Manchester Wythenshawe https://twitter.com/Samvironment/status/1148339368509288450 . One wonders why all that money was spent on creating a level crossing and not allowing it to be used . Cyclists will ride on pavement after using dropped ... [more]

The cycleway here is narrow and the surface poor, but this isn't such a bad thing - go too fast here and you risk a head-on collision with another cyclist. I think the overgrowth needs cutting back though.

Didsbury Manchester Corrections @BBCNWT - road space NOT parking space; Vehicle tax NOT road tax https://twitter.com/DJLewisUK/status/1093222881448873984 LAs can do something to stop pavement parking @livingstreets @MayorofGM @DJLewisUK @R ... [more]

Timperley Brooks Drive . The horse stile remains unused. Wouldn't it be better to make the bollard spacing wide enough for the biggest horse but narrow enough to prevent motor car access . Horse riders are using the space between the bolla ... [more]

An interesting way to mark a cycle lane but the end result is that it's almost invisible to everyone, and completely invisible to those pedestrians with poor eyesight.

This cycle crossing is also perfectly placed for pedestrians, which invites conflict. It might be better to widen it significantly and remove all road markings - let people decide what they want to do.

Several potentially serious issues here. The first is the requirement to give way to trams approaching over your shoulder, with little warning that this is about to happen. The second is the angle of the rails as they cross the road - thi ... [more]

Central Manchester . A short 50 yard section of Southmill Street has been made 1 way . Surely this is wide enough to allow 2 way cycling and a safer quiter route to Albert Sq.

Another triumph for the all-powerful cycle lobby. Look at how much space they have managed to get away from the poor subjugated motorist. https://t.co/trskT70z6r

Chorlton/Streford Border on Hawthorn Lane . At least one of these barriers could be removed and still stop motor cars from using.

The traffic lights at this junction do not detect cycles approaching from Chelsfield Grove onto Maudeth Rd West - reported to GMUTC. Also when the pedestrian lights are green to cross Mauldeth Rd West this would be an ideal and safe opportu ... [more]

Unfortunately inward-opening doors pose a threat to cyclists in this tunnel.

Speeding, pavement parking and rat running, just a typical Manchester street. Just posting 20 mph speed limit signs is not enough on a wide residential street. https://twitter.com/juststepsways/status/709841734285598720 https://juststepside ... [more]

Van obstructs cycleway while waiting to turn onto the the road The planter supposedly "protecting" the cycleway obstructs the view from the proper give way position.

Shared use footway/cycleway crossover section.

"No Cycles" sign on a bollard on a facility obviously designed as a modal filter to permit cycles!

Segregated shared-use cycleway crosses from one side of the pavement to the other. The markings on the ground are contradicted by the sign.

Cycleway emerges onto the road into the path of a bus starting from the bus stop. At this point the cyclist is hidden behind the bus shelter and the bus drivers attention is devoted to their right mirror - looking for a gap in overtaking tr ... [more]

Fortunately the cyclist was riding slowly so was able to avoid this left hook.

Cyclist has to swerve to avoid car pulling across his path on the Curry Mile cycleway.

Old Trafford by the Three Legs of Man pub dropped kerbs here would help on these quiet roads and encourage permeability for cyclists.

Excuse me if I don't have 100% confidence in the security of these bike stands https://t.co/8TOgTEkAk7

How not to perform a right hand turn: Swerve across the path of a bus just as the lights turn green.

Signalised pedestrian crossing crosses cycleway - but there are no signals to stop cyclists when the green man shows.

Exemption from No Right Turn permitting cyclists to turn right from Oxford Road into Brunswick Street is welcome. Unfortunately the raised kerbs prevent cyclists getting from the cycle lane to the correct lane position to make the turn.

Cyclists heading straight ahead along the cycleway are given a green light at the same time as drivers turning left across their path. Thus designing in left hooking collisions. This cyclist is sensibly avoiding the risk.

Yet another speed bump and more painted signs warning pedestrians to look.

Yet more rumble strips to control cyclists speed as they ride behind the bus shelter that obstructs the view of pedestrians crossing the next speed bump #87806..

