[Image taken 9.8.21] Tanner's Moat/Wellington Row, York. Context see: #173062 and links. This is a busy area with works traffic (HGVs) and wheelchair users. I think the signage is clear and means people on cycles, foot and wheelchairs can … [more]

Chisholm Trail bridge construction during lockdown, there were a few workers here today.

Construction of the southern support for the Abbey Chesterton Bridge on the Chisholm Trail.

Construction of the northern support for the Abbey Chesterton Bridge on the Chisholm Trail.

The footway and cycleway remain open during Network Rail bridge works above Clyde Place.

A temporary cyclable route through the works during the widening of the A14 bridge. It is really good to have this, but it has required quite a bit of lobbying.

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.

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

The designated smoking area for the works.

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

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.

Polmadie Bridge being rebuilt.

Preliminary ground work for the Chisholm trail.

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

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

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

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 … [more]

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.

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 … [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.

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

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

Diversion for cyclists due to rebuilding the cycle track.

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

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

Cycle Lane Closed Cyclists merging from the left

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.

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 … [more]

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)

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.

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