[Image taken 4.2.23] Esplanade cycle parking, West Esplanade/Wellington Row (below Lendal Bridge), York. These toast rack Sheffields (see also: #190736) are broken. The last support has been removed. But this leaves a substantial trip hazar ... [more]

[Image taken 4.2.23] Esplanade cycle parking, Wellington Row (below Lendal Bridge), York. Two lots of Sheffield racks linked by rails ie toast racks. I prefer flat-topped Sheffields. I think they provide a longer space for supporting my cyc ... [more]

Modal filter at CS3 on the Embankment

The Embankment cycleway (CS3) changes sides here for access to Blackfriars Bridge

So much new traffic-free space, and this is more or less all the new cycle parking for Somerset House - more is needed!

Modal filter on the new traffic-free section of the Strand

Cycle and pedestrian crossing from the new traffic-free section of the Strand - but it's usually too busy to cycle.

Despite the 20mph sign, cyclists have to turn left here - the route ahead is for westbound cyclists only.

The Parliament Square cycleway blocked by a bus in the middle of the junction

Lights on the Parliament Square cycleway

Route sign on the Parliament Square cycleway (to the right of the motor lanes)

Roadworks on CS8

Cyclesuperhighway 8 narrows here to pass inside a floating bus stop.

Temporary closure, I think, but cyclists can get through

Cyclesuperhighway 8 narrows here to pass inside a floating bus stop.

The off-road cycleway might as well be removed now the segregated on-road route has been created.

Bridge in the Grosvenor Waterside development - pedestrians only, and it doesn't really go anywhere.

The segregated cycleways along the Embankment (CS8 and NCN route 4) start here at this bike sharing station

Albert Bridge - cyclists have to wait while vans squeeze through the width restriction

6 foot 6 inch width limit on the Albert Bridge - and most vehicles seem to be about 6 foot 5 inches wide, but determined to get through.

Start of Quietway 15 north from Brompton cemetery

The end of Quietway 15 at Brompton cemetery

There's a cycle route through Brompton cemetery, but the gates are closing at 5pm.

Link to the footway of the A4 Cromwell Road

Protected cycle lane (and a van crossing)

Cyclists allowed but no pedestrians on the carriageway - is that legally enforceable?

Cycle parking and shared bike

Crowd control barriers at Kensington Olympia station - not just not cycle-friendly, but not even people-friendly.

Awkward end of contraflow cycle lane, in theory

There are Sheffield stands scattered along the length of this road

Maybe they'll finally be able to provide a decent amount of cycle parking for Somerset House and the Courtauld Gallery once the west end of the Strand is open only to pedestrians and cycles?

The only cycle parking near Somerset House and the Courtauld Gallery (in background)

Somerset House - no cycle parking in the huge courtyard, which seems a shame.

NCN route 4 passing beneath the Albert Bridge

Kempsford Gardens on a quietway route

Traffic calming with cycle stands

  • Icon 190739 20 mph for whole of estate
  • Icon 190674 Preston's Old Tram Bridge, originally built in 1802 and closed in 2019, is to be rebuilt by March 2025, thanks to Levelling Up funding.
  • Icon 190673 This section of the disused railway in Cheltenham is not a cycleway, but over 3,000 trees are to be planted here - www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-64444687
  • Icon 190638 Pavement needed on this side of the road. There is nowhere to cross between The George and Beggar Bush Lane meaning dodging bramble bushes. Very dangerous.
  • Icon 190637 Pavement needed on this side of the road as dangerous to get to bus stop; impossible to cross the road - it's like trying to cross the M5!
  • Icon 190636 Pavements in this area are very narrow, making it necessary for pedestrians to cross the street. The road is fairly wide here - pavements should be widened to encourage walking
  • Icon 190635 Since the footpath was diverted following tree planting, there is no opening gate or even a stile allowing you to enter/exit. This should be addressed, or the original footpath reinstated.
  • Icon 190634 This is a problematic corner for cyclists wishing to access Chelvey Road from West Town Road - very busy, and doesn't feel safe when waiting to turn right.
  • Icon 190633 The cycle route effectively runs out here, spilling people out into the village centre. It would be great if a way could be found to extend the route so that it joins up with Chelvey Road
  • Icon 190631 Lack of safe pedestrian and cycling access. Cars could be given passing zones and sections of single carriageway. From the primary school to Yatton High Street a wider flatter continuous pavement is needed plus speed restriction and HGV denial with prominent signage at A370.
  • Icon 190630 Safe pedestrian route alongside road connecting A369 to Portbury village and accessing two public footpaths en route.
  • Icon 190629 Dangerous road: safe pedestrian route alongside road to bus stops and connecting with footpath at top of hill . -required.
