Motor free road - the bypass to the gate could be better.

Approach to the traffic free section of Academy Way Cycle symbols encourage cyclists to adopt a sensible road position to avoid left hooks.

Sankey Street closed to cars to enable footway widening.

Temporary covid footway widening.

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

Modal filter outside the Parr Hall

Cyclists may turn right at the lights

Traffic calming hump with cycle bypass

Toucan crossing. Good response time on pressing the button. Wide gently angled stagger on central reservation.

20mph limit and bus lanes on approach to Chappleford.

Woolston Park greenway crosses Grren Lane on a flat topped hump. The ramps are at a gentle angle so it is comfortable to cycle along the road.

Trans Pennine Trail (NCN62) follows a quiet road along the south bank of the Mersey

Smooth road, 15mph speed limit, virtually traffic free

Rising bollard prevents motor traffic abusing the bus-only link.

"Waffle" pattern grid - no slots to catch cyclists wheels.

Contraflow cycle lane

Road space reallocation - lane one of the dual carriagway converted into a cycle lane

Traffic calming - pinch point with cycle bypass

One-way street with cycle contraflow

20mph Speed limit covering Warrington Town centre

A road closure that exempts cycles. Nice and simple!

Advanced stop line with central approach lane enabling cyclists to adopt a good road position to turn right, and to avoid the laft hooking problem with kerb line approaches. Sadly, soon after the photo was taken, this facility was remove ... [more]
