Vanishing Point Cycle lane disappears!

Coldham’s Lane crossing

Narrow Lane on Cambridge Retail Park, and there's a 5 mph sign. (You need to be pretty skilled to cycle as slow as that!)

The narrow cycle lane markings on each side both suggest to ride away from the camera, but this is not a one-way section of the car park.

A helpful extra bit of tarmac where this cycleway passes near the supermarket deliveries entrance.

A very useful triangle of tarmac makes this route a little bit more pleasant.

New bit of concrete track on Ditton Fields, possibly to help protect underground pipes.

Coldham’s Common work has started at the entrance from Newmarket Road.

Cambridge Retail Park Advisory sign suggests that cyclists stick to that narrow lane. "Cyclists use cycle lane only" and there's a 5 mph sign.

Newly marked narrow cycle lanes on Cambridge Retail Park. The white line goes right up to that kerb at which point the cyclist vanishes!

Cambridge Retail Park A new narrow cycle lane has been marked out, narrower than the space allocated to the footway. Narrow cycle lanes draw cyclists to the edge of the road where they are less visible to vehicles parking / unparking.

An out-of-control motor vehicle has clearly crossed the cycleway here.

The green sign does give a positive 'Road Open' message.

If you want to close a road except to cyclists, it seems rather counter-intuitive to put the concrete blocks right in the cycle lane. Maybe the permanent fixtures will give a clearer message.

Here we go again... the point of the modal filter is that Bateman St is not closed, it is very much open except at one point to motor vehicles - but Cambridgeshire's highways department can't be expected to grasp that.

I don't know if it's connected to Covid-19, but this cycle parking area at St Mary's School has been cleared out.

Babraham Road / Granhams Road junction.

Cycleway to Shelford

Cyclists Beware DO NOT UNDERTAKE Sign that tries to place the responsibility for the turning lorries on the cyclists.

This modal filter was installed in Bateman Street in the past few days to "create more space for pedestrians and cyclists in response to Covid-19".

Graffiti on the railway footbridge.

A badly placed sign put in the middle of the footway where it will be an obstruction to pedestrians. It could easily have been put against the low wall on the left edge. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/?id=0 ... [more]

A routinely ignored No access sign.

Slap bang in the middle of the footway. Reported: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00345511. (But I expect that is ignored as their form is not setup for receiving mis-placed sign reports.)

Locomotive themed planter and cycle parking outside the co-op on Mill Road.

I'm not sure what the point of the arrow is, as there's an End of Cycleway sign right in front of it.

The new 'Dutch-style' Fendon Road roundabout - the yellow-and-black sign should say clearly 'Drivers Give Way etc' and not be off to the left of the cycle and pedestrian sections.

I assume this refers only to cyclists wanting to cross to Brooklands Avenue - there's no reason not to continue riding on the shared-use to the right.

No left turn except cycles at the junction with Mill Road at the foot of the bridge.

Well used racks by day, and mostly empty at night see #146065.

Bus gate signs that should mean this restriction becomes enforceable.

Gwydir Street meets Mill Road, but are cycles exempt from going straight on?

I had these installed 18 years ago 🤗, they fill up during the day see #147131.

Broken racks - nice idea in principle to provide wheel supports against these stands, like on the left. In practice though they have turned out to be fragile.

Clear markings at last for this junction on Mill Road.

Horrible 20 metre-long tramline in the tarmac, causing instability just where you have to ride to avoid dooring by parked cars and either overtaking by impatient drivers in inadequate space or harassment from behind. Repeated requests to Co ... [more]

Terrible surface here, just where you have to ride to avoid dooring and overtaking motor vehicles

There is an advance cycle stop box at these traffic lights, but it was never repainted after being resurfaced several years ago. The cycle lane leading to it is also almost invisible. The road is narrowed here by a central island. Major haz ... [more]

Believe it or not, there is a painted cycle lane here, but drivers cannot see it and often encroach

Merging from shared-use path onto road can be scary, not helped by missing bollard at tip of build-out kerb, giving drivers no warning of cycles appearing

The route to the right is shown as a cycleway, the route to the left is also open for cycling.

Charging point for two electric pool cars at the Institute of Astronomy

Three cycle hangars (very rare in Cambridge) at the Institute of Astronomy

Covered cycle parking and tools at the Institute of Astronomy

A new path has been added and the sign has been moved aside, but it still seems odd - if there is a problem, why not paint Give Way markings for road traffic?
