122349Photo #122349Narrow path with cars parked makes it difficult to get up / down road, especially if a train has arrived when the college /schools go back.

121932Photo #121932If the council could cut the leaf growth around the bottom of the trees which goes across the footpath. Generally please advise all residents of RBC to keep their hedges, trees, not overhanging the pavement, there any so many unmaintained front garden bushes etc., that heavily impact on the available pavement space. There are also many raised pavement areas caused by the large trees causing lots of potential trip hazards appreciate there is not a magic money tree but any improvements would help.Temporary closure:

121590Photo #121590At this point there is a shared use path for cyclists and riders. There are also railings to herd people towards the crossing which I believe is a toucan. It will be very difficult to cross the road at the right time and maintain social distancing.Track:

120534Photo #120534The pavement on both sides of the road are narrow. There is a very narrow cycle way travelling South. Pedestrians could use cycle way going South. Travelling North a big problem for pedestrians. Suggest 20 mph speed limit for vehicles.Track:

The speed limit on this section of road is 40 mph with no divide between the path and road. The non traffic side of the road has a drop into vegetation.Cycleway:

15550Photo #15550Hampshire's mean-spirited implication that "Partnership" doesn't work anywhere else.

At best we can surmise that a project (we know not what), or projects, once worked well enough that they persuaded the railway company to permit the installation of this sign because they thought that rail travellers ought to know about it, whatever it was.
