95321Photo #95321For as long as I can remember the end of Red Cross Lane has been made awkward to negotiate by anybody trying to get through to Addenbrookes from the East by bike - gated, no dropped kerbs, rough surface, barriers to stop you accessing the road from the path. cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/33236/

Last week I came down Red Cross Lane and found this. Wow, brilliant, just what was needed!

Thank you to whoever finally made this happen.

95044Photo #95044This used to be thick with trees but also a fairly awful / steep path link that the college decided it had to make worse with chicanes & a cyclists dismount sign.

Unsure what's up, but it's all gone now (the sign has since been removed entirely). There's been a lot of construction works on the lot, so it may be some redevelopment.

95000Photo #95000Notice on the end of the bike racks. It's worded a little ambiguously so it could mean they're going to remove the racks (doubt it for such a short time) or that they will be unavailable to use, which seems more likely. Either way, the road in front of Corpus will be closed too.Temporary closure:

94897Photo #94897Hi, I wonder if you can help? I am the Supporters Director at Cambridge United.

I would like to have more cycle racks at the club to allow supporters to be able to come to matches on their bikes and keep them secure. I wonder if there are grants or help towards the costs to provide these?

Is there a company that provide good value for them?

Thank you

94528Photo #94528More recently the county has painted a left-turn arrow in the left-turn lane, and it looks like they are adding ASLs to the junction.

This is still, however, a terribly dangerous junction design because it tells people cycling that they should position themselves to the left-hand-side of left-turning traffic, with no visibility (especially for larger vehicles).

This junction exposes just how much of a lie the so-called 'safety audit' process is.
