[Image taken 12.7.21] Lendal Bridge, Station Road junction with Rougier Street, York. I have been reporting the (latest) cracking here since 27.12.2019. I have rechased this today as I saw that the wheels of every vehicle that went into it ... [more]

[Image taken 4.7.21] Lendal Bridge/Station Road at the Rougier Street end. The orange spot marks a kerbstone that was damaged: #168910. It was a hazard for people using the pavement and encroached into the ASL. I've re-re-re-reported the da ... [more]

[Image taken 25.6.21] Station Road/Lendal Bridge, York. A second 'professional' local driver obstructs the ASL (see also: #170661) in the minute I was there. He is trapping the cyclist. He is also ahead of another cyclist - see image: #1706 ... [more]

[Image taken 25.6.21] Station Road/Lendal Bridge, York. This is a local taxi driver obstructing the ASL. No excuse. Other images this ASL see: #170663, #170664. The damaged kerb stone to the right of the ASL was reported 14.5.21. Other imag ... [more]

No right turns from Broomloan Road onto Paisley Road West, principally to keep the car traffic moving faster.

Is this still the most appropriate layout for this junction, given the change of priorities and connectivity at the other nearby junctions in recent years?

A short cycle lane approaching traffic signals on St Andrew's Drive.

Pavement parking in Cogan Road, outside a huge free car park at the retail park. The Advance Stop Line is the only concession to cycling on this road.

[See newer image: #170854] [Image taken 22.5.21] Lendal Bridge/Station Road at the Rougier Street end. The orange spot means it's been found and marked for action. I'm concerned the damaged ASL (see: #168910) next to it will have to get sim ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Station Road (Lendal Bridge) junction with Rougier Street, York. The next stage in the damage process is when chunks of the cracked tarmac come out. But it's not just the resulting hole(s) but also the lumps that are h ... [more]

An advance green has been provided for cycling into the protected cycle route straight ahead on Cambridge Street.

The on-road option for cycling from Aikenhead Road onto Polmadie Road. A central cycle lane has been provided between the left-turn filter lane and the ahead lane for motor traffic.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Wigginton Road, York. This is a continuation of caption: #168510 (and links). The driver realised s/he had made a mistake. But it wasn't the fouling of the ASL and therefore the blocking of anyone on a cycle in Bridge L ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Wigginton Road, York. The ASLs here are not 'nice to have' but critical for people on cycles exiting Bridge Lane using the cycle light: #167954. This driver blocked the entire ASL for the turning to Haxby Road. I was in ... [more]

Update: far worse encroachment at this ASL see: #168510 and link. [Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Encroachment into the ASL is common. This example is a minor infringement. It shows the blind corner t ... [more]

Traffic island and bollard to help prevent left hooks on the Clyde Street pop-up cycle lane.

[Image taken 31.3.21] ASL on Micklegate, York, corner of George Hudson Street. For several years I've been asking for this ASL to be repainted. Contrast it with #166496. Could it not have been done at the same time? Drivers just don't see i ... [more]

[Image taken 30.3.21] Micklegate Bar, York. In February 2021, there was no access for people on cycles from Blossom Street or Queen Street. The Bar has reopened and the deep ASL has been repainted. (Bar closed see: #164583.) See also: #166 ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] No Entry roundel and Except Cycles sign in the direction of Rougier Street from Tanner's Moat, York. Perhaps the most critical element for the permeability of the cycle network in the city. Despite the clear signage it ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] Unassuming but oversubscribed cycle facility, York. The cycle cut-through crosses the pavement between Rougier Street (ahead) and Tanner's Moat (behind). It's narrow. The pavement is a very well-used pedestrian route. ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] Pedestrians in York approaching the cycle cut-through between Tanner's Moat and Rougier Street. If you are a cyclist on Rougier Street and you want to reach Lendal Bridge (Station Road-Museum Street) to the right in th ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View of the ASL on Station Ave/Station Road, York, direction of Rougier Street, from the right turn on Lendal gyratory. A cyclist cannot access the safety of the ASL unless s/he was ahead of the traffic coming round th ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View from the ASL on Station Ave/Station Road, York, direction of Rougier Street. The bus stops on the left-hand side are very well used. The carriageway is narrow. Drivers have been 'held up' at myriad sets of lights ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] ASL from Station Ave, York, on Station Road, direction of Rougier Street. Lendal Bridge (Station Road-Museum Street and the Minster) are immediately left. The pedestrians in front of Krunchy's Sandwich Bar are crossing ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] The Lendal Bridge end of the Lendal gyratory, York. A very cyclist-unfriendly environment. The entrance to-exit from the Tanner's Moat cycle cut-through is just visible close to the left of the York Pullman vehicle. Se ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View from Lendal Bridge (Station Road) towards the War Memorial on the Lendal gyratory, York. It's a noticeable incline. Particularly if you start from a stationary position at these lights. There are bus stops on the ... [more]

This ASL on Rougier Street, York, is critical for cyclists to be able to move around the road network, particularly for people approaching from Tanner's Moat. (See: #166218) However, it is frequently obstructed either completely or partly a ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] By blocking the ASL on Rougier Street, York, this motorcyclist is also preventing cyclists using the two-way cycle cut-through left in the image. The facility is a critical link between Tanner's Moat and Rougier Street ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] ASL on Rougier Street, York where it joins Lendal gyratory at Station Road. The two-way cycle cut-through between Rougier Street and Tanner's Moat is to the right. The cyclist has come from Tanner's Moat and is headin ... [more]

Line of damaged tarmac starting with the area immediately ahead of the ASL on Museum Street, York and continuing right across the junction in the direction of the Minster on Duncombe Place. Each is a hazard for someone cycling. It is also a ... [more]

[Image taken 9.3.21] Extensive potholing on Museum Street, York looking towards the Minster. Turning from St Leonard's Place INTO Museum Street is always fraught. There's an ASL but drivers often try to pass on the right to get onto Lendal ... [more]

Cycle stands and route sign, giving journey times

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]

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.

Oslo

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
