111904Photo #111904Shared Use Bicycle and Pedestrian Traffic Light Crossing in St Oswald's Road. Photo taken from Sandhurst Road across the road is Sandhurst Lane which does not have a Shared Use Bicycle and Pedestrian Traffic Crossing or Traffic Calming. Some cars and vans go too fast turning left from St Oswald's Road when they should give priority to people crossing the road (Sandhurst Lane). Some cars on Sandhurst Lane turning left onto St Oswald's Road only look right but not left.Cycleway:

111892Photo #111892A Wee sign telling people about Air Pollution. On the Middle of a post on the Shared Use Path. Priory Road is an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) which sign does not say. It does mention Bicycles and Walking. "Pollution Fact #1 Pollution builds up inside cars. Cyclists and walkers often breathe cleaner air than drivers."

111848Photo #111848Red Alert! Red Shared Space Sign. The space of the road is supposed to be shared Cars/Bicycles/Pedestrians and 20mph upper speed limit in the upper part of Commercial Road. Maybe the vulnerable road user on a Bicycle or on Foot can find the area to be daunting, if motorists are aggressive then it can be dangerous. Red for Danger! The Shared Use Bicycle/Foot Traffic Lights is in front of the Red Sign by Gloucester Docks.General sign/notice:

111555Photo #111555Seen from the Bicycle Saddle this beautiful Maple in Deans Way. This Street has an official 20mph Limit as well as Traffic Calming. The Traffic Calming reduces Rat Run car use making the Street Safer for Cycling. The streets in Kingsholm are still littered with cars as the parking has not yet been reduced.Road environment:

111544Photo #111544Dangerous Cycleway Design forcing the person on a Bicycle into the path of the prevailing traffic. The Zebra Crossing has been built out for Pedestrian safety yet adversely comprises the Cyclists safety. The SLOW road paint is where the person on a Bicycle would have made an awkward turn onto the carriageway just in front of the Zebra Crossing. Some people on Bicycles get trapped by the sharp corner in the kerb forcing them to stop by before moving out.Road environment:

111542Photo #111542Here there is road paint which shows the Bicycle Lane marking end yet the kerbs allow for Bicycles to turn left from Kingsholm Road into Sandhurst Road. These Hatching Diagonal Lines are more for the errant motorists which are inclined to park in an area used by people on Bicycles. Sandhurst Road can be accessed by Bicycle in all directions whilst cars have a No Entry Sign with cars only allowed to turn out into Kingsholm Road. A person on a Bicycle turning left here can avoid the dangerous Roundabout/Traffic Circle at the end of Kingsholm Road. The Traffic Circle has Kingsholm Road/St Oswald's Road/Tewkesbury Road and Estcourt Road with heavy traffic. The Person on a Bicycle can use the Shared Use Bicycle Traffic Lights in St Oswald's Road and can then use the Shared Use Bicycle and Footpath into Tewkesbury Road.Cycleway:

111534Photo #111534Estcourt Road has some Cycletracks from the Inter War Era. They could be updated into proper Dutch Style Segregated Bicycle Paths. Here is the Shared Use Bicycle and Footpath. The work to improve the Crossings with Safe to use at the busiest junctions Traffic Lights at the Traffic Circles/Roundabouts at either end of Estcourt Road is very much needed as the Crossings are dangerous.Cycleway:

105151Photo #105151This sign is located on Horsefair Lane in Newent on the traject of the Newent Cycle Loop. It informs people using motorised road vehicles that, "This is NOT an empty road." Alongside the roadside greenery there are the stark red warnings of animals and people that are likely to be about, adults and children walking, deer, sheep, someone on a bicycle, a tractor, a horse and rider and a wild boar. These images in red of wildlife and people have the red letter caption, "I CARE DO YOU?"
Underneath there is a family group with the black letter caption, "WE WALK HERE."

On the left is the Bicycle Counter next to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

105050Photo #105050Utterly ridiculous sign for people using bicycles on the Bicycle Path. It is not clever to have End of Route when the Bicycle Path carries onwards. Likewise the Cyclists Dismount sign is also silly as the side road is seldom used and is gated for a warehouse. This is Gavel Way in the area of the former Gloucester Cattle Market. The Bicycle Path is protected here which is good but the priority over the side streets is not given which is bad in terms of design. To compare the Netherlands, which would have priority for people on Bicycles and road vehicles turning into the side street would have to be ready to stop for the person using the bicycle crossing over the side street.General sign/notice:
