[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]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. More paint and two more cycle symbols. Perhaps in such a wide expanse of tarmac the paint helps people on machines that take up less space orient/position themselves? If everyone used … [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Detail of paint markings in #173594. More recent cycle-friendly, cycle journey-encouraging measures close by #169455. Other images here today: #173593 and links.

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. The paint shows that people on cycles are permitted to use the roundabout, perhaps also that they do. Does it therefore also encourage cycling? It doesn't give any protection. Other … [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Cycle lane on exit from Screwfix. Unsegregated. Streetview shows the markings were added between May 2012 and Jun 2015. To turn right I would not use the 'round the outside' rings, … [more]

Start of the faded door-zone cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane in the opposite direction has already expired by this point.

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

Cycling in the cycle lane on Gorbals Street. The taxi driver driving behind the bus then barged through this group of four cyclists to park in the layby. The permanent cycle provision for this road can't come soon enough!

The speed humps are freshly painted, but the cycle lane is looking rather faded.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

Very little remains of the Langdale Street pop-up cycle lane. Just a painted lane now, with car parking and some inside lane driving occurring too. See … [more]

Car parking in the Langlands Road cycle lane and footway. No waiting restrictions.

Cycle lanes being used for car parking, without any waiting restrictions. Designed for failure.

Is it a mandatory cycle lane? If so, why is it marked as a straight on and left turn lane? The protection has ended. NCN75 is on the shared footway alongside.

The "protection" on this protected cycle lane is pretty minimal. Compare with #117893. Still some people using it in the opposite direction though, showing there's demand for a protected two-way facility.

This is meant to be a protected cycle lane, but there is no protection on this section, just paint!

@GlasgowCC Is this still a bike lane? Faded paint, totally unenforced, drivers treating it with contempt. St Andrew's Road. @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/1K0CTIfjrS

A short section of cycle lane on Seaward Street, but not really any use for crossing at the toucan crossing.

Quality HGV parking in the cycle lane at Tesco!

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on … [more]

The advisory cycle lane in University Avenue changes to a mandatory cycle lane, but the double yellow lines stop.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Glasgow cyclists, be very wary of the new cycle path at Mosspark Boulevard & Drumbrek Road, The removal of cones means cars are treating it as a left hand car lane. You could get hit by oncoming traffic https://t.co/HdESW6m0eK

We asked for #SpaceForPeople, but we didn’t ask for skinny lanes, no segregation, and real life experience of the surface of the moon! We can do better! ☹️ https://t.co/dHxTevjhpx [See also #139536]

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 … [more]

Hi @GlasgowCC any chance we can have some enforcement on the corkerhill road cycle path. @UrbanistTOC do you know any others I could tag in this? https://t.co/bnVPgmHFqj

This is why we need #ProtectionNotPaint This new cycle lane was painted yesterday but today there are 7 cars parked on it. Hopefully wands will be added like at the new cycle lane to #RoyalInfirmaryOfEdinburgh @edinhelp @NHS_Lothian to … [more]

This is my lane Location: Milwaukie (Oregon, United States)

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

Whoever designed this does not cycle! The cycle lane being used as a car park goes is obstructed by a kerb at the toucan crossing over to Morrison's supermarket and retail park.

The cycle lanes have pretty much vanished from Robroyston Gate.

The cycle lanes painted when the business park was first built have all but disappeared from the road. Not that they made much sense.

Cycle markings through the junction onto Derek Dooley Way, where almost all traffic, in both lanes, turns right.

'Narrow Lanes Ahead - Give cyclists room'. Having looked at Streetview, I think the direction sign for 'city centre' refers to using the toucan crossings across Derek Dooley Way to get to Johnson Street. But if I was arriving here for the … [more]

I wonder if the @PoliceScotland “safety camera” van beside their offices at Shawfield today can see the road for all those cars parked on double yellow lines & across a cycle lane? And whose cars might they be..? Let me guess. … [more]

Pavement hopping cycle infrastructure coming into Bingley town centre.

An unusual sign for a line-segregated footway. The cycle route crosses four crossings to get to Wakefield Road... #110661 Some of the toucan crossings do not have call boxes on both the left and right hand sides of the crossing.
