[Image taken 25.7.21] Alder Way, New Earswick, York. This is the 'accessible' entry to/exit from Bootham Stray. This is a short, rural, quiet, flat, well surfaced greenway. It is a critical link between New Earswick (Haxby/Huntington) and Y ... [more]

Gates across path off Forrestburn Rd (with desire line next to them).

Overlapping barriers making it difficult to cycle into the park from the now shared-use footway.

The path between Balmore Road and Aultbea Street is poor enough without this narrow barrier. The surface of the direct path to Castlebay Street, off to the right, is even poorer.

More barriers at the foot of the ramp of the motorway footbridge, making 12 half-width panels to navigate around in total.

More barriers on the motorway footbridge.

More barriers on the motorway footbridge. Offsetting the stairs from the main span would have protected them from anyone inadvertently falling down them, if that's what these barriers are for.

The footbridge between Cockels Loan and Arkleston Road over the M8 motorway. The ramps have multiple barriers to slalom around. A desire line is developing in the grass from the north east.

[See later image: #170488.] [Image taken 10.5.19] York rail station. The barriers make access to and the exit from the station (and through it) difficult, uncomfortable, stressful. People cannot more through in their natural (social or prot ... [more]

[Image taken 19.6.21] York rail station. Pre-covid pandemic this was a polluted, chaotic and therefore hazardous area for people on foot, on cycles and in wheelchairs. There were more active travellers than drivers or passengers. Yet it fel ... [more]

The final section from the riverside path up to Inchinnan Road is quite steep, with a barrier at the top. See also #170232.

Narrow barriers to negotiate at the end of the riverside path in Renfrew.

Barriers and signs at the start of the riverside path in Renfrew. It only reaches the riverside after the scrap yard.

A barrier with an asphalted path through the gap leaving the road into Pollok Park. This route leads to some quieter options for routes through the park. The notice is about reporting crimes against wildlife.

Having established that the path through the woods wasn't particularly useful for cycling, I continued along the path until I came to this barrier. Although the path continues ahead, there is no break in the barrier down the middle of the s ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. These measurements (width 104cm, radius 155cm, entry/exit width 82cm) are not enough for someone to get through comfortably or easily on a cycle. Even on a lightweight, unladen, unadorned de ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. The width of the tarmac is just 97cm. This is uncomfortably narrow for many potential users pass through, and the angle is too tight - there's no provision for turning circles. (LTN 1/20 Cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. Looking from Manor Lane. The ‘holding’ area between the road and the entry to the chicane is too narrow. You would need to wait on the road if someone else were navigating this or, if wi ... [more]

Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. Looking towards Manor Lane. The angles here are too tight, the space between the chicanes too limited and the 'runout'/'turning circle' space limits who can use this offroad, segregated ped-c ... [more]

It must be a cycle path if it has a barrier across it. Ah, but it leads to a pedestrian crossing, not a toucan crossing, and the path on the other side does not align with the crossing. I noticed while waiting that a number of vehicles w ... [more]

Cycle barrier and horse stile

Cycle barrier on Leeds Country Way bridleway off Tyersal Lane near Smalewell Road with horse stile

The access from Kinnell Avenue to the next part of the Paisley to Glasgow Cycle Route basically doesn't exist.

Dalek shaped barrier in bridleway preventing easy right of way for cyclists. Can lift bikes over horse steps if able to do so.

A brand new path with a brand new barrier obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps, and to the right continues around the edge of this part of the park to link with the main path through the woods, b ... [more]

A brand new path with a brand new barrier obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The new path leads into the muddy puddle on Dalsholm Road that still hasn't been sorted.

The path has clearly been built to align with Bell's Bridge, but this alignment is nothing without a proper crossing. Instead, there's a staggered toucan crossing off to the right, as indicated by the sign. See also #93791 taken from the ot ... [more]

The barriers on Hanover Street have been moved making it more difficult to cross George Square. The gaps between sections of barriers do not line up. Previous layout shown in #143986.

Modal filter

Full-width barrier, no dropped kerbs - Cambridge University's Civil Engineering department really doesn't want cyclists to arrive from the north.

These barriers don't permit cycle trailers

The signed path between Hawick Street and Kelso Street is obviously not fit for purpose, but nothing has been done to this path since it was initially installed. No change since #36031.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

Narrow, overgrown, muddy path with bad signposting and a barrier that would restrict non-standard cycles. Path is only a hundred metres or so but this isn’t clear on entry and forward visibility is very poor.

Monks Cross retail park 1.12.20. The crash barrier in the background was end on when I approached and had fallen. It was hard to see. I moved it to be upright and hopefully a bit more visible to people cycling on this dedicated route. I cou ... [more]

The barriers for the pop-up closure in Hanover Street are possible to cycle around on a standard bicycle, but awkward. New cycle parking has been installed too. It would make a lot of sense for this to become a permanent road closure, wi ... [more]

I'm not sure some people understand what the red and white barrier indicates. George Square east shut to all vehicular traffic, including cycles, and possibly also applies to SUVs too. The car was driven out over the fancy stone footway ... [more]

Pedestrians aren't meant to use the north side of the gyratory at the Hydro, and it isn't much more suitable for cycling either. There used to be a direct underpass link towards the SECC here, but it was filled in when the gyratory was b ... [more]

Next level anti cycling infra on a path near patchway, south glos. Maybe they had a anti social behaviour issue with youths riding tanks?? https://t.co/K5XzFqNo4Y

Barrier on NCN6 at Chiswell Green preventing access by disabled riders or families with trailers. Tandem doesn't fit and had to be lifted.

