Photo listing : roadworks (problem)

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

Slippery cobbles being installed on Dalsholm Bridge.

The crossing to the east of Bunhouse Road has now been provided with asphalt ramps to aid pedestrians crossing. No sign of either dropped kerbs or raised crossings being installed. Incorrect corduroy (hazard) tactile paving is still in plac ... [more]

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

I snook through the car park to get past this temporary closure.

[Image taken 20.7.21] Station Avenue, York. The vehicle here is obstructing sight of temporary crossing lights for people on cycles needing to reach this lane. Other images here today: #172327, #172328, #172330. Other images today: #172321 ... [more]

@camcycle Tenison Road now. The message about that signage still not getting through to contractors https://t.co/x2ok5nDNJX

Update 1.7.21. Signs and work area had gone. [Image taken 29.6.21] Bootham Terrace, York. Fallen cone. Deconstructed sign. One is not doing its job and is therefore clutter. One is a hazard. Other images this issue, this location today see: ... [more]

Maybe it's because I don't enter Speirs Wharf from Craighall Road very often, but I almost cycled down the cobbled slope since I was this time going to turn left down the ramp to Garscube Road. The layout here could be better. The steps ... [more]

NO ! Cyclists cannot be expected to dismount just because they're slower through the lights than cars.

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy (a ... [more]

[Image taken 18.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. No mention of cyclists. See links in #167364.

[Image taken 18.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. Clifton/Rawcliffe are leisure, residential and retail areas with a network of segregated pedestrian and cycling links. York Council signs consistently overlook the existence of people who cycle ... [more]

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect. UPDATE: The raised crossing has been installed, but the tactile paving remains incorrect. See #175266.

18.4.21: Updated images/captions: #167349. [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. ... [more]

18.4.21: Updated images/captions: #167349. [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/Clifto ... [more]

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.

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.

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

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

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

You might think that this was a post-Covid19 pop-up cycle lane, but no, this is Cambridge, it's just for some inactive work on the footway outside Aldi.

Manchester Chester Road This road had major works done recently and had lane closures but the world did not end ! Email to saferstreets@manchester.gov.uk safestreetstrafford.commonplace.is/comments/5edc80126286f92848939dd1/ A temporary prot ... [more]

Great to hear that the Highways Agency has toiled heroically through the lockdown to open the new A14 and remove all temporary speed limits! Will they actually finish the cycle bridges and shared-use routes soon?

I didn't venture further than this excavation to see how little stands in the way of connecting Carmunnock Road to Stewartfield Way and the East Kilbride path network.

Boquhanran Road shut for roadworks at the canal bridge, but no-one seems to have seen the memo about signing the cycle access still being open.

London Road, Leicester

Unfinished trenching work at the Kelpies Marina.

Me: hooray I can take a bus to work and not worry about road layouts or roadworks. Also me: I must photograph and tweet this it’s awful. (Dartmouth Rd by Sydenham School). https://t.co/7LlzKp4eOg

As usual in this car-obsessed society, Road Closed means closed to motor vehicles - cyclists and pedestrians can get past this burst water main without much problem.

I'm not sure what the barriers here are meant to achieve, or why they are blocking the flagship cycleway on Waterloo Street.

@magnatom @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow We took this photo & plan to write to council. Why not 'please take care through roadworks and show respect to workers & fellow road users'? Feel free to use photo if you like. https://t.co/ ... [more]

Aaaand once again @GlasgowCC have allowed the shared path from Pollokshaws to Silverburn beside Barrhead Road to be blocked by works. @PersimmonHomes do you realise this route is for cyclists too and that many bikes are a lot wider than tha ... [more]

Road works

Toucan Crossing under construction across A4130 near Backhill Tunnel Location: , Milton (England, United Kingdom)

Welcome to the Brunel Mile. The way @BristolCouncil treats pedestrians and cyclists is beyond contempt. @mthrel you should be ashamed. https://t.co/ma8ymVoMBn

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I figure this probably isn't finished, but all the surface work appears to be done and only the lining remains to be finished. However, what alignmen ... [more]

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

Nine months after opening the new Forth Motorists' Bridge, are there any plans to introduce a functional cycle route over the Forth? @scotgov @HumzaYousaf @forthroadbridge @SpokesLothian @POPScotland https://t.co/pEbKXj6kVq

Hampshire County Council improving the carriageway by removing the cycle lanes on the approach to B3400 West Ham Roundabout. This will allow twice as many cars to queue for the roundabout. Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdo ... [more]

You can, no doubt, spot the other reason this sign has been used incorrectly.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]

Yet more seemingly abandoned Georgian roadworks without any barriers or warnings.

Roadworks are a mess in Georgia, and they're not good at making good afterwards either.

Georgian roadworks no. 10,004....

Georgian roadworks no. 10,003....

More roadworks in Kazbegi, Georgia - no signs, no diversions, but it makes parking so much easier.

... it's just a shame that the Bridge to Nowhere is once again living up to its name. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 #GetOffAndWalk https://t.co/3XpPXrlJGy

Road works to build bad new scheme for Addenbrooke's roundabout can't be bothered to provide safe crossings for people walking.

