I have no idea how someone managed to drive into that route sign, but it needs straightening.

Cycleway closed for utility works - coming in to Cambridge it's easy to see a route through the bus stop lay-by, but heading out people just go across the muddy grass.

They're breeding! More bollards and fencing at this collapsing bridge. See #162112