Bollards at Panshanger Lane entrance to Panshanger Park, a barrier to disabled and family cycling

Barrier on the Lines Way.

Barrier on the Lines Way.

"Welcome to Leeds" on NCN67 railway path approaching Methley Junction.

The new "anti-terror" barriers on Kings Parade. I can't help thinking that they were really motivated by a rather cynical desire to make life more awkward for people cycling through the town. The gap is far too narrow for two way cyclin ... [more]

Lots of barriers on the southern side of the Queensway footbridge at Sudbury Crescent.

Is this the correct sign for a narrowing with barriers?

A connection from Bantaskin Street to Cowal Road, although there is no formal crossing across the latter, and not even a dropped kerb there. Should the awkward bit of the Kelvin Walkway (at #100566) ever be rebuilt, this will be the diversi ... [more]

A tree surrounded by a concrete plinth in Bantaskin Street. The path to the Kelvin Walkway now has a barrier saying 'No Entry' at its entrance.

With the housing development now happening off of Bantaskin Street, it might be time to remove at least one of these barriers.

The path north to Pinkston Drive has been closed and dug up.

This must be a cycle path! Access to ASDA supermarket and retail park from the shared footway at Saughs Road.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

An A-frame barrier on the canal path across from Thorne.

Random cycle parking at Meadowhall station car park, and a narrow A-frame barrier obstructing the path that leads between the car park and an office block over to a hotel.

A traffic boom across NCN6, with a little gap at the side. Would rising bollards (or even a cheaper padlocked drop bollard) not be more appropriate, leaving more space for those on foot and bike?

A route sign on the Cardonald Quietway, and barriers on the bridge over the White Cart.

The lack of cycle facilities on the A726 could be addressed by a modest upgrade of the existing footway to shared-use standards. Note that the dropped kerb crossing on the far side of the roundabout has been completed blocked for pedestr ... [more]

Chicane barrier on path from Strathcarron Drive to Hurlet Road, even though there is pedestrian guard railing across the end preventing access to the road.

Damage to pedestrian guard railing on Hurlet Road.

A pedestrian crossing across Hurlet Road, linking Ben Nevis Road to the path to Glenapp Avenue for pedestrians.

No easy way across Hurlet Road from Ben Nevis Road to the path to Strathcarron Drive.

Access between Elder Park and Drive Road hindered by a railing, yet signed (in tiny writing) for cycling.

Old barriers still blocking footbridge over White Cart, now part of the Cardonald Quietway.

The path between Rosshall Park and Cardonald Drive, on the original Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, is divided in two by a central railing for the section over the railway bridge, making it difficult to pass people coming the other way.

The path between Rosshall Park and Cardonald Drive on the original Glasgow-Paisley cycle route is not only narrow but is divided in two by a central railing, making it very difficult to pass anyone coming the other way. The sign has also co ... [more]

In addition to the obstructive railing and poorly positioned dropped kerb, the poorly placed signage has completely faded out.

For fucks sake, @CityofYork, we're a tourist city; you're meant to welcome people, not terrify them! St Helen's Square has always been a place of people gathering, this is just awful. https://t.co/oB5gSSYBlN

Barrier to any tricycle or tandem on route to Oxenholme station

Can't be good to feel like a mug for following official cycle route signs. This is part of the Wirral Circular trail in West Kirby. For me it's irritating, those with mobility issues or nonstandard cycles are simply excluded. We can do bett ... [more]

A gate and A-frame barrier blocking the way to the National Cycle Network at the far end of Sandal & Agbrigg station car park.

Absurd barriers on the footway half of the path!

Multiple barriers / bollards at bottom of Gertrude Road

An awkward barrier at the foot of the ramp up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and no dropped kerb. The only way to the Clydebank Business Park that could possibly be just a quarter of a mile is to head in the opposite direction from ... [more]

Signs visible through the trees for various destinations not mentioned at the top of the ramp. Anyone getting this far probably already knows where they are going. Plus an awkward barrier to get around at the bottom of the steep and narrow ... [more]

The barrier requires bikes to be lifted over since, even with the pedal at its highest point, the smallest of the metalwork pieces is still higher than the pedal.

Barriers too close and no drop kerb. Worn grass shows desire line. A bit of a shame but ramp is still useful to link Rigby Street to Rigby Crescent and avoid traffic on Shettleston Road.

Same as it ever was https://t.co/IgLR8AuVQL

Some ancient infra that looks like it's close to collapse in parts. Needs removal as it's no longer compatible with current cycle sizes (cargo bikes can't pass each other here).

This route is used by hundreds of people every day. The estate to the left has maybe a dozen houses. Why is the priority the wrong way round?

Very narrow access. Blocks most cargo bikes on a main school access route (that's the school ahead on the right with a gate access about 100m ahead on THIS PATH).

A severe barrier on the path between Duncryne Place, Bishopbriggs and Ashgill Road, Glasgow.

Slow for a sodding gate post? Surely priority signs like those on the adjacent road would be more appropriate.

A barrier over the HArTT cycle path at Carron Road, and a diagonal crossing over to the next section of path.

A barrier at the Cumbernauld Road bridge and crossing on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no asphalt for the bypass gap.

The swingbridge at Bonnybridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal.

An access ramp and a barrier (with a BMX style bypass) on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.
