A priority crossing for NCN1 over the road to the overflow carpark, but the alignment could be better.

Another view of the road crossing in #88496 on route to the railway station, with NCN1 signage for route via Colchester town centre via a crossing across Cowdray Avenue.

A minor sideroad crossing on the Cowdray Avenue cycle track. I don't think the Dutch would do it like this!

A 'Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway' sign in order to cross a road to get to the next piece of shared-use footway.

Poor sightlines at uncontrolled road crossing from narrow line-segregated cycleway.

A shared-use footway around the Albert Roundabout, with toucan crossings across some arms. But the path in the foreground is just a footway.

A wide 40mph A-road but no room for a dedicated cycleway on this side. Just a shared footway on the opposite side.

This crossing is planned to be removed by Rodney Bass and Essex County council, and moved some 200 metres further away from the roundabout (on right). "t is proposed to remove the existing crossing on Colne Bank Avenue, to the west of its … [more]

"Elephant feet" crossing where Esso exit dissects Ipswich Rd.

"Elephant feet" crossing where Esso entrance dissects Ipswich Rd.

"Elephant feet" crossing of St Johns Green.

"Elephant feet" crossing where Alefounder Close dissects the Avon Way shared-use pathway.

"Elephant feet" crossing where Bennett Close dissects the Avon Way shared-use pathway.

"Elephant feet" crossing where Laing Rd dissects the Avon Way shared-use pathway.

"Elephant feet" crossing of Crouch St (see also #35712). Note the tight angle of approach into the underpass (which still carries prohibition sign). An adult may well be seen before it is too late, but a dog, child, pram, or even a … [more]

"Elephant feet" crossing of Crouch Street (see also #35713)... An "elaborate" contra-flow: two road crossings, watching for people coming out of shops, cars exiting blind driveways, dogs tied to railings... all to preserve free car parking … [more]

Toucan crossing of Essex Yeomanry Way, part of a short section of cycle way leading to/from Sainsbury's.

Pedestrian access to Sainsbury's.

New A133 junction with Essex University's Knowledge Gateway, seen here from the accompanying shared use path.

New cycle "crossing" in Crouch St. Still no symbols in the path to the right, but with all the illegal parking it's probably been hard to find a time when it's clear...

The new junction of the A133 and the University Boundary Rd is still some way off completion. This is the crossing that cyclists and pedestrians will be encouraged to use between the University and Greenstead.

The covers are finally off the "new" crossing of Layer Road.

The new Layer Rd. toucan crossing has been installed, but not yet operational. Once it is, crossing this busy road will be much improved.

Pedestrian entrance to the new Sainsbury's. It should also be the cyclists entrance since it is the most direct route, and closest to some of the cycle parking. The plans depict a pedestrian crossing in the road at this point, and a … [more]

Widened shared path on Boadicea Way. Note the crossing (see #27324) in the background with 'Cyclists Dismount' signs.

Dreaded 'Cyclists Dismount' signs appear at a crossing point on Boadicea Way.

The long-awaited toucan crossing of Layer Road, linking the Boadicea Way cycle lane and Garrison route is taking shape.

Adding the top layer at the new Layer Road toucan crossing.

Progress at the new Layer Road toucan crossing, connecting the Boadicea Way cycle path and Garrison route.

Construction of the long-awaited crossing of Layer Road, connecting the Boadicea Way cycle path and the Garrison Route has begun. As part of the works the bus stop is being relocated.

Work has begun on the long-awaited crossing of Layer Road, connecting the cycle path along Boadicea Way and the Garrison Route.

What better way to mark a new development than with a new 'End of Route' sign, on Cowdray Avenue. Cyclists waiting at the bicycle crossing (see #21802) will be blocking this pavement. The road has been resurfaced to beyond the 4x4 in the … [more]

Alternative crossing point (two-phase, pen-type) to the bicycle-only one on Cowdray Avenue (see #21802).

New bicycle crossing for Cowdray Avenue with its own light phase via button. Sited so as the "arms" are at funny angles to the new housing estate across the road, and have pinch points at the road side. A small set of traffic lights like on … [more]

This useful route between Winstree Road and NCN Route 1 crosses a couple of very quiet roads in this no-through Avenue. (This is before markings were added. See #21546 for how it now looks.)

The Cunobelin Way cycle path continues the other side of Temple Road. This crossing and others along Cunobelin Way could do with "elephant feet".

Nice wide shared path either side of Lordswood Road, facing Camulodunum Way. Could do with some "elephant feet" here.

The Chase is a busy cut through from Greenstead Road to St. Andrews Avenue and onto Greenstead. This is the view from it, looking across the busy St. Andrews Avenue. There needs to be a toucan here as it is a very well used crossing and … [more]

Faced with a flooded underpass (see #20797 and #20798), students will climb the boggy slope to the right, and risk life and limb crossing the busy A133 (see #20799 and #20800).

If the student makes it across (see #20799) the busy, 50mph A133 dual carriageway above the flooded underpass (see #20797 and #20798) they have then to negogiate the railings and the boggy slope (see #20801) down to the Salary Brook shared … [more]

The result of flooding in the A133 underpass (see #20797 and #20798) is that students will "chance their luck" crossing the busy 50 mph dual carriageway.

The road joining Mason Road has the benefit of Keep Clear road markings, but cyclists and pedestrians don't even have that, let alone a signalled crossing (see #19513).

No crossing whatsoever for pedestrians or cyclists either side of the busy Mason Road (leading to industrial estate).

Although not signed, according to the High Woods route map, this is a shared pathway leading to the hospital. Make this a toucan, and it would be a continuous route through to the hospital. As it is with the "pen" and where the path leads, … [more]

Shame for the "pen" (see #19502); this could be a useful Toucan making it a continuous route from the hospital, eventually to North Station.

From Napier Road onto Mersea Road the crossing is cyclable, but the route lasts just metres either side of it (finishing at the end of white railings).

Cycle route along the A133, from Greenstead to North Station, crossing St. Andrew's Gardens. A new 23000sq ft Waitrose has opened up with its main entrance off St. Andrew's Gardens. Despite this, no changes to this crossing point have been … [more]

Cycle lane crossing Dickenson Road, with a slightly curious sign.

Priority is given to the pedestrian/cyclist crossing on Bradford Drive, with give way signs and markings alerting motorists.

No traffic-calming or second stage for this cycle crossing point, making it very dangerous to cross the three lanes of motor vehicles.

Dangerous crossing of Greenstead Road. Cyclist potentially has to cross three lanes of traffic, looking right, past a bus stop, and left to Greenstead roundabout, which is actually behind, over the shoulder at this point.

Cycle crossing on Gavin Way.

Cycle lane crosses Berechurch Road opposite Chariot Drive.

Cycle crossing for Eastwood Drive.

Route 1 crosses Balkerne Hill.
