Dreadful subsidence

I see the point, but I wonder how many drivers on this short stub of private road bother going around to the left - there's not much need. On a bike I certainly wouldn't bother.

Three more stands at the Royal Standard

Dreadful road surface on Mill Road, caused by heavy vehicles accelerating away from the lights - even with Mill Road bridge closed to most motor vehicles. Cambridgeshire County Council say : At this time we do not feel that any action is n ... [more]

Image taken 14.5.21] Station Road (Lendal Bridge) junction with Rougier Street, York. The kerbstone has come away from the rest of the pavement. Location see: #168910

[Image taken 14.5.21] Station Road (Lendal Bridge) junction with Rougier Street, York. The next stage in the damage process is when chunks of the cracked tarmac come out. But it's not just the resulting hole(s) but also the lumps that are h ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Station Ave junction with Station Road, at the city walls, York. At least one light seems to be out. The pavement on the eastern (Lendal Bridge) side is very narrow. The width is further reduced by scaffolding for work ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Ramp to/from rail station, York near Royal Mail building between Leeman Road and West Esplanade/the river Ouse. Light is out and it’s dark. Same issue, same time see also: #168906 and links.

[Image taken 14.5.21] Ramp to/from rail station, York near Royal Mail building between Leeman Road and West Esplanade/the river Ouse. The light is out. Same issue, same time see also: #168907, #168908.

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. There is no reference to ‘Leeman Road’ as given on the cycle map as an alternative for when the gates to/from the station here are closed. There's no other help ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. A third sign very close to the station entrance/exit but with limited information and nothing that will help someone who finds the gates are locked. Other images on ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. Two detailed signs. No help if you get to the rail station between 22.30 and 05.30 when the gates are locked. Neither includes the name ‘Leeman Road’ – the ac ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. The largest text clearly suggests the information is only for, relevant to, people cycling yet the bridge was replaced to make it accessible so information should r ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. Providing a map is a good idea. However, the map is aimed at people on cycles. It covers the whole city. The detail of the city centre is even less accessible as it ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. There are no clues the gates to the station are locked. There is a cycle map (right) but it is high up and on top of a bank. It’s therefore inaccessible to many. ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. The gates cannot be seen from even quite close to. There are three route signs and a map of the city for cyclists but no, ‘Gates are closed 22.30-05.30’ warning ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. The gates are locked overnight. There’s no sign alerting people. See also: #168899, #168900, #168901, #168902, #168903, #168904, #168905

The alignment of Abbotsford Place is continued in the form of a path, but is blocked by the parked car transporter on Cumberland Street. There is no formal crossing or even dropped kerbs.

[Image taken 13.5.21] West Esplanade, beneath Scarborough Bridge, York. Familiar face during her first week back promoting Sustrans (www.sustrans.org.uk/) for over a year due to the covid-19 epidemic.

Car parking in Laurieston all over the place, and some random cycle parking. I guess the streetlighting is nearing replacement.

Car parking in the rebuilt Laurieston area is perhaps not how the designers intended.

Roadworks closing the Herbertson Street cycle track.

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

Maybe not terribly useful for cycling, but the path that crosses Buccleuch Street on its way from West Graham Street to Hill Street and Renfrew Street does not have dropped kerbs at either side. There are also some cycle parking stands l ... [more]

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The signs and diversion map are on the fencing one panel along to the left of the Environment Agency logo. Is this somewhere people will see the signs (explanation of the works), and the cycle dive ... [more]

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The sign is very large but people will need to be looking around them to stay safe. See also (sign content): #168886, cycle route map: #168887, location of this information: #168889

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. A basic overview of the diversions in place from the Millennium Bridge in the south of the city to Scarborough Bridge in the north. All are due to floodworks. See more images related to the signage ... [more]

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. This is the only explanation of the works around replacing the floodgates under Lendal Bridge I have seen on the route. It's on the Environment Agency's works compound (next to the gates) but in a ... [more]

[Image taken 13.5.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This cargo cycle is around 93cm wide. See also: #168884.

[Image taken 13.5.21] Bootham Terrace, York. Sleek, stylish cargo cycle from Butchers & Bicycles https://www.butchersandbicycles.com/. See also: #168885 for width. This is an example of what I call a 'York' cycle. A cycle is that is wider o ... [more]

Barriers on the path from the B1049 to a new housing development - although it's shown as a through route for cycling on OpenCycleMap.

New private development off Impington Lane - it's actually shown as a through route for cycling on OpenCycleMap, although there are in fact Cyclists Dismount signs on this path to the B1049. (And more car and cycle storage space to the righ ... [more]

There are quite a lot of covered Sheffield stands on this new private development (eg at both ends of this shed).

New private development off Impington Lane - it's actually shown as a through route for cycling on OpenCycleMap, although there are in fact Cyclists Dismount signs on the path to the B1049.

Vision Park, Histon - barriers at the far end of this path are clearly meant to exclude cycles.

These barriers are clearly meant to block cycle access to Chivers Way and Vision Park, although the companies there have enough cycle parking.

  • Icon 168926 Low Traffic Neighbourhood
  • Icon 168924 Dangerous road crossing here
  • Icon 168923 Dangerous road crossing here
  • Icon 168922 The footpath is in poor condition and gets narrow where the hedgerow is thick, the path needs re-building in places, widening generally and the hedgerow needs cutting back.
  • Icon 168921 The pavement from the mini roundabout to the bus stop near the entrance to Crofton Road is narrow and could be widened without narrowing the highway
  • Icon 168919 The lack of footpath on the west side of the road means the crossing is inaccessible without detouring in to The Tithings when walking southwards from the A6.
  • Icon 168918 A modal filter here that allows cyclists, in addition to the current pedestrian access, to pass through, would provide a safe route from the East of Kibworth Beauchamp to the North, and the primary school.
  • Icon 168913 Comedy path layout here. Apparently cyclists only access Everards Meadows from one direction? get rid of the harpin turns! Ask someone who cycles to design this stuff
  • Icon 168912 Everards state the requirement for all users to take care and keep left on their website. I think we need some large signs to get folk to keep left and keep their dogs under control. It's getting busy
  • Icon 168869 The traffic lights on the railway bridge are only changed by the detection of a car or larger vehicle. If a person is on a bicycle they have to wait for a vehicle to change the lights. This is particularly poor as it is on one of Coventry’s designated cycle routes.
