Junction of shared-use paths (a cycle marking is visible to the right of the bins).

This looks like a pre-war cycleway but was built in about the 1980s when it was thought that the ring road would be extended across the river.

It's coming! - the Chisholm Trail

Start of the cycleway on Arbury Road - but it should be properly integrated with the route to the southwest.

End of the cycleway on Arbury Road

Cycle route northeast from the parallel crossing of Arbury Road

Parallel crossing on Arbury Road - but the cycleways should continue to the southwest.

Dutch-style cycleways and crossing at St Laurence primary school

Shortcut between Clifton Road and Rustat Road.

The dangerous section of the guided bus in #Trumpington near #Cambridge station https://t.co/eTo823uYt0

View from Babraham Road towards the Nine Wells.

Restriction on the ncn51 diversion

The Abbey-Chesterton Bridge on Ditton Meadows.

The elegance of the Abbey Chesterton Bridge on the Chisholm Trail emerges from the engineering works.

The Abbey Chesterton Bridge in situ at last. There were lots of people walking around today on Stourbridge Common and Ditton Meadows - exercising in the mild November air and many of them had come to look at the bridge and the cranes.

The newly sited Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - alongside the railway bridge. The photo also shows the set of points, a.k.a.turnout, which southbound (towards the camera) trains use to switch tracks after leaving Cambridge North station.

Ta-da! https://t.co/cVhReDPuTU

The Abbey-Chesterton bridge in-situ.

This section of cycleway has been resurfaced and the stud lights have vanished - the second time this has happened. It also needs clearing of dead leaf mush.

This path is going to have to be surfaced and improved for cycling soon.

Coldham’s Common

Night lighting near the observatory.

Colourful lighting at Riverside Bridge.

Mill Road Depot site under construction, which will have the Chisholm Trail along it

Access point from the retail park and Newmarket Road.

The cycle marking is facing the wrong way round.

A helpful extra bit of tarmac where this cycleway passes near the supermarket deliveries entrance.

A very useful triangle of tarmac makes this route a little bit more pleasant.

Newly marked narrow cycle lanes on Cambridge Retail Park. The white line goes right up to that kerb at which point the cyclist vanishes!

Barriers here are totally unnecessary and the priority should be for the major route (the cycleway) not 12 houses in a cul-de-sac

Barrier and missing flush kerb. Remove barrier, add flush kerb, surface properly and widen for bidirectional use and distancing.

The central divider means there isn't much space for people either walking or cycling and visibility at the blind corner is terrible. In a survey of 15 users none of them liked having the path divided. Remove the divider.

Path impeded by barriers. Prevents distancing and is difficult for cycles. Remove barriers.

Barrier prevents distancing and barrier plus lack of flush kerb makes it very difficult with a cargo bike or trike. Put in a flush kerb and bollard.

Barriers and no flush kerb make this route very awkward with a cargo bike or trike, and add conflict with pedestrians. Put in a flush kerb and a bollard instead.

Anti-cycle barriers make this cycle route very awkward to use and get in the way of distancing.

Anti-cycle barriers make this cycle route very awkward to use and get in the way of distancing.

Put in some proper segregation here with wands, kerbs or armadillos rather than just painting a line.

New stronger cattle grid replacing one that was quite bent.

Jetty incomplete - do not enter!

Flowers at the site on the busway two years on from a fatal crash: see #102153 Messages from colleagues, family and friends.

Queue-busting cycle lanes repainted at last

Cycleway to Shelford

Road surface along this entire stretch from Ferry Path in the east to Croftholme Lane in the west is appalling and very dangerous. Re-thinking of cycle paths through the route, and then proper resurfacing is urgently required.

Waiting for Network Rail to close line for installation of final three sections of jetty below Chisholm Trail bridge alignment

The on-road cylepath from the Barnwell Road roundabout to the Ditton Lane junction could really do with repainting: most of the red has now vanished.

I'm not sure what the point of the arrow is, as there's an End of Cycleway sign right in front of it.

This crossing is really dangerous for pedestrian and cyclists. The traffic lights don't take them into consideration at all and it is a dangerous point in a otherwise great cycling path.

Filter lights do not seem to detect cyclists waiting to turn into Eddington Avenue

Farm entrance and exit needs to give way to cyclists on the cycle path. No markings are provided and vehicles turn in and out without care without looking along the cycle path for vehicles

Link to a new section of the Eddington development (and a shared-use sign that has been crashed into)

The route to the right is shown as a cycleway, the route to the left is also open for cycling.

The actual M11 bridge is quite wide, but the shared-use links on either side are riidiculously narrow,

Cycleways taking shape at the Fendon Road roundabout.

Travelling westbound, add a straight-on filter lane for bicycles, open when either the eastbound car or bus lane is open. There's no need to make bikes wait while cars are travelling westbound on the Newmarket Road, and no need for bikes ... [more]

Road is effectively single lane here due to on street parking on a blind bend. Oncoming vehicular traffic will often force cyclists into the kerb or the the wing mirrors of the parked cars (depending on direction of travel)

There will be roadworks on Histon Road for the next year - as promised there is a contraflow (southbound) cycleway, but all the signs ignore the existence of cyclists.

Cyclists share cycle path with pedestrians and it is dangerous for both groups. There needs to be a clearer division between which part of the pavement is for walking, and which for cycling.

Replace chicanes at both ends of path with a bollard, so that cargo bikes can get through

Link from Wolfson Court to the cycle routes past the Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Narrow road. Use full width of highway to add segregated cycleway.

Fully lit route across Coldham's Common

Very poor layout for cyclists here with tight bends and criss-crossing footpath. Traffic signals poorly arranged for cyclists approaching from Victoria Avenue.

Mill Road too narrow , heavy traffic, dangerous for bikes. Make one way for cars and two way bike lanes or at least add bike lanes

The "up" cycleway here is stupid, mixed with unnecessary parked short-stay cars and queuing cars. In the other direction the junction is 30mph not 20mph, wide and scary, with cars turning across cyclists. There's a silly cycle lane on the p ... [more]

Unnecessary chicane here - straighten out route for going under bridge

Clumsy signposting here means it's confusing to find the busway path to the station when entering the P&R

Remove or reduce unnecessary gates on path. Replace with bollards if required to prevent motor traffic

Remove unnecessary gates here

Nice new cycle path on Green End Rd has no good interface to very narrow shared use path going NE Milton Rd, trapped behind fence. Yet traffic has 3 lanes going townwards there. Scrap fence and use current inner traffic lane for cycle + ped ... [more]

Critical access link to the Biomedical Campus connecting Red Cross Lane to new Queen Edith's Way cycle roundabout. Road needs to have all on-street parking removed to make space for bikes. Ongoing parking enforcement will be required.

Link from the busway to Trumpington Park - turn left here (the path ahead just loops around to the left)

Cut-through to Trumpington Park School

New slightly wider cycle lanes on Shelford Road - but there's still a road sign indicating that the lane starts here.

Cut-through to a crossing of the Cambridge ring road - more use could be made of this.

Even in Cambridge there are still cut-throughs to record

Closed road, now a handy cycle link

Worn-out Give Way signs at the entry to a closed-off road - these should be removed properly.
