The road markings at this end of Thoday Street have been re-done. It looks like a better job than previously done in 2018: see #98813.

Was I imagining that this road got resurfaced last year? The sign for the junction ahead should show a crossroads, not just a junction on one side.

Almorah Road, Windmill Hill, Bristol Cycle markings on the carriageway next to stored motor vehicles are a very low quality cycle route.

The narrow advisory cycle lanes on Highburgh Road are almost invisible. The taxi is parked on a bus stop clearway.

Interesting repainting of give way markings in Oxford, reinforcing pedestrian priority in the revised Highway Code.

[Image taken 15.7.22] Railway Walk, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] I was doing a count (see: #169470). Greening the city is a strategy for softening spaces and addressing climate change. However, the foliage here is again … [more]

University Avenue at the western limit of its reworking. Note the centre line is less restrictive than the lane lines.

While the painted markings tell people to cycle in the middle of the road exiting Kelvingrove Park, a railing blocks much of the width of the road ahead. However, the dead space on the other side of the railing has been used for cycle … [more]

Correct give-way priority markings at private drive.

Experimental cycle route signage scheme on the redway system in the middle of a roundabout, Milton Keynes. These markings are a few years old and the system seems to have been abandoned now as there are new sets of more traditionally … [more]

Erased markings at the junction of the Old Dumbarton Road, Benalder Street and Ferry Road cycleways. The plans used in the consultation period showed a mini-roundabout!

The Bunhouse Road cycleway priority crossing as seen from the car park. Restricted visibility, tiny Give Way markings and an offside information sign.

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

Pedestrians on the left.... clown bicycles on right...? Or perhaps it's an ancient fertility symbol? Spotted on Wootton Way Maidenhead earlier. #cycling #activetravel 🚴

The road markings here are a mess, with hatching across the contraflow cycle lane, and no indication of priorities. There is, however, a Give Way sign facing traffic exiting South Portland Street. There is also a No Through Road sign below … [more]

Lanes for walking and cycling have been painted in various places in Kelvingrove Park, but are having little impact on where people actually walk or cycle. Not that the lack of compliance seems to cause any problems.

Outside Nando’s: the foreground the marker on the ground advises customers to wait there if they are collecting. The next marker indicates where the “Rider” should wait for their next delivery.

The narrow cycle lane markings on each side both suggest to ride away from the camera, but this is not a one-way section of the car park.

Fieetsstraat, Antwerpen

Saw this as cycled in this morning to round on one of our wards for patients with suspected covid-19. I’m guessing a fair few other staff @CUH_NHS & @RoyalPapworth also saw and appreciated the sentiment. Thanks to whoever involved. We’re … [more]

Spotted earlier. Short and to the point.

Hockley Farm Road passes under Leicester's ring road.

Looks like Wigan council didn't get the memo about greater manchester investing in cycle infrastructure. I genuinely didn't know these were cycle lanes until now. My shoulders are wider. Here's a tip, if you can't fit the bike picture in … [more]

An Access Walden campaigner tries to explain the strange logic of Essex County Councils safety audits which at first suggested a build out here, but then a further audit had them removed. The contents of the safety audits were kept secret … [more]

Access Walden campaigners walking Wendon Road to mark the launch of the changes. This section is one way for motor traffic with a solid line contraflow for cyclists. The burnt out markings of bicycles are evidence of the lack of experience … [more]

In ancient times, city planners scratched crude representations into the ground, hoping to summon bike lanes

Looking south into Garden Walk from Bateson Road. The road markings are standard for a two way street. At the southern end there are no entry signs with a cyclists' bypass - giving the impression to many motorists that it is in effect one … [more]

This narrow, bendy private drive is the car and bike access to the Westbrook Centre office parking. It will also become the entry and exit route for the 118 dwellings planned by Crest Nicholson on the former Cambridge City football ground. … [more]

Cycle markings on the Malago Greenway, leading to the Gaol Ferry Bridge, Bristol

Road closure in Jubilee Drive with gap for cycles

Contraflow markings on St Andrews Street now have arrows and are the full length of the road, following several requests for this. Makes the situation much clearer now.

Blotchy paving being laid.

Cyclists forced off the road by stupid road marking, turning left to go right.

White lines on the edges of this cycleway are particularly useful at night and when cycling in the opposite direction - when vehicle headlights can make it very difficult to see the path.

Elephants feet style markings on the road - there is confusion about what they mean. There's a drawing number WBM (R) 294 on the last page at: which explains they are 400mm square white … [more]
