[Image taken 23.2.21] We don't have a garden. We don't want to put compostable kitchen waste into landfill though. So we have a composter. When it fills up, we bag up some of the contents and carry it in our cycle trailer from home - this i ... [more]

The lines of desire - Bicycle and Footprints in the miry clay, where a Segregated Bicycle Lane is desperately needed along St Oswalds Road, Gloucester. Wide roads and narrow paths abound here.

Progress on groundwork alongside southern end of Chisholm Trail river bridge

When the culvert is installed and the sheet piles removed, there is still plenty of work to do to link the end of the jetty to the reinstated riverside path.

Progress on groundworks around the northern end of the Chisholm Trail river bridge.

The sheet-pile enclosure where we think a culvert is being installed for NCN51 to cross the re-aligned Brook. Safety fence, person/equipment lift, and simple bucket etc crane visible - but no way to see progress within.

This is what greets anyone who wants to use the footbridge while the NCN51 riverside jetty and the NCN51 diversion via Newmarket Road are both closed.

Scaffolding to support utilities above works on the Chisholm Trail underpass. Fixtures will be concreted into the four holes in the foreground to make sure that nothing moves while the digging is underway.

Scaffolding will support utilities when the ground underneath is dug out for the Chisholm Trail underpass.

Good progress on groundwork for the Chisholm Trail approach to the north side of the Newmarket Road underpass.

Entrance to Birch Hill Plantation, off Mansfield Road. Taken from Poulterwell Lane, that leads to Palterton.

Bikes on the Butley Ferry (as used by Ralph Fiennes as Basil Brown in 'The Dig')

Not the largest lorry to be driven into the city centre but I can't help thinking that vehicles of this size and larger (and some that are a bit smaller too) shouldn't be allowed in. This one stopped here for sometime.

Underpass for B6419 on old Oxcroft branch line leading towards Stanfree.

[Image taken 5.2.21] During the lockdown in early 2021, people who can get to Monks Cross Park & Ride, York can exercise safely - and in directions almost as far as the eye can see. See also #162549

[Image taken 5.2.21] York, the car parks around Monks Cross Park & Ride offer space to scoot while schools and everywhere except essential shops are closed during the lockdown of early 2021. The surface is smooth tarmac and well drained. In ... [more]

[Photo taken 5.2.21] This wooden gate is on the motor traffic-free access between New Lane and the P&R at Monks Cross, York/Vangarde/the leisure centre... and the community stadium. What is its purpose?

Access from Markham Vale to Woodside /Shuttlewood over old railway line

Utilities under the south-side footway, to be negotiated by the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road

I think the vehicle at right of shot is on the approach ramp to the Chisholm Trail river bridge - giving an idea of progress so far.

I guess these are piles stabilising the approach ramp to the south side of the Chisholm Trail river bridge

Bolsover branch line

A white van man took the roundabout too fast and ended up in the trees. Police car and ambulance to the right.

(Presumably) survey marks for the location of the Chisholm Trail bridge over the brook and onto Coldham's Common

Utilities - including a big drain pipe? - revealed under the south side footway at the site of the Chisholm Trail underpass

Groundwork for the Chisholm Trail is getting closer at the underpass site

This looks like it will be the route between the towpath and bridge.

For the footings of stair or ramp to north side of Chisholm Trail river bridge?

Progress on the south side approach ramp to the Chisholm Trail river bridge?

A (presumably permanent) fender keeps boats away from the NCN51 jetty under rail and Trail bridges, but the (presumably temporary) cones remain.

[Image taken 1.2.21] Monks Cross retail park, York. Pavement ends. No drop kerb for people in wheelchairs, using wheeled walkers, with a wheeled shopping bag. See also #162107 #162108 #162109

[Image taken 1.2.21] Monks Cross retail park, York. No drop kerb to assist anyone who might need it and despite the disabled parking spaces opposite. See also #162104, #162108, #162109

[Image taken 1.2.21] Walking route with symbol. By contrast the cycle route 'ends'. Though it is also the 'start'. So why the word and not a cycle symbol as elsewhere eg #156848? See also #162104 #162107 #162109

[Image taken 1.2.21] York, Monks Cross, segregated cycle and pedestrian routes end without a drop kerb despite the family and disabled parking bays opposite. By contrast access from the car park/parking spaces to the shops is kerb free and ... [more]

Basil Brown (played by Ralph Fiennes) does a lot of cycling across Suffolk in 'The Dig' (actually from Rickinghall near Diss to Sutton Hoo).

Old railway line at Staveley that runs from Poolsbrook (Seymour Junction) under TPT to current canal

Beaumont Road gap. Easy to build an attractive active travel route through here and leave the mature trees standing. A route here would shave 1.5km off the route to school, and be entirely on segregated or very low-traffic routes.

Overgrown gap in Beaumont Road for future expansion. An active travel route to Netherhall Farm/GB1 could come through here. Netherhall School is 52m beyond the fenceline. This would provide good access from/to the site from the East.

Designed-for-expansion end of Almoners Avenue. Netherhall Farm site is 15m from the kerb. 39a is on the right. hedge marking end of plot is centre-left.

Best available active travel route from Netherhall Farm (GB1) site. Road designed for exactly this expansion. Provides safe, direct route to shops, schools and town.

Double yellows on Red Cross Lane will contribute to a much-used cycle route near Addenbrooke's, BioMed Campus, and Busway path

There's plenty of room to the right for a good route into Camborne (once one's past the mini-roundabout)

Unexpected reason for lack of progress on the NCN51 jetty under rail and Trail bridges

Progress on the ramp that will connect the Chisholm Trail with the north side of Newmarket Road

Remains, I think, of the footway - not material for the Chisholm Trail underpass

Precast sections for the sides of the approaches to the Chisholm Trail underpass

Preparations on the south side of Newmarket Road for the Chisholm Trail underpass. The footway diversion is very narrow, and some cyclists are using the roadway.

Oxcroft branch line

The C5018 from Nibthwaite to Monk House, along the east side of Coniston Water, was closed to motor vehicles for the summer of 2020 as traffic jams and badly parked cars made access impossible for emergency vehicles. It will probably be clo ... [more]

NCN51 diversion further diverted by preparations for Chisholm Trail underpass. Care needed eastbound where the new alignment mounts the unsatisfactory dropped kerb.

Digger plus archeologist (?) on site of Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road.

Preparations for Chisholm Trail underpass involve diversion of the temporary NCN51 route. Narrow, but with a 'passing place' part way along.

Why do I get the impression that driverists don’t know the size of their vehicles? A shame that the small cycle locking provision here is damaged and harder to use.

Fire at Hope Street yard behind the bike shop.

Looks like evidence of refreshed survey work for alignment of Chisholm Trail at north side of the underpass

At left of shot, two cones and some earthwork which seem to mark the alignment of the south end of the Chisholm Trail underpass Some of the concrete casts are marked with things like NW1 which presumably indicate their placement within ... [more]

Assumed to be preparations for the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road

A former railway viaduct is now the St.Thomas Elevated Park - cycles should be wheeled across, but the line continues as a cycleway to the west.

The 525m-long Brockville Railway Tunnel has reopened as a public walkway - it's at the end of the Brock Trail, but bikes must be wheeled through the tunnel to the lakefront.

Now (02/01/21) fewer culvert components in the compound - but not yet confirmed where the others have gone

Unidentifed concrete components on the cafe/underpass site.

Large & robust sections cast on cafe/underpass site and then moved aside. For the underpass???

Hartshead Pike Very cold and windy. but a great ride.
