Cambridge Congestion, Saturday.

[Image taken 27.11.22] Burton Stone Lane (northbound), York. The temporary A-board duplicates the high level (too high?) permanent sign on the other side of the road: Priority over oncoming vehicles. It creates an actual pavement width of 8 ... [more]

[Image taken 27.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York. Moved bus stop has unsightly temporary barricading which it not doing its job but is creating a substantial trip hazard for people waiting/alighting. Overview of the measures intended to calm ... [more]

Near the start of the Vennbahn, one of Europe's best railtrails (mostly along the German-Belgium border)

[Image taken 27.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, looking southbound, York. Actual pavement width 105cm. To get the usable width you subtract 20cm from the kerb side ie 85cm. Motorists speed along here. The pedestrian experience is unpleasant at be ... [more]

[Image taken 27.11.22] Duncombe Barracks, Burton Stone Lane, York. Good practice: the hoardings are informative and contribute positively to the streetscape. Context and links: #188025.

[Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace (looking southbound), York. Scaffolding on no 6. Closeup of this hazard for all pavement users. The apex is at my height – around 5ft.

[Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace (looking southbound), York. Scaffolding on no 6. Note the light. But – you wouldn’t be expecting a pavement to be completely obstructed. And if you have no or only limited sight? In any case every on ... [more]

[Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace (looking northbound), York. Scaffolding on no 6. No ‘padding’ (protection) for pedestrians on the uprights, no contrasting colour on the bars, and cross bracing that completely obstructs the pavement ... [more]

[Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace (looking northbound), York. Scaffolding on no 2. Close up – note the ‘padding’. Note the vibrant colour of the padding. Note there is no cross bracing and therefore no obstruction at head height. O ... [more]

I'm not sure what this means - cyclist? pedestrian?

Cycle route signs, Aspremont

20km/h play street, supposedly, on the main road through Aspremont

Modal filter above Nice

Dead End, No Powered Two-wheelers - ie it's actually a through route for cyclists and pedestrians

The track from Levens to Aspremont keeps left here

[Image is Street View from August 2019] Hoardings on Station Road, junction with Rougier Street, York. This is a key route into York from the station. This makes it one of the first but also last views of the city visitors will have. The ho ... [more]

[NOTE: Riding Burton Stone Lane southbound at lunchtime on 21.11.22, ie in the opposite direction to the photo in this image, I realised a driver was trying to beat me to the new measures. Motorists will want to get there before me - or any ... [more]

It is not uncommon in this area to see people walking down the middle of the street. Cars are stored on the pavements for the full length of the street on both sides, so what are folk to do? ... [more]

Nowhere for bikes to park in Romsey!

Shared use alongside Green End Road

This could be reworked significantly to have a road layout involving Dutch-style cycle tracks.

Green End Road, Cambridge Video of cycling along here in 2022:

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway. Update 2022: See #188011 where dropped kerbs have been provided.

Photographed a bike rail I quite liked when in Gdańsk

Signpost on the "Thicket Path" between St Ives and Houghton, stating "considerate cycling welcomed". This confirms that cycling is permitted despite the absence of the usual "Shared route for pedal cycles and pedestrians only" signs. Se ... [more]

  • Icon 187869 Here is the daily school-run congestion in Oxford Iffley Rd: angry drivers, wasted time and CO2. It has been like this for years. One must be crazy to think this is OK and we should do nothing. Proposed traffic filters may help, but permits must be minimal! Video of congestion;
  • Icon 187830 This is a very dangerous stretch for pedestrians and cyclists: in westward direction there is no pavement and no cycle path, the road curves so obstructs view and drivers pass at high speed.
  • Icon 187779 A love-letter to the free Abbey BMX track
  • Icon 187749 A widened dual use path to link up the towpath at Salterhebble and routes through Clay House Park linking to the greenway over the old railway viaduct and through to Rawroyds Holywell Green
  • Icon 187748 Chalkwell Road 's footways are too narrow as you approach the roundabout, with motors parked on footway both sides, wheelie bins and outward-opening windows in the way, poor lighting and poor visibility for people on foot. There's nowhere to cross safely. Sometimes have to walk in the road.
  • Icon 187746 BMX track in Lalitpur, Nepal
  • Icon 187744 It's very dark and I feel very unsafe riding here and all the way down Canada Way for my job. Can we get more street lights?
  • Icon 187743 Not too comfortable with people swinging iron bars around on cycle paths tbh. This was just off Fitzwilliam St, Sheffield last night. Grainy video:
  • Icon 187742 The most struck bridge this year 2022:
  • Icon 187740 Driver rams cyclist
  • Icon 187739 Although Densole is a village, the A260 through here has a 40 mph limit and is used by HGVs. As a local resident, I would certainly cycle more if traffic were calmed and speeds reduced here
  • Icon 187737 Overgrown plants and lots of rubbish
