The A8 shared footway crosses the A726 at the Red Smiddy Roundabout. Nothing more than a dropped kerb crossing has been provided. No footways, shared or otherwise, are provided along this section of the A726.

A cycle slip for leaving the carriageway and joining the shared footway. An excellent example of how to provide for this manoeuver, but somewhat redundant in this case when there has been a shared footway along the other side of the road … [more]

This section of the A8 between Bishopton and Renfrew has shared footways on both sides, around and between the various roundabouts associated with Dargavel, which, if nothing else, means a choice of crossing locations if traffic happens to … [more]

The shared footway along Barrangary Road continues, and a cycle lane starts on the road. A dropped kerb is provided to transfer between the two. A 30mph reminder sign has been provided on a lamppost, immediately beyond the 30mph … [more]

The White Cart path at Pollokshaws Road. Although there is a dropped kerb at this side, there is no such convenience provided on the central reservation. See also #194884.

The dropped kerb crossing of Kennishead Road, at the end of the Brock Burn path.

The Brock Burn path reaches Kennishead Road, and a sign post points the way to the Darnley motorway path. There's a dropped kerb crossing here, and no dropped kerb at the start of the next path, so is that footway legal to cycle on? There's … [more]

The Levern Walkway at Carlibar Road, at park entrance, and the nearest dropped kerb for cycling from the road.

High Street, Milton at junction with Fen Road

Right turn or not? An unusual arrangement of the central reservation having a dropped kerb across the junction, rather than a gap, but nothing to say the turn is prohibited. A right turn for cycles at this junction would be advantageous for … [more]

[NOTE: Compare with a week later: #194141.] [Image taken 14.5.23] Malton Road, Huntington / York. Pedestrians and cyclists use other footway sign. Except it’s not a footway. It’s a formal cycling and walking route. It’s even segregated. … [more]

Start of shared-use footway (with barriers around the corner)

The new protected cycle lane comes to an abrupt end before the roundabout and cyclists who don't want to use the circuitous and unpleasant underpass have to wait for a gap in the motor traffic and pull out to the right - why can they not go … [more]

Van and car parking on the (presumably shared use) footway connecting the Craighall Road toucan crossing to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Speirs Wharf. The car is also blocking a dropped kerb (the dropped kerb can be seen better in #188011).

No cycle priority along Pinkston Road at minor side road crossing.

Cattlemarket Road under Bristol Temple Meads railway station. Clean air zone ends.

[Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace, junction with Hudson Street, (looking northbound), York. Scaffolding on no 2. Drop kerb – in the afternoon/evening this corner with its dropped kerb is often parked on. No sight lines. No dropped kerb. … [more]

A van parked over the dropped kerb that allows cycle access to Balvicar Street and Queen's Park.

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the West Highland Way path is not convenient if coming from Ellangowan Road, and is located at the narrowest point in the footway. A second dropped kerb would be desirable further along nearer the … [more]

Another view of the 'Give Way' line in #182981. Note the pedestrian using the diagonal cycle crossing.

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.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only, with barriers and a lack of a conveniently sited dropped kerb on the other side impeding cycling. Not a major desire line, but I came this way due to roadworks on the main road.

[UPDATE: The works finished early May. All signs have been removed.] [Image taken 23.4.22] Haughton Road (northern end), York. The drop kerbs look very new. (They are not visible on streetview July 2019.) Ditto this one: #181978. The one on … [more]

It made sense to someone… somewhere…

[Image taken 29.11.21] Burton Stone Lane close to the junction with Field View, York. The very narrow pavements in the other direction along Burton Stone Lane passing Mrs Greedy’s cafe (see: #176445, #176417), the solid lines of parked … [more]

[Image taken 23.11.21] Elmfield Avenue, junction with Malton Road, York. The off-road cycle lane is wider. The access to it - the grey section to the left of the carriageway in the image - has no upstand and is long. This should mean people … [more]

[Image taken 7.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. Many people know each other at least on 'passing the time of day' terms here. Likely because many are regulars - same time, same reason, same companion/s (dependants, dogs, cared-for people). But … [more]

[Image taken 7.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This is the limited sight line if you have stepped/scooted/cycled/mobility scootered/wheelchaired into the road for people crossing from the passageway that leads to Queen Anne's Road and schools … [more]

[Image taken 7.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This is the 'view' - the extremely limited sight line of the steep downhill, from the direction of Bootham, for people wanting to exit from the gap to the left of the railings (see: pink chalked … [more]

Image taken 4.10.21] This is the extent of the dropped kerb – 67cm. There’s very little turning space and then the width of the gap between the railings and the wall is max 97cm. Nothing at this critical crossing/access point meets even … [more]

Image taken 4.10.21] Bootham Terrace, looking towards Longfield Terrace, York. The entrance to the rail underpass towards Scarborough Bridge/the river/the rail station is between the bollard and the signpost. Road width max 384cm. In the … [more]
