The mural #33333 shining through the demolition of Park Street cycle park.

Cycle Lane Suspended, because where else are you going to put the temporary traffic lights?

Road works by Cambridge Water at the Station Road/Hills Road junction - luckily many people are working from home. It would be nice to think that the dreadful potholes will be properly fixed, but I'm not optimistic.

Site of a fatal collision between a lorry and a cyclist. See #174673.

Signs warning pedestrians to divert because of road works around the corner at this busy roundabout near Addenbrooke's Hospital.

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 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

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.

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.

The current state of the long-term roadworks on Histon Road - northbound traffic lane, 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.

Connection at Ditton Meadows under construction.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cyclists Dismount at the Fendon Road roundabout roadworks

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.

Temporary two-way traffic on Corn Exchange St due to utility works on Bene't St

Utility works on Bene't St

Utility works on Bene't St (and a motorbike in the cycle parking)

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.

Chisholm Trail construction site.

It's hard to see how it can possibly take four weeks to resurface this cut-through.

This may be a new segregated link.

Chisholm Trail preparation.

Chisholm Trail preparation.

Access maintained for pedestrians, and thus wheeling bikes on the gravel.

Checking the Roadworks website, the whole of Bridge Street will be closed to repair the road surface. (Hooray!) Edit to add: The repair didn’t happen. Odd.

Somebody didn't use a spell checker... (Also, sign for info.) Edit to add: Spelling now corrected and the date changed to 29th Oct.

Cycle lane closed and used for pedestrians while new crossing lights are installed.

It looks like the section that will be closed is from here to the side gate into Trinity College (and the library.) That's where the other sign is.

Well, well... the morning after I posted #89287 asking where the north-south cycle route was, a section of kerb was being removed to instal a dropped kerb (presumably).

Unimpressed by this. It's two lanes either way as Anglian Water continue their work, but I can’t help feeling there must be a better way of organising this. It isn't clear what pedestrians are supposed to do coming from the Hills Road end ... [more]

Footway closed for construction of a shared-use cycleway.

I remember an announcement that the new Station Square was open...

Good practice to keep the foot/cycleway open.

Barton Road cycleway half-flooded by a burst water main

I appreciate that these were emergency repairs on a burst water main, but it would have been helpful to leave more space for bikes.

Construction of the link from the cycle bridge to Cambridge station. No real need for cyclists to dismount, and, of course, they don't.

A temporary pedestrian corridor during works to nearby buildings - with a cyclists dismount notice.

The irony of it - while roadworks for the new segregated cycle lane involve unnecessarily blocking the present cycle lane, the roadworks for the car-friendly access to the NorthWest Cambridge development show good practice with Do Not Overt ... [more]

Will be another bus-stop bypass on Huntingdon Rd. Island built, cycleway next. I passed this on a bike while bus was in stop. Constant stream of 30mph traffic which I had to merge into. Certainly reminded me why the bypass is needed!

Thank you, Skanska - but there's no conflict between cars and cyclists here as there's no need to encroach on the MCL - it's only buses and HGVs that would have problems.

Parking has been temporarily suspended on one side of Adam's Road in order to make it easier for two-way motor vehicle traffic that has been diverted due to Grange Road part-closure. Has this had any detrimental impact? Some users have b ... [more]

Utility works have narrowed the shared use on Milton Road at the same time as Busway extension works on the other side of the road.
