New two-way segregated cycleway constructed using wands

Now that’s how you design a quick build cycle lane and bus stop!! Admittedly, it does help if you’ve spent half a century aggressively widening roads in the name of car dominance.

One side of the road reallocated to cycling as part of COVID-19 physical distancing efforts.

Good to see some segregated bike lanes on London Road past Celtic Park/Emirates. Would be better if it went right to junctions but some good stretches. Painted lanes only further east after One-O-One - predictable parking issue around Braid ... [more]

Malden Road Jumping to the edge of the Borough, a traffic lane has been closed in each direction on the Worcester Park underpass to give protected space to people on 🚲 & give more space to people walking on the South side. Cycle coun ... [more]

Unterführung mit Radweg in zwei Richtungen

Llanthony Bridge in Gloucester.

Während der Corona Krise fahren wenig Autos. Fahrradfahrer radeln auf der Straße, es entstehen breite Flanier-Gehwege

sehr guter Radweg auf der ehem. Bahnstrecke von Marktoberdorf nach Lechbruck. Weiße Seitenstreifen als guter Kontrast nachts wünschenswert.

Although not yet complete the new road layout and protected cycleway is looking very good.

New asphalt surface beneath the Mersey Gateway bridge. Unfortunately the asphalt is ONLY beneath the bridge, the rest is compacted.

The UK’s first Dutch roundabout design under construction

cycle bridge with separate footway

Llanthony Bridge over the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal in Gloucester Docks. The Bridge only allows for Bicycles, Walking, Buses and Taxis. Dutch design lift bridge allowing for Ships and Canal Boats in Gloucester.

Llanthony Bridge in Gloucester Docks. Bicycles and Walkers mostly cross the lifting bridge deck, with the odd Taxi and very rare Bus.

Llanthony Road and Llanthony Bridge in Gloucester Docks. Mostly used by Bicycles and Foot, seldom used by Taxi or rare by Bus.

Somewhat excessive use of wands to separate out left/ahead turning cyclists

A good quality cycle crossing enables people to cross this busy road in comfort and safety.

Superb bidirectional cycleway alongside a river and main road.

New cycle provision on Hills Road

A much improved surface here, albeit gravel. Care is to be taken cycling here as the front wheel may step out unexpectedly.

Segregated cycleway using simple dividers, very common all around Barcelona now. Used also by electric scooter users.

New cycle control for the crossing. Buttons are better than induction loops, which can sometimes fail to register the presence of a bicycle.

New cycle crossing at West Point. The lights are controlled by a button (out of frame). This enables a completely safe crossing of this risky junction.

Cycleway

An old but excellent piece of cycling infrastructure, with bus bypasses. Streetview shows it there in 2009, further research shows it was built around the turn of the century.

Conceptual cross-section for Chesterton Road with protected cycleway, separate footway, and an avenue of trees in planted grass verges.

This cycle crossing is also perfectly placed for pedestrians, which invites conflict. It might be better to widen it significantly and remove all road markings - let people decide what they want to do.

An issue with this junction is that parked vehicles block the view of anyone cycling in the lane. This is a particular problem for people driving from Henrietta Street to East Union St. The road layout means that their view of any cyclist ... [more]

A new combined pedestrian and cycling zebra crossing is provided here.

Here the cycle lane splits. Right for cyclists, left for equestrians. The cyclists' option has barriers on the far side of the junction. The equestrians' option has no barriers. So everyone just takes the left fork, because it's easier.

Design vs user experience. Many cyclists are using the obvious, slightly bumpy route on the left. But the designer wants them to take the less obvious, more difficult route to the right. Bit of an oversight here - give people two options ... [more]

Cycleway on Fulbourn Road with priority over side road

Another loss of priority to a road used by very few vehicles. The cycle lane should continue straight across here, and cars be forced to give way.

A protected bypass has been built here, although it might have been better if it remained protected the closer one gets to the bridge (see the photo on the corner).

An excellent example of how to build a safe environment for all. This design is used on the north side of the bridge too.

A new section of cycle path alongside the A555. The surface is high quality and it's quite wide (there's a big deep ditch to the right that restricts it).

A new ramp down to the new cycle track alongside the A555. This is a good surface and is well signposted.

Priority given over to a side road that serves only one property. This is utterly pointless in a location that sees very low level of traffic. Priority should be given to walking and cycling here.

Priority taken away from the cycle path and given to a petrol station that is closed, and a hotel that sees low traffic levels. Both these are entrances to private property. Priority should remain with the cycle path.

Dashed lines across the carriageway might help here, but give way markings are needed before the tactile paving so cyclists aren't tempted to wander into the carriageway. The surface here is loose, the turns are tight, this could lead to p ... [more]
