Cycling is now permitted in Lower Castle Park, so long as cyclists stay between the green lines. The cycling prohibited signs have been relocated (see #36150), and new painted signs layed.

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, on Lexden Road.

New multi-directional route sign on Prettygate Road. It is completely obscured by the hedge from one side of the road, and reliant on the owner to keep it trimmed back. One of the "arms" is staggered but more need to be for them not to … [more]

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, at least from this side of Church Lane. From the other it is completely obscured by the hedge (see #27158), just as the sign this one replaces was (see #17827).

New route sign on Straight Road. Okay from this direction, but from the other, the white sign pointing the same way attached to the lampost obscures it.

New route sign on Heath Road.

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, on Church Lane.

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, on New Farm Road. From the path next to it, it is entirely obscured by poor placement (see #27149).

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, on Clairmont Road.

New multi-directional route sign whereby one "arm" blocks view of another, on Sportsway.

New route sign for Maypole Green and Friday Wood at Abbey Gates. The Garrison is missing and it is positioned too far from St John's Street to be useful. If it looks like there is a sign on the back of it, your eyes are not playing tricks. … [more]

If the signing is ambiguous, be in no doubt this is the END (see #21974). On Severalls Lane (part of NCN Route 1).

End of Route and Cyclists Dismount signs, at junction with Monkwick Avenue. These should be replaced with useful route signs.

New widened pathway between Monkwick Avenue and the Garrison network of paths. There needs to be a route sign here.

New route sign on the Salary Brook path, for University, Longridge, Greenstead centre, Hythe station, and Town centre.

Route signs around the Garrison have had new timed signs and "finials" attached to their stem. Why does the Council think it's okay for cyclists to crane their head to one side to read a sign?

New route signs for Maypole Green, Friday Wood, and Town centre, on Flagstaff Road. No mention of the Garrison. OK from this direction, but if approaching from Abbey Field, these signs are of no use.

New route signs for the Garrison, Maypole Green, Friday Woods, and Town centre, on Circular Road South. Abbey Field to the right.

New route signs for the Garrison, Maypole Green, Friday Woods around Abbey Field, and Town centre under the subway. Hard to see from Circular Road North, Flagstaff Road, and Circular Road East.

New route sign for Greenstead Centre, and pre-existing North Station one, on St. Andrews Avenue. There needs to be a Town Centre route sign facing Alyssum Walk.

New route signs for Longridge, Salary Brook, Greenstead, Hythe Station, and the University, on Bromley Road.

Route sign for University* on Bromley Road, opposite The Beehive. It is also the start of the Salary Brook path and should be signed as such. There should also be a drop kerb here. * Showing the same journey time as an on-road route sign … [more]

New route signs for Salary Brook (right) and Longridge (ahead), on Avon Way. There needs to be another sign for Greenstead centre, Hythe station, and Town centre for continuation from #21933.

New route signs for Greenstead, Salary Brook, Town Centre, Hythe Station, and the University on the corner of Hawthorn Avenue.

Greenstead has a good network of wide pathways making it possible to navigate traffic-free, if only there were route signs.

Route signs for Colchester and Tiptree from the shared path link with Winstree Road (through Woden Avenue).

New route signs painted onto the pathway at the entrance to High Woods Country Park. The arrow pointing into the park should have been painted onto the road, as cyclists won't be able to read it (or see it) on approach due to the building … [more]

Various route signs on East Street, by the toucan crossing. Town centre is actually less than half a mile straight on, rather than a mile and a half to the right. And if cyclists follow the alternative route to Leisure World, they won't see … [more]

Route signs for Lexden, Prettygate, and Town Centre at the end of Beech Hill.

Route signs, with the new High Woods route marker on top, facing houses, thus completely useless to approaching cyclists.

Route signs, with new High Woods route marker on top, for Country Park, Business Park, and Community Stadium. But what is to the right? Leisure World and Town Centre.

Shared use pathway at the beginning of Mile End Road, and an advisory cycle lane on the road which both end around the corner (see #20880). Also a new route sign for the Community Stadium.

The view from Thornton Drive toward the entrance to the new High Woods route, but without signs no-one will know. The signs inside the entrance, facing houses (see #17794) need to be rellocated.

Warning sign on Norman Way. The Cycle Lane sign should be arrowed both left and right, as Lexden Road (ahead) has a cycle lane in both directions.

Toucan crossing on Brinkley Lane; shared use pathway; route signs to the Business Park and Community Stadium.

North Station and Greenstead cycle route signs on the corner of Harwich Road.

Various route signs at Severalls Lane mini-roundabout.

Route sign for Town Centre, Friday Wood, and Roman Camp. It is the last useful sign for Friday Wood, as the route is incomplete.

Route signs for Town centre, Maypole Green, and Friday Wood.

Route signs for Town Centre and Friday Wood. (Willows pathway is not a cycle lane, but in theory could be given it is as wide as adjoining pathways.)

Route signs for Town Centre, Friday Wood, and Monkwick.

Good cycle route signs are spoiled by placement... they are on the exit of pedestrians tunnel rather than the cyclists!
