Requested improvements

Better protection of cyclists using the A23 cycle route. Review all the junctions with side roads with a view to restricting turns by motor vehicles that are endangering north and southbound cyclists.

Ensure Ditchling Road cycle facility kept free of parked vehicles

Cycle route from Preston Park along Surrenden Road to Varndean college

Cycle routes and speed reduction, Tongdean Lane area.

Dyke Road cycle facility needs enforcement against constant obstruction by parked cars and the advisory lanes are far too narrow, particularly at the northern end. Needs improved design and double yellow lines or other way to prevent obstructive parking. (Dyke Road Avenue – Withdean Ward).

Re-design of Dyke Road – Dyke Road Avenue cycle facility and extend across the double roundabout junction with the A2083 (King George VI avenue) and the A27. Liaise with neighbouring authority to ensure a route for cycling and away from traffic exists right up to the Devil’s Dyke viewing point. (Often choked with cars).

Ensure safer connections for cyclists at all arms of the A27 roundabouts. Need Dutch style design.

Ensure speed reduction on Mill Road (National Speed Limit at present for most of it) and greater safety & priority for cyclists using tunnel and following NCN20. (With Patcham Ward). Reverse priority at tunnel so that drivers coming down into Patcham have to slow down. (Currently the opposite).

Solution for Peacock Lane/A23 junction, the site of increased risk for cyclists as eastbound traffic cuts across the A23 cycle lane into Peacock Lane with inadequate observation. Consider closing it to motor vehicles. Peacock Lane needs to be 2-way for cycling.
