67971Photo #67971Recently added self shutting gate at Romsey Rec - a good idea for slowing down bikes onto this park at a blind corner.

It is probably a bit of a pain for wheelchair / mobility scooters when approaching from the side where the gate opens towards you.

67970Photo #67970At last the old No Entry signs have been replaced with new ones that have 'Except cycles' panels - great!

But that's about 7 months after the (pathetically inadequate) sharrow was added on the road surface - see #63237.

I feel that I'm the only one who has noticed or cares about this sloppiness. If Cambridgeshire County Council is going to leave roads incorrectly signed for that length of time it surely demonstrates that two way cycling is neither a big safety issue nor high on their agenda.

67809Photo #67809Looking south into Garden Walk from Bateson Road.

The road markings are standard for a two way street. At the southern end there are no entry signs with a cyclists' bypass - giving the impression to many motorists that it is in effect one way southbound and leading to confrontations between drivers and northbound cyclists.

This is a two way street - but only cycles can enter the street from Victoria Road. On the part of the street where the motor vehicles are stored on the West Side there are no cycle markings to remind drivers that contra-flow cyclists are expected, permitted and legal.
