The bollards removed for COP26 still have not been reinstated, and the plastic box keeps getting moved aside, allowing drivers to enter and leave the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds from Argyle Street, at the pedestrian crossing (see … [more]

A poor road environment on Sauchiehall Street at Charing Cross, leading to these two cycling on the footway and traffic island. And they weren't the only ones.

St John Street, Newport Pagnell

Rail trail Wolverton to Newport Pagnell.

A thank you to @CambsCC! Work to improve signs at a Histon Guided Busway crossing has also removed an unnecessary barrier, improving the accessibility through this link. https://t.co/2PxJkyWjHP

Was I imagining that this road got resurfaced last year? A very poor surface on a road that supposedly is the flagship Colleges Cycle Route. See #186854.

The cycleway on Newmarket Road at the crossing to Coldham's Common is flooded. The extent of the problem means that cyclists wishing to avoid the puddle are forced into the busy motor traffic lane. This can be a tricky and difficult … [more]

Inadequate crossing of the busy A390 to reach the Newham Trail, Truro

Contraflow

Traffic signals out again on Craighall Road. Not easy to see approaching traffic around the bend! The cycleway crosses here to get to the canal path at Speirs Wharf.

Incorrect corduroy 'hazard' tactile paving used on Sighthill Avenue, in contrast to the correct 'cycleway' paving mostly used on Pinkston Road. This is one of the main flagship routes in Sighthill.

It’s Friday afternoon, so who wouldn’t want a bit of informal side street zebra action from Cardiff (Llandaff North & Whitchurch)? Three locations, four crossings. https://t.co/49tary6dZT

The St Andrews Drive cycleway is now rideable.

Toucan crossing on North Canal Bank Street, connecting the cycleway to the bascule bridge over the canal.

There appear to be Belisha Beacons on those lighting columns, but they are covered with some kind of tape. This looks therefore like some kind of failed attempt to construct a pedestrian crossing.

Cardiff Council are trialling simple zebra crossings in a number of locations in Llandaff North and Whitchurch. This one has just been put in on the corner of Bishop's Rd and Merthyr Rd. Drivists on the local Facebooks are livid. … [more]

Old habits die hard when there's months between installation and commissioning, and this cyclist, despite having triggered the detector, went straight to the pedestian crossing rather than waiting at the cycle signals.

A regular location for bikes parked to the fence, on Bunhouse Road outside the Kelvin Hall.

No improvement on last year then. Leaf mess all over the path, and the tactile paving is still wrong.

Cycles only beyond this point? The one on the nearside of the crossing should not be there, and signs to diagram 955 should have the bicycle symbol with the front wheel to the left. Just after I took the photo, a delivery van driver used … [more]

Highburgh Road, resurfaced, but awaiting reinstatement of road markings besides the stop lines for the toucan crossing.

Another planter displaced in Kelvin Way. Time for something more permanent.

Work continues on the Gorbals Street cycleway, which will form part of the South City Way. This is the toucan crossing where NCN756, the South Bank cycle route, crosses.

Contactless method of activating the crossing.

Still no replacement bollards at the western end of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

Revised road and Bears Way cycleway layout at Allander Leisure Centre access road, which now also serves as access to a couple of residential developments. The crossing seen in #72183 has been replaced by a toucan crossing associated with … [more]

A toucan crossing on Main Street, Milngavie, where the Bears Way cycleway crosses from one side to the other, missing one of the beg button call boxes. It also took so long for the lights to change that I found a gap in traffic on this busy … [more]

Most folk may cross without making use of the toucan crossing in Kelvin Way, but that's no reason to block the crossing with planters. This raises accessibility issues.

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.

[Image taken 17.7.22] Monks Cross Park and Ride, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. Why don't 'people' have priority over vehicles at this crossing? It should be a continuous and/or parallel crossing ie with motorists having to cede to people … [more]

B6069, Clarkehouse Road, Sheffield

Arundel Gate, Sheffield

No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

Plenty of car parking spaces, but cycle parking hidden away on side streets. The rubber tactile matting is in a state of decay.

Dual pedestrian/cycle crossing on Liddell Street, part of the Cottingham/Hull route.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. On this occasion the signal was triggered by someone cycling on the footway opposite. See also #183675.

