North Moss Lane

A483 Llandrindod Wells

Are these warning signs really consistent with a 40mph limit as can be seen in the distance. I suppose a highway engineer would say “…it’s designed as a 40mph road…” and stare through you defocussed.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road approaching the Broomfield Road junction. Note that the cycle traffic signals are green at the same time as traffic is exiting Broomfield Road. The cycle lights were green during both general tr ... [more]

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

The end of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. The cycle route continues around the corner to the right.

The build up of mud around the bus boarder after flooding, such as seen in #169649.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

The Garscube Road cycle track at the entrance to the Oakbank Trading Estate. There is a flashing LED cycle sign, but this one didn't light up, unlike one further south.

The Garscube Road cycleway still unopened at Possil Road. See update at #171177.

The meeting point of Macfarlane Road and Milngavie Road, which includes a shared footway link between the northern part of Macfarlane Road and Killermont Road. On the right, a busy road to Canniesburn Toll.

The northbound South City Way cycle track is now operating at the Cumberland Street junction, but the southbound is closed off awaiting the installation of the two-way cycle track in Gorbals Street. The junction is marked as being for "a ... [more]

The connection from Calder Street into the South City Way on Victoria Road. See also #167147.

The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road. Note how the right hand side of the cycle track gets narrower over the width of the road crossing. The markings should guide cyclists away from this area, where the kerb has upstand as the ra ... [more]

The South City Way taking shape at the transition between two-way and one-way cycle tracks at the north end of Pollokshaws Road. I'm not convinced the layout will be used as the designer intended. Surprisingly, no use has been made of th ... [more]

The South City Way taking shape at the Cumberland Street junction.

The Howard Street contraflow cycle lane with orca protection. The traffic island here has been made less obstructive too.

A bus stop boarder followed by a sudden swerve around a marked parking bay.

An old road repurposed as a cycleway.

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

The Alderman Road cycle lane ends by veering into a signed but not marked shared footpath across to Kelso Street.

Clearly fed up locals

[Image taken 16.2.21] York, Monks Cross retail park has a bi-directional cycle route around the perimeter. Pedestrian routes 'trickle' from the car parking areas to the retail outlets and must cross the cycle route. Some pedestrian routes a ... [more]

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]

Who has priority? I really dislike the ambiguity at this *brand new* side road crossing in Beeston! https://t.co/UCNwpUqlI2

A Table Top Crossing. Oxstalls Campus, University of Gloucestershire.

Narrow shared-used path to Pembroke Dock

Shared Use Bicycle Path with a Slow for a side street. The design is poor as the traffic on the side street should be traffic calmed and slow for the Bicycle.

Manchester Salford bridge over River Irwell Trinity Way. A sensible way to slow down cycles. Bollards set at at least 2m apart with SLOW sign on approach both sides. Compare this with most other attempts some of which exclude all but the mo ... [more]

Latham Road, Cambridge

The path parallel to Whitemoss Avenue and then Churchill Avenue, approaching the underpass beneath Whitemoss Avenue.

The barriers that caused so much trouble (see #113028) were taken down this morning!

Going uphill

'No Cycling', 'Slow' and 'Beware of Pedestrians' at a cluttered corner on the Ashton Canal. Not built for cycling, so important that the road network is adapted instead.

Raised crossing where NCN756 and Piccadilly Street meet.

A warning to motorists to look out for walkers and cyclists when going over the blind summit approaching Drumburgh.

A tiny warning for motorists to slow for the blind summit and look out for walkers and cyclists.

Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

Slow for a sodding gate post? Surely priority signs like those on the adjacent road would be more appropriate.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Garriochmill Road access to the Kelvin Walkway. A short path has been laid around the back of the work compound to maintain pedestrian and cycle access.

Croyde

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

I'm hoping this newly marked cycle path alongside Whitemoss Avenue will be widened once the work behind the hoardings has been finished.

'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

Cycle parking at the top of the steep bit of the hill, saves having to pedal back up if the bike is already at the top. But some proper stands at the shopping centre entrance would be better.

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

Broken bollards and broken speed cushions on Netherton Road.

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

SLOW for narrow section of new cycle lane past floating bus stop

The end of the Ravenscraig cycleway and the provision at the A723/B7066 roundabout. Cyclists to merge onto the road, with sliplanes provided both sides. Hopefully this will be rectified when the road is dualled. A new footway/cycleway is pr ... [more]

The Ravenscraig cycleway joins the cycling provision at the A723/B7066 roundabout. There is no provision beyond the roundabout in any direction, so probably best to avoid the A723 northwards.

I don't think anyone will notice this repair...

The Ravenscraig cycleway at the northern crossing of Plantation Road, including provision for those going straight ahead and joining the carriageway.

An 'End of Route' sign when the route clearly continues along New Craig Road. The route from here northwards uses the correct flat-topped tactiles and not the corduroy ones used across the junction southwards.

The most people I saw all day on bikes.

The sign and artwork outside the Ravenscraig sports centre.

The Ravenscraig cycleway outside the sports centre. The entrance is at the far end of the path, then double back to get to the cycle parking.

The cycleway through Ravenscraig crosses the access road to the sports centre. Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles are used on this section, rather than the correct flat-topped 'cycleway' type, and placed so close to the crossing that people on bike ... [more]

End of the line-segregated cycleway through Ravenscraig. Why doesn't it continue through to Craigneuk St?

South Lanarkshire Council is excelling itself here, I think.

Not good for cycling, not good for bussing.

The solution to the Whistleberry gap was not to build a ramp to the steps next to the A725, but to sign the existing footway as a cycleway, with no widening at bus stops, just markings.

A bus stop bypass on Paisley Road cycletrack.

South Lanarkshire Council's interpretation of a bus stop bypass, with no continuous footway so all pedestrians expected to walk via the bus stop island. The bus stop itself is in a layby so buses may get delayed waiting to leave.
