Photo listing : general sign/notices (problem)

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

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange - cyclists are told to dismount to cross to the station, and there's no indication at all that ... [more]

Poorly signed No Entry in Corfu - it seems to only operate from 0730 to 1730, when coaches are arriving at the Achilleion Palace. In any case an exemption for cycling would be good.

Huge 'No Cycling' and 'No Pedestrians' signs next to the Redwood Drive shared footway. What is actually meant is that the Glasgow Southern Orbital road beyond the junction is restricted.

The 'Cycles Only' sign at the start of the cycle track at the Righead Roundabout on Murrayhill has been facing the wrong way for years.

Despite the 'No Smoking' signs with the cycle shelters, this 'Designated Smoking Area' sign is pointing right at the cycle shelters.

Poor capitalisation on road sign. No sign for East Kilbride cycle route 2.

A 'No Through Road' sign on East Kilbride's cycle route 1, and no destination signage for the Mossneuk cycle route diverging to the right (see #31501). Why doesn't it go all the way to Hairmyres Hospital?

Clear signage for the Dollan Aqua Centre, but nothing in either direction for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 which turns here.

Cyclists should dismount here, to reach the stands visible in the background - obviously, because that's better than car drivers having to pay attention.

The prohibited turn sign in Abbotsford Road doesn't exempt cycling, even though the sign in Chalmers Street says 'No Motor Vehicles'.

Through motor traffic has been removed from Hume Street by a road closure by bollards next to the low bridge. However the Chalmers Street side of Hume Street has been turned into a taxi storage area with conflicting signage and road mark ... [more]

The signs used on Hume Street are 'No Motor Vehicles' signs yet the plates below the signs and the prohibited turn signs say 'No vehicles except for taxis'. Is cycling allowed, and if not why not?

There is no justification at all for a Cyclists Dismount sign here - but it's only National Cycle Network route 1, why would anyone care?

Photo ID is no longer needed to pass through Dundee port on NCN route 1.

Cycle route parallel to the railway from Dundee station - SLOW because of course drivers have to reverse across the cycleway.

lost in sustranslation...

Is a 'No Cling' sign likely to be legally enforceable?

No idea why there's a No Cycling sign on this bridge - it's definitely a cycle route.

Oh look, new signs from @ChelmsCouncil to show how unwelcoming they are if you cycle to the city centre. One to add to my new blog. https://t.co/lqLuSaHTgJ

Don't just put up an End of Shared Use sign - fix the path!

It's not a dead end for cyclists, in fact I don't think there's a physical barrier to cars.

Sudden end of cycleway, Bratislava - Cyclists Dismount

I hope this means that the off-road cycle way is closed rather than that cycling is not allowed on the road.

Bratislava's riverside route currently just ends here, although in fact the embankment is perfectly cycleable and people do keep going.

Instructions for the Bajk bikesharing scheme in Bratislava - no map of other stations, unfortunately, although there must be one on the app.

'This cycle rack is to be deliberately left empty' ?

No Through Road to Fosse Way - only true for motor vehicles, but of course that's all highway engineers are concerned with.

No Through Road to Fosse Way - only true for motor vehicles, but of course that's all highway engineers are concerned with.

No Vehicles on this street in central Daventry - NCN route 50, though you wouldn't know it.

As usual they were happy to wave cyclists (and pedestrians) through the road 'closure'.

Typical British provision - they can put in a reasonably expensive bridge and do nothing to improve access, but can still waste money on totally pointless signs like this.

End of Cycle Way sign between two sections of shared-use path...and it's big enough for drivers to read at 60mph. What is the point...? Ed (simon): It might be due to the comment in #53964?

Yet another pointless End of Cycle Route sign where the segregated cycleway switches to shared-use provision.

This strange mix of shared use and no cycling on the same pole is still here at the end of 2018. See #28576.

'use bike racks provided'... I couldn't see any.

A dangerous toucan crossing near Saddle junction. The button on the right controls the first carriageway, but you have to stop in the island and press another button to stop traffic in the other carriageway. The crossing looks as though t ... [more]

A useful link south currently made illegal by the signage. Potential for slight widening by removing a metre of the allotment land, although there's enough room anyway.

End of Cycle Route sign prevents cycling between this cycle path and the cycle path at the bottom of the ramp/steps! Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom)

The Pedestrian Zone sign seems bizarre, but the road to the right would be traffic-free if the rising bollards were working.

Kilkenny ring road, cycle track comes to an end, but there’s a narrow footway on the bridge.

Motorists may whinge about the toll, but at least they are actually permitted to use the Mersey Gateway bridge.

Share the space 😱

End of Cycle Route/Cyclists Dismount sign Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) The council had recently started using "Cyclists rejoin carriageway" signs, but clearly ran out and went back to meaningless end of ... [more]

End of Cycle Route/Cyclists Dismount sign on Lister Road Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) If only the shared use path connected with the cycle track on Wella Road...

