Route to Fen Drayton, signed as a diversion while the cycleway to Swavesey is under construction.

Farmers... so territorial. Cyclists have to dismount here on the temporary 'farm access' link from Fenstanton to Swavesey beside the new A14.

Shared-use path from the A14 bridge towards Conington, with the temporary 'farm access' link to Swavesey turning left (and a footpath to the right).

Shared-use path from Fen Drayton to Fenstanton - I'm not sure there's room to use it in the other direction too.

End of shared-use path out of Fenstanton

Shared-use path out of Fenstanton - to the right, the Cyclists Turn left sign dates from when the A14 was just ahead and is not strictly needed now.

Shared-use path out of Fenstanton

No Entry except buses and good vehicles on this short-cut - cyclists can use the shared-use path to the left but still, it would be make sense to officially allow them to use the road (like the cyclist in the distance).

Bridleway under the A1307 from Fenstanton - dropped kerb needed.

Bridleway under the A1307 to Fenstanton - with mounting block for horse-riders

The old road is only a dead-end for motor vehicles - cycles and pedestrians have an underpass beneath the A1307. I'm a bit surprised the priority hasn't been changed as virtually all the motor traffic takes the road to the right.

No dropped kerb at the start of this shared-use footway and link to the new development - tokenism, in other words.

Bus stop and shared-use footway at a new housing development

Shared-use footway towards St Ives - cyclists can stay on the old road ahead where cars take the new road to the right.

Bus stop with cycle stands - and what might be a stretch of shared-use footway.

Better markings here on this shared-use path.

Narrow shared-use path, basically only marked in the other direction - but there is some street lighting at this end.

This is too narrow to be much use as a shared-use path.

This seems to be the only work that's been done to create a shared-use path here.

This is marked as a shared-use path in the other direction, but it's too narrow to be much use anyway.

OpenCycleMap shows this path as shared-use but there's no evidence on the ground.

There's a largely redundant dual-carriageway, but instead of taking a lane to provide the missing link cycleway between Swavesey and Fenstanton, they're spending much more time and money on a new alignment in the fields.

Dead end for cars (cut off by the former A14) but not for pedestrians or dismounted cyclists.

Cut-through in Fenstanton - not easy for cyclists

Dropped kerb needed at this cut-through in Fenstanton

No Entry to the slip road from the A1307 (the former A14) and one of various car-oriented housing developments here.

The A1307, formerly the A14

Astonishing - the new shared-use path by the A1307 comes to an abrupt end here, by the south/eastbound carriageway, with no way across for north/westbound cyclists etc. Also seen by: https://twitter.com/edwardjtaylor/status/129756095230 ... [more]
