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]

Slow for the incorrect tactile paving and portaloo.

The raised crossing at the junction of Old Dumbarton Road and Bunhouse Road is now in place. The tyre-grabbing incorrect tactile paving is still in place on the cycleway.

Slow progress on the North Canal Bank Street cycle track. The surface is now in on the cycle track side, but not the pedestrian side. The tactile paving is still the incorrect tyre-grabbing hazard type. This is the end of the cycle track.

Shared use cycleway on Coventry Road, Nuneaton.

A raised crossing at this side access point, but not quite a continuous footway/cycleway.

The correct Cycleway tactile slabs have arrived in North Canal Bank Street and await fitting in place of the incorrect corduroy Hazard tactiles.

Another helpful cycle lane [since modified]

A section of new road linking Cable Depot Road to the Clydebank College area. This section is as yet unopened. Here the road is raised to footway level, and corduroy tactiles are used to mark the limit of the carriageway.

A new toucan crossing next to Miller Street. The carriageway has been raised to the same level as the footway, and corduroy tactile paving is used to mark the edge of the footway since the kerb is flush.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect. UPDATE: The raised crossing has been installed, but the tactile paving remains incorrect. See #175266.

Transition between segregated paths and shared footway, with incorrect corduroy tactile paving.

The path from the Waterloo Road car park ends at the Aldi car park, but another path connects across to Ferncliffe Road. Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles have been used in place of cycleway tactiles.

Cycleway under construction on the road passing Leicester's railway station.

Nice looking cycleway here - but follow it and it gives up near the junction ahead. Also that sign on the left has the transport modes the wrong way round (but at least it is off the path).

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here. Incorrect corduroy tactiles have been used.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

Taunton shared use footway see comment at #93459.

A really weird way to create a pedestrian crossing of a cycleway. Basically, there's a short segment of shared-use. As a result there's an overusage of tactile pads. TSRGD 16 now allows Zebra crossings without Belisha beacons to be deplo ... [more]

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".

Extremely dangerous angled ridge markings avoid at all costs and complain to council

Newarke Street, Leicester This is a route from the city centre to De Montfort University.

Milton Keynes pernicious signage that suggests that this cycleway is only for the walker, that is backed up by the way the corduroy paving is laid. Also unusual here is the sign that is folded in the closed position.

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Some of the barriers have been removed to make this route accessible by cargo bikes and child carriers. About time, given it goes to a local primary school!

Cycle lane between pavement and bus-stop. I wasn't impressed with this facility, until I found myself using it the other day, travelling west-bound to Leisure park cycle racks. It only really has use for reaching / leaving Leisure park: ... [more]

Elephants footprint crossing leads cyclists onto a cycle lane on the wrong side of a dual carriageway.

What on earth were they thinking when they painted this?

Two cycle tracks? which side are pedestrians meant to be on?? Ed: The corduroy paving suggests the left side is for cyclilng and the right for walking.

Shared-use route to road crossing

Tactile paving is just a pointless nuisance unless it is installed correctly. Worse, it will confuse the people that it is supposed to help. This is an example of how people put tactiles down without bothering to find out how it is suppo ... [more]

The cycleway along here is an unpleasant experience because of the busy road environment.

This is a classic - how do you cycle along this strategic local cycle route? Better barriers are required!

They\'ve got the corduroy paving on this cycleway/footway the wrong way round! The cords should be across the footway (foreground), and with the cycleway (on the right).
