151840Photo #151840Add a traffic signal stage for cyclists from Linden Avenue.

While the Chatsworth Road and Storrs Road arms of the junction are signalised, the Linden Avenue arm (providing a cycle connection) is not - so to cross from Linden Avenue to Storrs Road as a cyclist, you need to find gaps in the opposing flow from Storrs Rd to A619 west, or nip across in the intergreens.

151844Photo #151844Add cycleway on St Augustines Rd westbound from Bacons Lane to the Boythorpe Rd roundabout.

There are already cycle lanes on Whitecotes Lane west of the roundabout, and adding a short segregated link here would make the Bacons Lane route from A61 to Whitecotes Lane more pleasant to use.
