Video of using the footway because the road is so busy.. Mount Road, The Wirral https://twitter.com/edwardlamb/status/1484560443247149058?s=21

See #150276 This has been reported: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00384306.

Enjoying watching people dismount and then remount 2m later... https://t.co/98Wj8YG8rV

It made sense to someone… somewhere… https://t.co/vptZitAdIL

A fence has been built all around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery for the COP26 event. It blocks the footway (the one that might be shared-use due to the one-way carriageway) and the gate only opens across the carriageway,

This footway is significantly busier than when the area to the left was a scrapyard and not student accommodation. But the COP26 diversion route has been signed over this regardless.

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

No improvement at Argyle Street. However, the plastic barrier which had been pushed beyond the asphalt ramp has been restored to its intended position.

Narrow redesignated footway on expressway sliproad, with added fencing. When the fencing was installed, it blocked a dropped kerb at the toucan crossing ahead, but this had been resolved by the time I was there.

Very poor, unimproved roadside footway re-badged as a shared use path. Dreadful concrete surface, too narrow, vegetation encroaching. The cyclist in the picture has wisely chosen not to use it but this is a nasty stretch of road with HGVs t ... [more]

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion on Beith Street does not even extend to the Benalder Street junction. It, like the similar work on Argyle Street, is done to a poor standard and provides a narrow space for cycling alongside the ... [more]

Although the former steps connecting Milton Mains Road and Glenhead Road to the Great Western Road shared footway have been replaced by a ramp (as seen in #107326), at the other end the nearest dropped kerb (just out of the picture) assumes ... [more]

Lots of signs for drivers, some with posts in the shared footway/cycleway.

No crossing from shared footway/cycleway to sports facilities across the road.

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

"Cyclists Please Dismount" on NCN7 at Scottish Events Campus. Also "Pedestrians this way" without indicating a way. The footway is shared use. Update: The "No Cycling/Cyclists Please Dismount" sign in the photo above has since been remov ... [more]

@simon_nuttall @RantyHighwayman @cyclestreets Huntingdon Rd, Huntingdon, near Tesco’s . Here is another death trap for school children, in Godmanchester. 🙁 https://t.co/i0oxszV6rZ Note: similar photo from nine years previously: #45 ... [more]

The sign on the gate says "No Parking" but there is no enforcement. The footway forms the link between the partly installed toucan crossing across Craighall Road and the canal path.

The odd narrow footway arrangement under the Castlebank Street railway bridge approaching NCN7. There is a dropped kerb to join the path immediately after the bridge (see #173856), while the rest of the road is just a dead-end alongside NCN ... [more]

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosse ... [more]

The northern footway of Castlebank Street doesn't last long, and like South Street, has large gaps in it. A traffic island is the only aid for crossing. NCN7 shares the footway on the right with pedestrians. The site on the left is being ... [more]

The junction of Sawmill Road and South Street. NCN7 is visible on the footway to the right.

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The footway between Castlebank Street (or Beith Way) and Beith Street.

The northern footway on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former ra ... [more]

The resumption of the South Street footway at Ferryden Street was brief, and it comes to an end again after the car showroom built on the course of the cycle path. The path used to cross Harmsworth Street here on a former railway bridge. ... [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

South Street carries quite a lot of industrial traffic, due to the area it is in. So the cycle route (on the footway on the right) is so unattractive to these two cyclists that they prefer this road to the shared footway cycle route. The ... [more]

The footway on this side of South Street resumes, with the worn desire line continuous from #173806. The NCN7 cycle route on the opposite footway is not good enough to attract these two to use it.

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden ... [more]

Even this rebuilt entrance crossing does not have dropped kerbs for pedestrians.

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

The footway of Castlebank Street has been marked as a cycle route in OpenStreetMap, but there is no evidence to say so on the ground. However, it is a gap in the network, more direct and smoother in surface than the parallel NCN7 route, abo ... [more]

The footway of The Long Shoot has driveways to every house.

Hinckley Road, Nuneaton

Green strip cycleway missing parts, as well as being poorly implemented and signed, and blocked by scaffolding without any warning or diversion. Dropped kerb blocked by parked van.

