cyclists have to stay on the slip road with traffic joining the A127. Until about 3/4 of the way down where there is a vehicle entry point. It would be useful to improve the point of joining the cycle path.Cycleway:

20614Photo #20614this is the junction of cycle lanes in front of Gloucester Park Swimming Pool; this is the sight as you cycle up from the well designed cycle routes that take you beneath the awful roundabouts on the ring roads that link nethermayne, broadmayne, upper mayne, the town centre and laindon. non-cyclists in basildon may not realise how good the cycle routes are around the centre of the Town taking you off the ring roads.Route sign:
Good practice

19691Photo #19691Before the sharp turn where Sparrows Herne becomes Lee Wootten Lane, you can leave the road to join the cycle path besides Nethermayne (the A176).

This seems more sensible to me than turning left moments earlier to get to Nethermaybe via the Kingswood Gym as suggested on some maps

19689Photo #19689Crossing the A13 to leave Basildon for the village of Fobbing on National Cycle Route 13 is a challenge.

Here are cars having joined the slip road for the eastbound A13. Crossing this slip road in busy traffic is frightening as it is very difficult to see which cars are coming off the roundabout to join the slip road.

19688Photo #19688This photo is deceptive - a moment without traffic.

Crossing the A13 to leave Basildon for the village of Fobbing on National Cycle Route 13 is a frustrating challenge.

This is the crossing looking East, where westbound cars are coming off the A13.
