Alignment of the new bridge is shortest/easiest crossing of the brook, and not great for sightlines and continuity of the path.

A short stretch of the path on the common is very narrow while they work to lay out the edge of the new alignment.

Handrail in place on north bridge steps, concrete detail fettling apparently still in progress.

Trail is not yet surfaced at the bend near the footpath/footbridge crossing - but work is in progress.

Handrail in place on south bridge steps, beds ready for planting.

Concrete has been poured for the ends of the bridge on Coldham's Common

[Image taken 20.10.21] Leeman Road, Memorial Gardens, York. Pedestrians must cross the cyclist exit and this is a very busy route to-from the rail station (see: #169506). It also floods: #169496, #169497. Context and links to other images t ... [more]

[Image taken 20.10.21] Waitrose, Foss Islands Way, York. This is the main entrance. But the clutter on the pavement and... more worryingly the insubstantial metal support of the barrier. A blind or partially sighted person might not see it. ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. The image shows the need for wider spacing or positioning racks so the ends can be used by other longer and wider designs. The owner says it’s the only one – so far – in the city; that it does ... [more]

Scope for a (seasonally flooding) cycle track along the Arno?

[Image taken 17.10.21] York railway station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Hurrah! At last the two underpasses have imagery in them. The photos are of places along the LNER route. Several years ago I did a walk around with a ... [more]

South approach to underpass is still much less well advanced.

First layer of tarmac done at northern approach to Newmarket Road underpass.

First layer of tarmac done at northern approach to Newmarket Road underpass.

There's quite a lot of detail fettling of concrete in process on bridge ramp and steps.

Trail alongside realigned brook on Ditton Meadow: first patch of tarmac done.

Trail river bridge north ramp: base tarmac done, top layer still to do?

New cycle wagon to be propelled by railcars on the Stuttgart-Degerloch rack railway.

I find it strange that, of all the bus stops around the city of Glasgow, the two sites chosen for the green-roof bus shelters are both at locations that are no longer served by bus services due to the adjacent Fastlink busway. See also #174 ... [more]

[Route ridden/data captured 8.10.21] York. This is the official, signed, diversion route during the Clementhorpe flood works. It is around 2km long. Typical ride time: around 10m but the junctions mean it could be longer. The route is twist ... [more]

Microcar in The Netherlands. This one had a noisy petrol engine, was on a cycleway (on which some mopeds are also allowed), and was travelling at about 30kph.

A tempting route but a dead-end - cyclists need to go through the village of Mercues to the right.

North approach to underpass and NMR beginning to look reasonably well advanced.

The north compound is beginning to look quite tidy and well-advanced.

I guess that this (alongside the Marleigh haul road) is the new connection to Newmarket Road for the Jubilee path, bypassing the P&R site.

Good advice on road positioning at junctions from Cycling UK. https://www.cyclinguk.org/road-position Shot in this part of Guildford. https://twitter.com/wearecyclinguk/status/1446385167090790466

Equestrian route parallel to Dutch cycleway. Location is approximate.

Bucolic delights in abundance along ncn1 as it descends Achany Glen towards the Kyle of Sutherland and Dornoch Firth.

[UPDATE: 9.10.21. The contractors retrieved the sign and put it back into position.] [Image taken 8.10.21] West Esplanade, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Another useless sign. This one is for wheelchair users on the diversion ... [more]

The disused Lot Valley railway - I'd love to see this converted to a cycle route, with some fun tunnels!

[UPDATE: On the afternoon of 9.10.21 these had gone.] [Image taken 7.10.21] Burton Stone Lane, York. The red frame shows the existence and location of one or more signs not in situ, not doing their jobs. Therefore they are hazards and eyeso ... [more]

[UPDATE: On the afternoon of 9.10.21 this had gone.] [Image taken 7.10.21] Burton Stone Lane, York. Another fallen sign. Plus the sand/grit from damaged bags is a slip and skid hazard. It doesn't stay in place. It gets moved around by foot, ... [more]

Looking back down the incline up to Middleton Top

@miketwalton @RapidDevon @DianaFMoore @GreenAmyExeter @Luke_Sills Pretty sure Cowick Hill is worse https://t.co/gp4GHaB1h9

Believe it or not, that's a cycle lane. 🤦‍♂️ https://t.co/YAmI40PQVi

The gradient for the Trail to reach the north side of Newmarket Road. Steep, but not as bad as (eg) existing river bridges.

Work in progress on surface sub-layer of Trail at north end of Newmarket Road underpass

Signs at each end of the jetty say Footpath closed 25 Oct for 1 week

Beyond the red&white railings, signs of progress on the Trail route alongside the brook.

[UPDATE: Measurements between the bollards: #174633.] [Image taken 5.10.21] Navigation Road, York. Compare this image with this one: #174579. The difference is the number of bollards has been reduced. It was too wet for measuring and chalk ... [more]

[Image taken 4.10.21] Looking towards Bootham Terrace, York. The limited limited space and the angle of the road (uphill towards Bootham) are obvious. The entry-exit point ahead of the rail underpass is just 224cm. For all users: cycles, in ... [more]

[Image taken 2.10.21] Taco Bell, Monks Cross Drive, Huntington, York. A cone blocks access to the drive-thru. Is this related to my complaints: #173069? Or staff shortages? There was a huge, ‘We’re hiring banner’ facing the road/cycle ... [more]

Astonishing sight - this was all a car park last time I was here, now moved a few hundred metres south with this area regenerating very nicely.

New brook alignment is open to the river, as far as the culvert at the south end of the bridge ramp

North bridge ramp looks about ready for tarmac

Deep excavation for Trail north of Newmarket Road underpass

Compound on Common next to Newmarket Road part-cleared

Well that's one way to block the new path to the bridge into the cafe site. Very untidy.

Temporary tarmac present for foot/cycle path, and machinery access 'paving' absent, north of brook crossing

Need to add pedestrian gate etc next to new cattlegrid north of the railway underpass

Looks like they are not planning to install a second cattlegrid south of the railway underpass

Work in several areas of the south underpass compound is concentrated on drainage

Excavating for Trail foundations at north approach to underpass

Survey work in progress on Trail river bridge north ramp

Step-free access to the ramparts of Saint Malo - not intended for cycling, I'm sure.

This Bombardier Regio 2N train at St Malo has double-deck carriages with no doors, and doors and cycle space in shorter modules over the bogies.

Slightly odd arrangement of cycle space on this Bombardier Regio 2N train at St Malo - it's in the space between the carriages, over an articulated bogie.

[Image taken 17.9.21] Scarborough Bridge, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] Another cyclist alerted me to this chap doing a survey on the bridge this week. Great to be asked my opinion of something that is really good. The access ... [more]

Steps over railway at Bruntstane Station on NCN route 1

138 years after the Brooklyn Bridge opened, a new bike path takes a lane and @NYC_DOT takes biking across the East River to its logical conclusion. The only question is if one lane will be enough. https://t.co/I3efMZGHhU Review in this t ... [more]

Bridge under the Petite Ceinture railway - wouldn't that make a great linear park and cycleway?
