No longer just a footpath - this should be signed as a route from central Trumpington to the busway and Addenbrooke's

Just put up a sign on an inadequate footpath and call it shared-use ?

Ridiculous 'Cyclists dismount and use footway' sign. Meanwhile, the works are preparing to narrow the shared-use path in order to create yet another traffic lane! It's like I stepped into a time machine and ended up back in the 20th cent ... [more]

Milestone and bench on Trumpington Road: II (two) miles to Cambridge.

Signage on the cycle route through Fawcett school not very clear (and it really should be in a school!) and now out of date after recent developments. I do appreciate the desire to avoid putting up new signs and posts, but these two mis ... [more]

The cyclepath has been very poorly redeveloped. It's now much too narrow to take both people riding and walking. This is especially problematic when the school is letting pupils out.

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.

End of the cycle track on the west side of Trumpington Road - cyclists heading south should presumably use the crossing to continue southwards on the road.

Trumpington-Addenbrooke's track (it gets a bit worse further east)

A path through this estate in Trumpington - cycling does not appear to be prohibited.
