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 see ... [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 R ... [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 a ... [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 p ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Cyclist turning into it round the blind corner from Wigginton Road. Motorcyclist in the ASL. See other views of this bollard from today: #167954 and links

[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 t ... [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! Cong ... [more]

Update: far worse encroachment at this ASL see: #168510 and link. [Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Encroachment into the ASL is common. This example is a minor infringement. It shows the blind corner t ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. A removable bollard has appeared. Compare with this image: #89379 from 2017. And the more recent streetview from August 2019: https://goo.gl/maps/r5k2Tukg7PX9ZLQu6: See ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. Un 'upstand' (see: #167919) is never good. At 1cm, this one is comparatively small. Another issue here is the bollard. It is 78cm from the nearest upright (you need more space than ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This bollard obstructs access to/from the cycle racks. Is it intended to serve a useful purpose? Or is it simply clutter? See also: #167924. For other images of these racks taken to ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This cycle extends beyond the cycle rack by around 52cm. Some cycles will require much more space. Just as cycles need space in front see: #167920. So you need unobstructed space be ... [more]

Traffic island and bollard to help prevent left hooks on the Clyde Street pop-up cycle lane.

Van parking obstructing the dropped kerb for the path connecting Plean Street to the NCN7 cycle path. The bollard is largely superfluous, given the width of the opening.

An important bollard has been removed here https://twitter.com/iambrianjones/status/1373957267461173249?s=21

The signed diversion route is shut! Still no dropped kerb.

A section of the Springburn Road residential access road is one-way, and the path down to the expressway is of limited use for cycling since it leads only to a pedestrian crossing, with no footway continuing on this side.

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

Great Shelford Broken bollard was reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00358336 Update 2021 Feb 01: Received notification that the bollard will be fixed within the next three months.

90cm gap between bollards on the Trumpington 'strategic cycleway'

Reinstated bollard at Jubilee path. Gaps to the wooden fences on either side are about 1.8m and 2.0m. Remaining hard surface width is about 1.04m to the edge on one side, and 1.0m to the encroaching greenery and debris on the other side.

I was surprised to see this Scottish Canals branded route sign after the turn for Shakespeare Street, but it turns out it is part of a signed diversion due to the Stockingfield canal path closure, so it should be yellow. The diversion appro ... [more]

I think this is a "park in marked bays only" Controlled Parking Zone. Either way, the van is parked obstructing the cycle cut-through to Hyndland Street and the bollard isn't helping.

A very useful triangle of tarmac makes this route a little bit more pleasant.

The cycle route crosses Govan Road from Burleigh Street to Pearce Street.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

Nice and simple access from the canal to the new cycleway.

Resurfaced path on useful link between Chaucer and Latham roads.

1. Is there enough room either side? Doesn't look like it. 2. This style of bollard looks too urban for this area. 3. Isn't there a better way to indicate that this path is shared use?

The Mossneuk cycle route continues along Pitcairn Crescent to the left, but takes a detour to join the footway of Mossneuk Road first.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path crosses a farm access.

A cycle track extends from the end of Gallowhill Road alongside the B759 as far as an entrance to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking.

Horrendous punitive bollard on a cycle route, Headingley, Leeds.

No dropped kerb at the end of the Kelvin Walkway access path at Lochgilp Street, although there is one slightly further on at the steps.

In case you accidentally walk out into the road...

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path, but the retention of the painted car parking bay across it causes it to frequently be blocked by car parking.

An attempt to tidy the area up but flytipping hasn't been eradicated.

Hasty Lane: A solitary bollard (thank God it isn't a chicane) protects this overgrown and slippery ramp down to the tunnel beneath the motorway.

A narrow island forming part of a staggered toucan crossing. This isn't going to work well if more than one person tries to use it at the same time in opposite directions.

A toucan crossing across Wicker, and a point to leave the carriageway to either use the crossing or join the path to the riverside. I'm uncertain what the role of the bollard is.

...at the last second you may notice the new, dangerously-placed bollard behind the first one. (see https://www.cyclestreets.net/location/112471/)

Coming down the Jane Coston Bridge on the south side you see one bollard.... (continues here: https://www.cyclestreets.net/location/112472/)

Cyclist navigating past new bollard. Due to awkward arrangement of bollards (the sharp curve) most everyone winds up on the right-side of the bollard instead of the left, creating further conflict with people heading north.

County (re)installed a new bollard in a dangerous location (around a blind corner) where its predecessor was removed a while ago.

A point to leave the A61 Shalesmoor dual carriageway and turn right using the toucan crossing, or turn left to access Bowling Green Street (at #112466).

A simple and unobstructed crossing at Morton Avenue.

Routes NCN7 and NCN75 have been restored to the direct route at Hawkhead Hospital after a diversion lasting several years.

Path connecting Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

Just as I was about to leave Victoria Park, I noticed this bollard emblazoned "Park Cycle Route End".

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

Shared use foot / cycleway, alongside The Straight Mile, Hereford.

Shared use foot / cycleway, alongside The Straight Mile, Hereford.

Much improved route from the end of Leys Avenue into the Arbury Court area.

Improved shared use path compared to 16 years previously: #4117.

This was already a very tight and awkward gap to negotiate. Knuckle crusher rails were installed last year to punish anybody who didn't get their alignment quite right. This bollard has now been added to make it even more difficult and make ... [more]

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 https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [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.
