Aldringham Lane 40mph

Fast heavy traffic on Belton Lane.

Stallingborough Industrial Park Cycleway / Footway ends

40mph on Sychnant Pass Road

The enforceable limit is 40mph, the advisable limit is 25mph.

Are these warning signs really consistent with a 40mph limit as can be seen in the distance. I suppose a highway engineer would say “…it’s designed as a 40mph road…” and stare through you defocussed.

[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 road leading away from Canniesburn Toll roundabout and onto Maryhill Road.

Roundabout, Nuneaton

Two cheers for @LeicsCountyHall for removing this pedestrian refuge on the A47 at the outskirts of LFE. Was a real sphincter-tightener as it marked change from NSL to 40. Complained years back, but basically told to man up! So, thanks, but … [more]

Approaching the A55 expressway crossing on the outskirts of Bangor.

Frosty cycle path. Field Lane, York

The Cathkin Braes cycle path ends at the entrance to the country park, but could extend further to connect with the junction of the road to Rogerton.

Hi @A14C2H, this is the (complete?unfinished?) NE corner of the Histon roundabout. It is way too narrow to allow safe 2-way cycle traffic (and esp for cargo/trailer bikes). Could you please look at this? @camcycle

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

Huntingdon Road - I didn't dare to venture beyond here - as I'd be funnelled through a huge motorway junction in a concrete trough.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet.

Near Welsh Border

Welsh Newton

The A8 carriageway shut at the Barrangary Roundabout for various works. The roadworks on the Bishopton side were passable with care for pedestrians and cyclists.

The shared-use footway from Dargavel approaching the Barrangary Roundabout. The A8 currently doesn't have any cycle infrastructure on it in either direction from here. Although the sign says 'road on right closed', the road to the left was … [more]

Once past the end of the 30mph zone on Burgh Road, a shared path starts up and runs alongside the road to the roundabout.

Shared use cycle route between Deganwy and the edge of Llandudno.

Intermittent painted cycle lanes on the 40mph A88 Bellsdyke Road, a signed diversion route for the M876 motorway.

Cross slip road.

Crossing Krefeld Way

The Stewartfield Way shared footway - no wider on this stretch than it was further east.

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.

A connection between the cycle route from Blantyre, NCN756, and Iona Avenue, via a toucan crossing across East Mains Road. Iona Avenue leads to Kelso Drive where there is a ramped footbridge across Kingsway. Also, if the markings barely fit … [more]

The shared footway continues along East Mains Road, to meet up with NCN756.

Very faded and dirty sign, confirming that ncn223 continues along this 40mph road

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Exit from A61 underpass onto Sheffield road

While the John Muir Way signs give correct direction information, the HArTT cycle route signs tell people to cycle over a continuous crash barrier and down a steep embankment. The signs haven't been twisted around - they are bolted together … [more]

The shared footway alongside the A9, with a warning for drivers of the crossing up ahead.

Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the … [more]

We’ve made this narrow country lane walking & cycling friendly! Great! How? We’ve put up signs explaining that it’s friendly. OK but … it’s still shared with cars and trucks. Why no footway or cycle path? LOL. We’ve made signs. But … [more]

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

Ayr Road at Whitecraigs.

One of the traffic signals has been demolished so now people have to cross the busy A760 unaided.

The cycle route alongside Robberhall Road.

Crossing of Robberhall Road, which is signed for Edinburgh, so rather more than just a local road. This side is signed here as shared-use, the opposite side is the start of the line-segregated path through the Ravenscraig site to Carfin.

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

Another view of the road crossing in #88496 on route to the railway station, with NCN1 signage for route via Colchester town centre via a crossing across Cowdray Avenue.

A minor sideroad crossing on the Cowdray Avenue cycle track. I don't think the Dutch would do it like this!

A wide 40mph A-road but no room for a dedicated cycleway on this side. Just a shared footway on the opposite side.

Narrow pavement cycleway

Country roads near Hanbury

Junction of NCN route 65 to the Humber Bridge

Poor signage - cyclists on NCN route 1 should dismount and use the pedestrian crossing

Spot the route sign for Cumbernauld cycle route 2. This section of route is on-road, unlike most of the Cumbernauld cycle network, and on a 40mph road at that!

Painted cycle lanes on Kildrum Road, seen from a footbridge. Behind the camera is a large roundabout and a 50mph zone (see #67682).

This minor road has a 40mph speed limit, with reminders painted on the roadway at intervals.

The roads outside of towns here have 40mph speed limits rather than the National Speed Limit.

A dual carriageway ahead, and the start of another section of painted cycle lane.

Shared-use footway with flakey markings at uncontrolled crossing of 40mph A9 link road through Beechwood Business Park.

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

A narrow staggered crossing with plastic bollards that provide absolutely no protection whatsoever from the 40mph traffic through here.

Lots of roadworks make Madingley Road an even more unpleasant experience than usual. Despite all the cones and fences the 40mph limit is retained.

Many cyclists out enjoying #NCN77. BUT the traffic mostly ignores the signs. Pity. @sustrans @PerthandKinross

Two riders, their bikes laden with shopping bags brave the busy 40mph Coldham's Lane, presumably on their way home. Comparing available routes: ¾ of a mile 4 minutes 16 seconds … [more]

Coldham's Lane - very busy 40mph road. The white van overtook me wide, giving me plenty of space, but some other cars overtook very close. I very rarely come down this road because it is at a tangent to where I live.

Narrow footway on Coldham's Lane - not officially open to cycling but used by some to access the supermarket. The 40 mph straight road makes this a hostile place for everyday cycling and walking is not much fun along here either.

Cycle route to Penwortham and Preston

The footway here becomes shared-use at the crossing point - but the cycle route sign on the lamppost could easily be misinterpreted as suggesting the footway is shared use here.

Approaching Great Grandsden

Change of speed limit on Lanark to Hyndford cycle route. The on-road cycle lanes continue to Hyndford village.

The NCN sign half-cut off at the bottom of the photo is the only sign for the road to the left.

Narrow cycle lane on Histon Road.
