Alignment of the new bridge is shortest/easiest crossing of the brook, and not great for sightlines and continuity of the path.

A short stretch of the path on the common is very narrow while they work to lay out the edge of the new alignment.

Handrail in place on north bridge steps, concrete detail fettling apparently still in progress.

Trail is not yet surfaced at the bend near the footpath/footbridge crossing - but work is in progress.

Handrail in place on south bridge steps, beds ready for planting.

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. The image shows the need for wider spacing or positioning racks so the ends can be used by other longer and wider designs. The owner says it’s the only one – so far – in the city; that it does ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Longfield Terrace, junction with Sycamore Place, York. The diversion sign (context see: #174818) and cone have been moved to the left just in front of the silver vehicle. The sign is now broken. A company's assets. An ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Library Square, York. Creative use of a cycle trailer. Though using cycle parking for use other than securing cycles is not good practice. Racks are usually oversubscribed plus copycatting is an issue. Other images t ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. Context: #175198. Aisles should be rather wider so people can get into and out of racks without difficult or needing to lift a cycle and without damaging other cycles see: #175106, standard and link ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. Toastrack Sheffields. A local cycle campaigner said these had come from the city centre. I didn't know they were here - there's no sign to them from the main road (Bootham) or any other clue. And I' ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Clifton Backies (the Woodland Chase/Water Lane end), York. Part of the route floods and also freezes in inclement conditions. An ongoing year-round issue is that the surface splits. As a nature reserve it is not lit a ... [more]

A large rectangular hole in the path alongside the realigned brook: site of next cattlegrid?

The southbound Via Francigena now forks to the northeast here - this means that cyclists only join the road at the town limits of San Lorenzo Nuovo and the start of the 50km/h limit, which is a good thing.

The Via Francigena turns left and left again - my first clue that I was further south than shown on my route map (and on OpenCycleMap - this means that cyclists now only join the road at the town limits of San Lorenzo Nuovo and the start of ... [more]

Cyclops junction at Histon Road/Warwick Road

Cyclops junction at Histon Road/Warwick Road junction.

Floating bus stop on south bound Histon Road cycle way.

Wands added to cycle lane by A14 junction 32 exit onto Histon Road.

Wands and white lines to encourage turning across the cycle lane (more likely to look for cyclists) than simply drift into the left turn lane (less likely to check for cyclists).

Dropped kerb and wands added to join ahead cycle lane from shared use path at A14 junction 32.

New dropped kerb to exit A14 junction 32 roundabout if rider has taken old route onto road from crossing.

The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion route does not extend as far as the Castlebank Street junction, even though Beith Street is a very wide road for a one lane each way road. Cyclists are diverted back onto the narrow footway to ge ... [more]

The ramps at the soft segregation provided for the COP26 diversion are tiny, and completely unusable should anyone turn up on anything other than a standard solo bicycle.

  • Icon 175167 Limited pavement on Windingbrook Lane, Northampton, NN4 - several areas only have pavement on one side of the road, leading to pedestrians having to have to walk into the road to keep socially distanced. Uneven, rubble paths in some areas also not good for wheelchair users, children’s buggies or vulnerable pedestrians and need reinstating properly.

  • Icon 175164 Dangerous speeding and bad parking by Simon de Senlis Primary School on a regular basis. Students often need to step into the road to avoid inconsiderate drivers parking across the zigzags and there is mayhem at the zebra crossings could lead to an accident. Speed safety van needs to be deployed in this area and a lollipop person (or two) are urgently needed at school start/finishing times.
