Access/ Public Transport
Improved walking routes to rugby club and Lancaster Way
Pedestrian crossing at railway station and improved walking route from Tescos – currently not safe
Pedestrianise the High Street
Install zebra crossing on Forehill (current one is in the wrong place)
Zebra crossing at Forehill car park exit
Shared cycle ways and footpaths a problem
Review of bus shelters to ensure they are wheelchair accessible eg shelter at junction of Witchford Rd and Cambridge Road not accessible due to seat obstruction.
New shuttle bus; stops are needed at Kings Av Estate and Highwood Grange estate.
Bus service between city centre and station
Zebra crossing at Brays Lane
More zebra crossings needed in Ely
Dropped kerbs on Brays Lane – location too dangerous for crossing
Parking enforcement on Market St for better bus access
Better management of taxi facilities – they cause congestion
Increase taxi rank space at Market St
Convert Newnham St to a bus terminal and taxi holding area
Set down bays outside Costa Coffee for Dial a Ride
Better cycle facilities at Station
Grit new bus routes
Cycle provision
Cycle bridge and safe route needed to rugby club
Contra flow cycle lane at Gallery/High Street
Refresh existing cycle markings
Cambridge Road cycle lane inbound – dangerous pinch point
Proper cycle lanes – not narrow shared footpaths or lanes that stop abruptly
No cycling on footpaths
More cycle parking in City Centre and station
No contra flow cycle lanes
Provision in traffic calming for cyclists
More cycle lanes from housing areas into City centre
Narrowing streets for traffic calming put pressure on cyclists sharing the road.
Cyclists should be able to pass outside speed bumps, rather then to have to go over them
Re-do road markings (getting worn)
Cycle markings and signs at St Marys St
Improved cycle route along Lisle Lane
Park and ride at Tesco’s site
Re-model road layout at Angel Drove/Station road junction (a yellow box at the roundabout?)

Change traffic priorities at Broad St, Forehill and Lisle Lane
Mini roundabout at Waterside/Lisle Lane junction
Mini roundabout at Lisle lane/Broad Street junction
No right turn Broad Street to Back Hill (traffic to proceed to roundabout and return)
Broad Street – one way system
Broad Street – roundabouts at both ends
Southern Link Road needed
Forehill one way system – (uphill)
Forehill traffic give way to Broad Street traffic (change priorities)
Dangerous to turn right from Broad Street to Waterside/Lisle Lane
New traffic priorities at end of Lisle lane are confusing
New Barns Rd from Newnham Street virtually one way due to parked cars
Badly located traffic lights at High Flyer
Move Post office late collection box on Lisle Lane – causes blockages
Improved traffic calming on Barton Road – heavy lorries using it and breaking the speed limit
Remove cobbled/raised traffic calming. They are dangerous and damage cars.
Change parking layout on High St so parking is parallel to kerb
Car share schemes needed
Need a park and ride for Ely
Allow parking both sides of Market St
More 20 mph speed limits
Sainsbury’s lorries using Broad St
Inconsiderate parking by blue badge holders
