Nice cycle tracks along here, but I'm not sure the junction is all it could be.

A bus stop bypass in construction on Liverpool Street. A good deal of the carriageway has been reclaimed for active travel here.

Construction of a new cycleway includes a bus stop bypass.

A family of planters on Frederick St. This road is lovely and quiet now that it's been modally filtered.

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The minimum recommended gap between uprights i 100cm. This is a shopping area and also has family groups who would share locks and therefore al ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] The gap of just 72cm between the ends of the run of Sheffields is a lost opportunity to create space for wider and longer ('York'cycles) or car ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Deangate, York. [NOTE: Racks in York get moved around. Streetview is not showing this set of toastracks.] This damage shows why racks need to be protected by bollards or another solid object as is the case in High Pet ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Rodgers, Julia Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. [NOTE: streetview shows the pre-2018 iteration of this outlet.] A report in the local paper from February 2018 says there will be a new entrance to this furnit ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Rodgers (www.rodgersofyork.co.uk/), Julia Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. [NOTE: streetview shows the pre-2018 iteration of this outlet.] The facade dwarfs the underwhelming cycle parking provision. See longer ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Asda, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. This was my approach route. But how to reach the cycle parking? Or even find out where is it? (And as for finding your way on a cycle out of any of the car parks here and back to th ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Asda, York. Saturday of a half term and it seemed Monks Cross was the place, the only place, to go... There was also a match on at the LNER stadium nearby. The racks at Asda were nearly full and getting to them was a ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Aldi, Kathryn Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. The Sheffields here are too close together to be practical (see: #175243 and links). But at the end of a run of racks there can be room for a 'York'cycle and even a ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Aldi, Kathryn Avenue, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. The Sheffields (racks) are under cover- tick. They are quite close to the trolley bay - sufficient that you can keep an eye on your stuff while collecting/returning ... [more]

[Image taken 23.10.21] Grosvenor Terrace junction with Scarborough Terrace, York. The temporary diversion sign - that has come from elsewhere - has been moved onto the pavement again. I moved it round the corner - behind the no entry sign. ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] In front of Dunelm (retail outlet), Clifton Moor retail park, York. [NOTE: streetview shows previous layout of car park.] 100cm is the minimum recommended width between supports. But I believe this should be a minimum ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] In front of Dunelm (retail outlet), Clifton Moor retail park, York. [NOTE: streetview shows previous layout of car park.] If space is left - but the gap is protected - ends of runs of racks can provide valuable parkin ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] Alder Way, New Earswick, York. If you are coming from York through the attractive, motor traffic-free Bootham Stray in a wheelchair, on a mobility scooter or on a cycle that has more than two wheels you arrive at this ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This fence seems to attract signage. What is the sense in this one? Who are the pedestrians being diverted? From where to where? Which direction does this route take them? Is this yet another ex ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] Riverside entrance to York rail station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The temporary sign [see: #173819] has been moved to behind the gates. The content of the stabilising sandbags remains though it is ... [more]

[Image taken 24.10.21] York rail station, York. Free water dispensers have now come to York. They reduce plastic waste as you supply the container. (Ideally one you can you over and over.) This one is on the main concourse. There’s a seco ... [more]

Thank you to Ealing scrutiny committee for tonight's decision to keep Fishers Lane open for sustainable transport only. This creates a north-south cycle route linking @EalingCouncil and @LBofHounslow parts of Chiswick @_petermason @deirdre ... [more]

Feeing for the owner of this newish looking bike locked up on the corner of Berwick and Gt Marlborough St in Soho- the roadworks further along the road mean that large vehicles turn right and perhaps don’t check what they’re running ove ... [more]

Shared-use path whose useability is severely impaired by ending abruptly at the bottom of a dip, meaning that one must stop to rejoin the road going back uphill behind the camera with all momentum lost. It would be a cheap but massive impro ... [more]

Two-way cycling along the pedestrianised Frodsham Street, you meet service buses head-on which ought to terminate at the new bus station across the canal instead.

Painted bollards at Anderston Cross.

Parking stand at Tesco on Sealand Road.

