[Image taken 25.1.23] Outside St Luke's church, Burton Stone Lane, junction wiith Shipton Street, York. Centreline tarmac damage at a road narrowing. That infra requires people on cycles to move out into the carriageway. Cyclists ought to … [more]

Cycle cut-through added long after the road was closed - the gap between the two bollards on the left is still a bit tight.

That was quite some impact. Oddly, the cargo bike is carrying boxes of flowers and also loading up with e-scooters.

[Image taken 11.1.23] Clifton Moor Retail Park - the area with Dunelm at one end and Tenpin at the other, Stirling Road, York. The bollards are too close to the racks. 140cm is insufficient space even for a standard cycle. When reversing … [more]

Road to Tibidabo, modal filtered section limited to buses, bikes and walkers

@WRSalford Nothing new under the sun. https://t.co/eVab4k94eM

If you think LTNs are new in Salford, you'd be wrong This filter has happily been in place for a few decades, without much fanfare https://t.co/8y556j6qkA

@camcycle Loved my snowy commute this morning, though the bike was really difficult to manage on side roads. Riverside cycleway through Midsummer Common was gritted and somewhat ok to ride. https://t.co/y41CBg0lug

Pencil themed bollards in Bath Buildings, Montpelier, Bristol

[Image taken 1.12.22] Rail station, York. I wondered how long it would take for a cargo cycle to appear at this end of the station. Though there is no dedicated space or even suitable space as there is nowhere to secure a cycle to. The … [more]

A new street in Clydebank, Titan Boulevard, at last providing a high quality walking and cycling connection between Clydebank College and the town centre, lining up with Hume Street and Abbotsford Road to link to the canal towpath.

The planters have been replaced by more bollards - no doubt it was easier to give alternative routes than to fix the flooding.

Las Pilitas, o Plazuela del Pipila

It's great that the path from Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been widened and resurfaced, but those bollards are just in the way at the point of a blind corner. Put them at the road end of the path where they would be … [more]

[Image taken 25.10.22] Terry Avenue (entrance to Rowntree Park car park is first left), York. Re-spaced bollards. Now 84cm, 150cm (the minimum recommended in LTN1/20), 66cm. Context see: #185665.

Bollard storage.

The Netherton Road traffic filter has still not been modified to comply with Council Policy to allow cycles through, and this rusty stump of a post is a tripping, cutting and puncture hazard when trying to get around using the lowest point … [more]

[Image taken 15.9.22] Millennium Bridge behind me, looking towards Butcher Terrace, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The image shows the route that this sign: #185661 and this one #185668 - discussion: #185186 – tell cyclists … [more]

[UPDATE: On 21.9.22 an email from CYC said: "They will not be removed as they are needed to prevent unauthorised vehicle access to the pedestrian/cycle route."] [Image taken 10.9.22] Terry Avenue (Millennium Bridge/Butcher Terrace end), … [more]

Parking across a cycle track traffic filter. This area is a Controlled Parking Zone "park in marked bays only".

Missing bollards where Garriochmill Road becomes the Kelvin Walkway, with graffiti obscuring the sign. Yet other sections of the Kelvin Walkway have multiple barriers in the name of attempting to prevent access for motorbikes.

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

Still no reinstatement of bollards at any of the three locations that once had them at some stage previously. However, the sign advising of no vehicular access has been cleaned. (There is of course actually vehicular access for cycles.)

[Image taken 17.7.22] Asda, Jockey Lane, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. The left-hand arm of the 'T' and the motorcycle parking that is easy to access but has no infra to secure the machines to. All these bollards! Remove car parking and … [more]

[Image taken 17.7.22] Asda, Jockey Lane, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. Looking away from the 'T' in the non motorised users route through the car park towards Jockey Lane. But it's not signposted to anywhere. It's not clear who it's for and … [more]

[Image taken 17.7.22] Asda, Jockey Lane, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. There’s a ‘T’ at the end of the non-motorised users route through the car park. Turn right and you can see the cycle parking though the space between these bollards and … [more]

[Image taken 17.7.22] Asda, Jockey Lane, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. 210cm is tight for two-way pedestrian usage if you have a family, shopping... As there is nothing to say this is not also for people on cycles, it's 90cm too narrow … [more]

[Image taken 18.7.22] Lidl, James Street, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] The bollards around the edge of the pedestrian area are completely barricaded. There is disabled parking the other side but whoever uses it has to walk … [more]

The road end cycle track completely blocked by parked cars in Claremont Street.

[Image taken 14.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe, York. This e-cycle owner chose a trailer with a handle. Very practical. He said it saves him a lot of loading/unloading when moving purchases from the cycle to the garden where he'll be using them. You … [more]

[Image taken 14.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe, York. A second trailer user has found the cycle parking here today. But, people are finding it by chance. This person said previously he'd ridden to the back of the store and put his rig there. He'd … [more]

[Image taken 14.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe, York. On my first visit after the new provision went in I noted (see: #182710) the bollards were sufficiently far back to accommodate manoeuvring and... trailers. This one arrived while I was inside. … [more]

[Image taken 9.7.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. A sign has been added: Cycle shelter only. It's an attractive sign. Alas it is outside of the cycle parking so for some people this is not sufficiently clear/or a nudge to return their … [more]

[Image taken 7.7.22] Abbey Road, Knaresborough. On the day we cycled here there was yet another ‘What’s great about Harrogate and area’ TV programme listing the cliches… Betty’s, the Turkish baths… But there is much no- or low-traffic … [more]

Purbeck Road, Cambridge Lined with bollards, presumably to prevent motor vehicles being driven onto the footway. The alcove on the right is marked out with an OFO symbol - for the abandoned ofo bike scheme.

[Image taken 4.7.22] Lidl, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The bollards should be permeable. There are disabled parking spaces the other side of them. Other image here today and links: #183854.

[Image taken 7.6.22] Bootham Bar/High Petergate, York. Once again a driver is stopped in front of the bollard. This means legitimate users of the route (cyclists/hire e-scooter riders) cannot pass through. Filtered permeability only works … [more]

"Cycle Thieves We Are Watching You" notice, but non-standard stands installed too close to a wall is what's on offer here.

[Image taken 25.5.22] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. Further click and collect/carpark collect service space (see also: #182863). On my previous visit the taxi driver waiting in this space had the engine running all the time I was … [more]

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.

[UPDATE: #184365, #184366] [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 … [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22] B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. No problem with spacing in front (ahead of) the uprights. Compare with: #180534, #177528… 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: … [more]
