Counter on Millburn Road Active Travel Route

The new Golden Bridge across the A9 dual carriageway and sliproads, on the outskirts of Inverness. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-22058146 Note the pedestrian walking along the sliproad on the far side (see #631 ... [more]

The brand new Golden Bridge with its double-back ramp. There are steps on the opposite approach on this side of the bridge (see #63247).

The ramp to the Golden Bridge, but the Millburn Active Travel Route approaches from the left. Could the ramp not allow approaches from the west rather than enforcing a double-back with sharp corners? A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on a brand ... [more]

A blind corner at the path junction.

A dropped kerb has been positioned in the side of the turning head, which is fine for left turns onto the cycle path, but makes turns towards the flagship Golden Bridge (when it opens) somewhat awkward.

The start of the final piece of path to the Golden Bridge, but a big cycle symbol has been painted on an area of end-on car parking rather than in the middle of the useable road.

End of the pointless painted cycle lanes, full of parked cars, and a short section of dead-end road before going onto the cycle path to the Golden Bridge.

The start of another section of pointless advisory cycle lanes, in a 20mph zone, with residential car parking and no waiting restrictions.

Cycle symbols painted in the gutter and right next to parked cars.

A cycle symbol painted in the door zone next to a parking layby. Why not do something similar to #63149?

The start of the King Duncan's Road cycle lanes in Raigmore Estate.

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road leave so little room for other traffic that they are largely ignored by drivers. Sightlines are poor around the bend and on hill, so centre line removal isn't really an option. This is the main road int ... [more]

A pedestrian walks down the cycle lane to avoid the frosty footway. She rejoined the footway beyond the frosty part.

The point where cyclists are meant to leave the roadway is fortuitously just beyond the point where most pedestrians leave the footway to go down the steps to Old Perth Road. However, there's no indication what first-timers are meant to do, ... [more]

Users of the Millburn Active Travel Route are expected to leave King Duncan's Road at the dropped kerb before the start of the crash barrier, then use the footway and U-turn down the steep ramp at the end of the wire fence. Check your brake ... [more]

A steep ramp connecting Old Perth Road and King Duncan's Road, part of the Millburn Active Travel Route. At least it has been gritted.

The sign advising of the start of the shared-use footway (where the footway suddenly gets wider) and the toucan crossing where the Millburn Active Travel Route crosses Old Perth Road.

A general view of the most awkward section of the route. The Millburn Active Travel Route crosses Old Perth Road at the toucan crossing in the background, then climbs up to King Duncan's Road on the steep ramp visible above the traffic isla ... [more]

The widening of the footway ends before the roundabout, where it reverts to its former width, making it a bit narrow where sightlines are poorest.

No special facilities at this bus stop, either for the shared-use footway, or even for waiting bus passengers.

The central reservation of the dual carriageway has been narrowed to allow the footway to be widened.

Filtered permeability between the shared-use footway and the adjacent restaurant and hotel.

Some sort of differing surface has been laid around this tree, presumably to avoid problems with root damage.

A counter on the Millburn Active Travel Route.

The Millburn Active Travel Route comes off the carriageway, crosses Diriebught Road on a raised crossing, then returns to running alongside Millburn Road dual carriageway on the shared-use footway. The frost reveals that some people know ... [more]

The eastern end of the on-road section of the cycle route along Millburn Road.

The on-road section of the cycle route along Millburn Road.

A short section of the Millburn Active Travel Route is on this section of carriageway alongside the main dual carriageway, and is marked accordingly.

Lots of bins obstructing access to the Millburn Road shared-use footway.

The Millburn Road shared-use footway.

The Millburn Active Travel Route crossing Victoria Drive. The visibility of crossing traffic is somewhat poor westbound.

Moderately wide, but no separation between shared footway and carriageway, as laid out in Cycling By Design (Table 6.3). http://www.transportscotland.gov.uk/report/j185500-06.htm#table3 The surface is also formed with very smooth and sl ... [more]

The Millburn Road shared-use footway, with a "Recommended Route for Cyclists" sign which is meant to be used for on-road cycle routes.

I'm guessing westbound cyclists are meant to rejoin the road at this dropped kerb, but there's nothing to say.

The first sign on the Millburn Road shared-use footway, known as the Millburn Active Travel Route. https://www.flickr.com/photos/highlandcouncil/sets/72157649226697035/

The way for eastbound cyclists to access the cycle route appears to be to use 4 toucan crossings to get across Millburn Road.