[Image taken 4.7.21] High Petergate, junction with Duncombe Place, York. Sheffields (this design of cycle rack) added earlier this year are now protected with bollards either end. This is good practice. Nearby are unprotected racks - and in ... [more]

[Image taken 21.8.21] Monks Cross, Huntington, York. [Note: streetview shows the previous layout of this site.] Drivers parking or picking up (food orders or humans) on the perimeter cycle route is a constant issue. Pedestrians use it perha ... [more]

[Image taken 14.4.21] Asda, Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The bollards are presumably intended to protect the Sheffields (racks) from motor vehicles accessing the space where I was standing to take this image. However, the ones at each e ... [more]

[Image taken 22.6.21] Aldi, Monks Cross, Huntington, York. Good points: the racks are Sheffields; no lifting is required to get a cycle in or out; there's no problem with manoeuvring backwards; they are under cover; they are close to the tr ... [more]

Sign still in situ 22.10.21 [Image taken 16.10.21] Grosvernor Terrace, York. What diversion? For who? All road users? People on cycles...? Original image: #174661

This sign and cone were still here 24.10.21. [Image taken 18.10.21] Longfield Terrace, junction with Sycamore Place, York. The diversion sign (context see: #174818) and cone have been moved to the left just in front of the silver vehicle. T ... [more]

[Image taken 17.10.21] York railway station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Hurrah! At last the two underpasses have imagery in them. The photos are of places along the LNER route. Several years ago I did a walk around with a ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21] North Street, junction with Tanner Row, York. Part of the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion. The sign on the left has no value. It's a ghost sign: just a frame. It’s a hazard and an obstructio ... [more]

[Image taken 22.10.21], Library Square, York. There’s room on the Sheffields (racks) for longer and wider ‘York’cycles and trailers. This is appropriate because behind the camera is the library. People carry children on a variety of b ... [more]

The sign and the grit were still in situ 22.10.21 - a Friday so before a weekend and ahead of a half term. [UPDATE: LNER have not responded to my emails. I emailed Network Rail. Today (a second day of heavy rain in York) it responded: "This ... [more]

  • Icon 175257 Cars are parked on either side of the road though nearly all the houses have parking. Controlled parking zone would help with this
  • Icon 175256 Very narrow pavement and cars go very fast as they cut through to the a20. There is a nursery and riding school as well as a junior school further up and it would help with walking to school if the pavement was wider
  • Icon 175229 This is a residential area with lots of flats. I've recently moved here and there is no secure cycle storage for people in flats with no outdoor space. It would be great if cycle racks, or even better if bikehangars could be installed in this area. Bikehangars protect your bike from being exposed to all weather conditions keeping it in better shape which is more sustainable. They are used all over London and are a fantastic, well used resource that encourages more people to cycle. They can fit 6 bikes in a single car parking space - each cycle space is rented out so you have an allocated space and know that you'll have secure parking for your bicycle. I hope something can be implemented here as it is a worry that there is nowhere secure to store my bicycle. I live at no. 8 Emperor Court, but am sure other streets in this area would also benefit from some form of secure bike parking.

  • Icon 175189 Dorchester Road is used as a rat-run to get to Hinckley Road and avoid traffic lights. Constant levels of speeding up and down hill, and cutting corner, making it dangerous for pedestrians and residents.
  • Icon 175188 Ride-on Santander Cycle scheme is a great thing for the city, yet there are not enough locations outside of city centre to make it accessible for those outside of student populace. Focus on residential areas to allow commuting would be highly beneficial. For example Western Park.

  • Icon 175171 Dingy and unsafe route through this park. Would not use this path on my own or in the dark. Needs lighting and more security. Streetscape architects need to take safety of vulnerable pedestrians and cyclists into account when designing routes and new estates. Often I have to walk 10-15 minutes longer to stay on main roads in order avoid a dangerous and unsafe areas like this.

  • Icon 175167 Limited pavement on Windingbrook Lane, Northampton, NN4 - several areas only have pavement on one side of the road, leading to pedestrians having to have to walk into the road to keep socially distanced. Uneven, rubble paths in some areas also not good for wheelchair users, children’s buggies or vulnerable pedestrians and need reinstating properly.
