A public bridleway to the Festival of Britain bridge #110367 over the River Aire.


Bollard at access to park.

The end of the shared-use footway on Kirkgate, but better to have gone to the left side of the road from the traffic island back at #110327, rather than attempt to join the carriageway here.

A toucan crossing at the large A61 roundabout at Kirkgate, on the edge of Wakefield city centre. I'm not sure the mandatory turn sign on the bollard is the correct one to use in this situation.

A lack of thought over desire lines here. Looking from the passageway under the building seen in #110325 to a series of toucan crossings across a large roundabout at Kirkgate on the edge of Wakefield city centre. Although there is an 'en ... [more]

Park wherever you like in Britannia Street.

A cycle parking shelter at Sandal & Agbrigg station. One of the bollards protecting it has been demolished.

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility [See #9381 ... [more]

The soggy path meets the road network but there is a concrete edging strip sticking up. Uncomfortable to cycle over, and a tripping hazard for walkers.

Southbound NCN routes 7 and 10, with stickers on the bollard.

A bike locked to a bollard advertising Pedal Zone off Peel Park Place.

Gaffer tape used to repair bollard found discarded at #106943.

Bollard damaged and lying in a nearby bush. Reported at: Reference: 00311822 Update: a week later I notice it had been repaired with gaffer tape, see #107112. But also on ... [more]

Nothing says ‘Quietway’ quite like some destroyed child-sized bollards! @willnorman

Another loss of priority to a road used by very few vehicles. The cycle lane should continue straight across here, and cars be forced to give way.

Bourn Brook Walkway, Quinton - path Location: , Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom) A section of the Bourn Brook Walkway in Quinton from West Boulevard (after leaving Woodgate Valley Country Park) towards California Way. It i ... [more]

Someone must have decided this layout was a good idea!

The Wester Way ends at Westerhill Road and awaits the building of the next phase of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, and a new path alongside the railway to Lenzie. Corduroy tactiles have been provided (not cycleway tactiles) even though th ... [more]

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

Bollard prevents motor vehicles abusing the bus and cycle lane.

Pole hazard on Cyclepath

Compared to the shared footway on other side of the road, the end of the purpose built cycleway looks over-engineered. It could also do with a sweep.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

An update on #99502, double white lines have been added. Note the two on bikes on the footway across the other side of the road.

This just doesn't look good at all.

Broken bollards and broken speed cushions on Netherton Road.

NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path at Dock Street crossing.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path (seen in #48603), but the site still needs a general tidying up.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. This was the last sign of work I saw heading down Dyke Road. Perhaps the footway will get widened. Update at #100297 and #101274.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I imagine this isn't finished.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

Richmond Park closed, why not visit Glasgow Green? Well, the Polmadie Bridge is down for starters.

Some sort of bollard monument at the Richmond Gate housing development. Coming to the end of NCN73 in Kilmarnock.

Warren Road / Eastfield link.

Warren Road / Eastfield link has been freshly rebuilt, wider & with reasonable access control in the form of a single central bollard.

Well-placed bollard at the end of the new connection to Red Cross Lane. Strange & unnecessary but harmless give way markings, I suppose.

There are two sets of bollards like this on the cycle path leading to Newmarket Road Tesco

There are two sets of five bollards like this, one after the other.

One of a series of bollards at Newmarket Road Tesco

Fern Lane is well surfaced (for a back lane) and has a single bollard to prevent through motor traffic, making it a useful alternative to the busy Crow Road..

Upgraded bridge across the Auldhouse Burn.

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75

Rising bollard in Nice

The start of the path from Holytown to Eurocentral, at the sports centre car park. I don't know what the bollard is supposed to achieve.

The path from Ballantrae Road over towards Blantyre.

New bollards on NCN51 just before it goes under the A14, near Quy

The elevated cycleway approaching the Millenium Bridge in Lancaster.

A nice new replacement bridge over the River Colne, but the signs obscure visibility of each other. Also on a round pole, rather than the square poles used elsewhere locally.

A nice replacement bridge over the River Colne, but a pity about the tactiles being the wrong type. The sign reads "Please give way to pedestrians on bridge".

An arrow sticker has been added since #21167

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

Humped road crossing for path on way to new park, but demolished bollard and footway parking in housing development that has been designed for car commuters.

The Shore Street access to the Clyde Walkway.

Ramp up to main road before going back down to an underpass (see #87502).

Bollard on narrow stretch of City Road where it joins Prospect Row by the Free Press (pub on left). Bollard and kerbs make this an awkward corner.

Bollard on narrow stretch of City Road near Free Press. Is this really needed and could it be positioned better?

Three different bollards at the eastern end of the Carter Bridge. From the left: an old wooden one, a relatively recent white painted concrete one and an old metal one.

Three old wooden bollards on Gresham Road. The red bands are wearing away and at night these are almost invisible.

Left or right at the monument? Seems it is right, but could have been made more obvious and smooth.

Bridge over Limehouse Cut into park

Asphalted path parallel to the railway - a little work at the far end would open this up to cycling.

Cut-through in the City of London

Going fishing! Much improved bollard arrangement where Carter Bridge ramp joins Devonshire Road. Personally I would have liked to see a centerline marked for 5m up the ramp to help warn of the bollard, but this arrangement is as clear ... [more]

Bollard right in the middle of a narrow cycle path.

01_2016_063 Cycle route alongside the A27, near Chichester, January 2016 [Between Shoreham and Lancing]

Bollards with reflective inserts, made by Glasdon. They looked like wood but I think may have been recycled plastic. On cut-through from Cherry Hinton Road to Bullen Close.

Route 1 sign in Carbrain. The steps up ahead have a ramp around the side.

Bollards that will take a chunk out of your leg.

Bike pump by London cycle route 3 at Waterloo East

A wall separating the rear of properties from Nuffield Road. There's a rusty bollard with pram arms half way along it.

Watch out for the bollard! Someone clearly missed it, making it even more stealthy. Photo taken Feb 2016.

Quite A Lot To Absorb

Path with barriers opposite Wills Way
