Cockburn Street contraflow signs

Contra flow cycling affirmed by this sign, but see #137443.

Nicely placed sharrow to get contra-flow cyclists riding well away from car doors. Compare #70403.

Argyle Street with new street cycle parking. Measurements from left to right accurate to 5cm: Left footway: 180cm Cycle lane: 165cm Carriageway between offside edge of white line and bollard: 265cm Offside edge of bollard to right ... [more]

Thoday Street contraflow cycle lane now marked.

Clare delighted that at last she can ride both ways in the street where she's been working for the last 30+ years.

New contraflow cycling markings on Union Road, Cambridge.

Is this a new sign over-ruling the No Entry marking because the road is now two-way for cycling? Very unclear.

There's no cycle contraflow on most of Coronation St - the new arrow may be to over-rule the No Entry marking to the right on Panton St because the road is now two-way for cycling? Very unclear.

The far western end of Coronation St is now two-way for cycling - improving connections to the new crossing to the fens and Newnham.

Except cycles signs on Belgrave Road :-)

Contraflow cycling sign in Vinery Road - taken just as a helicopter has taken off from Romsey Recreation ground.

Illegally parked in cyclelane. Highway Code Rule 240 (backed up in law) You MUST NOT stop or park on a tram or cycle lane. http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_069860 And the 1988 Road Traffic Act, section 2 ... [more]

Illegally parked in contraflow cyclelane. Right opposite plenty of space to park legally.

Van blocking contraflow cycle lane on Bateman Street. A daily occurrence for much of the year - certainly this last week, and most summers from July to October. There are, of course, parking spaces marked and vacant just across the road, b ... [more]

At last the one-way signs (see #64494) have been replaced with contraflow signs here in Cockburn Street. There are three in this shot, one on the left and two on the right - (one of them in the far distance partially obscured by a van). ... [more]

Contra-flow cycling in Sidney Street - the four southbound riders here are contravening traffic rules. But it is a very common behaviour that by-and-large goes unchallenged. There is occasional enforcement see: #58566.

Sign confirming that contraflow cycling is legitimate. While I was surveying these streets on my bike a driver shouted at me that this was a one way street.

Sign confirming that contraflow cycling is legitimate. It was at this corner that a driver shouted at me that this was a one way street.

Vinery Road has no entry with except cycles panes and there's a contraflow cycle lane. I cycled down there, and a car came round the corner and shouted at me that it was a one way street.

Belgrave Road - now two way for cycling - but the one way arrow sign remains - with nothing obvious here to remind drivers that oncoming cyclists are legitimate. In the far distance, on St. Philip's Road, there's a blue sign which offici ... [more]

The entrance to Belgrave Road from Mill Road. This street has recently been converted to permit contraflow cycling as shown by the sharrow in the foreground, but the one way arrow remains in the background.

Hope Street now have no entry signs with except cycles, both sides see #70497.

Springfield Road with an 'Except cycles' subpanel on only one of the two 'No Entry' signs, and there's a sharrow.

King Street - the no entry signs have no cycling exception but there is a bypass lane.

Malcolm Street - no entry except cycles.

Sidney Street is still signed as no entry, although the bypass lane at left remains.

Fitzwilliam Street no entry except cycles and a sharrow.

Sharrows on St. Andrew's Street buy just about enough space from the buses if you're confident enough to face them off.

A sharrow at the end of Trafalgar Street, where it meets Trafalgar Road marks it as two way for bikes.

No! - This is not a good place to put a sharrow :-) It can be done better, see: #104199.

The arbitrary point along Garden Walk where motor vehicles switch from being parked on the western to the eastern side of the road.

The southern end of Garden Walk at its junction with Victoria Road.

Cockburn Street progress - but the contraflow lane pipes cyclists into parked motor vehicles. See an earlier image at #39536.

Garden Walk facing north at about the point where the cars are parked on the western side. From here onwards there are no cycle markings on the ground to remind motorists to expect oncoming cyclists.

Garden Walk facing north near the Victoria Road end where the cars are parked on the eastern side. There are road markings reminding drivers to expect contraflow cyclists.

This is a view of Garden Walk looking towards Victoria Road. This is a two way street - but only cycles can enter the street from Victoria Road. On the part of the street where the motor vehicles are stored on the West Side there are no ... [more]

Two things to note: 1. Cycle marking sharrow directing into a parked car! 2. The signs on the lighting column are facing the wrong way.

"Except Cycles" and painted road signage for contraflow at the end of Ross Street. I am glad for all of the updated signage as it has been very confusing for the past few weeks.

See #65107.

Cockburn Street now two way for cycling - hurray! (But the one-way street signs are still visible in this picture - pooh.) See #39527. Proper contraflow signs were spotted eight months later - see #71307.

Ross Street: The rules have changed recently to permit two-way cycling in this street (see #63237). A contraflow cycle symbol with arrow has been added. But there is nothing here to inform road users that oncoming cycles are now legal. T ... [more]

The rules have changed recently to permit two-way cycling in this street. The cycle symbol and arrow have been added on the ground and the word NO has also been refreshed (compare to #39547). (Note also that the mini is facing the 'wrong' d ... [more]

The NO ENTRY dominates leaving it unclear whether you can legally reach the contraflow section.

The latest iteration of this entrance to Hope Street marks contraflow cycling for a few metres. I hope (sorry!) this is better at reducing the number of motor vehicles that cut the corner when egressing.

St Philip's Road - with contraflow cycle lane. Only the first five metres of this road are in fact one-way. It becomes a two-way street at the hump, backed up by the sign on the left.

Many cyclists don't bother to use the fussy bypass lane. Because of changes to the rules about cycling in one way streets it probably wouldn't be designed like this today.

It's a 3-points-on-your-license for this offence. Although it's another example of how people driving get away with traffic offences as this simply isn't policed. The police say they are far too busy to prosecute these style of offences. ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKn3w2eMWHY This is breaking the law but also recognised as being very dangerous, mainly as it's a contraflow cyclelane. There are schools nearby and a lot of children use this to get to and fro ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/51oTfRdBeHU After http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvDU9YwHeRY yesterday, I find the same van (hidden) and another van. If I were to guess, they've been parked here solidly duing day time working. Stopping or ... [more]
