Photo listing : route signs (problem)

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

For some reason the cycle route sign has been moved to a separate pole behind the one it was on (see #31604) and can't be seen clearly now.

The sign shows Marylebone 3/4 of a mile to the right - not great for those who don't realise that Marylebone station is right there in front of them.

Sign for a right turn on NCN route 4 - but in fact both the next two right turns are for NCN 4, in either direction. A common problem with this route in west Pembrokeshire.

This sign for NCN route 4 will have to be changed due to the new one-way system in Fishguard

Route sign on NCN route 4 - but according to OpenCycleMaps it goes straight ahead, not left to the A road.

The cycle route along the Whitemoss Avenue shared footway is signed into the park, including a rather steep bit of path at the corner (seen also in #107580).

Route signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout for the cycle route to Brancumhall, but the Health Centre pointed to is not the closest health centre to this location, and so could be confusing.

A new 'No Entry' sign for the resurfaced cycle off-ramp from Churchill Avenue at the Murray Roundabout, but no longer any signs for local routes 2 and 3. So close to the town centre, but no wayfinding.

To follow the 2014 Tour de France use the A61, it feels like this is being suggested to drivers.

Woodhouse Lane, Leeds.

Cycle route along a three lane urban highway 😱

The cycle route sign has been turned 90 degrees - it's for traffic heading west/to the right.

A damaged route sign for the cycle route to the City Centre, but the route is closed off due to the Sighthill regeneration project a short distance away.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

A turn from Alma Street at Kelham Island signed only with a Sustrans sticker, although continuing along the street ends up at the toucan crossing at Borough Bridge anyway.

A sticker for a turn on NCN627 at Kelham Island.

A sticker for NCN627 at Rialto, Kelham Island.

A sticker used to indicate the way of the riverside cycle route.

Was the budget for the Cobweb Bridge so tight there was no money left for a proper sign at the turn, hence the use of Sustrans stickers?

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

Allanton Drive is on the Govan-Cardonald Quietway, but which way do you turn at the next junction? The sign with the tiny writing at the junction (visible over the rear end of the van) says, but it can't be read when you need to select your ... [more]

A damaged directions sign at the path junction near Cromarty Crescent. The path to the right is unsurfaced.

Route sign at Beckton DLR station - no sign of NCN route 13 west towards the Isle of Dogs

The cycle maps in Cambridge's main cycle park are dated 2008. I'm sure it was agreed that City Rangers would post new maps when they were published by the council, but that seems to have fallen through the cracks.

Coach and Horses, Gloucester. The Blue Sign suggests left to Longford and Kingsholm, but that doesn't seem right judging by the map. This is Hare Lane and if you take everything out of the blue you will be made into an auld hare!

No longer just a footpath - this should be signed as a route from central Trumpington to the busway and Addenbrooke's

Sign directs the Bridgewater Way onto the right hand fork - which leads to some steps #88334. It is far more sensible to keep to the newly tarmacked towpath.

The sign for Little Horton and Marshfields on NCN66 is at odds with the one in the distance straight ahead (seen at #110463). Maybe you can go both ways.

The stainless steel sign for NCN66 at Bridge Street is very difficult to spot, and directs cyclists the wrong way down a one-way street.

A sign for NCN66 pointing in a different direction to the blue Sustrans arrow sticker.

Tiny cycle signs for Pontefract town centre on the A645 at Gillygate.

A close-up of the sign in #110976, showing what the tiny writing actually says. Although encouraging to see a Trans Pennine Trail sign that actually has destinations.

Route sign with tiny writing on the far side of the junction where a turn may need to be made. Luckily this is a low speed and low traffic road.

Cyclists to join the triple lane carriageway of Wakefield Road.

A sticker for NCN66 turning off the A63 ahead. A63, Knowsthorpe (England, UK)

Poor signage on NCN 68. Where the canal goes through the Foulridge Tunnel the route over the top is not obvious and several junctions are not signed.

Signs visible through the trees for various destinations not mentioned at the top of the ramp. Anyone getting this far probably already knows where they are going. Plus an awkward barrier to get around at the bottom of the steep and narrow ... [more]

The access ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal to the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, but nothing on the signpost to say so.

A route sign for NCN72 on Burgh Road, not facing on-coming cyclists from any direction, not visible from the junction, and not giving destinations or explaining what HCW is. According to the Sustrans website, NCN72 is now routed into Carlis ... [more]

A battered Sustrans sticker is all that is there to indicate which way to turn at the path junction at the top of the steps. Although OpenStreetMap shows NCN72 routed this way, checking the Sustrans website reveals that it is now routed via ... [more]

Welcome to the National Cycle Network! NCN routes 7 and 10 on the path to the left have no directional signage, just stickers, while the routes ahead - 7, 10 and not mentioned leading to 72 - have just a sign facing those coming from the pa ... [more]

It is important to read this sign - especially if you are hoping to ride along NCN route 78 to Fort William on a Sunday. Camusnagaul Ferry #83656 does to operate on Sundays and there are only 4 crossings/day on weekdays. The warning w ... [more]

Map of lakeside cycle route, Aix-les-Bains - this section is closed in winter, presumably because the pontoons are removed (short-sighted?)

