Photo listing : cycleways (problem)

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

A decaying cycle marking on Edinburgh Road. There is so much potential for a protected cycle facility along the full length of Edinburgh Road, but this is about all there is apart from some ASLs.

A narrow "converted" footway alongside the A752, where I had to go onto the rough strip next to the carriageway to pass someone coming the other way.

A steep ramp out of underpass at Old Glasgow Road.

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway, at right angles!

This traffic island has a cage.

The cycleway around the roundabout at Drumsagard, where the traffic island isn't even big enough for the Give Way triangle!

A ludicrous arrangement at the bus stop on Main St. Not just the conflict caused by directing cyclists through the bus stop waiting area on the footway, but the raised kerb and drain cover at the start of the cycle lane! See also #89204.

A crazy arrangement for cycling on the footway through the bus stop. And watch out for the kerb when joining the cycle lane ahead - only the left side is dropped. See also #89206.

Cyclists are expected to cycle on the footway past a blind corner and then through the bus stop waiting area.

A busy shared-use footway outside Cambuslang station.

I guess it's a cycleway.

The cycleway carries along the footway as far as the next junction, then ends.

The cycleway on the footway starts just after the first M74 on-ramp junction.

The route just ends at the traffic signals before the M74 off-ramp junction, with a Give Way into the Advance Stop Line. It's hard to see any logic as to when cycle facilities are provided here. Westbound it is to cross the off-ramp, with n ... [more]

The toucan crossing signal boxes are positioned so they face away from approaching users.

A horrible pinch point on the brow of a hill as the A50 Knutsford Road leaves Warrington and traffic accelerates to the national speed limit. A pathetic attempt has been made at a cycle bypass, but it just throws you unextepectedly back int ... [more]

A narrow blind corner on the Broomielaw shared-use footway, with some upstand for anyone approaching from a position where they can see at least some way around the corner.

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

As if the Broomielaw shared-use footway wasn't bad enough in its own right, there is vertical upstand on the kerb at this private car park entrance.

Unprotected crossing of entrance slip road to Bridgewater Expressway. Traffic turns off Astmoor Road at speed.

End of Runcorn Promonade cycleway - no dropped kerb to join the road.

NCN562 crosses the extremely busy exit ramp from the Queensway Bridge with bo protection whatsoever

The Runcorn Loop Cycleway crosses Heath Road here. The central island is too narrow for cyclists to stop and creates a pinch point for cyclists riding on the road.

A minor sideroad crossing on the Cowdray Avenue cycle track. I don't think the Dutch would do it like this!

The white line appears to suggest the cycle route crosses the road, but the shared use provision continues straight ahead.

Poor sightlines at uncontrolled road crossing from narrow line-segregated cycleway.

Tran Pennine Trail goes through a large muddy puddle through the bridge under the A56

Bridgewater Way (RCN 82) goes up these steps to merge with the Runcorn Loop Cycleway - and then follows a ramp back down to the canal. It is much more sensible to keep to the tow path.

Link to Wrexham hospital - but then it all falls apart, there's no clear route through the site and no cycle parking.

Cyclists, wheelchair users etc on the cycleway beside the A539 have to go a ridiculously long way up this side road in order to cross it - why not a raised cushion right at the junction?

Very muddy surface on this stretch of the Bridgewater Way (RCN 82)

Steps - not the ideal choice of route for the Runcorn Loop Cycleway.

Far too narrow for two-way cycling!

Contradictory signs where the cycleway on the former railway arrives at a new roundabout

Route on former railway - which unfortunately still dead-ends at Wrexham's western bypass

Route on former railway - which unfortunately still dead-ends at Wrexham's western bypass

Route on former railway - which unfortunately still dead-ends at Wrexham's western bypass

There's clearly something wrong with the foundation of this path for the blocks to be like this.

Not the best surface for a cycle path. A dropped kerb for joining from the carriageway would also be advantageous.

More leaf mess on the South Bank cycle path.

The Clyde Walkway needs swept, like many off-road cyclepaths in Glasgow.

At a path junction like this I'd expect the corners to be filled in. I guess at some point the vacant plots of land will be developed and the opportunity to do this missed.

Cycleway gives way to office entrance - give way markings have been buried unded tactile paving.

cycle path gives way to office entrance.

Cycle Route ends - and drops of a newly installed full height kerb.

Signs and markings saying that bikes don't have priority.

Salford Broadway Needs wider pavement to get passed bus stop. This cycleway is a good alternative route from Eccles to Manchester to avoid the tram rails on Eccles New Road #70272

Obvious potential for a riverside cycle route in Siem Riep.

Broadheath Trafford George Richards Way outside Asda. The new road layout has not replaced the cycle icons to denote segregated/shared footpath Worse the bus shelter is placed in the cycle lane ! Would help to have a couple of dropped kerbs ... [more]

More tree root damage to the path at Sighthill.

