  • Rubble used to fill potholes in Daws Lane

    Created by Justin // 1 thread

    Someone appears to have dumped large rocks and rubble into the pot holes in Daws lane. This might make the area more passable to cars that use it to access the allotments but poses a severe danger to cyclist given the size of the rocks, and that the area is poorly lit and frequently flooded.

    I tried reporting the issue to the council but received the response:

    The issue you raised with us is the responsibility of the landowner. Unfortunately we do not have records of who is responsible for this location and we are therefore unable to take any action.

  • Camulodunum Way - Baronswood Way Missing Link

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The sub-LTN 1/20 white line (6.5.2-3) segregated bidirectional cycleway (Table 5-2 & 5-3) along Camulodunum Way (CW) and Baronswood Way (BW) are not connected, leaving unconfident cyclists travelling North/South along CW via the toucan crossing from the new development 202025 unable to continue North to the Town Centre, as advertised in planning documents.

    The gap could be easily filled to the existing standard on CW/BW via footway conversion.

  • 2-way Cycle Tracks - do cyclists use them in the contraflow direction?

    Created by Bruce Lynn // 2 threads

    Observations on the recently opened Cycleway 4 in South London indicate that 25% of cyclists choose NOT to use it in the contraflow direction. This is consistent with the view of many cyclists that it is better to be on the "correct" side of the road.  A short report of the counts on CW4 is at

    I would be interested if anyone else has similar findings. and in general how people feel about 2-way tracks.  TfL seem to like them (use a bit less space, a little cheaper). But if they are significantly less likely to be used than two 1-way tracks, this information might get us better designs.

  • Multiple potholes descending Hills Rd rail bridge

    Created by David Green // 1 thread

    The cycle lane on the Northside of the Hills Rd rail bridge has many potholes where the red tarmac surface is missing. This is extremely hazardous for cyclists to avoid whilst descending with car lanes on either side. You could easily fall off into the path of motor traffic.

  • Harrow 'Northern' Cycle Route

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council is proposing to build a 'Northern Cycle Route', mostly a signed route with minimal intervention and no changes to the road space allocated to motor vehicles. Some of the route follows existing advisory cycle lanes or signed-only routes along busy roads that do not meet cycle design standards. There are a few isolated improvements - small sections of segregated path on verges to connect service roads or other minor roads, and some new parallel zebras, but even these are poorly designed and take cyclists well away from the crossing desire lines.

  • Wealdstone Town Centre Redevelopment

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council is proposing to reroute buses in Wealdstone town centre in order to improve bus reliability. They are also proposing expensive re-modelling of junctions and repaving of the high street, but without any changes to the car circulation plan or new cycle routes.

    There will be a short section of cycle path along a short section of the high street (part of the TfL Quietway), but another section of the high street is becoming one-way with no cycling contraflow. Cycle desire lines to and from the station or Harrow Leisure centre are not catered for at all. Many of the pedestrian desire lines lack formal crossings.

    There are no measures to reduce car traffic or restrict cars from certain roads, beyond the restrictions that exist already. Overall this scheme will do little to increase walking or cycling in Wealdstone.

  • Stow-cum-Quy no cycle path

    Created by Robbie397 // 1 thread

    There is now a nice new fully separated cycle path from the north end of Stow-cum-Quy along Colders Lane and Quy Road, which provides easy access to Anglesey Abbey, Lode, and a useful connection between cycle routes 51 and 11, with onward access to Wicken Fen. This is really great. However, to get onto this path from cycle route 51, just after the Newmarket Road junction with the A14, requires cycling along half a mile of busy, narrow, 30 mph road with no cycleway, and traffic calming (islands) that encourages wreckless overtaking of bicycles. The only safe option is to cycle on a narrow footpath with no signage. 

    Could at least painted cycle lanes be added to the road here, and with a 20 mph speed limit to make the village nicer for cyclists, residents and pedestrians? This could also encourage many more visitors to Anglesey Abbey from Cambridge to go by bike, and to go more regularly, benefiting the National Trust.

  • Closure of Netherhall school off road cyclepath

    Created by Phillip Barnett // 1 thread

    (Originally sent to Camb cyclist mailing list)
    Does anyone know why the off-road cyclepath from Cherry Hinton park to Netherhall school has been closed all week? The northern half of this is locked by gates at both ends, (private land, belonging to school) and is open daily just before school, and just at end of school, half hour at a time, for children to get to school off road. Apparently, the primary school at the south end of the path has objected (don't know why? Maybe worried about possible accidents with their children?)
    So for the first time in decades, it's been closed.
    And so now my children are being forced onto longer routes, on busy schoolrun roads, when they had a perfect off-road route, door to door offroad cyclepath all the way!
    I'm sure it's a backwards step in terms of child safety. I will take it up with the school but wondered if anyone knew what's going on?
    Thanks

  • Turning right: Eastfield Road to St Mary's playing fields

    Created by Rhian // 1 thread

    A quiet cycle route is signed from Annan Road to Calside. This involves two right turns from Rosevale Street to Eastfield Road and then from Eastfield Road to Westfield Road. This second turn feels precarious as people driving towards town often cut the corner making waiting in then middle dangerous. Because it is a wide road people driving behind also try to undertake, again making waiting in then middle dangerous.