Another speed bump - this time with zebra stripes on the top. A few metres along there is yet another rumble strip behind a bus shelter #87805.

Another rumble strip to keep cycle speeds low - as you approach the speed bump #87804.

Attempt to mitigate conflict with pedestrians accessing the bus stops. Speed bump on the cycleway slows down cyclists and large painted signs warn pedestrians which way to look. A bit further along are some rumble strips #87803.

Rumble strips needed to control cyclists speed to mitigate conflict with bus passengers. A few metres later you come to a speed bump #87802.

SLOW sign at the entrance to a cycleway that veers behind very well used bus shelters. The degree of conflict with the very high volume of pedestrian traffic around Manchester University means cyclists riding here (rather than on the adjace ... [more]

Restrictive chicane barriers on NCN60, alongside GMPolice's Claytonbrook site.

Multiple obstacles on NCN60 in Gorton, Manchester. Various ways through, each with a different level of risk.

Hybrid (raised) cycle lane in the door zone of a marked parking bay.

Cycle lane in the dooring zone of a parking bay. This is made much more dangerous by the fact that the white line conceals a slight step down to the main carriageway which is likely to cause a cyclist to fall into the path of motor traffic ... [more]

Solid white line at cyclist entry to ASL

A perfect place to park at the University of Manchester (the sign is a bit odd - presumably the footway is still the footway and the cycleway is on the carriageway)

A perfect place to park at the University of Manchester

New Cycle Hub at Manchester Royal Infirmary - with railings blocking the entry

Whitworth Park, Manchester - clearly not set up for cycling

The University of Manchester's Whitworth Museum won the Museum of the Year award for its extension but still only has minimal cycle parking a long way from the entrance

No idea where the cycle lane is.

@GMcycling why doesn't this bike lane continue straight? I have to look behind me to see if cars are turning. https://t.co/3fiWpaktmF

The studs on the Dantzic Street cycleway don't align with the toucan crossing across Miller Street, and the street furniture does not help guide users to the crossing either.

Sign obscured by lamppost.

A narrow path between Smedley Lane and Boyle Street, signed as a line-segregated foot/cycle path, and without a dropped kerb at the end.

If you're walking to the city centre, you'd be quicker heading to the left.

Concrete strip and broken fence across path at road crossing.

Path diverges from road but is impassable due to fallen tree.

Pointless piece of cycle track to bypass minor road junction.

Unswept path at Hendham Vale

Some signs in need of a clean. The route to the City Centre diverges at a point off to the right, and the railing of a flight of steps can just be seen in front of the bridge.

A very poor entrance to the Hendham Vale path next to Queen's Park.

With signs for NCN60 on the Hendham Vale path visible in the background, why not create a new path across this grass? See also #72645.

A chicane barrier each side of the gate in Queen's Park, but with the cycle route heading for the Hendham Vale path to the right, why exit the park here at all? See also #72646.

I'm sure this could have been implemented better. Bear in mind anyone approaching this on the road will be cycling at speed, possibly being followed by a bus (or some other large vehicle) in the bus lane.

UPDATE4 A few neighbours have reported attempted muggings on Hulme Street (by the Mancunian way crossing) over the last few weeks. Please stay safe if you are in the area after dark! https://twitter.com/redbricksonline/status/105760833704 ... [more]

@OfficialTfGM @ManCityCouncil How do you legally continue to ride towards Deansgate from here? https://t.co/sLmLMkxyhN

More parking is needed at the entrance to the town hall extension. The racks at the rear of central library are usually full.

A good shared space at Mcr University has now been turned into this - including cycling on the right!

No Cycling, alas, in this newly streeetscaped area.

Why the Cyclists Dismount sign whenit's a normal public highway and there's a cycle phase on the crossing?

Narrow kerbed cycle lane in the door zone of marked parking bays on the pavement. If you manage to swerve to avoid a door opening in your path then kerb will ensure you fall over. Lethal.

Manchester NCN60 and NCN62 Chorlton/Sale border near Jackson's Boat Pub. A set of steps is to be removed and replaced with a ramp suitable for cycles. Jackson's Bridge will be closed from 19th to 21st Feb and 18th to 20th March for upgradin ... [more]
