Temporary 'widening' of the pavement for social distancing purposes. These barriers don't go all the way to the curve at the top of Sidney Street, but they do show that this can be done without inconveniencing buses but helping pedestrians. ... [more]

The markings have been removed at this crossing over Shelford Road, as have all the cycle lanes on both sides of the road. There are white markings indicating the county council intends to replace them.

Cambridgeshire County Council has removed the cycle lane markings on Shelford Rd, apparently as part of their response to Covid-19 - no idea what they plan to replace them with, but it doesn't seem to make much sense as yet.

These works had a misleading Road Closed sign - the pedestrian walkway was still open, so people walking or walking their bikes could still get through fine.

The county council doesn't have the money to fix this broken-up road, but the city council clearly has money for a bit of beautification. Only in disfunctional Britain!

Interesting article from 1997 from the Cambridge Evening News about the closure of Bridge Street. The headline is 'Road Closure less chaotic than feared.'

Two car transporters parked on the cycleway. At least they're not on the footway.

This is what Mill Road looks like when England are playing a knock-out game in the World Cup finals - no motor vehicles, a few cyclists - but it could be like this all the time with a closure near the railway bridge.

Road closure has been in place for a while - why not just make it permanent?

Gonville Place temporary reverts in practice to two-way operation, as it used to be 15 years ago. People seemed to cope. Can it stay this way, to provide Space for Cycling?

Bizarre - no motor traffic at all at lunchtime less than two weeks before Christmas (but five coaches waiting on yellow lines on Pembroke St).

Good practice - police outrider stopping a Santa-themed motorbike rally well short of the pedestrian/cycle crossing on Fen Causeway.

The speed indicator on the newly reopened Tenison Road (now a 20mph road) showed me as riding at 21mph. I'm sure I wasn't much over 15mph. As if the taxi-drivers will take any notice anyway.

What has motivated me to go out into the rain is just how rare it is to see the street so clear. Two factors are at play here: holiday time and planned repainting of the lines.
