Photo listing : general sign/notices (problem)

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

The Silver Street bus gate is now operational full time in both directions - so Cambridgeshire County Council has closed the left-turn lane on Queen's Road. So cyclists (who are allowed to turn left) are forced into what is now a single nar ... [more]

Pop-up fall-down signage for this Covid-19 closure to motor traffic

Link from Walton Well Road to the rear of Oxford station - this is the only reference to the gates being closed at night.

I've no idea what this sign refers to - the cycle route certainly continues along the Botley Road.

Here we go again... the point of the modal filter is that Bateman St is not closed, it is very much open except at one point to motor vehicles - but Cambridgeshire's highways department can't be expected to grasp that.

cyclists can ride on the busway as far as the roundabout, but no further. Why?

Cyclists can ride on the busway this far but no further. Why?

Cyclists Dismount sign illustrates just how poor the new cycleway design is. Totally unnecessary since the adjacent busway only takes 4 buses per hour - if only cyclists were allowed to use it.

Cyclists Beware DO NOT UNDERTAKE Sign that tries to place the responsibility for the turning lorries on the cyclists.

Rather unofficial-looking 'Dual use' sign

Missing sign to turn right

Missing sign for left turn

A badly placed sign put in the middle of the footway where it will be an obstruction to pedestrians. It could easily have been put against the low wall on the left edge. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/?id=0 ... [more]

This is the covid 19 sign telling cyclists they should dismount. On an A road (A183 in Whitburn). Council logo on so my council tax is being wasted on this. I feel an email to a councillor coming on https://t.co/xgMC3dh2Dm

A routinely ignored No access sign.

The new 'Dutch-style' Fendon Road roundabout - the yellow-and-black sign should say clearly 'Drivers Give Way etc' and not be off to the left of the cycle and pedestrian sections.

Classic cylephobic Health and Safety nonsense.

Shared-use footway with segregated footway sign - wrong! And why does it not begin until this point?

The No Cycling sign has beem turned 180 degrees - though in fact there'd be no problem cycling on this paved path.

NO, Cumbria Council, you do not tell cyclists to dismount when the cycle lane is closed. You might put up a sign warning drivers that cyclists may be merging into the traffic.

Cyclists are supposed to dismount but drivers are not on this private road (a through route for pedestrians and cyclists only)

No Cycling on this section of NCN route 6 in Kendal !

Cyclists Dismount sign on what is now NCN route 6 in Kendal !

Annoying End of Route sign, particularly if you actually wanted to follow NCN route 6 somewhere worthwhile - obviously the sign should just tell cyclists to continue across the zebra crossing.

This very useful link needs signing for cycling at both ends.

Cycle parking and annoying notice - do drivers have to get out and push their cars?

End of Route sign on the Trans Pennine Trail (NCN route 65) - in fact it just rejoins the road through Riccall.

I have no idea why there's an End of Route sign here, the Trans Pennine Trail (NCN route 65) continues ahead.

Very odd to have a shared space sign in this direction - it's a road, quite simply.

Just a hundred metres of cycleway or shared-use needed to link with the riverside cycleway

Please dismount for the freshly laid 10 metres of straight tarmac that has recently been laid. What is this pointlessness? @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/q8wMpCpnXE

The signs say mandatory right turn, but the cycleway on Sauchiehall Street is two-way, so cycles should be exempted. The signs should also be 'mandatory right turn ahead' to diagram 609, due to their position in relation to the junction.

The dead-end road is narrowed to a single lane here, but they still felt it necessary to put up Cyclists Dismount signs.

Plan of West Suffolk College, showing huge areas of car parking and a few cycle stands.

Sign to discourage people going from cutting across the grass from the pavement

After a week, the contraflow cycle lane through the Histon Road roadworks is still marked as Road Closed. Why does the county council always fail to take cycling seriously?

Except Cycling plate needed on the dead end sign

This road is contraflow for cycling but is incorrectly signed as one way at this point.

Awful signage - the street is open. Need to make clear that businesses are open.

Awful signage - the street is open. Need to make clear that businesses are open.

The usual Road Closed sign - but provision has been made for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists.

There will be roadworks from here south along the Histon Road for the next year - as promised, cycling has been maintained in both directions, but you wouldn't know it from the totally car-focussed signage.

There will be roadworks on Histon Road for the next year - as promised there is a contraflow (southbound) cycleway, but all the signs ignore the existence of cyclists.

There will be roadworks on Histon Road for the next year - this road sign wrongly shows that traffic can't turn in to Warwick Road or Gilbert Road.

This section of Bishopthorpe Road has been closed to southbound traffic except for cycles to allow space for social distancing by pedestrians. So where is the Except Cycles sign?

The counter at the Anderston Bridge appears to have been abandoned.

Ashton on Mersey, Sale, Trafford. A new sign for pedestrians going to the school but the warning sign for motorists is obscured.

Sign showing that the grass is all shared-use. Not quite clear what this is for. Also points away from the road so can't be seen.

