Unofficial 20 mph signs have been screwed to a telegraph pole and a tree on Thoday Street outside the pub. Is it related to #107294 I wonder?

Builders going to work by bike? Only in Cambridge!

Cambridge's first cycle barometer on Gonville Place

This pedestrian/cycle route from Sheep's Green is, I think, not quite as busy as the one towards Lammas Land but nonetheless, folk may have views about this idea. I imagine the tables and chairs would be directly outside the restaurant, fac ... [more]

Clare College bikes tagged with a plastic tag

The erection of wayfinding fingerpostlings, on the corner of Sussex and Hobson Streets. These wayfinding tools are minute-based, and not in distances.

A poster in a doctors surgery. Simon suggested I add it with the caption: note that this poster makes no claims about how effective they may be.

WalkIt poster on the back of a bus in Cambridge - perhaps CycleStreets should do this too?

Not exactly an attractive bit of street furniture, but hopefully this (non-illuminated) bollard will be more resistant to vandalism than the conventional bollards ( #18299 )

A "Cycle Lane" sign with no cycle lane removed in June 2009 left its marks during 11 years - #17383. For previous images see #8610, #16529, #16531. The sign was the "spot the cycle lane" feature in the Cambridge Cycling Campaign newsletter ... [more]

Sign: "Beware oncoming cyclists" on Kingston Road, Cambridge, where contraflow cycling is permitted.

Mill Road / Kingston Street Junction. A cycle lane painted on the road is being considered here. A survey has shown that 1/3 of motorists do not understand the meaning of the "no motor vehicles" signs used here.

Turn left onto Pembroke Street from Free School Lane (606, 607, 962.1). The sign seems to have been straightened since 2003. In a new installation, the "One way" plate would be replaced with "Except cycles" (Traffic Signs Manual ch 3 para ... [more]

Strange new Sign for St Andrews Street contraflow bus and cycle lane. See #13663 for corrected version.

The car park is actually a useful shortcut from Gonville Place to Mill Road...

No entry to Lion Yard. Note sign on LHS only.

Turn left ahead (except cycles) from Sidney Street to Hobson Street.

No right turn from Trumpington Street into Bene't Street. It's possible this sign should have an "except cycles" plate now that two-way cycling is allowed in Bene't Street. Also a temporary "priority to other direction" sign for the Libra ... [more]

Inverted "priority to vehicles from other direction" sign on Trumpington Street. Not clear what it's meant to mean.

No entry to Corn Exchange Street. Note sign on LHS only.

No entry to Market Hill. Note sign on RHS only.

Christ's Pieces - Commons Registration notice

One of the new 'Taxi Hailing Points'

Close-up of the notice on a Taxi Hailing Point'

Variable restriction sign, but at about 18:00. I don't know when these messages actually change, or what else (if anything) the top section of the sign every displays.

The entrance to the pedestrian zone, St Andrew's Street at its junction with Emmanuel St. There is a similar sign on the other side of the road. Note "No waiting except in signed bays". The white square below the sign was, until recently ... [more]

Closeup of the variable restriction sign, midday.

Sign entitled "The Roman Settlement at Vicar's Farm"

This large sign has two posts which are quite obstructive on the pavement.

The stripes on this post add a bit of colour to this otherwise grim area.





It seems that there are about 50 such signs in the city centre.





Mill Road, junction with Gwydir Street and St. Barnabas Road. Notice the 'Cyclists on Diversion' sign, while the cycle bridge at the railway station is under repair. sign










No Bycs in Corridor Fire Hazard by Inspector' sign



Signs like this are a legal requirement when a side road joins a main road that has cycle lanes.


Cycle Lane sign in the distance. Apparently these signs have to be installed at all junctions where a side road meets a road that has a cycle lane.

One end of a shared-use pavement cycleway. The blue sign one bollard says 'shared use', the other says 'end of cycle route'.


The no left turn now has a cyclists exemption, replacing the older sign as shown at #6104.
