Give way markings have appeared on the absurdly narrow 2-way covid popup cycleway.

OK, so it is a good thing that Halton Council have allowed cyclists to use the Runcorn busway. But, why on earth construct this special speed bump for cyclists to ride though the queuing passengers rather than just simply keep to the virtua ... [more]

A short narrow cycle facility featuring assorted barriers and cones, give way markings at each end and a right angle turn. What on earth were the designers thinking about?

Is this a replacement for the stands in #164638 and #164639, removed perhaps to give pedestrians space for social distancing ? Not very impressive.

Carriageway reallocated to create wider footway with temporary bus boarding platform as a response to the covid pandemic.

Parking spaces taken out to widen the footway as a response to the covid pandemic. I'm not sure why they didn't take the whole width of the parking bay - or indeed some of the carriageway, which is very wide at this point. UPDATE Novembe ... [more]

Pavement so narrow that the sides of the bus shelter had to be removed - yet the council put signs up telling pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap". How? UPDATE 25th June: Carriageway space has been reallocated to widen the bus stop: #139538

The high street is very wide and even has space for parking bays, yet the best Warrington Borough Council can come up with as a response to the pandemic is stickers telling pedestrians to maintain their distance on the narrow pavement left ... [more]

What is needed is wider pavements - not signs telling pedestrians to mind the gap on a pavement that is obviously too narrow. The road is very wide here. UPDATE 25th June: barriers have been installed to widen the footway: #139535

Just putting stickers down to tell pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap" when the pavement squeezes between a building and railings is rather missing the point.

Good that cyclists are exempted from pop-up covid left turn ban at the end of Winmarleigh Street, but it is a real squeeze to get into the cycle lane past the sign at elbow height. It's not as if the road is narrow.

Half-width covid-19 pop-up cycle lane on the Kingsway bridge. It is only 1.2m between the fence and the cones so much too narrow to ride comfortably. Heading in the other direction it makes it very difficult for cyclists to turn right onto ... [more]
