Pothole inspection on Grange Road - how long will it be before the hole gets fixed? And why can't this be done by a small electric vehicle?

Ditton Meadows ramp and bridge.

Histon Road

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect.

[Image taken 1.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. The gap left for pedestrians is very narrow. There's no room to pass - even at pre-social distancing space requirements. It was tight on laden cycles. I am not certain a wheelchair could make it ... [more]

[Image taken 1.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. Works are taking place where there is usually a toucan crossing. No provision at all has been provided for people who cycle. Yet this (Rawcliffe/Clifton) area has a standard-setting extensive ne ... [more]

The Chief Engineer and colleague watch as the sixth box culvert (of fourteen) is lowered into place at Newmarket Road. This is a week long closure of the road to build the underpass for the Chisholm Trail.

Big hole in Newmarket Road. Good to see! @camcycle https://t.co/9QhDkemVhB

Segregated cycleway under construction on Histon Road

New arrangement of the Histon Road roadworks, with cars northbound only, to the right of the bollards, and cyclists to the left - but without a sign here.

There's a largely redundant dual-carriageway, but instead of taking a lane to provide the missing link cycleway between Swavesey and Fenstanton, they're spending much more time and money on a new alignment in the fields.

Work progressing on the new bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction.

Markings for improvements (?) on both footways of Madingley Road (and temporary traffic lights)

North Canal Bank Street is being extensively rebuilt, and includes a segregated cycleway. However, incorrect corduroy (hazard) tactile paving has been used instead of the cycleway type.

North Canal Bank Street is closed for extensive rebuilding. Pedestrian access is maintained to the left (see #165586).

Chisholm Trail rollout 🤗

Histon Road is now closed southbound except for cyclists - this is the rather messy arrangement at the southern end.

Histon Road is now closed southbound - most (but not all) of the No Entry signs have Except Cycle signs in place.

Histon Road is now closed southbound, except for cycles (although there is actually access for construction vehicles to Darwin Green to the right) - unfortunately there's no dropped kerb to reach it.

Trees have been cleared to build steps from Orchard Park to the A14 interchange at last - but no ramp, as far as I can see.

The southern end of the Garscube Road cycle track still hasn't been completed, but is at least now rideable. Top surface is all that is required. Further north, the path is complete up until Sawmillfield Street, with work in progress at the ... [more]

London contractors seem to be quite good at this nowadays.

Segregated cycle lane on Drayton Park under construction.

Redevelopment on Round Church Street nearing completion.

[Image taken 18.2.21] York: First of a blizzard of signs aimed at road users on Wigginton Road ahead of works at the junction with Crichton Avenue. The road is uphill, the carriageway in each direction is very narrow. It is used by large ve ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Too many signs. Messages get lost. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is still completely obscured at this point and therefore has no value. See also: #164311, #164310, #164313, #164314, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Only at this point do road users have a chance of seeing the Do not overtake cyclists sign. But this location is too late to make a difference. Plus drivers have had so many signs with so many mes ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Again, the Do not overtake cyclists sign would seem to have limited use being placed among a line of other signs, and therefore obscured. See also: #164311, #164310, #164312, #164313, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is now visible but it is very close to the junction. This would seem to limit the chances of drivers seeing it and is too late on this section of Wigginton Road f ... [more]

Cycleway closed for utility works - coming in to Cambridge it's easy to see a route through the bus stop lay-by, but heading out people just go across the muddy grass.

They're breeding! More bollards and fencing at this collapsing bridge. See #162112

Cycleway by new road from Northstowe towards the A14.

Traffic signals being installed on Lochburn Road at the canal bridge. Low-level cycle signals have been included for cyclists going along Lochburn Road. [Now they are operational, the low-level signals give cyclists a head-start of a few se ... [more]

Traffic flow has been reversed through the Histon Road roadworks. This gap is how cyclists are meant to rejoin the road network.

Traffic calming being installed - it's fairly obvious, but when the signs say Road Closed, they don't include cyclists and pedestrians.

Work in progress to make the 'Robin Hood junction' more pedestrian (but not cycle) friendly. Four-way lights control and sometimes long queues. OK to cycle with the traffic, but a nightmare to work out where to cross if wheeling or walking.

Coldham’s Common ground examination work, marking the start of construction of the Chisholm Trail.

Preparing for the underpass of Newmarket Road near the Leper Chapel.

Coldham’s Common work has started on the Chisholm Trail.

Good to see that cycles are allowed contraflow on the lengthy works on Histon Road, but quite narrow cycle lane staring down motor traffic.

@MikeyCycling @RBKC @mragilligan @willnorman @theJeremyVine First wands removed in front of Dutch embassy tonight https://t.co/Q3sKEubE49

Link under construction to the new Chisholm Trail bridge to Chesterton and Cambridge North station.

Some mistake surely? Northbound cycle lane, northbound general traffic lane, but at least southbound cyclists can use the footway here.

Some mistake surely? Northbound cycle lane, northbound general traffic lane, no southbound cycle lane.

Abbey-Chesterton bridge craning into place. At this moment the engineers were waiting for the all-clear from Network Rail to confirm that the bridge could be moved into place as it is quite close to their bridge. I think power to the ove ... [more]

Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - airborne

'Cycleway Suspended' sign due to roadworks and temporary traffic lights - it looks well enough organised here, but there was a queue of cars all around the Waitrose car park where the lights were only letting a few cars out at a time.

Unloading crane parts

Crane parts delivered.

Irony of closing a redway with bikes used to promote a development. At least there were some redway diversion signs nearby.

Coldham’s Common work has started at the entrance from Newmarket Road.

Cycleway being improved, with a road lane taken for a temporary cycleway

End of Cycleway sign at roadworks - dismount here

Finishing work still required at the southern end of the Garscube Road protected cycle lane. It will connecting into the underpass and other existing cycle infrastructure through Cowcaddens.

Progress on the Garscube Road cycle lane.

New cycle bridge under construction - part of a road-widening project, I think, alas.

Excellent provision for cyclists and pedestrians at these roadworks, while drivers have to take turns to pass.

Deviation for cycles and pedestrians (approximate location)

Cycleway closed - use the carriageway.

Temporary cycle lane during roadworks - no pedestrians allowed, in theory

No Entry except cycles - motor traffic lane taken over during roadworks.

One lane of carriageway closed to allow a cycleway deviation (of course).

Cycleways through a redevelopment zone, Amsterdam-Noord

Cycleway closed between Haarlem and Amsterdam - the on-road diversion wasn't too bad.
