And the yellow hatching really contributes to the warm quality of this delightful public realm (not).

Developers didn't properly incorporate cycle parking into the plans for these apartments and an opportunity to create convenient, covered secure cycle parking was missed - but they bust a gut designing underground car storage.Cycle parking:

53883Photo #53883Shortly after the council have painted double yellow lines to stop parked cars creating a pinch-point at the bollards to the left of the photo, these bins have been installed on the pedestrian line, moving them into conflict with cyclists getting on and off the bridge. However the council assure us this is a mistake by contractors and they should be moved within the week.Obstruction:

53878Photo #53878My figures may not be entirely accurate, but there aren't too far off.

I've no idea why this supermarket devalues it's cycle customers. Not only does the cycle parking have many less stands, it's now a lot more awkward to get into it, as your forced to walk your bike down a 2m path, often with trollies left in it and contending against others coming the other way.

Luckily a nearby Co-op has increased the number of cycle stands for parking.

UPDATE ! UPDATE ! UPDATE ! UPDATE !
In the few times I now go to Waitrose (I estimate I spend a quarter of what I used to), I've spotted that Waitrose HAS retained the spaces, just hidden away. See cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/57711/

Moving them would be very expensive, and they would stop the laying of foundations sufficient to support the weight of motor traffic. However, could they be incorporated into a cycleway, which carries much less weight, therefore creating extra width? However, this would mean shutting the cycleway when access is required.Other:
