News from Leicester — the 500-metre pop-up "keyworker corridor" has been extended by another 500 metres overnight. @CityMayorLeic @OweniteAdam @RideLeicester

"With less cars on the road, we have a real opportunity to re-imagine what our streets could and should be like." Temporary #SpaceForDistancing is needed in Northern Ireland if we want a future with safer spaces to walk and cycle: https: ... [more]

Lengthy guard rail protects the downhill section of path at the mini-roundabout junction with Hockley Farm Road.

Hockley Farm Road passes under Leicester's ring road.

Hinckley Road / New Parks Way

Crossing of New Parks Boulevard.

Pelican crossing - with two cyclists waiting to cross New Parks Boulevard.

Cycleway alongside New Parks Way There are two parallel similar quality paths along here and it's not clear which is for cycling and which is for pedestrians.

Belvoir Street, Leicester

New Walk - a route much valued by pedestrians.

Works are underway to build a segregated cycle track - which starts immediately beyond this bus stop.

Sir Robert Peel pub, Jarrom Street, Leicester

Traffic calming on Jarrom Street, Leicester

Two one-way traffic lanes and one very narrow contra-flow cycle lane in Havelock Street, Leicester.

NCN 6 crosses Upperton Road, Leicester at a toucan crossing.

Upperton Road - unsatisfactory shared-use and a toucan crossing.

Contraflow junction, Briton Street, Leicester

De Montfort University - these closures to motor traffic create a campus feel.

De Montfort University - the closures to motor traffic really create a campus feel.

De Montfort University The roads here retain their appearance prior to being closed to motor traffic. To be fully open to pedestrians it needs some Cyclescaping :-)

Side road off Newarke Street, Leicester

Side road off Newarke Street, Leicester Closed off to motor vehicles.

Aylestone Road, Leicester

Market Street, Leicester

Great news for #Leicester cyclists. Lobbying by @LeicesterCCG closes the Marble St/Newarke St cycle track junction See also #64126.

After being on shared use paths cyclists are invited to join the (dual) carriageway here.

Guildhall Lane

Granby Street in Leicester. Over recent years cycle lanes have been added and the footway widened.

Painted bike lanes on the wrong side of the carriageway regularly encroached upon by buses. Not a pleasant place to be.

Painted bike lanes on the wrong side of the carriageway were never going to appeal to many. Note the worn out paint - it's about 2 years old. The lane was put here to keep bikes away from the many bus stops on Humberstone Gate.

Carriageway route continues over roundabout (not open yet).

N of Belgrave Circle isn't too clever. Mostly built in 2014, this stretch features shared space where cyclists have to give way four times in under 150m. Must maintain traffic flow. And add some parking.

This is a one way road crossing a pedestrian path and a two way segregated cycle track to join a busy one way road. There is not enough visibility here for drivers to look to their R properly without driving over the pedestrian path and ont ... [more]

Bus lane into Leicester

Looks like an art-deco bus stop outside Western Park, Leicester. The plaque reads 'Donated to the City by Robert Rowley Jr. 1934".

King Richard's Road, Leicester

Cycle route along Richard III Road, Leicester

High Street, Leicester after 11am all delivery vans are gone.

Market Street, Leicester

High Street Leicester - most motor traffic has been removed from this central street and the neighbouring small streets.

High Street Leicester - some kind of 'pedestrianizaton'.

The sign on the left attached to the lampost says "Thieves want your satnav".

Residential street narrowed by build outs and car parking bays.

This Statue of Liberty on the roundabout here was rescued when the Liberty Shoes factory was knocked down, many years ago. There's a shared use path on the left here. (See #30738 for why this was taken from a car.)

West Street, Leicester, looking towards Nelson Mandela park.

A terraced street in Leicester, with a prison in the distance.
