65078Photo #65078Pavement continuity across a sideroad in central Groningen.

Different types and colours of paving clearly demarcate the pavement and road, while having a minimal kerb at all edges so it is easy for wheelchairs and prams, or just those unsteady on their feet, to get on and off at any point. However there is still some kerb, which should make it easier for partially-sighted people to know what is road and what is pavement.

Continuity across the side road means pedestrian journeys are uninterrupted while cars and bicycles turning give way.

The paving is attractive, and a minimal of signage and no lines are used. The curved end to the side-street was a common feature, and makes softer lines. There are even a couple of trees.

Note that while it uses pretty paving and minimal signage it is not shared space: what is pavement and what is road is clear. Low levels of through-traffic make it a pleasant place to cycle, so there are no cycling specific facilities here.

Shame that someone has dumped a load of equipment on the pavement just beyond.

33335Photo #33335Resurfacing a cyclepath, Dutch style.

This four kilometre long, four metre wide cycle path is being resurfaced. There's room for two rollers next to each other.

The sign reads "Fietspad - dus niet brommen". i.e. "Cyclepath - therefore no mopeds".

However, while this is only for bikes, it's still built to the same standard as a road. After all, in the winter the same snow ploughs as go along the roads are used to clear this cycle path. Also vehicles need access to clear the weeds from the ditch, mow the grass etc.
