109190Photo #109190'Except Cycles' option required for the one-way section of Lacy Street between Newton Street and Lacy Grove. Contraflow cycling could be facilitated on the carriageway if parking restrictions were introduced, or on the Eastern footway as this is hardly used. It would provide a legal way to access Cooper Street then get to the TPT through the estate.Route sign:

103930Photo #103930Touring family from Germany gets stuck once they reach Warrington Borough Council's barriers :-(

They made it to Liverpool with the help of locals however after visiting Ireland they used a van rather than the Trans-Pennine Trail to get from Liverpool to Hull on the return leg.

81187Photo #81187These bollards were supposed to be spaced 1.7m apart (for 1.5m clearance) but they've not been installed to this specification. The new wide waiting area was worth campaigning for - it's a vast improvement over the original 'S-bend' proposal that can be seen on pre-2016 streetview images, eg: goo.gl/maps/mkFvvFhUQkA2Road environment:

72087Photo #72087#space4parking on the footway by MMU's new Birley Fields development. Note the man in the white van carrying a fire extinguisher was genuinely loading but had to stop in the carriageway as all the loading bays were parked in. Also note the lack of safe #space4cycling - hopefully this will be fixed during CCAG2 as the rest of this road is one of its key routes.Obstruction:

34610Photo #34610A two way cycle route on the left, and a one way bus lane on the right. Buses enter this lane at speed from a 40mph dual carriageway. Cyclists heading towards the camera are supposed to ride near the white line, close to and unsegregated from oncoming buses. The cycle lane forms part of the TransPennineTrail NCN62 so is regularly used by cyclists who are unfamiliar with this arrangement.Road environment:

34603Photo #34603'How to restrict access to a cycle path' by RX51PXF. It was here for several hours, and there was plenty of space nearby if they wanted to be more considerate. Maybe the driver believed they had a 'right' to obstruct the pavement and dropped kerbs because they had 'paid road tax'.Obstruction:

34601Photo #34601Nice use of LED lights in the dotted white line for the advisory cycle lane. Can't understand why this advisory feature is only part time from 7am to 7pm - does anyone know if this is unique and/or legal ?Road environment:

34600Photo #34600Cycle parking at the southern end of Stretford arndale, next to St Matthew's church. 2 bikes can be locked to each stand, but they were installed far too close to the railings, so it's best if your bike has its own stand too.Cycle parking:

34599Photo #34599Cycle parking at Stretford Metrolink station. 5 well spaced stands allow for 10 bicycles to be parked in an area that has reasonable natural surveillance. All 4 lockers are empty as usual (there's a paid membership system, and you need to 'install' your bike vertically, risking both injury to the cyclist and damage to the bike).Cycle parking:

34598Photo #34598The Friends Meeting House does provide cycle parking stands on the far left of this picture. Unfortunately they are in a dark unfrequented area, and the limited natural surveillance is restricted further by the large 'advertising' board. The bicycle locked to the railings is in a much more secure position.Cycle parking:

34597Photo #34597Cycle parking at the Argos entrance to Stretford Arndale. These 3 stands should allow for 6 bicycles to be parked securely, but only 4 will fit here because the stands have been installed too close to each other. The stands are also approx 50m from the entrance door (and CCTV) so people often lock bikes to the bank's handrail, 5m from the entrance doors.Cycle parking:

34594Photo #34594Cycle parking at TMBC's Sale Waterside offices. Not sure what the bizarre design of stand is for, and I bet they cost more than standard sheffield stands. They're also installed a bit too close to the window - I hope they don't try to sue me for any damage to it!Cycle parking:

25198Photo #25198Road 'Safety' Partnership van chooses to block segregated cycle lane.
Then the partnership try to justify their actions saying they have the authority of the Chief Constable, an exemption to all prohibitions and restrictions, and they parked here as a 'safety precaution'.
Their statement makes me think they are only interested in the safety of themselves and other motor vehicles.
I can only assume that the safety of cyclists isn't important to them.
