Q: What signage is there here to suggest this route is prohibited for motor vehicles?
A: All I can see here are a shared-use cycleway sign behind the fencing on the left.

186322Photo #186322Good morning,
This morning I stopped to get a coffee at the new Gail's at the train station. The development in this area is great and is very attractive for commuters, but there is not enough bike parking for the shops and offices along station place. If people are to be able to use this area effectively there needs to be more appropriate places to lock bikes whilst making use of the facilities.
Thank you for your consideration.
Best wishes,
Imogen

186275Photo #186275There isn't a good place to move from carriageway to the wide section of shared-use path in order to bypass vehicle queues for the lights and reach the cycle advance box (though there should be space on carriageway between the two lanes of vehicles).

Lots of residential dropped kerbs, but none flush so oblique approach is hazardous.

186235Photo #186235Not on a signed cycle route (that's Love Lane nearby), but shown on the council cycle map. Multiple entrances to chipshop premises on the right. Very common to see bikes locked to the chicane, sometimes obstructing it, because there's no convenient bike parking for shop (Tesco then, Coop in future) or chipshop. No visibility splay to busy footway which is not shared-use.Cycleway:

185786Photo #185786Projected orbits of the Our Place In Space model of the solar system in Cambridge, August 2022.

These orbits are based on the distance between the sun on Midsummer Common and Saturn by the Chisholm Trail bridge at #185175.

That distance is 2292 metres, and so using an orbital radius of 1443 million km gives a scale of 1:625 million - which is close to the value of 1:591 that they based it upon.

185223Photo #185223[Image taken in 2018] Queen Anne Terrace car park, Gonville Place, Cambridge CB1. [NOTE: No street view in this location] This cycle parking space is with others in the Queen Anne Terrace car park (www.cambridge.gov.uk/queen-anne-terrace-car-park). The Cambridgeshire County Council employee who provided the image said: "It has a floor anchor similar to those used for motorbike parking with a stencil of a cargo bike to make clear what it is for – this stops everyone else using these spaces which we try to put in the most convenient location, on the ground floor and near the entrance/exit." This all sounds like excellent practice. There's no mention of the cycle provision on the car park website, though. I will email to ask that this is changed. There's still a lack of understanding that families and people with mobility issues need cycle parking not simply car parking.Cycle parking:

185081Photo #185081There is a chicane between Adams Road and the cycle way, with priority given to cars driving to Wilberforce Road. These priorities are wrong because the cycle way gets substantially more traffic than Wilberforce Rd. Suggest adding a modal filter between Adams Road and Wilberforce Rd, and removing the chicane. The chicane is also dangerous because sight-lines are blocked by a hedge, and cyclists often go too fast causing conflicts.Cycleway:
