162763Photo #162763This is the Cherry Garden Ave entrance to the Three Hills Sportsground. An existing off-road path links with Cornwallis Ave, then, via quiet Wilton Road, to off-road paths around Radnor Park and Folkestone Central Station. This route offers easy, safe access to Harvey Grammar School (back entrance), Morrisons, Three Hills Sports Centre, The Academy (further down Cornwallis Ave), Folkestone Sports Centre.Cycleway:

162752Photo #162752We need a junction here for cyclists. There is no right turn into Dover Rd for traffic. There used to be a junction on the now island by the viaduct for traffic to turn right. It was removed some time ago. Why not reinstate it for cycles only.Cycleway:

152095Photo #152095South Eastern should allow tandems off peak on the London to Kent Javellin trains so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with their partners. Bad for tourism!Cycleway:

141914Photo #141914There needs to be a cycle path between Lydd and New Romney. This is a busy road with fast-moving traffic. If done, it would link the cycle path that goes to Camber with the sea wall from Littlestone to DymchurchCycleway:

140341Photo #140341Footpath and overgrown path exists from cycle path near salt storage to Sandling Road junction. Opening up the overgrown path for bikes would make that section of a20 much safer, especially when m20 is diverted on a20.Cycleway:

140340Photo #140340Very busy and narrow section of A20. There is a footpath, but it is narrow due to weeds and bushes. 2 kerbs would need lowering to make a great cycle path on dangerous section of a20Cycleway:

137902Photo #137902Busy road not safe for cyclists (one was killed last week) and also difficult to cross as a pedestrianCycleway:
Problem

137693Photo #137693This road is a busy route for the zoo and industrial estate thats all up hill. This makes it dangerous to anyone not in a vehicle. If there was a path or cycle path along one side it would avoid dangerous overtakes of bicycles and allow walkers to reach the Village and cafe below. Especially when the zoo has an event on with hundreds of people camping and their only way to a shop is to walk down this road. It can be tricky for vehicles too as there are many blind bends so a walker or slow cycle could be a shock.Cycleway:

137364Photo #137364There is no safe cycle way between the junction of Tile Kiln Lane and the bottom of Castle Hill, access to the countryside. Needs creation of a cycle route to link with a safe route across the roundabout and bridge over the M20Cycleway:
Problem

136273Photo #136273This area has multiple cafes, restaurants and bars which would benefit from a pedestrian square for outdoor seating and more geenery, encouraging local business. The road could be closed between Castle Hill Avenue and Christchurch Road to create the square, and this would also deter shorter car journeys by locals and put through traffic back onto the main Shorncliffe RDTemporary closure:

136253Photo #136253Access to Castle Hill from Folkestone is very difficult due to M20. This 3 lane bridge could have one lane removed and turned into a shared path for cycles and walking. Crossings on the roundabouts would enable access to Castle Hill and beyond.Track:

128391Photo #128391This is a narrow, busy road. it needs a section of separated cycle path to link two off road cycle routes which will join up the existing facilities and create one continuous safe route along the coast from Romney Marsh to the towns of Hythe and FolkestoneCycleway:

40191Photo #40191Country roads are lethal. Look at the A28 between Ashford and Canterbury (to name just 1 out of thousands) nothing to do with Boris Johnston ofcourse, more a job of the highway authorities. But they prioritize over lorries to walkers and bicyclists and waste money on signs like 50 miles an hour through suburban areas. Motorists think they have a right to push anything, not on 4 wheels or more, of the road. Fingers up is their message.Dutch-style cycleway:
