Milton Keynes Central from 10th floor of an hotel. The MK cycle hub getcycling is in the shot, see #64434. https://www.getsmartertravelmk.org/cycling

Chunky timber (?) sections occupying a plausible location for a culvert for realigned brook under ncn51

Lots of waterproof membrane embedded in the brook fill??

Newly spotted in the compound, an 'asphalt paver'

Dead end signs now in place at experimental modal filters. Just missing an 'Except Cycles' sign although the cycling direction sign is almost as good.

A driver stopped on the Beith Street toucan crossing, which then changed to the pedestrian/cycle phase, and she is also using her phone.

A cyclist taking a short-cut away from the official crossing point on NCN 7, across the Riverside Museum approach road, despite having to bump the kerbs. There is a significant desire line evident in the grass.

A Next Bike hire station right outside the Riverside Museum.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Taller piles, bigger hole, beside eastern end of jetty.

Taller piles, and the hole they contain is beginning to look big enough for a culvert on the new brook alignment. Meanwhile, detailed (cosmetic?) brickwork at the end of the jetty.

  • Icon 151842 Improve cycle detection at traffic signals. The vehicle detection on the traffic signals under the railway bridge doesn't seem to reliably pick up cyclists (possibly insufficiently sensitive detectors), leading to excessive waits at red signals until a motor vehicle approaches from behind as well - at quiet times, this can be a long wait!
  • Icon 151841 Improve cycle detection at traffic signals. The signals seem to default to the A632 movement, and while motor vehicles approaching from Spital Lane and Piccadilly Road are detected and given greentime, this don't seem to reliably pick up cyclists (possibly insufficiently sensitive induction loops?)
  • Icon 151840 Add a traffic signal stage for cyclists from Linden Avenue. While the Chatsworth Road and Storrs Road arms of the junction are signalised, the Linden Avenue arm (providing a cycle connection) is not - so to cross from Linden Avenue to Storrs Road as a cyclist, you need to find gaps in the opposing flow from Storrs Rd to A619 west, or nip across in the intergreens.
  • Icon 151839 Add a pedestrian/cycle route into the retail park at the western end. There is a clear desire line behind the bus stop but not accessible to less mobile people and often covered in litter. It's ridiculous to make people go all the way round and puts them in more conflict with vehicles at junctions
  • Icon 151838 General improvements to drainage needed along this stretch of Colchester Avenue. Pavements are often blocked or vulnerable to spray from buses and other vehicles
  • Icon 151837 General improvements to drainage needed along this stretch of Newport Road. Pavements are often blocked or vulnerable to spray from buses and other vehicles
  • Icon 151836 Hawks Road is too busy for the size of road and due to narrow pavements and amount of pedestrian and cycle traffic. Perhaps make one way to resolve.
  • Icon 151835 Pavement wider, overgrown hedge and pavement not very wide.
  • Icon 151834 Roundabout is inconvenient and unsafe on foot and by bike. Subway is unpleasant. Redesign junction with better crossings for pedestrians and safe provision for cycling.
  • Icon 151833 This road is very dangerous for people dropping off children at Fairlawn school at school drop-off and pick-up. Pavements are far too narrow, and traffic is far too heavy and fast. The road should be for cyclists and pedestrians only at these times - say 8-10am and 3-5pm. It would allow children to walk to school safely.
  • Icon 151832 Cars make school drop-off and pick -up very dangerous here. The road should be for cyclists and pedestrians only at these times.
  • Icon 151831 Cars are very dangerous on this road at school drop off and pick up. Motorised vehicles should be banned at these times.
