#CamRideHome at the redeveloped Robin Hood junction discussing the changes. Overall conclusion: a slight improvement for cycling over what was there previously. Main improvement is the High Street approach has been reduced to one lane.

A delivery to the premises on Midsummer Common temporarily blocks the path.

Shared use footway at Newmarket Road / Chisholm Trail crossing now open.

Newly laid asphalt at the Chisholm Trail bridge, Chesterton.

Improved access to Fen Road from the towpath in Chesterton. But as others have pointed out (see #173887) the bollard arrangement is problematic. The gaps at the side are too narrow to use safely hence everyone has to go through the middl ... [more]

Much easier access to the towpath at Fen Road than previously.

Towpath asphalt at Chesterton railway bridge.

This section of the Chisholm Trail is built on a bed of gravel that is designed both to protect tree roots and the path from the roots causing ridges on the path. Only along a short stretch where trees grow on this side of the brook.

The Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road.

A small section of barrier added to the post at this cattle grid to stop the cows cutting across the corner as in #172828.

Coldham’s Lane cycle bridge from the railway.

Coldham’s Common

This section of the widened path across Coldhams Common is now open.

Missing sign - the cycle route to central Cambridge turns right here.

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign and a protected transition to the on-road cycle lane.

There's a shared-use route on the far side of the road, but the route from the Robin Hood junction on this side just seems to vaporise.

It's not clear what happens here to the new shared-use path from the Robin Hood junction.

Link to the Fulbourn Road service road - not needed much now that there's a segregated cycleway on Fulbourn Road.

Single-stage toucan crossing linking to the cycle route to Mallets Road

Crossing to the cycle route to Mallets Road - unlike the new crossings at the Robin Hood junction, this is a clear single-stage cycle crossing.

Repair the path suface: Baldy potholed and when wet difficult to see if we can safely ride through the puddles.

Junction very confusing. Is it legal to cycle on the pavements around the edges as one corner says yes, the other say nothing. Traffic lights have no cycling images so not clear if can be cycled. Not good to have cyclists mixing it with b ... [more]

The start of a cut-through I didn't know about in central Cambridge - the gates seem to be either open or unlocked.

Rising bollards at the start of a cut-through I didn't know about in central Cambridge.

The end of a cut-through I didn't know about in central Cambridge - the gates seem to be either open or unlocked.

Modal filter and cut-through between Trumpington St and Tennis Court Road (to the right)

I haven't noticed elsewhere this bollard treatment for cycle lane behind bus stop

Redmac for the cycle lane past the bus stop is now finished

A challenging place to ride! It’s impossible on this bike to go further because the width becomes narrower than the handlebars. It’s not a cycle route but a gap between a building and a wall.

Bridge on Coldhams Common with the grass cut back for Chisholm Trail work.

The new cycleway continues alongside the road while pedestrians presumably are led to the right for a safer crossing of this dead-end road.

Nice - a link so cyclists can cross one side of Madingley Road then use the lights to cross the other side.

Guided bus waiting at bollards/lights to continue on the guided busway - cyclists should turn left for the parallel route.

Start of bus and cycle route between the Royal Papworth Hospital and AstraZeneca buildings.

Link from Clay Farm to Addenbrooke's Road

This should be part of a 'strategic cycleway' through this new development.

ncn51 jetty is open. some temporary fencing protects users from ongoing bridge works

The Coton M11 bridge has finally reopened, and the Coton Path seems to have been rebuilt the whole way from the bridge to Coton.

The Coton M11 bridge has finally reopened, with new surfacing on either side (but not on the bridge itself).

Where the path meets the bridge over the M11 is flush now, rather than an abrupt ramp as previously.

Advisory cycle lanes and double yellow lines at the south end of Histon Road

Advisory cycle lanes at the south end of Histon Road - but I do quite like the cycle symbols on the outside of the bus stop.

Jetty surface looks good.

Ferry Path - planters, Cyclists Give Way to Pedestrians signs. The ferry has gone and the route to the current bridge is by the road immediately to the east.

Segregated cycleway already in use on Histon Road

Dropped kerb and cut-through

Short gap in the segregated cycleway, to the far side of the hedgeline - it's a bit pointless.

This apparently will be the main route of the Chisholm Trail from the main station.

This apparently will be the main route of the Chisholm Trail towards the main station.

No indication that the cycle route continues on the (rather broken-up) shared-use path ahead - many cyclists must continue on the road.

I think there used to be a problem with cars blocking this cycle cut-through, but now it seems to be used for wheelie-bins.

Modal filter on access to Rustat Road

Nightingale Avenue modal filter - eventually I suppose the pedestrian crossing will have to be moved to allow a straight-across movement for cyclists to Red Cross Lane.

The current state of the Addenbrookes-Trumpington path - you can go down Hering Road and then join the path.

Bollards are the only sure way to stop this being overrun by motor vehicles. Fixes problem reported in #87878.

Access to new blocks of flats, with priority over the cycleway, of course.
