There is a reason I walk the pram around Haringay Gardens rather than the Ladder during Harry's lunchtime naps. No cars. It feels safer, less polluted and so much quieter.

[Image taken 17.9.21] Scarborough Bridge, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] Another cyclist alerted me to this chap doing a survey on the bridge this week. Great to be asked my opinion of something that is really good. The access ... [more]

[Image taken 17.9.21] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. NOTE: No streetview at this location. The foliage has been cut back so the signs are visible (useful) again. The city is busy with visitors so will doubtless be c ... [more]

[Image taken 16.9.21] Sainsbury's, Burton Stone Lane, York. Two Sheffields, five cycles. Another rack needed. Plus to lose some onroad car parking spaces to accommodate the longer and wider machines I call 'York'cycles including CYC bikes: ... [more]

[Image taken 16.9.21] Sainsbury's, Burton Stone Lane, York. The two Sheffields (racks, 2 parking spaces apiece) are oversubscribed. Today was a typical scene... Looks like four cycles, in fact it's five when viewed from the other side: #174 ... [more]

Millennium Way Cycle path upgraded to protected separated path rather than narrow shared use path

[Image taken 16.9.21] Crichton Avenue, York. Other image here today (COUNT): #174176. The angles of access are tight from Foss Islands Way and the incline steep over the railway. Many people push. This is part of the Orbital. People lose th ... [more]

138 years after the Brooklyn Bridge opened, a new bike path takes a lane and @NYC_DOT takes biking across the East River to its logical conclusion. The only question is if one lane will be enough. https://t.co/I3efMZGHhU Review in this t ... [more]

Cycle Lane appears and disappears at a junction.

Dreadful footway shared use cycling scheme in Earl Shilton. At best the highway authority is trying to do something, but putting cyclists and pedestrians into conflict is not the answer.

Pinch point

Welcome to Earl Shilton, please drive carefully. Then there’s a mini roundabout and cyclists are directed onto the footway.

  • Icon 174198 New traffic signals have narrowed the useable footway, and also made it more dangerous for pedestrians.
  • Icon 174197 Keep Monkton Hill closed to vehicles, and don't reopen it to help ease traffic congestion.
  • Icon 174196 Bushey Arches is few yards away from Cockram Road, yet there is no footpath or cycle path access. There is sufficient space adjacent to Cockram road to create a footpath/cycle path. The space is owned by Network rail. There are derelict sheds under Bushey arches bridge (in Network rail premises) that can give way for a foot path. Would be much appreciated if council could coordinate with Network Rail and put this piece of land to a good use.
  • Icon 174189 We need a separate cycle lane between Wargrave and Twyford (Piggott School) the pathway is a shared footpath/cycle way which with some many school children walking is pushing the cyclist onto the road. It’s so dangerous as cars speed sling that road.
  • Icon 174187 Extremely dangerous for children both on foot and bike sharing a pavement. Children being forced to cycle on the road at peak hour with heavy vehicles and cars driving at speed. Add dedicated cycle lane on footpath and reduce speed along wargrave road in the school zone during school hours as with the primary school.
  • Icon 174185 This stretch is dangerous for the school children cycling and walking along here at peak times. There needs to be a wider path/cycle path before school kids are knocked into the road.
  • Icon 174184 Pavement far too narrow for all the children walking to school. Traffic speeds through the village and it's very dangerous. No alternative route to school. Speed cameras or 20mph limit needed
  • Icon 174183 There is a footpath but it’s also used as a cycle lane, there is not enough space for walking and cycling on this path especially for the hundreds of school children trying to walk or cycle to school safely. The traffic also is allowed to drive at 40mph even during school drop off and pick up times which is really dangerous.
  • Icon 174182 The speeding traffic (almost always well over 30mph) and narrow pavement mean there have been many near misses and often the wing mirrors are dangerously close to pedestrians' heads. Please introduce traffic calming measures to slow the traffic down or make the high street single flow (it is currently single flow through the crossroads. This could be expanded). Many school children walk along this very dangerous path and have no other paths to walk
  • Icon 174181 The pavement beside A321 is a footpath AND cycle path. At peak school times this is insufficient width for children to safely walk next to such a busy road where many do not adhere to speed limits.
  • Icon 174180 Widen the footpath and put bollards up to stop cars mounting the path.
  • Icon 174174 Separated Cycle lane needed, as parked cars narrow the road forcing cyclists to either play chicken with a truck, or go up onto the pavement and risk hitting one of the street lamps or a pedestrian.
