[Image taken 8.5.21] Duncombe Place, York. There’s shared use space for the full length of the Minster on this side. This means it’s permeable for people on foot or cycling between Duncombe Place or High Petergate (Bootham Bar end) and ... [more]

Cycle parking on link from Hills Road bridge to the busway

Of course it's more important to have a statutory lawyer's notice about trespass on the busway than a usable sign for the National Cycle Network.

Little-used link from the busway to Long Road

I imagine will people will want to reach this new park across the guided busway.

Access to this new park is directly from the guided busway. How can that be safe? No dropped kerb, so no wheelchair/cycle access.

Guided bus waiting at bollards/lights to continue on the guided busway - cyclists should turn left for the parallel route.

Cycle route sign well after cyclists need to have turned left - and it's hidden by the Caution - Bollards sign which isn't needed as only qualified bus drivers use this road. The route sign needs moving to where cyclists have to turn left.

Cycle parking at the AstraZeneca building, Cambridge Biomedical Campus

Start of bus and cycle route between the Royal Papworth Hospital and AstraZeneca buildings.

It would be good to have a contraflow cycleway, or failing that, some indication that the multi-storey car park is in the middle of a one-way circuit.

Link from Clay Farm to Addenbrooke's Road

One small house with three cars (one hidden) - despite having cycle and bus routes to Addenbrooke's and central Cambridge. What a waste.

This should be part of a 'strategic cycleway' through this new development.

Absolutely no attempt to complete the 'strategic cycleway' and link to the Clay Farm Community Garden

Absolutely no attempt to complete the 'strategic cycleway' between these two parts of the Clay Farm development.

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]

[Image taken 18.3.21] Glass Bridge, York. The intimidating view of the ‘Glass Bridge’ as it’s known locally is mitigated this end by pink blooms on a white background. https://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/19161449.nhs-heroes-feature-hospi ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York. This contraflow cycle lane is not safe for any user. Yet is now also signed for people in wheelchairs. See also: #168584 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Wellington Row, York. These signs are not true. I am baffled by wheelchair users being directed this way. The pavements are not wide enough and the carriageway under pressure and hazardous. See also: #168585. Wellington ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A very steep slope leads to/from Scarborough Bridge. To get up a slope on a cycle you need a runup and to be positioned correctly. Wider, longer cycles (see: #165610), and those with trailers ( ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. This link is important for work, leisure, tourism, community and… schools. All images of the newly reopened route (first week of May 2021) see: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The fence panel restricts the width of the reopened route and is a hazard. See also: #168551, #168552, #168553. All images relating to the reopened route see: #168548 and links.

  • Icon 168587 Very narrow road, right outside a school entrance. Cars use it as a shortcut to avoid lights at Edward St/Richmond Place.
  • Icon 168586 Reduce speed limit to 30mph from Beggars Lane to Braunstone Cross Roads, cycle lanes are not fit for purpose except when for when standing traffic
  • Icon 168577 Pavement is wide enough however people always park their cars on it, despite the No Parking signs on the wall, meaning pedestrians have to walk along the road. Oddly, bollards have been added to pavements in other (much quieter) areas of this estate but not on North Side between Autumn Drive and Fall Pass where pavement parking occurs regularly each day.
  • Icon 168573 To access this path southbound, cyclists have to wait in the centre of a busy road, on a bend. No refuge. extend path to Anstey or provide safe means of access
  • Icon 168572 No improvement for pedestrian and cycle crossing here at all despite recent upgrade. crossing controls needed.
  • Icon 168571 The cycle lane surface is awful and lumpy and seems to be degrading. please can we have nice smooth paths laid by a machine?
  • Icon 168570 Add bikes here
  • Icon 168569 Add bikes here
  • Icon 168568 Bike share for the DMU Conference & Leisure Centre here please !
  • Icon 168567 Bike Share for Hinckley Road residents here please !
  • Icon 168566 Wider pavement to allow for wheelchairs and buggies. Bins and recycling boxes are a hazard to everyone and especially those less able to navigate the narrow pavements.
  • Icon 168534 Open up as cycle path to connect Marley Head & Dean Prior
