96483Photo #96483Ridiculous 'Cyclists dismount and use footway' sign.

Meanwhile, the works are preparing to narrow the shared-use path in order to create yet another traffic lane! It's like I stepped into a time machine and ended up back in the 20th century, with the incessant and insane road-widening monster rolling on...

95758Photo #95758The bus driver did not break the law here. Toucan crossing appears to show 'green man' at the same time that the bus driver receives a green light. In fact the green man is for the crossing parallel to the bus, off to the left of the photo.

This would be far, far better if, for example, they'd put a large fascia board style sign over the entrance. You need to be able to see it from several metres away.

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.
