Bollard off the central spine cycle way by the Community Centre in Orchard Park

Make one-way streets two way for cycling! See #14051 from the opposite end.

Lovely cycling artery, interrupted by Circus Drive (which should give way to the cycleway), but its littered with dark, low bollards here and at the Community Centre. These are dangerous and need reflective material and markings. See al ... [more]

The low bollards on the edge of circus drive need reflective material. Clear markings should give the cycle artery priority over Circus Drive. Orchard Park should become a 20 mph zone. See also #48588.

Circus drive crosses the main cycling artery (School - Community Centre - Guided Bus) at Orchard Park. While there is a raised speed table there should be clear marking giving priority to cyclists. There have been many near misses and an ac ... [more]

As at so many other T-junctions, pedestrians and cyclists loose priority over side roads and turning traffic, like here at the entrance to the local primary school. The dropped kerbs are far removed from the junction with Ring Fort Road. He ... [more]

The T-junction on Chieftain Way with Rosehip Road is another example of a soft bend to minimise driver's loss of speed, with dropped kerbs away from the junction.

This cut-through is likely to become easily accessible for cyclists (once it has been finished) from Stanley Avenue. But cyclists will encounter a tall kerb on the other end at Chieftain Way. To see the Chieftain Way end of Vine Road #48584 ... [more]

Convenient cut-through for pedestrians, but the kerb on Chieftain Way is inconveniently tall for bicycles. The Stanley Avenue end of the cut through at Vales Place #48585.

Gallagher Estate thrived at making Orchard Park car centric. There are very few gardens and few green spaces, everything is paved over to provide space for cars. Southcam cycleparking standards however are insufficient. Bike chained against ... [more]

Cyclists can't legaly cycle to the Cyclebahn by the CGB from Iceny Way here. This no entry needs to be made "except cyclists".

Black then Red surfaces, yet the sign says dismount. I think the advisory "cyclists dismount" sign and blue shared use" signs need turning around, with the cyclists dismount replaced by "footway" with end of cycleway signs. From the o ... [more]

Another Cyclists Dismount sign (you will now enter the main carriageway) in Orchard Park (Chariot Way with Ring Fort Road) where there should be a blue "footway" sign with the addition of an "End of Cycleway" sign.

Pavements in Orchard Park lack clear signing. This section has an advisory "Cyclists Dismount" sign on the back of the blue shared use sign. From where this cyclist is coming from it is not clear weather cycling is permitted.

A shared use sign for the pavement at the Graham Road with Tooper Street junction. The back of the sign says "Cyclists Dismount". This is likely to be the incorrect sign. Cambridge Cycling Campaign is requesting clarification why no "footwa ... [more]

The cyclebahn next to the Guided Busway should have automatic detector loops at all crossings of side roads like Graham Road or Chieftain Way #48530.

Redmac pavement in Orchard Park misses shared use signs. The red colour changes on the most easterly and most westerly sections. The cycletrack needs clear priority over side-roads markings. Despite the cul-de-sac sign this is the cycle rou ... [more]

The cyclebahn next to the Guided Busway should have automatic detector loops at all crossings of side roads like Chieftain Way or Graham road #48535.

Cycleway on the Guided Bus maintenance track at Orchard Park is signed here as segregated use. No it isn't, it's shared as on the other 16 miles. Sign needs to be changed.

The entrance to Cornell Court features "cul-de-sac" signs. As at other place in Orchard Park they have to add "except cyclists", as the cul-de-sac is permeable for bicycles and pedestrians and bicycles are vehicles.

In April 2013 some road in Orchard Park (e.g. Cornell Court, Sweetpeas Way etc) had not been finished. The entrance to Cornell Court a features "cul-de-sac" sign - #48528, as at other place in Orchard Park an "except cyclists" needs to b ... [more]

Dropped kerb needs to be flush.

This redmac pavement may or may not be a cycletrack, it is lacking signage. Here the dropped kerbs follow the desire line but are not flush (see #48519). At Graham Road the dropped kerbs are far around the corner. There is also a colour cha ... [more]

The cycleway has an awkward bend, it should follow the desire line instead.

Increasing number of chicanes on what could be the main cycle route between eastern Orchard Park and Cambridge city centre. Remove barriers on both ends of the path. The bollard needs reflective material and markings on the ground.

There's no reason for this short link to be one-way for cyclists.

Informal access from Orchard Park development to new cycleway on its south border. A hard surface would be excellent at this location.

There is a tiny bit of cycle parking in Arbury/Orchard Park, eg at the Community Centre.
