Cyclescape is a handy online tool for cataloging issues with cycling infrastructure, born out of work at Cambridge Cycling Campaign. It’s killer feature is being able to easily log an issue on a map – so you can all see exactly where the issue is under discussion. Richmond Cycling Campaign (along with other groups nationwide) are making increasing use of this tool – but because its used to log issues all over the country it can be a little bit hard to find specific items.
All cyclescape posts in the Richmond borough area are reviewed by RCC committee members and categorised by applying a set of “tags” – or labels, depending on the type of issue. This article provides some shortcuts to issues grouped according to themes that are important to RCC.
Themes – click through the links below to see lists of issues logged so far:
- All Richmond Borough Issues – on one map
- Main routes – issues logged regarding main routes through the borough
- A316 – issues logged regarding the A316 cycle tracks
- Quiet routes – issues regarding quiet routes through the borough
- School routes – issues on routes to or near schools
- Cycle parking – issues regarding cycle parking
- Signage – issues regarding signage
Council wards – we also tag by electoral ward; this will enable us to highlight all the issues in an particular area with the councillors who represent that ward. The wards are shown below and a complete list of councillors by ward is maintained by LBRUT.
Issues by ward can be accessed by the links below. Note that some wards do not have any issues logged so far; whilst others have plenty!
