Cars bring out the worst in people. Neither driver wanted to move. Long lines of honking cars on both sides. @LBHF and @TfL when will this tunnel on Trussley Rd be closed for cars? https://t.co/fh17zZrFS1

[Image taken 25.9.21] Rawcliffe Bar Park and Ride, York. The speed humps have been removed. I reported damage which created an invisible 'drop-off' (see: #174306) a hazard for people on cycles, to CYC. I received a by return reply and now a ... [more]

What cycle lane? https://t.co/V2ZBao5sb9

@simon_nuttall @RantyHighwayman @cyclestreets Huntingdon Rd, Huntingdon, near Tesco’s . Here is another death trap for school children, in Godmanchester. 🙁 https://t.co/i0oxszV6rZ Note: similar photo from nine years previously: #45 ... [more]

@RantyHighwayman One of my least favourite cycle lanes in Huntingdon! https://t.co/PBmc2cHTgX Precise location near this Tesco's not exactly known, yet.

[Image taken 25.9.21] York rail station. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Heavy rain, high winds in York 27.9.21. The grit will be dispersed to create a slip and skid hazard over a wider area. I will re-re report this to LNER. A prev ... [more]

Cyclists arriving at Arromanches on the steadily improving cycle route along the Normandy coast.

Cycle route sign and No Motor Vehicles sign on the route along the Normandy coast - being steadily improved.

Cycle route markers between Arromanches and Longues-sur-Mer (which seem to have been changed since 2019 - see #111935)

New cycleway (replacing car parking) along the Breton coast - and cyclists not using it.

Pop-up remodelling of this junction to create a cycleway to the left (although there's no help for cyclists from the Pointe du Grouin crossing to the left)

End of pop-up cycle lane at the St-Malo tourist office roundabout.

The towpath route south from Léhon

End of cycleway on the approach to Cancale

The cycle parking at the Pointe du Grouin has changed since 2013, with wooden wheelbenders now replaced.

[Image taken 26.9.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The only exit on this side of the car park to/from Railway Walk is now being made narrower, less safe-attractive feeling by this briar. This route (orig ... [more]

New brook alignment is open to the river, as far as the culvert at the south end of the bridge ramp

North bridge ramp looks about ready for tarmac

Deep excavation for Trail north of Newmarket Road underpass

[Image taken 26.9.21] Frederic Street junction with Earlsborough Terrace, Marygate car park, York. If I come this way there is often someone who is lost/confused. Unsurprisingly. From afar your route looks obvious: #174421 so if you head le ... [more]

Compound on Common next to Newmarket Road part-cleared

[Image taken 26.9.21] Frederic Street junction with Earlsborough Terrace, Marygate car park, York. Does this sign look clear? Denouement: #174424. Other images here today: #174417 and links

Well that's one way to block the new path to the bridge into the cafe site. Very untidy.

[Image taken 26.9.21] Earlsborough Terrace, Marygate car park, York. Second of two scruffy remains of a laminated sign on the bam Nuttall compound today (see also: #174417) and one that is misleading see: #174421, #174424.

Temporary tarmac present for foot/cycle path, and machinery access 'paving' absent, north of brook crossing

[Image taken 26.9.21] Earlsborough Terrace, Marygate car park, York. On the street sign, in the hedge is one of two scruffy remains of a laminated sign here today (see also: #174419) and one that is misleading see: #174421, #174424.

Need to add pedestrian gate etc next to new cattlegrid north of the railway underpass

Looks like they are not planning to install a second cattlegrid south of the railway underpass

[Image taken 26.9.21] Bottom of steep slope from Scarborough Bridge, Railway Walk, Marygate car park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The foliage has been trimmed to try to improve sight lines. But it's not enough. There's not ... [more]

[Image taken 26.9.21] York: junction with St Martin's Lane, Trinity Lane, Bishophill Senior, Bishophill Junior. Non-descript junction with no diversion or repeater/confirmatory signage to help people wayfind. Yet this is no short-term, loca ... [more]

[Image taken 26.9.21] York: junction with St Martin's Lane, Trinity Lane, Bishophill Senior, Bishophill Junior. For people trying to follow the Terry Avenue/Clementhorpe Flood Defences diversion you make it to the top of the steep hill but ... [more]

[Image taken 26.9.21] Fetter Lane, York looking from Skeldergate. This is a steep uphill. You will be making a right turn and therefore crossing traffic, and doing it from a standstill if approaching from the Micklegate, North Street juncti ... [more]

[Image taken 20.9.21] Butcher Terrace end of the Millennium Bridge, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] New sign at Point 1 of the Orbital route (http://yorkshireridings.blogspot.com/p/york-orbital.html) providing the direction of ... [more]

[UPDATE: See #174475] [Image taken 18.9.21] Rawcliffe Park and Ride, Rawcliffe, York. I used my phone to show the depth of the drop. The drop-off is 7.5cm. A nasty shock for someone on a cycle plus it could cause damage. The problem is not ... [more]

  • Icon 174469 Overgrown vegetation that is forcing cyclists and pedestrians closer to one another and increasing the chance of an accident.
  • Icon 174468 This is now signed as a one-way road (No Entry here) - but it must still be two-way for cycling - surely?
  • Icon 174456 Nocton Fen Lane should be linked to the Lincoln cycling network. Nocton Fen Lane is a single-track farming lane running from Dunston and Nocton to just outside Bardney (5.9 miles long google maps). Drivers avoid this lane due to its width restrictions, condition, lack of passing places and greater distance preferring the quicker Branston Causeway B1190/B1202 route(4.6 miles long google maps) There are only a handful of homes at Wasps Nest served by this lane at its Westerly point and remains their second-choice route. I cycle Nocton Fen Lane regularly and know it to be used far more by cyclists than any car drivers. Once the Lane meets the B1190 there is no safe passage for pedestrians or cyclists from the end of the lane to the Water railway and on to Lincoln, Some footpath does exist close to Bardney bridge, however a path of 0.3 miles on the Southern side is required to the B1190 to achieve this end, no crossing of the B1190 is needed. In short, the provision of one section (0.3 miles) of footpath would introduce 6 miles of cycling and walking routes to the already impressive Lincoln cycle network. The villages of Metheringham and Potterhanworth could also have access to this new route.
  • Icon 174441 Reopen cycle path from station to Alban Way blocked by builders' container. Alternative route is much more dangerous as it involves a road crossing and mixing with buses, unless able to carry bicycle down steps. Direct discrimination against disabled tricycle users.
  • Icon 174440 School zone. Close Birchway and Crawford Road at nursery arrival and departure times to enable safe crossing of the road and discourage excess traffic to and from the school.
  • Icon 174439 20mph zone in Birchwood needed. Residential and no need for through traffic.
  • Icon 174438 20mph zone in Birchwood needed. Residential and no need for through traffic.
  • Icon 174436 20mph zone in Birchwood needed. Residential and no need for through traffic.
  • Icon 174435 Tighten corner to stop cars speeding into Birchwood (often without signalling)
  • Icon 174434 No access from cycle path to Burfield Close. Crossing point needs adding or route via Alban way made accessible for disabled people and families with child trailers.
  • Icon 174433 Create a direct cycle path from Wood Close to Hatfield Market Place via the west side of the skate park. Joins up Woods Ave path to the path to the station creating a safe route off main roads.
  • Icon 174432 Cycle Lanes along this section of Queensway are horrible and need replacing with an off road solution next to the road not on it with only white paint for safety.
