Cycle route around the back of the Grafton Centre. Fifteen years previously: #4816

Bollards at the entrance to this useful route. Sign says: 🚶Busway ⅓ 🚲Addenbrooke's 1 (great to see the apostrophe) 🛤Station 2

Warren Road looking at the Eastfield link.

Warren Road / Eastfield link.

Warren Road / Eastfield link has been freshly rebuilt, wider & with reasonable access control in the form of a single central bollard.

Opened section of Ridgeway with weirdly shaped bollards, misplaced lamp-posts, and loose gravel on the cycleway. Naturally nobody wants to cycle on loose gravel so everyone cycles on the tiled side that was supposed to be the footway. ... [more]

Well-placed bollard at the end of the new connection to Red Cross Lane. Strange & unnecessary but harmless give way markings, I suppose.

There are two sets of bollards like this on the cycle path leading to Newmarket Road Tesco

There are two sets of five bollards like this, one after the other.

Note the LACK of bollards on Burrell's Walk. This is good, since it is likely that someone would hit any bollard placed here during term time when it gets VERY busy. Also a good example of how bollards are not always necessary. Nobody ever ... [more]

Cattle grids on Midsummer common.

Poor-quality surface, non-flush dropped kerb, not-so-great bollard, and a neglected but very clear desire line. This is the connection from Wadloes Road to Ditton Meadows.

A campaigner marking the success of an #absoluteBollards campaign to get rid of the shin-gougers which are now in the down position within those diamonds. There's a new taller bollard in place. Hmm, I think the diamonds need removing now ... [more]

Cycleway linking Cambridge North station with Milton Road. The cycleway is 2.8 metres wide and the footway 2.0 metres. (There are seven and five lots of 40x40cm corduroy slabs spanning the whole width.)

Cycleable routes around Aberdeen Square

Approaching Devonshire Road from Carter cycle bridge. Two concrete bollards have been removed and new, white, ones added with clear markings, instead.

New bollard and white paint at western end of the Carter cycle bridge.

New bollard and clear markings at western end of the Carter cycle bridge.

Obstruction still to be removed from the western end of the Carter Bridge approach at Devonshire Road. New bollards and markings are an improvement.

New bollards at approach to Carter cycle bridge from Devonshire Road. But an obstruction still needs removing.

Approaching Rustat Road from Carter Bridge showing bollards and road markings.

Bollards on Carter Bridge, approaching Devonshire Road. The curve of the route round to the right makes the left-hand gap feel even narrower, exacerbated by overhanging vegetation.

Approach to Carter Bridge from Devonshire Road, showing bollards put in May 2016 (work not yet complete)

Junction of Rustat Road and Carter Bridge showing bollards, road markings and 'give way' sign.

Drivers still finding a way to park illegally on the pavement despite all the bollards and street furniture designed to stop this

These are the bollards noted in Robin's photo #67374. Not only silly, but they look lethal to me. If anybody collides with one of these, the plate on top could take quite a slice into flesh.

Bollards at entrance to cycleway along section of guided busway to new railway station. 1.40m high spaced at 1.50m centre to centre. Cycleway is 3.80m wide here.

Palmer's Walk

Access to the new section of busway cycleway from Nuffield Road.

Hard to see the point of this configuration. It's not a barrier to cycles (it shouldn't be, as there is cycle parking this side of the bollards). It does create conflict by restricting the routes people can take, both on foot and on bik ... [more]

Ugly bollards at Kaleidoscope / Busway track access. These are grey concrete with a bit of white-ish paint. They will be hard to see at night. Why aren't reflectors part of the standard for bollards on cycle routes? This development is c ... [more]

Cycle route into the Brookgate development

Bollards to protect from motor vehicles.

More Amsterdammertje bollards - to stop encroachment of the footway by motor vehicles. The problem is this also means loss of footway space too. I think there is probably a good case here for footway widening, or something a bit more rad ... [more]

Amsterdammertje (bollards specifically designed to separate footway and carriageway) in King Street, Cambridge to defend footway users from motor vehicles. The sign on the wall on the left reads: Cycles and other items left here will be ... [more]

The bollards on the right were rejuvenated last year after being absent / broken for a number of years. They reduce the numbers of motor vehicles mounting, then driving along the footway to pass other oncoming vehicles. Such bollards are ... [more]

New bollards outside Coleridge School, presumably to reduce the problem of verge car storage, see #6763.

Bizarrely over-engineered cycle lane - like an alley in a medieval castle - you shall not escape...

The rising bollards in the Cambridge Retail park (presumably required by its planning consent) have apparently been out of action for months - the black car has just driven through.

Odd arrangement - a double road closure, so that the houses in the middle have no road access at all.

James with some highly reflective bollards outside the junction of Highsett with Hills Road.

This is an example of a modern removable bollard, splendidly adorned with two large reflective bands. This one appears to be branded Autopa.

New wooden bollards along Greville Road - presumably a measure to reduce verge parking by cars.

The path across Peter's field ends in this narrow obstacle. These narrow posts seem to date from long ago when this junction was a roundabout, they are surely no longer necessary.

Church Rate Walk - cycleable with care.

Mess of signage and visual stimuli on Coral Park. The bollard was in the down position, and the gate behind the photographer open, so this could be used as a through route by motor vehicles.

Parkers Piece - gate on corner nearest Catholic Church is locked. The two bollards are sunk into the ground. See also #20389.

Parkers Piece - gate on corner nearest Catholic Church is locked. There are two bases / preparations for bollards (square lids on the ground). See also #20392 and #20574.

Clear road, icy cycle lane. Cyclists are not allowed to use the road at this point

The Cresta run... or the cycle path from the back of tesco down to Riverside, as it is sometimes known. Not only do users have the bollard slalom to cope with today, but we have sheet ice to launch you into the roadway. At least the car ... [more]

Closure on Dudley Road

The view into King's Lane. There is some deteriorating wording on the posts that reads No Motor Cycling. See also #11862.

Interesting and perhaps clever use of bollards to slow down cyclists at a busy entrance to the Sedgwick Site from West Road. You can still cycle through but have to wiggle, which slows you down enough, but not too much to be a pain. But the ... [more]

The policy with bollards is to set them in 500mm from the pavement. In addition these bollards are 100mm wide, so a total of 600mm (two feet) or roughly 33% is lost from the width of this pavement. See how its done in Amsterdam at: #113 ... [more]
