Kenzies coach driver parks up illegally in Hills Road cyclelane whilst getting coffee. An increasingly popular stopping place. @LibralLady https://t.co/crxyXmwxRo

This was parked, not unloading as it went over the 40 minute grace period. Even unloading in a cyclelane is illegal.

Again*, illegally stopped up in a cyclelane. Just as a reminder from the Freight Transport Association, this is something not to do. http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/drivercard_1.pdf [PDF, bottom of page 3] ... [more]

Another illegal position from the Richmond Coaches driver. Just waited there for around 5 minutes. It is illegal to stop in a cyclelane. Even the FTA say don't do it. http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/driver ... [more]

Costa Coffee illegally unloading in a cyclelane. Something the Freight Transport Association advise never to do. Bottom of page 3 [PDF] http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/drivercard_1.pdf

This is a two lane entrance to the traffic lights. The queueing traffic to the left is doing a right turn which lights are only green for a short time. The other lane is clear to use with a green light. Apart from a bus across both lanes do ... [more]

Illegal stopping in cyclelane from @Richmondscoach.

Another example of misuse of the Hills Road cyclelane. And at a time when lots of children are likely riding from their school.

The key to this map says blue dashed lines are "Signed primary network separate from traffic". So why are developers putting up no entry signs as per https://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/87701/?

These "No Entry" signs appeared whilst Wilton Terrace was being demolished and there was restricted access at the other end. However, that's long over and there's plenty of space now. So are these signs still up to dissuade people cycli ... [more]

Blatant obstruction of Hills Road cycle track by a private vehicle. The driver claimed to work for Cambs Highways and to be dealing with a collapsed manhole cover in the verge, but I had seen him walk out of Holbrook Road and speak to a res ... [more]

UPDATE AT END. New sign asking "Cyclists please dismount". This has been a cycle cut through for the 27 years I've lived here. Note it's a private sign and not official, but this is a private estate. However, when estate planned, was it ... [more]