A parallel cycle zebra crossing across Strathfillan Road, on the West Mains Road cycleway, that does not involve deviation from the alignment of the cycleway (as happens at some other junctions). The proper cycleway ends just after where … [more]

The West Mains Road cycleway at the Torrance Road junction. It looks like a cyclops junction is under construction, but traffic signals have yet to be installed. However, there is no provision for cycle left turns, and a bollard with an … [more]

The West Mains Road cycleway at a parallel cycle zebra crossing, but 'ahead only' signs ban its use for cycles from this direction. Maybe it is only to be used for crossing from the other side of the road.

The West Mains Road cycleway at the Kirktonholme Road junction. The crossing is out of alignment from the main cycleway, and 'ahead only' signs displayed on bollards ban cycle left turns into Kirktonholme Road. Why?

The West Mains Road cycleway approaching the Kirktonholme Road junction where the crossing is not in line with the main cycleway.

A parallel zebra crossing, and start of the West Mains Road cycleway. The bollard on the right is directing cyclists up a flight of steps!

Having protected cyclists along Cornwall Street, the cycle lane ends by spitting them out onto the Centre Roundabout. This may be temporary.

The Cornwall Street cycle lane at the Fire Station. Incorrect corduroy tactile paving has been used instead of the cycleway type at the pedestrian crossing.

There is a branching cycle route along Brouster Hill as well as the continuing route along Cornwall Street. Corduroy tactile paving has been used instead of the correct cycleway type.

The Cornwall Street cycle lane deviates at both side road crossings.

Commercial drivers have realised that there are no consequences from failing to comply with laws.

Cycle parking in Gibson Street, on the Colleges Cycle Route. The road lacks any cycle facilities, other than parkings stands. The delivery van is parked on the zig-zags of a pedestrian crossing. The sign to the right of the picture is … [more]

Another view of the 'Give Way' line in #182981. Note the pedestrian using the diagonal cycle crossing.

A detector has now been installed at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road.

While the two crossings on Maryhill Road are pedestrian crossings, the crossing on the Hopehill Road side of the junction is a toucan crossing.

'Give Way' lines leading from the footway onto the roadway of Maryhill Road.

New detector strips have been installed at the North Woodside Road cycle traffic signals at the Maryhill Road crossing. UPDATE 16/6/2022: Arriving by bike, the detector did not cause the button to light up, so I had to press the button in … [more]

Detectors have been installed in the Argyle Street footway at the crossing to Bunhouse Road, not just on the side that cyclists will be approaching from, but also on this side which is not part of any cycleway. The signals remain bagged, … [more]

A detector has been installed in the Bunhouse Road cycleway, but is so close to the traffic signal users will have almost stopped before being detected.

The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

The finished replacement crossing on North Woodside Road at Maryhill Road. Note the Ahead Only sign on the traffic signal.

Although Glasgow City Council has declared that closing Kelvin Way to motor vehicles is to be permanent, none of the motoring infrastructure has been removed. The railings, kerbs, bollards, parking meters, and this toucan crossing all … [more]

My latest @InTandemTshirts blog post is a review of the new (red!!!) cycle tracks on Liverpool Street, Salford which I think are pretty good! I'd love to hear people's views on it, particularly if you've ridden it! https://t.co/GEUr8Cmv4K … [more]

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

Cycle parking on Argyle Street, plus some random driver failing to yield to pedestrians crossing the road.

Kerb on eastern side has been moved a little too, to narrow the carriageway. Speeds are still high and visibility on approach from East poor. No contracting tarmac and markings are hard to see. Some cars give way, most don't even notice the … [more]

Kerb upstand on eastern side of crossing is nowhere near flush. Upstand of 20-25mm is higher than my tyre.

Linton Greenway Crossing of Cherry Hinton Rd at Babraham Rd roundabout. Not great but better than before. Carriageway has been narrowed, but roundabout geometry still too fast.

Crossing of Babraham Road upgraded to single-stage, as part of Linton Greenway works.

Upgraded crossing of Babraham P&R site entrance. Part of Linton Greenway works.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway signals at Argyle Street remain under wraps.
