Cycle parking at Cambridge's first Passivhaus student accommodation (graduate rooms for King's College)

Pothole inspection on Grange Road - how long will it be before the hole gets fixed? And why can't this be done by a small electric vehicle?

No traffic lights, no problem.

Advisory cycle lanes and double yellow lines at the south end of Histon Road

Advisory cycle lanes at the south end of Histon Road - but I do quite like the cycle symbols on the outside of the buss top.

Histon Road cycleways built to the minimum width, and with no protection from close passing motor traffic. A short section of single-yellow will allow motor vehicles to park in this cycle lane.

An upstand high enough to allow a bike to be parked, at a turn into a side road, see #167163

The junction of Histon Road with Canterbury Street (and other side streets) has been designed with an upstand of 25mm, enough to a rider off their bike unless they turn sharply.

South City Way at junction of Victoria Road and Allison Street.

Cycle parking stands next to the South City Way on Victoria Road. The spacing could be better, and that big sign will get in the way of pedals.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

At most of the toucan crossings on the South City Way, the cycle track is flush with the footway adjacent to the crossing, but at this one, on this side only, the cycle track dips down below the kerb height, creating a step down, just where ... [more]

The incident happened at around 1.05pm on Sunday, 11 April, 2021 on the A710 near Southwick. A white Peugeot van travelling west was involved in a crash with a cyclist riding a black Trek bicycle which was heading east at Southwick Bridge. Emergency services attended and 44-year-old Helen Renton from Dumfries was pronounced dead at the scene. Her next of kin has been informed. The driver and passenger from the van were both uninjured. The road was closed for approximately 9 hours for collision investigations to be carried out at the scene. Sergeant Leigh McCulloch from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit based in Lockerbie said: “Tragically as a result of this crash the cyclist has lost her life and our thoughts at this time are with her family and friends. “Several people stopped to help at the scene and our inquiries continue to establish what happened. I’d ask anyone who saw the crash to get in touch with officers as a priority to help our investigation. “I’d ask anyone who was recording with dash cam on the A710 who may have captured either the van or bicycle prior to the crash, to check their systems and provide officers with any relevant footage as soon as possible.” Those with information should report this to Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 1688 of 11 April 2021.

  • Icon 167111 A proper dedicated and cordoned off cycle superhighway along the A270 up to the university campuses and new accommodation is required. The current cycle lane is totally unfit for purpose and dangerous. with cars frequently parking on it and broken glass and potholes, not to mention the danger of cycling along a major road.
  • Icon 167110 Queens Park Road is very wide and straight and would be ideal for a north - south cycle way from the seafront through Hanover and up to Elm Grove. Queens Park Road could be made one-way to accommodate a two-way cycle superhighway and Freshfield Road could also be made one-way to create a ring road around Queens Park.
  • Icon 167109 The sign showing the pavement is a cycleway has not been visible for more than two years. The sign is still there but points towards the wall and is bent. It is a cycleway, not only for pedestrians.
