175162Photo #175162Unsafe route through bushes, hedges and across the golf course between Windingbrook Lane and Collingtree village. Limited visibility, and lack of security, lighting, and CCTV all along this route means there is no safe way of to walk from East Hunsbury to Collingtree, despite children having to walk this path everyday to school in the village. Please can a safe and accessible route be created for vulnerable pedestrians.Track:

I would not venture into this area on my own even in the daytime due to fear of attack. This badly designed housing estate has prioritized cars over pedestrians and cyclists, forcing them to use unsafe routes through parkland. I have to walk over 10 minutes extra to keep to safe roads only and avoid unsafe cut-throughs via parkland/woods.Track:

179838Photo #179838Unsafe bridleway between Collingtree and East Hunsbury. Lone female pedestrians feel at greatest risk here, especially in the dark winter mornings and evenings. Better lighting and CCTV is needed all along this route.Track:
Problem
track
178986Photo #178986Unsafe area due to limited street lighting and dense wooded area on the side where the pavement is located which leads to very icy pavement. Vulnerable and lone pedestrians feel unsafe when walking along this steep pavement (even in the day) as they could be easily pulled into the woods and assaulted, and/or fall due to ice on path in winter. Pavement is needed on the other side of the road which backs on to housing as this would be a lot safer, would link into existing pavements and would be in the sun more during the winter, reducing icy surfaces.Track:
