Oncoming Vehicle, almost constant parking either side, too narrow to pass, not kid friendly

Van parked on the pavement blocking visibility of junction with Muriel Road

Any wonder that we struggle to keep the public behaving correctly on road when we have this LK68 CMV example. Legislation says emergency services can stop here ONLY in the event of an actual emergency. Note roadspace on side street, ... [more]

And yet more illegal positioning this time by A few people under specific circumstances are allowed to stop or park in a cyclepath. Scaffolders are not. And there is an easy safer opt ... [more]

Next day, same issue, almost certainly same people and same vehicle. A few people under specific circumstances are allowed to stop or park in a cyclepath. Scaffolders are not. And there is an easy legal option ... [more]

This is where the driver of this van and trailer decided to stop and have a phone call. Completely blocking the cyclepath and pavement. I had to stop and ask, then shout "hello" as he wasn't paying any attention to other traffic. Why not st ... [more]

Yet another development with spaces for cars but not bikes.

Yet another development with acres of space to manoeuvre and store cars, and no visible cycle facilities at all.

Junction on Ayers End Lane

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

Driver of SK67 UJZ speeds in wrong lane over Mill Rd bridge. Close passing 2 riders and driving at another. #Cambridge @camcycle @roxyfromoz @dave4labour @sargemike @anna4labour

Driver of 629 FLO completely fails to drive properly and distance properly on Devonshire Road. When pointed out, they haven't got a clue what they've done wrong.

You had thought that people would work out to give space in this difficult time. Not here though. Here's @jrhoardingltd illegally blocking the cycle access across Newmarket Rd. Driving into this site through here has been expressly forbidd ... [more]

Helensburgh Cycles, at 5 West Clyde Street.

The footbridge across the railway in #113719 leads to the busy Eaglesham Road and there is no pedestrian crossing to help people get to either the bus stop or Hairmyres Hospital a short distance away.

@IanGManning @camcycle Any idea how we can deal with this blatant illegal parking? It's not isolated, it's parked up here a lot.

A simple and unobstructed crossing at Morton Avenue.

The Hurlet junction is arranged for the convenience of motorists at the expense of all other road users.

No cycle facilities on the busy Grahamston Road, outside Dykebar Hospital.

Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]

Signpost access to walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Walkers and cyclists can cross the river Bollin at the bottom of the lane. I will let one of the horse riders comment if they can get over.

This is where the surfaced section ends. You can turn and go beside the wood or through the wood onto the transPennine trail.

Bridgewater Way looking towards Seamons Road Bridge

Bridgewater Way and the canal looking towards Seamons Road Bridge.

Link from Seamons Road Bridge down to Bridgewater Way resurfaced May 2019. Push button not yet moved so no way anyone disabled can come up the ramp and push the button to go over the bridge.

Cycling on Blackbog Road, which is part of a series of quiet country roads between Palacerigg and Moodiesburn.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

Narrow road requiring dismount or finding passing place when meeting a motor vehicle.

The old road under the old railway bridge has been closed to motor vehicles, but remains open to cycling and walking into the Kinneil Estate.

An abandoned section of old road at Kinneil, with no connecting path to the footway on the new road, although it is not too difficult to walk across the grass.

Road from the M1 to Milton Keynes

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

Tregolls Road looking outbound in the snow

The approach at Inchwood Road to the M80 footbridge over to Kirk Place is somewhat messy.

Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 does not go up this busy road. I checked at the Balloch Roundabout and there were no further signs.

According to my map from the council, the Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns left here then first right, rather than using the (rather ugly) caged crossing and the direct path to Craiglinn. But no signs.

A rough transition to the road at Kirk Place, but a barrier to ensure you don't accidentally cycle down the steps.

The Old Military Road Location: , Drumsleet (Scotland, United Kingdom) NCN 7

First time through this way for a little while. As usual, an illegally stopped vehicle, with a nearby legal space. Looks like they've been here awhile and are not leaving soon. I know you've worked hard on this @IanGManning, what more can w ... [more]

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

Kenzies coach driver parks up illegally in Hills Road cyclelane whilst getting coffee. An increasingly popular stopping place. @LibralLady

That Advance Stop Line is sure encouraging people to cycle!

Avant garde railing at Pollock Avenue road crossing. The traffic here is fast, but no signalised crossing has been provided. The path ahead is on the course of an old railway line to Peacock Cross.

Road worker completely blocks cyclepath. Note that these people are allowed to work in cycle infra. However, they do need to indicate that it's closed and/or indicate a way round. There is a way, about 500m back from here. A sign there woul ... [more]

The irony of a "Cyclists, pass with care" notice on a bus driving in the cyclelane.

It would be useful to have a dropped kerb on the opposite side of the divider, or better still a proper signalised crossing, to allow easier access between this side road of Kirkintilloch Road and Meadowburn. (The ASDA superstore is off to ... [more]

Illegal stopping in cyclelane from @Richmondscoach.

Another example of misuse of the Hills Road cyclelane. And at a time when lots of children are likely riding from their school.

The key to this map says blue dashed lines are "Signed primary network separate from traffic". So why are developers putting up no entry signs as per

Another example of how this junction design needs to be revisited. And why the whole of this place stinks of car fumes. The pollution here is so bad it utterly stinks!

These "No Entry" signs appeared whilst Wilton Terrace was being demolished and there was restricted access at the other end. However, that's long over and there's plenty of space now. So are these signs still up to dissuade people cycli ... [more]

Signpost at western end of Carter cycle bridge.

Approaching Devonshire Road from Carter cycle bridge. Two concrete bollards have been removed and new, white, ones added with clear markings, instead.

New bollard and white paint at western end of the Carter cycle bridge.

Obstruction still to be removed from the western end of the Carter Bridge approach at Devonshire Road. New bollards and markings are an improvement.

New bollards at approach to Carter cycle bridge from Devonshire Road. But an obstruction still needs removing.

Cyclist strapping a new forty inch TV to their bike at the re-opening of Aldi on Histon Road in Cambridge.

A gate narrower than the road, enabling cycles to enter/exit the Walks from the south easily. Very simple yet underrated infrastructure.

Halfway crossing the road. Transition from the road to the cyclepath and back is borderless. The gutter has been flattened out to make sure comfort for cyclists is as high as possible when crossing the road. Comfort adds to safety.

Cyclist crossing on the redesigned crossroads

Improved crossing for cyclists by making a protected waiting area halfway the road. Crossing goes faster and safer than before.
