Still no reinstatement of bollards to stop drivers from using this pedestrian and cycle route as an access route to and from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bollards were removed for the COP26 dinner.

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The otherwise excellent cycle parking provision needs labelling as cycle parking to dissuade people from returning trolleys here. Other images here today and links: #182710.

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. When I first saw the roof I was concerned about the headheight. But the person standing next to his cycle is 6ft. He said he thought it was fine. Other images here today and links: #1 ... [more]

The Puffin crossing shows no signs of being converted to Toucan, or any other way of providing access to the still unfinished cycle route across the junction.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only. This road closure was temporarily removed during the COP26 conference (due to road closures elsewhere) but has been reinstated without including cycle access.

Milton Keynes redway system, Bradwell.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only, with barriers and a lack of a conveniently sited dropped kerb on the other side impeding cycling. Not a major desire line, but I came this way due to roadworks on the main road.

Barrier at end of path at Arrochar Street.

A recommended route for cycling in Dornal Avenue.

The closure at the eastern end of Overnewton Street does not provide for through cycling, the cycle parking stands are past their best, and the driver on Haugh Road has no respect for the road markings.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to have ceased.

No progress to report on work at the North Woodside Road/Maryhill Road crossing.

[Image taken 8.10.21] Cygnet Street, York. The gaps need to be 150cm to meet current standards. The arrangement on the left is an example of the (shameful) York barriers. One council officer refers to these as “ankle breakers”. They are ... [more]

[Image taken 6.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. The gap on the right nearly meets the minimum standard of 150cm. The others don't. This is a critical piece of the permeable infra around York. In September 2021, I did an on ... [more]

[UPDATE: Measurements between the bollards: #174633.] [Image taken 5.10.21] Navigation Road, York. Compare this image with this one: #174579. The difference is the number of bollards has been reduced. It was too wet for measuring and chalk ... [more]

An improvement on #89968 at the end of Anderson Street. A dropped kerb has also been provided to access the road directly. There is a toucan crossing just off to the right as well.

A triangle of new paving has been placed to the side of the large barrier at Buchanan Wharf, because people were walking across the flower bed to get past the barrier. This is also the cycle diversion for NCN756 until the cycle track at #16 ... [more]

Car parking on the "Keep Clear" markings and across what the traffic order said was legal to cycle through (although it has never been properly signed) on the traffic filter.

This housing development appears to have been built with cycling access, but it’s usually gated off when I go by. Signs claim that it’s private.

Silly arrangement of 2 bollards, 3 gaps, on link to Fen Road

Improved access to Fen Road from the towpath in Chesterton. But as others have pointed out (see #173887) the bollard arrangement is problematic. The gaps at the side are too narrow to use safely hence everyone has to go through the middl ... [more]

The canal path access next to the Centre81 community centre is now opened. There are steps and a hair-pin bend ramp. The community centre also has some cycle parking.

Surrey Street has had a cycle connection to Pollokshaws Road ever since this end of the street was closed to motor traffic as part of the Route Action Plan programme, but it is not clear how one is to join the South City Way cycle tracks.

The eastern end of the Herbertson Street cycle track suffers from a severe fly parking problem, with cars and vans parked on the footway as well as over the dropped kerb for exiting the cycle track.
