@camcycle Tenison Road now. The message about that signage still not getting through to contractors https://t.co/x2ok5nDNJX

New slip lanes taking shape at the Histon Road/Gilbert Road junction

New slip lanes taking shape at the Histon Road/Gilbert Road junction

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 cycleway laid on the grass on Coldham’s Common.

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.

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.

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?

Ditton Meadows ramp and bridge.

Histon Road

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

Segregated cycleway under construction on Histon Road

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)

Chisholm Trail rollout 🤗

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

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

Redevelopment on Round Church Street nearing completion.

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.

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.

Work in progress to make the 'Robin Hood junction' more pedestrian (but not cycle) friendly. Four-way lights control and sometimes long queues. OK to cycle with the traffic, but a nightmare to work out where to cross if wheeling or walking.

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.

Link under construction to the new Chisholm Trail bridge to Chesterton and Cambridge North station.

Some mistake surely? Northbound cycle lane, northbound general traffic lane, no southbound cycle lane.

Abbey-Chesterton bridge craning into place. At this moment the engineers were waiting for the all-clear from Network Rail to confirm that the bridge could be moved into place as it is quite close to their bridge. I think power to the ove ... [more]

Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - airborne

'Cycleway Suspended' sign due to roadworks and temporary traffic lights - it looks well enough organised here, but there was a queue of cars all around the Waitrose car park where the lights were only letting a few cars out at a time.

Unloading crane parts

Crane parts delivered.

Coldham’s Common work has started at the entrance from Newmarket Road.

Connection at Ditton Meadows under construction.

New ramp in place.

Yet more gas works :(

On the plus side they haven't put a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign here, which is to be commended. On the downside, we have lots of signs on the pavement. We need a LTN/change in the law.

Construction at Cambridge University Library - the sign at the other end only refers to pedestrians, not cyclists.

Road Closed for sinkhole repairs - but of course (on Sunday morning) pedestrians and cyclists are actually passing freely.

Road Closed (sign blown over) - I'm not sure this is part of the Histon Road roadworks.

Temporary arrangements at the south end of Histon Road and two contractor's vehicles largely blocking the contraflow cycle lane.

Work on the Coton path. Shouldn't close the path and clear through the West Cambridge site. It's sewer works. Great job for a hot day!

The works have started on the Mill Road bridge bus gate.

You might think that this was a post-Covid19 pop-up cycle lane, but no, this is Cambridge, it's just for some inactive work on the footway outside Aldi.

Abbey Chesterton bridge on the Chisholm Trail

Good that they mentioned the cycle lane!

Future link to Darwin Green?

More lockdown roadworks around the corner on Market Square - but cyclists going straight ahead are supposed to stop too.

Again! roadworks at the Mill Road/Gwydir St junction.

Chisholm Trail bridge construction during lockdown, there were a few workers here today.

Just a brief interruption in fact, where the temporary traffic lights are placed. There are a lot of road works under way during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Conventional footways by the look of it at this new access to the West Cambridge site - no cycle provision.

Gas works on Newnham Road during the Covid-19 lockdown - virtually no motor traffic to be held up.

Lots of roadworks going on during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Gas works on Newnham Road - the Covid-19 lockdown makes this a pretty stressfree time to block the road.

Building the mould to hold the Chesterton landing of the Chisholm Trail bridge.

Roadworks blocking the Kingston St contraflow route - lots of cyclists are getting past on the footway by the pub.

BREAKING NEWS: the CBC barrier is coming down! Thanks to John from @CTCCambridge for this picture and to the many people and organisations who have made this happen. Let's continue to work together to create a better, safer and accessible j ... [more]

Apart from wheelchair users, I can't see anyone much taking this lengthy diversion.

Reasonably well signed roadworks on Station Road, Cambridge

Mill Road bridge may be open again, but the gas work continues. If the delivery van wasn't there bikes would only have to be wheeled a short distance.

Chisholm Trail route under construction between Newmarket Road and Ditton Meadows.

Ditton Meadows - this route is closed for construction of the bridge.

This route across the railway footbridge remains open, but is briefly closed to allow heavy plant and other construction vehicles to cross.

Photo taken thru the Heras fencing - the jetty surface and railing have been removed.

Jetty route now closed.

Last few days of this jetty.

Early work on the Chisholm Trail.

Having rebuilt the first half of the path to Chaucer Road, the contractors are now working on the other half.
