Coldham’s Lane crossing

Narrow Lane on Cambridge Retail Park, and there's a 5 mph sign. (You need to be pretty skilled to cycle as slow as that!)

Narrow cycle lane at Cambridge Retail park with a blue advisory sign that reads: Cyclists use cycle lane only

Vanishing Point Cycle lane disappears!

Appearing point Narrow cycle lane emerges from footway! The opposite of a vanishing point.

Vanishing point The white line goes right up to the kerb where there's a lamp post at which point the cyclist disappears!

The narrow cycle lane markings on each side both suggest to ride away from the camera, but this is not a one-way section of the car park.

Cambridge Retail Park A new narrow cycle lane has been marked out, narrower than the space allocated to the footway. Narrow cycle lanes draw cyclists to the edge of the road where they are less visible to vehicles parking / unparking.

New yellow lines have resulted in an immediate improvement to reduce the pavement parking problem previously here, following campaigning by Camcycle.

Old and new

Red Cross Lane - taxis are waiting here, in addition to Addenbrooke's staff parking - parking urgently needs to be eliminated as part of the post-Covid19 recovery plan.

Car club space

Parking for the new Enterprise car-sharing scheme, Russell Street, Cambridge.

Electric hearse

Still a useless 'cycle lane' with cars parked in it. As they are allowed to do...single yellow line.

There’s often plenty of space to make cycle tracks... it’s just taken up by car storage instead

There’s often plenty of space to make segregated cycleways... it’s just taken up by car storage instead.

The introduction of residents’ parking has meant that large amounts of commuter car parking has stopped, which is good; but the space should now be reclaimed by removing unused bays

The exit to this important cut through has very little visibility when cars are parked, with a white H line that is too short. Those car storage spaces should be removed, now that residents’ parking has reduced the demand in the area.

Car storage area near a sofa store.

I measured the gap for pedestrians between the house and the dashed white line as 64cm here, the footway as 1.31 metres and the car space as 2.05 metres. Photo captured using the Measure app on an iPhone 7 https://support.apple.com/en-gb ... [more]

Coleridge West residents parking scheme in operation. Vehicles left here between 10am and 6pm require a fee-paid permit.

Coleridge Road - in glare of harsh winter light The residents parking scheme (shown by the sign at left) is supposed to have come into force on 7 Nov but is shown with a blue tape diagonally across the sign suggesting it is not ready yet ... [more]

Coleridge Road Residents slow to adapt to the new parking markings.

Charles Street where double yellow lines have been introduced on one side of the road, and resident parking bays on the other. This is an improved environment now for pedestrians (who have both footways cleared in principle) and cycling. Co ... [more]

Looks like a protected car parking space, procured, somehow, by the local resident's association. It'd be nice if you could do this for cycle parking too...

Crammed in!

There's a residents' parking scheme coming, and people are creating off-road car-storage spaces to avoid paying £52 a year.

Not an ideal place to unload!

Motor vehicles stored right across the footway in Great Eastern Street.

Parking like this makes Puffles want to bring back the old tow-away scheme

"The Courtyard" which sounds nice is actually more of a motor vehicle storage facility. The only cycle parking is against the walls.

Large area of council run garages well lit and look like they've had a recent refresh compared to #63227.

I was surprised to see fewer parked cars than usual on the right in Charles Street. It made riding through here more pleasant.

'Bus / cycle lane'

A car parked in a parking bay marked in the 'bus / cycle lane'. Really.

Cars parked on the shared-use pavement with double-yellow lines. Typical.

In the two houses on the right, the garages have been converted into living space.

Need for cycle parking on this street.

Typical entitled motorist blocking the pavement.

Chaotic, dangerous environment, on Norfolk Street - should be a ban on parking around the school

Is replacement of the car park with a new car park really the best use of space here? Why not house people, and reduce car dependency, instead?

Car parking here needs to be stopped - the two left vehicles are on the pavement. This means that the intended route for cycles, behind the bollards, doesn't work.

This entrance to the Friends Meeting House nicely doubles as motor vehicle storage.

Temporary removal of a few parking spaces - yet people seem to cope

Use of this very tight space for 8-hour parking bays is frankly ridiculous

Cycling and walking here much easier when vehicles not parked - the latter should be banned

Irony that is probably lost on the management of CB1 development - a poster 'advising' cyclists to use the (rather distant from here) Cyclepoint - and in the background a 'mobile patrol' vehicle parked on the pedestrian area.

Street dominated by car storage

Notice the car's wing mirror behind offside front wheel - looks like the vehicle has been grazed by passing traffic.

Repainting pavement parking lines: the County Council's annual reminder that pedestrians and wheelchair users are second-class citizens.

Look how much safer things are here, how much more attractive, and how much space there is (e.g. for cycle parking, trees, play spaces) without the car storage

The sheer nerve of some van drivers! @camcycle @CambridgeCops https://t.co/HwCkYffATY

This car park is only used lightly - it would be best to remove it and turn it into a productive use of space - housing

Pavement car storage in Romsey creates an exclusionary environment for wheelchair users.

When cars park right against the cycle parking that makes access through our front door rather awkward - when we're bring our bikes in or out. It doesn't happen very often - but this car hasn't moved for about four days. Bikes have to be ... [more]

It's about time that Regent Terrace had parking banned entirely; this is a terrible pedestrian environment and is a very busy cycle route
