There is a reason I walk the pram around Haringay Gardens rather than the Ladder during Harry's lunchtime naps. No cars. It feels safer, less polluted and so much quieter.

Progress continues on Histon Road and the safe 'Cyclops' junction Camcycle campaigned for is nearing completion.

A section of solid protection for the cycle lane on the roundabout on Wallacewell Road.


Mill Road

Norton Radstock Greenway exit onto A367 Bath Road in Radstock. Although it is shared path and exits onto a shared pavement the design is not bad. There is a barrier between the path and road to prevent young children using the path from c ... [more]

Millennium Way Cycle path upgraded to protected separated path rather than narrow shared use path

A gap is available for accessing the Paisley Road protected cycle track from Dalintober Street.

Torridon Avenue closed to motor traffic at its junction with Dumbreck Road, with cycles exempted and gaps provided.

The cycle filter at the end of Dargarvel Avenue has a signal since the junction of Dumbreck Road and Dumbreck Avenue is signalised. However, the gaps are not best aligned for movements straight across the junction.

Diagonal filter action.

Modal filter at Grangegorman, Dublin

Planters used to close off Kinbuck Street near Cowlairs Park, with room to cycle between them.

Traffic calming with two cycle bypasses in Coalpit Field, Bedworth

Just two weeks since a coalition took over the county council and already the dangerous pop-up barriers here have been removed. Coincidence? See #151657, #151658, #156151, #168794

Cycling with easel.

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

The Cumbernauld Road cycle lane, now protected with armadillos.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

The cycle lanes on Wallacewell Road are now equipped with armadillos right along the length of the road. The traffic islands appear to be marked up for adjustments to make the cycle lane wider past the islands.

I love this filter on Roslyn Road, Tottenham - it makes cycling home from Seven Sisters possible - plus this planter is absolutely beautiful 😍

An advance green has been provided for cycling into the protected cycle route straight ahead on Cambridge Street.

#Amazeballs the @wfcouncil #WhitneyRdE10 #ModalFilter off of #LeaBridgeRd goes from strength to strength! Gorgeous. Thank you to the volunteer gardeners who tend it and bring us this splendour!

Pop-up deterrents to car parking in Old Welwyn
