After the path has been "fixed"... still full of water filled potholes

After the path has been "fixed"... still full of water filled potholes

After the path has been "fixed" again... still a crater field

Battered railings encroaching further into a narrow shared path. Why exactly are they needed? The next crossing does not have railings.

This was already a very tight and awkward gap to negotiate. Knuckle crusher rails were installed last year to punish anybody who didn't get their alignment quite right. This bollard has now been added to make it even more difficult and make ... [more]

Sometimes you just have to give way to bigger traffic Stourbridge Common

The Grantchester Meadows path just doesn't get any better. This is the condition after the County Council have allegedly "fixed" it. All it needs is a tarmac path between the end of the surfaced road to the start of the surfaced path. I am ... [more]

Dead trees, ivy strewn, collapsing into the Love Lane path. Particularly hazardous at night.

Grantchester Meadows path. Thistles and nettles growing out of the fence by 1m. These will reach half way across the new narrow shared path, visible in the background. Narrow paths, encroachment by vegetation, these are not new problems. ... [more]

Grantchester Meadows path. New 1.5m wide path under construction, tight to the fence. This will be just as unsatisfactory as the existing narrow path alongside Skater's Fen. Why such a narrow path when there is so much space available? An ... [more]

The County RoW officer says that local residents object to the surface of the Grantchester Meadows path here being repaired "because it would encourage parking". Well the state of it clearly doesn't deter parking, people park on the bits wi ... [more]

For as long as I can remember the end of Red Cross Lane has been made awkward to negotiate by anybody trying to get through to Addenbrookes from the East by bike - gated, no dropped kerbs, rough surface, barriers to stop you accessing the r ... [more]

New flatter, wider path on Midsummer Common - hopefully should be less pedestrian conflict.

October mist at Coe Fen Technically a public footpath, as are almost all of Cambridge's traffic free cycle routes. The bridge was closed for several months for re-painting. It is a shame that it was not widened or a parallel cycle br ... [more]

Parker's Piece Path across the Piece - technically a public footpath, but heavily used for cycle access away from the busy roads surrounding the Piece.

Child trailer on Gonville Place Why would you want to reduce traffic on a road like this? Gonville Place used to have cycle lanes but they were removed in order to create an additional traffic lane to allow more vehicles to queue at t ... [more]

Carter Bridge Both the footway and cycleway are below recommended width, and this causes congestion in rush hour, but this is a very useful and popular crossing of the railway.

Narrow and blind - the path under the railway bridge on Ditton Meadows. This is acceptable as a "temporary" fix, but a permanent solution is needed to give acceptable width and sight lines.

These branches need trimming before they knock someone off. When wet they hang lower than shoulder height across most of the path. UPDATE: Path cleared within 24 hours of making this report on the Cambs website!

A wall separating the rear of properties from Nuffield Road. There's a rusty bollard with pram arms half way along it.

Worn markings on shared use path at corner of Parkside and Park Terrace. These were renewed in February 2014.

Shared-use pavement alongside Parker's Piece but markings worn and in need of replacement. Surface redone February 2014 see photo #57095

The first section of the path from Coldham' Lane to Newmarket Road is a Chisholm Trail worthy 5.50m wide. See also #57072.

The two-way, shared-use tarmac path over Coldham's Common is 63" / 1.60m narrow, thought the grass is making making inroads. The edges are breaking up, which makes overtaking impossible and avoiding oncoming people cycling dangerous. See al ... [more]

Measurements of the path over Coldham's Common. At this bridge the path is 3.20m wide kerb to kerb. See also #57073 for the width of the main section of the path.

See clip at http://youtu.be/j3vrcIvnKeM The lorry possibly does fit into the last exemption of the 1988 RTA section 21. I just want to show why sometimes what seems like plenty of space (in common sense parlance, an indicator of failing ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/C8nOmhjLqrs After the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bCxf9KgP8M clip, we've now moved onto this. Is Addenbrookes ripping out segregated route and replacing it with on road space? Or is this just a temporary m ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/Q5YDpTzx5mQ Not only 5 vehicles today, but a follow on of the 3 vehicles yesterday (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkjzw0BTEVo). Sadly, camera focus failed to get numberplates. When this kind of offense is ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/4azbH98U0T4 Just a little further on from http://youtu.be/Q5YDpTzx5mQ. It's getting clearer that the developers believe they are above the law. And why shouldn't they as nothing is ever done about it. Of cours ... [more]

Flooding on Jesus Green - in July! Not a major obstruction but care needed.

Flooding on Jesus Green - in July! Not a major obstruction; quite passable but care needed.

See clip at http://youtu.be/xJRtSTMnPRc Another reason why shared paths are avoided, big puddles such as this! Now, in my cycling gear and knowing the path surface under the puddle, this is a little fun to me. If you cycle down here ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/_ct4-ohdgwk As the clip starts there's plenty of evidence of cows, splattered all over the shared path. Lovely! Then, as I roudn the corner, all the vegetation is back underneath the hedge, as this is one of ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/F4RkmrPGI5s Usually I cycle along the pavement here, as it's a shared path. However, a couple of pedestrians walking in the same direction as me, or a family meandering along, and I'd prefer the road, if it's ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMufMkPcQOs Hmm, this is probably one of the worst examples of complete lack of control over animals. The person walking towards me sees me, then completely ignores the fact that their animals ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doUolf0X0o0 This pedestrian shows wonderful control of their dog, not. He's wondering along with headphones in, not looking out for his animal or anyone else using the path. I slow, as it my ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgEnyQAIEVA Okay, just an irritation but it is another reason I like to be off shared paths. This jogger has no idea that anyone else is behind them. Be it cyclist or other runner. I take my ... [more]

Some day, all cycle routes will be like this. The surface is smooth, it's wide and there's street lighting.
