It's a shock coming back from Denmark and the Netherlands to find the appalling state of the roads in Cambridge.

The protected cycle lane on Victoria Bridge and the narrow painted lane it replaced.

Bilsland Drive at the junction with Balmore Road, a short distance after the end of the pop-up cycle lane. Since the inside of the carriageway was occupied with queuing traffic, the cyclist seen in #151391 had no option but to queue with th ... [more]

Kelvin Way closed to motor traffic to allow more room for walking and cycling. Nothing to say that the road closure is exempting cycles, but people seem to have got the message regardless. Unusually, one of the parking bays extends into ... [more]

ASL Ancoats, Manchester

ASL across four lanes of traffic and a warning to “right turners” to give way to oncoming traffic. Taken from a seat on bus 233.

A bridge in Huddersfield.

A pedestrian crossing and roundabout at the top of Corporation Street.

Cycle facilities on Shalesmoor.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]

Cycle lanes approaching the Crookston Road junction.

A tiny notice explaining how Advance Stop Lines work to drivers. I can't imagine many notice this, or take the time to read it.

A learner driver being taught to stop short of the (worn out) Advance Stop Line and Box Junction, while another driver stops right in the Box Junction.

Crookston shops on Barrhead Road.

Another dual carriageway road (three lanes here) in Hereford, near the railway station.

Advance stop line and Oslo’s opera house in the background.

An unpleasant crossing point of Hereford's race track of a ring road. At least this is traffic signal controlled and there's some attempt at cycle markings.

Forge Crescent meets Barrangary Road. You just have to know that the cycling provision is on the footway to the left and right, and to get onto it at the toucan crossing just beyond the Advance Stop Line.

Great to see that the area of Mill Road by the bridge has at last reopened after the fire. Shops much easier to access now. https://t.co/oQD1veOKgw

Smithdown Road

Dublin: view from the top deck of the bus from the ferry port into the city.

No right turn, with no exemption for cycling.

Bus priority signals, accessed via a left turn lane that gets a green before the straight ahead direction. But no cycling in the bus lane.

Milton Keynes NCN51 Faded red lane and markings

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The Advance Stop Line box has acquired a stop line across the cycle lane too.

Manchester Oxford Road

Southbound ASL and crossing to northbound bus and bike lane, Leeds.

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

The proposed cycleway for Jura Street will be on the left side, and end at a toucan crossing across Paisley Road West to Bellahouston Park. So this door-zone cycle lane will be removed.

Mill Road junction with Hemingford Road and Coleridge Road.

Looks a bit like an ASL (Advanced Stop Line) underneath the elevated railway in Chicago.

Direction sign for secure cycle parking in Cadogan Square partly obscured by whatever UB07 signifies. The size of the text also makes it hard to see, and the sign at the next junction is even less conspicuous.

Gwydir Street approach lane for advanced stop line

Now that Princes Street is only used by buses, trams and bikes the ASL seems less necessary.

Desire line onto pavement cycleway

Advanced green and advanced stop line help the diagonal desire line at this junction.

That Advance Stop Line is sure encouraging people to cycle!

The junction before the start of the protected cycle lanes on Hamilton Road.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

The route just ends at the traffic signals before the M74 off-ramp junction, with a Give Way into the Advance Stop Line. It's hard to see any logic as to when cycle facilities are provided here. Westbound it is to cross the off-ramp, with n ... [more]

Just when the road gets to a narrow bit on a slight climb, the cycle lane stops briefly.

Advanced green light for cyclists At Hills Road / Gonville Place junction in Cambridge

A new pinch-point in Oswald St to look out for cycling, which is also successful in trapping buses in the bus stop. And useless Advance Stop Line.

Advanced Stop Line, Kingston

Phase one of Access to Headington complete. Narrow on road lane replaced with shared footway. https://t.co/6BqtOy7yfp

Midland St now has a contraflow bus lane from Jamaica St, before becoming two-way by the mid-point.

The outside bus lane has been curtailed (along with the advance stop line) to allow more room for buses turning from Oswald St into Argyle St.

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

Cambridge kerb style raised cycleway on Arbury road.

Hanbury Street

INCREDIBLE NEW CYCLING INFRA HITS BELFAST No, it's the same useless shit that @deptinfra will pat itself on back for https://t.co/uoZ5nFxPJQ

The end of the inexplicable and abandoned cycleway on Saracen Street (see also #83824). Are cyclists expected to bump the kerb and use the ASL feeder?

See clip at https://youtu.be/HE_pxj8pM1U. Probably ought to go out to control (or primary) position in ASL box to stop this kind of nonsense. However, it's possibly best to have driver behaviour of this poor (and illegal) quality ahead n ... [more]

Advanced stop line with central approach lane enabling cyclists to adopt a good road position to turn right, and to avoid the laft hooking problem with kerb line approaches. Sadly, soon after the photo was taken, this facility was remove ... [more]

Junction in Farringdon with mini-lights for cyclists.

Mini-traffic lights and a countdown for pedestrians crossing in Camden.

A facility has been provided to allow cyclists to head straight up Water Street for a bit, to avoid the gyratory at Chapel Street.

Cycles allowed to make right turn outside Oxford Road station into Whitworth Street West (and thus access Oxford Street), when other vehicles restricted to left turn only.

This narrow corner is going to be rebuilt as part of Glasgow City Council's cycle route along the south bank of the River Clyde. Update at #83027.

Nothing but Advance Stop Lines on Cathcart Road.

So has the cycle route suddenly gone back onto the road? Without warning (or space) a cycle lane appears in the road, carefully painting around a pothole, and does the straight ahead arrow mean the route is going straight on at the junction ... [more]

The cycle route joins the A724, at a signalised roundabout. An Advance Stop Line has been provided, nothing else. From the signs further along the road, it appears cyclists are meant to join the footway at the far side of this junction ( ... [more]

Advisory cycle lane in Rostock. Location: Stadtteil Stadtmitte, Rostock (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany)

ASL and narrow feeder lane

No way to get to the ASL safely.

On my first pass of this junction I saw the "RR" cycle route sign on the right at the last minute and continued to head straight on up the road on the left. However, after seeing no further signs, I came back to this junction for another lo ... [more]

The junction of the "RR" cycle route with the A701 at Kaimes has nothing more than Advance Stop Lines.

A cycle parking hoop that's been twisted around so any bike parked on it would obstruct footway and adjacent cycleway. Plus taxi drivers ignoring advance stop lines again.

@SimonLamrock @veloevol @cycleoptic @TfL The lane and ASL on Praed Street outside Paddington is an all day taxi rank http://t.co/suKRDqAoPW

Maryhill Rd @ QMD where they have lovely ASZs for the use of private hire taxis. #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447924039122944

Titanic Quarter's finest! A cycle lane barely the width of the double yellows underneath. At least it's mandatory! http://t.co/LwGOSSIJww

See clip at http://youtu.be/JuxlyIvnfkg Highway Code Rule 178 (backed up by the RTA). Advanced stop lines. Some signal-controlled junctions have advanced stop lines to allow cycles to be positioned ahead of other traffic. Motorists, inc ... [more]
