85758Photo #85758There is a nasty, blind dog-leg on the Tesco Fulbourn path. I was hit, head on, by another rider as I came round this bend earlier this summer.

The path continues straight on, to the left (see lady just emerging on a bike), but visibility is blocked by the hedge in front.

There is also a path emerging from the back of Tesco car park, where the lady on the right is about to disappear. Visibility approaching this path is poor from the west, due to vegetation, and is non-existent from the east.

Both of these issues can be easily addressed.

1. Cut back the hedge in front to give clear visibility.
2. Re-align the path to give a smooth dog-leg instead of the very abrupt realignment currently present.
3. Re-locate the path into Tesco so that it is away from the corner (to the west 50-100m), and cut back the hedge to improve visibility.

Much improved bollard arrangement where Carter Bridge ramp joins Devonshire Road.

Personally I would have liked to see a centerline marked for 5m up the ramp to help warn of the bollard, but this arrangement is as clear as anyone could expect.

Mind you, people still ride the "wrong" side of the post,, like this guy going home from a fishing trip.

Technically a public footpath, as are almost all of Cambridge's traffic free cycle routes.

The bridge was closed for several months for re-painting. It is a shame that it was not widened or a parallel cycle bridge installed at the time.

The bridge is very narrow, far too narrow to pass, and it is very busy at peak hours with people both walking and cycling.

85578Photo #85578Child trailer on Gonville Place

Why would you want to reduce traffic on a road like this?

Gonville Place used to have cycle lanes but they were removed in order to create an additional traffic lane to allow more vehicles to queue at the Hills Rd and Mill Road junctions.
The result is a very hostile environment for cycling.
The City Deal proposes possible traffic controls on East Road, Mill Road and Hills Road. That would transform this busy street, back to a quiet avenue.
