Car parking at the Kelvin Way junction still an on-going problem.

Poor visibility approaching Park and Ride site from Jubilee Square. The cycle route crosses the exit and entrance roads off the main roundabout.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway appears to be nearing completion at long last. But still not clear how it integrates with anything else.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway appears to be nearing completion at long last.

The burst water main in #189435 has been repaired and the road patched, but the pothole has been left untouched!

A pothole full of water, and water rising through the footway surface. The sign says "Due to burst water main please do not park", but was ignored by one private plates driver. (The pipes belong to a team of window cleaners.)

The bollard round the bend.

The bollard in the left gap is back. (Apologies for the poor quality photo.) Compare with photo a couple of days previously: #189003.

Still no dropped kerb at the Panmure Gate entrance to the award-winning Claypits Local Nature Reserve.

[Image taken 26.11.22] The Village, Haxby. Generous space for larger/wider cycles and/or a family or group of friends sharing a lock. Other images here today: #188087.

[Image taken 26.11.22] The Village, Haxby. Sheffields where people can use them and find them. Clearly labelled - what they are, who they are for. Protected from motor vehicles by the bollard. Overview and links: #188087.

No improvement on last year then. Leaf mess all over the path, and the tactile paving is still wrong.

A van parked over the dropped kerb that allows cycle access to Balvicar Street and Queen's Park.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

[Image taken 17.7.22] Asda, Jockey Lane, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. Entrance to the Asda site from Jockey Lane and a path across the car park to and from the retail outlet for, well, who? Pedestrians and wheelchair users only? Or all … [more]

The 20mph outside the school ends and reverts to 30mph half way along the school building.

Anyone not turning left must leave the protected cycle lane and use the anonymous advance stop line.

Flooded - due to blocked drain on the cycleway at this bus stop bypass.

Hounsfield Road, Sheffield

Recent bollards installed for Cambridgeshire County Council don't have those nasty protruding handles

A parallel cycle zebra crossing across Strathfillan Road, on the West Mains Road cycleway, that does not involve deviation from the alignment of the cycleway (as happens at some other junctions). The proper cycleway ends just after where … [more]

A typical view of the two-way section of the West Mains Road cycleway. There is a parallel cycle zebra crossing at the side road junction ahead.

The West Mains Road cycleway at the Torrance Road junction. It looks like a cyclops junction is under construction, but traffic signals have yet to be installed. However, there is no provision for cycle left turns, and a bollard with an … [more]

The West Mains Road cycleway at a parallel cycle zebra crossing, but 'ahead only' signs ban its use for cycles from this direction. Maybe it is only to be used for crossing from the other side of the road.

The West Mains Road cycleway at the Kirktonholme Road junction. The crossing is out of alignment from the main cycleway, and 'ahead only' signs displayed on bollards ban cycle left turns into Kirktonholme Road. Why?

The West Mains Road cycleway approaching the Kirktonholme Road junction where the crossing is not in line with the main cycleway.

A parallel zebra crossing, and start of the West Mains Road cycleway. The bollard on the right is directing cyclists up a flight of steps!

The Cornwall Street cycle lane at the Fire Station. Incorrect corduroy tactile paving has been used instead of the cycleway type at the pedestrian crossing.

People walking and cycling on Kelvin Way, with motoring signage still on display two years after the closure to driving.

The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The finished replacement crossing on North Woodside Road at Maryhill Road. Note the Ahead Only sign on the traffic signal.

Bollard and painted lines, replacing the exclusionary barrier.

Short shared-use cycleway down a ramp to a business entrance and cycle parking.

The start of the Ferry Road cycleway, leading to the Old Dumbarton Road and Benalder Street cycleways. The sharrows point cyclists along the main carriageway and not onto the cycleway.

The end of the Ferry Road cycleway, with a Give Way back onto the carriageway. This road is a dead end for motorists, but leads to the National Cycle Network.

The finished state of the end of the Benalder Street cycleway does not involve traffic signals after all, and an upside down Give Way triangle is all that assists cyclists in rejoining the flow of traffic.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn … [more]

Greenleys, Milton Keynes

Image taken 11.1.22] King Street, York. Substandard onstreet cycle parking (toastrack, Sheffields). The bollard means one space cannot be used. It does not provide protection from other vehicles. Other issue with this rack see: #177528. … [more]

Bollards blamed by BBC https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-59641534

Bollard chicane at the junction of the Festival Way / NCN33 path with Backwell Bow. There are two smaller bollards behind the larger one (one is obscured in the photo), producing quite a tight space for access of approximately 90cm.

