Salford Bridges over Irwell . Barriers a little too close together on both sides of bridge.

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower an ... [more]

This footway is significantly busier than when the area to the left was a scrapyard and not student accommodation. But the COP26 diversion route has been signed over this regardless.

A busy footway that cyclists have been directed to use as part of the COP26 diversion route.

Narrow redesignated footway on expressway sliproad, with added fencing. When the fencing was installed, it blocked a dropped kerb at the toucan crossing ahead, but this had been resolved by the time I was there.

The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

The narrow path to Inchfad Drive does not have a dropped kerb at the Kendoon Avenue end, even though it should be a recognised crossing point from another path directly across the road.

The odd narrow footway arrangement under the Castlebank Street railway bridge approaching NCN7. There is a dropped kerb to join the path immediately after the bridge (see #173856), while the rest of the road is just a dead-end alongside NCN ... [more]

a cyclist leant their bike here. Only explanation https://t.co/vmLh9GKEKP

Dreadful footway shared use cycling scheme in Earl Shilton. At best the highway authority is trying to do something, but putting cyclists and pedestrians into conflict is not the answer.

The paving may be fancy, but the toucan crossing is decidedly substandard.

The staggered toucan crossing on Castlebank Street at the end of the fancy bridge from Beith Street has a rather narrow central island, made worse by the railing have taken a bit of a battering.

Parking bays have been painted on the road adjacent to the double white lines. Even on a bike, there is insufficient room to safely pass parked vehicles without crossing or straddling the double white lines. The parking bays and double whit ... [more]

Start of repainted narrow door-zone cycle lane in Whitefield Road.

Narrow door-zone cycle lane repainted.

Green strip cycleway missing parts, as well as being poorly implemented and signed, and blocked by scaffolding without any warning or diversion. Dropped kerb blocked by parked van.

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

A narrow but step-free ramp down from Lenzie Terrace towards Springburn Road. See also #173030.

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

Narrow and overhanging briars.

Leominster has several narrow passages in the centre

The path between Balmore Road and Aultbea Street is poor enough without this narrow barrier. The surface of the direct path to Castlebay Street, off to the right, is even poorer.

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling. The sign has an unusual partial yellow background. Normally yellow backgrounds are used with a full border, to make the sign more conspicuous. No need for this nonsense! ... [more]

A challenging place to ride! It’s impossible on this bike to go further because the width becomes narrower than the handlebars. It’s not a cycle route but a gap between a building and a wall.

'No Cycling' on the narrow path next to Robertson Park. There is a parallel route through the park where cycling is permitted.

Narrow barriers to negotiate at the end of the riverside path in Renfrew.

This footway was once upgraded to a shared-use cycle route.

The bridge between the bascule bridge and the Inchinnan Bridge only has a narrow footway on one side. The access to the new bridge must therefore be via some new path constructed off to the left.

A broken lighting column on the path between Station Road and Conon Avenue. As is commonly the case, the lighting columns have been placed in the width of the path and not to the side, causing local narrowings of an already not particularly ... [more]

[Image taken 22.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The cones have been moved. They no longer protect that space where the white car is from being parked on: see #169488. They also now reduce the space for people to pass through and are an obstr ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. [Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. This path is bi-directional shared use. But it is only just wide enough for a couple with a pushchair. For other images on this topic see: #167979 and ... [more]

Another helpful cycle lane [since modified]

Including the provision of cycle infrastructure as a condition of planning for private developments is a pointless exercise. This junk is in #Adare Co. #Limerick. I should win an award for staying upright while cycling with one hand on the ... [more]

[Image taken 14.4.21] Sheffields (racks) at Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The aisle (gap between the racks) is just 187cm wide. There was no room for me to be able to reverse out without lifting my cycle. For a second view of this site s ... [more]

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

Narrow public footpath behind the Pepys Way estate in Girton.

Public footpath on the right, gate on the left.

The path from Shields Road and Scotland Street runs alongside the northernmost section of Shields Road before rejoining the road. The asphalt strip gets progressively narrower, forcing everyone onto the cobbles.

[Image taken 16.3.21] York: Bishopgate Street junction with Price's Lane. The image clearly shows the space for passing a cyclist - advisory lanes - in either direction is insufficient. After taking this pic (from the pavement), I rejoined ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.20] York: Bishopgate Street junction with Price's Lane. See also: #165589 I have uploaded it to show the narrowness of the cycle lane, the carriageway, the bend, the walls. The signs and cones have long been removed. They ... [more]

Somehow most of the width of this road has been privatised with just a narrow footpath left.

Great Shelford Broken bollard was reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00358336 Update 2021 Feb 01: Received notification that the bollard will be fixed within the next three months.

Great Shelford

Kurz Bridge with narrow footways.

Cargo bike finally met its nemesis on @MertonCycling patch. This at the end of an alleyway half a mile long, no "no cycling" signage, and it's too narrow to turn an 8'6 bike around. Reversing up on foot it is 😡 https://t.co/fOgKLWAQqO ... [more]

Narrow Lane on Cambridge Retail Park, and there's a 5 mph sign. (You need to be pretty skilled to cycle as slow as that!)

Vanishing point The white line goes right up to the kerb where there's a lamp post at which point the cyclist disappears!

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.

The cycle marking is facing the wrong way round.

Cambridge Retail Park Advisory sign suggests that cyclists stick to that narrow lane. "Cyclists use cycle lane only" and there's a 5 mph sign.

Newly marked narrow cycle lanes on Cambridge Retail Park. The white line goes right up to that kerb at which point the cyclist vanishes!

Cambridge Retail Park A new narrow cycle lane has been marked out, narrower than the space allocated to the footway. Narrow cycle lanes draw cyclists to the edge of the road where they are less visible to vehicles parking / unparking.

The doorzone pop-up cycle lane returns to the kerbside in Bilsland Drive, but the car parking continues towards the pinchpoint.

The start of the next section of pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive. The centre line has been realigned.

The pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at the junction with Shannon Street. The parking layby outside the shops is not wide enough for the vehicles parked there, leading to them spilling over into the cycle lane.

The hideously narrow cycle lanes painted recently in Girton. Too narrow for a person in a handcycle to use, and often covered in parked cars anyway.

Very narrow path with no width to pass others.

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😶 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

Work on the Coton path. Shouldn't close the path and clear through the West Cambridge site. It's sewer works. Great job for a hot day!

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

The Milton High Street Horror show. Today, someone somewhere, decided to paint a new advisory cycle lane down Milton High Street. Width is under the minimum size (1.2m vs 1.5m). Will encourage traffic to close pass and shout out of their w ... [more]
