The path to Bingley station crosses the entrance to the Aldi car park.

The path from the Waterloo Road car park ends at the Aldi car park, but another path connects across to Ferncliffe Road. Hazard tactiles have been used in place of cycleway tactiles.

Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles used in place of 'cycleway' tactiles on NCN 7/10/72 on Castle Way. These caught my tyre slightly as I was cycling over them. Some of the paving slabs along here were a bit uneven too.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. ... [more]

As seen in #103422, the dropped kerb on the Glenburn Road toucan crossing does not cover the full width of the tactiles.

At toucan crossing across Glenburn Road, the dropped kerb covers only about half the width of the tactiles. See close-up view at #103423.

The Wester Way ends at Westerhill Road and awaits the building of the next phase of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, and a new path alongside the railway to Lenzie. Corduroy tactiles have been provided (not cycleway tactiles) even though th ... [more]

@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. https://t.co/uMC0StC ... [more]

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

The end of the on-road cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, but where next? The fresh dropped kerb across the junction suggests that it is onto the existing footway. And another corner for collecting detritus. UPDATE: A direction sign for a qu ... [more]

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

The M8 cyclepath crossing the A8 sliproad and A752 at grade. No tactiles at this side.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

The inevitable result of placing a barrier in the way of the path and not diverting the path directly to the forced crossing point - a worn path across the grass. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that fence panel not meant to be inst ... [more]

A mix of 'hazard' (on the pedestrian side) and 'cycleway' tactile paving slabs. They should all be the latter variety. The orientation is correct.

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]

The toucan crossing signal boxes are positioned so they face away from approaching users.

The designer of this has obviously been watching too many Danny MacAskill videos! Footway/cycleway crossing M74 off-ramp.

The Paisley Road protected cycletrack merges into a shared footway around the corner. The diagonal crossing is aligned for those going up and down West St, but has a signal facing anyone coming from Paisley Road, just in case someone wants ... [more]

A nice replacement bridge over the River Colne, but a pity about the tactiles being the wrong type. The sign reads "Please give way to pedestrians on bridge".

Junction crossing newly converted to toucan crossing, including some resurfacing and tactiles, but no dropped kerb for access to Springburn Way! This is meant to be a new cycle route!

The new section of cycleway along Clyde Place.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place.

The Water Street 2-way cycle track.

Can I cycle or do I need to discount? @SuffolkSpokes anglia retail park http://t.co/S9ciwEZiFf

A bus stop on the shared-use footway into Chester-le-Street.

Hopefully the yellow paint marks indicate that bollards are to be installed and the 'No Entry' signs taken down. The tactiles could be corrected and the electrical cabinet moved at the same time.

Incorrect tactiles used on Shields Road at the point where the cycle track ends onto a shared-use footway at the junction with St Andrew's Road, and some upstand on part of the dropped kerb.

A floating bus stop on Shields Road, with incorrect tactiles and a metal strip in place of the kerb that will be slippery when wet. Plus an unnecessary and annoying wiggle in the track beyond the bus stop.

A continuous footway and a painted cycle lane on Main Street, but in poor condition.

Path Crossing Path

An 'End of Route' sign where clearly the cycle route continues across the other side of the road, and no dropped kerb on one side of the crossing. Broken tactiles becoming a trip hazard.

Cycleway alongside West Quay Road.

Car parking on an already poor quality shared use footway along The Avenue.

Terrible and narrow painted shared use footway along The Avenue in Southampton. But no problem fitting in an extra lane for motor vehicles.

Shared-use path crossing road next to roundabout.

Separate paths for cycling and walking alongside Long Lane, linking into a parallel service road.

Unusually fine tactiles on cyclepath past retail park.

The Millburn Active Travel Route crossing Victoria Drive. The visibility of crossing traffic is somewhat poor westbound.

Approaching the end of the shared-use footway, onto the carriageway for Portballintrae, or onto the railway path for Giants Causeway.

A change back to unsegregated shared use from line segregation. Painting the Give Way triangle on top of the tactile matting reduces its effectiveness.

Rubber tactiles peeling off shared footway

A brand new shared-use footway/cycleway at the M74 motorway junction, already in a very poor state of repair!

Misleading tactiles and more posts in the shared-use footway on Polmadie Road, at the M74 motorway junction.

New tactiles and non-flush dropped kerbs, but poor road surface at gateway on Dumbreck Road shared-use footway.

Line-separated shared use footway along Marine Drive into Southport

So if the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign is at the end of one green bit, can you remount at the start of the next green bit the other side of the tactiles?

The tramway goes over a flyover but the cycleway goes through an obstacle course at road crossing, to improve riders' skills presumably! UPDATE: See #56279 - now work has finished they've replaced the yellow bollard with a thinner black ... [more]

Shared-use footway with tactiles, next to closed-off road. Can cyclists not be trusted to cycle safely on the road in this low-traffic environment?

Segregated footway/cycleway on NCN14 Western Approach, South Shields

Cycle path to Pallion next to South Hylton station, with side paths signed as 'No Cycling'.

Confused tactiles on corner of New Rutherglen Road and Polmadie Road

High kerb with tactiles at road crossing on cycle route through Silverburn Shopping Centre car park. Unbelievable!
