Cyclists exempt from the covid-19 road closure on Winwick Street. Unfortunately the sign at the other end doesnt mention cyclists #137723

Temporary closure for Friday prayers at a mosque in Namangan, Uzbekistan

The road is closed to motor traffic for construction of new town Northstowe but an attendant controls the construction vehicles to allow cyclists (and horses and pedestrians) to pass through the works.

The town of Menton is now closing the seafront promenade to motor traffic on weeekend evenings (including Friday) - far busier and more popular than this photo indicates. Now to make it permanent!

Cycling Around The Ashton Avenue Bridge Diversion

National Grid have laid a diversion for the NCN62 Trans Pennine Trail from here to Banky Lane next to Ashton on Mersey RUFC. The laid path and signs are better than the main path. https://twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/723992394983718912

One block of the main street closed for the town fair in Viseu de Sus.

Road closed for street party - one cyclist came through, but the parallel street is fine.

During the construction of a new road bridge over the Lune the Lune Cycle Path (part of the Sustrans Way of the Roses) had to be diverted. I was expecting a botch-up but we got this convenient well constructed diversion which will be in use ... [more]

Well-signed diversion (unlike when the Lammas Land road was closed last year)

This "Cycle Land Closed; cyclists merging from the Left" temporary road sign is much better than the often used "Cyclists Dismount", although the text could do with being bigger.

Car park closed for construction work but through route maintained for bikes and walkers. This seems to be common wherever roadworks or other construction occurs in the city.

The Olympic authorities (or maybe Royal Parks) have got the right idea for temporary road closures. No through motor traffic here for a month, but the pavement has been converted to a cycleway.

Barrier for road closure during the hours children are arriving at and leaving school in central Avignon - no obstruction to cyclists.

Weekend road closure in central Avignon

Temporary traffic arrangements don't _have_ to ignore the needs of cyclists. This setup cleanly allows cyclists to bypass the restrictions that need to be applied to cyclists. The sign says "cyclists use bypass lane" (sorry about the qua ... [more]

Signs for diverted cycle route at the former Bescano station

Well done to these considerate contractors: These contractors who were repairing the frost-damaged border between bus lane and main carriageway had deliberately avoided obstructing the cycle lane. If only more would do this. Normally when r ... [more]

Alongside the road at this point is a service road which provides one way access only to houses for residents with cars and a two way through route for everyone by bike. The service road is being resurfaced and so cyclists are provided w ... [more]
