Do you have any further comments or concerns about the location and/or operation of the crossings?

Comments:Cycle crossing of the Price Phillip Lock should not be subjected to regular closing (due to lock gate openings) otherwise this route will not be well used. Cycling facilities on either of the other crossings should be separated from vehicles and on both sides of the road so that cyclists do not have to cross back and forth across the road. Any cycle scheme should be a continuous flowing scheme to make it most attractive and fully encourage people to change to this mode of transport.
