[Image taken 7.1.22] Low Ousegate, York. 'Tram track'-style damage. Longitudinal, direction of travel cracking that can trap a cycle wheel. Even crossing such damage can make the handling of a cycle unpredictable. This is a busy spot after ... [more]

[Image taken 3.1.22] Manor Lane, York. The speed cushions are ineffective - they do not reduce motorists' speeds. BUT the effect on people who cycle can be considerable. The cushions have been repaired so extensively there is ‘scar tissue ... [more]

[Image taken 10.12.21] Clifton Backies, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location. Location is approximate.] Direction of travel cracking. This route is a nature reserve so not artificially lit. Plus it is very well used, further, the wid ... [more]

[Image taken 25.11.21] Manor Lane, York. Speed cushions showing considerable but typical wear. They are supposed to force drivers to reduce speed. Instead – as the location of the damage shows – they simply straddle them. For people on ... [more]

Feeing for the owner of this newish looking bike locked up on the corner of Berwick and Gt Marlborough St in Soho- the roadworks further along the road mean that large vehicles turn right and perhaps don’t check what they’re running ove ... [more]

The traffic signals poles have been damaged.

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.

These heavy bikes eh? https://t.co/X3IWkOwrEC

[Image taken 20.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The Network Rail employee removed this split bag (therefore redundant and a trip hazard) on his own initiative. Context image: #172322. Other images tod ... [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] One of two barricades that have, it appears, been abandoned. They have been moved around. The sandbags and the feet are trip hazards. The black bag is n ... [more]

[Image taken 12.7.21] Lendal Bridge, Station Road junction with Rougier Street, York. I have been reporting the (latest) cracking here since 27.12.2019. I have rechased this today as I saw that the wheels of every vehicle that went into it ... [more]

[Image taken 25.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The two barricades that were creating/protecting a route from/to the car park and the cycle-ped-wheelchair route (see: #169993) are now in different places. This one is being driven over. The o ... [more]

Update. On 27.6.21 I saw most of the holes had been filled though not the first one (see: #171156) inside the orange markings - so cyclists still have to look down and pick their way through in the three directions you can turn here. [Image ... [more]

A section of tree root damage on the riverside path, next to the golf course. There was another smaller area of tree root damage over next to the River Cart.

Residential cycle parking needs to be a bit more secure that just stands in the street. It could also be further away from the kerb to allow room for opening car doors.

Update: On 27.6.21 I saw this had been patched. [Image taken 29.5.21] Bootham junction with Gillygate, York. My camera (5.5cm x 9.5cm) now easily fits into the damaged area around this Yorkshire Water access cover. However, it looks as if ... [more]

A broken lighting column on the path between Station Road and Conon Avenue. As is commonly the case, the lighting columns have been placed in the width of the path and not to the side, causing local narrowings of an already not particularly ... [more]

Very little remains of the Langdale Street pop-up cycle lane. Just a painted lane now, with car parking and some inside lane driving occurring too. See https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/news/18478995.glasgow-north-cycling-activists-create-p ... [more]

[See newer image: #170854] [Image taken 22.5.21] Lendal Bridge/Station Road at the Rougier Street end. The orange spot means it's been found and marked for action. I'm concerned the damaged ASL (see: #168910) next to it will have to get sim ... [more]

[Update 29.5.21 see: #169770] [Image taken 4.5.21] Bootham junction with Gillygate, York. The damage around the Yorkshire Water access cover has not been repaired. Compare the damage with that in March 2021: #165685

Bollard down in Yoker.

Damaged cycle parking stands on Jamaica Street. The "except buses, taxis & cycles" sign on the traffic signal is obscured by a sticker.

The signs for the Forth & Clyde Canal diversion (see #155655) are no longer pointing the correct ways.

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. Two issues. Problem 1. The cycle parking is nowhere near the trolleys or the supermarket entrance/exit - see: #167030. Problem 2. The cycle parking is on a slope. I need both hands to load my c ... [more]

Dislodged armadillos on Bilsland Drive pop-up cycle lane.

Ponding and tree root damage on the rebuilt section of canal path at Blairdardie.

[Image taken 19.3.21] Bootham/Gillygate York is not a straightforward junction. On a cycle it can be hairy. No, it can be hazardous. The oncoming drivers (from St Leonard's Place, in the Bootham turn lane) have a blind corner due to the cit ... [more]

[Image taken 9.3.21] Extensive potholing on Museum Street, York looking towards the Minster. Turning from St Leonard's Place INTO Museum Street is always fraught. There's an ASL but drivers often try to pass on the right to get onto Lendal ... [more]

Bad tree root damage to the path between Campbell Street and Lochburn Road, and no access from Sandbank Drive where there is also a flytipping problem.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

Unfortunate that part of the Clyde Walkway is still closed after fire last year. Mind you, it was narrowest bit (between Kingston bridge and Squinty bridge). At least the road is quieter now and easier for distancing. Still not sure what wi ... [more]

The steps on the southwest side of the Queensway footbridge have been shut due to deteriorating concrete, leaving only the steps to the southeast for users. Perhaps it's time this footbridge was replaced.

A damaged sign at the start of East Kilbride's local route 1 in Andrew Street. I think this was the only sign I saw with a blue background to the route number instead of an incorrect red background. No sign for the turn from the opposite ... [more]

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

@edinhelp @ 350 Leith Walk https://t.co/EoG9JprzQk

Nothing says ‘Quietway’ quite like some destroyed child-sized bollards! @willnorman https://t.co/Kt2gO4YMSe

Hey Siri, show me a crushingly unsubtle visual metaphor for @CityWestminster’s transport policy https://t.co/aouib5ezJi

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

Signs for various destinations. The blue sign with tiny writing is for the HArTT cycle route. Perhaps the broken bits beneath the other signs are the remains for the HArTT sign for the other direction.

A damaged sign facing the wrong way.

Extremely poor finishing at the expansion joint at the north end of the Eurocentral bridge over the M8 motorway.

Think I’ve worked how the wands in Alfred St are getting damaged ? https://t.co/llr9K9KoN4

The cycleway from the Clyde Tunnel has been blocked by a damaged guardrail. The CCTV coverage does not appear to have led to a speedy repair. The cube sign gives directions that are different from the green sign below it.

Direction sign for secure cycle parking in Cadogan Square partly obscured by whatever UB07 signifies. The size of the text also makes it hard to see, and the sign at the next junction is even less conspicuous.

The path to Riverside Street collapsed when the river level changed. It wasn't looking too good before that either. If I owned one of those flats, I'd be asking my councillor what was going to be done about this.

The South Bank cycle path, which only opened a few months previously, collapsed when the river level changed. A diversion has been arranged through the adjacent car park (see #95382).

The cycle parking stands outside the Kelvin Hall are hopeless and need replaced. Bolting stands onto block paving is not sufficiently secure in a street environment. See also #95251.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

It turns out bolting cycle parking stands to block paving isn't very secure. Who knew? See also #95296.
