Upper Thames Street, wait here to let motor traffic turn into Puddle Dock

NOTE: Later image of this junction that illustrates the seeming problem of timings and design that seem to put crossing users: cyclist and pedestrians, but also road users, at risk: #186158. [Image taken 8.9.22] Bootham, York. Part of the … [more]

[Image taken 18.7.22] Terry Avenue, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] All those signs, the lights... This is where motorists rule. All images Terry Ave today: #184906 and links.

Junction 7 has 12 toucan crossings . 11 have green phases synchronised to the junction phases. This is the only crossing that does not have a green phase . Is this dangerous especially when sun glare/reflections are a hazard ? People will … [more]

These traffic lights and at Hills Road in the distance are to be controlled by AI which will apparently distinguish different types of road user - perhaps even cyclists? Cambridge Independent article: … [more]

Crossing of the dual carriageway in Winchester.

Cycle route straight on.

A bridge in Huddersfield.

Advance Stop Line

Woodgate Valley Country Park - exit to West Boulevard Location: , Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom) The crossing here leads onto the Bourn Brook Walkway (Wentworth Way Open Space or as the Bournvale Walk). It then leads onto … [more]

The traffic lights at this junction do not detect cycles approaching from Chelsfield Grove onto Maudeth Rd West - reported to GMUTC. Also when the pedestrian lights are green to cross Mauldeth Rd West this would be an ideal and safe … [more]

Toucan crossing links shared use paths; also on-road cycle lanes on Reading Road Location: , Winnersh (England, United Kingdom) The A329 between Showcase Roundabout and Woodward Close consists of off-road shared use paths and on-road … [more]

Cambridge Castle Hill Junction

Cambridge Castle Hill Junction

Signed cycle route between Renfrewshire House and NCN7, crossing Causeyside Street.

The Toucan crossing linking Viables Industrial Estate with Hatch Warren Way cycle path Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom) This Toucan crossing, in common with others in Basingstoke, is passive. In rush hour, you can be … [more]

No Entry except trams and cycles, straight ahead into Exchange Square. The painted cycle lane appears to encourage cyclists to risk left hooks rather than cycling closer to the tramlines. The road-width decreases suddenly just behind the … [more]

No Left Turn except cycles, near Exchange Square (see also #72729).

A facility has been provided to allow cyclists to head straight up Water Street for a bit, to avoid the gyratory at Chapel Street.

Cycles allowed to make right turn outside Oxford Road station into Whitworth Street West (and thus access Oxford Street), when other vehicles restricted to left turn only.

This narrow corner is going to be rebuilt as part of Glasgow City Council's cycle route along the south bank of the River Clyde. Update at #83027.

Blacked-out cycle path markings on the footway around the signalised roundabout. So is it still available for cycle use? There are no signs here to say it is.

Nothing but Advance Stop Lines on Cathcart Road.

A contraflow cycle lane on Cleland Street, but not Bedford Lane across the junction.

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. [Updated in #166710.]

The junction of Shields Road and Scotland Street, where the cycle track becomes a shared-use section around the corner to #70770. Anyone wanting to go in a different direction has to use the toucan crossings.

I'm assuming this facility has been put in so cyclists going to Park Road can bypass the traffic lights by proceeding into Southgate (see #70936), but if they have to dismount, what's the point? They can bypass the lights by dismounting … [more]

The cycleway turns left via a wider shared-use footway section. For everywhere else, there is a multi-stage toucan crossing to the opposite side of the road (where the lady in hi-vis is waiting) for the Shields Road cycle track northwards, … [more]

The segregated cycleway is replaced by a shared-use footway opposite the Carnoustie Street junction. A dropped kerb has been provided, presumably for any cyclist joining the route from Carnoustie Street.

So has the cycle route suddenly gone back onto the road? Without warning (or space) a cycle lane appears in the road, carefully painting around a pothole, and does the straight ahead arrow mean the route is going straight on at the … [more]

Hardly an 8-80 type of environment on NCN74 on the A724. Paint with no consideration for creating space for cycling.

The instruction is clear that the route transfers from the footway to the carriageway at the junction ahead, but drivers are driving their vehicles like the cycle lane beyond the junction isn't there.

The cycle route joins the A724, at a signalised roundabout. An Advance Stop Line has been provided, nothing else. From the signs further along the road, it appears cyclists are meant to join the footway at the far side of this junction (at … [more]

The shared-use cycleway just ends like this. How are you meant to return to the road?

The traffic signals on Candleriggs don't exempt cycles from their mandatory left and right turns, even though King Street ahead has a contraflow cycle lane. Location: Candleriggs, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Minimal width pedestrian crossing across dual carriageway retail park access, without pedestrian/cycle signals.