Advance warning sticker for NCN67's right turn from the A642 at Bottomboat.

To get to Derby Road you need to cycle into a wall

'Except Cycles' option required for the one-way section of Lacy Street between Newton Street and Lacy Grove. Contraflow cycling could be facilitated on the carriageway if parking restrictions were introduced, or on the Eastern footway as th ... [more]

Despite there being the space to do something good, the i3 cycle route is signed along the narrow footway of New Street. The obstructive control cabinet at the pedestrian crossing makes it even more difficult to use. Not very innovative!

I don't think this sign is pointing the right way. The path could be better aligned with the road crossing.

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

Four ways, only two signposted, and a desire line becoming apparent.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath near the Falkirk Wheel, but which cycle route is it that ends here? NCN754 continues to Clydebank. The ramp to the right leads to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park.

A signpost within Palacerigg Country Park, but no mention of Cumbernauld's cycle route 2a to Abronhill which starts around here.

NCN route 50 near Stowe - but the signs say route 70 (which actually crosses the north of England)

Not only does the cycle route cross Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing, and not a toucan crossing with the extra call buttons, but the sign for the cycle route into East Kilbride is pointing the wrong way! There are no furth ... [more]

Why can't the corner be more rounded? What are the bollards for? Why isn't there a distance for the town centre? The cycle route doesn't even go as far as the town centre. It gives up on Queensway at #31505.

East Kilbride a quarter of a mile away? Only the very edge of town.

Anonymous route signs for the cycle route to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham, but nothing for the shared footway ahead.

Both East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn right after the underpass, but definitely not NCN route 3.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn left here, but only this tiny vandalised sign marks the way.

A vandalised sign for NCN756 in a non-standard format, and no dropped kerb to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and join the path.

NCN756 turns left to leave the railway path alignment, while the cycle route to Blantyre and Hamilton starts, but is only signed as going to East Mains. There's a sign for Hamilton up on Wilson Place.

The Stewartfield cycle route meets the cycle route along Stewartfield Way (connecting the National Museum of Rural Life to NCN756 at Kingsgate), but only directional signage for the latter.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. ... [more]

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 come out of the underpass and split to proceed in opposite directions. So I'd expect better signage than this!

A route sign that appears to have been twisted around, since it is facing the houses in Mount Cameron Drive North.

A sign for National Cycle Network Route 2, except it's actually for East Kilbride route 2, and doesn't clearly identify whether it is for the road on the right or the path just beyond it.

The 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs on this route are all facing across the carriageway instead of along it. So consistently that it looks like an installation problem rather than vandalism.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout, including some pointing up a flight of steps.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout. I can see a problem with the route to the Sports Centre, and I'm not sure the signs for the Health Centre are pointing the right way. The nearest health centre might be the Hunter Health Centre back in the ... [more]

A route sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route facing a grassy slope with no path across it. The access has been moved further west (see #107502).

Signs for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 pointing both left and right at the Westwood Hill junction. Maybe the one across the junction is for the right turn into Newlands Road and has got twisted around.

Rockhampton Avenue ends in a Fire Path with a rather messy gap between the kerb ridges. No cycle exemption from the 'No Entry' signs, and a route sign pointing right at the far side of the junction, when East Kilbride's cycle route 1 turns ... [more]

A damaged sign at the start of East Kilbride's local route 1 in Andrew Street. I think this was the only sign I saw with a blue background to the route number instead of an incorrect red background. No sign for the turn from the opposite ... [more]

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way. The canal can be reached via Farm Road heading into the distance on the right.

There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

NCN route 77 sign, only visible if you're not actually on route 77. Most cyclists presumably end up on the A85 dual-carriageway.

The Lade route goes right here but is signed to the left.

Incongruous: a small cycle route sign on primary roads with no cycle lanes.

The raised table here has been removed - and dropped kerbs placed further north at the junction and further south to provide a direct route into the cycle parking area at Cambridge North station. These rather over-bearing route signs no ... [more]

The sharrows mark route EV6 along the Danube - if you want the Stary Most bridge across the river you should keep slightly left - signs needed.

Some mistake - the road on the left leads to St Martin, Manaccan and Helford, the road to the right is just a loop that rejoins it in a few hundred metres. But the pub/restaurant sign is correct.

Tapton Terrace which is designated as part of the TPT into town centre but has no signs as an alternative route to Brimington Road. Road surface is poor.

Route that is not signed well along Tapton Terrace - poor road surface

Bridge over Rother from Crow Lane - no signage and poor surface.

Signpost at end of bridge over A61 - where do cyclists go - not clear?? See #10524
