142523Photo #142523Pedestrian crossing timing needs to be changed to prioritise pedestrians. This is a 2-stage crossing and the wait is unduly long. The road is often busy & queued and the long wait results in pedestrians crossing on red. This is an important crossing for the shops and heavily used.Track:

When turning right out of Cedars Rd into Mill Hill road cars and buses from Barnes approach very rapidly from the right (Station Road & mini-roundabout into Mill Hill Rd). The cycle route crossing should be moved further east on Mill Hill Rd or traffic lights installed to enable safe crossing. Several near misses as cars turn left off Station Road much too fast and mini-roundabout does little to slow them. Cedars Rd is not obvious because of high wall and vegetation. It’s an accident waiting to happen.Cycleway:

135998Photo #135998The pavement here is already extremely narrow, but the council with its complete contempt for pedestrians has allocated pavement space for cars to park on. This means that the pavement is completely inaccessible to disabled people and anyone with a pushchair or pram. Pedestrians have to walk in the road. This whole road (South Worple Way) needs to be free of parked cars and it needs to be filtered so that it is impossible to drive more than a few metres along it. It's used by a lot of people walking and cycling to get between Barnes and East Sheen/Mortlake while avoiding the traffic and associated pollution on the Upper Richmond Road. It's not wide enough for cars so just get rid of them. It is insane to force pedestrians to walk in the road because cars are on the pavement.Track:
Problem

135954Photo #135954This pavement is very narrow and cars regularly park on it so you cant get passed safely... and they ignore parking regulations...there are many children in the Close who have the right to be able to get to school safely especially now with Covid 19 and the need for social distancing. we have asked for help many times over the years and nothing has been done. Cars are swinging open doors and driving on the path close to and endangering children.Track:
Problem
track
135854Photo #135854All along White Hart Lane and the surrounding streets, drivers are allowed by the council to park on the pavement. This means that the pavement space available for pedestrians is very narrow in most places. It's difficult for two people to walk next to each other, so it's generally not a pleasant space to be if you are out walking. There are places on some of the side streets where pedestrians have to walk in the road because drivers take up so much space on the pavement. There's definitely no space for social distancing when two pedestrians need to pass each other. The council needs to remove cars from the pavements and just tell people that if they don't have a private space to park their car then they shouldn't own a car because very few people actually need a private car in London. Provide a car sharing scheme instead.Track:

134611Photo #134611All the "Royal" roads have narrow footpaths requiring walking in the road to social distance.

Now that traffic has returned, cars are once again using them as rat runs at high speeds, especially on Royal and Windsor roads which don't have speed bumps.

The roads should be filtered to allow save use of the road for social distancing.
