Bollards with reflective strips replace the tight chicane barriers that were there before #84832

Woolson New Cut greenway. New tarmac surface, but not really wide enough.

Woolson New Cut greenway

This cycleway meets another cycleway at a T junction - so why the "END OF CYCLE ROUTE" sign and incorrect tactile paving?

Recently constructed junction on one of Warrington's signed cycle routes. Unfortunately, cyclists do not seem to have been considered in the design. It is not possible to ride the line of the route (towards Hall Street #84869) and there is … [more]

Signed cycle route from Woolston arrives in central Warrington here (see the sign in the background #83868). The new junction arrangement fails to allow for cyclists to turn right here heading towards Central Station.

chicane barrier - a bit too tight.

Route sign directs cyclists heading towards Padgate and Birchwood along a narrow, poorly surfaced track #84835 to cross the A57 (a busy dual carriageway) at a point where there are no crossing facilities #84836. It would be much safer and … [more]

Warrington Waters Greenway - tarmac surface is being encroached by vegetation

Loose gravel surface - not ideal for cycling
