Most disappointed to see these new barriers, which have been installed in the past few weeks on Via Urbis Romanae, Colchester. A complaint is winging way to @essexhighways and the location will be added to our barriers map. What a waste of … [more]

A short section of cycle lane isn't enough for a parent to allow her kids to cycle on the road, after cycling along the riverside path.

Cycle lanes, a weight restriction and a box junction on the bridge over the River Colne.

An internal car park road yields to the cycle path, and is closed off with bollards when not in use.

Quiet on a Sunday morning, but plenty of room for motoring under the Turner Road railway bridge in Colchester. The lane the cyclist is in is a bus lane.

A cycle lane suddenly appears on North Station Road, approaching another roundabout, just when cyclists need to be positioning themselves further to the right unless they happen to be turning left.

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

Jumping between footway and carriageway cycling at each roundabout, but with no obvious thought given to the transition.

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]

Short section of mandatory cycle lane leading to Creffield Medical Centre.

Buses, bikes, motorbikes and taxis only allowed over the Hythe station level crossing; NCN route 51 turns right, along with all other traffic

"Elephant feet" crossing of St Johns Green.

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

Small bike symbols in the gutter on Crouch St have been burned off and replaced with large symbols in a much more prominent part of the road.

"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]

Little bike symbols in the gutter along Crouch St have been burned off and replaced by some larger ones, in the centre of the lane.

Little bike symbols in the gutter (see #34309) along Crouch St have been burned off and replaced by some larger ones, in the centre of the lane.

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.

Kerbing on St. Johns Street has been removed and replaced with temporary bollards in preparation for the Tour Series criterium on June 2.

Cycle symbols have been added to the access road alongside Norman Way.

New ASL and traffic lights on Drury Rd.

New tactile road surface on Crouch St. This won't slow anyone down as it is barely noticeable by bike, let alone a car, or even a lorry.

New ASL on Shrub End Road.

Toucan crossing on Layer Road. Neither side to the right has any route to continue along though, except a short pathway leading to Catherine Hunt Way (see #21332).

With industry and Hamblion Transport based along Hawkins Road, it can be quite daunting.
