Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]

First time through this way for a little while. As usual, an illegally stopped vehicle, with a nearby legal space. Looks like they've been here awhile and are not leaving soon. I know you've worked hard on this @IanGManning, what more can w ... [more]

The irony of a "Cyclists, pass with care" notice on a bus driving in the cyclelane.

Again*, illegally stopped up in a cyclelane. Just as a reminder from the Freight Transport Association, this is something not to do. http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/drivercard_1.pdf [PDF, bottom of page 3] ... [more]

Another illegal position from the Richmond Coaches driver. Just waited there for around 5 minutes. It is illegal to stop in a cyclelane. Even the FTA say don't do it. http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/driver ... [more]

Costa Coffee illegally unloading in a cyclelane. Something the Freight Transport Association advise never to do. Bottom of page 3 [PDF] http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/downloads/pcns/drivercard_1.pdf

This is a two lane entrance to the traffic lights. The queueing traffic to the left is doing a right turn which lights are only green for a short time. The other lane is clear to use with a green light. Apart from a bus across both lanes do ... [more]

Illegal stopping in cyclelane from @Richmondscoach.

Another example of misuse of the Hills Road cyclelane. And at a time when lots of children are likely riding from their school.

The key to this map says blue dashed lines are "Signed primary network separate from traffic". So why are developers putting up no entry signs as per https://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/87701/?

Another example of how this junction design needs to be revisited. And why the whole of this place stinks of car fumes. The pollution here is so bad it utterly stinks!

These "No Entry" signs appeared whilst Wilton Terrace was being demolished and there was restricted access at the other end. However, that's long over and there's plenty of space now. So are these signs still up to dissuade people cycli ... [more]

Blatant obstruction of Hills Road cycle track by a private vehicle. The driver claimed to work for Cambs Highways and to be dealing with a collapsed manhole cover in the verge, but I had seen him walk out of Holbrook Road and speak to a res ... [more]

UPDATE AT END. New sign asking "Cyclists please dismount". This has been a cycle cut through for the 27 years I've lived here. Note it's a private sign and not official, but this is a private estate. However, when estate planned, was it ... [more]

Shared-use pavement work going on. Diversion onto road now includes ramps for riders (it didn't yesterday!). And this means taking a road lane out to temporary traffic lights. Now, to get those awkward concrete blocks out of the diversion r ... [more]

This causes irritation and can cause road collisions putting vulnerable road users at considerable risk.

It's hardly surprising that people think it's okay to stop up in a cyclelane when the police do it. They do have some leeway, but clearly not in this case.

As the blurb goes, I think this driver parked their van on the cyclepath for several days without any challenge. The FTA says even unloading shouldn't be done here, let alone parking up. http://www.fta.co.uk/export/sites/fta/_galleries/ ... [more]

Bizarre changing of a speed limit in a quiet residential area. All the residential roads here have 20mph now as standard, except the one heading off to the left here. I suspect it might be because it's a private road.

See clip at https://youtu.be/994rQ4Lj7jI Although I'm making the point that this is very poor driving, there is an argument that the road design here leads to this behaviour. I've seen this happen a lot here. Passing to Close Highway ... [more]

I suspect that the signage on Fison Road is wrong. I'm pretty sure cars should be allowed here.

YT61 TJU completely blocking cyclepath at various times in the middle of the day.

See video (with music!) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AXcNRxQLwI

Yet another example that the builders really don't care at all about illegally blocking the route for local people. And that the council and police are complicit in not making sure they don't obstruct.

Approaching Rustat Road from Carter Bridge showing bollards and road markings.

Bollards on Carter Bridge, approaching Devonshire Road. The curve of the route round to the right makes the left-hand gap feel even narrower, exacerbated by overhanging vegetation.

The iron work is still a little raised but Short Street is finally being resurfaced, with the setts removed too. Let's hope it lasts.

I'd love to know the legal position here. I'd suggest that it follows the car rules, in that only enter the cycle lane if it's absolutely necessary (non-mandatory lane). And my feeling is that it's not necessary, thus breaking the law.

Bus stop as an island with a cyclepath behind it.

Another place in Cambridge where a cycle route and a bus stop happily co-exist!

The Milton Road mandatory cycle lane obstructed.

At the end of the Trumpington Road car parking bays by New Bit the northbound cycle lane is only 108 cm / 42½" wide. This inlcudes 15cm / 6" of cobblestone.

Cycle lanes measurements like supermarket prices. Between the centre of the white line and the hazardous kerb there at only 99cm / 39" of insufficient space for cycling on the northbound cycle lane on Trumpington Road

The southbound redmac cyclelane on Trumpington Road is in poor state and it is narrow: here it is only 40" / 102cm.

The southbound redmac cyclelane on Trumpington Road, near the junction with Brooklands Avenue is narrow: only 46" / 117cm.

See clip at http://youtu.be/fzNADIGVE0c The existence of a cycle lane does not mean rules 213 and 163 can be ignored. The reasons for those rules are still valid. Passing to Close Highway code rule 213. Motorcyclists and cyclists ma ... [more]
