#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.

Permanent closure from 13 October 2021.

Pony and trap on Mill Road.

The windscreen wipers on many of the motor vehicles on this side of the street have been lifted up.

Problems with the school run, I suspect.

A letter to Newnham residents from the Lib Den councillors - the petition against removing car parking at the start of Grantchester Meadows will be considered by the county council, so there will be no changes before 27 July.

Notice of the county council's plans to close the car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, and a petition against it.

Information on the Aurrigo autonomous vehicle trails on the West Cambridge site

Aurrigo autonomous vehicle on trial on the West Cambridge site - there was a human on board who seemed very ready to hit the brakes if needed.

The contraflow cycle lane has been kept open through the roadworks - the awful speed humps on Bateman Street are finally being replaced.

The three collapsing speed humps at the eastern end of Bateman Street have been removed - with luck, something better might appear soon.

Temporary cycleway on Coldham’s Common, with little ramps to help corner cutters.

Temporary path to the right of the building works - but cyclists are better off on the next path to the south.

Temporary path during building work - there's a dropped kerb to the left, but cyclists are better off on the next path to the south.

Changes afoot on Bateman Street?

Temporary traffic lights on Mill Road bridge.

Over the months this pop-up lane closure, which forced left-turning cyclists into the path of through traffic, has gradually moved to the left and is becoming less of a problem.

Cycle way closed approaching the Newmarket Road roundabout.

If you're cycling on the shared-use footway, there's a temporary ramp and diversion. If you're using the on-road cycle lane, you're a bit stuffed.

Resurfaced and marked up for repainting.

I think there's a camera up there to monitor use of the bridge.

Grinding up the ramp to the bridge over the M11.

Two days after an Anglia TV report including Camcycle's Roxanne de Beaux, the precise two potholes featured have been fixed - but none of the others on West Road or the one marked up just around the corner on Grange Road, of course...

Pothole inspection on Grange Road - how long will it be before the hole gets fixed? And why can't this be done by a small electric vehicle?

No traffic lights, no problem.

Ditton Meadows ramp and bridge.

Bikes among these items fished out of the river. The spokes in that wheel have all rotted away but the wheel is still connected to the forks by the axle. The steel in the handlebars has also rotted away leaving only the chrome skin in pl ... [more]

Bikepacking with a fit model, no backpack and a bike without a rack? Yeah right, Sunday Times, totally plausible.

Pram Rebellion temporary art about waste https://xrcambridge.org/pram-rebellion

Many combination locks (which should really be called permutation locks) have a weak point where the inner shaft joins because the metal itself is very weak.

Creative response to the short lived art that was previously placed here but which disappeared after only a few days. See #166510.

Temporary art lamenting lack of progress on climate change and advising vasectomies for lads at Mill Road cemetery.

The last official day of Park Street Cycle Park. The planned redevelopment of the site has been delayed since the developers pulled out at a late stage.

The Chief Engineer and colleague watch as the sixth box culvert (of fourteen) is lowered into place at Newmarket Road. This is a week long closure of the road to build the underpass for the Chisholm Trail.

Big hole in Newmarket Road. Good to see! @camcycle https://t.co/9QhDkemVhB

New arrangement of the Histon Road roadworks, with cars northbound only, to the right of the bollards, and cyclists to the left - but without a sign here.

Markings for improvements (?) on both footways of Madingley Road (and temporary traffic lights)

New development in Romsey.

Chisholm Trail rollout 🤗

Cyclists Dismounts sign at temporary access arrangements and path - but cycling isn't allowed here anyway.

Histon Road is now closed southbound except for cyclists - this is the rather messy arrangement at the southern end.

I think this means that pedestrians and cyclists are sharing the same space for about ten metres - but it shouldn't be necessary to dismount.

Cyclists Please Obey Traffic Signals - motor vehicles are still turning across Histon Road

Histon Road is now closed southbound - most (but not all) of the No Entry signs have Except Cycle signs in place.

Queueing area for Covid-19 vaccinations - cycle stands temporarily out of use, but there are enough others.

The latest development at the Rock Road Rack is yarn bombing.

This stretch of the fen has been flooded for over a month - there's a free-flowing stream to the right but somehow the cycle path seems to be an impermeable barrier to drainage.

The Dutch Bike shop is moving out to Gwydir Street after being here for almost 12 years see #16752.

828 bikes in one day during lockdown (3) - lower than usual

Cycle parking in lockdown (3) - a single bike parked.

Redevelopment on Round Church Street nearing completion.

Lockers to be removed from Park Street Cycle Park at the end of March.

Cycleway closed for utility works - coming in to Cambridge it's easy to see a route through the bus stop lay-by, but heading out people just go across the muddy grass.

A sign outside a large house on Madingley Road pleads for bike lanes.

At least one sign now accepts that a modal filter on Panton St isn't a closure to all vehicles.

Not the largest lorry to be driven into the city centre but I can't help thinking that vehicles of this size and larger (and some that are a bit smaller too) shouldn't be allowed in. This one stopped here for sometime.

There's been criticism of the Covid-19 testing programme for being offered only to people in cars, but here in Cambridge there is also cycle parking.

Traffic flow has been reversed through the Histon Road roadworks. This gap is how cyclists are meant to rejoin the road network.

Traffic calming being installed - it's fairly obvious, but when the signs say Road Closed, they don't include cyclists and pedestrians.

Cambridge market open again with restrictions encouraging physical distance between shoppers.

Two-way cycling is now permitted in Panton Street, but the right-turn from Lensfield Road is not facilitated by any gap in the hashing. (Note: need to double-check whether there is any sign prohibiting a right-turn here.)

Snakey Path blocked, but cleared a few days later at #161084

Coldham’s Common ground examination work, marking the start of construction of the Chisholm Trail.

Preparing for the underpass of Newmarket Road near the Leper Chapel.

Coldham’s Common work has started on the Chisholm Trail.

Biden my path! - Panton Street opens to two way cycling on #inaugaurationday hurray! The sign has 'trail' rather than 'trial'.

Cambridge market, where The Bikeman and other bike shops operate is temporarily closed because of controversial COVID-19 measures.

Standpipe in Mil Road, fire at Hope Street yard.

Fire at Hope Street yard behind the bike shop.

The Bicycle Ambulance has moved to Ditton Walk, see #160634.

BMX / skateboarding track very popular and it’s still fenced off and does not appear to be officially open as yet.
