  • Barriers to cycling in South Lynn

    Created by MJR // 0 threads

    South Lynn is infested by barriers that cause unsuspecting cyclists to crash into them, often causing damage and injury. Some of them have visible crash-damage to their paint work.

    There are two different styles present in South Lynn: tight slaloms and handlebar-grabbers. Most of them are pointless and can never stop any motorcycles because they can just access the routes from other points that do not have barriers.

    They should all be removed and replaced with single central bollards to prevent car access.

  • New barrier on Addenbrookes busway bridge

    Created by Finlay KM // 1 thread

    A new set of barriers has appeared on the hospital side of the usway bridge at Addenbrookes.
    Creates the usual set of problems for cargo bikes and less confident bike users, with the added bonus of being on a steep hill that ices up regularly, and right next to a busway with a record of squishing people who fall onto it.

  • King's Parade anti-terrorism barriers

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    The Councils are proposing that King's Parade have some kind of anti-terrorism blockage, presumably to prevent a car being driven at speed into a large number of pedestrians.

    Clearly it is important that cycle access is not impeded unduly.

  • Toucan crossing at Brooms Rd/Barrie Ave

    Created by Rhian // 1 thread

    Make the crossing from the Brooms Road path onto the signed cycle route up Barrie Avenue a toucan crossing, and remove the guard rails so that bikes can use that short stretch of pavement to reach Barrie Avenue

  • Barriers on York Race course

    Created by becm // 1 thread

    Barriers across the cycle track that are impassable and dangerous.

    I took my daughter for a cycle ride from York down the Solar System and while we were crossing the race course we attempted to ride through the barriers, my daughter failed to get around and in falling off awkwardly under the barrier hit the back of her head under the helmet on the metal bar. Race goes helped us but the race marshall ignored us.

    I understand there are some problems with this section of the route but if route should either be passable or shut, its dangerous in its current format. Could someone post up what the situation is so I can contact the council and Sustrans.

  • Skeldergate Bridge

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    It is impossible to travel on a cycle from Clifford's Tower to the other side of Skeldergate Bridge, without going around the entire Fishergate Gyratory - a really unpleasant and unnecessarily long experience. The alternative is to push your cycle over the bridge using narrow pavements and being hemmed in by barriers: impossible for people with limited mobility, or non-standard cycles.

  • Lovers Loan barriers and kerbs

    Created by Sefton // 1 thread

    The Lovers Loan shared path through the Grange has at least 5 very tight barriers along its length, and missing dropped kerbs - especially at the crossing of Dick Place. Removing barriers or widening them would make it much more easy to use for bikes, buggies and wheelchairs. Even some double pushchairs don't fit!

  • Cycle barriers

    Created by FrenchyF // 0 threads

    Pointless and obstructive barriers on footpath near The Murrays Brae. Impossible to traverse with a trailer, tandem or tagalong.

  • Cycle barriers

    Created by FrenchyF // 1 thread

    Barriers/chicanes on footpath which make it difficult for people with mobility issues to use these paths. They are also tricky for children on bikes to navigate, or if you are pushing a bike.

  • Thames bridges counter-terrorism barriers

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Since the horrific attacks that took place on Westminster Bridge, and most recently London Bridge, the Metropolitan Police have installed temporary barriers on many central London bridges.

    LCC is fully supportive of the need to take urgent steps to provide extra protection for Londoners and visitors to our city. But we also believe it's right that we look at these measures, that have had to go in very rapidly, to see both what lessons need to be learned for future Highways schemes in the capital, and to see what, if any, tweaks can be undertaken to ensure these barriers can provide the extra security needed as well as allow people, especially London's large number of cycling commuters, to continue to cycle safely with minimal disruption - ideally even with enhanced safety and/or provision.

    Now we want your ideas of any tweaks, modifications or other measures that can be brought forward on the bridges affected so far, and given the measures in so far, to provide vital measures to protect against terrorist attacks, but also to enhance safety and provision for those walking and cycling, and to mitigate the negative effects of the measures so far.

