128222Photo #128222The cycleway - towpath needs to be improved -both widened and the surface - to accommodate cyclists AND pedestrians, including cyclists with disabilities. It is not an either/or dichotomy. The recent changes (not 'improvements' except for historians) in the towpath between Marsden and Slaithwaite completely disregards the very real needs of cyclists, especially those with impaired use of their legs for whom using the towpath in adapted cycles is now impossible and for other cyclists difficult. The length of the cycleways from Marsden to Huddersfield needs someone to take a BROADER VIEW, not piecemeal bits and bobs where it is okay in patches, yet very difficult in others. We need a Minister for Cyclists to champion cyclists' needs, including being able to transport cyclists WITH THEIR BICYCLES on public transport, including on buses and trains. Franchises for PUBLIC transport should only receive government approval and financial support if they positively promote the means to facilitate combining cycling with public transport. That means doing something radical and visionary. We need to use less fossil fuel. Isn’t this obvious?Cycleway:

128218Photo #128218We have pavement on one side of the road only. There is a centre for disabled children at The Watershed and a Nursery further along Bridge Street. Cars park on the pavement. Bollards installed by the Council have been removed and not replaced - it is obvious. Parents with pushchairs are forced onto the road. Wheelchair users havent a chance to move along without obstructions. The speed in Carr Lane running parallel to Bridge Street was reduced to 20 mph in spite of warnings that it would push traffic onto Bridge Street which is now used as a cut-through and speedway to avoid queuing at the roundabout at the junction of Britannia Road and Carr Lane. I have photographs of a pair of ducks mown down in Bridge Street by a speeding motoist. Phone me: 07766713666.Track:

116537Photo #116537The canal path is wonderful ... but from Marsden to Huddersfield, there are several places with pinch points that are only wide enough for two people two pass in normal circumstances, and nowhere near enough room to pass while observing social distancing. Widening these spots would make the canal a great option for cycling, running, or walking to work.Cycleway:
