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]

Solid white line at cyclist entry to ASL

These bollards were supposed to be spaced 1.7m apart (for 1.5m clearance) but they've not been installed to this specification. The new wide waiting area was worth campaigning for - it's a vast improvement over the original 'S-bend' proposa ... [more]

Looking along Long Millgate from the cycle track crossing the tramway. The right turn ban at the mini-roundabout should exempt cycles since the road that way is buses, taxis and cycles only, unless the ban exists due to the unusually close ... [more]

'No Through Road except cycles' on Long Millgate leading to cycle track crossing the tramway.

No Entry except trams and cycles, straight ahead into Exchange Square. The painted cycle lane appears to encourage cyclists to risk left hooks rather than cycling closer to the tramlines. The road-width decreases suddenly just behind the ... [more]

No Left Turn except cycles, near Exchange Square (see also #72729).

The Dantzic Street cycleway studs lead users to the carriageway, but for how long is it two-way? The base of the bollard that has been removed could be a trip hazard for pedestrians.

Cycles allowed to make right turn outside Oxford Road station into Whitworth Street West (and thus access Oxford Street), when other vehicles restricted to left turn only.

Nice use of LED lights in the dotted white line for the advisory cycle lane. Can't understand why this advisory feature is only part time from 7am to 7pm - does anyone know if this is unique and/or legal ?
