Obstructions on cycle routes in Cambridge

South Cambridge

Rotherwick Way – Field Way Four red marks
No trailers
Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent This passage runs between two quiet cul-de-sacs. The posts should be removed. Is the division between cyclists and pedestrians really necessary?

(There is a very similar passage (not pictured) between Porson Road and Rutherford Road)

Gunhild Way – Cherry Hinton Road One red mark Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent This passage runs from Bowers Croft – Almoners Avenue and the concrete posts could well be removed. However, cyclists are more seriously obstructed by the lack of dropped kerb at each end.
Gunhild Way – Cherry Hinton Road: Gunhild Way end Three red marks Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent The barriers at the end serve no purpose except to obstruct two-way passage of users. It does not prevent cyclists from coming straight out at speed.
Gunhild Way – Cherry Hinton Road: Gunhild Way end Three red marks
No trailers
Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent This passage leads from the pelican crossing near Cherry Hinton Hall to Netherhall Junior School and is well used. However, the plethora of chicanes half way down are unnecessarily obstructive.

The entrance to Coleridge Rec. from Fanshawe Road Four red marks Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent An example where “Give way to pedestrians” would be more suitable than “No cycling”. Then the pram arms should be removed.
Corrie Road to Rustat Road (via the small green by the Scout hut) Four red marks
No trailers
Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent The posts with their pram arms should be removed from both ends of this short passage.
Radegund Road to Gisborne Road Four red marks
No trailers
Image of an obstruction, as described adjacent A typical awkward pram-arm post which makes it very difficult for cyclists. The whole post should be removed, as should the one at the other end of the passage.

Note the broken fence, which probably means barked knuckles too!
