Connection at Ditton Meadows under construction.

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...

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.

Starts Monday 20th October and lasts till around 15th November by my calculation.

For two or three weeks now the area has been plastered with diversion signs for roadworks on Pemberton Terrace and Francis Passage which barely seem to be happening, and certainly aren't affecting cyclists.

Resurfacing Park Terrace - will there be anything in it for cyclists?

Resurfacing the riverside route - no sign for cyclists, but the pedestrian detour works just as well (barriers removed by 4.30 pm).

Cyclists dismount signs at construction works

Cyclists Dismount and wait your turn to get past this construction site.

Signs at roadworks on Milton Road. A mixture of good practice and poor.

Signs at roadworks on Milton Road warning drivers of cycles and not to overtake.

Cycle track kept open (the yellow sign) during road works.

Incorrect sign at road works on Milton Road by Skanska/National Grid. There is no need to dismount, either use the road or use the shared use path. I phoned the information line and was told that this was for safety and insurance reasons ... [more]

Roadworks on Barton Rd - the left-turn-only sign has not been covered up so legally the only way into Newnham Croft is by turning right into this side road or the next one - but there are no signs to say so. In fact I think cars are able to ... [more]

Diversion signs for cars - no mention of the fact that cyclists can simply cross the Barton Rd and head west on the cycle track as normal

Barton Road closed in one direction for two weeks for totally unnecessary resurfacing - while potholes across Cambridge go unrepaired. Low trench cut across the cycle crossing.

Moving pre-placed bollards out to close the bus/cycle lane for roadworks after the morning rush - very kind of them, but there's next to no traffic outbound in this lane in the mornings.

Cycle lane closed so that cars can use it to pass builders' vans.

Roadworks in full swing on Catharine Street.

Roadworks completely block the cycle path, which mean that cyclists heading soutbound (towards the camera) and wishing to turn right towards the DNA path to Great Shelford (as this cyclists is doing), need to ride around the roundabout rat ... [more]

Cyclists in the contraflow lane are told to dismount and use the footway - but there's also an arrow directing traffic around the sewer works! Of course the ideal would have been to route cars via Norfolk St and leave Bateman St open for cy ... [more]

A tight turn at sewer repairs on Bateman St - no warning that cyclists might be coming the other way.

Cambridgeshire Highways have put their temporary sign in the cycle lane creating a pinch point and a danger for cyclists on East Road

How are they going to resurface this flooded cycle lane?

And they did, amazingly enough.

Incorrect sign near gas main works on Silver Street. Incorrect because cars can still proceed here. There is another one on Queen's Road approaching the junction which has a temporary 4-way signal in operation. The pedestrian crossings are ... [more]

When this bridge was partially closed to motor traffic because of major roadworks gridlock was forecast, these campaigners went out to send a message that there are other ways to travel. ... [more]

Roadworks on King's Parade

Correct signage at sewer works - a very short distance to push a bike

Because of roadworks, car parking has been removed from the other side of the road - but because of the way the cones are placed it gains about 1 measly foot of extra space! But it makes a decent cycle lane (apart from the fallen cone) !

Regent Terrace crossing being upgraded

Looks like these road works will still be in place for the #ReachRide. We'll have to dismount and walk, but there's not much space.

Looks like these road works will still be in place for the #ReachRide. We'll have to dismount and walk, but there's not much space.

Cycling in this direction is not normally allowed. It looks like these roadworks will be in place during the #ReachRide this year.

Why are some cyclists so determined to make themselves (and the rest of us) so unpopular?

Cyclists at Anglia Water works. Sidney St

Wrong-way cyclist wheeling bike past roadworks, Sidney St

Market Street is closed because of gas main works, but why temporary traffic lights are thought necessary here, I cannot imagine.

Victoria Road is closed due to a collapsed sewer - but cyclists always find their way through.
