Photo listing : roadworks (good practice)

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

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Garriochmill Road access to the Kelvin Walkway. A short path has been laid around the back of the work compound to maintain pedestrian and cycle access.

Cycleway under construction on the road passing Leicester's railway station.

The designated smoking area for the works.

Emergency gas roadworks closing one lane but maintaining full access to the cycle track.

No Overtaking Cyclists past these roadworks - which were cleared away by 1.30pm on a Friday.

Under construction - the riverside cycleway west from Rouen along the Seine

Polmadie Bridge being rebuilt.

Preliminary ground work for the Chisholm trail.

Not yet in use - new two-way segregated cycle track in Victoria BC.

Amazing! One tiny section of these roadworks have a sign and barriers in place. In Georgian and in English!

Path in Wyndford being widened, rerouted and resurfaced, providing more direct route between Kelvin Walkway and Southmuir Place.

Cyclist-only lane northbound through roadworks past the Royal Opera House

Temporary cycleway where the normal one is obstructed by construction work.

Good to see cyclists being considered here - though I don't think it was really necessary to dismount.

Under construction: a new pedestrian and cycle friendly street. :-)

In its own way, rather beautiful. A temporary four way crossing control point (because of road works happening nearby) with provision for those on bikes.

A section of the A77 cycleway that is being resurfaced, and has been left open for use in the meantime. Off to the left one of the crossing points can just be seen, where the dual carriageway can be crossed to access properties on the op ... [more]

Shared-use pavement work going on. Diversion onto road now includes ramps for riders (it didn't yesterday!). And this means taking a road lane out to temporary traffic lights. Now, to get those awkward concrete blocks out of the diversion r ... [more]

Improved crossing for cyclists. A protected waiting area in the middle of the road lets cyclists cross the road faster and safer, especially during rush hours.

Diverted footway and cycle lane, at the expense of space for motor vehicles.

Bridge work being done to one side of footbridge, with other side kept clear for pedestrians.

Tenison Road closure to through-traffic during works - perhaps this should be made permanent, given that people are coping for 3 months?

The ground has been cut! Cambridgeshire Highways start work on installing cycle parking in Thoday Street. https://twitter.com/simon_nuttall/status/573067490986729472

Diversion for cyclists due to rebuilding the cycle track.

The iron work is still a little raised but Short Street is finally being resurfaced, with the setts removed too. Let's hope it lasts.

This is impressive making space for cyclists during roadworks. Istedgade, #Copenhagen http://t.co/USOsCd5Y2F

A photo showing how a cycle lane closure should be handled. Not with a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign but a simple white arrow on a blue background.

Cycle Lane Closed Cyclists merging from the left

The right way to deal with closure of a cycle lane for roadworks - rather than the usual "Cyclists Dismount". Note that the smaller sign behind instructs drivers not to overtake cyclists because of narrow lanes. (Although not entirely cle ... [more]

Good practice - Do Not Overtake Cyclists signs at roadworks on the Embankment

Oldenburg cycleways

Oldenburg roadworks signage explicitly permits cyclists here.

Major roadworks - ah, maybe it isn't open for cyclists after all. But the diversion is well signed.

Major roadworks, Road Closed Except [for] Cycles - the designated cycle lane is a bit narrow, but there's no reason not to go to the right of the signs. (Also Boris Bikes to the left, of course)

Major roadworks, Road Closed Except [for] Cycles - but the arrangements for cycles could be a bit more obvious.

At last! the awful cycle lane on Bateman Street being dug up and resurfaced.

A cycle lane created during these works on Hills Road which are necessary to re-site some services which lie under the road.

It's great that there's a northbound cycle lane on Hills Road while northbound vehicles have to go a long way around!

More of these signs at road works would be appreciated. This location currently has two sets of road works on either side of the road, so it is much narrower than it should be.

Diversion for cyclists around an extensive area of roadworks by London Bridge station.

Narrow Lanes Do Not Overtake Cyclists - leaving aside the dodgy grammar, this is excellent advice - possibly influenced by practice in Cambridge.

Busy cycle route (and dead-end road) being repaired at last!

Busy but potholed cycle route being repaired.

Russell Road tramworks closure. Russell Road itself has been kept open for pedestrians and cyclists, although the connection to the Roseburn Path and Haymarket has been closed.

Ashton Lane give priority sign (better than traffic lights)

Its good to see a cycling gap in this 'road closure'. But the gap on the far side of the road does not look official.

Resurfacing a cyclepath, Dutch style. This four kilometre long, four metre wide cycle path is being resurfaced. There's room for two rollers next to each other. The sign reads "Fietspad - dus niet brommen". i.e. "Cyclepath - therefore ... [more]

Resurfacing of a cycle path. This path is 4 m wide and four kilometres long without interruption, providing part of a fast cycle route around Assen. The new surface is several inches of asphalt laid on top of proper foundations. The same ma ... [more]

Redevelopment of Exhibition Road - see #30666.

AFTER - 15 minutes later Cleared! See before at #30474

Good practice for protecting a cycle lane at roadworks.

Grange Road - still open for cycling while repairs on water pipes are carried out.

Cycle lane retained during works by adding cones.

The Seven Stations cycle route has been kept open through these roadworks while cars have to go the long way around. pedestrians are less well catered for, with no sign to their route on the north side of the roadworks.

Alternativement arrangements for cyclists at roadworks

Immaculate four metre wide cycle-path surface without potholes despite many freeze and thaw cycles. This is the result of a high standard of path construction and maintenance. See #20650 for an example of what is done to fix potholes whe ... [more]

To me the cycle path already looked adequately empty of leaves. In the Netherlands cycle paths always do. All the time. However, here comes the leaf sweeper again just to make sure. 3 metre wide secondary cycle path behind a residential ... [more]

Another day, another sweeper. Leaves being removed from a 4 metre wide main cycle path in Assen

Re-surfacing of Mill Road

Constructing the Oyster Bay Trail in Reculver Country Park (A Site of Special Scientific Interest). The plastic reinforces the ground. Grass grows back through the gaps.

Nice to see some accommodation for cycling as part of the road works on Newmarket Road - September 2003.
