A vandalised 20mph reminder sign, with a contradictory 30mph sign on the joining side road. Also, a commercial vehicle parked on the footway, including tactile paving, at the junction.

Portwall Lane The zebra crossing appears to be part of the cycle route - but normally some kind of parallel crossing is used as it is not legal to ride over a zebra.

Leaving Coldfair Green


30mph roundal

The 20mph outside the school ends and reverts to 30mph half way along the school building.

The University Avenue mandatory cycle lane chock-a-block with parked cars, and pavement parking on the opposite side where there is no cycle lane.

Vehicles parked in the unmarked mandatory cycle lane (indicated only by red chips in the asphalt), and a 30mph sign marking (possibly) the end of the 20mph outside schools on Gibson Street and on the corner of University Avenue and Kelvin … [more]

[Image taken 29.11.21] Crichton Avenue, junction with Burton Stone Lane, York. Illustrating that it’s used by buses, how limited the space for larger vehicles is, the position of the red vehicle cutting the cycle lane and how far back the … [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] Haxby Road, York. Wands - light segregation. The speed limit is 30mph despite there being a school here (Joseph Rowntree Other images near the school: # and links. Other images today: … [more]

[Image taken 9.7.21] New Lane, Huntington, York. 30mph on one side, 40mph on the other. Despite the narrowness of the carriageways, the lack of sightlines - both directions. In the direction of the camera a short distance further on there … [more]

The "advisory redundant sign lane"

A short section of cycleway in Hinshaw Street feeds into the cycleway in Garscube Road.

Canniesburn Toll roundabout, where changes are proposed including signalisation. See

Nonsense bollards.

Canterbury Street meets Histon Road.

Clearly fed up locals

Long Road, Comberton

Approaching Sawston

Vehicle speed monitor in Babraham.

Panton Street has an experimental traffic order changing this section to one-way except cycles.

Just where cyclists need help, at one of Cambridge's worst roundabouts, the cycleway just ends.

Roadworks for the installation of the westbound cycle lane on Great Western Road.

Road from the top deck of the Huddersfield to Halifax bus.

Cycle lane and separate bus lane on London Road.

Langhaul Road approaching the Leverndale Road roundabout. Suddenly cycle marking start appearing on the footway, without any dropped kerbs to get there.

Cycle lanes approaching the Crookston Road junction.


A bus lane for right turns, forbidden to other traffic.

A shared-use footway along one side of Barrangary Road, connecting Dargavel to the A8.

A shared-use footway along one side of Barrangary Road. Strictly speaking, there shouldn't be 30mph signs here since the road has street lighting.

NCN72 signage.

Narborough Road

Narborough Road South

Cycleway alongside a trunk road.

Hand Avenue meets Braunstone Lane Cycle route sign points left to: Meridian Business Park Narborough

Hockley Farm Road passes under Leicester's ring road.

East Kilbride a quarter of a mile away? Only the very edge of town.

The Redwood Drive shared footway continues south, but it is not clear how far it extends.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

The cycle route from Blantyre crosses Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the signs. Also, if the markings barely fit on the pavement, the shared footway is probably too narrow.

The start of a very narrow shared-use footway on Stoneymeadow Road. The dropped kerb is just beyond the map sign.

A decrepit shared footway approaching the uncontrolled crossing across the High Common Road sliproad from Strathaven Road. Room for improvement.


Bletchley: home of the codebreakers

Approaching Lode on the main road.

Milestone pointing to Kirkburton or Sheffield. Repainted since my last visit a few months ago, see #100586.

Why is there a no cycling sign on the Q6?

The sign in #100506 facing the wrong way and a sign for the westbound platform at an unnamed railway station. The direction to the eastbound platform is different and the sign for it is visible in the distance.

The Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 turns along this path to Craigmarloch, but there's no dropped kerb at the entrance. The 'No Through Road' sign could do with an 'except cycles' plate.

"Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" but no dropped kerb to enable that. Pathetic!

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

One road exits to Paisley Road West, the one opposite only has pedestrian access. A missed opportunity to improve cycle permeability for local journeys. 20mph zones only on side streets in Glasgow.

Need for Street Cycle Parking.

Discreet signage for NCN route 1

Kirkby Lane, Peckleton

Hamilton Road on the approach to the Broomhouse cycle lanes.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No … [more]

The Ravenscraig cycleway at the northern crossing of Plantation Road, including provision for those going straight ahead and joining the carriageway.

The Ravenscraig cycleway crossing Plantation Road, with provision for anyone joining from the carriageway of Plantation Road. Note that cycleway markings haven't been reinstated after roadworks.

No real attempt to allow bike access to housing estate via path from main road, and quite narrow cycle lanes for a 40mph road.

Odd to spot these A4 size posters attached to lampposts along Hinton Way with Cambridgeshire Constabulary and South Cambridgeshire district council branding. Looks very amateurish. Why not proper 30mph roundels?

Lots of signs at this junction in Dullatur, of which the cycle route signs are the least conspicuous. This road is very much a through route for cycling. The junction of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's routes 1a and 5.

Sign advising HGVs not to overtake cyclists.

Saxmundham gateway feature - some plants in a couple of hand wash basins. There's a fading 30mph roundal.

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. Here is the crossing of the Oceanfield housing development entrance.

Millburn Road where the speed limit changes from 20mph to 30mph.

Road widened for the central island - rather defeating the whole point of these things which I think are presumably to regulate the speed.

The end of the 20mph speed limit on Western Esplanade, just short of the start of the cycle track.

Shared-use path (NOT segregated) entering Harston

The shared-use footway entering Dalkeith, with sign set back from the main part of the path so as not to obstruct cyclists

Entrance to Chapelhall

The 20mph sign is flashing but motorists are still driving fast enough to set off the electronic 30mph "Slow Down" sign!

The shared-use footway going into Larkhall. Almost all the passing motor vehicles were lighting up the speed sign, mostly in the 30-40mph range.
