Shared path signal crossing with ‘begging-button’. Prioritises cars within the sensor zone of the signal, otherwise changes immediately.

Awful surface and conflict with a pedestrian access with no sight line.

Newly installed chicane barrier at the access between Tesco and the shared path.

Rubbish narrow shared use pavement cycleway part of a new development. Cyclists and pedestrians tolerate these things rather than enjoy them. They look ok here but the problem occurs at side roads where priority is lost. All they acheive is ... [more]

No sign of any cycle parking on this new development.

Narrow footway access at Taunton station southern side. This is a bit silly really as there is plenty of space in the vast forecourt.

Hammet Street with big church at the end. This is a false one-way street, i.e. it is a two-way street but only cyclists are allowed to enter from the roundabout behind the camera.

This busy soft cobbled roundabout is in the middle of Taunton shopping precinct. I was pleased to see quite a few utility cyclists on my Friday afternoon visit to the town.

The highlight of my visit to Taunton.

Racks but petty notice with a not no cycling roundal taunts: 'No cycling in this area'.

Vivary Park - shared space permits cycling, at up to 5mph.

Vivary Park

Lovely ramp passing the Museum of Somerset, but notice the 'Cyclist dismount' marking.

Petty signs insisting no cycling and no skateboarding on what looks like a route designed with cycling in mind. The graffiti over the sign says 'Skateboarding is not a crime'.

Ambiguous signage: the roundal suggests 'No cycling' but the text 'Cyclists please dismount' is a request. Based on #93386 I reckon this was designed as a cycle route, and so the signage should be along the lines of 'Cyclists give way to ... [more]

This 'No motor vehicles' is a bit of a strange sight, but suggest that this route is for cycling (despite no cycling signs nearby see #93387).

Upgrade and reclassify (as appropriate) existing footpath/restricted byway between Bridgwater Bay Car Park and Stolford. This would provide a useful extension to the extant multiuser paths on the Stear Peninsula and provide a safe alternat ... [more]

Look at the amount of space available! And someone came up with this complete shit? Unbelievable.
