New cycle control for the crossing. Buttons are better than induction loops, which can sometimes fail to register the presence of a bicycle.

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.

Bus-stop bypass, Manchester

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.

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.

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]

Wheelchair user heading to the bus stop in one of the new cycleways in Rusholme's "curry mile" - build it and they will come! (But it looked like the bus-stop should have a higher kerb to enable level access to the bus)

Cycleway bypasses the traffic lights at Wilmslow Road's T-junction with Great Western Street in the "curry mile" Rusholme, Manchester
