The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

The new cycle traffic signal at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road. Note the Ahead Only sign forbidding left and right turns, including into Hopehill Road for accessing the supermarket.

The finished replacement crossing on North Woodside Road at Maryhill Road. Note the Ahead Only sign on the traffic signal.

Insecure residential cycle parking.

Benches and an overflowing bin, but no cycle route signage at the junction of Ferry Road and the cycle path to Kelvinhaugh Road.

Placemaking (I think) at Ferry Road. Benches have been installed next to the bin, but still no restoration of direction signage (such as in #37216) for the cycle routes.

Insecure cycle parking in Hastie Street.

Rock Road

Love Lane - a bridleway out of Fowey, a bit narrow and slippery in places.

Remaining barrier restricting access Taff Trail (May 2022).

Barrier free, motorcycle deterrence signage and cctv.

Cycle parking in the centre of St Ives

Three streets in St Ives that are miraculously free of parked cars.

A nice little cut-through in St Ives - except for the parked cars.

An unusual e-cargo bike in St Ives

Start of byway - I haven't tested it, but cyclists should be able to get through to the Helford River at the head of Porth Navas Creek.

Helston's main street closed all day for Flora Day.

The A394 in Helston briefly closed for Flora Day - only the 7am dance comes this way, the others stay closer to the town centre.

Traffic sign violations.

Cycle lane markings have appeared. Sign still wrong.

Well-hidden cycle stands alongside the platform at St Ives station.

Access to a road a couple of hundred metres away - but you can't take a bike either way on the coastal footpath.

In theory I suppose that's a modal filter up there. You could get a bike to the coast here but can't take it either way on the coastal footpath.

One of Penzance's new Cycle Hubs near the bus station.

A smaller version of Penzance's new cycle hubs

Pedestrian link from Causewayhead, Penzance, to new cycle parking in a car park.

One of Penzance's new Cycle Hubs, in a car park near Causewayhead.

.. but what is this nonsense? (see #182651) - Cyclists Dismount sign where cars are obviously free to move around - on the way to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance. (And why so far above the ground?)

So far so good... sign to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance

Modal filter, Penzance

[Image taken 17.5.22] Monks Cross Drive, Huntington/York. Context and links: #182647.

[Image taken 17.5.22] Monks Cross Drive, Huntington/York. A fallen branch and two smaller ones obstruct the pavement at a bus stop. Location: #182648. I reported it to CYC in person today as I did this: #182646. Other images today and links ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.22] Jockey Lane, close to the entrance to Sainbury's off the roundabout, Huntington/York. Broken glass. It was here on Sunday too. I reported it in person to CYC at around 16.30 today in the hope it could get cleared up qu ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.22] Aldi, Kathryn Avenue, Huntington/York. There are good points about the cycle provision here: #175243 but they are too close together (measurements: #170557). They are also often oversubscribed. As today. Two people (ju ... [more]

Tiny Sheffield stands near the rebuilt entrance to Lidl supermarket. These do not support the bike well, particularly when loading shopping.

Construction of the rebuilt modal filter at North Woodside Road is nearly complete. The road and pedestrian traffic signals have been brought into use, but the cycle signals are still bagged up.

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

Love Lane - a bridleway into Fowey, but it's a bit narrow and slippery in places.

Cut-through towards Netherhall Upper School

University Avenue at the western limit of its reworking. Note the centre line is less restrictive than the lane lines.

[Image taken 22.6.21] Aldi, Kathryn Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. Good points: the racks are Sheffields; no lifting is required to get a cycle in or out; there's no problem with manoeuvring backwards; they are under cover; they are ... [more]

[UPDATE: See: #175976] [Image taken 17.11.21] Monks Cross retail park, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. I hope my meeting in the first week of November 2021, with the retail park asset manager and centre manager, plus the CYC active travel of ... [more]

How does that work? Cycle parking without stands... [see #182655]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Aldi, Kathryn Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. The Sheffields (racks) are under cover - tick. They are quite close to the trolley bay - sufficient that you can keep an eye on your stuff while collecting/returning ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.22] New Lane, York. In 2021 the cycle direction and the shared use signs became completely overgrown. Looks as if they are going the same way in 2022. Other images today and links: #182641.

[Image taken 17.5.22] New Lane looking towards the junction with Malton Road, Huntington/York. The lanes are very narrow. This is a mini yet there is no space to pass a cyclist if there is oncoming motor traffic. Speeds can be high (especia ... [more]

  • Icon 182675 Cycleway exists but is not signed as such. A very quick win with a few signs.
  • Icon 182674 Cycleway is badly overgrown and neglected. Needs TLC
  • Icon 182673 Allow cycling along this path so families out cycling can avoid a nasty unprotected crossing of the A414 to access Panshanger Park from the Cole Green Way
  • Icon 182662 Path or cycle route needed, slower speed limit. Lots of people walking and cycling to and from the village for work, school.
  • Icon 182628 Train runs over a food delivery robot.
  • Icon 182626 A508 needs a cyclepath
  • Icon 182623 A508 is dangerous and intimidating for cyclists. Need cyclepath to keep those in villages connected to nearby towns.
  • Icon 182552 Allow cycling on the old railway from here to Arnside to enable families on cycles to avoid the traffic on the B5282
  • Icon 182551 Allow cycling on the old railway path so families on cycles can avoid the traffic on the B5282
  • Icon 182550 Repaint contraflow cycle path so children are safe using it and enforce no parking as cars block it. Not a good example of a safe route to a primary school when it could be.
  • Icon 182549 Section of road here has cycle lanes (non mandatory) to either side. Should be reconfigured with a two way cycle path from Ashford Rd to the canal path with one safe crosing. There is no safe right turning pocket off the road to the canal when heading south on the A588.
  • Icon 182548 Lines and symbols need repainting to make it clear that downhill is on the road and uphill is contraflow on the shared pavement. Most markings are very faded.
