[Image taken 16.2.21] York, Monks Cross retail park has a bi-directional cycle route around the perimeter. Pedestrian routes 'trickle' from the car parking areas to the retail outlets and must cross the cycle route. Some pedestrian routes a ... [more]

[Image taken 16.2.21] This pedestrian route leads right through the York, Monks Cross retail park car park. There is a warning sign for pedestrians at the point it crosses the two-way cycle route: Look both ways. It does not specify that it ... [more]

[Image taken 23.2.21] We don't have a garden. We don't want to put compostable kitchen waste into landfill though. So we have a composter. When it fills up, we bag up some of the contents and carry it in our cycle trailer from home - this i ... [more]

Ronald Rolph Court is an area of small businesses.

The lines of desire - Bicycle and Footprints in the miry clay, where a Segregated Bicycle Lane is desperately needed along St Oswalds Road, Gloucester. Wide roads and narrow paths abound here.

Bollards are the only sure way to stop this being overrun by motor vehicles. Fixes problem reported in #87878.

Segregated cycle lane on Drayton Park under construction.

Segregated cycleway through filter, alongside pedestrian path with planting. Part of Cycle Superhighway 6.

[Image taken 18.2.21] Flyparked cycles on Micklegate, York. The owners were getting coffees next door. Just one example to illustrate that more cycle parking is needed at this end of the street. See also #164327, #164328

This image from Google Street View shows full Sheffield racks in August 2019. Micklegate is close to the city centre and is home to independent bookshops, cafes... I believe there is a need for more cycle parking - specifically, closer to t ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] On Micklegate, York, a gap in the Sheffields opposite the post office has been marked up with a scooter symbol. E-scooters/hire scooters from Tier.app appeared in this city on 20 October 2020 (https://www.yorkpress.co. ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is now visible but it is very close to the junction. This would seem to limit the chances of drivers seeing it and is too late on this section of Wigginton Road f ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Again, the Do not overtake cyclists sign would seem to have limited use being placed among a line of other signs, and therefore obscured. See also: #164311, #164310, #164312, #164313, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Only at this point do road users have a chance of seeing the Do not overtake cyclists sign. But this location is too late to make a difference. Plus drivers have had so many signs with so many mes ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Too many signs. Messages get lost. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is still completely obscured at this point and therefore has no value. See also: #164311, #164310, #164313, #164314, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York: First of a blizzard of signs aimed at road users on Wigginton Road ahead of works at the junction with Crichton Avenue. The road is uphill, the carriageway in each direction is very narrow. It is used by large ve ... [more]

Dark, muddy path is not cycle friendly

Unnecessary cycle lane on pavement at road junction

The car parking even extends underneath this block of flats

Are these homes designed for cars or for humans?

The 'local centre' is mainly just a giant supermarket with an even bigger car park. This is not walk or cycle friendly.

Well-built bus stop (although lacking information)

Monks Cross Retail Park two Saturday's before Christmas. The 'traffic lanes' are very narrow. You can hear them in use. There is a drainage channel alongside the cycle route. The noise of wheels on grille is audible. The driver in this imag ... [more]

  • Icon 164403 Separate traffic lanes needed if cycle path to exist. Too much mixed traffic.
  • Icon 164402 Whole path needs rebuilding. Dangerous for all traffic types, needs to be segregated
  • Icon 164401 Multiple short less than 10 minute car journeys to walk dogs for less than 15 minutes
  • Icon 164400 Traffic speed too high, blind bends and lack of space for pedestrians and cyclists. Reduce limit to 30 mph. Cut back scrub to remove blind bends. Provide marked foot path.
  • Icon 164399 Speed limit inappropriate for road / drainage to pedestrians and cyclist. Poor surface . Reduce speed limit to 20 mph . improve drainage sweep road.
  • Icon 164398 Clear scrub/low hanging trees and widen path to accommodate cycles and pedestrians between rousebarn and next lock
  • Icon 164396 Provide proper paved cycleway /pedestrian route to allow greater accessibility
  • Icon 164395 Clearly a need for a dedicated cycle lane with such a wide road available.
  • Icon 164394 Remove cycleway from road and allocate space on the ample footpaths either side of the carriageways.
  • Icon 164390 This crossroads is a busy nodal point for people walking, to schools, and facilities in Penkhull, a raised table would calm road traffic to make the whole junction and surrounding streets safer.
  • Icon 164389 There are segregated cycle tracks along Harpfield Road, really useful for school and hospital cycle traffic, but there are no facilities to assist through the 4 armed roundabout with Newcastle Lane. This roundabout is still the original very old design, and highway engineering has advanced considerably in this time. Unusually, this roundabout is fortunate to be set in plenty of public space. A Dutch style roundabout with cycle facilities and zebra crossings of the arms for pedestrians could be created to improve safety and encourage more active travel.
  • Icon 164388 There are segregated cycle tracks along Harpfield Road, really useful for school and hospital cycle traffic, but there are no facilities to assist through the 6 armed roundabout with Keelings Drive. This roundabout is still the original very old design, and highway engineering has advanced considerably in this time. Unusually, this roundabout is fortunate to be set in plenty of public space. A Dutch style roundabout with cycle facilities and zebra crossings of the arms for pedestrians could be created to improve safety and encourage more active travel.
