Photo listing : cycleways (problem)

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

Shared use footway/cycleway crossover section.

Segregated shared-use cycleway crosses from one side of the pavement to the other. The markings on the ground are contradicted by the sign.

A mix of 'hazard' (on the pedestrian side) and 'cycleway' tactile paving slabs. They should all be the latter variety. The orientation is correct.

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Bizarre juxtaposition a national speed limit (60mph) and a cycle route the trans pennine trail NCN62 no less ! And when you pan left you see yet another http://goo.gl/maps/VozJ8 a cycle route ahead sign on the same post as a national speed ... [more]

Leeds Bradford Cycle Superhighway - narrow section, which is the exception

Leeds Bradford Cycle Superhighway - junction handling not done

Leeds Bradford Cycle Superhighway - blind corner

Hmm I wonder why this cycle through route is not being used much? #Crawley #cycling https://t.co/y7MDebcqwy

The solution to the Whistleberry gap was not to build a ramp to the steps next to the A725, but to sign the existing footway as a cycleway, with no widening at bus stops, just markings.

Crossing Main Street. I didn't bother trying to use the footway of the road to the sports centre on the far side of the road.

The end of the Ravenscraig cycleway and the provision at the A723/B7066 roundabout. Cyclists to merge onto the road, with sliplanes provided both sides. Hopefully this will be rectified when the road is dualled. A new footway/cycleway is pr ... [more]

End of the line-segregated cycleway through Ravenscraig. Why doesn't it continue through to Craigneuk St?

The cycleway from Carfin doesn't yet extend to the end of Robberhall Road to meet the Craigneuk St roundabout cycleway.

The cycle route turns sharp right around the back of the bush to where the van is parked. The sign is facing the wrong way, and the footway markings are worn out. It's like they are not even trying to create a decent cycle route. The mod ... [more]

The Chapel St crossing has a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, even though it has toucan crossing like most of the other crossings. Not much thought has gone into aligning this junction for walking and cycling.

South Lanarkshire Council is excelling itself here, I think.

Not good for cycling, not good for bussing.

Totally inadequate shared footway/cycleway in downtown Blantyre, with toucan crossing in the distance where route (74) crosses the A724 to meet NCN74 in the park.

Route (74) is signed along this fairly ordinary footway.

Awful surface and markings on cycleway

It's a good thing the Milton parents did keep the free bus for Impington Village College. The fairly new cycle path along Butt Lane is becoming virtually unuseable owing to lack of maintenance. This is one example photo over overhanging ve ... [more]

linked to 89679 - sentiments the same, location approximate - there are plenty of examples along there. Note the bramble - luckily I was wearing knee-length leather boots so neither suffered damage to clothes nor to bare skin. That's eye ... [more]

Dingy underpass. Would be best to have a proper controlled crossing to favour walking and cycling over motor vehicles.

Loose surfaces and more conflict. Not great changes.

Exactly where you should not put a cycle lane - in the footing zone.

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]

If you wouldn't walk on it, why expect people to ride on it? East Parade, East Perth https://t.co/9QeAjbqSHc

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. UPDATE MAY 2017: The path has been shut for this to be dealt with. http://www.gobike.org/closure-to-cycle-route-south-side-of-clyde-ncn756-f ... [more]

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 https://t.co/IRq9rATGlM

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 https://t.co/75bkyQMT2z

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. https://t.co/uqrlL1PRvU
