Missing section of cycleway
The Hardwick Road cycleway abruptly terminates at the corner of Beech Road, within sight of the next section at South Gates roundabout. Cyclists wishing to continue towards town without being obstructed by motorists need to either use six beg-button crossings of the A149 Hardwick Road to cross over and back, or use four beg-button crossings to head towards Hardings Way (where another three beg-buttons and currently a dismount greets them), or they can illegally slalom contraflow through a parking bay, footway and oncoming traffic - and unsurprisingly many do the latter.
All of the houses by the parking bay blocking the way have their own drives and it is not that much used. It could be repainted as a two-way cycleway, protected with posts and the slopes into the ends made shallower.