The crossing across Hill Lane from Southampton Common into Bellemoor Road is incorporated in the traffic signals at the junction.

Exceedingly narrow cycle lanes have been provided over the bridge, and the "Beware of oncoming cyclists" sign implies that the traffic signals don't detect when cyclists are still on the bridge before signalling traffic in the other … [more]

A latecomer riding through the junction, although Mr Motorist alongside me is somewhat far forward for red and amber! The two-stage right turn waiting areas can be seen in the junction. Ahead are the mandatory cycle lanes on Central … [more]

The waiting area for the two-stage right turn at the junction at the end of the Itchen Bridge.

Approaching Itchen Bridge, at the junction with the 2-stage right turn markings. Note the cyclist using the pedestrian crossing at the far side of the junction. Although signs show that right turns are banned from this direction, there are … [more]

Roadspace on Ashley Terrace

Everyone waiting while motor traffic is signalled through.

Signage for Liverpool Radial Route 3 on Norton Street. No cycle facilities other than an Advance Stop Line. Again, the motorist sign is far bigger than the cycle sign.

Hemmed in and waiting again at the umpteenth red on Glasgow's segregated cycling #infrastructure #csconf14

Dismount here for the railway station, and definitely don't cycle up the wide ramp.

The junction of the Edinburgh Family Network route 8 and the path to Saughton tram stop. The white line on the main path has been erased for a short section. The toucan crossing across Saughton Road is arranged somewhat better than at … [more]

York Place beside the tram terminus

There is a cycle path across the centre of the Cameron Toll roundabout

No pedestrian phases at the signalised Sheriffhall Roundabout on the Edinburgh City Bypass, but double traffic signals for motorists! An extremely hostile environment for cyclists and pedestrians.

Traffic on Princes Street, and "(Cyclists) Caution Tram Tracks" sign hidden behind traffic signal head.

Heavily louvred traffic signals.

The traffic lights for the cycleway on Barton Road are full size lights - just like for the motor vehicles. The pair of lights on the left of this picture are very heavily louvred to reduce the possibility of motor vehicles mistaking them. … [more]

The shared-use footway on this side of Aikenhead Road ends here, but without anything to tell users such as an End of Route sign, or even toucan crossings to assist in rejoining the carriageway at this fairly hostile road junction. Also, … [more]

Needlessly narrow shared-use footway on Haggs Road at side road crossing. The pedestrian guard rails have all been covered with banners, meaning small children will be completely hidden from the view of drivers. The vertical bars in the … [more]

The Haggs Road shared-use footway crosses a side road at traffic signals, without pedestrian/cycle signal heads.

Junction layout at A59 junction. The Guild Wheel is the name of the riverside path.

Unrestrained car parking at traffic signals

The lack of a stopline across the cycle lane I guess means cyclists going to the cycle track can pass on red. The sharp corner could have been avoided by taking a cycle track passed the other side of the signal post and such ambiguity would … [more]

The cycle route leaves the parallel road to run alongside the A59 on a cycle track.

An Advance Stop Line on the A59. NCN62 turns left here, but rejoins the A59 further along.

A pedestrian crossing with countdown to green man phase at busy city centre corner

Pedestrian countdown to green man phase, starting from 35 secounds, at busy city centre pedestrian crossing (but see photo #53706)

Of course, it's always cyclists that run red lights! Not.

The stop line for the traffic signals is in the foreground, but there is a "Wait Here" marking on the pedestrian crossing. UPDATE: #62829 shows the "Wait Here" has been removed, and the reason why.

Oldenburg traffic light - looks like it has got bolts half way up that presumably can be undone for the thing to swing back off the road for maintenance.

An Oldenburg traffic officer explains that this push-button is a remote control that activates the nearby pedestrian crossing on the main road.

Advance Stop Line at the A70/A73 junction at Hyndford Bridge (at end of cycle track seen in #49697), and cycle route sign for Biggar for cyclists coming from Lanark. If turning left, note that the traffic signals will change for traffic … [more]

G4S Security van blocking cycle track in Birmingham outside Tesco Location: Chinatown, Birmingham (England, United Kingdom) Also parking over double yellow lines.

First, engage brain Location: Beverley (England, United Kingdom) I'm not sure what's more terrifying: that somebody thought this sign might be needed, or that this sign might actually be needed. Thinking further, the sign actually … [more]

There's nothing to say old route of NCN 75 is on footway, so must assume it is on the road under narrow railway bridge. (See also #43939 and #43940)
