Approaching a level crossing on Yarrow Road just as the gates are closing. This was on a #CamRideHome event.

Waiting at a level crossing

A big improvement on the old crossing, which required you to lift the bike over. These gates appear to be controlled by magnetic lock (I didn't look closely but there's an odd lump on the side of each one).

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting. However, the level crossing kissing gates remain.

The enduring charm of the rural railway at Wickenby level crossing. From the viewpoint of a train driver:

Norton Level Crossing allows cycles, but not motor vehicles, so acts as a modal filter preventing through traffic on Red Brow Lane.

Solar powered LED and reflective edge of cycleway stud. It is used here to mark the way across a level crossing, but could be used much more widely to mark the edges of unlit cycleways. UPDATE 2020: These have now been removed for some r ... [more]

A rare example of a properly justified "Cyclists Dismount" sign at the level crossing.

Kissing gates at railway crossing on John Muir Way.

Level crossing at Aspley Guise station.

Very odd - No Motor Vehicles signs on the righthand side of the road - is this so that cyclists can get ahead of the cars queueing at the level crossing?

Cottonmill Lane level crossing, St Albans. Just off NCN6 and NCN61, where the Green Ring heads off towards Verulamium Park.

Bikes locked to railings at Victoria Metrolink, but no obvious provision of any cycle parking stands.

Cycleway crosses 4-track tramway with just a forest of signs and a 'Give Way' triangle. No flashing amber tram crossing signals like elsewhere in the city centre, despite the complex and potentially confusing arrangement. The central refuge ... [more]

Bizarre routing of cyclists on Long Millgate between tramway crossing and link road to Corporation Street. The second cycle route sign appears to be sending cyclists up a one-way street the wrong way! This could have been designed far bette ... [more]

No cycling across/beyond this crossing of the miniature railway on the Cornesti Plateau, Targu Mures

Cycle parking outside Redcar Central station. There are also some lockers nearby.

Dear @networkrail van driver, please would you consider parking elsewhere, other than a contraflow cycle lane? 1/2

Garve Level Crossing Location: , Garve (Scotland, United Kingdom) Sign instructing cyclists to walk across the tracks at Garve level crossing due to the high skew the rails are at to the road.

Multi-stage caged toucan crossing across tramway and dual carriageway on South Gyle Broadway. It's clear what the local council's priorities are here. The observant will notice that the crossing call-button panel is for a pedestrian cros ... [more]

More cabinets (see #60679) on approach to toucan crossing and tramway level crossing.

'One of the closest near misses' I wonder if one reason this happened was that she regularly took a risk here and became de-sensitized to the danger?

See It says that 25,000 people per day walk across this level crossing. It is a headache for the rail company - but they've decided that they can't do anything more about it to improve ... [more]

Manned level crossing at Norbury.

Barriers at the end of the path where it meets a very minor road

A rather pointless gate across part of the path. Surely a drop-bollard would do.

Southbound on Strand Road, cyclists are expected to ride on the footway and dismount to cross the level crossing. None did in the time I was there.

The cycle lane bends to allow cyclists a crossing across the railway track that is closer to a right angle, to minimise the risk of being thrown off.

Mandatory Left Turn signs used at location where cycle route turns left.

Leaving Preston Marina doesn't involve crossing the railway tracks on the bridge. Advertising aimed at cyclists for nearby café.

Route sign where cycle path recommences after the bridge in #55260. But getting to it from the roadway involves a detour around the end of the railing.

Red sign reads "Cyclists are advised to dismount and cross the bridge on pedestrian footways". It may be more effective to warn cyclists to take care crossing the railway tracks. Perhaps a sign like in #19642.

Cyclists have been directed to use the pedestrians only route across the bridge rather than the roadway

Cyclists are encouraged to use route on which cycling is not allowed! This path leads to #55259. Red sign reads "Cyclists are advised to dismount and cross the bridge on pedestrian footways". The blue 'Cyclists Dismount' sign can be seen ... [more]

Lots of signs at level crossing

Route sign with destination, but with an estimated journey time instead of distance

Level crosssing on Teversham Road, Fulbourn.

Stop, Look, Listen - level crossing with sprung gates leading to NCN 62

Is it really necessary to have so many signs repeating the warning about the tramway crossing? If safety has been an issue then put in some flashing lights like other tramways have at crossings.

The cycle route doesn't even go over the tram tracks and yet there's still a Cyclists Dismount sign!

A level crossing at the bottom of a hill, BRAKE!!!!
