[Image taken 20.10.21] Waitrose, Foss Islands Way, York. No mention of the entrance, the cycle parking, the EV bays... But it is so far to the left and, on my visit, so obscured by vegetation - see: #175125 - I don't think many/anyone would ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Wellington Row junction with Tanner Row, York. This is part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. No way to find out who is responsible for this 'ghost' sign. Context see: #174812. All signs ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Wellington Row junction with Tanner Row, York. This is part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. Context and links see: #174805. What does "access" mean here? Is this sign for people on cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Wellington Row junction with Tanner Row, York. This is part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. But there is no clue as to why this sign is here, who could use it - there's no destination, ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Tanner Row, York. This is part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. Positive point: Trans Pennine Trail sticker. But what is the printed number 65? (Compare with the sticker in: #174811.) A ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Memorial Gardens, Leeman Road, York. For context see: #174805 and links.

[Image taken 11.10.21] Leeman Road, Memorial Gardens, York. If you happen upon this you don't know where it goes. (Where does it lead to if you follow the arrowed direction? What is in the other direction?) There is no clue which of the sev ... [more]

[Image taken 11.10.21] Leeman Road, Memorial Gardens, York. Cycle sign has identity and route number. Though no local info (Millennium Bridge, Rowntree Park in one direction or railway, Scarborough Bridge, for example, in the other). It see ... [more]

[Image taken 8.10.21] Terry Avenue, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] Cycle-specific signage. However, it fails because it is not route-/diversion-specific. There are two (that I know of) other long-term cycle diversions in place ... [more]

[Image taken 8.10.21] St Benedict Road junction with Upper Price Street, York. Signposting clearly aimed at cyclists. It is part of the year-long Clementhorpe floodworks diversion. But it is not route- or diversion- or direction- specific. ... [more]

A sign rendered unreadable by graffiti.

[Image taken 26.9.21] Frederic Street junction with Earlsborough Terrace, Marygate car park, York. If I come this way there is often someone who is lost/confused. Unsurprisingly. From afar your route looks obvious: #174421 so if you head le ... [more]

[Image taken 26.9.21] Skeldergate junction with Fetter Lane, York. Start or end of the Terry Avenue/Clementhorpe Flood Defences diversion. (See: #169586.) Too many signs. None says: 'Rowntree Park', or 'Millennium Bridge', ie the destinatio ... [more]

[Image taken 26.9.21] York: junction with St Martin's Lane, Trinity Lane, Bishophill Senior, Bishophill Junior. Non-descript junction with no diversion or repeater/confirmatory signage to help people wayfind. Yet this is no short-term, loca ... [more]

[UPDATE: see: #174192] [Image taken 19.9.21] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. NOTE: No streetview at this location. The greenery remains uncut despite it being reported. Original image this issue, this year: #171577 O ... [more]

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

The start of the railway path section of NCN7 to Loch Lomond at Smith Street. It used to start back at Meadow Road. #101427 views the site looking in the opposite direction. At least one of those signs is pointing the wrong way. Glasgow ... [more]

[Image taken 1.9.21] York rail station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] As per: #173827 the capital letters and hatching look as if this is not a permissible route. Yet the cycle parking is behind the white car in the backgrou ... [more]

[Image taken 30.8.21] Crichton Avenue, York. Just off the Foss Islands Way (see: #173657) is this junction. However, there is no sign for the Orbital Route (see: #173656 and links). During the covid-19 lockdown of 2020, and again today, I'v ... [more]

Junction on NCN7 for Partick to the left and City Centre to the right. I'm not so sure about Kelvingrove Park being to the left, since that way is just along the main road. Head right and leave NCN7 at Ferry Road for the West City Way route ... [more]

No sign here of a walking or cycling route to Cambridge North.

[Image taken 13.8.21] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. NOTE: No streetview at this location. Other image of this issue today: #173196 and links.

Signage as part of Leeds Core Cycle Network. Pointing in the wrong direction.

[Update: #172874] [Image taken 6.8.21] York. Between Esplanade car park and Leeman Road, York, parallel to one side of Memorial Gardens. There is no sign on Leeman Road directing pedestrians through Memorial Gardens see: #171581. This issue ... [more]

[Update 4.8.21. Mid-afternoon, the signage was still here, ie not signposting a diversion] [Update 3.8.21 three (redundant) cones were blocking the cycle parking further to the right of this spot.] [Friday 30.7.21. The signage was still red ... [more]

'End of cycle route' sign at Balshagray Lane. The roads beyond here are very hostile.

This is crazy - telling cyclists to turn right across the Cambridge ring road, rather than using the light-controlled crossing at the Mill Road junction.

This is crazy - telling cyclists to turn right across the Cambridge ring road, rather than using the light-controlled crossing at the Mill Road junction.

[Update: still uncut 4.8.21 see: #172822. I will chase it up.] [Image taken 8.7.21] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. NOTE: No streetview at this location. A recurring issue. This sign outside the Royal Mail sorting of ... [more]

One arm of this route sign is totally missing.

A route sign that has seen better days.

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park. There is no map, no signage for the thousands of people who move through/round/past the car park every day. There's a clear need. As evidenced by this ad hoc signage that has appeared. Scarborough Br ... [more]

A cycle route is signed through the narrow underpass between Dumbarton Road and the ground to the rear of Lennox Avenue. Pedestrians walking to Victoria Park would be well advised to ignore the signs and walk in the direction not signed ... [more]

Sign obscured by overgrown vegetation.

End of Cycle Route. Unclear which one.

The right-turn sign for NCN route 72 towards Vindolanda is missing.

Not especially well signed left turn on NCN route 68 towards Hadrian's Wall

The "Recommended Route for Cycling" sign can probably be taken down now the protected cycle route has been built on the opposite side of the road and the on-road cycle lanes removed.

