Confusing signage for the COP26 diversion that has now ended.

[UPDATE: Despite the sign indicating this was a long-term diversion "Mon-Fri 8.30-5.30 Follow diversion" I got a reply from the Environment Agency that said it was a diversion for a couple of hours: "That diversion notice was in place for a ... [more]

COP26 diversion signs on Old Dumbarton Road. The one on the tree is indicating separate diversion routes for walking and cycling, due to the direct route along Argyle Street being quite a busy main road.

[Image taken 9.11.21]. Spen Lane, junction with St Andrewgate, York. This sign clearly shows the direction for people on the diversion from #175681 and trying to reach: #175680. But there’s a junction (with St Saviourgate) and a dogleg be ... [more]

[Image taken 9.11.21]. Aldwark, junction with St Saviours Place, York. A sign alerts people on cycles there is a diversion in place. Other images – and context - this subject today: #175680 and #175682 and links.

A sign advising of the diversions for NCN routes 7, 75 and 756, facing people heading away from the diversions.

So is the diversion for NCN7 straight ahead, or left?

Fallen signs on the path, and temporary signs that aren't too helpful (see #175562).

A busy footway that cyclists have been directed to use as part of the COP26 diversion route.

"Diversion cyclists dismount" on Waterloo Street. No explanation as to where the diversion leads (other than an NCN7 emblem), or any obvious reason why cyclists might need to dismount. There were no further signs to be seen further along th ... [more]

The cycle route diversion sign on the left-hand side of the road is not particularly noticable from the West City Way cycleway.

I was surprised at how flimsy this barrier was, compared to all the others. Maybe there's a wall of steel barrier further on.

A COP26 diversion sign on Old Dumbarton Road.

Back to business as usual with the traffic racing round the Benalder Street/Old Dumbarton Road junction.

A diversion sign halfway along Kelvinhaugh Street.

The flow of the one-way system on West Greenhill Place has been reversed, with a contraflow cycle lane added. The No Entry signs have been painted over, but the paint appears to be washing off! A diversion sign for the cycle route has been ... [more]

Temporary one-way system on Elliot Street, and a cycle route diversion sign.

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe. https://t.co/6bNuDzihB0

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is not finished, but it is open, and the COP26 diversion is now active.

A diversion sign for the NCN7 COP26 diversion route obscured by a parked van. Not the van driver's fault, of course, since it should have been placed somewhere where it could be better seen.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

A short but awkward diversion around some ongoing work, see #170152.

[Image taken 9.6.21] Skeldergate, York. I noticed this sign today. Perhaps because the street was quiet so I could look ahead? And because my eye naturally followed the vehicles ahead? I can't read the yellow sign in the background in the i ... [more]

[Image taken 29.5.21] Station Avenue/Station Road, York near the city walls. This sign seems at odds with that in: #169848. Also, people on cycles displaced from the riverside are pushing their cycles here, so it's not just pedestrians that ... [more]

[Image taken 31.5.21] Skeldergate, York. This sign has appeared. I saw it for the first time today because I was looking for diversion signage before I got to: #169091. It's big but high up and, critically for me, it's generic. Hence my not ... [more]
