  • Cyclists dismount on NCN route

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    If you follow NCN 7/14/70 through Durham from west to east, then after crossing Pennyferry bridge and proceeding south towards Fleshergate you find a no entry sign which adds "Cyclists dismount". There ought to be a contraflow cycle lane on this one way street. Round the corner just further on there is a contraflow lane!

    Update, 3rd May 2016.
    The road layout has been changed in conjunction with the new office blocks at Freeman's Reach. The road was previously wide enough to be two-way, apart from the problem of the bays for coaches to offload tourists. Now the pavement has been extended to enclose the bays, and the main carriageway is much narrower. What had been ordinary footway further along is now a ramp up to the office doors, with the footway now taking the place of part of the previous carriageway. There is a shared-use sign on the pavement, if you are travelling north, but "cyclists give way to pedestrians" has been added, as though they are aware that the space is not really wide enough. On the reverse of the sign is a "cyclists dismount" sign again, so there is still no means of turning south round the corner to join the short contraflow lane.

    By the end of Pennyferry Bridge there is now a little shared use sign indicating that it is permissible to cycle on the new walkway round the river side of the office blocks. Mixing bikes and pedestrians along this route will probably be unpopular.

  • Garden Walk is two-way

    Created by Simon Nuttall // 2 threads

    Garden Walk is a two way street for all but the last few metres at it's junction with Victoria Road. At that end there is a cycle bypass to the no-entry. It's a bodge up that only transport planners understand.

    I've experienced it myself, but a resident of the street tells me of her frequent problems with aggressive oncoming traffic (mostly van drivers) that barge at her as she rides up the road. When she tries to point out how the street works they don't listen and challenge her knowledge because of her french accent.

    I've suggested these two signage solutions...

    Blue signs...

    Big bicycle markings on the road...

  • Lansdown Road one-way

    Created by christhebull // 1 thread

    Lansdown Road is one way, hindering cycling in Clifton. The forthcoming introduction of residents parking zones ought to provide an ideal opportunity to introduce contraflow cycling here and elsewhere in Clifton. Minor changes to the build-outs by the Fosseway are likely to be necessary but contraflow cycling should not be an issue in terms of engineering or traffic speeds / volumes.

  • Lower Redland Road false one-way

    Created by christhebull // 2 threads

    A short section of Lower Redland Road adjoining Whiteladies Road is eastbound only, hindering cycling in this area. A simple remedial measure would be to allow legal contraflow cycling in the westbound direction on this road. Although no longer required for contraflows, a small traffic island exists at the exit of this one way street which could either removed, or utilised as the entrance to the contraflow. This would be relatively simple to implement as there are no intermediate junctions or traffic lights, only signs to be altered at either end and various formalities to go through.

    Plans are mooted to paint directional signs on the roads in the city centre to alert bike users to the legal direction of travel.
