Photo listing : road environments (problem)

The cycle lane merging like this is a nice idea, but it should be reinforced with wands in the chevron area.

These typical TFGM crossings are better than nothing but the controls are very difficult to see while cycling and the layout is difficult for a cyclist to navigate. Also, pedestrians and cyclists should not have to cross the road in stages ... [more]

The crossing is welcome but the approach is difficult to navigate. Cyclists do not ride in right-angles, they ride in curves, and so the approach should be curved. And the buttons can be difficult for someone on a cargo bike to reach with ... [more]

No dropped kerb at Windsor Street/Windsor Terrace to get through to North Woodside Road at the Lidl supermarket.

Poster erected by ad-hoc committee of traders and residents implying (falsely) that the whole community is behind their campaign to reinstate all the pollution and injuries arising from through-traffic on the bridge. In fact, only 50-70 ... [more]

Lots of space for a contraflow cycleway by this one-way road.

Overly wide and dangerous expanses of tarmac to cross, with vehicles speeding on/off the roundabout, a Highways England signature.

Overly wide and dangerous expanses of tarmac to cross, with vehicles speeding off the roundabout, a Highways England signature.

The road markings tell cyclists to turn right from the left-hand side of the lane - potentially disastrous.

Developers have provided a footway for 150m north on NCN route 6 - they should have done a proper job and linked up with the existing shared-use path.

The usual semi-finished look of a new housing development, with piles of asphalt instead of proper dropped kerbs.

The poor footway by the A1041 ends without a dropped kerb.

Poor stretch of footway by the A1041.

Wasn’t much rain yesterday, a runner and I awaiting at a slightly flooded Keyhole Bridge for passage into Poole Park. One of the DfT Active Travel priority experimental measures for ⁦@BCPCouncil⁩ area https://t.co/0OKip75uPV

Walking route is very narrow and cycling this road feels treacherous. Cycle link required from Watton at Stone to the Stevenage cycling infra to make this commute/retail route viable for people to leave their cars behind. HCC spent £ms on ... [more]

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Some of the traffic cylinders were missing on this section.

No bus boarder at this bus stop, requiring anyone cycling to overtake stopped buses in the busy outside lanes. The cycle lane starts just after the bus stop.

No cycle lane on this section of Great Western Road, just arrows urging drivers to move out.

Plenty of space for a cycle bypass if motor vehicle storage wasn't seen as more important.

Soft sand, small wheels, impossible to ride hard work to push!

The nearby lanes are all very quiet, but the B3293 is a busy road and cars go very fast especially on this straight - speed cameras would help.

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on th ... [more]

The advisory cycle lane in University Avenue changes to a mandatory cycle lane, but the double yellow lines stop.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

The wet tyre tracks in the Gordon Street contraflow cycle lane reveal that some motorists are entering it in lieu of slowing down to make a tighter turn.

The pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road is to end at Lincoln Avenue. After that, there are just discontinuous peak hour bus lanes.

No provision for safe cycling on Duntreath Avenue.

A couple of hundred metres of shared-use path would keep Cambridge-Newmarket cyclists off the A1304.

Glasgow cyclists, be very wary of the new cycle path at Mosspark Boulevard & Drumbrek Road, The removal of cones means cars are treating it as a left hand car lane. You could get hit by oncoming traffic https://t.co/HdESW6m0eK

Warning signs on this new road and pavement parking

Diagonal implied crossing, paint's a bit worn already.

Diagonal implied crossing rather than straight matching the desire line to the stairs

Entrance to golf club, slip road approaching from the north so traffic could be travelling at speed

Path caked in leaves and mud, the NCN 12 sign shows the route that most sensible people would take.

Someone acting as lookout on the southern side of Clay Hill for children on bikes crossing from Flash Lane going down to NCN12, could do with a crossing or island on this junction

Absolutely horrible right turn here on NCN route 11

This on southbound A7. There to protect cycle lane to #ERI. Wands dumped inside entrance to park. @EdinPolSE @lmacinnessnp https://t.co/wpTD6YNrrV

It looks as if they took out the traffic calming but left a sort of cycle bypass. Get rid of it.

Unprotected right turn to reach the A10 crossing and the cycleway to Landbeach

No signage at the start of Butt Lane for the route to Histon.