Damage to the cycle path at Sighthill, caused by tree roots, making this half of the path unusable.

No improvement to the narrow traffic island at the St Rollox Brae junction.

The path from Vaila St to Balmore Road, and its connection onto the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

Palmer's Walk cycling being pushed to be banned. Local residents pushing for banning, at the Members' Steering Group, February 2017.

The path between Langa St and Vaila St, with its usual covering of glass.

Fiddle pavement conversion results in absurdly short stretches of shared use and completely unprotected crossing of the entry and exit arms of the roundabout.

Pavement conversion has an uprotected crossing of the busy exit and entry arms of a high speed roundabout

Shared use pavement. No adaption whatsoever other than the blue sign to make it usable by cyclists.

Narrow shared-use footway to access toucan crossing on Stonewell.

Not the prettiest of underpasses, and narrow with a corner at one end.

Path towards Lancaster, needing swept of decaying leaf mess in several locations.

The Temple Mills cycle lane water feature is fully stocked. @wfcouncil @NewhamLondon

There might eventually be a short stretch of decent riverside cycleway here in Kuala Lumpur - but this needs to be done much better.

@GlasgowCC and there is no pavement alternative

Cliddesden Road subway (NCN23) flooded again Location: , Basingstoke and Deane Borough (England, United Kingdom) The cycle track through this subway frequently floods at the northern end due to poor drainage

A slightly better approach to the monument than in #86781, but that kerb line sticks out into the cyclepath and might catch someone out.

Although there are no shared-use signs, the position of this little NCN sign suggests that all cyclists are expected to use this bog standard footway when following the National Cycle Network routes. Or at least that squares with the work-a ... [more]

Bizarre cycle lane merges onto the wrong side of the road and then ends abruptly at a give way marking.

The short and pretty pointless stretch of shared-use footway by the A30 roundabout leads only to McDonald's! Not even a link to take cyclists off the old A30 here. I wonder who paid for this?

This is not officially shared-use, but should be.

Unsigned approach to the tunnel beneath the railway.

@citycyclists @AlternativeDfT That's nothing:check out this beauty in Hackney.

A very messy cycleway.

The cycleway right up against the A77 carriageway, with risk of spray and grit being thrown over users. Cycling By Design Table 6.3 says "The Desirable Minimum clearance distance between a cycleway and carriageway with a speed limit in e ... [more]

A section of the A77 shared-use footway in need of resurfacing.

A narrow bit at the bus stop. Hopefully this is still to be improved.

The dropped kerbs at the Tarbolton Road crossing aren't up to much, particularly the one nearer the camera.

Nice shiny crash barrier. Pity about the path.

The A77 shared-use footway looking towards Kilmarnock. Very little separation from the motor traffic.

The path on Low Green comes away from the seafront, only for cyclists to be directed back to the Esplanade.

Is this an appropriate surface for a cycleway, especially at a turning point?

Poor drainage on the Low Green path.

Broken glass on the cycle path on Low Green.

Apparently cyclists can't be trusted to cycle down this ramp without something untoward happening. Also, unnecessary pole clutter.

Start of shared-use footway, but no dropped kerb to access it from carriageway. Warning of pedestrians crossing, with location specified.

NCN 7 shared-use footway alongside the A79 at Prestwick Airport. Just a buffer strip of coloured surfacing between the cycleway and the 40mph carriageway.

NCN 7 shared-use footway at the Prestwick Airport bus stop. See also #85965.

The shared-use path funded by Sainsbury goes as far as the entry to the new Sainsbury supermarket but no further - what would it have cost to extend it?

The St Albans Green Ring (signed for cycling) crossing the Verulamium Park cycle park (not properly signed)

There is a nasty, blind dog-leg on the Tesco Fulbourn path. I was hit, head on, by another rider as I came round this bend earlier this summer. The path continues straight on, to the left (see lady just emerging on a bike), but visibili ... [more]

slotted gulley cover could trap cycle wheels at this crossing

Incorrect use of corduroy paving to denote a segregated-shared-use path.

Multi-stage crossing with tight staggered cattle pens on the islands. Very awkward and time consuming.

shared-use bus stop

Cyclists following this fidldy segregated-shared-use path need to make a sharp turn across the exit of the roundabout.

Unprotected crossing of exit/entry arms of a high speed roundabout.

Two-way shared-use cycleway switches from one side of Whittle Avenue to the other - necessitating a delay to cross at the toucan crossing.

Shared use pavement conversion with no protection across entry and exit arms of a roundabout.

Fiddly shared use pavement conversion with no protection across exit/entry slip roads at a large fast roundabout.
