Total shit at the arse end of the car park. Do better @asda and maybe our towns wouldn't be so clogged with motor vehicles. This is a town centre store in the middle of Warrington FFS. https://t.co/AUHLNFNlCb See also #84872.

Sankey Street closed to cars to enable footway widening.

Cones are now less cluttered and there is a more substantial barrier. However, the cycle lane is still unnecessarily narrow and blocked at the far end: #140387

Entrance to covid-19 pop-up cycle lane blocked by cones and a sign. UPDATE NOV 2020: Covid cycle lane removed.

Pop-up cycle lane on Bold Street now has more substantial barriers ... obstructing the exit onto Wilson Patten Street

Cattle pen removed from central island to give more space to pedestrians as a resonse to the covid pandemic. Unfortunately the cycle is still very long so queues of pedestrians still build up.

Carriageway reallocated to create wider footway with temporary bus boarding platform as a response to the covid pandemic.

Parking spaces taken out to widen the footway as a response to the covid pandemic. I'm not sure why they didn't take the whole width of the parking bay - or indeed some of the carriageway, which is very wide at this point.

Temporary covid footway widening.

Temporary pedestrian crossing as a response to the covid pandemic. Unfortunately the pedestrian signal heads are facing the wrong way! It shows just how much road space is available. Update 2nd July: Pedestrian signal heads now facing th ... [more]

Covid-19 funding used to fund a very short stretch of this long needed improvement of this stretch of cycleway #52592 - (they didn't get as far as #84321) You would have thought that they would have cleared the vegetation while they were a ... [more]

Covid-19 road closure on Academy Way leaves a gap for cyclists. (if a bit on the tight side)

Someone forgot to include cyclists on the the covid-19 road closure sign.

Cyclists exempt from the covid-19 road closure on Winwick Street. Unfortunately the sign at the other end doesnt mention cyclists #137723

Covid-19 road closure of Barbauld Street. This creates an opportunity to create a cycle route from Warrington Town centre to the south via Arpley Road (in the distance #137710 ) avoiding the Bridge Foot Giratory. A crossing of Wilson Patten ... [more]

Opportunity to create a cycle route into the town centre from Arpley Road to the recently closed stretch of Barbauld Street (in the distance #137717 ). Just needs a short stretch of cycle path from here to a toucan crossing of Wilson Patten ... [more]

The road is wide enough for marked parking bays so plenty of room to widen the pavement, but what does Warrington Council do? Make the pavements one way! What are you supposed to do if you want to get to the high street? Walk all the way up ... [more]

Pavement so narrow that the sides of the bus shelter had to be removed - yet the council put signs up telling pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap". How? UPDATE 25th June: Carriageway space has been reallocated to widen the bus stop: #139538

The high street is very wide and even has space for parking bays, yet the best Warrington Borough Council can come up with as a response to the pandemic is stickers telling pedestrians to maintain their distance on the narrow pavement left ... [more]

What is needed is wider pavements - not signs telling pedestrians to mind the gap on a pavement that is obviously too narrow. The road is very wide here. UPDATE 25th June: barriers have been installed to widen the footway: #139535

Just putting stickers down to tell pedestrians to "Maintain the Gap" when the pavement squeezes between a building and railings is rather missing the point.

Good that cyclists are exempted from pop-up covid left turn ban at the end of Winmarleigh Street, but it is a real squeeze to get into the cycle lane past the sign at elbow height. It's not as if the road is narrow.

Cyclists exempt from the covid-19 turning restriction on Winmarleigh St. A shame the implementation at the junction is so poor #133599

A forest of cones makes the southern end of the Bold Street pop-up contraflow cycle lane a bit of an obstacle course. UPDATE 27th June: It gets worse. Now there are more substantial barriers blocking the exit of the cycle lane: #140387

Cycle bypass to the road closure on Academy Way. A bit of a squeeze past the sign.

Pop-up contraflow cycle lane on Bold Street - mostly occupied by cones.

cones obstructing the eastern end of the St Austins Lane pop-up cycle lane.Why? UPDATE NOV 2020: Covid cycle lane removed ... at the height of the second peak!

pop-up contraflow cycle lane on St Austins Lane. While the idea is good the implementation is dreadful. Until yesterday the road was taking 2-way motor traffic, so why on earth does the cycle lane have to be so narrow with signs further con ... [more]

Half-width covid-19 pop-up cycle lane on the Kingsway bridge. It is only 1.2m between the fence and the cones so much too narrow to ride comfortably. Heading in the other direction it makes it very difficult for cyclists to turn right onto ... [more]

Cycling permitted in Warrington town centre Pedestrian and Cycle Zone

Fair play to whoever in Warrington decided to build these underpasses when the dual carriageways were constructed - they're superb.

Touring family from Germany gets stuck once they reach Warrington Borough Council's barriers :-( They made it to Liverpool with the help of locals however after visiting Ireland they used a van rather than the Trans-Pennine Trail to get ... [more]

The Thelwall Penny Ferry. #http://www.allthingswarrington.net/Places/Places/thelwallpennyferry.html#.W9Xqwmj7Tcs Costs 11p and the ferryman loads the bike for free.

Wheelbender cycle parking in Cockhedge shopping centre - cyclists tend to lock their bikes to the railings at the end rather than use the stands.

Cycle parking on Buttermarket Street. Rather smart stainless steel stands, but unfortunately mounted too close to the wall so bikes tend to fall off. Well-used nevertheless.

This pub on the Trans Pennine Trail just in Warrington (from Trafford) has burned down and is now demolished (after many failed attempts at planning permission for converting to flats or housing)
