Charles Street where double yellow lines have been introduced on one side of the road, and resident parking bays on the other. This is an improved environment now for pedestrians (who have both footways cleared in principle) and cycling. Co ... [more]

New second yellow line on Riverside should make bridge and Tesco junctions easier by removing parking

The new-ish properties on the right were built at the bottom of the long gardens of houses on Histon Road. They were restricted to single storey, but have a basement. They were not granted any rights to use the local residents' parking s ... [more]

Five sheffield stands for parking ten bikes in one car storage space. Shame the rest of the town is such a horrible place to cycle as evidenced by the hoardings behind, see #50412.

Love new streetscape on Derbyshire Street off Bethnal Green Rd: 12 bike parking, no car parking. Needs to be two-way for bikes http://t.co/TjuJ5ehQr3 [CycleStreets Editor's note: there was previously car-parking here. Rare example of rem ... [more]

Concrete humps within these motor vehicle storage spaces to stop vehicles overhanging the footway. However I realise they can be a bit of a trip hazard for people crossing vacant spaces on foot! See also #50932.

In this motor vehicle storage area the spaces have concrete lumps which are used to stop the vehicles overhanging the footway. However I realise they can be a bit of a trip hazard for people crossing vacant spaces on foot! See #50935.

No problem with taking away car parking spaces occasionally sometimes it seems, but never to make permanent cycling space.

Area with marked parking zones, works much better than the Dings Home Zone (though there is more space here). Note that yellow hashing lines have been removed as these changed the balance of subtle markings.

"Listen to your heart (... I don't know where you're going ...)" plays to the parked vehicles in this undeground car storage facility in Arras, northern France. It feels strange the first time, but perhaps it is to provide reassurance to ... [more]

Car parking in the middle of the street rather than one side - better for walkers

A very wide boulevard has been largely closed to traffic in Valence - cycling permitted.

Amazing! Someone has stopped to unload on Bateman Street without blocking the contraflow cycle lane.

Parking bay provided on other side of hybrid cycle lane. (Potential dooring zone issue but the cycle lane is wide.)

Cambio Car Sharing Station in Oldenburg. It is located underneath a giant raised motorway (bridge), at one km from the edge of the pedestrianised the city centre, between the centre and the University.

Specific parking bays off the carriageway in a new development, meaning that cyclists do not have to veer round parked vehicles.

The driver of this van is to be commended for her/his thoughtfulness in not blocking the cycleway whilst undertaking these works.

The car parking bay on the left is to become one of Cambridge's first locations for Car Club cars. (Cycle parking also needed in the area.)

The car parking bay on the right is to become one of Cambridge's first locations for Car Club cars.
