59033Photo #59033Segregated cycle path along Southsea sea front. Good in that it is segregated from the road and inside the parking, with a separating zone; less good in that it is too narrow for a two way track.Cycleway:

56134Photo #56134This image shows how far a cyclist joining the Guided Busway path from the Primrose Lane development in Impington has to protrude into the path to be able to see clearly cyclists heading towards Oakington, because of the noise barrier. (See also #56132 and #56133)Cycleway:

53108Photo #53108The right way to deal with closure of a cycle lane for roadworks - rather than the usual "Cyclists Dismount". Note that the smaller sign behind instructs drivers not to overtake cyclists because of narrow lanes. (Although not entirely clear in this shot pedestrians are diverted into the cycle lane, hence the need to divert cyclists into the general traffic lane.)Roadworks:

49561Photo #49561This sign indicates a shared use cycle path but is located just where it stops being shared use. The sign behind it (facing the other way,see #19719) says Cyclists Dismount - just at the start of the cycle route. So clearly these signs are both facing the wrong way.Cycleway:

19448Photo #19448Dropped kerb provides access to cycleway (now also the Guided Busway maintenance track).

And why couldn't the posts to prevent motor vehicles accessing the cycleway have been placed where the dropped kerb is located (to allow authorised vehicles access), thus causing minimal impediment to cyclists?
