At last, some actual cycle stands at Cambridge Rugby Club - see #38282 and #73767

Awkward cycle stands at Cambridge's miniature railway

Cycle Planter parking

There's always been a rough surface here (a busy route for cyclists to the West Cambridge site, less so for cars) - but it's really breaking up now.

Information on the Aurrigo autonomous vehicle trails on the West Cambridge site

Aurrigo autonomous vehicle on trial on the West Cambridge site - there was a human on board who seemed very ready to hit the brakes if needed.

Dismount and Use Footway ... Footpath Closed.... contradictory signs, in fact the only option really is to cross to the footway and cycleway across the road.

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park. There is no map, no signage for the thousands of people who move through/round/past the car park every day. There's a clear need. As evidenced by this ad hoc signage that has appeared. Scarborough Br ... [more]

The first of the new redmac cycle sections is done, but the transition to the carriageway is a bit odd.

Low-level, small, repeaters for bikes at each set of lights. They switch to green slightly before the main lights.

Carriageway is finished bar some utility covers not yet reinstated, but footways and the little bits of cycleway are mostly still to do.

There are too many places where you can see the lights for another crossing as well as the ones you need to see. I think it could lead to some incidents.

Although the temporary crossing lights are still in situ, it's the new ones integrated with the traffic control lights that are now operational. There are no easily-visible repeaters on the central islands, so you have to look to the side ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Tanner's Moat junction with Rougier Street, York. The crossing is a key route to/from the city walls, they rail station, hotels. It is massively oversubscribed (see: #166024). The pedestrian in a green top and black tr ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Monkgate, York. Cyclists must dismount but staff in cars (also patients/visitors in taxis) can drive into the site and park. And this is a health facility. Part of the NHS. The message given by the signs and the decisi ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Monkgate, York. Cyclists are asked to dismount - not only to reach the cycle parking in front of the building visible in the image, but also to reach the GP practice and other health facilities further into and at the ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Monkgate, York. Cyclists dismount signs at the vehicle entrance/exit to this GP practice and health centre. Other images this issue today see: #170530 and links. Other images today see: #170523 and links

[Image taken 21.6.21] Monkgate, York. Cyclists dismount signs at GP practice and other health facility. There's no drop kerb to access the pavement from the road. Other images this issue today see: #170531, #170532, #170533. Other images t ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Crichton Avenue/Burton Stone Lane, York. The two barricades (marked CYC - City of York Council) from: #170486 have been relocated to the side of the shared use route. They are now potential hazards. I arrived when an O ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Station Avenue/Station Road, York at the city walls. The scaffolding (see: #169848 and links) that restricted the flow of people - including people with cycles on the diversions from the floodworks in the city - search ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The barricade is now redundant. Ie it is no longer creating and protecting access to/from (see: #169993) the car park and the route to/from Scarborough Bridge. It is therefore a hazard, as are ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park, York. Uncontrolled plant growth makes this Sheffield (cycle parking) rack unusable. Extended caption on this issue see: #170507. Other images today see: #170523 and links

[Image taken 21.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The barricade that, I assume, was intended to create, define and protect an entrance to/exit from (see: #169993) the car park and the route to/from Scarborough Bridge, etc, is now redundant and ... [more]

[Image taken 21.6.21] Burton Stone Lane, York. Pothole someone has found a cone to put over. The lanes are narrow and drivers' speeds high. Damage to the tarmac exacerbates the issues and makes it less attractive to cycle here (and therefor ... [more]

[Image taken 22.6.21] Duncombe Place, Minster Yard, York. Permeable and emergency route obstructed, cycle lane (bi-directional) blocked by a Rentokil driver late afternoon. (The driver was not in the vehicle.) The vehicle created blind corn ... [more]

Why is construction of cycle path so badly designed? Why can't they make a slope? Will they treat motorized vehicle users so badly? https://t.co/INT96BN31z Needs a dropped kerb. Location estimated from other comments in the Twitter thre ... [more]

The cycle route through Robertson Park does not connect to anything outside the park. At this side it is the A8 Inchinnan Road.

The cycle route through Robertson Park.

A layout for learning to cycle in Robertson Park. The outdated cycle parking has been supplemented by some modern stands.

The cycle route through Robertson Park isn't the only way people want to cycle through the park.

The cycle route through Robertson Park is looking a little faded in places.

'No Cycling' on the narrow path next to Robertson Park. There is a parallel route through the park where cycling is permitted.

A suburban roundabout with twin lane entry points. Is this really appropriate for the area?

The end of McClue Avenue has been shorted and the area given over to parkland, but there's no proper dropped kerb to access the path to the left.

The 'Beware of Cycles' sign on Kirklandneuk Road is facing traffic leaving rather than joining Inchinnan Road.

'Beware of Cycles' on various roads joining Inchinnan Road. The cycle provision on the A8 Inchinnan Road appears to consist of nothing more than signs.

[Image taken 23.3.21] I'd say the cycle cut-through on Tanner's Moat, York is the hardest working bit of infrastructure in the city. It's oversubscribed. (See: #166027) As a regular user I thought I'd seen it all - drivers cutting through t ... [more]

  • Icon 170535 The traffic calming and widening measures are a good plan, and they should be made permanent without the temporary "covid-bollards". Currently the "bollarded" areas are not really usable as pedestrian pavements, nor are they accessible to cyclists. Cyclists are currently forced into the narrowed road together with motor-traffic. This is not safe for cyclists.
  • Icon 170510 Road surface marking needs to be added to the entrance to Luther Street to stop traffic trying to use it as a cut through then discovering it can't be done. This would significantly quieten the street traffic.
  • Icon 170509 No through road needs labelling as such to prevent traffic racing down Luther Street and doing a three point turn at the end.
  • Icon 170502 20mph and speed restriction pass the school area
  • Icon 170499 With so many communities within a short distance it should be a 40 mph road to encourage cycling. The added benefit of greater road safety for all road users.
  • Icon 170498 Lots of residential properties and businesses on this section of road makes it inappropriate to be national speed limit. It should be a 40mph speed limit for greater road safety for all road users.
  • Icon 170497 Reduce speed limit to 40 mph for the complete length of this road as dangerous and busy junction for vehicles let alone people on bikes.
  • Icon 170480 SIGNAGE for dog owners to keep their dogs on a lead. Horses should be in a field, not here. MORE DOG POO BINS!!
  • Icon 170479 Road surface broken up causing cyclists to swerve to avoid - from bottom of the hill, to the top.
  • Icon 170478 Current cyclehoops secured hangars in the street are quite insufficient. Numerous residents have been waiting for years for spots.
  • Icon 170387 Rat run for traffic from Northern Distributor.
  • Icon 170386 Rat run for traffic from the Northern Distributor road. School children need to cross and it is very busy. Very dangerous, lolly pop lady is not there at all the times that children need to cross.
