The new road layout at the junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive does not include a connection to the new cycleway. The speed of some of the traffic on the new road seemed quite high.

Warning of pedestrians - presumably walking along the motorway ahead.

Speed bumps on the River Elbe cycleway / Elberadweg, (approximate location), to slow local four-wheel traffic and pushing cyclists into the centre.

Cliff Road where the local route no 15 (aka the Viking Cycle route) goes through a private estate.

Guided buses do not always respect 30mph speed limit through crossing. First bus will be stopped by red light, but second bus sometimes charges through. This is a busy and complex junction with people coming from all directions, and cycl ... [more]

30mph speed limit not always respected by buses through crossing ahead

Bizarre changing of a speed limit in a quiet residential area. All the residential roads here have 20mph now as standard, except the one heading off to the left here. I suspect it might be because it's a private road.

A very useful ramp. This ramp does its job of slowing down motor vehicles. But its a rare species these days as 'vertical speed measures' like this are now out of favour by highway authorities. New ones have to be much flatter, to reduce no ... [more]

Residents live in fear of traffic passing thru their village at lethal speeds - yet there's no legal powers to do anything about it ... until someone actually gets killed.

Anything goes on the Pollokshaws Road shared-use footway. A speed camera blocking one half of the available space.

Lots of signs at the end of Wettenhall Road - oh and some bikes parked on the footway.

New much flatter speed bump. In fact this is so flat you barely notice - much better for bikes than the older models along here.

Speed bump in Catharine Street. Their steep edges are perfect for ejecting the contents of bicycle baskets into the road - for the uninitiated.

Ekin Road - speed humps

See clip at http://youtu.be/Btp3yD0ZjpM This is far too close, well below the standards expected in the highway code, especially rules 213 and 163, which say the car should be on the other side of the central line. And given there is a c ... [more]

A raised speed table would have been better, but a flush kerb and a speed bump to slow cars at the blind corner are an improvement over what was on the approved plans (as #16990). See #19487 and #19486.

Had a raised speed table been installed, pedestrians on the opposite side (natural line to the reception of the care home) would have received a better deal... Ref #19486 and #19487.

After some campaigning a dropped kerb away from the blind spot has been installed (see also #19486, close #19492 and a kerb for pedestrians #19491). A speed bump has also been added at the entrance / blind spot. The hedge has been trimmed a ... [more]
