The great snow of 2017.

Close up of paving light. This one is, obviously, not working but it does mean you can see how small they are. (LED bulb?) See also #95284

These would need to be viewed in the dark but these small lights seem to be quite effective, but subtle. An idea for more rural locations, perhaps?

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

Not a dual carriageway, but two parallel two-way roads, the nearest of which is reserved for buses only. The footway on this side is to be converted (or just redesignated?) for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road being rebuilt for shared use, with some low branches coming over the wall from the park.

After bikes being here as long as anyone can remember the new racks nearby #95242 have given this church the opportunity to ban them.

Somerset House - so popular now, so little cycle parking.

Quiet Route at Smithfield

Cycle Superhighway under construction

Segregated section of Quiet Route

Permanent Home Zone (as opposed to a Play Street for 3 hours a week/month) & bike hangar

Play Street for 3 hours a week - the yummy mummies obviously have more clout here than on St George's Avenue (#95271). Still no mention of cycle access.

Play Street .. for 3 hours a month... (no mention of cycle access)

Road closure with cycle parking - good practice.

Clever gadget on the cycle bridge to Oxford station

The new Pashley bikes for TfL's bike-sharing scheme all have Blaze Laserlights - I find it a bit disconcerting to be on the road with all these green lights bouncing around, but I suppose I'll get used to it.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

When this area at Partick station was repaved, I thought it might be getting prepared for the installation of the large double decker bike racks, given the congestion on the existing cycle parking. But no, it has been getting used for car p ... [more]

Settlement at the south end of the flagship active travel bridge across the Clydeside Expressway at the Glasgow Harbour development.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

It turns out bolting cycle parking stands to block paving isn't very secure. Who knew?

Proof of need for cycle parking in this part of Thoday Street. See #95140.

Very poor drainage and lack of maintenance has filled this path with mud and water. It's actually a hard tarmacadam-type surface on the right, but it's under a sea of mud.

There are currently three vehicles parked on this double yellow line all day Monday to Friday.

New tidy cycle parking on Sidney Street.

Another instance of there being no dropped kerb at the end of a path in the Village development, this time in Govan Road. [This one has since been rectified, see #95263]

Uphall - East Calder track

East Calder - Uphall path

Prone to flooding. Water gathers on the higher land on the west side of the path and flows onto the path. Needs a ditch to gather the water and pipe it under the path.

  • Icon 95262 The houses in Colliers Wood have typically small front gardens and narrow hallways - commuting by bike is difficult because storing a bike in the home is difficult as well. The facilities in the area of Colliers Wood and Tooting is correct as it is part of the Cycling highway to central london so offering secure overnight bike parking will support greatly cycling to work schemes, additionally MERTON council receives funding from TFL for participating to CYCLE VISION program so perhaps some funds could be allocated to creating secure bike parking.