The signs at the foot of the footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway. The direction sign is obscured by tree braches, and not visible if following the original Paisley to Glasgow cycle route (an important ... [more]

[Image taken 1.6.21] Marygate carpark, York. No signage for people on cycles. No maps. The hoardings block any views that might help someone orientate. I would feel unsafe here on foot, on my own, or with a dependant. See also: #169845. Oth ... [more]

[Image taken 1.6.21] Marygate carpark, York. Signage for pedestrians. No recognition of the importance of the route being diverted from for people on cycles. See also: #169845 and links

[Image taken 31.5.21] Skeldergate, York. This sign has appeared. I saw it for the first time today because I was looking for diversion signage before I got to: #169091. It's big but high up and, critically for me, it's generic. Hence my not ... [more]

[Image taken 29.5.21] Station Avenue/Station Road, York near the city walls. This sign seems at odds with that in: #169848. Also, people on cycles displaced from the riverside are pushing their cycles here, so it's not just pedestrians that ... [more]

[Image taken 29.5.21] Station Avenue/Station Road, York. People cycling, walking, wheelchairing in York this summer (and into next year) are being diverted from riverside routes due to flood works. The result is very many unsightly, unclea ... [more]

Hidden route signs on the Concorde Way, Bristol

Sign to the Bristol & Bath Railway Path - but the direct route is to the left up Pugs Lane

This sign, on NCN route 53 and Coventry Route 11 west from the city centre, has been turned 90° around.

The route sign should be pointing left for Coventry Route 1 to the city centre

A small route sign almost unreadable due to stickers (and appears not to mention the one route where there is a cycle facility), and a fallen diversion sign blocking the gutter. Providing a path in the park to connect to the segregated c ... [more]

A discreet and unclear marker - the bridleway from Thriplow to Heathfield goes to the left.

The 'End of Route' sign is still up, even though the Wallacewell Road cycle lanes were extended to the end of the road some time ago. The cycle lanes recommence right after the roundabout.

[Update see: #169821] [Image taken 18.5.21] Clifton Moor, near retail outlets, Stirling Road, York. This direction sign to Wigginton has been knocked. Now out of position it's confusing rather than instructional or inspirational.

Half-hidden signs for NCN route 1 in Burnham Market

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. Map at right angles – not easy to consult. Nowhere for cyclists to secure or lean cycles while they look at the map. (This issue see also: #168889.) See also: #169084 and links

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. [No streetview at this location.] There is no reference to ‘Leeman Road’ as given on the cycle map as an alternative for when the gates to/from the station here ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. [No streetview at this location.] The largest text clearly suggests the information is only for, relevant to, people cycling yet the bridge was replaced to make it ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. [No streetview at this location.] Providing a map is a good idea. However, the map is aimed at people on cycles. It covers the whole city. The detail of the city ce ... [more]

[Image taken 14.5.21] Rail station, Scarborough Bridge exit/entrance, York. [No streetview at this location.] Two detailed signs. No help if you get to the rail station between 22.30 and 05.30 when the gates are locked. Neither includes the ... [more]

[Image taken 11.5.21] Marygate car park, York. It This sign is not clear - does it refer to the inside or outside of the car park. Neither was possible today. It's not possible to exit the car park if you follow the 'edge'. There were peopl ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Marygate car park, York. There were NO signs warning people that the route was limited to the one between the rail line and edge of the car park. Many users of this route do not want to put themselves at risk of or inc ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. The sign just visible on the lamppost where a track joins the road: #168840 is helpful. On the road, even if you get this far, there is no indication there’s any reason other than for a service ve ... [more]

Of course it's more important to have a statutory lawyer's notice about trespass on the busway than a usable sign for the National Cycle Network.

Cycle route sign well after cyclists need to have turned left - and it's hidden by the Caution - Bollards sign which isn't needed as only qualified bus drivers use this road. The route sign needs moving to where cyclists have to turn left.

Sign for the National Byway west from Ely - but there's no safe crossing of the A10

Fallen route sign alongside the Jordanhill Nature Trail at Scotstoun Sports Centre.

Not sure why I'd go to the left to get to Addenbrooke's Hospital when there's a decent direct route just to the right.

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. On the north side of the 'Tesco' roundabout there is no sign for people on foot or cycles to show where this route goes or the distances to the destinations. This reduces the likelihood of some ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Crossing on south side of Tesco roundabout, Clifton Moor Gate, York (see caption: #167812). Thanks to the dense network of offroad, segregated ped-cycle routes, this is motor traffic-dominated environment is quite perm ... [more]

Crossing to Lowestoft station, shared-use footway and route signs - it's considerably more than 1 mile to Yarmouth though!

Badly placed left-turn sign on NCN routes 12 and 57 - by the time you see it, you've missed the turn.

The signs for the Forth & Clyde Canal diversion (see #155655) are no longer pointing the correct ways.

NCN route 34 to the right, link to NCN route 2 to the left - unsigned, for some reason.

No change to the diversion signs in #95364 and #95363.

If that's the sign to declare the path ahead closed, it's no use lying face down.

I have no idea how someone managed to drive into that route sign, but it needs straightening.

Signs on Meden Trail, Pleasley Vale. Can never really understand these signs as says Pleasley to the right, but it points to a footpath over a field that starts with a stile.

As usual, there's no Except Cyclists plate on the route ahead which leads to central Cambridge.

Permanent route signs and temporary diversion signs relating to the Stockingfield canal path closure, but who would know? The temporary diversion signs should be yellow. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfield Junction, but only to ... [more]

Bent signpost possibly caused by a passing high sided vehicle such as a van being driven without sufficient attention.