  • Chicane barriers on shared use path

    Created by Andrew Butler // 1 thread

    There are a number of chicane barriers along this shared use path, however the barriers are very close together making them extremely tight and awkward to pass through on a standard bicycle without dismounting. People on larger bicycles would have no chance. There are 4 barriers in total, 3 of them along the short stretch of the NCR5. In the picture there is another barrier in the distance and another behind, the forth is on the bend further down the path.

  • Barriers on cycle route under dual carriageway off Weston St

    Created by Sam Wakeling // 2 threads

    The nominated cycle route to avoid the University roundabout goes down Weston St and under the underpass. Entry and exit to this underpass is obstructed by metal barriers.

    These make the route inconvenient for all people using bikes, and impossible to access for some recumbent, cargo bike, trailer or multi-wheeled disabled cycle users.

  • Obstructed Path

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    The multiple barriers here achieve nothing. All that is needed is the fence adjacent to the carriageway, and even that is debatable (since the road ends here). However, they do make cycling at best difficult and at worst impossible. Cycling should be encouraged here as the path is next to a school. Cycling to school would improve the life-long health of the children, and reduce the numbers of "school run" cars parked in Teazel Avenue, engines idling.

  • Anti-Cycling Barriers

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    These barriers make life awkward for pedestrians, as well as cyclists. It would be better if they were removed. Germany has opened up paths such as this to cyclists, and it hasn't resulted in blood on the streets. It has encouraged cycling, however.

  • Cut-through on Lugtrout Lane

    Created by Bracken VanRyssen // 0 threads

    Currently there are pedestrian fences, bollards and curbs separating the two sections of Lugtrout Lane, preventing easy access from one section to the next and avoiding cycling along the 40 mph plus Damson Parkway. This would be an ideal point for some dropped curbs and appropriately spaced bollards to increase permeability for cyclists. There is clearly latent demand for a decent cut-through as the area to the left of the railings has had the grass worn away by the imprint of bicycle tyres.

  • Gaywood Clock Junction

    Created by MJR // 0 threads

    This junction complex obstructs key desire lines between the Gayton Road cycle track, the shops and National 1. It also has acknowledged air quality problems. The design is a relic of 1980s car-based thinking which even shoved the historic clock to one side

    The suggested diversions for Gayton Road - National 1 cycle journeys are a long way round on inferior roads and tracks, plus they don't serve the shops.

    In 2014, Advanced Stop Lines are being added to two approaches to the Queen Mary Road junction, but they only have left-hand entry and crush barriers remain on most corners. (County drawing ref PJ1074-TS-001A)

    This area is crying out for a redesign that discourages through motor traffic and gives more protected space for cycling and walking.

  • Barriers between cycle path and housing estate

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    The cycle path across the top of the golf course has no barriers at either end but does not seem to suffer from abuse by motorcyclists. However at two or three locations along the path there are staggered half-barriers on paths which lead to the housing estate to the north.

    Barriers like this cause problems for longer cycles, such as tandems and recumbent cycles, as well as for families with child trailers or tag-alongs. Such barriers should preferably be removed and we need to seek to ensure that new developments do not introduce further barriers.

  • 'Quick Wins' - minor cycling infrastructure improvements in Camden

    Created by George Coulouris // 2 threads

    Camden officers have indicated that they would like to receive prioritised list of suggestions for (very) minor improvements throughout the borough that will make cyclists feel better catered for. Examples of changes that will be considered:
    - dropped kerbs
    - obstructive barriers (i.e. anti-motor cycle barriers)
    - stretches of poor road surface (such that you have slow down on a Brompton or weave around holes)
    - Feeders into ASLs that are too short or non-mandatory

    Changes that shouldn't be suggested for this initiative include:
    - anything that would require a local consultation
    - anything that involves changes to parking provision
    - individual pot-holes

    To compile a list, we want suggestions from members. The Council's deadline is Monday November 25th. So can we have members' suggestions by Wednesday November 20th please. That will allow time for us to compile a list and circulate it here for comment.
