152331Photo #152331Askam in Furness Cumbria . Ahhhhhhh a signed route Askam to Dalton #152330 . It starts off so promising heading towards Dalton. A nice path designated a shared use path and then this 1 METRE CYCLE LANE ON A 60 MPH ROAD . THERE'S ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE AS WELL YOU CAN HARDLY SEE IT. It would actually be safer and better without the cycle lane . I challenge any from @HighwaysEngland to cycle this and claim it's not terrifying. There's a far safer quieter and comfortable route by crossing the road a little further back toward Askam and joining the route past the Furness brick works and Chapel Hill Woods. See www.cyclestreets.net/journey/71774715/. Can @HighwaysEngland consider investing in improving this alternative route - signs, lighting, a better surface and negotiating with community to promote this alternative route rather than the death ride on the A595 twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1311338824262451203Cycleway:

151213Photo #151213Dog excrement has been bagged and hung up on a sign post at head level on the approach to the footbridge on the North side of the River Mersey. The excrement will be festering inside the bag waiting for someone to accidentally break the bag to release the obnoxious contents . The contents potential for harm will have multiplied many fold during it's enclosure . The dog walker would have been better using the stick an flick method allowing the offensive material to decompose naturally away from the path. Or even just leaving the mess on the path would have been a lot safer than leaving this unexploded turd bomb. Reported to Trafford Request ID:1826208

Location - goo.gl/maps/w3sL3CRSKht4QD7H9 Obstructions like this block anyone not using a standard bicycle from accessing the new bridge.
twitter.com/BeeUrmston/status/1281513195954483201
The proposals to replace this barrier are not inclusive and are inadequate for when the path becomes more popular such as at weekends and school holidays.
The spacing of bollards must meet the standard recommended in local transport note

From LTN 2/08 [pdf] www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/329150/ltn-2-08_Cycle_infrastructure_design.pdf
8.14.4 Bollards are the preferred method of access control for larger vehicles, spaced a minimum of 1.2 metres apart, preferably 1.5 metres. For an additional deterrent effect, they can be installed as two staggered rows with a minimum 1.2 metres between rows (see Figures 8.5 and 8.6). Bollards should ideally be placed at least 5 metres from any bend or junction, so that riders can approach them straight on. Bollards can be hazardous on unlit routes and at sites where forward visibility is restricted by the layout or by other users.

As can be seen on the google image (the bike parked next to the post outside Vapours) why not utilise the signpost for parking restrictions - all is needed is a stand as part of the post in the shape of a lower case h . In the short term relocate one of the stands next to the sign post.

114482Photo #114482Broadheath Trafford near Manchester. It appears someone has decided this barrier is too much in the current emergency #viralkindness. The rationalised barriers prevents motor cars passing but allows cycles pushchairs and wheelchairs through while socially distancing and avoiding the convoluted and complex chicane arrangement.

During this emergency would Broadheath community and @DunhamMasseyNT @SBResidentsWA14 @Serena_tc @AmyMWhyte consider removing ALL the horizontal barriers and most of the vertical ones on all the barriers on this estate ? Perhaps as an experiment to see if this could be permanent. Some vertical post barriers will be required to prevent motor car access. see also #101747 twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1247104310611259392

Overhanging on Kickety Brook path are obstructing the path at a dangerous eye level. At at least 3 locations to the East of the main A56. One of the branches has broken or is cut leaving a very dangerous point for gouging eyes.
Bizarrely the Trafford service request portal does not show this path (NCN route 62) as a right of way. Request ID:1532464 15/12/19
