    1. Queen’s Road. 2. Pot holes, disintegrating speed bumps, more surface, used as a rat run for car drivers & delivery trucks to turn left from Cold Bath Rd to Otley Rd to avoid the traffic lights on Cold Bath Road; it’s also used as a car park as there are no parking restrictions. 3. Impose 20mph speed limit, establish parking restrictions for non-residents, renew the surface properly.

    1. West End Avenue. 2. Traffic coming at you and if on a bike, you’ve nowhere to go given parked cars on either side of the street, appalling road surface, not safe for pedestrians to cross as they can’t be seen between the parked cars. 3. Reduce parking, put in one way system, paint in a zébra crossing or two; resurface the whole road properly

    4. More cycling only lanes with good signage of a décent width, 20 mph speed limit throughout town in residential areas, more cycling parking with sufficient space between bars for a bike and a person to get in and lock/unlock (have you tried the ones at Waitrose ?)
