74379Photo #74379Signage 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 and now out of date after recent developments.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 misleading and old signs could be replaced by one clear sign, on the left of the road (left picture) in the place where the route actually changes direction.

74292Photo #74292Steps really?

In a purpose designed cycle park? Are there steps on the ramps for the car parking?

Being serious, this is an irritation but doesn't really detract from what is otherwise a pretty good facility. I haven't come across any cycle parking to match it on this side of the North Sea.

Having said that, I haven't tried using it in the evening rush when a train load of angry commuters are all trying to roll their bikes down that little channel as I am trying to come up.

74291Photo #74291Two storey racks

They seem better quality and more robust than the previous racks in the temporary cycle park.

The bottom tier are awkward to use for tall people like me but the top tier seem fine. There are Sheffield stands too for people who prefer them.

74280Photo #74280Scene of yesterday's busway crash (see #74275), and on the right a path link to the busway which joins to a crossing at the bus stop.

There's some damage to the busway guides which presumably explains the 10mph. Judging by how far from the first marks to where the bus ended up on the embankment there seems to have been quite ineffective braking.
