Milton Keynes’ redway system. See #34394.

There are large lengths of murder strips on the A509. ie white lines a couple of feet from the curb. When cyclists ride inside these motor vehicles have a tendancy to only see the white line and do not move out to give cyclists space. Pleas ... [more]

Th eredway ends here. An extended cycleway heading into Stony Stratford town centre is required as this road is narrow and traffic can still be fast despite the 30mph speed limit.

Fast traffic here (despite the 30mph limit) makes it hard for cyclists to turn right at the mini-roundabout when heading towards or out of Stony Stratford

Cycle lane too narrow and often overgrown. More importantly it double white lines so it's illegal to overtake a cyclists doing more than 10mph. If the cyclists actually rides in the cycle lane it encourages a close pass and if they ride in ... [more]

It is only a mile or so from the village to Newport Pagnell but the vehicles travel this road fast enough and without consideration to cyclists and walkers so it is little used. Wider path for walkers and cycle lane would encourage car free ... [more]

This roundabout is a nightmare for cyclists and needs a safe means of getting round it by bike. Lanes on the approach roads are particularly hazardous. It's on my cycle commute and it's a real "who dares wins" roundabout because of the high ... [more]

Why is there no cycleway for cyclists to get safely across this junction? I know somebody who regularly cycled across it (using a folding bike) to access the nearby Coachway. The lane structure over the roundabout is a complete barrier to s ... [more]

The advisory cycle lanes here are too narrow - narrower than the recommended distance from the kerb that cyclists should adopt, of 75-100cm. They encourage frustration from motorists if you cycle outside the lane. but as they are advisory t ... [more]

There is a cycleway along the A509 here (not the route through Emberton Park). It isn't large enough for people to pass even without social distancing. Last time I rode it I got a faceful of hedge. The alternative route through the park is ... [more]

Lots of people use this footpath to walk and cycle to Emberton Park from Olney. However it is very difficult to cycle there safely especially with small children. This section is a pinch point, with a narrow walkway and constant traffic alo ... [more]

A redway should be created here

Make all cycle redways link up properly and put more signposts up! Simple plus when you build an estate the cycle paths are there and signposted! Please!! I have just put my marker anywhere to get my point through!

The redway system normally has two nicely placed poles painted a bright yellow, e.g. #72502. Those standards have not been kept up at this development. Even the (correctly spelled) graffiti suggests a negative connotation: Public pole danci ... [more]

The dense bush on the left hides cyclists from traffic approaching this junction in Milton Keynes, see #64450.

Central Milton Keynes Pernicious signage that suggests that this cycleway is only for the walker.

Central Milton Keynes See #47932.

Central Milton Keynes the sign screams NO CYCLING ON FOOTWAY but this is a cycleway - and that is why they have not used a NO CYCLING sign. Blue signs are advisory, not compulsory, and I view it as an abuse of that principle that ... [more]

Redway blocked by a tight chicane. The alternative here is to have a raised table so that the footway is not angled down and motor vehicles slow down.

Milton Keynes - more misinformation as a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign is used on that lamppost rather than a no-cycling. See #47932.

Unsigned path opposite Bletchley station - it's not even on OpenCycle Map.

There's quite a ramp at this redway bridge where the embankment has settled down over time. Note that some of the railings are missing or stolen.
