Pointless obstructions. Most of the users here are on the cycle route, so why do they have to give way to the odd rare bus using the adjoining road?

More pointless anti-cycling furniture

Perhaps someone at the council has a business making these barriers?

Yet more stupid obstructions on this route. Why are they here? Why not use bollards of the type seen behind the kissing gate?

More ridiculous obstructions along this otherwise good cycle route.

A pointless obstruction on one of the poorer parts of this cycle route.

Good surface on this route.

There are a few slightly bumpy bits but generally this is an excellent route between Tottington and Bury. The existing barriers have been partially removed.

Silly barriers blocking access to the cycle path. Utterly pointless.

Sale Tram Stop Decent cycle stands on the platform with good access and CCTV coverage . In the background are 2 lockers and the entrance to the cycle hub #89640 #90022

Sale cycle hub see also #90022 and #89640 . stickers have been posted recently on the entrance doors to the cycle hub here. The stickers warn that the premises are alarmed. Have alarms recently been installed ? Alarms are welcome becaus ... [more]

The towpath on the Forth & Clyde Canal merges into the footway of the adjacent road at Lock 16. Signage includes directions to the Union Canal, although the route is just along the main road.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The main towpath is across the water.

If the footway is narrow, of course the roadworks will block the full width.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway crosses Westburn Avenue to get to the signalled crossing on Glenfuir Road and the bridge over the canal to the main towpath. The footway widening doesn't quite make it to the end of the shared footway.

The Westburn Avenue shared footway crossing Blinkbonny Road.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

A cycle workstand opposite a cycle shop in Falkirk High Street.

An area map and the Falkirk Active Travel Hub in the High Street.

I initially thought this was some kind of time-restricted 'No Entry' but on closer inspection the plate underneath is for loading restrictions.

A major junction in Falkirk town centre. The road ahead on the left is restricted for motor vehicles to local buses and loading (see #101534).

End of the cycle lane and part-time bus lane on Camelon Road, and start of Falkirk town centre's one-way system.

In theory the bus lane should help separate the cycle lane from the traffic in the general traffic lane, but almost all of the car drivers were choosing to drive in the bus lane outside of operational hours.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

Sale in Trafford - Meadway Health Centre. These 3 stands are far too close together and too close to the wall meaning fewer bikes can be parked here. There is plenty of space at the front near the road to place more cycle parking more overt ... [more]

  • Icon 101577 Water street near Victoria and Albert Hotel funky drawbridge is quite fun though, when you cycle over it, it tips! But it no longer leads anywhere. Hopefully this bridge will lead to somewhere when the long awaited replacement to Princes Bridge is opened (it's complete for use by cyclists but is waiting construction and development work to start and complete by 2020 at earliest) #11938 #87848 . The SFA (Strategic Regeneration Framework ) hopefully includes the opening up of both sides of the River Irwell as green linear spaces
