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]

Hale Trafford - Obstructing barriers 2 sets . At both ends of the path.

Hale Trafford - Obstructing barriers. At both ends of the path.

Barriers combined with steep slopes into road on shared path route through to primary school/playing fields/Brownies/Scouts. Dangerous for children and impassable for larger bikes and mobility vehicles. Replace with a raised table crossing ... [more]

Trafford Brooks Drive public right of way has been blocked off by very high (looks professionally installed) fencing. Blocks what would otherwise be an ideal quiet route linking Hale Barns. https://safestreetstrafford.commonplace.is/commen ... [more]

Timperley Trafford . Obstruction impedes access for disabled, triple prams etc. and cyclists.

Sale nr Manchester route from Priory Gardens a Kissing Gate. There is a locked gate here preventing access Simple solution is to toremove the gate to allow free flow of active travel. This would be a fantastic route to avoid A56 from Sale ... [more]

Sale nr Manchester Priory Gardens . There is a locked gate here preventing accessSimple solution is to lock one of the large access gates in a semi open position to allow free flow of active travel. This would be a fantastic route to avoid ... [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

Bollards blocking access to disabled and family cycling at Birch Green entrance to Panshanger Park

A barrier at Leeds Road, on the Lines Way connection to St Aidan's nature reserve and NCN67.

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.

Anti motorcycling barriers on this narrow cycleway above the Great Central railway.

Fussy anti-motorcycling barriers that seem to annoy almost everyone.

Chicane barriers are easily bypassed

Proposed barrier near Ruddington Lane tram stop

Proposed barrier near Compton Acres tram stop

Proposed location of staggered barriers

The way from the entrance to the cycle parking is blocked by a barrier, and the very narrow gap at the side is blocked by cones.

The only barriers I encountered on the Whitehills cycle route, and no signage to say whether the route goes straight ahead to the Queensway underpass or turns right along Strathcona Place towards the Murray Roundabout.

Barriers across the path at Curlew Drive, the Crosshouse Primary School access road.

Barriers across the path at Mallard Crescent, and no dropped kerb.

Barriers at Burnside View raised crossing. Hardly a busy main road!

Barriers at the junction of two paths.

The continuity of Netherton Road (now a path) has been destroyed by the junction at Applegate Drive. Not even a dropped kerb at the end of the path (which has been slewed away from its original alignment).

Barriers on the paths either side of Newlandsmuir Road. Quite why East Kilbride's cycle route 1 doesn't go straight across and along the path ahead right through to Lonsdale Gait (avoiding the Greenhills Road roundabout) I don't know.

The barrier at The Saltings car park.

Another barrier blocking the end of a bridge in The Saltings nature reserve. So I'll give this path a miss too.

A barrier on a footbridge at The Saltings nature reserve. But easily avoided by taking a different route.

A barrier across the path between Donald's Quay and The Saltings. It's always worth checking whether the gate is locked or not. At this point, the path is running along the formation of a former railway line.

A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

I'm sure a better entrance to this path could be built at Knightscliffe Avenue. The plot to the left was only recently rebuilt.

A barrier at the entrance to The Saltings local nature reserve from the car park. There is another barrier further along the path, between The Saltings and Donald's Quay.

A rather uninviting entrance to the Thomas Wood Path at Duntocher.

Horrendous A-frame barrier that stops anyone with a tricycle, recumbent, or any form of adapted cycle for people with disabilities. Even more horribly, this is right next to the Woolgrove school, for special needs, thus ensuring that the ... [more]

I'm not normally one for ragging on my colleagues but this shiny new car park at Gloucester station is an active travel crime scene. True @bollocksinfra https://t.co/c1octJbVNO

Barriers at Lionthorn Road crossing.

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

The road towards Callendar Woods at New Hallglen Road.

An entrance to the Callendar Woods from Kemper Avenue, with a gap to the side of a locked gate.

A toucan crossing across A905 Beancross Road, a signed walking route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre, and barriers across a path to Chisholm Place/Almond Street. Primrose Avenue (to the left behind the camera) is a key link between Grange ... [more]

Cycle barrier. Rounded shape enables a normal bike to be wheeled through, but it would be difficult with a tandem or trailer.

NCN76 joins the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, but has several barriers across it.

The exit from Rannoch Park, a path from Rannoch Road, and their connection to the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road.

A barrier on the track up to the Union Canal.

Another barrier in Summerford Park.

I'm not sure who is welcome to Summerford Park. I had to turn my handlebars sideways and lift the front wheel to get through this.
