A former railway bridge in Carmichael Street that Highways England has proposed for filling in. This one is probably no loss since the area either side has been developed and the railway cutting filled in.

Cycle parking near nothing in particular and, apparently a cycleway through to nowhere in particular,

[Image taken 13.5.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This cargo cycle is around 93cm wide. The transparent door at the front means children (or pets) inside can see out. But also - and critically for some users - that you don't need to lift people/ ... [more]

[Image taken 17.6.21] Marygate car park, York. This gap is now 65cm due to the unchecked plant growth. Previous images see: #170159 and links. Other images today see: #170258, #170267, #170271, #170277

Traffic-free shopping street in Hexham

Delightfully traffic-free lanes - until the moment I wanted to take this photo.

Beautiful quiet straight lanes

  • Icon 170230 No safe way for cyclists & pedestrians to cross the A47 at the Longwater interchange.
  • Icon 170229 Very difficult to cross William Frost Way due to the high level of traffic
  • Icon 170228 Somewhere along Coleridge Road, N8 Car door fatality
  • Icon 170226 Travelling against the flow of traffic will cause accidents and chaos
  • Icon 170225 Mablethorpe is a one road town, any ideas which would cause any obstruction on the high street to the traffic will cause utter chaos and grid lock the town!
  • Icon 170224 Whoever keeps coming up with these unworkable and silly ideas, needs sacking!
  • Icon 170223 It can't be improved
  • Icon 170222 Whole one-way system needs to be a 20 mph Zone, this would be beneficial to people cycling in the road. Also those walking on narrow footpaths and motorists that come across queuing traffic.
