Thank you to Ealing scrutiny committee for tonight's decision to keep Fishers Lane open for sustainable transport only. This creates a north-south cycle route linking @EalingCouncil and @LBofHounslow parts of Chiswick @_petermason @deirdre ... [more]

Feeing for the owner of this newish looking bike locked up on the corner of Berwick and Gt Marlborough St in Soho- the roadworks further along the road mean that large vehicles turn right and perhaps don’t check what they’re running ove ... [more]

Shared-use path whose useability is severely impaired by ending abruptly at the bottom of a dip, meaning that one must stop to rejoin the road going back uphill behind the camera with all momentum lost. It would be a cheap but massive impro ... [more]

Two-way cycling along the pedestrianised Frodsham Street, you meet service buses head-on which ought to terminate at the new bus station across the canal instead.

Painted bollards at Anderston Cross.

Parking stand at Tesco on Sealand Road.

The paintwork at Anderston Cross, before it was hidden by lots of barricades.

I never noticed these cycle symbols in the paving before.

A van parked not in a marked parking bay, but partly blocking access to the dropped kerb and the path through Yorkhill Park.

And hit some Friday rush hour traffic on the South City Way!!! 😁 @SouthSeeds @SCWFriends https://t.co/o5v1fCyVW7

[Image taken 22.10.21], Library Square, York. There’s room on the Sheffields (racks) for longer and wider ‘York’cycles and trailers. This is appropriate because behind the camera is the library. People carry children on a variety of b ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] St Andrewgate, junction with Aldwark, York. I hadn’t noticed the cycle parking sign before. It’s too high up – not in the line of sight of anyone. But the junction here demands that you are looking around you, n ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] Wellington Row, junction with Tanner Row, York. Part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. These two temporary signs block the pavement which is already made less attractive and less easy to ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] North Street, junction with Tanner Row, York. Part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. The sign on the left has no value. It's a ghost sign: just a frame. It’s a hazard and an obstructio ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. Context and other image here today: #175212 and links. Other images today: #175211 and links

[Image taken 22.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. Not clear if cyclists, pedestrians or wheelchair users will be able to use the route during the closure. This is a critical link for people on cycles moving through the city ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] Scarborough bridge, York railway station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] The bollards at several places on the access to/from the more accessible bridge which opened in around February 2019 appeared soon ... [more]

Alignment of the new bridge is shortest/easiest crossing of the brook, and not great for sightlines and continuity of the path.

A short stretch of the path on the common is very narrow while they work to lay out the edge of the new alignment.

Handrail in place on north bridge steps, concrete detail fettling apparently still in progress.

Trail is not yet surfaced at the bend near the footpath/footbridge crossing - but work is in progress.

Handrail in place on south bridge steps, beds ready for planting.

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. The image shows the need for wider spacing or positioning racks so the ends can be used by other longer and wider designs. The owner says it’s the only one – so far – in the city; that it does ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] North Street, close to the junction with Bridge Street, York. Pavement obstructed, advisory cycle lane blocked... The driver of the van is a regular here: #174478. Other images today: #175196 and links

This sign and cone were still here 22.10.21. [Image taken 18.10.21] Longfield Terrace, junction with Sycamore Place, York. The diversion sign (context see: #174818) and cone have been moved to the left just in front of the silver vehicle. T ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Library Square, York. Creative use of a cycle trailer. Though using cycle parking for use other than securing cycles is not good practice. Racks are usually oversubscribed plus copycatting is an issue. Other images t ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. Context: #175198. Aisles should be rather wider so people can get into and out of racks without difficult or needing to lift a cycle and without damaging other cycles see: #175106, standard and link ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. Context and links: #175198, #175200. Other images today: #175196 and links.

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Row, York. Toastrack Sheffields. A local cycle campaigner said these had come from the city centre. I didn't know they were here - there's no sign to them from the main road (Bootham) or any other clue. And I' ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Bootham Terrace junction with Bootham, York. An NCN65 diversion sign for use during floodworks - Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme and the Clementhorpe flood defences diversion. Other images today: #17519 ... [more]

[Image taken 18.10.21] Clifton Backies (the Woodland Chase/Water Lane end), York. Part of the route floods and also freezes in inclement conditions. An ongoing year-round issue is that the surface splits. As a nature reserve it is not lit a ... [more]

The sign and the grit were still in situ 22.10.21 - a Friday so before a weekend and ahead of a half term. [UPDATE: LNER have not responded to my emails. I emailed Network Rail. Today (a second day of heavy rain in York) it responded: "This ... [more]

[Update: this sign was moved to: #175202] [Image taken 11.10.21] Sycamore Place, York. Why is this temporary sign and the cone here? As I was taking a photo (for other purposes – see: #174812) someone stopped to ask, "Are you interested i ... [more]

Sign still in situ 22.10.21 [Image taken 16.10.21] Grosvernor Terrace, York. What diversion? For who? All road users? People on cycles...? Original image: #174661

[UPDATE: Sign and sand still here 22.10.21 at the start of the half term.] [Image taken 8.7.21] York rail station fallen sign. Does it get picked up only to be knocked over again? It was on the ground on 5.7.21 see #171404. I picked it up. ... [more]

[Image taken 17.10.21] York railway station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Hurrah! At last the two underpasses have imagery in them. The photos are of places along the LNER route. Several years ago I did a walk around with a ... [more]

[Image taken 28.9.21] North Street, junction with Bridge Street and Micklegate, York. The solid white line leading from an advisory cycle lane into an ASL (bike box). Pavement parking. There was a vehicle here when I passed. There was a van ... [more]

  • Icon 175190 Constant speeding on Dorchester Road rat-run
  • Icon 175189 Dorchester Road is used as a rat-run to get to Hinckley Road and avoid traffic lights. Constant levels of speeding up and down hill, and cutting corner, making it dangerous for pedestrians and residents.
  • Icon 175188 Ride-on Santander Cycle scheme is a great thing for the city, yet there are not enough locations outside of city centre to make it accessible for those outside of student populace. Focus on residential areas to allow commuting would be highly beneficial. For example Western Park.

  • Icon 175171 Dingy and unsafe route through this park. Would not use this path on my own or in the dark. Needs lighting and more security. Streetscape architects need to take safety of vulnerable pedestrians and cyclists into account when designing routes and new estates. Often I have to walk 10-15 minutes longer to stay on main roads in order avoid a dangerous and unsafe areas like this.

  • Icon 175167 Limited pavement on Windingbrook Lane, Northampton, NN4 - several areas only have pavement on one side of the road, leading to pedestrians having to have to walk into the road to keep socially distanced. Uneven, rubble paths in some areas also not good for wheelchair users, children’s buggies or vulnerable pedestrians and need reinstating properly.

  • Icon 175165 Slow down traffic past school – 20 mph – www.20splentyorg
  • Icon 175164 Dangerous speeding and bad parking by Simon de Senlis Primary School on a regular basis. Students often need to step into the road to avoid inconsiderate drivers parking across the zigzags and there is mayhem at the zebra crossings could lead to an accident. Speed safety van needs to be deployed in this area and a lollipop person (or two) are urgently needed at school start/finishing times.