The Festival Way / NCN33 crossing of Station Road in Flax Bourton. The single bollard has a reasonable space of over 1m each side and does not present a problem in terms of accessibility. Care should be exercised when crossing here however … [more]

Barriers, bollard, and a salt bin obstructing the northern end of the bridge carrying NCN334 over the M5 and the Portbury Hundred. There are no obstructions on the southern side of the bridge in Portbury and the gradient is easier.

Not a care in the world about any inconvenience their parking may cause.

Slow for the incorrect tactile paving and portaloo.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is not finished, but it is open, and the COP26 diversion is now active.

Temporary signs obstructing the northern end of the Benalder Street cycleway. Still no progress to report on the installation of traffic signals implied by the stopline and pedestrian crossing studs, or how the cycleway ties into the road … [more]

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

The entrance to the cycle path at Greenlaw Road has been receiving some attention. However, the two plastic bollards that control access have gone missing.

Large gaps in protection on the eastbound cycle lane in Brockburn Road, and parking bays with pavement parking.

A new NCN7 cycle access point at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout. There is a pedestrian access over to the right, and whether this is the best point on the roundabout for a cycle access I'm not sure, since no-one will approach … [more]

A new cycle access point to the NCN7 path at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout, but nothing done to rectify the adjacent tree root damage.

Tree root damage left unattended to when work has been done to install a new access point at the roundabout.

Western end of new cycle lane Swavesey - Fenstanton

The ironwork at the Hill Street junction in Cambridge Street is rather uneven, and is directly in the cycle lane with little option to avoid if someone happens to be coming the other way. The bollard also looks rather beaten up.

That drainage isn't going to be much use! See also #173125.

The Wallacewell Road cycle lane at a bus stop where the bollard has been knocked over, and the drainage pipe is hanging in the air above the gutter. See also #173126.

A widened and protected cycle lane, compared to what was there previously, although still gaps in the protection at the pedestrian crossing.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road approaching the Broomfield Road junction. Note that the cycle traffic signals are green at the same time as traffic is exiting Broomfield Road. The cycle lights were green during both general … [more]

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

Start of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road.

Car parking still taking place in the Provanmill Road cycle lane, despite the armadillos. Double yellow lines have not been provided, making it difficult for the council's enforcement officers to do anything.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

Part of Kenmure Street has been converted to cycles only to reduce through traffic, but motorists have decided to use both the walking and cycling spaces for motor vehicle parking.

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business!

Imaginative redecoration of a bollard in Sedgwick Street, Cambridge.

I haven't noticed elsewhere this bollard treatment for cycle lane behind bus stop

Bollard on this narrow shortcut off Charlleville Road, Dublin

The Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. It is not clear what the priorities at the junction might be, but in practice traffic volumes are generally low.

The end of the Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. The nib on the far side of the junction has a dropped kerb at the far side, if continuing along Hinshaw Street. The tactile strip is some new adhesive type I'd not … [more]

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. The removable bollard viewed from a parallel road. The bollard is visible from further away but not, I argue, to people on cycles turning into Bridge Lane from Wigginton … [more]

The cycle lanes on Wallacewell Road are now equipped with armadillos right along the length of the road. The traffic islands appear to be marked up for adjustments to make the cycle lane wider past the islands.

The connection to Surrey Street from the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road is no longer marked (as it was previously, see #37220), but is implied with a dropped kerb available (although part of a pedestrian crossing) and ends … [more]

The pop-up cycle lane on Braidcraft Road ends just short of the roundabout at Corkerhill Road. NCN7 and NCN75 join from the left after the roundabout but no connection has been made.

A pop-up cycle lane has been provided on Braidcraft Road, although the sign says it is a bus lane.

A bus boarder under construction on the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane project.

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press … [more]

A new Nextbike station on Maryland Drive, Craigton, and a driver parked on double yellow lines across the entrance to the cycle track on Paisley Road West.

A new Nextbike hire station on Corkerhill Road, near the Nethercraigs sports centre, a broken bollard, a bus stop in the cycle lane, roadworks vehicles parked in the cycle lane (the roadworks themselves were on part of the footway), and a … [more]

The build-outs at the north end of the Corkerhill Road cycle lanes have now been rebuilt with dropped kerbs at each end, allowing access to and from the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane (an improvement over #93383). … [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Two users each wider than an unencumbered, unaccompanied pedestrian would be. See how close they keep to the wall on the right. But this won't protect them from people … [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Even this close to the new bollard (an obstruction, it seems to me) the corner is still blind for pedestrians in both directions and cyclists turning in. Conflict! … [more]
