Photo listing : obstructions

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

Entry to large nature reserve between the North Road and the A1(M) - foot paths only.

Barrier to contraflow cycling - which really should have allowed here.

No level access at Baldock station

Motoring filter that should be modified to allow easy passage of bicycles.

Short pedestrian area that could use a more appropriate design to allow cycling.

Around the Houses. There are Barriers Galore on this Shared Use Path. A very long and slow way to go around the Houses. These Barriers hinder everyone on Foot and Bicycle. They could be removed and replaced by tactile paving.

A serious lack of attention from the council has resulted in this useful path becoming hugely overgrown. It is almost at the point of being impassible.

barriers on the route through Truro College

Steps to Green Lane, Portreath

A tempting quiet lane to Portreath harbour, but there are a few steps at the far end.

Totally blocked by deliveries on both sides.

Dropped kerb needed

Obstruction in the contraflow cycle lane, NCN route 4

it's awkward negotiating around armco barrier

bollard - no lighting

no lighting for this bollard

Can't be good to feel like a mug for following official cycle route signs. This is part of the Wirral Circular trail in West Kirby. For me it's irritating, those with mobility issues or nonstandard cycles are simply excluded. We can do bett ... [more]

The Sheep's Green cycle bridges were closed for a couple of days for fairly minor maintenance.

Come on guys new #barriers on #NationalCycleNetwork Route4 in #Newport not even sufficient clearance for handlebars!!! Perhaps at least make them adjustable #EqualityAct #PathsForEveryone @NewportCouncil @SustransCymru https://t.co/8XRPjWgR ... [more]

Battered railings encroaching further into a narrow shared path. Why exactly are they needed? The next crossing does not have railings.

This was already a very tight and awkward gap to negotiate. Knuckle crusher rails were installed last year to punish anybody who didn't get their alignment quite right. This bollard has now been added to make it even more difficult and make ... [more]

Burst water main, not being fixed. Grantchester High Street

Barrier to any tricycle or tandem on route to Oxenholme station

Barrier on track to the coastal footpath near the Fort de la Latte

Chicane barriers on the Transpennine trail NCN62. I suppose the idea is to slow down cyclists approaching the road, but this is entirely unnecessary as they are at the top of a steep ramp. The one positive is that they are a great improv ... [more]

Barrier on track to the coastal path south of Carolles

Dropped kerb needed and a cycleway along the Quai de la Londe, Caen

This 'wheeling channel' at Avignon Centre station is so close to the wall and the handrails that it's unusable.

Nothing has changed at Avignon TGV station - there are still cars parked in all the cycle lanes.

Stone blocks to stop cars on the Chemin des Montagnes, Aubrac

The end of the stretch of the Chemin de Saint Jacques pilgrimage route that's closed to bikes and animals due to grazing.

Trap to stop bikes and horses using this section of the Chemin de St Jacques pilgrimage route (due to grazing) - and the landowners have the cheek to put up a donations box saying they're bearing all the costs of maintaining this ancient ri ... [more]

Cars parked in eastbound advisory cycle lane and on pavement, Roman Road in Bethnal Green

Barrier designed to allow cycles but block motorbikes.

Gate

Awkward gate on MTB track and GR hiking route into the Chiateau de la Tryne estate

TWO years on and there is still no way to cycle from Runcorn to Widnes during weekdays.Work has overrun on the old bridge and cycling is prohibited on the new one - #103166

Missed opportunity to put a cycle route through this raised park

The footway is totally blocked, so everyone walks on the cycleway

Absolutely gigantic oversize barriers lead to a very poor quality gravel path, before you can access the better quality asphalt path that takes you into the industrial estate. These need to be removed.

Crazy not to provide a dropped kerb on this new link to Oxford station

Clear line of desire where the busway failed to provide a direct link from Over to the maintenance track - people are clearly carrying bikes across the busway here.

The shared footway takes people away from Manchester Road and over to Nelson Street, whether they want that or not. It seems some people ride across the grass so presumably they wish to stay with Manchester Road.

A gate and A-frame barrier blocking the way to the National Cycle Network at the far end of Sandal & Agbrigg station car park.

Guardrail is shit.

This needs to be opened up for cycling as well as pedestrians.

The worst anti-cycling barrier I’ve ever seen, erected by @TelfordWrekin. Those sharp corners are about at eye height on a road bike and approached around a bend on a down slope. https://t.co/zc0VzdUU1F

Received a torrent of abuse from drivers today when riding 300m on the A40 because of this ”sign” blocking the bike path. @OxfordshireCC, why are your contractors doing this? Location between Witney & Barnard Gate. Cc: @cllrbartington h ... [more]

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]