Shared-Use sign - but at the junction with Shelford Road (where the bus is) there's an End of Cycle Route sign. Typical.

Sign as part of the pop-up covid-19 cycle lane on the A56 in Trafford. Why?

Another pointless sign - there's no reason for the cycleway not to continue to the end of the road.

There's no signage at all for the cycle link that cuts left before the traffic lights and the busway

Another day another stupid Cyclists Dismount sign - some lawyer must think it's logical to reach a cycleway and dismount, but no-one else will.

Predictably enough, the road was not actually closed to pedestrians or cyclists.

Strange to install steelwork that's pretty useless except for cycle parking, and then plaster No Cycling stickers on them.

Dead End sign - though it continues as a byway and then a bridleway

Dead end for cars (cut off by the former A14) but not for pedestrians or dismounted cyclists.

Errm right - pointless Cyclists Dismount sign lost in the undergrowth at Nokia's office, Milton

There could be an Except Cycles exemption plate here

There could be an Except Cycles exemption plate here

Supposedly 'improved for walkers and riders' by Cambridgeshire County Council. Not exactly a commuting route, is it?

Eddington fantasy

Went out for an easy ride, found the least welcoming village in Cambridgeshire... https://t.co/ogAaRXyusv A follow up story from Cambridge News: https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/cambridge-news/ridiculous-sign-trying-stop-cyclists-1 ... [more]

Altrincham Trafford near Manchester. Except Cycles sign needed here .

Kein Radweg vorhanden. Straße zu schmal und stark befahren. Trotz Gefahr immer noch Tempo 50. Tempo 30 an der Schule nur temporär. Unbedingt Tempo 30 ab der Einmündung Saliterstraße.

Einmündung Simon-Baumann-Str. in Ruderatshofener Str. Simon-Baumann Straße ist Tempo 30 und in beide Richtungen befahrbar. Tempo 30 Schild fehlt.

Nonsense sign at the exit from Eddington - there are shared-use routes left and right beside Madingley Road and also on the far side into the university's West Cambridge site.

An obvious link from Lolworth and the A1307 to Swavesey, but visitors are clearly not wanted.

The No Cycling sign should be beyond the turning to the left.

Sign points wrong way It is 90 degrees wrong.

Just out of sight is a No Motor Vehicles sign, but there's no reason to stop cyclists coming this way (even though they probably won't manage to cycle up the very steep narrow lane).

This is definitely NOT the wheelchair access to the southbound platform at Chirk

Bizarre signage where a railing has been removed.

Welcome to the Fallowfield Diversion route. Would you use this unlit and muddy underpass at night?

This dark, unlit, narrow and filthy passageway with bollards at each end is on the Fallowfield Loop diversion. Would you use this at night?

This popular walking and cycling route, which serves as an alternate route to the very busy main road, is dark and uninviting at night. There are streetlamps that do not appear to be the council's responsibility, and every one is dead. ... [more]

No Entry Except Buses - no mention of bikes at this rising bollard, but thankfully they're using it anyway.

Does there really need to be a cycling ban on Shepherd's Place in this day and age?

The 'No Through Road' sign should have been fitted with an 'except cycles' plate when the Hopehill Road closure was opened up to cycling (in background and at #108226).

@tcornwallis @camcycle The third one is real. Used for electric works along a cycle route that follows the guided busway. (NCN 51) https://t.co/RNupuUl73e For context see third photo in https://twitter.com/camcycle/status/121558118632565 ... [more]

Extremely low headroom on this former canal tunnel makes cycling here a risky prospect.

'No Through Road' signs that need 'except cycles' plates, since the other end of the road is open to cycle access (see #113020).

'Cyclists Dismount' at the footbridge across the motorway connecting Queenslie Industrial Estate and the Fort shopping centre.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, unusually in mixed upper and lower case, at the entrance to Robroyston station car park, suggesting the footway from #112818 is indeed shared-use. For those not on the footway, a mandatory tour of the car park ... [more]

A cover on one of the traffic signals at the Robroyston motorway junction sliproad, even though the toucan crossing is working and uncovered.

Another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign in Thorne.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign for a small bridge in the shared-use path alongside the canal in Thorne.

A banner promoting some aspect of cycling, but since part of it has fallen down, the message is lost.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the same pole as a sign saying cycling is allowed. Are cyclists only meant to dismount to go around the corner then remount?

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign with no obvious reason why dismounting is advised. Maybe cyclists should join the carriageway here.

Unnecessary No Cycling sign by the yacht harbour of Nueva Palmira, Uruguay

A 'cycles only' sign halfway along Cardonald Drive. Not complied with or enforced.

No idea what this sign is doing here - as the painted marking makes clear, this is a shared-use cycle route.

A dead end for cars, perhaps, but not for cyclists.

The irony of this sign is that behind me, when I took it, were several giant fairground rides blocking about half the width of the pedestrianised street. What's the objection to people scooting along? How short-sighted of Bolton Council.
