Chicane

Can you see the danger?

Tight chicane see #113028 [removed 6/2/20 www.facebook.com/CambridgeCyclingCampaign/photos/a.460407210671224/2988751731170080/?type=3&theater ]

Useful shortcut but no dropped kerb and a chicane

The dangerous chicane at the corner of Adams Road, Wilberforce Road and the Coton path. It's obvious that people are colliding with the stonework here because it is always getting knocked out of place.

Relict road signs at this closed road exit onto Madingley Road

Obstructive barriers on a cycle path

Unnecessarily obstructive barriers for a cycle route

The unusually generous chicane (thanks by the way, don't take it away) at Peter's field.

A gate designed to deter wide vehicles but accommodate bikes.

Cut-through to Trumpington Meadows

Severe chicane onto a very quiet otherwise estate road.

There seem to have been several iterations to the position of these barriers. Theres now a three metre gap between the two in the foreground.

Tight chicane obstructing path to Ditton Fields recreation ground.

Chicane and lack of dropped kerb guard this useful link from Ditton Fields to Wadloes Road.

Link from Wadloes Road to Ditton Fields.

Barely noticeable - but useful cut through from Wadloes Road to Ditton Fields.

The completely over the top chicane that was put in on this corner ten years ago has resulted in the disappearance of the picket fence and corner cuttting.

This is the Thorpe Way end of the path that begins with the name Velos Walk.

Chicane on this route between Newmarket and Peverel Roads.

Chicane on this route between Newmarket and Peverel Roads.

Useful link between The Orchards and Gladstone Way - but spoilt by a silly chicane made out of two rounded-A cycle parking stands. There's no dropped kerb in the obvious place, because that would take away a motor vehicle storage space?

This toucan crossing of Elizabeth Way is met with a severe chicane onto the shared use pavement cycleway beyond.

Chicane - not the most severe, but makes for an awkward movement onto the road beyond. Why not a simple bollard here instead?

This terrible underpass is still as bad as ever. But wait seven years: #113875

A useful snicket in Chesterton - shame about the chicane but its not too bad to negotiate.

Useful link spoiled by these awkward chicanes. Why do the designers of these things not appreciate that all they have to do is slow people down, not force them to do awkward wiggles?

A useful cut-through and generous chicane.

The utility of this useful cut through is destroyed by these ugly and over-zealous barriers which do much to spoil the street environment here. It is possible to slow cyclists down without making life difficult and unpleasant for everyone.

A useful walker and cycle access rendered horrible by over-zealous barriers. All they need to do is to slow the riders down, not make life difficult for everyone.

Traffic-calming chicanes proposed here, I believe.

Cycle path between Madingley Rd and Clarkson Rd, between Wolfson Court of Girton College on left / east and Centre for Mathematical Sciences on right / west. Lamp posts, but no signs, but path is well used by cyclists and pedestrians. Ed ... [more]

Double barrier seen from inside the estate off Monkswell Road: Must cyclists and wheelchair users be kept out? See #13010 from cul-de-sac. Link between Southbrook Close (off Alpha Terrace) and the Monkswell area.

Surprising - traffic calming on a dead-end street

The goal: moving the posts. Acheived a few years later: see #29233.

This generous chicane has replaced the severe pram arms that were once here see #6670. See also #11886.

Marmora Rd / Malta Rd end of cycle path from Coleridge Rd. Pram posts were replaced by barriers, which are widely enough spaced to cycle through, sometime in Oct 07.

Closure between Hobart and Suez Rds. Similar in Waltham Forest: #106759

This is supposed to be a cycle route! Here we see the paradox of the chicane. On the left is the cycle route - with its ridiculous chicane, and on the right the pedestrian side - free of the chicane. So which side is easier to ride on? Y ... [more]

Chicane introduced to reduce cycling speeds for elderly residents. The problem this causes for everyone else results in the same scene 10 years later at: #54312.

Completely over the top chicane. See the scene ten years later at #54313.

Bizarre obstruction for pedestrians - the faulty logic to install this seems to be to stop pavement cycling (and motorcycling) - rather than to provide a convenient alternative for those modes. Much better in 2019: see #106290.

Severe chicanes - how are you supposed to get passed this?