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

Robot outside the Empress pub, Cambridge See #172332 www.robotdelivery.co.uk

A decent footway width on this Llandudno street.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

The pop-up two-way cycleway, which only just began back at the Provanmill Road junction, ends, and gestures for cyclists to go onto the footway at the motorway bridge.

Although not itself part of the National Cycle Network, Sustrans has provided "This way to" stickers for NCN routes 7 and 75 for this section of signed cycle route which meets up with the NCN routes in Cessnock. This section is part of a 'c ... [more]

The Hillington Road footway link between the residential area of Hillington and the industrial estate is not signed as being anything other than an ordinary footway, but I remember it been shown as proposed for redetermination in part of a ... [more]

Approaching the end of the Hillington Park cycle route shared footway on Mossland Drive. The section beyond Huntly Road is a dead-end and does not connect with anything. It does not even have a dropped kerb from which to join the carriagewa ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked by two parked cars in one of the unused entrances that interrupts the cycleway.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked ahead, opposite a huge car storage facility. See also #170682.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses an unused entrance on Mossland Drive.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses to the other side of the road on the approach to the roundabout at Kelvin Avenue, then crosses back again.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses to the other side of the road on the approach to the roundabout at Kelvin Avenue, then crosses back again.

The proper Mossland Road cycle route has a dropped kerb to cross to the entrance on the opposite side, but the newer cycleway on the opposite side does not have a dropped kerb to allow access to it.

Footways on both sides of Mossland Road are signed as cycle routes, but the far side has the wrong type of sign for the type of cycle route. The footway then just ends in a bush. No dropped kerb to cross.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Unlike #170674, the crossing is shared for both walking and cycling, and features a right-angle co ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Separate cycle and pedestrian crossings have been provided.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it.

The start of the Hillington Park cycle route, a shared footway along Mossland Road.

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling. The sign has an unusual partial yellow background. Normally yellow backgrounds are used with a full border, to make the sign more conspicuous. No need for this nonsense! ... [more]

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

This footway was once upgraded to a shared-use cycle route.

The bridge between the bascule bridge and the Inchinnan Bridge only has a narrow footway on one side. The access to the new bridge must therefore be via some new path constructed off to the left.

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

A ramp has been provided behind the bus stop, in addition to steps, to connect from Thornliebank Road up to Cartcraigs Road. (This does not form part of the cycle route, but could be used for connections to and from it.)

I came around the corner from Barrhead Road into Pollokshaws Road to find the footway there is now shared-use. There was no obvious start to this.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

The meeting point of Macfarlane Road and Milngavie Road, which includes a shared footway link between the northern part of Macfarlane Road and Killermont Road. On the right, a busy road to Canniesburn Toll.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

Continuous footway = good. Ridiculous kerb transition at the junction = dangerous. This will seriously hurt somebody turning across it.

First 'Copenhagen crossing' type junction (Footway/cycleway continuous, without kerbs, over side-road) in Cambridge

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

New pavement on #BrigadeRoad is almost ready! 🤯 Work started just about 5 weeks ago. https://t.co/FLy2Kc4czb

An Italian Job on Mill Road, plenty of outrageous driving through pedestrian areas in that movie! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Italian_Job

Great Shelford Broken bollard was reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00358336 Update 2021 Feb 01: Received notification that the bollard will be fixed within the next three months.

This is what my local council calls a cycling path! Might be better to rename it an obstacle course! https://t.co/AI2TRxAvvI

Has anyone @BuryCouncil considered how these these repeated kerbs / car driveway access arrangements (eg St Marys Rd, Prestwich) are a real barrier to disabled people, ppl with V small kids etc? @cllralanquinn @LBBuryS @pootlers @walkridepw ... [more]

Mock-up of a idea to improve access to the footway cycle parking. Motor vehicles often park right up or overhang the buildout and this creates problems of access to our front door as these other photos show: #6501 and #106944. The ram ... [more]

New link?

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

LÔN ADDA cycle route towards Bangor Station

LÔN ADDA cycle route on the shared use footway here.

The Queensway footway changes from asphalt to slabs, and shimmies to the side slightly. The drainage is poor.
