Pedestrians squeeze through the bollards restricted by pram arms on the left, and a much improved cycle route on the right.

Impassable 'pram arms' form an exclusionary barrier on what is supposed to be a cycle route.

Unofficial ramp - presumably for the driveway at left is also useful to ride through this shortcut.

The snicket or jitty between Field Way and Rotherwick Way. The pramarms have since been removed see #64567.

Dismounting on a cycleway. For drivers this is the equivalent of having to get out of your car and push! This obstruction badly lets down the Cambridge South East Cycle Route - which was built in the early 1990s as an alternative the the b ... [more]