Inexplicable No Cycling sign by the Ark (citadel) of Bukhara

The No Cycling sign on the obvious route through the centre of Bukhara is generally ignored, as it should be.

Non highways compliant signs near a private school.

St Faith’s is a school. If they want to introduce a one-way system they should apply to Cambridgeshire Highway Authority and that will be considered by the democratic process.

strange "END" sign painted on the road. The road ends here for cars, but the cycleway continues over the canal bridge.

No Idling Kids breath here

Anti ‘gentrification’ poster which shows the fading yarn bombed railings on Mill Road bridge with text overlaid: Make Romsey Shit again but see #102589.

One Way, Dead End ?? Actually, TfL, it's a through road.

Cyclists Dismount sign at the top of Holland Walk, no dropped kerb or obvious way to continue.

Hi @EastRenCouncil , could you arrange to have this traffic information sign repositioned so that it doesn't block the cycle lane for the next 6 weeks? Its current position is creating conflict between people cycling and buses/cars etc. T ... [more]

Cycle lanes and centreline need repainting

Very odd to have a Closed to Through Traffic sign at the closed end of a dead-end road - there's access for bikes, but the road isn't closed to them anyway.

No, Cranmer Road is not closed - this is the only access to a dead-end road, and there's plenty of room for bikes and indeed cars too.

Road closure - with No Motor Vehicles except for access signs - not sure how that works!

Failed sign

@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. https://t.co/uMC0StC ... [more]

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

Rant at ‘cyclists’ who are ‘blocking’ the ‘entire pavement’ and a request to use racks 300 yards away. The challenge here is to change some of the residents' parking spaces to accommodate cycles.

If there really is a safety reason why cyclists can not be exempt from this No Entry sign in Leuven, Belgium, couldn't a cycle route be created to the right of the flower bed? See #101898 and #101899

Whoops - route LF5 goes off to the right here, despite the sign this is for pedestrians (and horses) only.

An advisory 'NO CYCLING' sign on NCN51 through Central Milton Keynes. Cycling is not prohibited here, if it were then the round no cycling sign would have been used. What this demonstrates is the lack of a sign to suggest that cycles should ... [more]

End of Cycleway sign in Rouen, even though the markings clearly continue.

They have annoying false End of Cycleway signs in France too.

End of Cycleway Ahead, possibly.

Chapel Road contraflow opportunity for cyclists. "Except Cyclists" sign required underneath. Warning signs required and road layout change signs required on the traffic flow side. This may require a TRO (ideally on an area wide basis) whic ... [more]

Sale Trafford . A contraflow cycling facility required here

This should actually be a Dead End sogn.

Arrow in the opposite direction to the one just up the lane...

These look like one-way markings but they can be misleading.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

No Cycling in the High Street, 11am to 4pm. Not strictly observed.

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

No Cycling sign, in principle, but cars can use this road?

Just another Cyclists Dismount sign, when what is needed is an indication that the cycle route switches to the other side of the road here.

Just another Cyclists Dismount sign, when what is needed is an indication that the cycle route switches to the other side of the road here.

I think the sign reads Cycle Track - Look Both Ways

No Motor Vehicles AND No Cycling - is that really what they meant?

Just 50m of cycle contraflow needed here (and the left-turn sign seems to have been turned around).

Road closure ahead - so of course there should be an Except Cyclists plate on the sign.

On this side of the roundabout there's a Cyclists Dismount sign, on the other side is an End of Route sign - can't anyone think these things through consistently?

This is definitely not the end of the cycle route, but the people who put these signs up don't seem to care.

No Entry Except Buses sign should also read 'and Cycles', of course.

No Vehicles, No Cycles signs on NCN route 13 in central Thetford - or do they imagine that this is a Cycles permitted sign?

Typical - rather than just 'End of Cycleway' there should be a cycleway arrow to the right.

No Parking for Cyclists sign - what I think it means is no parking of cars used to bring bikes to Rutland Water.

North end of the diverted section of the cycle route around Rutland Water - gates AND pointless Cyclists Dismount signs!

Perhaps the Cyclists Dismount sign is for cyclists going in the other direction, but it's still one of those negative things that make cycling seem dangerous and complicated.

Slow - Steep Hill! Are you wearing your helmet? The sort of nonense you get when a water company builds cycle infrastructure.

Gates and Cyclists Dismount sign to cross a very minor dead-end road. Ridiculou, but that's what happens when cycle routes are installed by a water company.

Cattle grid - another absurd reason to tell cylists to dismount. What happens when a water company creates cycle infratrusture.

Steep hill - Slow! Are you wearing your helmet? - One of many annoying signs around Rutland Water - what you get when cycle routes are designed by a water company.
