54465Photo #54465Over-running engineering works at Broxbourne cause these delays in Cambridge. The rail staff handled this really well - but breathed a huge sigh of relief when at last train services began at 11:28pm (ish).Destination:

54331Photo #54331Its hard to believe that the cycle bypass that weaves onto the verge area of the footway and between a lamp-post and telegraph pole was ever a practical idea worth pursuing.

I'd like to think that after about 18 years of campaigning for improved infrastructure stupid ideas like this don't get suggested in the first place - but I've also learned not to get surprised!

54299Photo #54299Horrible pram arm that probably gets in everyone's way. It looks like this sort of thing has been added after collisions on the blind corner - but perhaps a better way to deal with such problems is to restore the visibility somehow. A carefully placed bollard can force the would-be colliders to have a chance of seeing each other first.Obstruction:

54282Photo #54282Although the tiny sign on this useful snicket suggests that 'Cycling Prohibited' it probably is not true - because if it was they would have used the standard NO CYCLING sign.

The lack of a dropped kerb does suggest that cycling is not accommodated.

54077Photo #54077A grim, rusty chicane reinforces the unfriendly message from the absence of a dropped kerb that this useful cut through is not meant for pesky cyclists - or anyone else in a wheeled vehicle.

I cannot immediately see any reason why this link to the shared-use cycleway beyond couldn't have been designed with all those users in mind.

In fact just what is going through a traffic engineer's mind when they propose adding something as awful as this to the public realm are they completely potty or what? This is a miserable failure of design.
