Photo listing : cycleways (problem)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This is where the surfaced section ends. You can turn and go beside the wood or through the wood onto the transPennine trail.

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, northern section. Verge and gravel infill by cyclepath - no problem to increase path width!

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, central section. Fence protects rock cages supporting difference in levels of up to about 1.5m. This would need to be stabilised before the path could be widened about 1.5m to boundary fenc ... [more]

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, southern section. About 1.5m space available to increase width of cycleway to boundary fence.

Busway cyclepath looking north from corner of Clare College sports ground and along University Press frontage. Plenty of room to widen cycleway.

Busway cyclepath looking north at the corner of Clare College sports ground. A culvert inhibits easy widening of the cyclepath at this point.

Busway north of Long Road underpass. With moving of light pillars and cutting of hedge at least 1.5m could be added to width of busway path.

Trumpington cycleway at Long Road underpass. To improve sight wys and prepare for re-opening of southern access from Long Road the line of the path should be moved away from the busway to permit sighting through the tunnel on approach.

Trumpington busway where a culvert narrows options for widening cycle-path at this point.

Trumpington Busway crossing Hobson Avenue. Electrical switchboxes on the edge of the cycle-path would require a lot of work to move for path widening.

Trumpington busway behind Fostar Road looking NE. A short section wheree the graded margin slopes down to the path. Could be dug back and stabilised with rock-cages and light pillars moved to add width.

Trumpington busway looking NE under Shelford Road Bridge. With removal of lighting pillar 1m could be added to the width of the path, even under the bridge.

Trumpington Busway looking NE, behind Cranleigh Close. Over 1m could easily be added to the width of the path by surfacing up to the cages.

Trumpington busway path looking back to Hauxton Road bridge. There is no possibility of widening the path under the bridge but minimal works could add 1m width.

Tight curve on a steep gradient entering the busway path at Trumpington P&R. Could be improved by following line of busway?

@helenpidd This one is pretty special - near Middlesbrough’s football ground https://t.co/tZddKVshoy

These staggered bollards are a much better solution than the gate that previously occupied this position, but the gravel surface combined with the steep slope makes passing through them a dangerous prospect. The new gravel surface should b ... [more]

Molehills in the asphalt?

No dropped kerb at the start of the path on Garbett Place. No signage either, even though this is part of the HArTT cycle route.

No properly dropped kerb at the steps and ramp (ramp out of sight to the right) up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at the Carmuirs Park football ground car park.

The tree roots have got so bad that there's been a collective move by cyclists to riding on the grass

The railings on this bride seem a bit low and permeable for a cycle route.

Missing drop kerb so cycleway entirely inacessible.

No drop kerb so cycleway inaccessible.

It would be helpful to make it clear at either end that pedestrians and cyclists can cut through here.

Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

Gap in what is apparently a segregated cycleway, by the main road west from Prishtina, Kosova

The riverside cycleway in Plovdiv turns right to a zebra crossing, goes through an underpass, comes back on another zebra crossing and then continues by the river - absurd!

The riverside cycleway in Plovdiv goes through an underpass then over a zebra crossing before resuming its riverside route.

I saw a few cyclists on this coastal path in Istanbul, but it could be made into a really useful route.

A1307 cycle path dropping to carriageway level to cross farm access.

A1307 cycle path dropping down to carriageway level at service road.

The narrow footway here forms part of the East Kilbride to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham cycle route. A pedestrian shown for scale.

The shared footway (although there has been no sign to say so) goes through a bus stop without any widening. Luckily for me, a bus had just left.

The Redwood Drive cycleway detours to cross Redwood Crescent.

A shared footway that is narrower than the adjacent unshared footway.

Is the cycleway so narrow because it is one-way? Probably not.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway takes a detour half way to the next roundabout at each of the Macivor Crescent junctions. It may even be quicker, although marginally longer, just to cycle round Macivor Crescent.

Broken glass on the cycle track between Tantallon Park and Glenluce Terrace.

No demand for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way, but cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Evidently, not all do!

Despite there being room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts, cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

Room for the cycle track at Whitemoss Roundabout to continue alongside the dual carriageway to reach Birniehill Roundabout, but instead, the cycle track merges with the A725 Kingsway carriageway. The footway to the left continues roughly ... [more]

Broken glass in the underpass at Whitemoss Roundabout. The only one of the town centre underpasses I found in such a state.

I'm not sure whether this kerb is dropped or not, but the path leads to the ramped footbridge across Kingsway to Burns Park.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

A connection between the cycle route from Blantyre, NCN756, and Iona Avenue, via a toucan crossing across East Mains Road. Iona Avenue leads to Kelso Drive where there is a ramped footbridge across Kingsway. Also, if the markings barely fit ... [more]

The narrow shared footway at the Whirlies Roundabout.

Crossing sliproads at Lee's Burn Court. Shared footways barely wide enough to paint the relevant markings on, and giving way to traffic coming from behind.. A more enlightened development would have brought the path through from Stoneyme ... [more]

An extremely narrow shared-use footway on the corner of Stoneymeadow Road and Whin Place.

The start of a very narrow shared-use footway on Stoneymeadow Road. The dropped kerb is just beyond the map sign.

An update on #28413, taken from the opposite direction.

No attempt to resolve conflict at the Kingsgate Retail Park bus stop on NCN756. No option to go around the back of the shelter as in #107619.

Waiting to cross. The bush seems to be taking over the NCN756 shared footway.

An illustration of why these shared-use footways are all a bit too narrow. Earphones in and got a surprise when I slowly edged ahead. But no harm done. Just everyday cycling on the infrastructure provided. Stewartfield Way is apparently ... [more]

The Stewartfield cycle path meets West Mains Road. Navigate between the bus shelter and the cabinet to get to the toucan crossing.

The cycleway merges into the bus stop layby, but the layout could easily be revised within the available space.

Someone needs to set up a website 'Rate My Asphalting'.

No signage at this major path junction in St Leonards. The only clue as to which way East Kilbride cycle route 2 goes is the widened path.

The shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. I don't know who thought that this would be an adequate design.

Give way to drivers exiting the Whitemoss Recreation Area - loss of priority.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

I'm hoping this newly marked cycle path alongside Whitemoss Avenue will be widened once the work behind the hoardings has been finished.

'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

The cycle path between the Murrayhill underpass and Mungo Park is in a rather poor condition.

No signage for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 anywhere through the grounds of the Dollan Aqua Centre, including here where the route leaves the car park and enters the park.

Cyclists are meant to join the carriageway here, just where Huntingdon Road narrows and cars cut into the cycle lane.

@michaelamj @SpokesLothian @POPScotland Here’s the “cycling/pedestrian” lane right in front of the Straiton retail park. I had to lift my bike so I didn’t puncture any tyres https://t.co/ARu4x2OzL7

The crossing of the new A1307 cycle path over The Avenue. Note the sharp turn after the crossing.

The A1307 cycle path crosses The Avenue here with sharp turns either side of the crossing (and more sharp turns if you actually want to go along The Avenue).

2/4 Others have discussed the left hook risk to cyclists at the Devon St junction @GoBikeGlasgow eg https://t.co/hsiql8duc7. Today I was nearly left-hooked by a council vehicle overtaking and turning in front of me into Torrisdale St. The ... [more]

No widening of this narrow footway took place to convert it into the Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway. Pathetic!

Take care at the high speed junction at Mountblow Road.

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

The winter has taken its toll on the Garscadden Way. This is listed as an official cycle route in the council's GIS system at https://glasgowgis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=0a599fa51e3d4460a615653700769bf7

Rougher section of NCN1 between Tentsmuir Forest and Tayport

Rougher section of NCN1 between Tentsmuir Forest and Tayport

Access to the Tay Bridge from Dundee - totally unsignposted (this is NCN route 1...)

Cyclists heading east from the Tay Bridge should go west here and U-turn - not signposted (this is NCN route 1...).

Massive hole in the Perth-Luncarty cycle route - how are people meant to get across the road to/from the shared-use path? Even a zebra would help.

Very muddy towpath, not easily passable by bike

A poor quality path, with a hump, at a crossing with a track at Dalnottar.

A rather uninviting entrance to the Thomas Wood Path at Duntocher.

Grim subway under a flyover in Walton, Liverpool.

Descent into a grim subway - the barrier arrangement here creates some visibility at an otherwise blind turn into the tunnel.

Faded and cracked cycleways, car priority.

Very roundabout route from St Davids station to Exeter city centre - pedestrians go through the car park to the left but cyclists have to come this way.

If you like roller coasters @NewcastleCC is building one along the great north road. These driveways could have been dealt with so much better. @NewCycling https://t.co/rWWKtW2nsq

This useful cycleway is unfortunately badly overgrown.

Useful link, Trnava, Slovakia - a dropped kerb would help.

Tunnels on this route are long , curved and dark! Lights required

Tunnels on this route are long, curved and very dark! Good lights required

Not a good route past the technical university, Bratislava

Badly flooded sections of paths like this are simple to fix but councils never seem to bother. This will only get worse, but the solution is very simple - create a drain to the left.

Exit from route through car park, Bratislava - a proper crossing to the excellent riverside route is needed somewhere.

An interesting way to mark a cycle lane but the end result is that it's almost invisible to everyone, and completely invisible to those pedestrians with poor eyesight.

Timperley nr Manchester . A cycle lane and a segregated cycle lane are discontinued just when it's needed the most . At the junction the rider is expected to rejoin the road largely unseen and in danger of being left hooked or head on colli ... [more]

It is days like today that highlight how car centric Glasgow is. Almost 50% of Glaswegians don't have access to a private car. While the roads were ice free, the paths were like ice rinks. #activetravel #travelpoverty https://t.co/vhkNFMcgc ... [more]

Bridge linking the two parts of Staverton Road, Daventry - showing the lack of a safe crossing and space for cyclists to dismount
