A marked cycle route, used by cyclists. Suggest no parking and closure to motor vehicles except for access at Albert Road end.

If any queues develop outside shops then this will made problem worse.I think either the pavement should be widened temporarily or the bus stop relocated to quieter spot.Track:

135560Photo #135560Make this road one way (from West to East) with a cycle lane.

Sight lines are poor for cars with the hill and bends, the road is narrow and cars frequently try to pass cycles when it's not really safe to do so. Also the edges of the road are in a very poor state which forces cycles further out into the road compounding the problem.

124670Photo #124670Remove the cycle way from the pavement/footpath going along West Hill into the town centre and put a cycle lane on the road. Cyclist ride far too fast on the pavement don’t take due car when crossing Hookfield and fail to dismount when going under the railway bridge.
I’ve had several near misses where I’ve had to quickly move out of their way and had abuse when asked people to dismount.
Pavements are footpaths and the clue Is in the name. Having bicycles and i suspect motorised scooters (per one of the covid briefings) share the same space is asking for a serious accident waiting to happen.

You could widen the pavement as can only get one person vat a time. Struggle if they have a guide dog or a sighted person guiding them. Only need one person waiting vin the bustop and blind people in the road. Could may be move bustop into town cente or into church carpark if possible. Or even aroun the corner where all the buses are just sitting there !Track:
