152283Photo #152283Existing lack of footway along Walton Cardiff Lane between Ashchurch Road and Walton Cardiff. A footway could be provided along part of the highway utilising some of the Town Council owned Derek Graham Memorial Play Area site.Track:
Problem
track
152282Photo #152282There is currently a gap in the shared footway/cycleway along Ashchurch Road alongside Knights Way. The verge in this location is owned or managed by local authorities and there should be sufficient space for a footway and cycleway to be provided between Pyke Road and the end of Canterbury Lees whilst maintaining green space and planting areas.Cycleway:
Problem

148515Photo #148515Although the footway along Church Street is relatively wide as the town becomes busier more space is required. Some road space utilised for inappropriate on-street parking on the north western side of the carriageway could be reallocated for pedestrians and cyclists. This would potentially help both traffic flow and physical distancing.Track:
Problem
track
148514Photo #148514There is no footway along this stretch of Stoke Road (C86). Stoke Road is an unlit rural road operating with the National Speed Limit. Although available space in the highway boundary is limited consideration could be given to providing a footway along this stretch of road connecting Tredington to the Odessa/The Hoo and providing safe pedestrian access for the properties located at the south of the Parish of Tewkesbury.Track:
