Photo listing : obstructions (event)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This listing only shows photos within Cambridge.
Go to the national CycleStreets photo listings for photos beyond.

I think this taxi driver genuinely thought he could drive down Bateman St (contraflow cycling only from this point). So much for local knowledge.

@Cambs_Traffic @SmithsonHill You mean this "obstruction"? https://t.co/P7ljnxfCiU

A campaigner marking the success of an #absoluteBollards campaign to get rid of the shin-gougers which are now in the down position within those diamonds. There's a new taller bollard in place. Hmm, I think the diamonds need removing now ... [more]

Caution: ducks on cycle path

Just in case you imagined that Tenison Road really had been fully reopened last week.

Important cycle route closed for construction since June.

Blatant obstruction of Hills Road cycle track by a private vehicle. The driver claimed to work for Cambs Highways and to be dealing with a collapsed manhole cover in the verge, but I had seen him walk out of Holbrook Road and speak to a res ... [more]

Reality Checkpoint under maintenance

Construction of new building finally completed, and Abbey Street cycle crossing still obstructed.The two cars on the left are on double yellow lines.

Cycleway blocked for building work. No warning signs that I've seen.

Amazing - someone left a car on the footway across my only access for at least an hour today.

National Grid lorry blocking a very busy cycle route to and from the station. https://twitter.com/roxyfromoz/status/703248314729418752

Access to the station cycle parking closed off with no alternative route yet signposted - although there are marshalls ready to direct cyclists.

New poles (which will eventually indicate the new route to the station cycle parking) immediately used for a failed attempt at cycle parking.

Contraflow cycle lane closed for building work (presumably 'Use New Street Road' means use the carriageway of New St, not a cycle lane).

Delivery at the University Arms construction site, 9:30am. Reversing with no banksman at rear, blocked cycle lane for ~5mins. Was refused entry, waited on the double yellows at Pizza Hut until 10am, went round the block and entered site.

All the cycle bypasses on St Philip's Road have been closed off without warning signs - but this van driver was happy to wait for the ride to the Cambridge Cycling Campaign's 20th birthday picnic.

Cattle grids permit easy access for cycles to routes over the commons, but not easy access for cattle to the roads

An unmarked police car is parked for non-emergency business on the footway where parking, waiting and loading are prohibited. Vehicles passing are forcing cyclists off the road.

South Cambs taxi 1101 obstructing the cycle lane in Downing Street.

Through route from Abbey Street to Newmarket Road blocked by parked vehicles

Flooded underpass, Fen Causeway

This sign should refer to the Fen Causeway footway ahead, now being removed - someone moved it to close the route into the city, and I took it down altogether.

Overflow from the Granta - not much of a problem for cyclists, maybe for pedestrians...

Cycle lane obstructed by police car, too close to the traffic lights.

In 3 minutes I photographed at least 20 cyclists on the grass of Lammas Land due to the road closure.

Cyclist Dismount? How about just cycling around the roadwork...

Blatant obstruction of mandatory cycle lane by Ford BF58 JFX while driver popped to the shops

Two parked lorries forcing cars into the contraflow cycle lane.

This is the kind of obstruction we should be worrying about, not bikes parked on the footway.

Everyone has to wait when the buses get stuck on Hobson Street.

Flooding on Jesus Green - in July! Not a major obstruction; quite passable but care needed.

Sign for a temporary closure

See clip at http://youtu.be/v6Yuzyi2BgI Really do not understand the reaction here, short of wanting to complain. I approach along SHARED path on the (traditional) left side. They stare at me, clearly indicating they had seen me, but ... [more]

Busway maintenance track blocked by maintenance vehicle (how dare they?) - in fact we crept past on the right.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkFR3A8bLmE Yet more experiences of Sedgwick Avenue. This time it's a car that must just get ahead. I could see the oncoming traffic ahead as it passed and immediately knew that it was going ... [more]

Nasty little cycle lane in a bend obstructed by traffic cones and "Diverted traffic" signs.

Fort St George Bridge closed during Strawberry Fair

Cyclists Dismount sign on Downing Street, Cambridge

BT van blocking cycle cut-through

How anti-social! Why does this person feel entitled to take up two spaces?

Closure of St Andrew's St

Van AJ56GRK parked in mandatory cycle lane on Downing Street, Cambridge

Unreasonable flooding on the shared-use path north of the Trumpington Rd/Brooklands Ave junction.

Cycle contraflow completely blocked by MACC Building Solutions van. Occupants, in back of van, said they had to block the cycle lane because there was nowhere else to park.

CAT Scaffolding Ltd with number plates V353 FHW obstructing a Mandatory Cycle Lane despite space on the driveway. Cyclist forced into main lane with speeding cars and lorries. See also #22296

Taxi AG04 LCN with license 1051 parked in contra-flow cycle lane with double yellow line. So much about professional drivers.

Flooded cycle lane entering Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Totally selfish and illegal parking to deliver at St Faith's School - no reason not to pull in a few metres ahead, off the zig-zags, and the road would not have been obstructed.

Daytime closure of cycle access to Addenbrookes while new accommodation is under construction.

Cambridgeshire Police Scientific Support unit parked in a mandatory cycle lane (MCL). Officer had just returned to the car to fill in forms. There was plenty of space (see #19172) to park the car with number plates AF52 VMO without blocking ... [more]

Police van blocks contraflow cycle lane on Downing St. whilst officers attend Revolution Bar. Time 09:15

Wonderful - a warning sign for the car traffic which isn't being impeded, but nothing at all for cycle traffic in the contraflow lane which has actually been totally blocked.

Not as bad as it looks - only the rear taxi (LC52 WYK) is over-ranking.

Apex Scaffolding truck parked in Mandatory Cycle Lane - but would it be any safer if they parked on the other side and carried the poles across??

Queen's Road closed for tree works - the northbound car is trying to go on the wrong side of the cones (it did reverse and go the right way).

Downing Street blocked. Probably no better arrangement here, as the works proceeded well into the road.

This parking by the police is contrary to the Highway Code, though probably not illegal.

Unpassable underpass

Taxis over-ranking in St Andrew's St, Cambridge

Signs near gas road works next to the Huntingdon Road/White House Lane junction.

Lorry unloading in Emmanuel Street, Cambridge is in the cycle lane and directly in front of the "No loading at any time" sign.

CambridgeOnIce's German Market occupies a key walking and cycling route without any preparations to guide cyclist and pedestrians around it. See also #15475, #15476 and #15478.

Revolution are at it again. Staff think it is funny when someone complains at the illegal, dangerous and obstructive unloading

Hobson Street closed at North End due to collapsed sewer. One has to walk the bike along the pavement to get past the works.

Road closed due to collapsed sewer.

Hobson Street is closed a little bit further on from here due to a collapsed sewer. No Entry signs covered up.

Memo to self - do not call for a fire engine when the Newnham Croft school pick-up combines with the permanent jam of builders' vans to block the roads. It's not as if there weren't parking spaces around the corner.

Council 'City Rangers' van obstructs the railway/guided bus underpass on Milton Road (NCN11).
