First in Milton Keynes (#96095), now in West Cambridge - autonomous vehicles on the footways. www.cambridgeindependent.co.uk/news/autonomous-vehicle-trials-under-way-in-cambridge-9199287/

Cycle parking at the Rutherford Building, West Cambridge (with some of those awful old 'high-density' racks in the background)

Cycle parking at the Maxwell Centre, West Cambridge

Cycle parking at the Maxwell Centre, West Cambridge

Over-cautious attitude - how fast can those cars being going in the car park?

Cycle parking at the Roger Needham Building, West Cambridge

Cycle parking inside and outside the tent at the Cambridge Graphene Centre

No dropped kerb - wheelchairs cannot get from the car park to the Civil Engineering building (there's a gazebo on the footway to the left).

The only way from the car park to the Civil Engineering building - with a No Cycling sign at the end

Why on earth are they so determined not to let people get through to the Civil Engineering building?

Poor stretch of path between the West Cambridge site and the Coton M11 bridge

Path from the Coton M11 bridge to the West Cambridge site - dropped kerb needed

Reasonable cycle parking on a dead-end route past Cambridge University's Civil Engineering building.

Full-width barrier, no dropped kerbs - Cambridge University's Civil Engineering department really doesn't want cyclists to arrive from the north.

Unusual cycle route sign - only allowed on private property.

New traffic calming on the West Cambridge site (and another being installed on the other side of the road)

Traffic calming being installed - it's fairly obvious, but when the signs say Road Closed, they don't include cyclists and pedestrians.

Cycle parking at the Nanoscience Centre, West Cambridge - visitors in the open and staff hidden to the right, presumably.

Cycleway past the Computer Lab, West Cambridge - a wider dropped kerb would help.

Dr Bike event for university staff at the West Cambridge site.

This isn't just a footway (or footpath), it's an important cycle route to Coton, and I think it's been closed for over a month - it would have been helpful to have the diversion via the Madingley Road signed. [now 3 months!]

Temporarily closed - a footpath I didn't know existed. With a dropped kerb and other improvements this would be a useful link to the M11 cycle bridge to Coton. [closed 2/11/20, still closed 15/2/21]

What a shame the cycleway wasn't raised and given priority over the car park access roads.

Mobile bike repair operation on the West Cambridge site. Great, but what a shame it's done by car instead of a cargo bike.

Strange that the British Antarctic Survey has nice new covered cycle parking but has done nothing to put in a dropped kerb or remove the barriers to Madingley Road.

New covered cycle parking at the British Antarctic Survey

Poor footpath ahead, semi-paved commuting route to the right

New secure cycle parking at the rear of the British Antarctic Survey

Conventional footways by the look of it at this new access to the West Cambridge site - no cycle provision.

Link from the Coton Path to the West Cambridge site

Missed opportunity for a link to the West Cambridge Canal Path

It's now April and we're in the Covid-19 lockdown, but some resurfacing has been done.

Now with added double-decker parking - see #71285

Local Highways Improvement completed (Jan 13, 2020): removal of exclusionary chicane barriers and replacement with safe, rubberised bollard. Ed: Related tweet: https://twitter.com/StephenEglen/status/1217094355841884161?s=20 Previous ... [more]

Covered cycle parking - good. Miles from anywhere - less good.

Oh dear, just spotted these wheelbenders on the otherwise excellent West Cambridge site.

Potholes on the Cambridge University Library access road.

Link from the Coton Path to West Cambridge, now clearly marked - see #52340

Let academic brainstorming by West Cambridge Lake not be disturbed by cyclists.

Cycle parking by West Cambridge Lake and link to the Coton Path

Ramp for wheelchairs rather than cycles.

Covered cycle parking nowhere near any buildings. On a Sunday there were 4 bikes here.

Pedestrian-oriented plaza at High Cross

Segregated shared use sign - I suppose the trees and poles form the segregation, but it's not clear. I suppose this is not a public highway and the University can do what it wants.

Covered cycle parking and newly added tools at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, West Cambridge

Tiny shared use pathway along Madingley Road west of Conduit Head Road. Going to be very interesting when thousands of people are living in NW Cambridge site.

Cars parked on the shared-use pavement with double-yellow lines. Typical.

Cycle parking and start of route to the Alison Richard Building.

Access to cycle parking behind the Alison Richard Building.

Yet another major junction with the Coton Path

Not officially open? and only really useful for picnickers by the West Cambridge Lake.

A wide cyclable boulevard on the University's West Cambridge development.

The University's West Cambridge development. Cycleway has no priority at this side road access - and curiously the footway opposite has bollards.

The University's West Cambridge development. Lots of side roads for this new cycleway.

The University's West Cambridge development. Despite the apparently great looking width for cycling a rider prefers the road where he does not have to cross so many side roads.

Covered secure cycle parking with wooden surrounds. Presumably that is to enhance the architectural appeal.

Zig-zag ramps between the two levels on the University's West Cambridge site.

I used my bike to help measure the spacing of these racks - it is about 3 feet or 90 cm.

The university's West Cambridge development - a cycleable boulevard.

Road closure - and some kind of cycle training on a Sunday afternoon.

At last! something is being done about the 20-metre gap between the No Entry sign and the cycle shed.

No cycling on the west side of the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy's new building.

Ducks crossing - there are no signs to say that cycling is banned on the path around the new West Cambridge lake.

Cycle parking at the front of the Department of Material Science and Metallurgy's new building - and an expanse of car parking too, of course.

Staff at the Department of Material Science and Metallurgy's new building have secure cycle parking - but students don't.

Staff parking only at the new University Sports Centre. There are also ten disabled spaces behind the camera, but no other public parking.

A good supply of covered parking at the new University Sports Centre

Road traffic gives way to the cycle track. It's also good that the road to the new University Sports Centre wasn't built for two-way traffic.

Which genius thought it was clever to put the signs in the tree rather than the clear space to the left?

It's now possible for cyclists leaving the West Cambridge site to join the new Madingley Rd cycleway - something that was not originally possible!

Covered parking at the Institute of Manufacturing, West Cambridge site

New traffic-free boulevard into the West Cambridge site

Signage into newly developed area of the West Cambridge site

For once, correct use of a Cyclists Dismount sign - there's no need for cyclists to go this way.
