[Image taken 25.1.23] Outside St Luke's church, Burton Stone Lane, junction wiith Shipton Street, York. Centreline tarmac damage at a road narrowing. That infra requires people on cycles to move out into the carriageway. Cyclists ought to … [more]

The most dangerous thing about cycling has to be an abrupt end to a cycle lane where you literally have nowhere to go except up on a high curb. This is on Thomas Hynes Road, Newcastle. Imagine if a car lane ended like that! @GalwayCycling … [more]

Hinckley, home of the pinch-point.

A faded cycle lane on Broomfield Road, at a pinch-point. It also leads into a chain of potholes at the bus stop.

Here in London the @MetCC are unable to prosecute this sort of thing because of the paint line. My response is then to ride right of that paint line because this is negligent and dangerous infrastructure by @LBRUT. [Dangerously narrow … [more]

Poor drainage on Huntingdon Road. Reported at: reference: 00354582 Update: I was a bit surprised to get a reply from them on 2 June 2021 (i.e. more than five months later) to say: "We are … [more]

Instead of slowing as intended drivers pass, going into the hatching before and after the pinch-point, and late braking.

Pinch points along this cliff road near Felixstowe

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

Two cheers for @LeicsCountyHall for removing this pedestrian refuge on the A47 at the outskirts of LFE. Was a real sphincter-tightener as it marked change from NSL to 40. Complained years back, but basically told to man up! So, thanks, but … [more]

Dangerous pinch-points for cycling in Great Chesterford. I had a very nasty experience riding along here sometime around the year 2009. Approaching the pinch point I decided to take the lane to make sure the lorry behind me was not going … [more]

A cyclist riding in the CENTRE OF THE LANE isn’t trying to get in a driver's way – they’re showing it’s NOT SAFE TO OVERTAKE at that point. #OperationClosePass is working to help drivers and cyclists to better understand each other and … [more]

Shared use joins carriageway at a short advisory cycle-lane ahead of a pinch point.

So @WhittlesfordPC third "traffic calming" measure has no attempt at cycle safety lane. What a joke. If it weren't an accident trap. @CambsCC @camcycle @Chisholm4Trail

@mark_birdy @UKCycleChat @MetCC Holy shit! Close pass, main tweet:

The HArTT cycle route turns left from Sandy Loan onto Polmont Road, then turns right onto a path (at the sign post) where there isn't even a dropped kerb! No help crossing this busy road. See #103068 for the view in the other direction. I … [more]

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, … [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

The main road around Falkirk town centre doesn't look very cycle-friendly.

Pinch-point traffic-calming on North Road, Bellshill. The dropped kerbs don't appear to have been thought through to create a half decent crossing for pedestrians.

What the what? (Simon's note: This is the first time I found the location via Mapillary rather … [more]

A new pinch-point in Oswald St to look out for cycling, which is also successful in trapping buses in the bus stop. And useless Advance Stop Line.

Trinity Road Bollards, and hatching and pinch points seem popular in this area.

Traffic calming by pinch-point and restrictions on through traffic in Front Street.

Cyclists wisely taking the lane at a pinch point.

Priority facing the chicane. This is a 60 mph road and there is no footway here. On a bike coming through here how can I trust that oncoming traffic will give me right of way at this pinch point? They have to make a judgment to wait for me … [more]

Road widened for the central island - rather defeating the whole point of these things which I think are presumably to regulate the speed.

This is a perfect example of a road-narrowing to slow down motor traffic that allows easy and safe passage for cycle users.

Cars accelerate to overtake in a race to get to the pinch point first.
