[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Cyclist position after riding down the steeper of the two slopes from Scarborough Bridge. This image tries to show how much space someone on a cycle requires. All images today: #168548 and links ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Pedestrian approaching the slope marked for cycles but used by most people as it's more direct, shorter and the first one you come to from this direction. The corner is a blind one, though. All ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Gap 3 of four (see: #168555) linking the car park with the cycle-ped-wheechair route through it. However this one is unprotected (compare with: #168558, #168560). Therefore cars will block it. T ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. There are four gaps between the car park and the cycle-ped-wheelchair route to provide permeability. Gaps 1 and 2 seen from the shared use route through the car park. The nearest gap is gap 1 (s ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A cyclist makes it up the incline to Scarborough Bridge. The corner at the bottom is blind and the angle tight. The previous three cyclists didn't get a runup, were in the wrong gear and had to ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The fence panel unnecessarily limits the width of the just reopened route. It’s also a hazard. See also: #168551, #168552. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A typical social group approaching the narrow gap on the reopened route. See also: #168551, #168553. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Many cyclists were still using the car park even when the all-users route (to the right of the wooden fencing) was less empty. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The route (the section in which these pedestrians are walking) is open at its new width. Wider than the original (see: #166422) but much less than the covid-19 coned off popup: #157641. The bays ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Crichton Avenue roundabout (junction with Kingsway North), York. Second image of this vehicle here today: #168546.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Crichton Avenue roundabout (junction with Kingsway North, York). I was here at ‘schools out’ time. Children and families heading for home but sightlines on the footpath and the Orbital route [http://yorkshireridings ... [more]

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

NCN7 and NCN75 on Linthaugh Road. This residential dual carriageway is traffic calmed with chicanes, but otherwise has nothing to make cycling safer.

Signage for NCN7 and NCN75 at the junction of Linthaugh Terrace and Linthaugh Road. The 'No Through Road' signs (backs to camera) don't exempt cycling.

The pop-up cycle lane on Braidcraft Road ends just short of the roundabout at Corkerhill Road. NCN7 and NCN75 join from the left after the roundabout but no connection has been made.

A pop-up cycle lane has been provided on Braidcraft Road, although the sign says it is a bus lane.

A pop-up protected cycle lane being finished off on Braidcraft Road, on what is a very high capacity road for such a low car ownership area.

A footpath connects the roundabouts of Braidcraft Road and Brockburn Road, where a dual carriageway was not built across the Levern Water. So much room to do something more appropriate with.

The layout of Lyoncross Road, where the inside lane of this residential road is hatched out on one side of the dual carriageway, and used for residential parking on the other.

Excess road capacity on Lyoncross Road is simply hatched out, rather than creating a two-way cycle track (leaving the opposite side for residential parking).

Pedestrian connection and crossing from Waterfoot Terrace to and across Brockburn Road, which could easily be improved to allow cycling, until such time as replacing the Barrhead Road/Peat Road roundabout comes about.

Finished cap on a section of the Chisholm Trail underpass wing wall.

Shuttering being installed for cap to Chisholm Trail underpass wing walls.

Shuttering being installed for cap to Chisholm Trail underpass wing walls.

Gate and railing at cattle grid on Stourbridge Common leave ncn51 with a clear width of just 1.15m. The adjacent gate when open leaves just 1.0m.

One (of previously two) cattle grids has at some time been removed where ncn51 crosses Coldham's Brook on Stourbridge Common.

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

The end of the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane, approaching the Linthaugh Road junction.

A bus boarder under construction on the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane project.

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press ... [more]

ncn51 on Stourbridge Common is rendered just 1.3m wide by greenery, and the other side is crumbling.
