New shared-use crossings on the A61 in Wakefield.

Very short cycle lane just to lead cyclists off the road.

Not a lot of cycle parking in central Wakefield

Just 50m of cycle contraflow needed here (and the left-turn sign seems to have been turned around).

Bridge from the car park to The Hepworth, Wakefield - there's a Cyclists Dismount sign.

Road closure, Wakefield

Road closure ahead - so of course there should be an Except Cyclists plate on the sign.

Shared use under this railway bridge, Wakefield

Snicket to Wakefield cathedral

No motor vehicles except buses and taxis here in central Wakefield

Potentially useful way around Wakefield's one-way system

Traffic-free route to Wakefield Westgate station

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

The access to the canal is only from the footway in front of the shops and no account has been taken of the desire line to go straight to and from the carriageway.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

Bicycle threesomes are already appearing at the station cycle park [Ed: photo was originally placed near Ellington, Cambs]

The sign in #100506 facing the wrong way and a sign for the westbound platform at an unnamed railway station. The direction to the eastbound platform is different and the sign for it is visible in the distance.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

Signs for getting to Drumchapel station by different modes. Wheelchair users should ignore the directions given here if going to the eastbound platform, since the footbridge at the station is stepped. There are no cycle facilities on the ro ... [more]

Cycle signage for Forth & Clyde Canal (NCN 754) at Blairdardie Road, but no dropped kerb UPDATE 2018: A dropped kerb has now been provided, see #100514.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

A damaged sign facing the wrong way.

The cycle route directions from Drumchapel station to the Forth & Clyde Canal are different from the pedestrian and wheelchair user directions.

For some reason there is a signed cycle route between the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie and Drumchapel railway station.