A wider view of the toucan crossing shown in #89015 that leads only to the bus stop in the distance (beside the bus). The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barr ... [more]

A messy join between old and new footways on Coatbridge Road.

The replacement Bredisholm Road farm road access bridge across the A8 and M8 motorway was originally meant to be ready to reopen in July 2016, but looks like there is still quite a bit of work to do if it is to meet the revised target of Ma ... [more]

This ramp forms part of NCN75 and has been closed for a few weeks. See #88472.

This has apparently been left like this for several weeks! No warning signs for anyone approaching from the riverside.

Very poor restoration of the road surface after utilities work.

Poor quality road reinstatement

Horrible bodged road repair

Tenison Road is closed for traffic-calming works - predictably, the signs are aimed exclusively at drivers and make no allowance for cyclists having access to most of it most of the time.

Already the new crossing surfacing is being eaten into by trenching works.

A newly installed painted cycle lane on Corporation Street, which has then been made narrower. More details of the cycle infrastructure along this street can be found at http://madcyclelanesofmanchester.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/corporation ... [more]

The main road past Baile Felix, Romania, has apparently been under repair for the last three years.

The county council's contractors have left a hole in the cycle track where a lamp post has been removed - how long till it gets filled in?

The classic Romanian approach to roadworks - do it all at once (but very slowly) rather than doing half and half and allowing reasonable access.

The classic Romanian approach to roadworks - do the whole street at once, and somehow allow residents' cars in and out as well. Not a fast process.

Lots of unfinished roadworks in Sighet - quite possibly the result of a corrupt deal that went wrong - or pure incompetence.

Lots of unfinished roadworks in Sighet - not pleasant for cyclists.

Taking the easy option. Who makes these signs anyway? What's wrong with 'Drivers give space to cyclists' ? http://t.co/GfKiJvcQRD

The street was closed for one day while a trench was dug to provide services for a newly built studio in the rear of a garden.

@magnatom @carsickglasgow thanks road guys, honestly, there's bags of room. http://t.co/fYPxtO450y

@magnatom @carsickglasgow using tablet. Never used surface being removed. http://t.co/WhUfBj6lag [This newspaper article relates: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/glasgow-city-council-spends-thousands-5626645]

@carsickglasgow @bollocksinfra @GlasgowCC in the, ahem, shared use path being narrowed by barriers http://t.co/Nt8JNX7K5l

Yet another demonstration that @cardiffcouncil has no idea how a cycle lane works. @citycyclists @Cyclingnewsfeed http://t.co/RqPlXbg3y9

Roadworks in Bouddha - no signs, no diversions, no sign of anything going on, and a hotel that can't be reached except by walking several hundred metres up a back alley.

Roadworks in Boudha - no signs, no diversions, no sign of anything going on, and a hotel that can't be reached except by walking several hundred metres up a back alley.

This is what happens when you think that pedestrianisation just means closing off one end of the street and a fancy surface without doing anything to control access or parking.

Roadworks in Tbilisi - cars are still allowed to park and so the whole process takes forever.

This junction is set to have four sets of staggered toucan crossings - while motorists will get double exit lanes - all this from a development which is supposed to promote walking and cycling and cut motor traffic journeys. Hrmph!

Signposted for pedestrians only in this direction - during construction of a massive junction for fast heavy motorised traffic into the Northwest Cambridge development.

A narrow staggered crossing with plastic bollards that provide absolutely no protection whatsoever from the 40mph traffic through here.

Lots of roadworks make Madingley Road an even more unpleasant experience than usual. Despite all the cones and fences the 40mph limit is retained.

Temporary (but for how long?) access to the Shelford path at Addenbrookes. To the other side of the small line of cones is a live road. Utterly, abjectly, awful. This is bad for cyclists. Terrible for those with long bikes or trailers ... [more]

Footpath closed for some works seemingly to the fence, but looks like the path itself is being widened here and resurfaced.

Flyover under construction for access to Ottawa Train Station - but the cycle routes need improving too!

One lane still closed on Barton Road an hour and a quarter after it was supposed to have been reopened.

Queueing back to the Trumpington Road because the (unnecessary) roadworks which are meant to be lifted at 15.30 daily were still in place an hour and a quarter later.

Markings for replacement of road markings after resurfacing. As the left-turn-only sign at the Grantchester St junction has not been covered up, the only legal way into Newnham Croft is via the two minor roads to the right, but there's no i ... [more]

Newnham Road closed in one direction for two weeks for totally unnecessary resurfacing - while potholes across Cambridge go unrepaired.

Barton Road closed in one direction for two weeks for totally unnecessary resurfacing - while potholes across Cambridge go unrepaired.

Newnham Road closed in one direction for two weeks for totally unnecessary resurfacing - while potholes across Cambridge go unrepaired. It would be nice if there was some indication that cyclists can use the usual routes along the Barton Ro ... [more]

To which I would ask, 'Why? Isn't the road good enough?'

It's hard to see how 'habitat and access improvements' require Lammas Land to be closed for almost two months (from early October, in fact).

Problematic signage during Hills Road building works (13 Aug 2013), to be challenged and posing serious liability issues, this sign is still being used after request to remove on previous day (12 Aug 2013)

Recently carried out but shoddily done road resurfacing in Canterbury Street!
