34603Photo #34603'How to restrict access to a cycle path' by RX51PXF. It was here for several hours, and there was plenty of space nearby if they wanted to be more considerate. Maybe the driver believed they had a 'right' to obstruct the pavement and dropped kerbs because they had 'paid road tax'.Obstruction:

72087Photo #72087#space4parking on the footway by MMU's new Birley Fields development. Note the man in the white van carrying a fire extinguisher was genuinely loading but had to stop in the carriageway as all the loading bays were parked in. Also note the lack of safe #space4cycling - hopefully this will be fixed during CCAG2 as the rest of this road is one of its key routes.Obstruction:

72644Photo #72644A gate at the entrance to Queen's Park, with gaps at either side for cycling and walking. However, the red sign says "No Unauthorised Vehicles" without saying if cycles are allowed.

The rising bollards behind the gate appear to be a bit of an expensive gimmick.

One of the cycle route signs in the background seems to be pointing the wrong way, although the path it points along reaches the same point in any case.

The cycle lane forms part of the TransPennineTrail NCN62 so is regularly used by cyclists who are unfamiliar with this arrangement.Road environment:
