    Queen’s Road – potholes, disintegrating speed bumps, more surface, used as a rat run for car drivers and delivery trucks to turn left from Cold Bath Road to Otley Road to avoid the traffic lights on Cold Bath Road. It’s also used as a car park as there are no parking restrictions.

    Impose 20mph speed limit, establish parking restrictions for non-residents, renew the surface properly.

    Cold Bath Road is a nice local shopping area with a variety of shops, pubs and cafes. It is rather spoiled by the constant through traffic. Most of the people spending money live locally and arrive on foot.

    It would be good to reduce traffic. Make it one way, widen pavements and enforce the 20mph limit? Or modal filter?

    Beech Grove is a problem – the key link from Otley Road to town, but not a good cycle route because of conflict with traffic caused by limited road space – in turn caused by parked cars.

    Protected bike lane or modal filter or cycle path across West Park Stray.
