58347Photo #58347Protected cycle lane next to a 30mph dual carriageway in Manchester near British Cycling's National Cycle Centre. This side road is for an event car park, quiet at times, very busy at others.

Crossing the side road has two options:
(1) move right into the space where the kerb was and cross the junction with motor vehicles who will be going straight or turning left.
(2) Go left and traverse a crossing over the entry arm of the side road where the cycle track merges back to the main road cycle lane just in front of the traffic light but behind a stop line (next to the car in the photo).

Note, I've not ridden this so I have no idea how the light timings work to keep riders safe.

A cider seller street decoration has taken the place of well used cycle parking. The security staff of the outdoor bar areas were keen to point out this cycle parking when you turned up at the bar with your bike. What now ?

Have they not heard of Vélocity 2025 ?

I have not found any replacement parking for the removed in any case there should be signs to direct to the new facility

UPDATE2: If anyone feels inclined to post details (like me) of anything on bus priority please TAG with buspriority - you don't need a photo just mark where it is on the map. If you want to let us know who you are contact@gmcc.org.uk subject buspriority or @GMcyclecampaign #buspriority also if you want to @officialTfGM

UPDATE: The Greater Manchester Bus Priority Package Consultation has been
launched. The main objective of the scheme is to “enable more people to
enjoy faster, more punctual and more reliable bus services from a wider
area across Greater Manchester to and from Manchester and through the
heart of the city centre” but also to “improve local links for
pedestrian and cyclists.” Full details at: www.tfgm.com/buspriority


The consultation is in two stages:

Stage 1: Roads parallel to Oxford Road/Wilmslow Road
From 3 Sept – 3 Oct 2012 (only one month window!)

Stage 2: Oxford Road
Consultation in 2013 (date to be announced)

At this Stage 1 you may wish to give a personal opinion online or at
a series of public events in the next four weeks. Log on: www.tfgm.com/buspriority
The extension of 20 mph limits is welcomed but these
should cover all residential streets in the area – and throughout the
city/conurbation. 20’s Plenty Where People Live.


ORIGINAL REPORT:
Upper Brook Street Toucan on Route to Manchester University Campus. The central reservation is too small for pedestrians AND cyclists. Although the image does not show any users at other occasions there is cyclist/pedestrian conflict because of the narrowness of the crossing particularly at the central refuge. The offset crossing presents an obstruction. It is MUCH BETTER than old facility though (see Google image below) where crossing was NOT allowed forcing people to cross over 2 or 3 busy roads. The crossing is in the area covered by a bus priority package www.tfgm.com/buspriority/routes/Pages/oxford-road.aspx . May be the crossing will be improved under that scheme. The lower image shows land that appears to be between uses may be part of that can be used to straighten the cycle path. Already the railings have been removed (see google image for before status)

42209Photo #42209Chorlton Brook bridge a couple struggled to get their bikes over the horse-steps. They were on a 2 week holiday with camping equipment, one heavily loaded bike, one loaded bike with trailer; so it was difficult to get the former through kissing gates, quite impossible to get the latter through. Date 4th July. If Manchester wants to become the cycle capital of England, it does need consider accessibility of its off-road routes. The more legitimate users there are the less ASB. Obstacles discourage legitimate users and do not deter illegal off road bikers. Clear "No motorcycling" signs would be a start AND a first step towards prosecution of illegal off road motorbikers.Obstruction:

Now the middle lane is left or straight on! Again no warning of change of layout (red sign with white lettering). Recent changes to road layout with no warning! 2 lanes of traffic turn Left whereas most cyclists want to go straight on

34610Photo #34610A two way cycle route on the left, and a one way bus lane on the right. Buses enter this lane at speed from a 40mph dual carriageway. Cyclists heading towards the camera are supposed to ride near the white line, close to and unsegregated from oncoming buses. The cycle lane forms part of the TransPennineTrail NCN62 so is regularly used by cyclists who are unfamiliar with this arrangement.Road environment:

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.

34601Photo #34601Nice use of LED lights in the dotted white line for the advisory cycle lane. Can't understand why this advisory feature is only part time from 7am to 7pm - does anyone know if this is unique and/or legal ?Road environment:

34598Photo #34598The Friends Meeting House does provide cycle parking stands on the far left of this picture. Unfortunately they are in a dark unfrequented area, and the limited natural surveillance is restricted further by the large 'advertising' board. The bicycle locked to the railings is in a much more secure position.Cycle parking:
