Plans for full pedestrianisation of the central square in MediaΘ™

Before and after at this location - huge gyratory replaced with at-grade crossing. From Local Transport Today 427, 29th September 2005.

Advanced cycle lights - they're only activated if a bike is detected, otherwise the lights go to green for motor vehicles at once.

Off Highfield Road There's a half barrier at the end of this road which acts as a modal filter, meaning motor traffic cannot connect through.

Bollards recently added here - presumably to prevent the grassy area from being driven upon? Or perhaps (shudder) from being cycled upon... #108204 ?

[Image taken 16.8.23] Shipton Street, York. New H-bar. Painted today or late yesterday. Very visible. I hope it will be effective. There are many people in this area who use mobility scooters and wheelchairs. There are people who push … [more]

Churchfield Road Modal Filter - ETRO introduced during lockdown for quiet approach to Poole Hospital, and for access to local schools. Confirmed as a permanent measure, but awaiting final design.

Modal filter at a continuation.

Modal filter creating a much more sensible traffic balance in the residential area ahead.

Car parking spaces taken to make space for pedestrians

This crossing used to be one of the slowest in Cambridge but has been altered to change almost immediately! Fantastic for pedestrians heading for Cambridge station, and I don't believe it's holding up motor traffic at all. [Actually I think … [more]

Vinery Road modal filter.

Bristol is looking great and this is the best looking contraflow I have ever seen. https://t.co/xhENMNXpfm Location inferred from clever shop name Tuk Tuck: … [more]

A cycle slip for leaving the carriageway and joining the shared footway. An excellent example of how to provide for this manoeuver, but somewhat redundant in this case when there has been a shared footway along the other side of the road … [more]

Titan Boulevard forms a through route for cycling from the new Clydebank riverside towards the canal at the town centre, via Hume Street visible in the background.

Gt St Mary’s

One of a number of parallel zebra crossings on the revised road network next to Glasgow Airport. There are continuous shared footways on both sides of the road from here to the Inchinnan Road junction, through the new business park.
