Parkers Piece Location: , Cambridge (England, United Kingdom) A very soggy commute


Cycling along the river

Trees all gone now :( for substandard cycleway being built

Area just north of the location of the proposed Chisholm Trail Bridge. Could it go through this land!

Parker's Piece.

See clip at There are more photos at After the weather of the past few weeks, it's good to be able to get out in better conditions. … [more]

The cycle lane on the pavement allows cycles to pass queuing traffic and rejoin the advanced stop box. It is separated from the road by a kerb but only a white line separates it from the footway.

A busy scene on Green Dragon Bridge, Chesterton, Cambridge. Cyclists and pedestrians share this crossing OK.

A busy Green Dragon Bridge, Chesterton, Cambridge during the morning commute. Cyclists and pedestrians can share this space OK.

The Green Dragon Bridge, Chesterton, Cambridge is busy in the morning commuting time but pedestrians and cyclists get along OK here.


Skaters. Looking very young and being polite! See

Cows near cycle route

Cows near cycle route

This happens every year; cables and pipes left at inappropriate angles during a Midsummer Fair of sorts. This problem has since been corrected—see #23737.

Good for the soul

Along the riverbank

A place to meet and chat

Lammas Land cycle path. Very popular cycle path across Lammas Land. Although "segregated" the two halves are much too narrow for people to be able to pass without somebody crossing the line into the "wrong" half of the path.

Bridge has been resurfaced this year and worst bumps ironed out.

Existing pelican crossing to be upgraded to a toucan. Chesterton Rd could easily be made a more pleasant environment for walking and cycling. At 11m wide there is space for two 2m cycle lanes and 3.5m traffic lanes. The central refuges … [more]

Addenbrookes access road roadworks, March 2009: Newly-painted stop lines at contractor access

On the river bank looking towards the town and the spires of Kings College chapel.

The advisory cycle lane across the exit from the Grand Arcade car park (on the left). It's rather strange in that it runs down the middle of the traffic lane

The fence at the VUE development, north of the new cycle lane to the new river bridge, has finally been removed. Let's hope it stays permeable - see #15465.

Grange Road

The Beehive Centre may be changing its attitude towards cyclists, see also #15054. "Public Beehive Art" in the centre of the image.

Road marking needs changing as the dropped kerb has finally been moved up past the sign post bottleneck. (See #15315, #15331 and #15333)

Local estate in Arbury area

Emmanuel Street changes under construction.

Cycle/Pedestrian Toucan crossing on Huntingdon Road

Milton Road Bus & Cycle Lane on a Friday morning 8:30 am.

I mentioned to the head of the highway authority for Cambridgeshire that cyclists using the bypass lane did not have to cycle across the dashes. I was told those dashes should be interpreted as 'Give Way'. Two weeks later an extra dash has … [more]

Vibration testing on the new Riverside bridge - groups walking on the footpath (left/south) and cyclepath (ight/north).

A group of joggers - the first phase of vibration testing on the new Riverside Bridge.

Bollards on Riverside at approach to new cycle bridge. The no motor vehicles sign could do with reflective bands to make it more visible at night

Swing right here to Eltisley Avenue for the Grantchester Meadows cycle route.

Shared use cycle and foot path from Rustat Rd to Clifton Rd (industrial estate), signed from opposite side of Rustat Rd. Sign is somewhat obscured by tree until you get very close.

Cyclists just visible through the leaves on the other side of the River Cam from cattle on Coe Fen, May Bank Holiday 2008.

Quiet passages crossing Chaucer Road CB2 7EB between between Latham Road CB2 2EG / Latham Close CB2 7EL and Coe Fen. Leading to National Cycle Network 11 and Sheeps Green.

Junction of Hobart Rd and Suez Rd, CB1 3PS: new planting and poles to replace older railings around bushes, around "No Motor Vehicles" barriers.

Just before the roundabout at Chesterton.

The footbridge over the railway on Coldham's Common.

These No Entry signs are due to be replaced a year after the political decision was made. (We are told the budget for these projects was raided to rescue other departments within the County Council.)

A Crossings Engineer at the County Council has rendered this "near school" on pavement cycle way useless. The motorist may wonder why the cyclist is not using the infrastructure provided ... Compare to pre-upgrade #11673

New PUFIN crossing on Arbury Road between Arbury Court and the Manor School. The crossing has been upgraded from #11561 removing railings and moving the poles straight into the segregated cycle way (tactile slays). Arbury Road is the … [more]

Cyclists in Corn Exchange Street often find their way obstructed by pedestrians or by delivery vehicles

'Beware of Pedestrians' - what about the rest of us? - construction road on Addenbrookes-Trumpington track.

Corn Exchange Street contra-flow cycle lane - put in 30 years after the contra-flow lanes in nearby Downing and Pembroke Streets were first tried. The entrance to the Grand Arcade Cycle Park is on the left.

Wheeler Street now apparently fully open at long last to two-way cycling. Some committee members are now referring to this route as "Woodburn Way" in honour of James, who has campaigned so effectively on this issue.

This machine was being used today to remove the red surface from the cycle lane. The job had not been done properly the first time round, necessitating this noisy and unpleasant task.

This crossing on Arbury Road between Manor Community College and Arbury Court has a planning note for a crossing upgrade. This includes relocated 550mm from the edge into the centre of the cycle way. With 900 new dwellings at the … [more]

The cycle bridge over the railway near Cambridge Station. Also known as the Carter Bridge.

Instead of widening the pavement an alternative would be to create a central reservation to create a save zone for cyclists crossing the street between Herbert Street and Hamilton Rd.

Gilbert Road on a Sunday afternoon. What is such a cycle lane good for...?

Jesus Lock Bridge. At only 1.65m wide this bridge is too narrow for a mixed use bridge. It is none the less a very useful crossing point for cyclists. Cyclists are required to dismount but most use their discetion - dismounting if the … [more]

Newmarket Road

Entrance to the new car parking. To the right is the new contraflow in Corn Exchange Street being built, but with a ludicrously large buildout which should instead have been used to widen the cycle path.

Works round the back of the Grand Arcade, where a new cycle contraflow will be installed.

Pelican crossing on Milton Road near Chesterton Hall Crescent

Popular cycle route, which on Fair Street sometimes gets crowded.

The concept of Advanced Stop Lines.

A frequent picture on advanced stop lines and MCL at traffic lights. The washed out red tarmac doesn't help. This driver is actually relatively decent.

The upper end of Downhams Lane, near the Rees Thomas School, just before the cycle path to Hawkins Road. The College Field Development did not use this road and the Council Planners did not want to integrate this lane with its mature trees … [more]

cut-through from Uphall Rd

Garret Hostel Lane Bridge

Cycle lanes installed (without consultation) for the purpose of traffic-calming

More cycle path in Kings Hedges

A continuous route to the Science Park. Note how the houses front onto the paths, not the road around the back.

Looking down the Coldham's Lane Bridge.

What would be a useful cycle facility is spoilt by the excessive amount of car parking in Romsey.

The man in the centre of the picture had his handlebars damaged due to the obstructions here. These relics of 1980s restrictive design need to be removed.

Really irritating obstructions here. These are supposedly to prevent motorcycles cutting through which would reduce pleasant cycling. But cycling is made difficult by such obstructions. These are also impossible for trailer users, and … [more]

Cyclists use the 'out' side as the entrance to the cycle lane. The pointless central island should be removed.

Under DfT rules, which can only be described as red tape, excessive levels of signage and infrastructure are needed to make a cycle contraflow. On the continent a single sign that 'cyclists are exempt' from the one-way street is all that is … [more]

Congestion on the Sheep's Green Bridge, which has not been upgraded, only the spans. This is the situation that Councillors have approved. Note the (advisory) Cyclist Dismount signs that have appeared.

Crossing the M11 on the Coton Footpath.

Patching of large cracks on the Coton Footpath.

Large space at the edge of the cycleway.

Works on the Coton path to upgrade it.

Silly chicane near the observatory.

The new span (to the old bridge) now open.

The new span (to the old bridge) now opened.

Very narrow cycle lane on Bateman Street.

Outspoken delivery: the bikes can get past most of the obstacles. The cattlegrids are a great help.
