Cycleway alongside a trunk road.

Steep link betwen the arms of a junction.

A slightly wider path next to Greenhills Primary School, although the lampposts have been planted within the width of the path, making it effectively slightly narrower.

Arbury Road cycleway

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

The Wester Way alongside Phase 4 of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road. The lampposts have been planted in the path rather than alongside it (as has been done on the adjacent road), but other than this, it is built to a reasonable standard, an ... [more]

The dropped kerb required for cycling along the path in #100561, if it were not blocked by the parked van, is always obstructed by the lamppost. The 'No Through Road' needs an 'except cycles' sign if the path is to be considered to be pa ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

The Govan Road toucan crossing leads straight into a wonky lamppost on Pacific Drive. The footways straights ahead and to the right are both shared use.

Plenty of tyre tracks in the frost, and the lamppost (previously in the middle of the path as seen in #86772) has been relocated to the edge.

Shared use path on Bracknell High Street looking towards Skimpedhill Lane Location: , Bracknell (England, United Kingdom)

The white line warns you of the lamppost.

Bikes everywhere!

Where are all the bussists? Newly built disused bus stops on the Cathkin Relief Road, because the bus company quite sensibly decided it would rather continue running its buses along Fernhill Road. But still no excuse for the lighting col ... [more]

Boughton Road Recreation Ground, Rugby - path Location: , Brownsover (England, United Kingdom) Before heading back to Rugby Station (I went under the bridge on Mill Road), I wanted to check of the River Avon while I was in the town. ... [more]

No motor vehicles or cycles on mown verge - Swanshurst Lane, Moseley Location: Springfield, Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom) Seen from the 11C bus stop opposite. Not far from what was the Sarehole area. So many grass ver ... [more]

The path from Holytown to Eurocentral would be even better if the lampposts had been placed outside the width of the path. As it is they create an unnecessary narrowing at each post.

Potential for an impasse

Another tape-covered lamppost that has priority over cyclists.

Slow down and Give Way to a lamppost.

Lamppost in middle of path and flight of steps protected by hatching.

Paint and stripy tape will make it better!

Plenty of clutter around the Hansel footbridge and bus stop.

A section of the A77 cycleway being upgraded. Unfortunately the newly installed lighting columns now obstruct the path. With some forward planning, they could have been placed nearer the fence, out of the way of the cycleway.

Brand new. What a shambles. This council is ripping the pish out of us, folks. https://t.co/EWsktpLR7v

Lamppost partially blocking dropped kerb forming part of cycle route whose signs are fixed to said lamppost.

Not really designed as a cycle route. Ramp to underpass beneath Blackthorn Road, with obstructive lighting columns.

Sign obscured by lamppost.

A very narrow section of Clyde Gateway cycle track past the back of a bus shelter, and poor visibility of motor traffic for merge onto carriageway where there is a left-hook risk at the Dunn Street multi-lane junction.

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around it. Watch out for that lamppost! Bus shelter also hides cyclists merging onto carriageway just beyond, where there is a left ... [more]

A narrow path made narrower by the lighting columns being planted in the path. This is a signed cycle path.

A wind and solar-powered variable message sign to warn drivers of cyclists transferring between the shared-use footway and the on-road cycle lanes at the junction ahead. I wonder what it says. Two lampposts planted in the shared-use foot ... [more]

New lighting has been installed along the riverside path, but the lampposts have been planted in the path, obstructing it. It's 2015!

Street lighting being replaced. The new lampposts are sited almost in the middle of the footway. In fact this one is half a lamppost width further towards the centre than the previous one (which can be seen in the ground having been cut off ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. Some surface repairs being done here. The lighting may need some work too! www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road-safety-walking-cycl ... [more]

Shared-use path in Longstanton

Narrow Two-way Cycle path on pavement next to busy North Circular Road with signposts planted in the middle of the cycle path

While including a cycle track alongside this section of the tramway is commendable, planting the lighting columns within the width of the path is not.

A lamppost positioned in the worst place possible, in the middle of an already narrow path at a blind corner.

Not a good start for this new development to see cycles parked outside its entrance.

Hostile and grim the narrow shared use alongside the A10 gets even narrower because of these lamp posts. http://a10corridorcycle.com/

Milton Keynes - notice how the lamp posts are not blocking the cycleway.

Footway widening rendered useless by lamp post

Lamp-post in middle of A4 shared-use footway

No cycling Location: Mortimer Street, Trowbridge.

Shared pathway splits into two, sending pedestrians and cyclists either side of a hedgerow. Unfortunate the cycle lane has a lamppost in it.

Ermine Street on cycle track into Huntingdon - its a bit of a mystery what this number means. View the same scene ten years and one day later at #61267. Also related: #60727