Terrible surface here, just where you have to ride to avoid dooring and overtaking motor vehicles

Horrible 20 metre-long tramline in the tarmac, causing instability just where you have to ride to avoid dooring by parked cars and either overtaking by impatient drivers in inadequate space or harassment from behind. Repeated requests to Co ... [more]

There is an advance cycle stop box at these traffic lights, but it was never repainted after being resurfaced several years ago. The cycle lane leading to it is also almost invisible. The road is narrowed here by a central island. Major haz ... [more]

Believe it or not, there is a painted cycle lane here, but drivers cannot see it and often encroach

Merging from shared-use path onto road can be scary, not helped by missing bollard at tip of build-out kerb, giving drivers no warning of cycles appearing

There will be roadworks on Histon Road for the next year - as promised there is a contraflow (southbound) cycleway, but all the signs ignore the existence of cyclists.

Give way paint not renewed in resurfacing work last year, leading to confusing directions that differ for those leaving vs those entering

Becoming overgrown reducing path width and visibility

Metal dropdown "gate" plates. The cycle parking is behind these so to ride to the cycle parking you have to go over these or walk via the pavement area. Grip seems a bit degraded when wet

Wrong sign, it's all shared path here

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

Missing dropped kerb entering Dollis Valley shared path

I agree with this sign - lots of motorists speed around these roads and some are impatient over this bridge.

People walking into the road in the way of vehicles passing through, to avoid queues from social distancing.

Sedgwick Street - the recently refreshed marking and signs here don't make any mention of the contraflow cycling. From the other direction there is a contraflow plate, see #137461 Reported as reference: 341605 at https://highwaysrep ... [more]

The road is wide enough for marked parking bays so plenty of room to widen the pavement, but what does Warrington Council do? Make the pavements one way! What are you supposed to do if you want to get to the high street? Walk all the way up ... [more]

Pavement so narrow that the sides of the bus shelter had to be removed - yet the council put signs up telling pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap". How? UPDATE 25th June: Carriageway space has been reallocated to widen the bus stop: #139538

The high street is very wide and even has space for parking bays, yet the best Warrington Borough Council can come up with as a response to the pandemic is stickers telling pedestrians to maintain their distance on the narrow pavement left ... [more]

What is needed is wider pavements - not signs telling pedestrians to mind the gap on a pavement that is obviously too narrow. The road is very wide here. UPDATE 25th June: barriers have been installed to widen the footway: #139535

Just putting stickers down to tell pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap" when the pavement squeezes between a building and railings is rather missing the point.

It's hard to tell whether the cycle lane markings on ths new road have worn away already or, like those on Shelford Road, been removed by the county council.

The queue for the drive-through lane at McDonald's - 3pm so not blocking Wadloes Road, but apparently it does at busier times.

There's a path under the undergrowth somewhere

Cycleways should be part of the road, not the pavement. Being part of a pavement encourages cyclists to ride on normal pavements putting children and the elderly at risk. GET THEM OFF THE PAVEMENTS!

The cycle gate approaching Trumpington has been removed, as have all the cycle lanes on both sides of Shelford Road. Does anyone have any idea what the county council is doing here?

The hideously narrow cycle lanes painted recently in Girton. Too narrow for a person in a handcycle to use, and often covered in parked cars anyway.

Too much space for cars in this new development

Salzstraße zu eng für Schwerlastverkehr. Trotz Abbiegen im Gegenverkehr touchiert der Auflieger den Bürgersteig.

If only there was some space for cycling on Queen Margaret Drive.

Pedestrians aren't meant to use the north side of the gyratory at the Hydro, and it isn't much more suitable for cycling either. There used to be a direct underpass link towards the SECC here, but it was filled in when the gyratory was b ... [more]

The gyratory doesn't even have a footway at the back of the Hydro car park, and with the SECC covered walkway closed, people are finding their way to Finnieston as best they can.

The gyratory at the Hydro. To get back onto Finnieston Street, take lane 3 through this junction, lane 2 around the corner, and regain the inside lane after the next turn.

To cycle up Finnieston St, one needs to traverse the gyratory around the Hydro car park.

Permitted pavement parking making the footway extremely narrow, people walk in the road.