  • Errant lamposts and street furniture

    Created by PurpleSue // 2 threads

    I watch in wonder and amazement as the new cycle lane alongside the A41 from Mostyn lights to the zoo is completed - with lamposts in th emiddle of the path - not to mention a three legged road sign which I am sure will make passage impossible.

    I will investigate more and take photos....

  • Radfahrstreifen in der Maßbornstraße zwischen Am Römerbrunnen und Ortsende

    kalle // 0 threads

    Stellungnahme des Magistrats vom 05.02.2016, ST 253

    Um den Bedenken des Ortsbeirates Rechnung zu tragen, schlägt der Magistrat vor, im genannten Straßenabschnitt eine sogenannte Fahrrad-Piktogrammspur zu markieren. Dies meint, dass in regelmäßigen Abständen Fahrradsymbole in beiden Fahrtrichtungen auf die Fahrbahn markiert werden. Die Fahrbahnverengungen in der Nähe des Supermarktes könnten dann zurückgebaut werden. In diesem Kontext wäre eine Veränderung des Beginns der Tempo-30-Zone nicht mehr erforderlich.

    Dem Vorschlag, farbige Schutzstreifen zu markieren, möchte der Magistrat nicht folgen, da eingefärbte Schutzstreifen im Frankfurter Stadtgebiet ausschließlich an unfallträchtigen Kreuzungen markiert werden um einen entsprechenden Aufmerksamkeitswert zu erzielen.

  • Improving Green Dragon Bridge to Riverside

    Created by Chris Howell // 1 thread

    The stretch of NCN51 along Stourbridge Common between the Green Dragon Bridge and Riverside is hopelessly inadequate for the high volume of traffic, too narrow, surfacing badly breaking up with a number of hazards - rowing coaches, cows, joggers with headphones etc.

    Would anyone else support campaigning for a new two way cycle path through that stretch of Stourbridge common to the south of the existing path (through the middle of that bit of common) from the Green Dragon Bridge to an improved access at Riverside, and leave the path by the river to its myriad of other users? Its only going to get busier when the new station opens...

  • Water Street access to Haling Way

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    A proposal has been floating around for a while for a change to this area. The opportunity needs to be taken to avoid the right-angle turn and remove pavement cycling entirely between the parking and the river.

  • Dangerous unsignalled crossing of Rutland Road on Penistone Road cycle path

    Created by Sam Wakeling // 1 thread

    The off-road cycle path along Penistone Road requires you to cross Rutland Road in two stages with no signalled phase. It is a large multi-lane junction and difficult to determine whether approaching motor traffic is about to turn across your path. It is also especially difficult and dangerous to attempt a dash across a large road between motor traffic phases from a standing start on a bike.

    A toucan crossing and realignment to straighten out the current dog-leg between crossing stages would greatly improve safety on the Penistone Road cycle path at this point.

  • Petersfield Green - Widening of path

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    The path running in front of Petersfield Mansions (identified below in red) is only 1.2m wide. This means that when passing each other pedestrians and cyclists often have to use the grass which is problematic when it is wet and muddy. It is also difficult for residents of Petersfield Mansions when exiting their properties as there is very little space for people to manoeuvre around each other.

    Usage of this path has increased over the years with more cyclists using the path to access the cycle racks which have been installed on Bradmore Street as part of the expansion of Anglia Ruskin University. It is therefore proposed to widen the path by 1metre to cater for this increased usage and to improve access from Mill Road with the removal of a short section of railing and the installation of a flush kerb.

    Petersfield is owned by the City Council and the path in question is maintained by the County Council as highway.

    The cost of these works is approximately £20,000 and this project will be joint funded by Cambridge City Council and Anglia Ruskin University.

    The path marked in blue is maintained by the City Council and we hope to improve the surface of this path at the same time if funding can be identified.

    If you have any comments regarding the widening of this path or would like more information please contact cyclingconsultations @ cambridge.gov.uk by 14th September 2015.

  • Donetsk Way tram accidents / off road cycle path?

    Created by Dexter Johnstone // 1 thread

    There have been a number of accidents where the tram lines curve across the road on Donetsk Way as it is not possible to cross them at right angles.

    There is just grass and hedges on either side of the road and so it would be quite easy to install off road cycle paths along Donetsk Way.

  • off road cycle path along Langsett Road?

    Created by Dexter Johnstone // 1 thread

    the off road cycle path along Infirmary Road which currently ends at the Junction with Whitehouse Lane could be extended along Langsett Road on the left hand side of the road as you go away from town towards Hillsborough. At the moment there is just a grass verge from Primrose Hill to Bamford Street.

  • accessing off road cycle path

    Created by Dexter Johnstone // 1 thread

    When cycling towards town along Langsett Road it is difficult/hazardous to get to the off road cycle path on the other side of the road which starts on the corner of Infirmary Road/Whitehouse Lane because you need to cross the tram tracks.

  • Bournville Boating Lake

    Created by Dawes Jaguar // 0 threads

    The paths around the boating lake are already used by cyclists. However, the path shown on the map parallel to my suggested path is narrow and in dangerously poor condition. My suggestion is to create an armoured grass path as shown. The path that heads North at one end should be extended to join it, and the old path removed. This is to improve safety at what is currently a blind junction.
    It would be good to address the bridge at the western end of the suggested path, which has wheel-grabbing slots.
